Gjálfrmarr – [Cheetah, Haugbúi Nýsa]

With the amount of Wardecs we get and with the type of fun I’ve been getting into recently I wanted to build a ship for combat scouting and general sneakiness. I wanted it to be able to scan down war targets/criminals/suspects, provide warp-ins and be able to weasel it’s way onto some Killmails, hence the Civilian Gatling Autocannon, ‘Hypnos’ Ion Field ECM I and Warp Disruptor II. This Cheetah is absolutely not a first point ship but once your friends are on field you could hold range provide some ECM, hold second point and throw some Autocannon rounds away downrange – hoping to get some fun KM’s with this lady.

I use this Cheetah as an exloration and scouting ship. Pretty standard fare I think. I’m not 100% sold on the Cargo Scanner but at my current skill level it’s a pretty tight fit so I’ll have to stick with it for now.

Spent some more time last night in Hek trying to get in on some CONCORD kills but the parasites were being pretty sneaky and we didn’t get any joy but I did happen upon a Suspect Flagged looter, Salamander Firebloom. After he blew up I took a look at his Employment History and felt a little pang of guilt as he’s pretty new but it passed quickly – there are hard lessons to be learned in EVE.

Now there is only so much one can take of the chatter in Local in Hek – it gets pretty brainless and mind numbing after awhile and I needed a break so made my way back to the Low-Sec home and decided to head out in the Cheetah, scan down some Cosmic Signatures in the nearby Low-Sec systems and see if I could find some exploration sites or a Wormhole to check out or a Combat Site to jump into.

Found a number of Signatures in Offikatlin and started scanning them all down. Just after I started my scans another fella jumped in System with me, Saftsuze, who was in an Astero and he also put Probes out but I wasn’t too concerned about him as we were both cloaked up. I warped around cloaked to each Signature and Bookmarked them and while I was doing this Saftsuze left System so as I landed in the one Data Site in Offikatlin I figured I’d just clear it quickly…

Was working on my second can when Saftsuze reappeared in System and I only had a few nodes left to clear so started clicking furiously – apparently he had Bookmarked the sites as well and he appeared on Grid, pretty much right on top of me, as I was mid way through my furious clicking – just a few breaths later I was scrammed, webbed, taking damage and then BOOM!

I know better, but I was being greedy, this was my hard EVE lesson for the evening – what I should have done was cloaked up as soon as Saftsuze reappeared.

Oh well… fun was had, and this is EVE ~ Shipwrecks happen!

Spent my EVE time yesterday hunting.

I started the session out in “Veiðimaðr”, scanned down and jumped into a Class 3 Wormhole. Spent some time cloaked up wandering around seeing if there was any activity, no joy, then scanned down and identified all the Cosmic Signatures in the System. Marked a few other Wormholes and found one Central Serpentis Survey Site. I decided to camp out for a bit so made a perch about 45km off all the hackable cans and waited… and waited… and waited…

I was in the C3 for just over an hour, I passed the time by browsing with the IGB and would hit D-Scan every so often to see if there were any Probes in system. Eventually I got bored so tore back home, re-shipped into my Cheetah then went back in and hacked the site. Will have to try that hunting tactic another time.

After that uneventful hunt I thought I’d try my first go with the 20 frigate plan so activated “Banahǫgg Spá I” and went for a long roam through some Low-Sec Systems – again no joy.

I was passing through Hek on the way back to my Low-Sec staging home so thought I’d see if the icebelt in Nakugard was getting any activity so re-shipped again into “Naglfar – RAGE™” and headed that way. There were a few miners there, none in any really soft targets but there were a couple of Retrievers working the ice. I set up a little bit below them so I was within range of my launchers and started the waiting game again. D-Scan was showing a Thrasher and a Catalyst in system so I didn’t think it would be too long before someone got the Ganking itch and I was correct. It was maybe a ten minute wait before Mr.Kryz Keedra arrived at the icebelt in his Catalyst and started approaching Josie Peppers’ Retriever. After he fired and got his Criminal flag I de-cloaked, locked him up, hit him with both ‘Hypnos’ Ion Field ECM I’s to disrupt his targeting and then assigned all my weapons – his Cat went down quickly and there was no miner losses. He logged quickly after this engagement, I don’t think he was expecting anything like that!

Had a few good exploration finds over the weekend…

Scanned down and jumped into a Class 2 Wormhole from the home system. I always get a little rush jumping into the unknown of W-Space, you just never know what you’re going to find and this one was untouched. When I’m hunting/exploring in W-Space I make it a point to at least identify all the Cosmic Signatures in the System I’m working and this C-2 had a ton! There had to have been at least twenty Signatures to scan down and I can’t remember what they all were but I did pinpoint ten hackable exploration sites, six Relic and four Data.

I had jumped in flying the Hunting Hound hoping I might find something to shoot but no joy – it was a small System and all I could see on the D-Scan were some Control Towers, there was not one ship in system. The first thing I do anytime I jump into a Wormhole is bookmark my exit and after scanning down all the Sigs and bookmarking all the hackable sites I warped back to it, jumped out, re-shipped into my Cheetah and headed back in.

I managed to hack all but two of the cans (two Data site cans) and ended up with a little over $175 million ISK in the hold and found a  3-run Dark Blood Large Beam Laser Battery BPC – not one of the epic BPC’s but it’s the first Faction BPC I’ve found and it got me pretty excited!

I also stumbled upon my first few Drone Data Sites and scored a number of ‘Augmented’ & ‘Integrated’ Drone BPC’s.
