Hallo o/,
I just returned to the game and was really surprised by all the changes. It feels like I am playing a new game. I went through all the available resources on the Internet but sadly most of them are obsolete so I am turning to you, the Forum Veterans for help. These are my skills : http://eveboard.com/pilot/Aya_Silverye

Can someone suggest a T3 Strategic Cruiser and Pirate Faction ship for me? With all the changes, I can't figure out which ships are good. I primarily want to do PvE. I don't have the time to join in PvP due to RL. Thank you in advance for all your help.

Warm Regards!

Marauders are back in fashion with bastion mode and micro jump drives.

My taste for T3 would be Tengu first and Proteus second.
I think either will lead you to good ships *up* the ladder.

Also: Eveboard shows that you are training shield comps atm.
They do not have the same benefit as they used to, so maybe re-think that and save some training time.

O.O Were shield comp's nerfed? I was just following the Mastery requirements given for the ships. Marauders seem cool but they're also too expensive for me right now - I hear they can go upto 1.2 bil with fittings. On the other hand, the Strategic cruisers cost about 600 mil with fittings or so I was told. Can anyone confirm that please?

Can you give me possible skiling paths? With all the changes I can't seem to get an idea of which skill to train for PVE, Incursions.

Shield comps used to give a benefit to active hardeners *when they weren't active*. So if you capped out, they still had some resist.
CCP..... *fixed* that. Roll


You're close enough at your estimates on prices


I have never done an incursion. There are incursion channels in game, that might be a good place to ask about specific ships and fits. I do know that incursion fleets don't like missile platforms, because of delayed damage application.
Fleet Tempest, Vindicator, and I think Legion fleets are popular if I recall.
Again though, I have no incursion experience.

Until you figure it out, train gunnery SUPPORT skills, or skills that will help anything you fly.
Drone skills
Nav skills
Capacitor skills
Thermodynamics
Targeting skills
etc.

I am going to build up my drone skils. Really useful now considering all the drone missile boats available now. Thank you!
