Drones. Very useful… takes forever to train. I’ve been working on drones for my missioner for almost 2 weeks now. Drones 1-5, Scouting Drones 1-5 and then the drone support skills to lvl 3 or 4. (pondering whether I even want logistic and/or heavy drones.)
I am now flying a Harbinger. With T2 drones now a reality, it has become quite nice. I am still lacking in firepower, but I am planning on training Medium Energy Turret 5 while working in
next week. London
My Harbinger can handle lvl3 missions consistently, and I haven’t needed to refer to the web for reference. My current set up is to send the harbinger with armor mods activated into the fray, and eventually send a salvaging Rokh in afterwards. (I know there’s better ships, but the Rokh looks kewl, and I didn’t need extra training for my Caldari pilot.)
My Rokh has armor repair drones, which I have needed on a couple missions, like Recon where I didn’t notice that I just had to warp in.. not kill everything, or on a couple other missions where killing was, um… optional. (I’m here to pew pew with this guy, after all.)
Now I’m beginning to approach a decision… should I A) go for a T3 cruiser, or B) go for a BS. I am tempted to cruiser since I could afford it, but the BS may be more practical . Regardless, I have swapped missioning people so I need to work back up to lvl3 missions before deciding. I found a nice combat mission agent to help me along for the pew pew. I should hopefully be done with drones before too long (need EWAR drones still), and then it’s back to pew pew skills. Cruiser V may be worth it for T2 ships and a T3, I need the lvl5 core skills anyway. Although the BS may just make more sense from a cost perspective. Hopefully, I can have time tonight to read up on Legion T3 PvE feasibility.
Next day- having looked.. Legions stink for PvE. So, while there may be a lot of utility for a Legion, my goal for this character is to have him only mission. Looks like BS route for me! My current plan (with tons of travel coming up) is to train Medium Lasers 5, grab the specialty skills and more gunnery, then dive right into BS training. During this time, I should hopefully have lvl4 skills open in Amarr space for the new corp I’m working on. (Searched for a corporation’s final lvl4 agent that is near my industry base, so my salvager doesn’t have far to travel.)
