Drone Types by Desirability

  • Best: 'Augmented' - High ISK and Skills - Requires Relevant Drone Skill to Level V
  • T2 - Low ISK, High Skills - Requires Relevant Drone Skill to Level V
  • Faction, Medium ISK, Low Skills - e.g. Federation Navy/Republic Fleet - Requires Relevant Drone Skill to Level I

Please do not use T1 or 'Integrated' drones ever, they are inferior in all ways. Don't be fooled by the faction icon for 'Integrated' drones.

Which Drones to Deploy and When

TPPH Room 1 & 2

Please deploy light and medium drones, and also Geckos. Do not deploy Ogres unless instructed to do so by an FC, they are very slow moving and do not apply very well when you have to keep deploying and recalling them.

TPPH Room 3

Please deploy your full drone loadout

NRF

Please deploy your full drone loadout

TCRC

Absolutely no drones should be deployed until both Outunis have been killed.

Please burn to your optimal range on the tower (for your guns), and then deploy your normal drone loadout except for light drones.

Please do not deploy light drones except if it is a contest. As of Summer 2016, Sansha agro mechanics with regards to drones have changed and they are routinely blapping light drones in one shot. This then reduces your DPS on subsequent sites since you are missing drones. Thus you should not deploy light drones in normal situations.

Assigning Drones

Drones should be set to Passive and Focus Fire.

  • Please assign light drones to the DDD.
  • Please assign medium and heavy drones to the HHH/SSS.
  • If you are a battleship with a mix of heavy/medium and light drones, you may either assign them correctly to the drone bunnies based on their size, or you may send them all to the HHH/SSS, it is up to you.
  • On tower bashes (TCRC and end of TPPH), please assign drones directly to the tower, not to a drone bunny.
