Exhumers in Kronos

Following from my mining barges post, I thought I’d put a few fits for the Tech 2 versions, and their stats. These fits aren’t the final word, so feel free to change them around (e.g.a small shield extender can be replaced by something more useful, like a survey scanner). However, they provide a good baseline to compare the various exhumers.

Skiff

Best for: being very difficult to kill. Battleship-class hit points plus a very high top speed mean extreme survivability. 

Skiff_2MLU
Skiff with a damage control is ridiculously tough. This fit is solidly over tanked.
Skiff_3MLU
Even with three mining laser upgrades, there’s more than enough spare hit points to sneak in a survey scanner.

ice

Skiff_2IHU
Again, quite over tanked.
Skiff_3IHU
A safe choice for ice harvesting, while still 22% faster than a Procurer.

Mackinaw

Best for: solo AFK mining. Huge ore bay means you can mine in peace without trips back to the station every ten minutes. 

Mack_1MLU
Pretty darn tough. This is a good afk fit.
Mack_2MLU
Still tough, mines a bit faster (29 minutes for a full load). Swap the kinetic hardener for a scanner if you need to.
Mack_3MLU
A lot less EHP, fills in 27 minutes instead. Useful for non-AFK mining.

ice

Mack_1IHU
Tough, 27.5 minutes full.
Mack_2IHU
Decent EHP, 25 minutes.
Mack_3IHU
Marginal EHP, 23 minutes.

Hulk

Best for: fleet mining. Tiny ore bay but high yield necessitates hauler support, but is the fastest-earning ship if you have that support.

Hulk_1MLU
22k ehp, 26.31 yield.
Hulk_2MLU
15k ehp, 28.68 yield. Nice. Risky, but nice.

ice

Hulk_1IHU
20.5k ehp but a sizeable 29.37 yield.
Hulk_2IHU2
15k ehp again, but 32.4 yield, wow.
 

In conclusion, the exhumers are a fair bit better than the normal barges, but just bear in mind that if you don’t tank them, you’re risking almost 200M isk on a ship that could die to two Catalysts…
