Guides

Selecting a focus
Forming a fleet

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 fits used by the EVE University Incursion Community focus around our need to be able to clear warp disrupt capable ships first, which are often small and hard to hit frigates. This sets us apart from most communities, in that we often favor short-range and high tracking with multiple webs and painters, as opposed to the more common long-range setups with dedicated webbers that other communities use.

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 uses 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 and 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 in-game Fitting tool. 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 favorite 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 (basic and advanced)

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. Any can be used, but the MinmatarScimitar is favored in Vanguards due to its remote tracking bonus and its ability to operate independent of other logi. The CaldariBasilisk is needed in Assault and Headquarter sites for its ability to field utility cap to counter the heavy neuting and capacitor needs of those sites, but is suboptimal for a wardeccable Vanguard group like the Uni's due to its need of cap chains, and is not listed here due to said cap chain adding an additional point of failure for fleet safety. For pilots unable to use the Scimitar but can use T2 Caldari cruisers, the CaldariTengu serves as a cap-stable Basilisk alternative.

Remember that you need to train Icon skillbook2.png Target Management V and Icon skillbook2.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. For the Basilisk this means cap stable with incoming capacitor transmitter.

  • 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.
  • If the fleet lacks a dropper alt, and has a second logistics cruiser, one logistics cruiser can drop a Remote Tracking Computer for a 10MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner.
  • You can upgrade to four tech two reppers by switching a Capacitor Power Relay II with a Power Diagnostic System II and training the following skills:
    Icon skillbook2.png Power Grid Management V (4 days, 6 hours)
    Icon skillbook2.png Capacitor Systems Operation V (4 days, 6 hours)
    Icon skillbook2.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.

  • You could use capacitor implants to help you get cap stable. Using implants in this manner is ok, as long as you don't compromise the fit in some other way.
  • In a two-logi setup, 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).


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.
The Incursion Community runs a T1 Battleship Loaner Program, enabling Uni pilots to try Incursions without having to invest in a T1 hull.

Hyperion

While ideal for Headquarters sites for its speed and EHP heft, in Vanguards the Hyperion suffers from the short range of T1 blasters. The blaster Praxis offer a superior platform at a similar price, with low EHP being the only downside.

Praxis

Unlike other ships with fits listed here, the Praxis is not used by Headquarters communities due to its low speed and base HP. As a consequence, the fits below are rigged for use in Vanguards only.

The Society of Conscious ThoughtPraxis has some upsides over the other T1 battleships listed, namely having seven mid and low slots, an ample drone bay with room for both lights and sentries, and a drone damage bonus. This also means that it can support energy turrets while also having spare mid slots for application. However, it has less resists versus kinetic/explosive damage, and low buffer.

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 SerpentisVindicator stands out with its best-in-class application support bonuses, seeing usage in nearly all Incursion groups. The Angel CartelMachariel, Sansha's NationNightmare are also excellent hulls, with good bonuses and slot layout, but have fallen behind their more powerful Marauder counterparts. The fits below 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.
As of October 2022, both the Angel CartelMachariel and Sansha's NationNightmare are either not accepted by headquarters groups, or considered intermediate ships with an upgrade deadline to move to an optimal hull after a number of fleet hours. Further, unlike the Vindicator or Nightmare, the Mach is only accepted by shield groups, and typically require T2 autocannons at minimum. Please take this into consideration if you are looking into either hull.

RECOMMENDED SKILLS
  • All the required skills for damage dealers
  • The Icon skillbook2.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
  • 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 they prefer.
  • 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.
  • If using tech two pulse lasers or tachyons, it is recommended to replace a heat sink or the tracking enhancer with a Capacitor Power Relay II, or else a cap chain will be needed to maintain cap stability.
  • Should a lack of SerpentisVindicators in fleet be noted, swap a sensor booster or tracking computer for a web.

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.

Remember that you'll need the Icon implant hardwiring.png Republic Fleet Command Mindlink to go with these fits, to push the boosts to acceptable levels.

Logibooster

Running a fleet with a logibooster and one logistics cruiser reduces the repair power available versus two logistics cruisers. This puts additional pressure on the fleet to clear damage off the field. Further, it becomes potentially unsafe for the sole logistics pilot to do ore drops. The logibooster or a dropper ship should be used instead.

The logibooster compresses the booster and logistics role into one ship. Using this means fewer high skill point roles are required for a fleet to run, and enables an extra Battleship to enter the fleet and get payouts. This, of course, comes at a cost: Logibooster configurations can only repair approximately two thirds of what an advanced Scimitar fit can, and generally has less cap stability. Further, without a range bonus, its repairers can not reach far. And getting the sufficient capacitor generation for its repairers requires a tight fit with lower resists.

Both the MinmatarSleipnir and MinmatarClaymore can be used in this configuration. The Claymore gets a resist bonus, an extra mid slot, and some extra CPU, while the Sleipnir gets slightly stronger boosts. The Sleipnir however generally requires a bling hardener in order to safely run this configuration, so the Claymore is the more accessible option.

DPS booster

The traditional ongrid booster setup, used alongside two logistics cruisers. Due to the convenience of the logibooster, this configuration has fallen out of favor, but it is still serviceable. While both the MinmatarSleipnir and MinmatarClaymore can be used in this setup, 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.

