What was your first t2 ship you ever trained in EVE?

,

For me my first t2 ship i got was a t2 hauler. The Crane and Bustard best train ever I use both ships to this day.

I went the “other” direction and would have to say it was a cruiser. Fun times wd’ing the null blocks.

It was a Paladin for me.

I think it was a Hound. I did not do much with it but it was a nice intro to covert cloaks.

Ishkur

Damm! That was a long haul. You must have maxed out some others to get there?

Same the crane got me into more cloaky ships. I eventually tried out the tengu but it wasn’t for me. I like a ship that’s awesome at 1-2 things rather a ship that’s “meh” at everything.

Cerberus. I started the game when the Drake era started to emerge . I already had the t2 heavy missiles and t2 shield tank , then Apocrypha hit the server and I trained caldari cruiser 5 to get the Tengu . Along with that , I unlocked Cerberus also … Eagle too , but did not had the weapon system for it trained.

First T2 ships I ever unlocked were Caldari T2 cruisers, but the first T2 ship I ever flew I think was Hecate (its T3 but whatever)

Must have been the Hawk in my case according to zKill.

Vengeance, which I lovingly called Black Sunshine.

I had such good times with it back before crimewatch changes and can flipping with aggression to only the corp or individual still existed.

The buzzard and the manticore.

The manticore really kickstarted my career as an explorer hunter (the astero didn’t yet exist back then.)

An Impel - the Amarrian Deep Space Transport (gold brick with a large hold).

I was doing my manufacturing in Eram (T2 modules and stuff) while sourcing and selling in Hek (three jumps). I grew to the point where I was needing a larger capacity hauler and something that was a better bet for more expensive cargo.

When I moved down to Amarr I liquidated what I could, put a Frog order in for some and loaded my Impel for the trip. Amarr is home now, but I remember Eram with fondness.

Impels are probably the most common T2 ship I still regularly fly - I’m a manufacturer at heart. That and a travel fitted interceptor for moving things like datacores and BPCs around for invention runs.

Pilgrim / Curse

It was back in the days when Nosferatus on any ship could still leach cap from targets regardless of your own capacitor and the target´s capacitor levels. Also sensor dampeners were very effective on a curse back then.

Anchor Bubble → Wait for target → lock targets → orbit outside of locking range (because of dampeners) + leach all the capacitor → “Yarrrr”

A sleipnir.

I remember grinding up isk in my hurricane fleet issue, looking at a command ship, and thinking “someday.” Of course, I rapidly figured out that battleships and level 4 missions have much better isk/hr, but after I got my battleship skills in order I swung back around and got a command ship I don’t need.

Buzzard.

It was Gallente but I can’t recall if it was assault frigate or covert ops

Damnation then Redeemer.

Anathema (amarr covops), which opened up the game more for me, then the Purifier (and still love both)

mine would be covert ops (helios). i used the money from exploration to buy more sp and train for other ships
