Yeah, true. But for someone who's never set foot inside a wormhole, wouldn't a covert ops be kinda of essential, or would a regular cloak do fine?

If you are a novice to wormholes I would definitely advise against bringing in stuff this expensive, you will get jumped and you will lose your ship, it may not be sexy but use a t1 cruiser on c1/2 sites to get familiar with WH's first, remember there is no local and you wont know the combat recon ship is in the hole with you till he is landing on grid.

Yeah, probably a good idea :) Got any good ship recommendations?

Wouldn't something that could fit a cov ops be more suitable to me from a total wh noob point of view? Or would a prototype cloak be sufficient?

I think whatever t1 combat cruiser you have the skills for should be fine in even c2, might be a little slower than BC to clear due to lower dps but you can also dip out faster when bad guys show up.

Also if you get jumped and tackled shoot the trigger and let BOB sort it out.

for exploring I'd suggest the arbitrator since you can stick probe launcher and normal cloak in its highs without really sacrificing anything important. Normal cloak is fine especially once you learn the cloak/mwd trick.
