Standard Praxis Fit?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if this fit is ok (not for fun fleet on 25th but for normals ops)

With my current skills it has 101k ehp, 650 dps and 78/68 em/therm resists. 20k raw shield hp, goes 700m/s and cap that lasts 12 min. With perfect skills it has 738 dps, 110k ehp, 742m/s, and cap that lasts 16min and 20 seconds. It can also use blasters etc but I'm using EMP ammo here, which applies better with the sanshas rats.

When Praxis was released WTM commanders thought about implementing it, or not.

The debate ended with a negatory.

Im sorry, but WTM does not allow Praxis in its fleets.

There is no sense to accept Praxis. With Blaster fit Hyperion doing 300 DPS more. With Arty fit Maelstrom doing 200 DPS more. Both of them are enought cheap to start your adventure with WTM Family.

Also 1) Your thermal resist is too low by far lol 2% is a lot. 2) Incursion rats are omnitanked. Normal sansha have a resist hole but incursion rats don't.

So I got my start in incursions running in a Praxis with the EVE Uni Vanguard group and I fell in love with the ship. When TDF announced their Praxis fit I went and flew a Praxis with them for a week and played with fits until they figured out that I wasn't really particularly new and a Praxis probably shouldn't have an X-type MWD or TII guns on it and told me to fuck off and buy a Nightmare. I flew a pretty stupid praxis on the fun fleet a few months ago with WTM as well, so I'm one of only a few pilots to fly this hull with a WTM fleet.

Suffice to say I've done quite a bit of theorycrafting on this ship. me and the Praxis have a bit of a love affair and I've probably flown one in more incursion sites than about anyone else in new eden.

On to the point of this post... The blaster hyperion does not do 300 DPS more as was stated above by Naveth.

I have a shield & blaster Praxis fit that has better tank, very slightly better cap stability, identical tracking, and better dps than the entry hyperion with gallente battleship at lvl 4, for 70 million less than the entry hyperion.

Dissadvantages are that it is 300m/s slower, the fit is tighter on CPU, and a larger % of the dps is from drones. (Whether the drone DPS ratio is really a negative isn't something I'm completely sure about but it's at least worth noting)

The obvious additional advantage though is the lack of required battleship skills, which is especially noteworthy given that WTM does not require a battleship skill to 4 and most hyperion pilots likely have this skill at 3 or lower.

 

The Praxis fit and the current Entry Hyperion fit for comparison:

So the tank is a bit hamfisted sure, but it works. Like I said, the praxis is a shield ship and you can do a lot with 7 midslots.

The CPU is pretty tight as well for a new player, but the nos isn't really very useful on either ship so it should be fine to pull that off.

With Maxed out skills this Praxis pulls 1247 DPS

The Hyperion with Gallente battleship to 4 and otherwise maxed skills gets 1196.

With all 5 skills the Hyperion hits 1261, only 16 DPS higher than this Praxis.

 

As for shields...

This Praxis gets 105k ehp, 71.1k in shields. Min resist 72.8. Average Resist 72.8.

The entry hype has 98.8k ehp. 54.9k in shields. Min resist 70.0. Average resist 73.65.

 

Without the 2nd LSE it still hits 90k ehp. 55.3k in shields. It's quite a bit less hull buffer than we might like but the shield ehp is actually still fine at that level so it shouldn't feel squishy to the logi. (and if it blows up who cares it costs 135 mil)

I'm well aware of that and I'm not trying to be critical of management's decision to not allow the ship. I just found this thread and realised I have a fit that challenges the assertion made above that the praxis puts out less dps than T1 WTM fits.
