Eve Online Condor

Posted on  by admin

Sign-in to your account. Home; For friends; Tools; Forum. Description: The Condor is fast and agile. It has limited cargo space so it's not very suitable for trading or mining. It is best used as an assault vessel in a hit-and-run type of operations. Condor (Long Range Tackle): Beginner, Advanced - The Condor is a little slow but has excellent targeting range. Fit requires missile skills. Executioner (Long Range Tackle): Beginner, Advanced - The Executioner's strong powergrid removes the need to use a MAPC, although you may have to use autocannons in order to do so. Genuine Anti-Gankers care more about Fun than ISK. The main goal is to ruin the ganker's day and having fun doing it. You actually play EVE when Fun becomes priority, not ISK. 'the risk of having your day ruined by other people is the cornerstone with which EVE was built' -CCP Solomon.

Importable Fit

This is a missile ship. You will need to train at least Missile Launcher Operation Level IIand Light Missiles Level I before you will be able to use its weapons.

Weapons

The Condor uses 3 Light Missile Launcher I launchers.Light Missiles are the “long-ranged” missile system, reaching to a much longer rangethan Rockets and dealing more damage per strike, but firing much more slowly,requiring more fitting space, and dealing less overall damage over time with poorer application to small targets.

The launchers are loaded with Scourge Light Missile ammunition.As the Condor’s bonus to missile damage applies only to Kinetic damagesuch as that dealt by Scourge missiles, you should nearly always use this ammunition.Additionally, its Kinetic damage is well-suited to defeating the Guristas piratesmost commonly encountered in Caldari space.You should keep about 500 spare missiles in your cargohold.

Additionally, this fit uses a Ballistic Control System I in a low slot.This passively increases the damage output and rate of fire of its missiles.

Defenses

This ship uses a Small Shield Booster I in one of the mid slots to repair incoming damage.

It also fits a Damage Control I to increase its resistance to damage.

Utility

The 1MN Afterburner I provides your ship with additional speed. This both makes it easier tocatch enemy ships and also makes your ship harder to hit.

The Small Capacitor Booster I can provide your ship with an instant injection of Capacitor.This module must be fueled by charges, which act as consumable batteries. Load it withCap Booster 200 bought from the market, and bring along as many spares as you can carry (about 10).

The Stasis Webifier I helps your missiles apply their damage better to the slower targets.It also allows you to hold an enemy at bay while you stay at range.

Rigs

Rigs are passive modifications to a ship, trading off one attribute against another.Unlike modules, rigs cannot be removed without being destroyed.As a starter fit, this fit makes limited use of rigging, since many “optimal” rigsare often relatively expensive and may be difficult to find near your starter station.

This ship is fit with two Small EM Shield Reinforcer I rigsand one Small Thermal Shield Reinforcer I rig, to improve the shields’ resistance to damage.

How To Fly

This is designed as a long-range sniping fit. Stay at range from your targets,ideally about 15km, and lob missiles at them from out of range of their return fire.The fit is rather fragile, and is not designed to tank incoming fire for extended periods;if you are being overwhelmed, retreat to range and pick off pursuers one by one.

This ship has a Capacitor Booster. As the charges for it are quite bulky,you can carry only a limited number. Try to save the Booster charges for emergencieswhen you need the extra capacitor to run your repair module continuously.Under normal circumstances, use your repper sparingly, off your ship’s base capacitor.Keep an eye on your capacitor, and try not to let it go below about 25%.

As always, if the incoming damage is proving too much for your shipand you’re beginning to take structure damage, warp out.

Future Improvements

The above fit should be usable with starting skills unless otherwise noted,and it uses relatively cheap and widely-available modules.

As you accumulate skill points and ISK, you will be able to fit more potentmodules to your ship, increasing its effectiveness. These modules may not bereadily available outside of trade hubs, but it can be worth the trip.

We recommend working towards the following improved fit:

The improved fit will require the training of the following skills to use all installed equipment:

  • Weapon Upgrades Level IV
  • Hull Upgrades Level IV
  • Energy Grid Upgrades Level III
  • Missile Bombardment Level IV

Your character starts with very low missile skills. If you intend to continueusing missile ships, we recommend focusing your training on somemissile support skills.

The improved fit uses a 5MN Quad LiF Restrained Microwarpdrive rather than an Afterburner.An MWD takes a large amount of capacitor to run,and causes a large increase to your ship’s signature radius,meaning that unlike the Afterburner, it is not useful for evading enemy fire.However, it provides a massively increased speed bonus.

You should activate the MWD only when moving to a new position or enemy,and disable it once you have arrived.

The improved fit removes the Capacitor Booster, so that pilots are not required to restock on bulky Cap Booster charges or spend as much manual effort on managing their capacitor.

To compensate for the loss of the Capacitor Booster, the ship replaces the anti-EM and anti-Thermal rigswith two Small Capacitor Control Circuit I rigs, and adds a Cap Recharger II, enhancingits passive capacitor recharge. Remember that this fit is designed to outrange its enemies,and should use its shield booster sparingly. Keep an eye on your capacitor, and trynot to let it dip below 25%.

Eve condor fit

The improved fit removes the Stasis Webifier, as the web is unable to reach out to maximum missile range.It is replaced with a Missile Guidance Computer II, improving the range and precision of its missiles.This module should be activated before beginning combat, and left on indefinitely.

The Missile Guidance Computer is loaded with a Missile Range Script, to double the rangebonus at the expense of losing the precision bonus. This script is not consumed by use,so you only need one. It can be swapped for a Missile Precision Script for better damage applicationagainst small targets at closer range if desired.

The increased range from the MGC, combined with the Missile Bombardment skill required to equip it,will greatly increase your maximum range. Once you are flying the full Improved fit,you should increase your fighting range to about 25-30km.

Nearly every module has been improved to a “meta” version, requiring less fitting spaceand granting improved effectiveness, but costing more ISK and/or being less widely available,or a t2 version, which costs more ISK, requires more skillpoints, and is harder to fit:
