# 1 Best way to kill pets?
03-01-2013, 04:44 AM
I find EWP to be the best.

Pros:
-Its got a large area
-It has a snare effect when not using it to kill pets
-It just requires exposure once to deal damage
-With enough PG, you can kill most anything except the Frigates (I think)

Cons:
-It can only be equipped on something with a Lt Com Eng.
-Pets have to fly into it


Other options.
TBR may just push, not kill. But its got a lot of other utility and can be equipped at a low level sci BOFF.

Grav well just doesnt get all of them, or kill them through shields. I dont have acetons, but I think they would work great if being shot at.

I guess scramble is an option too, but with such a long cooldown, and you dont actually kill the pets.

I mainly fly sci ships, but is FAW and CSV still viable even for the heavier pets?

What are you preferences and opinions?

Generally I think the options (in my exp) are:
GW, FAW, CSV, TS and EWP (around the carrier)

Of those I find GW and FAW to be the most effective but pets are underwhelming anyway unless you have 2 good carriers with them

Gravity Wells and and Warp Plasma combined are the best in my experience, with Tractor Beam Repulsors getting an honorable mention.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.

Tbr tac buffed is just lolz with pets...same with ewp tac buffed but that needs a cruiser for its cpt engi to get the max efficiency.

CSV, followed by FAW, EWP and low aux TBR, then GW. i almost never see GW deal that much damage, even to some heartier pets

When threatened by pets I use FAW and draw them into my mine field. I also keep a point defense turret handy.

Yup.
My second favorite thing to do in the game, follow carriers and wipe out their entire launching fighter group with 1 click of the mighty CSV button. I laugh at Kar'Fi's and their puny little skull fighters !!!
