Ship Focus : Enyo Assault Frigate

Last night I was roaming for a bit in an Enyo and I thought I would talk about it here to try and break up some writer's block I'm fighting with.

The Enyo is, for all intents and purposes, the epitome of a blaster ship. Four turret hard points and plenty of small hybrid bonuses and a smaller MWD bloom:

Gallente Frigate Skill Bonus:  
10% bonus to Small Hybrid Turret Damage per level
Assault Ships Skill Bonus: 

10% bonus to Small Hybrid Turret Optimal Range per level
7.5% bonus to Small Hybrid Turret Tracking Speed per level
Role bonus:
50% reduction in MicroWarpdrive signature radius penalty

There are several approaches to fitting up an Enyo but really my favourite is the run & gun approach, with as much firepower to overwhelm a target before the minimal defenses give out.

This ship with no implants or boosters has around 350 DPS and that can be increased if you remember to launch the light drone. Speed approaches 2300 m/s and with low grade snakes, you can push it over 2600 m/s. Get in fast, web and scram, fire until either he drops or you do.

Obviously not ideal for facing too many opponents at once, or faster targets that can keep you out of your optimal range of under 2 klicks, but its really an orbit and forget type setup that is hard to use wrong.


  1. What fitting tool do you use?

  2. I think a good fit should maintain some balance between tank and dps.
    Pure gank-fits are mainly to kill weak targets who wouldnt have a chance anyway a bit faster, but vs a serious opponent they must fail.

  3. You're over on CPU :-( Maybe you meant to fit the Meta MWD instead. Also, due to stacking penalties, try 1 Burst Aerator and 1 Collision Accelerator for a bit more DPS.

  4. That's pyfa.

    Also, this fit will do ~okay~ against bads it can sig-tank, but for frig 1v1's, you're gonna want rails and an AB.
