As for a Cruiser or Escort, they can outdps it at any tier easily so long as someone is SSLing .Full power to weapons, point blank, cannon spam, etc. Dead space rock.
Solo, however, would prove difficult as they can't shard scramble lock. Still, it's possible with their extra weapon/power options and abilities to out DPS the regen - they also need to remain vigilant around the shards..
Too many people are trying exactly this and causing one failure after another. I always see a number of ships parked and firing directly at the Entity, cannons and torpedoes blazing, only to have a half dozen Large Crystalline Fragments slam into them, exploding into three times as many Small Crystalline Fragments, and then successfully return to the Entity and restore nearly 20% of it's health.
Tier 2 is where you first get the Entity mission, actually. It's a level 17 mission.
