That's a beautiful screenshot, GreenViper, awesome vista! No wonder I never see you around, if you went off to Colonia
I think I'll start the Guardian grind action soon myself... I have been putting it off, but I have to get my information on the requirements straight first. But those FSD Boosters sure seem like a sweet addition to my Exploraconda and my ASP, which I turned into a tourist taxi.
I'm also thinking about starting outfitting a combat ship for anti Thargoid ops... but the grind, oh the grind!
You can start from scratch and get the needed stuff for a booster in about two-three hours.
Including travel time back and forth between the bubble and guardian space.
Might depend a little on how comfortable you are with SRV combat from the turret.
So bring two or more.
Another option is to bring something with a fighter bay.
Land close and when the guardian sentries spawn head back to ship and launch out in an slf.
The fixed beam variant would be my recommendation since you need to aim manual anyway.
Thank you, TorTorden, that is very good advice!
I was about to add the information about the point defenses on the ship, but GreenViper beat me to it
I'm actually experienced in dealing with human ground installations, I've done a lot of planet reconnaissance and sabotage missions.
I love those because I have an excuse to use my small ships for that, I think they come in very handy for quickly swooping in and quickly
escaping again, after setting off every alarm and sentinel there is. Atm I prefer my I.Courier for this, beautiful little rascal, that one.
The info on being able to take them on with an SLF was new to me though, I might just try that, I usually have my co-pilot handle these so that would also be a nice excuse to use them myself again.
I have a follow up question: do the Guardian sentinels re-spawn after a while?
Because it would be quite impractical to kill them with the SLF, land back on the ship, land the ship, deploy SRV, go to the structure only to have them respawn a minute after....
But I'm just curious, I'm confident I could get it done with the SRV as well, but it would be nice to try something else just for kicks.
Thanks, Commanders o7
