So after my Community Goal adventure (which resulted in my balance jumping from 60M Cr to 90M Cr - very nice) I decided to pursue an adventure of unlocking all the engineers.
First one on the list…Liz Ryder. All right, what do I need to do.
Oh, have Cordial status with the Eurybia Blue Mafia, how hard can that be…right?
So I arrived at the Eurybia system, got acquainted with the spokesperson for the mafia en looked at their mission board. Only one type available, “cut the power”. Hmmm, haven’t done one of those missions before, can’t be hard with my Asp Explorer with engineered multicannons. Let’s try it out.
Well, a lot harder than I thought. And how the hell can an Orca - AN ORCA - pack so much more firepower than my ship???
I even did my research before going in, and found that sniping the power generator with your ship was the best way to go about.
But apparently my lasers and multicannons don’t do enough damage. I haven’t tried equipping missiles yet, but I didn’t want to bother looking for a station either so I decided to take on a different mission. Oh, “steal cargo” missions, sounds like fun.
Well, I learned something new today.
- There’s no way you can cargo scoop everything and make it out in time before the feds arrive
- Killing the bastards goes hand in hand with destroying the valuable cargo they have.
So I guess this means I need to really, really do more research on Piracy-for-dummies.
So I looked online for perhaps a better build to do piracy in and apparently, the Cobra MKIII seems to be a good starter ship for it. Much more agile than Asp Explorer, that’s for sure (makes it easier to snipe the cargo hatch).
I managed yesterday to interdict an Adder and a Type-7 and steal their cargo (in Eurybia - it’s in Anarchy ) to then sell it on the black market (and this way increase my reputation with the Eurybia Blue Mafia).
Here’s a picture of my new pirate ship dubbed “Rebel Scum” (I really like the halloween decals and halloween bobblehead - even though halloween is already over)
Also, my ship has Collecter Limpets and Hatch Breaker Limpets, but for some reason I can never use them. They either say “out of ammo” OR show 000/000 even though I just left a station and restocked there. Anyone any idea?
