i havent mind it, but now im gettng a bit bored... Since im sitting in a station doing absolutly nothin, until a fleets builds up for pvp, but there are somedays that fleets dont get created so i dont do anything, basically looking for something to do on my free non pvp time

And fit a triage mod on it so you can Logi if things go south. It's win-win. You stop being bored and still fly a logi somehow.

Since you are Logi pilot, you likely have one or more Cruisers trained to 5, along with Shield / Armor skills.

Train to a Gila or an Ishtar (Requires good drone skills), both using Cruiser skills, and run Anomlies for profit.

null sec incursions?

  - remove the cloaked from local; free intel is the real problem, not  "afk" cloaking -

how's that? did you stop training your char after logi?
Because you are asking wrong question. It shouldnt be "what can a logi do otherwise?" but "what do I want to do besides flying logistics and which skills do I have to put into queue as next?"


You right what can a logi do otherwise, i still want to be logi, just trying to find out what else can i do as a "logi" in nullsec besides pvp



Well you can go to some of the belts and try repping the rats. Who knows maybe the rats will self destruct out of pity for you and drop an officer mod.

Branch off into every other T2 Cruiser, since you are already halfway there.

If you are trained for logistics, you must have Cruiser 5 in something.

You may also be close to piloting:

* T1 cruisers
* Navy cruisers
* Pirate cruisers
* SoE cruiser (Stratios)
* Recons
* Strategic Cruisers
* Heavy Assault Cruisers
* Heavy Interdictors

And since they are also medium hulls, with similar skills, you are not too far from:

* T1 Battlecruisers
* Navy Battlecruisers

A bit off the beaten path is:

* Command ships

I trained my medium-hull specialist into Heavy Interdictors after Logistics.

You want to stay in the Logi Branch?
Go and train up your droneskills and then into the carriers. With good drone skills you are already able to rat with cruisers (assuming you have the cruisers all to 5 as you say you are a focused logi pilot) and can later upgrade to carrier ratting, while you are still refining your logi skills when you are in for triage.

You want to stay in your dedicated logi ships and do not want to train anything else?
Do nullsec incursions. There is a Sig in the Imperium for incursions, so join any Imperium alliance and you'll have access.

For anything else there is little to none use of logistics in pve.

As a logi? Train into a triage carrier

I would suggest that the first step would be to ask your locals whether any of them could use a logi while they rat... Some folk don't but there may be people running anoms or plex in your area who group up to make things more fun and would be glad to drop tank modules for damage (DPS or application) if they know that you're handling the damage mitigation. Even if there aren't any grouping up already maybe there are newer players who are similarly sitting, waiting to be useful on their own, who might group up but aren't sufficiently confident to start things off...

If everyone in your area is ISK/hr obsessed and won't help one of the guys they really rely on in fleets earn some cash then consider moving. You're their logi after all...

In the longer term you can be training for the useful ships in your area; for exploration frigates if need be. The Gila suggestion is a good one (though it's dependent on your existing skills, it's less easy for a Guardian or Scimitar pilot than for an Osprey or Oneiros pilot) as drones (particularly mediums) are a relatively straightforward train and you've almost certainly got most of the basics down already.

I actually made a new account yesterday, ill train him to be a rater, and ill prob just run 2 clients, and go rating... also im tahinking about getting all 4 logi t2 to mastery 3 so basically i can fly anything and skill wise it will be good, then i may just pick the archon path and see where that takes me... while i keep rating for money.... Is rating in low sec with 2 accounts the best way to make isk? or is there something else i should look at?

No, no, no! You're doing it wrong.

You are meant to be closing accounts, because Eve is dying. It must be - a bunch of loudmouth drones told me so!

When a person is insane, as you clearly are, do you know that you're insane? Maybe you're just sitting around, reading 'Guns and Ammo', masturbating in your own faeces...do you just stop and go, 'Wow! It is amazing how f*cking crazy I really am!'?
