Back after almost a year break.

Started this game to be an explorer and now i want to branch out.
I still like exploring but i want to try other careers.

Are drakes still viable for mission running or should i train towards a better ship?

Drakes get the job done but are not amazing.

I recommend heavy assault cruisers for missions in non-FW lowsec, stealth bombers for the FW-specific missions in FW lowsec, and marauders for highsec missions.

I support the New Order and CODE. alliance. www.minerbumping.com

the first and most important thing to know about mission running is that it can easily lead to burn-out. if one day you find yourself forcing yourself to accept the next mission, you should immediately stop and find some other occupation for a few months at least.

with that out of the way, a drake will handle lvl3 highsec missions relatively well, but if you are looking to set up an income source, you should keep training to get into a raven navy issue (also called CNR). with good skills, this ship will easily get you through any hisec mission.

if you prefer to run missions outside of hisec, the advice of sabriz above me is valid and sound.

I should buy an Ishtar.

I find that constantly changing the ship I do missions in fixes this issue. 3 weeks ago I was grinding them out in a paladin. This week its a nightmare. I've got an amazing loki fit for C3 soloing so eventually I might try that.
