Best PREMIUM frigate for top tier PVE?

Hello all

 

let’s say i got some GS to spend, and i’m not planning on playing this game forever.I want to go out in style.

I want to try some bling, and if that will suck, i’m done. 

 

So. What premium frigate would you suggest i get for pve?

I got my eyes on the mauler, imho the sexiest ship in the game, but i really, really have NO idea on what goes and what doesn’t go in high tier pve.

 

Thanks in advance

All premium frigates are good for high tier PvE. Mauler and Black dragon will give you DPS. With patriach you will have lots of tank and AOE damage. And the mammoth will always be welcomed as a healer + drones for killing mobs.

 

It all depends on your preferences.

 

I use Mauler for melting stuff, Patriarch in stages with lots of mobs, and the Mammoth if nobody else gets a healer.

cheers mate

Generally if you are doing PvE then guards can do most of them easily due to high HP (Exception maybe pirate base as you cannot simply tank that boss damage). I like LRF but they can be a kind of specialised play as you have to look after your lower amount of hitpoints and maximise the use of damage.

 

The Mammoth is ok for PvE due to healing however don’t expect it to tank like a guard or Naga. You can make it heal fast though and it does a nice bit of damage if you use the CPU slots.

 

Personally I like LRF in PvE since I make a challenge of getting more kills than the randoms using their guards and engies ;p But using a guard or engi is going to be more casual most times due to pulsar, tank, heals and drones.

 

By the way, there may be a sale on premiums soon so you could wait for those if you haven’t purchased already ;p

Mauler hands down. Just fit it this way and u are set to never lose any PVE unless u are trying to defend something.

The dreaded graphic card of doom!!!

any guard is pretty good

Mauler and patriarch are awesome!

Positron mauler is like a really good graphics card – you can get along without one, but everything is awesome if you have it.

 

Also, the mauler looks like a graphics card.

You seem to be implying that people won’t use this build in PvP.

I mean you CAN, but good luck being close enough to hit anything and not get immediately focused down.

When PvE mission changes best premium Frigate ship also change.

 

If you ask one premium frigate then go for Patriarch which is all-rounder for all PvE but with different configuration & weapons.

wait 2 more day before buy any

Switch your rank 2 implant and you have like 4.2km range. If you need more range, switch a CPU to horizon for something like 5k range. If you need more range…

suggest me a Patriarch fit, pls?

 

i was actually considering either a patriarch or the empire LR, after seeing the yt video of a guy soloing missions…
