Devoter contest winners

My Lone Wolf Devoter contest ist closed, and I am happy to announce the winners! You will get your prizes via contracts. Thanks a lot to all for participating!

A note on ratings: I reviewed each fitting thoroughly, and rated each in the following areas:

– Global rating, 10 points (how well thought out it is)
– PvP rating, 10 points (how well it would behave in PvP)
– PvE rating, 10 points (how well it behaves in PvE)
– My liking, 10 points (how much it appeals to me)

The final rating is a rating on 10 points based on the total of these areas. Seeing that each fit is either PvP or PvE, a 10/10 score is not possible, that’s why some of the ratings here may seem low.

Roosterton’s “Kickass buffer solo Devoter
Category: PvP
Scored 7,00 points

2nd Place:
Hacra’s “Gankalicious
Category: PvP
Scored 6,50 points

3rd Place:
Jackie Fisher’s “Devoter LOL Solo
Category: PvP
Scored 5,50 points

4th Place:
Superted’s “Solo PvE
Category: PvE
Scored 5,25 points

5th Place:
Ashram Starkiller’s “Devoter for Aeon II
Category: PvE
Scored 5,00 points

The biggest penalties I gave were for the use of capacitor boosters. As a lone wolf, you are often venturing out far from anything. I know it is common in PvP fittings, but boosters should not be required for the normal operation of the ship’s modules. You have a ship that does not need to carry ammo, and you add a worse kind of ammo 🙂

Some statistics:

Biggest buffer: 93.488 HP, Roosterton’s “Kickass buffer solo”
Fastest MWD ship: 1798 m/s, Rasael Wolf’s “Solo”
Fastest AB ship: 465 m/s, Xe na’s “Solo Piracy”
Most agile: 2,1 secs, Roosterton’s “Kickass buffer solo”
Highest damage: 307 DPS / 793 Volley, Roosterton’s “Kickass buffer solo”
Highest defence: 702 HP, Xe na’s “Solo piracy”
Highest resists: 87,8% omni, Roosterton’s “Kickass buffer solo”

Naturally I was excluded from the contest, but I thought I would share my personal fitting anyway for those interested. It is a PvE fit optimized for exploration and wormholes. Previously I used a Zealot for this, but the Devoter has a slot layout that allows you to do more. Especially tankwise, it is perfect for making a good omni defence:

Devoter fit for wormholes and exploration:

[Devoter, Wormholes and Exploration]
Imperial Navy Medium Armor Repairer
Imperial Navy Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane
Imperial Navy Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane
Capacitor Power Relay II
Armor Thermic Hardener II
Armor EM Hardener II
Imperial Navy Heat Sink

Stasis Webifier II
Republic Fleet 10MN MicroWarpdrive
Analyzer II

Heavy Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Heavy Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Heavy Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Heavy Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Core Probe Launcher I, Core Scanner Probe I
Salvager II

Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I
Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I

Full specs:

Defence: 88.8% omni resists, 333 HP/sec
Damage: 252 DPS / 715 Volley
Speed: 254 base / 1384 m/s with MWD
Cap stable with MWD and Analyzer off
2 Minutes cap with MWD on and Analyzer off

This is ideal for running highsec complexes and class 1/2 wormholes, although in wormholes I would replace the heat sink with a third energized nano membrane to be on the safe side. You can scan, salvage, hack/analyze, tackle, tank and kill in one neat package.

I will venture out and say you cannot find better for this task short of upgrading to a command ship (provided you only use lasers, when able to fit missiles this may be different).

Zealot fit for wormholes and exploration:

[Zealot, Wormholes and Complexes]
Imperial Navy Medium Armor Repairer
Imperial Navy Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane
Imperial Navy Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane
Armor EM Hardener II
Armor Thermic Hardener II
Imperial Navy Heat Sink
Damage Control II

Cap Recharger II
10MN Afterburner II
Fleeting Propulsion Inhibitor I

Focused Medium Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Focused Medium Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Focused Medium Pulse Laser II, Imperial Navy Multifrequency M
Core Probe Launcher I, Core Scanner Probe I
Salvager II

Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I
Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I

Full specs:

Defence: 86.4% omni resists, 294 HP/sec
Damage: 217 DPS / 447 Volley
Speed: 261 base / 622 m/s with AB
Cap stable with AB off
7 Minutes cap with AB on

As you can see, even if the Devoter is not overly superior to the Zealot in pure tank and gank numbers, it allows you to fit one additional midslot module and a microwarpdrive instead of an afterburner. The additional turret is nice of course, but the Zealot’s bonuses make up for that.

Now I have to decide whether to fit the ship for PvP with Roosterton’s fit, or for Wormholes 🙂
