My skills can barely handle level 3 missions -- why I'm posting here on the forums -- skilling just enough combat skills before a month of Production Efficiency V; Refinery Efficiency V; Metallurgy V to have *something* to do (want perfect refines).

When I scanned a high-sec site -- http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Gurista_Vigil -- it turned out to be one that cost me a Caracal. So if high-sec exploration rat sites are that tough, low-sec isn't going to be any easier...and I can't spare the skill training time for PvP skills to level up for a BS (which is what destroyed the cruiser). Only after I get my indy/research skills up will I train for it.

PvPers have indy alts, PvErs have indy mains.

The bold-underlined part is the high order bit for me. I'm intrigued as to what it refers to. User interface? Ship navigation? Both? Or does this relate to 'scanning navigation' (what ever that would be) ?

i hope the gnosis isn't one of those ships that will be given out, and never undocked because it's irreplaceable.

I'm kinda disappointed I got no credit for this... I couldn't find anyone who noticed it before me... Cry

Have you considered the possibility that your actual skills and knowledge also need improving? A hi-sec plex should definitely be doable in a correctly fitted & flown caracal.

Get Production Efficiency V, but don't bother for perfect refine - it's not the holy grail of mining some make it out to be, especially if you're only a few months old. Frankly, going for it now will have you burn out on EVE before you start having any fun, and there's no point training long skills ~for perfection~ when there's a short skill that'll be useful. A cruiser or battlecruiser are usually well enough for most lowsec combat sites, and non-combat sites are doable in a destroyer or a cruiser before heading back to station for a salvager or codebreaker.

(mining is for poors and when you're watching tv, it's tedious and e: comparatively unprofitable and 2% more of jack is still jack)

e: then again i mine on an alt occasionally because i'm a poor/lazy :(

You just asked someone who (despite having very little experience with EVE online) feels confident enough posts in GD whether or not he's considered that HE might be the problem?

OMG dude, give me my endorsement back, you know better!

j/k of course. People like this "Ace" never cease to Amaze (and dismay) me.

"My skills can barely handle level 3 missions" (218k Gunnery ensures it [had 52k at that time]) -- it had nothing to do with fitting. Ran the fit through EFT.

Caracals are too paper thin for me anyway. Switched to the Moa, which feels much better (used to tanking in MMOs and loading up on targets not kiting). If I can squeeze a couple more days in on training can get into a Drake with some decent skills (standards), but that's where training has to stop until after summer. Have some long level 5s in Industry and Science to complete first.

Thing is, you've been investigated (by yourself, with your own nonsensical postings). But hey, if it makes you feel better to focus on me instead of your own shortcomings, well feel free.
