TLDR Leshak Guide

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there, you might be wondering why I posting this when niki has a great guide on leshak. When I fly leshak, I usually refer to the guide as I usually fly logi. However the guide can be too wordy for quick references hence this guide. So for those who want the complete guide, click here. If not, let's begin!

GENERAL TIPS
1. Use common sense please!
2. Always listen to FC!
3. Leshak is a snowflake
4. Precursor BS V is very important (than Spec V)
5. Always Occult, Mystic when u enter site or burning to anchor spot
6.Ship is all about spooling up aka shoot the ship as long as possible (Exceptions: Spawn Trigger and Outuni)
Avoid Spawn Trigger; Primary Outuni
7. Break spool of Mystic if you can get 20 cycles of Occult on targetted ship
8. Need to burn? Just burn as you have cap stability
9. Keep target @ 15km range. >20km, start adjusting position (burn)
10. Always shoot something (preferably cruiser and above)
11. Utility slot not important but if possible armor reppers are good choice provided your not limited by CPU
12. If contested you can overheat your gun continuously
13. Depending on fleet comp, you might have to adjust targets
14. Call out spool targets to prevent leshaks spooling on same target
15. Expect damage aggro especially TCRC so lookout and broadcast on time. You might even save AAA or other leshaks with remote armor reppers
16. Only possible fleet role for Leshak (Not ideal) is VVV (lack of agility and occasional gun range problem)

Site Guide
True Power Provisional Headquarters (TPPH)

First Pocket
Mystic Outuni, burn to Occult range of Osti (tag 5)
Shoot Occult whatever in range while burning to gate
Sniper Lite - Replace Outuni with Vylade
Fleet Lite - Occult Ountuni > healthiest Osti

Second Pocket
Mystic first Antem, burn to Occult Osti (tag 4)
Burn to Third Gate and shoot whatever is left
Sniper Lite - burn to Occult 2nd Antem
Super Sniper Lite - Shoot Mara (Stay stationary)
Fleet Lite - Mystic Mara, burn to Occult Osti (tag 4)

Third Pocket
First Wave
Mystic last Romi and burn; 2 choices
Help HHH - Shoot Romi backwards
Shoot Osti (tag 3) - DO NOT SHOOT LAST OSTI
Anchor Position - 80km from beacon; 20km from tower

Second Wave
Occult 2nd Last Osti (Tag 6) > Romi or whatever is left
Fleet Lite -Primary Intaki and follow above statement

Third Wave
Occult last Outuni then one Osti then whatever is left
Tower spawned = drone on it = bio break

Nation Rebirth Facility (NRF)
First Wave

Mystic last Vylade, burn to last Osti and Occult
Anchor Position 75km beacon, 45km to right of tower
Sniper Lite - Primary Vylade
Super Sniper Lite - Shoot Mara (Stay stationary)
DPS Lite - Anchor on VVV to shoot Osti next wave

Second Wave
Occult Yulais even w/o tags
Burn to next DPS anchor spot (VVV)
DPS Lite - Shoot Osti backwards

Anchor Position: Burn to right of tower 20km away

Third Wave
Occult Yulais, then whatever left
Start burning to first anchor spot when 3 ships are left
Anchor Position 75km beacon, 45km to right of tower

Fourth Wave
Mystic last Outuni
Burn to Yulais but stop at 30km away from AAA (logi range)
Mystic Yulais and Occult Osti/Whatever is left
DPS Lite - Occult Osti backwards
Fleet Lite - Outuni > Last Intaki > Osti

True Creations Research Center (TCRC)
Mystic last Outuni and start burn to tower
Occult tower as soon as possible and keep firing while hugging fellow Vindis and Leshaks
Tower 50% hull, lock up tag X (schemael and auga)
Tower 20% keep drones and align to broadcast
If you do it correct, you will definitely catch damage aggro so on time broadcasting is IMPORTANT to stay alive in TCRC

