trying to do low sec stuff maybe mining or gas huffing stuff with it and wanted to know if it would be a good buy for that
Cranes have no bonus to mining or gas harvesting. A Prospect would be a much better choice for those, and it has similar cargo space for ore/gas and a covert cloak as well. It’s also cheaper. Blockade Runners have their place, but mining isn’t it.
transport ships (blockade runners specifically, ty @Mephiztopheleze) are the most game changing ship in eve imo, with proper cloak use and piloting you will sail right through 49 out of 50 empire camps. be sure to make and use tactical bookmarks for safer travel
Having the skills to fly a blockade runner on at least one character is very handy in a variety of situations.
