Hello, everybody. I’m a pretty new player in New Eden and generally prefer PVE content in all the MMORPGs I’ve played.
After reading/researching a lot into it, I think I’ve set my long term goal for Eve Online to conquer the Abyss. There seems to be three cruisers that fit the bill and are capable of tackling the higher level abyssal filaments (though I plan to start on T1 and slowly… very slowly… work my way up). I want to ensure that I’m making the right training plan, and not wasting a single minute of training on something not geared to min/max the cruiser of choice.
In order to execute my battle plan I do have some questions for the more veteran Eve Online players. For the questions regarding the 3 cruisers, if answers can sort them (best to worst) that would be helpful. But if you just want to answer with whats best, that works as well (I would be happy just to get a response).
Which has the lowest learning curve of the 3 Cruisers (Gila, Ishtar, Vagabond)? I’ve seen videos and live-streams of these being played at T6 and they appear to be the most consistent.
Is there a .emp source that outlines the skill required to Min/Max certain ships (with their respective Abyssal fit)? This is something I’ve been searching for, but have not had any luck thus far. I’ve been focusing on the “Magic 14” right now, but eventually I’ll need to start training into the Cruiser line of choice. I’ve played around in EVEMon (a tool I found while searching for skill plans), but I’m taking shots in the dark at building a cohesive plan… and am afraid I’m completely wrong.
Which of the 3 Cruisers are the most forgiving (i.e. take a sucker punch only to stand back up and say “thank you sir, may I have another”)? Reason being, this will be something I probably share with my brother and dad (also new Eve players). My brother tried a Vexor, but it didn’t survive the aforementioned sucker punch.
Which of the 3 Cruisers is the easiest to progressively fit? We obviously do not have the capital right now to sink into a 2-4 billion isk fit; but want to slowly work our way into fitting more and more expensive modules as we slowly work our way up the abyssal tiers.
I know I’m asking a lot of questions, but I would really be grateful to any advice the community can provide. So far the people in the game have been really friendly and helpful, so I thought I would give the forum a try.
Thank you all!
