My Raven was equipped with the following:

So CCP have handed out the latest batch of Christmas Gifts – these ones mostly poke fun at various EVE jokes and legends. There is one particular item that caught my eye.

2012.12.23.12.58.001

For those unaware, there was a forum post from about 4 years ago that attained some popularity due to the Original Poster needing help with a Raven fit then proceeding to spam the thread with this;

My Raven was equipped with the following:

HIGH
06 x Cruise Missile Launcher I
01 x SMALL TRACTOR BEAM 1
01 x SALVAGER I

MEDIUM
04 x LARGE SHIELD EXTENDERS
01 x ‘HYPHNOS’ ECM
01 x MEDIUM SHIELD BOOSTER

LOW
01 x EMERGENCY DAMAGE CONTROL
01 x ARMOR KINETIC HARDENER I
01 x ARMOR THREMIC HARDENER I
02 x WARP CORE STABILIZER I

DRONES
02 x WARRIOR I DRONES
03 x HAMMERHEAD I DRONES

UPGRADES
01 x ROCKET FUEL CACHE PARTINTION I
01 x BAY LOADING ACCELERATOR I

So, as one of the Christmas gifts, CCP released the Ship Fitting Guide. That is where I should have stopped. But I could not.

I could not stop staring at this majestic ship. This beautiful celestial engine of destruction. This fit that, truly, could defeat all others. Why am I in Jita? Why is my wallet emptier? What do you mean, “I put the Guide in my hold”?

And there it was. My Raven was sat in Jita. Perhaps here, I should have stopped. I did not.

For you see, I went into Lowsec. To be precise, I went to Old Man Star – one of the major PvP hubs of lowsec. I entered Lowsec in Lonetrek to start, where nothing at all proceeded to fight me in an hour. I did, however, bring Retribution upon a Cyno Kestrel. Bored with Lonetrek, I made my way to Old Man Star.

Local was busy but contained a lack of Stuff to Shoot. I had no intention of going Suspect on a station or gate, and noone was willing to fight be despite my cries in local.

In despair at Not Being Killed on the station or gates, I warped to the first Asteroid Belt in Old Man Star, continuing to cry in local. I waited 15 minutes.

This was obviously the time the pirate gang needed to form to kill my super Raven. An Arazu warped in at 90km. He pointed me twice. I warped away. I warped back. A Vagabond awaits. He points me. I warp away. You have to work for the kill, gents.

This time I warp to Planet 3 – the only celestial in that direction. They’ll catch me, but I’m really bored at this point. A Drake lands first, so I begin the 45 second lock sequence to deliver pain and destruction.

The Drake locks me down. The Arazu appears. So does a Rapier. Then a Stabber Fleet Issue and a Manticore.

But I was fighting. NOTHING SHALL DEFEAT ME.

Then a whole lot of other shit came in too.

And that was the end of my Raven.

  1. That’s awesome, well flown sir!

  2. It comes to something when the pirates are slow to take on a Raven, no matter what fit it has!

    Of course, some of these pirates have been burnt by nasty Procurers’
