    Why "purgatory"? Because that's where me and you will go once you even think about approaching the LRM heretic church.

    LRM 20 COOLDOWN: -5.00 %
    MISSILE COOLDOWN: -5.00 %
    LRM 20 HEAT GENERATION: -10.00 %
    MISSILE HEAT GENERATION: -10.00 %
    ENERGY RANGE: 10.00 %
    With grand total of -20% LRM20 heat, -10% LRM20 cooldown and +10% energy range, with the added benefit of extremely high mounted lasers, this one is going to be a good poky build with the added "benefit" of being completely heat stable while firing only the LRM20 behind cover.

    How to play this build is pretty simple: you poke with your lasers whenever you are cool and never stop firing both LRM20 on any target of opportunity.

    Skill wise, I would go for the classic missile + laser boat skill tree, with some survivability and maximum radar depravation due to the lack of ECM and to optimistically free LRM trade against other LRM boats.

    Also, this is not a stupid LRM boat: this build is meant to share your armor and focus fire components with your lasers. Please don't play it like a passive LRM only boat.

    ALTs: you can fine tune the build in many ways: swap an ERML for a TAG and/or swap AMS for additional ammo / armor / TC1. Your choice.

    I like the concept. While I do not own any Stalkers, I did something similar with an Archer, going with LLs + MLs as the main weapons, supported by the LRMs.

    With the Stalker, since you are not going to Run to the front, perhaps ERLLs can serve you better, especially in the peek&poke of the early game?

    I was going to argue about the fact that ERLL are less heat efficient and has slightly less DPS compared to LL, but I forgot the fact the additional heat is negligible as well as the additional cooldown. Even smurphy says I'm gonna lose no heat efficiency with the whole build, while if I remove the LRM20 and keep only the lasers, it will be 49% with 2xERLL+2xERML against 51% 2xLL+2xERML
