... on where to go next. I'm currently hanging in the air a bit, many options open.
What do you guys think should I focus on in the coming 6-12 months and why?

Guess it depends on what you plan to do in eve.. PvE, PvP, LS, Null? you should at least get your subsystem skills to 5

PvE mostly, hence the focus on missiles. 5/5 across the board for subsystems is an idea, since they're x1 and give alot. Nevertheless I'm kinda running out of options, since I don't want to go into gunnery and armor tanking with Carlos. Caps are slow and expensive, I'm not seeing myself in any 0.0 or C5+ anytime soon, so that's limited as well.

These days I spend most of my time in Incursions, any suggestions?

I had a similar dilemma, but I was not adverse to training for gunnery, so I trained for a Nightmare. has been well worth it, gets you instantly into an Incursion fleet. I am not a big fan of the caldari bs

My options are basically

- Marauder: meh, I'm not a big fan of fat and slow BS, if I can bring myself to run missions that Tengu is faster, more agile and more fun.
- Maxing out scanning skills: The faster the more convenient, that's actually something I might kill some time training for since it helps with exploration and hunting in WHs.
- Leadership skills: The hole package takes quiet a few months of dedicated training and the Caldari Command Ships are not the most sought after. I'd rather like to sit in the Amarr or Minmatar version, as their boosts are more interesting for fleets. On the other hand I don't see myself boosting large fleets in the short - mid term future anyway so...
- Capitals: No thanks, I've done my fair share of low-sec mercenary work and null-sec sov grind to definately say that I'm currently not interested in it. The only possibility might be dreads for C6s but I'm not sure if I want to be in a high-end WH corp anytime soon.
- Missiles: Those last points to max out the support skills are pretty long-time runners, so they'll pay out only in the very long run.
- Salvaging: I have an alt for that.
- Industry: I have an alt for that.
- Guns: I have an alt for that.
- Amarr/Minmatar/Gallente: I have an alt for that.

Learn to fly a Rifter, join RvB and never look back at PVE again.

Go for a maxed out Tengu then if it is for PVE, and sort out the support skills while you are at it.
