Sub-system skills to 5?

I'm training a tengu pilot just to sell. I have no intention of flying him.

I am also training additional skills to make him well equipped for living in a wormhole.

So I was wondering, considering that the toon is likely to be living in a hostile enviroment, should I train his sub-skills to 5 or leave them at 4?

Does your typical wormhole dwelling tengu pilot have them at 4 or 5?

Only a fool would leave them at lvl 4.

The difference between 4 and 5 is massive and it's not as if it takes much time to train up rank 1 skills anyways. I have all 20 sub system skills at 5 myself.

Offensive and Defensive should absolutely be at 5. Electronics as well if you're flying a web loki or something similar.

I had no real use for engineering (power core for my incursion legion) but took it to 5 anyway. I figure if I lose the ship, theres a 20% chance of the game taking that skill down, rather than something important.

Definitely train them to 5.

More bonus for the buck if you're going to be selling the toon.

offensive and defensive should be at level 5. the rest depends on the pilot and the fitting. for my proteus i got engineering 5, for loki id get electronics, for my 100mn tengu propulsion.