Advanced Tips
1.  Leshak requires heavy isk investment so go all out to bling it (Abyssal Sinks, Abyssal LSE, Augmented Ogres)
Abyssal Sinks (>1.14x dmg mod, 7% ROF) cost 150-250m each (22.7-23%) Anything higher than 23% you will looking at 500-2b each. Click here for available contracts.
Abyssal LSE (>3200HP) cost 200-500m. You need all the shield buffer you can get! Click here for available contracts
2.  When contested, you can overheat much easier compared to other ships. TCRC contesting will come down to how you manage overheat on your gun
3.  Mobile Depot with Sensor Booster + ECCM Script for anti-jam for TCRC. 
Swap MWD with sensor booster and swap back when tower at 50% hull. Do it at your own risk

Implants (Personal Opinion)
6    EO-606
7    Ogdin's Eye Coordination Enhancer
8    EM-806
9    RF-906 (6%) / Pashan's Turret Customization (7% for 5b)


1.  Above Implant Set is suitable for pilots that cross-trained in other ships (eg. logi dps sniper) with the choice of slot 1-5 and 10 up to you.
2.  If Leshak/Bowhead Pilot, consider High-grade Ascendancy Set for slot 1-5 + WS-618 for slot 6 (The new warp patch effectively makes this set equal or if not better than the above set; 4.86 AU/s)
3.  If pure leshak pilot only, you MIGHT want to consider HG Mimesis Implant Set (Not Available) as the other sets’ higher damage potential doesn’t offset the long spool time. CCPlease give us HG set we deserve :D

Hope this TLDR Leshak guide helps you as much as it has helped me thus far.

Low grade Mimesis only pays off after about 2,5 minutes of shooting. It's NOT good for us. (Mid grade isn't on Pyfa yes, so can't do the math there)
Also Shield Slave sets might be in the not-too-distant future, so maybe don't spend billions on a set when you can get a better one in a few months.

I agree hence I mentioned holding off the purchasing it until the high-grade set appeared. I should have rephrased it better :D BTW is there a way to edit the post? I'm been wondering whether there is this function or not?

4th wave NRF  ,  DPS Lite -  go for last tagged otuni then last tagged osti  /  osti in reverse after that  .   ??

 

TCRC entrance 1 cycle towards otuni 2 into occult then burn after tag 1 otuni die   ?? 

Lock AAA for possible armour rep if in range .

On tower can lock other leshaks if you have armour reps and rep if needed , Watchlist your fellow leshaks .

 

Just suggestion here , not trying to say better or preferred .

So there are a few things i dont completely agree in this. 

But only 1 thats worth mentioning. The rest is meh.

WS-618 is just a too good implant even on its own without ascendencies. Always better than EO-606.

As a Logi enthusiast, I like the EO-606. On the Shak though, WS-618 is great, you should not need the cap so much. I am just glad nobody is saying Nomads here.

With all that (vindi style) burning on niki guide (esp. NRF) that EO-606 do help a tad for me. :D WS-618 I feel works best together with Ascendancy Set; standalone not effective IMO; I rather focus on in-site efficiency

Ty topandbottomallover fsdsgf, I missed out on that portion

DPS Lite - Occult Osti backwards

Fleet Lite - Outuni > Last Intaki > Osti

For TCRC Entrance; that's the vindi way of doing it which I do it sometimes due muscle memory but leshak in tcrc is about burning to tower asap

Mimesis mid-grades are on hoboleaks now. Looks like the same -33% ramp-up per implant, so the only thing that would change is the max output after several minutes of shooting. So totally pointless for our purposes. It'll still be 145 seconds to out-dps an un-implanted Leshak.

How to Leshak: 

1. Become a l33t Vindi pilot. 

2. Become a l33t Nightmare and Mach pilot.

3. While doing (1) and (2) train Precursor Battleship V and the skills for a Leshak to at least Mastery IV (pref with Gun spec V)

4. Buy a c10 billion isk Leshak with Officer DPS mods or Abyssals better than faction and Aug Drones or Geckos and a Mobile Depot to refit to TE / DDA and SeBo / MWD.  Ideally you want an Officer gun too - that will cost another 5 to 10 billion.

5. Fly the ship. You will know what to do because you are already a l33t Sniper and DPS pilot and already know site mechanics, spawns and all the roles and where to go to be of max use.
