I’ve recently started the game, with a little help from a friend from work I’ve gotten along quite well so far. Anyhow as our paths in Eve currently diverge I am asking around for advice in various places. I have level 3 missions available to me for Sisters Of Eve. Currently I am flying a gifted to me Osprey Navy with an active tank and Heavy Missiles as my mission runner. As I was flying it I started removing more and more tank and adding more damage to speed up the process. All in all I love the ship and even the hardest of level 2 missions are trivial now. I digress.
I am not the richest of players being fairly new and have looked into a level 3 mission “appropriate” ship and have come to the conclusion that it’s not economically viable. In theory I could sell my current Osprey, and mostly fund a Drake or Ferox and a fit. I can’t see a purpose built level 3 ship ever making it’s money back though. I am only trained Caldari, and I am Omega for those wondering. I don’t even have a quarter the isk to buy a Gila and honestly i am not all that interested in the ship either. I am loathe to sell the Osprey as I would like to have it ready to go for further mission use for other corporations down the road. It being a gift I also feel I should keep it permanently or pass it along down the road to another new player when my circumstances are better.
I suppose after this ramble I am just looking for some guidance or some idea a new player like me doesn’t comprehend that is an easy answer as to where I go from here.
Hope this sheds some clarity on where I am at. My friend gave me some skill points to get me going which has helped tremendously. I tried to follow the Eve Uni magic 14 as best I can.
Thanks in advance for any advice and guidance!
