Incursionlogosmall.png The information presented here represents how we do things in the EVE University Incursion Community. It does not represent the best or only way to run Incursions. We make some compromises when it comes to efficiency for the sake of additional safety to create an environment where anyone can step up and learn a new role.

Vanguard fittings

The Vanguard fits used by the Incursion Community focus around engaging the frigate and cruiser enemies in Vanguard sites. As a general recap of the theory, Vanguard sites have fairly low damage output compared to other incursion sites, but require high tracking to make large weapons useful. As such, you often have the luxury of reducing your buffer somewhat (again, compared to HQs and other sites) in favour of more utility modules which can increase damage output.

It is recommended that you visit this page after reading Preparing for Incursions and Incursion fitting principles. These articles will guide you to a fuller understanding of how the modules in the fits below work, and together, meet the task of engaging small ships effectively. These articles also detail the theory and reasoning behind the fittings below, and additional information such as what skills are needed, what implants are recommended and the like, is also placed there.

Finally, the four guidelines below are vital to the success of the fleet. Please bear them in mind when fitting your first ship.

Shields focus

Shield focus In the EVE University Incursion Community we run shield fleets, primarily due to the fact that it's slightly faster to train the shield skills but also because we want our pilots to be able to fly with the majority of the public communities as well. See shield vs armour doctrines for more information.

Bring Lyavite

Lyavite All the fits have had their ammo adjusted to make sure they have room for a stack of Lyavite (255 units, 306 m3 worth of cargo space), so before you undock to join the fleet, make sure you have a stack with you (see acquisition for information on how to get some). One stack is used per site, so everyone must carry a stack. The lyavite is jettisoned during the site and given to the logistics runner, who use it to finish the Nation Mining Colony site (only this vanguard site needs it).

Don't compromise these fits

Icon large red x.png We've already tried to downscale and reduce the skill requirements as much as we can for these fits, but at the end of the day the content you're about to join in on is high-end PvE content. Your individual performance is very important as we have a limited amount of people in the fleet, so every skill matters, every module matters.

Improving fits

Icon large green check.png These fits are tailored in order to get a solidly tanked ship – with a good level of performance – for you to begin running incursions. However, there is room for individual taste and preference. See the ship progression page as well as the upgrade priorities section of the fitting principles page for more guidance on progression in terms of ship upgrades and fits as well as skills.

All fits use Miranda's template which is easily used with the help of Pehuen's parser. If you click the EFT button you will open up a text box with the complete list of modules, charges and drones for the fit. This can then be copied to import directly into your favourite third-party fitting program. Be sure to read the SKILLS and NOTES section as well, they contain valuable information about the fit and if there are any common tweaks you could do.

Minimum fits

These fits are minimum fits, able to contribute to fleet efficiency. The logistics are cap stable under minimum skills (but please check to be sure), while the battleships bring decent damage and projection, utility modules, and drones.

Some of the rigging choices may seem weird for these fits, but they are all chosen to allow for extreme flexibility in refitting between Vanguards, Assaults as well as Headquarter sites. As such, some fits you see here may seem slightly compromised, but that is a choice we made to allow people to use the same ship for all the different sites. If you have a substantially similar incursions rig that is already attached to your ship, please do not feel obliged to switch those incursion rigs out in order to run with us.

Logistics

The entry-level for logistics is pretty high, simply because they are the backbone of the fleet. Due to the limited number of capsuleers in the fleet each logistics pilot needs to be of a much higher caliber in order to keep the number of logistic ships to a minimum, allowing for as many damage dealers as possible.

Remember that you need to train Skill.png Target Management V and Skill.png Advanced Target Management III in order to be able to lock all 10 members of the fleet. You should also make sure that your fit is cap stable, so you can run all modules all the time.

