Forgive me if this is clearly covered, but I didn’t find anything here or on reddit for some reason.
When I last stopped playing, I had recently acquired a dread. Along with a lot of ships, I was thinking about returning soon and wanted to get my dread about 10 jumps across the galaxy to where I might move next. I was looking up getting a cyno alt going on my second account, but I now see they changed it so only recons and blops can create those.
As an aside, I see how that could be a good change for the general state of eve, but at the individual level, this really sucks…
So cyno alt is kind of months away now, and I won’t bother. But I do have a second pvper, which I could get into a recon soon, but that is an expensive ship to risk at each of the low sec stations I would need to stop at along the way.
Is there a way to do this relatively safely?
If I brick tank a recon on my alt and then open a cyno, I could jump my dread to it and dock up. But the recon is sitting there for 5 minutes. What if he gets attacked? Could I undock in my dread (or possibly some other logi ship that I was carrying in my dread) and rep it until the timer is over. Hopefully that would be sufficient?
I barely ever do logi, so if I did do that, would my logi or dread be able to dock as soon as the 5 minutes is up, or would I have to wait a minute? Even if I couldn’t immediately redock, I can’t imagine there would be much that could kill a dread in 1 minute outside of getting absolutely cap dropped.
I wouldn’t want to start playing again without getting all my pvp ships to where I would move next, so all the sudden, I’m a bit less excited to start playing again. I understand I could ask for some cyno escort from the new group I would join, but asking them to help me move across the galaxy for the FNG is quite a bit to ask…
