I am currently using an alpha account and my chosen race is the amarr.
my question is: which amarr ships from the frigate, destroyer, cruiser and battle cruiser sections is good for tanking plus sustaining while doing some decent damage and what are some suitable fittings for such ships.
Neut Prophecy can be pretty forgiving. Can do a several hundred thousand HP hull tank while neuting and doing ok drone damage. Pretty cheap and flexible for learning in. Make sure you lose loads of frigates n stuff first tho, don’t jump right into BC hull PvP.
OP, if you are going to stick with Amar ships and go for neuts, there is one thing you have to keep in mind. Not all targets are affected by neuts even if you sucessfully land them. Many ships and ceirtain fits just don’t care for cap use and their tank and DPS will be completely unaffected by neuts, or not to a degree that it will make it an easy kill.
In general, your best targets will be ships that use hybrid turrets and lasers + active tank, stay away from missle, arty boats and passive / buffer tanks.
Oh, got one killmark on mine
Dunno, but for roaming Laserboats do quite well: I managed to return most of them back to Highsec, while my expensive and agile Enyo got blasted by 40 ravens without having shot a single salvo and despite its brand new Assault Damage Controle module. At least it was quite a view, that ball of death, whilst sitting in a bubble…
Don’t get it…
“blasted” was meant generally, not necessarily deployed by blasters.
But yeah, it was only 29 Ravens with missiles, no blasters. And 19 supporting vessels: https://zkillboard.com/kill/68642769/
Quite impressive view before mayhem followed.
This was a common way to die 2008? Blast from the past
