This is a new Discord server for wormholers and all things wormholes. There are multiple text and voice channels that provide all the resources you need to connect with all of J-space, whether it be for recruiting, help with fittings, buying and selling wormholes, hammering out new alliances and coalitions, or lending out a helping hand with advice for wormbros.
I said I’d post them right?
Yes, this is me. In a Manticore. Killed by an Endurance. When I said embarrassing killmails, I meant embarrassing.
I got the chance to fire off some questions at Jamba Acami, who you may know as /u/SilverSteeples from this recent Reddit post. He posted a picture of a 75 million ISK estimated value haul from a wormhole expedition, and he did it in a Venture. Let’s find out how:
A Brief Introduction
I recently received a great period of instruction from DART’s CEO about rolling holes, and I’d like to pass along that info.
The first step in this process is gathering some information about the hole. As an example, I’ll use our C3 static.
There are quite a few fitting simulation tools, but Pyfa is by far my favorite. It’s simple, easy to use, but gives you the information you need to accurately fit your ships. [Download here]
Let’s fit out a basic Frigate and get into some of the nuts and bolts of this tool. We’ll go with a Merlin because, well, I love Merlins. (Use this fit at your own risk by the way, I snagged it off another website and have never used it). Once you have Pyfa downloaded and open, copy all the italicized text below (this is called EFT format).
The Humble Beginnings
I had been training to effectively use a Rattlesnake while I was in nullsec, so I decided to go with that as my first ratting ship. Here’s the fit:
Had To Happen Sometime
So it happened, my first death in the wormhole.
I was attempting to roll our C3 static (I’ll go in depth on rolling in other post). I brought out the Armageddon built for this purpose and dove in for the first of two round trips and found a Bhaalgorn waiting on the other side. I stayed cloaked for a few minutes to weigh my options, then decided my best course of action was to strike first while attempting to slow boat to the hole.
