Yep yep... Combat ship!

Depends on if you want to fire big cars out of your guns (1400mm gun Minmatar... late in the game though), missles (Caldari), use drones (Gallente), or Lasers (Amarr energy weapons... don't pick them).

Check this link and scroll down to the bottom with the bullets... or if you like looking at charts, bring up the military one.

There is a particularly interesting bullets about each

Quote:
Minmatar Soldiers can go straight to the store and be in Destroyers with Tech 2 Artillery the same day.
Minmatar Special Forces get both a MWD and Shield Hardeners.
Gallente Special Forces get five drones right out of the gate.
This.... this may be the most important to you though, as a combat profession.

Quote:
All soldiers have Gunnery 5 and Small (Racial) Turret, while all Special Forces can get cruisers and all sorts of special goodies. (Amarr and Minmatar can get both cruisers and medium turrets.)
Be sure to look at the supporting skills of each... like engineering, shield skills, etc.


The only thing about Minmatar is that you will be spending a TON of time training skills for the ships. They can either be armor or shield tank, gunboats or missileboats. Very VERY flexible they are. Great tacklers in PvP due to the speed of the Minmatar ships. I might train them at a later time for that reason.

I'm not trying to persuade you to be Minmatar, just throwing out the facts there.

Yessir... I just got all of my basic learnings to 4 (besides empathy) and all of advanced to level 3 (except presence) and I cut about 2 or 3 days off Frigates lvl 5 ... now its down to only 11 days or so.

A frigate is so much fun to fly... Traveling around at about 800m/s-1000km/s is very fun, and gotta know what your doing so you don't get beat to death by guns bigger than your ship

just a clarification:
Gallente isn't all drones you know... The Dominix is droneboat, but the megathron is a pure beast with turrets (blasters or railguns)
Tyr13, if you can, get the social skills up, and get to lvl 2's, caus lvl 1's aren't actually worth the time :lol:

I was talking about more with starting specialties of the Special Forces... I know about the thron


I've social skill to level 3, and connections to 1, negotiation to 1. Right now i'm running level 2 missions. I could run up to quality level -3, but I'm staying in hisec. So I'm waiting for some decent qualities in hisec.
