This may seem like a silly question

I have been thinking of trying out burner missions and the advice i seem to see is to try it on the test server. why and what is the difference?

thank you

It’s cheaper, for starters. That way you won’t lose a lot of expensive ships trying it out…


Or you could just follow the guide threads that are posted here in the forums. The players who created those guides spent a lot of time researching and testing various fits and tactics just to help the Eve Online community.

Use this guide. Or alternatively this one if you are well skilled.

Personally, with the exception of drone skills, I have max applicable skills in all sub-cap fits. That said, I still wish I had tried them all out on the test server first. Max skills != experience in beating the burners. And beating them is not easy until you have practice.

That is why you have been told to practice on the test server… Personally, I wish someone had told me to do so too (although I probably wouldn’t have listened).


even so trying them on the test server can be valuable experience. I’m trying to go back and run all the missions with a lower SP character, and that’s caused me a few problems that I don’t have with my almost all lv5 pilots.

The main thing I noticed was rocket range, I fired 4 clips of rockets at the burner daredevil and was wondering what the heck was going on as it was still alive, and I was barely breaking the tank. Turns out it flies right around max range, so most of my rockets weren’t even hitting. And by changing the direction I was flying I started hitting with more rockets and killed it with the next clip.

if I went right to my max skill rage rocket fit I don’t know if I’d have been able to hit at all, and pretty shortly thereafter my ship would have been a wreck as that one isn’t stable.

I suggest this thread for fits and updates. My post with all my fits is right near the top, just scroll down a few posts and it should be there (they are also linked in the first post). the links in the above post aren’t completely up to date.
