Post Guide to tech 19 ship SD
Zeus+, Green, Hibernation, any damage increasing aug, OS4.

ogogo


Zeus+ increases energy regeneration and range to acceptable levels while increasing damage.

Green makes energy bank, RoF, and range sufficient enough to deal decent damage against other Panther SDs.

Hibernation gives shield bank, energy bank, critical hit rate, and hull while reducing (¿) maneuvering ability. Equip this aug or play a different class.

Any damage increasing aug gives damage.
Rose for maximum cheapness, Zeus+ for range and energy regeneration, Athena+ for survivability and PvP (wat?), and Sup. Combined for being a baddie.

OS4's range boost is useful for getting big lasers.



Zeus-, Hibernation, Adv. Exc. Rage, and any elec temp or energy regeneration aug can be used for silly Hybridized Paxian Selenologica and Tech 18 IK Mini ships.

What about Reaver Aug?

Reaver aug requires Piracy 19 or 20, doesn't it?
Never examined the aug for that reason, but it definitely can replace the Green or generic damage increasing aug.

Wattage aug works too, but I doubt that anybody would want to use it on a tech 19 ship.

Reaver Augmenter does require Piracy 19.

It's also rather hard to get if you can't kill Earthforce Battleships.

They're in the EF layer -- what is so hard about them?

Crazy long range aura, stupid amounts of burst dps potential, massive EHP tank? For any SD (or even sniper) that's below the T20 threshold or isn't already well versed (meaning Zeus+, etc type augs) in a Ukuk/Vazuk, the EFBS is your worst nightmare.

Your options:

- Get a decent sized T20 group with at least one shm, zerk, and sniper.
- Chip away at the armor at long range with V/M mag/ZS for 5-15minutes.
- Hope you can do AWC+ level burst damage in a T19/T20 ship.
- Waste SSS-type tweaks as you attack and retreat over and over.

Those things are scary if you're a seer. Fucking 2500 range radx aura that affect stealthy enemies...

I'd like to see you do 30k mining DPS over 20 seconds. If you can get 1/3 that I am already impressed.

Certainly not in a T19 ship, but that number is possible in an UberRun AWC(+).