Dropper/Hacker/Scout

The dropper is one of the vital roles in the vanguard fleet, as it is essential to completing the Nation Mining Colony, where a stack of Lyavite (255 units) has to be dropped into Nation Ore Refinery in order to complete the site after killing all the rats.

Hacking, on the other hand, is optionally used for one of the vanguard sites, the Override Transfer Array. Once a coveted role, it has fallen out of favor due to increased damage output of the fleet and increased difficulty of the hack reducing the overall benefit of hacking. A cheap ship on an alt is preferred, but more advanced hulls can complete the hack with more ease at a much higher cost. 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.

Until September 2019, Incursions did not use the minigame, but instead used the old method where each module has a chance of successfully hacking the logistics control array. This meant that while in exploration you only used one data analyzer, in incursion hacking you used as many as you can fit. After the changes, hacking in the Override Transfer Array is identical to any other exploration site, but with no consequences for failing a hack.

Venture

The venture is used as an all-rounder ship that can fulfill roles such as dropping, hacking, and scouting, from the same ship. Its large ore hold of 5000m3 makes it perfect for tagging along with the fleet and dropping Lyavite in the Nation Mining Colony to complete the site. While the Venture can hack in the Override Transfer Array, the lack of any bonuses generally means the pilot will need high skills in order to hack fast enough for it to be worthwhile.

  • The Venture can hold 16 stacks of Lyavite containing 255 units in each stack.
  • The Small Remote Shield Extender is so that the scout can contribute repairs and sponge a payout if there are less than ten ongrid ships.
  • Adding a Prototype Cloaking Device enables the Venture to safely enter the Nation Mining Colony before the final wave. It is not necessary to perform dropper duties, and requires Omega clone status in order to use.

Heron

The Heron used to be the hacking ship of choice due to having one more mid slot than the other T1 exploration frigates, meaning that it could fit one more data analyzer. Since only one is useful now, the Heron is no more effective than the other T1 exploration frigates. The only mid slot modules needed are a Microwarpdrive and one Data Analyzer module. The Memetic Algorithm Bank gives the pilot more room to navigate the hacking minigame.

  • Any of the AmarrMagnate, GallenteImicus, or MinmatarProbe can also use this fitting with the same level of effectiveness.
  • Being able to fit a Data Analyzer II module will greatly improve hacking effectiveness, as it pushes the Heron's virus strength to 35, letting it break through defensive subsystems more easily.
  • 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.
  • The Small Remote Shield Extender drones are so that the scout can contribute repairs and sponge a payout if there are less than ten ongrid ships.
  • Additional buffer modules, such as Small Azeotropic Restrained Shield Extenders, can make it easier for the logi pilots to hold up this ship, in case it takes aggro in an OTA.

Ammo Hauler

The Amarr T1 Exploration frigate, the Magnate, is useful for transporting your ammo, modules, rigs, and scripts. The four low slots can be filled with expanded cargoholds to maximize carrying capacity and, since the Magnate is a frigate, it can be transported in the frigate escape bay of a battleship. Unfortunately, the ship cannot be put in the frigate escape bay unless it only contains charges (such as ammo and scripts). This means you can't use this method for transporting Lyavite or spare drones.

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.

Bling fits

However, some ships are simply not useful without significant amounts of bling applied to them, but given said bling can exceed the hulls listed above in key respects. These are not recommended for first-time runners, as the fits have several drawbacks compared to regular fits that requires both an experienced pilot and fleet commander to understand. Under that same mindset, unlike the minimum fits, these fits are not hard and set. So long as the ships listed here have similar enough fit, tank, and capabilities, they may be accepted at FC's discretion. Once faction and deadspace modules are included in fits, there are many combinations of modules that will get similar results, and this page will not attempt to categorize them all.

Marauders

The new damage buff to the Bastion Module enables Marauders to easily exceed the damage that even a polarized pirate ship can dish out. However, since the Bastion Module disables remote assistance while active, Bastion Marauders require a local tank to safely use.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • If you are new to Incursions, we recommend against starting in a Marauder, as it imposes higher pilot skill requirements compared to other ships. Consider a SerpentisVindicator or Sansha's NationNightmare instead, or take advantage of our T1 Battleship loaner program. These fits are made with the expectation that the pilot is experienced in running Incursion sites.
  • Set Auto-Repeat off on the Bastion Module and Shield Booster. The X-Large reppers are very cap hungry, and can easily cap out the ship if left unattended. Also, disabling auto-repeat on Bastion allows the logi to rep a Marauder in case of a disconnect.
  • None of these fits include Stasis Webifiers, as it is assumed that there will be other ships with webs to do the job better. An all Marauder comp will not do in a Uni fleet, and it is expected that the FC will keep tabs on the web capability of their fleet.

  • Conflagration < 40km, Multifrequency if you need tracking, Scorch otherwise.
  • Turn auto-repeat on your Shield Booster and Bastion Module off, the former so as to conserve cap, the latter such that logi are able to save you in case of disconnect.
  • The EM rig may be changed at pilot's discretion.
    Lacking the tracking bonus of the Nightmare, pilots may want to take Standard Drop Booster (or any other grade, really) to compensate for the poor tracking of this ship's guns.
