Sorry this might get dense, but I have info overload which I don’t handle well in general. I followed the eve uni training plan to raise my core 14 to 4/5s, then support skills to fit 2s, now that is finishing up I’m ready to pick some t2 ships, but it is really frustrating that I don’t see a straight path to follow. It’s like I might have to do frigates in one race, destroyers in another, possible cruisers for 2.
So my favorite ship in the game is the tengu (which I think I am 9 mo - 1 yr away from, and the Caldari stops along the way don’t seem to great.
I have excellent drone skills so the Ishtar seems like the next best ship for me, but it feels wasted since I don’t want to fly the proteus and read it can’t run the sites I want to.
My favorite thing is explo so I am leaning towards doing Amarr / Gallente frigs and cruisers to push astero and stratios, then the legion, but don’t know what I would rat in for consistent income.
My corp doctrines are mostly Minmitar and Amarr. I like drones and missiles (just for flavor) but play style really do like brawlers. I’m interested in stealth bombers bc boom and already have cov ops frigate / cloak from explo.
I want to explore and run npc explore sites, rat when needed, and pvp over territory respond to people coming into corp space.
I like things neat so not seeing a good bridge of train this which leads to this, frazzles my brain. Would Amarr and Gallente let me cover this? Minmitar ships seem amazing, but I don’t see a good ratter. I’d be sad missing out on a tengu but don’t see a good bridge to fly in the mean time.
Thanks for any input. I have 1 week left till all my support skills are done.
