Fitting Theory – Purify-i-core 10MN Afterburner Fit

Inspired by the 10MN Manticore video by Pirolat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLtHzH3uWis

A few days ago Mel sent the video above around to the corp. We were all pretty impressed with the ships this guy was taking down, and so the analysis of his fit began. We modified it a lot for a few reasons. First and foremost we are poor, so the faction afterburners and everything else Pirolat is using wasn’t reasonable for us. We are also primarily Amarr pilots and wanted to see if we could do something similar with the Purifier (thus the Purify-i-core designation). What we came up with is by no means perfect, but it seems like it can get the job done.

Before anyone starts to flame the post, this fitting can be greatly improved upon. I do not have the ideal skill set for this fit but am in the process of training towards it. Upgrades to rigs and modules will yield much more impressive results so feel free to tweak to your particular skills as you see fit.

I tested it a bit last night. The damage output is lower than I was hoping for, although most of that can be attributed to my less than ideal missile skill set. The Purifier also seemed to have a little bit of trouble keeping it’s velocity maxed out at an orbit that still allowed for the disruptor to be within range. It’s not impossible but it will take careful monitoring of your distance from the enemy ship for this to work. Pirolat I’m sure is using a 28km disruptor where I downgraded to a 24km version. Overheated I can reach to 28km and I’m not too worried about someone running away from me. This way I can save around 50 million isk.

One big perk of this fit is it’s cost. All told it is less than 50 million isk to buy and fit. That’s damn impressive considering the value of your targets. Your targets are the key though. Very similar to the Pilgrim fits, choosing what to engage and what to leave alone is a major consideration when hunting with this ship. Luckily for you a cloaking device allows you to do just this! All in all it’s a fun inexpensive ship that can really cause problems for some of the staple solo lo-sec big boys like Hurricanes, Cyclones and Drakes.
