I had to buy the chromed paint kit. I missed out on it last time but I must say it looks really nice and changes depending on location.
The Keelback is a better SLF carrier than the Crusader which forces you to pick 2 out of 3 options - SLF hangar, shield or cargo capacity. Stick with the Keelback until you can afford the Krait Mk2 which can also carry an SLF. Farseer offers many upgrades so she's a good engineer to go to.Hello Keelback Club, Im a new player in E, and here is my short story how I got here:
Grinded up with a 20t Hauler from start I bought a T6. With my fresh T6 I did a quick run on this years Xmas event (Cemiess food deliver). In around 30 mins I did tons of short jumps form system to system, refuelled two times, across half a dozen in anarchy state area, and NPC pirate attacks evaded, I travel 174 Ly to MacKenzie relay (mission obj.). Then my luck ended.
Interdicted by an well-known infamous griefer (who collects youtube footage of killing newbies) got me and executed my stationary ship in around 3 secs. I lost everything: money, ship, valuable cargo, grindtime, hope in the bright future. My fault that I have no money for insurance, so I restart with the Sidewinder.
That was the point I said for this game okthxbyeuninstall.
After I tell my unfortunate story on this forum, I met some very friendly players, who helped not to turn away forever. One of them advised to pause the game for 2 weeks and restart it with cool head. He lent me 10 void opals for restart, what I sold at Kooni Resort, Malina System. For cool head there is still a weak left, but after my first job will the repay of the loan. Its around 10M Cr, so I must do missions: Minor Faction Ranking, Courier, Carry, Supply, BlackBox and Low-Level NPC Assassination.
Because I know the T6, I choose her armoured sister the KB. After reading back sme pages here, this is my planned setup:
1, Im not sure of PointDefs usefullness, its on the top-back of the ship. I choose turreted lasers, beause of no heat, no ammo, and with slow turning they can shoot some angles what out of reach with manual targeting (Im KBAM, not easy). Also with a fresh but expensive experienced NPC pilot with Plasma repeater Condor, to finish my job after I lowered enemy shield - Condor will pursue and destroy. Maybe Class 1 missiles at lower hardpoints?
2, Shield Gen: Im totally uncertain, I need the 32t cargo hold, but switch on Class 5 or Bi-W? Collector limpet is for BlackBox, but change to more hull and use cargo scoop? Docking system is for my noobility, maybe later I will sell it. Thrusters do the optimal mass, but change for A grade with some downsizing at other parts?
3, Next step after? To strenghten my ship: Search for Felicity/Serene? Or forget it and collect more Crs to change next hangar-able ship (Crusader)? (This build costs 10M and insurance is 500K). Or I should go for 4 weeks to PackHunter.
Thanks for reading this. Im a PC player, but I will longtravel to Origami in the first week of January (Sorry for bad Anglish, GGL is my friend...)
I'll be signing up soon
Do it!!I'm on an expedition (but not DW2) and I wish I took my Keelie instead of the orca I'm in . The orca is better in every way except I don't like it. Ho hum.
Why did I think I needed to try something different? I'm now thinking is it too late to fly back to base to swap ships? Very very tempted.