  • You could use capacitor implants to help you get cap stable, or powergrid implants to get more powergrid without having all the required skills. Using implants in this manner is ok, as long as you don't compromise the fit in some other way.
  • Only one of the logistics need the Afterburner, so the other logi can replace it with a Remote Tracking Computer II (or the more expensive Serpentis-faction variant).
  • You can upgrade to four tech two reppers with the following skills:
    Skill.png Power Grid Management V (4 days, 6 hours)
    Skill.png Capacitor Systems Operation V (4 days, 6 hours)
    Skill.png Shield Emission Systems V (8 days, 12 hours)
  • After you've gotten all tech two reppers, train into the advanced fit below as soon as possible.

  • The rigging skill isn't strictly needed but is still useful in reducing the penalties.
  • Shield Maintenance Bot II drones are nice but not critical, so feel free to use this fit with tech one shield bots while you're training.
  • Always carry a spare remote capacitor transmitter with you in case the next replacement needs two transmitters to remain cap stable. With perfect skills and implants, you can also upgrade the fifth repper to a tech two.
  • You could use capacitor implants to help you get cap stable, or powergrid implants to get more powergrid without having all the required skills. Using implants in this manner is ok, as long as you don't compromise the fit in some other way.
  • Only one of the logistics need the Afterburner, so the other logi can replace it with an additional Shadow Serpentis Remote Tracking Computer.

Battleships

Battleships bring enough utility midslots for sensor boosters, webs and potentially tracking computers and sometimes even utility highslots and their large weaponry offer the necessary damage projection.

Many battleships are missing in this section, which is intentional. Not all battleships have the necessary base shield hitpoints or midslots to be suitable for incursions and some ships are so situational that they are not ideal for our kitchen-sink fleets. There are also some ships that potentially could work, but the skills required to fly them would allow you to fly a much more suitable ship with better bonuses, or the ISK needed to make them work could be better used to get a far superior hull.

Pirate faction battleships

The EVE University Incursion Community doesn't require unistas to use fancy hulls due to the constant threat of war. Pilots who take the necessary precautions are of course allowed to, but should do so of their own free will being aware of the risk.

So long as pirate faction battleship prices remain reasonably low, they are the single most efficient way to make our fleets both safer and more effective. The role bonuses and higher base values alone make these ships far superior to tech one ships, so regardless of your skill level they are an immediate upgrade. See upgrade priority for more information.

If you are not comfortable with the cost of these ships, you can also improve your efficiency (and thus making our fleets even safer) by continuing to use our minimum tech one ships above but train into tech two guns and improve your support skills. See the recommended skills for more information.

Out of all the pirate faction battleships the Angel CartelMachariel, Sansha's NationNightmare and SerpentisVindicator stand out with their suitable slot layout and multiple offensive damage bonuses as well as good role bonuses especially suitable to both damage projection and application. The fits recommend a cheap and flexible offensive setup that differs a little bit from that of the tech one battleships, but otherwise follow our usual fitting principles. For more specific information about your rig options and general ship fit progression, see the rigging choice, fit progression and utility mids sections.

NOTES
RECOMMENDED SKILLS
  • All the required skills for damage dealers
  • The Skill.png Caldari Battleship skill can favourably be left at Level 1, as it only gives you an afterburner bonus (which we do not use in incursions).
NOTES
  • The EM Ward Amplifier II is primarily used to allow you to refit for assaults more easily. You can continue to use the regular EM Ward Field II for vanguards, if you wish.
  • Tachyon Beam Lasers (long range) can often work for vanguards, thanks to the Nightmare's strong tracking bonuses. So feel free to carry a set of tachyons with you and ask the fleet commander which he prefers.
  • Since laser weapons can change crystals relatively fast, it's highly recommended to carry at least two different sets of crystals, preferably three for various ranges.
  • Once you can use tech two lasers, upgrade to either Mega Pulse Laser II and use your Imperial Navy Multifrequency L along with Conflagration L and Scorch L, or Tachyon Beam Laser II with Imperial Navy Multifrequency L, Gleam L and whichever crystal gets you decent range at 60-70km, usually Imperial Navy Gamma L or Imperial Navy Xray L.

