Fairly new player (5.5m sp). I’ve been running L3s as myrmidon, and have no problem finishing missions quickly.
The only problem is, while I enjoy turrets (so much stuff going on), drones are a bore… so much micromanagement needed, and even then I keep on losing them: Wait till I’m targeted, let the drones out, they seem to be doing fine, take my eyes off of drone HP for 5 seconds, and whoop I lost yet another one… And yeah I can buy new ones, but I feel like I failed the game every time I lose a drone :).
That’s fine though, lots of other ways to deal damage, so I started searching for other fits to target going forward. BUT, almost all L4 fits I see has drones in them, I think to deal with frigs in missions (don’t think there is high-level PVE that’s focused on small ships)… Am I cursed to use them? I just want to enjoy missions without the hassle of using drones
ISK isn’t really an issue - I’ve already made more than I can spend. So don’t care if it’s not the most super-duper ISK/hr efficient ship.
