niki's take on the WTM Leshak

Recommended Posts

I think the real skill in flying the Leshak is getting into occult range and that means managing your mwd cycles .

 

Knowledge in the sites and spawn points  , what you can kill before you have to be at the next spot .

Mid-grade Mimesis implants stats are available now. Seems to be the same reducting in spool-up, just more max dps. Since we've already concluded it takes more than 2 minutes on the same target to out-dps a non-Mimesis Leshak (see my previous post): do NOT buy the implants for incursion running!

Apparently the implant 

Zainou 'Gnome' Weapon Upgrades WU-1006

doesnt apply on Leshak Guns. Good to know. Credits go to Svarta Madam for telling me.

Ty Lord, I'm going to place my last hope on the HG Mimesis set then :P

100 isk bet, HG will also take 145 seconds to outdps a non-implanted Leshak. The per-cycle ramp reduction is the same for both existing sets, mid-grade just raises the max DPS further.

So this guide is just a little bit outdated now, mainly because of a few changes in EVE or in WTM.

1. Leshak's tracking is not as good with t2 ammo as it was when i wrote this. Shooting a frig with t2 ammo is actually painful now.
2. Thankfully there are more Leshaks nowadays in fleet than just 1 or 2. So in NRF you might want to think about split in fleet Leshaks between Yulais and Osties.
3. Logies are recommended to bring light combat drones now, so at least one armor repper would be pretty cool on each Leshak.

With...
  -SS patch
  -Leshak agility nerf
  -all the WTM upgrade policies and addons to it
  -all the contests going on
  ...Leshaks are less and less actually useful for fleet, unless you spend at the very least 6 billion on it, but probably more.
  And you could just fly a 4 bil vindi and be simply more useful generally all the time.
  Of course there are some exceptions (when you have 10+ newbro/rookie/metagun) to this, but most of the times it is true.
  Granted, it is more effort. Harder, sure. And again sometimes people want variety, which is okay.

UPDATE:
BECAUSE OF RECENT CHANGES IN THE GAME THE LESHAK CURRENTLY IS NOT SO OPTIMAL FOR HIGHSEC INCURSONS. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO NOT START TO TRAIN INTO IT OR TO NOT BUY IT IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT YET!
HOWEVER WE CANT KNOW WHAT CCP WILL CHANGE NEXT, AND MAYBE THE LESHAK WILL RISE AGAIN AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE.
