I am a new player and I’m running the enforcer path of career missions. In mission six I’m tasked to destroy wolf’s pirate base (I’m a Gallente pilot in Federal Navy Academy). However, the defense turrets of wolf’s base hit me too strong. I managed to complete the mission by warping back to FNA outpost in the solar system, escaping death, and a lot of patience by going through the portals multiple times. But I can quite imagine this is not the way how the mission should be completed, I must be doing something wrong.
I was flying in my rookie ship (my corvette) and geared only with a civilian railgun for which I need no ammo. What ship and what fitting should I have taken to survive the encounter for the first time? I also grasped a basic understanding of the combat system (damage types, avoiding turret fire etc.). How do I analyze though opponents to play in their weaknesses and anticipate their strengths?
Thanks in advance for the assistance, this would massively help me!
