  • Hi guys. I'm just wondering if you can give me some pointers on how to destroy the sleeping Domkavash Ships in Altair Hypergate. :sos:I can't stand their combined barrage when I tried to annoy them.:verrueckt: Is destroying them the only way to acquire the Don'Kavash Annihilator?:hutab:

  • You can also hunt Dom'Kavash Gunboats in Altair and loot two DKAs off Deva Station in Lost Paradise.


    I never tried to fight those sleepers, but I think you'll need to avoid getting in interlocking fields of fire. Maybe getting closer (so less turrets can fire at you) might help, IDK.

  • I am friendly now with the Doms. If I hunt Dom gunboats, my reputation with them will be affected. I heard that if you destroy Dom motherships in altair hypergate, not only you will get some Dom guns but your reputation will not be affected. I just need some tips on how to destroy them. My torpedoes and missiles isn't very effective because there is something wrong with their tracker, it won't hit. I can't hide on their blind spot because because their guns are everywhere.:vinsent:

  • Did you try to jink, strafe, etc? I think it's by default that you shouldn't stay still.

  • They have shields? I didn't really check them out back when I was there.

    Well, in that case, rinse, repeat until their hull points reach zero. As I said, I didn't fight those motherships, but I managed to solo a few Dom'Razak motherships and Warrior, Savage and Sentinel battleships in a VHF, and I'm pretty much the worst pilot in the colonies.

    Or consider getting other guns. I'll take a liberty to point out Coalition Gattlings; sure, they cost about 1,3M each but they are worth it.


    I'll also add that for all my MP career as an arms dealer I can't remember a single DKAs deal. That was mostly about W'ar-Sy Propulsors or Ther'hon Cannons. Sometimes Kelyrd-Ray Projectors. Or yes, reselling Coalition Gattlings.

  • Hi DonKavash74,

    to destroy those motherships safely, you will need guns with a long range (from 1000 m up). Approach one of two big rear "branches" of the mothership from behind, and shoot the branch (not the ship's main part). At certain spots behind/around it you can do damage while only 1-2 defense turrets can hit you. Thus you will only have to take short retreats from time to time to recharge your shield.
