I’ve been theorycrafting some fits to use for my foray into Null-Sec ratting and they are coming together fairly well I think…

The thought process towards the fittings needs to be quite different from a fitting I would use for running combat sites in High-Sec as the threat of a PvP engagement is obviously much higher out in Null-Sec. I’ve come up with three different fits and each will do the job just fine, the decision of which ship to use will come down to the current intel situation of the systems I’m around and what kind of sites I’m wanting to run.

In Norse mythology, Huginn and Muninn are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world and bring information to the god Odin ~ In New Eden, Huginn and Muninn are T2 Cruiser Hulls of very different styling.

The Huginn is the Minmatar Combat Recon Ship so of the two and if it’s actually used in a reconnaissance role does tie in well with its Norse mythologically inspired name. It has the following ship bonuses:

Minmatar Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
• 5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret rate of fire
• 10% bonus to Target Painter effectiveness
Recon Ships bonuses (per skill level):
• 60% bonus to Stasis Webifier optimal range
• 5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret damage
Role Bonus:
• Cannot be detected by directional scanners

Conversely the Muninn is a Minmatar Heavy Assault Cruiser which really only keeps the naming as anything in common with the mythological Muninn. New Eden’s Muninn has the following ship bonuses:

Minmatar Cruiser bonuses (per skill level):
• 5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret rate of fire
• 5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret damage
Heavy Assault Cruisers bonuses (per skill level):
• 10% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret optimal range
• 7.5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret tracking speed
Role Bonus:
• 50% reduction in Microwarpdrive signature radius penalty

I’m right around a week away from getting into the pilot seat of both and am getting stoked on buying and fitting out some new ships. Still on the look out for some Muninn fits, there doesn’t seem to be many out there?

Vætki?

I’m currently training towards Minmatar Cruiser V and with that in mind I’ve been looking at all T2 Cruiser hulls seeing what looks interesting to fly. These are the six Minmatar T2 Cruiser hulls:

I’ll be able to get into five of those six right after training up Minmatar Cruiser V. The Scimitar will take awhile longer, I’m not sure my Signature Analysis and/or Long Range Targeting skills are quite up to snuff for it. To field the Rapier as I’d like to fly her, as a Black-Ops Scout, will also take some extra training but in the meantime I will be able to fit her out for small shield gang fleets which should be a ton of fun. The Vagabond, Broadsword and Huginn excite me and I’m looking forward to sitting in them.

Of the five I can get into quickly the only one that doesn’t excite me much is the Muninn – I’ve not seen much on the hull in any of the blogs or forums I’ve read and I can’t honestly remember seeing one in game at any point. Does anyone out there fly one? How do you fit it out? What do you use it for?