RECOMMENDED SKILLS
  • All the required skills for damage dealers
    (including the secondary battleship skill)
  • The Skill.png Minmatar Battleship is by far the most important skill to improve, as it improves the effectiveness of your webs.
NOTES
  • The EM Ward Amplifier II is primarily used to allow you to refit for assaults more easily. You can continue to use the regular EM Ward Field II for vanguards, if you wish.
  • Both Federation Navy and Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L ammo work for incursions, as the only difference is the name. Pick whichever is cheapest.
  • Once you can use tech two hybrids, upgrade to Neutron Blaster Cannon II guns and carry Null L for long range but keep faction ammo for short range.


Ongrid booster

Having a command ship with command bursts will always be more valuable than any other option for vanguards. The EVE University Incursion Community runs with a single booster to ensure that their fleets can run safely. See the Anatomy of Incursions page for more information on the effects of ongrid boosting.

Sleipnir

While both the MinmatarSleipnir and MinmatarClaymore can be used for ongrid boosting in vanguards, the Sleipnir is simply the better choice. The turret-based weaponry of the Sleipnir is far more suitable to incursions than the Claymore's missile-based weaponry.

Hacker

Hacking is required for one of the vanguard sites, the Override Transfer Array. A cheap ship on an alt is preferred, as there is little to gain by using more advanced hulls. This ship naturally fills the role of a scout as well, but that doesn't require you to fly anything special or fit any particular modules. See Hacker/Scout for more information on how to perform this role.

Hacking in incursions doesn't use the minigame, but instead uses the old method where each module has a chance of successfully hacking the logistics control array. This is why in exploration you only need one data analyzer, but in incursion hacking you need as many as you can fit.

Heron

It doesn't necessarily need to be a CaldariHeron, but it is one of the most useful ships and the basics for fitting a hacker remains the same regardless of hull. Microwarpdrive and as many Data Analyzer modules as you can fit and some Memetic Algorithm Bank rigs for increased hacking chance.

  • The skill Skill.png Hacking is by far the biggest contributor to efficiency when hacking, consider training it to III as it's a very quick train that gives a big performance boost.
  • Being able to fit Data Analyzer II modules is nice, but usually overkill as the skill-level needed to fit those modules would make your regular tech one modules more than good enough. Plus, four tech one modules with Skill.png Hacking III is usually enough to get the hack on the first or second try.
  • Right-clicking your microwarpdrive and selecting the option "Set auto-repeat off" is a good way to make sure you only run one cycle of the microwarpdrive, thus avoiding any embarrassing issues like forgetting to keep it on and capping out before you can hack the tower.

Venture

For Alpha clones you can easily utilize the OREVenture as an option either of them can fly, as they all start with Skill.png Mining Frigate I and Skill.png Hacking I for free. So this ship could by flown by anyone, regardless of race and skillpoints (at the cost of taking twice as long to hack due to limited midslots).

It's also possible to use the racial frigates, such as the AmarrCrucifier, GallenteMaulus or the MinmatarVigil. You would just adjust the fit by filling any extra midslots with more data analyzers and any extra lows with nanofibers.

Advanced fits

There are many ways to improve past the minimum fits, but for many reasons there will be no advanced fits with expensive faction or deadspace modules on this page, apart from those we need, like faction webs.

  • The more advanced fits are often tailored to specific communities or fleet compositions in order to maximize efficiency by capitalizing on their individual strengths while working around their weaknesses. This means that fits that are perfect for one community might not work or even be acceptable by another community's standards.
  • We want to encourage people to talk to us about how to improve, so you get the much needed context surrounding certain fits; how and why they work. Without that it's very easy to miss what makes or breaks certain fits and you could end up being forced to rip out expensive rigs or replace expensive modules to "fix" your fit.
  • We do not want to indirectly encourage people to spend a lot of ISK on costly modules or expensive ships until they have a good understanding of how to fit for incursions and how to capitalize on the strengths of various ships.

See the ship progression in Incursions and fitting principles articles (especially the upgrade priority section) for more information about high-end ships and the kind of questions you need to ask yourself before you start spending your ISK on new ships and modules.
