I recently wrote in the general forum about my search for meaningful content in Eve after having played and left and played and left EvE over a several year cycle. Unsurprisingly, meaningful content leaves me knocking on the door of PvP. I’ve read Feyd’s blog concerning the concept of mission flipping and what he calls the Ishkur of Fantastic and although the original blog entry is several years old, I’ve seen some semi-recent references to it in other blogs and forum posts. So my biggest question is simple, is this still a thing? I know mission flipping certainly is, but how about the ishkur? Also, Feyd claims that if you don’t have the skills for the ishkur then you can start out in an incursus and work your way up. This sounds great but I am hoping people can help me if updated fits are required and what kind of expectations I can have regarding legitimate targets… I mean, Feyd (and others) have some remarkable kills listed on their blogs, but they’re all the ishkur variety. What should I expect to be able to take down with an incursus in the context of mission flipping? I was able to scare off a thorax by orbiting at 500 and shooting his MTU but had the thorax engaged me instead of warping away, I would have only been able to apply about 96 dps on him. I can’t imagine that would have been enough. Don’t get me wrong, it was an awesome experience, but I’m looking for someone to help me set some expectations and guidelines as to what I can actually accomplish with an incursus as my skills progress. As I mentioned in the other thread, I’m more than willing to learn, but coming from a place of significant ignorance on the topic, I need some further guidance to get started in the right direction. Thanks!
TLDR: is the Ishkur of Fantastic still a thing for mission flipping? What can be expected from an Incursus in that same role?
