Prowler - best ship for distribution missions

I don't think it is true. Perfectly skilled viator with 2% or higher agility implant seems to be the best, at least when you limit yourself to t2 equipment. The reason is that it reaches 4s align time with the implant and t2 istab, while having enough cargo for even largest (7200 m3) distribution missions. With prowler, you often run into refitting situations (extra click on mission accept, refit, refit back later), or suffer from 1 seconds worse align time.

Verify tag for the Standings Grind

The tag asks/states:

> Is this still the case? Discussion on Discord says Security missions are best.

I don't know what was said on discord but the general outline of the section is indeed correct. Distribution missions are especially well suited to farm storyline missions. I would not have written the section in the same manner because if this route is the best for you personally depends. For a new player it's often faster to just 'only' go for corp standings and not pay much attention to faction standings for example. There are also many other approaches. PS: technically the fastest way to increase faction standings is to have others share standings from epic arcs. Thus technically the first sentence is not correct.

Feel free to move the Section Distribution missions#Standings Grind, about the best/fastest/awesome-est/fun-est way to get earn Standings, to NPC standings#Overall recommendations or Gaining faction standings fast or both. The purpose of Distribution missions is to explain what are these Missions and how to complete them, not to compare their gains with other Mission types or methods of earning Standings.

A proper improvement would take more time than I want to invest in that topic right now. There are many different strategies to standings. I only reacted to the tag that was set. But I'm not sure if User:Adrian_Tarmikos will actually read this. If others wants to rework it properly, they can go ahead. Erwin Madelung (talk) 06:28, 13 August 2022 (UTC)
