HI all.

After spending my first couple of weeks in EvE, missioning for an agent in 0.5, i've spotted a very nice quality L1 agent in 0.2.

After reading a ton of EvE stuff from all over the place, i have all this theory floating on my head, but not rly much pratcice. One thing always pop up during my readings: "While in noob state, dont go low sec or you will be killed many many times". Well.. i just dont buy that.

I only know one thing for sure: having the increased chance of getting my behind blown up, just by moving to low sec, is not a good enough reason for continuing missioning in the dull high sec systems.

So, i'm packing my stuff and get my imba (!) 400k SP char onto my Catalyst, and make a move to 0.2. (Just the tought of it is enough excitment!).

Now, i can't stand mining or hauling or courier runs stuff.

My plan is to do combat missions and the occasional ratting. I don't say no to PvP, but for now i aint gonna move away from my planned PvE path just for get into fights. IF while in my travels i come across a good fun opportunity, that's another story.

My biggest doubt resides in the fit/ship use for my goals, and so i present what i'm thinking to do and why, and hope for your better judgement:

Goal 1 : Missioning

I'm planning to use the catalyst when on missions. Go in, keel fast and salvage on the fly seems as good as it gets. The chance of getting in to PvP troubles while missioning are slim (at least as i undertsand it) so the fitting should follow the standard rules for that (like the active tanking (PvE) Buffer (PvP) kinda things).


Goal 2: Ratting

I won't deny it. Ratting is reason enough to find some PvP trouble...! I reckon that while im all happy hunting pirates, someone could come and grab me for dinner. The chance of getting to the rat spot and find someone already there is present too.
So i'm thinking that for this goal, i should try and fit in a more balanced style. Maybe throw some web and some plate? (seems right for PvP fights anyway)
And while ratting in a catalyst seems the fastest way to go, how would a destroyer rly fair against the pvp encounters?
Is it sound to just switch to a tristan?


And as for clarification, the idea of loosing ships doesnt scare me at all. It's just EvE! :)

Thx in advance for any comments and tips on how to make this move.

You should be alright in low sec providing you keep your wits about you.

Constantly check local.
Always be ready to warp out.

I presume that you will be in a frigate if you are running lvl 1 missions. A frigate will at least reduce your chances of getting caught in a gate camp.

A ratting fit is not going to be optimised for PvP, and the extra rewards you will make running L1s in lowsec is not going to compensate for the ships and the equipment that you will eventually lose to someone.

You might not believe that lowsec is dangerous, but the people saying that have been playing this game for longer than you and have more experience than you - they are saying that for a reason.

That being said, it's your ISK and your game, do what you want.

If I were you, I'd move on to running L2s in empire and forget about L1 lowsec missions.

You should not many problems as long as you are flying a frigate or destroyer. If you go up from there it will get harder and when you fly a Battlecruiser or Battleship it will be a constant thrill (well, also depending on the pvp/roam activity at the place you mission).

But live isn't much better in highsec depending on your corp.... Highsec is atm more dangerous to me than lowsec or 0.0 (and thatís not because of my standings ;)).

If you really want to go low sec, my best advice to you will be to join a corp that roams around there. It will be a bit"" more safer, you'll get (if its not an a-hole corp) good advice on how to fit your ship, what to look out for and what to train to get out a fight alive.

On the other hand if you look at the risk vs. reward, you are probably better of in Empire.

One other tip:

Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Just take with you only the absolute minimum. If your adventure fails, you've got assets back up in Empire and it won't be all lost if you run into a gatecamp or other players.
Maybe even better is to scout the area first in something cheap. Who flies there? How many? When are they most active? Can you get without problems to the lowsec station? How fast are you being probed down if you do a mission for that agent?

Good luck. :)

I apreciate your comments

On the contrary. I do believe low sec is more dangerous. That is the main reason of wanting to go there. What i dont believe is that the increased chance of beeing popped it's reason enought to keep me in high sec.

I know i'll get murdered, i know i'll be replacing ships all the time.

I also know that i will learn much more in the process, than rather spent 4 months in high sec.

Also, i have very limited log time available. By the time the 2 kids are in bed, it's waaayy to late to spend too much time logged Shocked.

So i need to make sure that every time i log it will be worth it and fun. That is low sec to me. :)... even if all i do in that log session... is getting killed.

I know that a fit optimized to ratting isnt the best to PvP. Maybe i expressed myself wrong.

What i mean is: whenever i'm ratting and i have un unexpected guest, just because i'm not PvP fitted, i should warp out immediatly? Will i not stand a chance? It all depennds on the guests and how many of them of course. But generally speaking, wouldn't be at least a bit sound to have a balanced fit, so i can still fulfill the ratting role but at the same time having a little more chance fighting the unexpected player? (providing it's a fight i could take on).


Thx for all the other comments. :)

Have you considered 0.0? How much do you care about Missioning compared to Ratting, Wormholes, PVP and Defending Mining Ops? I was in your spot and someone recommended a very good corp to me that I am still a part of, so I will do the same.

http://www.skkmc.com

part of LFA alliance.

To make this as short as possible:

We live in a 0.0 spot, with an awesome location, "The Pocket". Basically its a dead end in 0.0 with one entrance. Because of this as long as the entrance is clear, you are safe behind it in other systems. We have global Intel, VERY quick defensive fleet form-ups when enemies do appear, and plenty of time to react. I have lived here for over a month now, and have not once even been close to being ganked, but at the same time the option to PvP is an almost daily occurance if I choose too.

Also there is a very active and fun market in our pocket called Meetpoint, which has plenty of Buyers and Sellers to keep a newer player like yourself happy.

Its something to consider. We do mining ops yes, but I don't even Mine. I do security in them, I go ratting, and I lead Wormhole expeditions. Its a lot of fun and I don't think you realize the full potential of 0.0 compared to Low Sec. Its just a much better experience in my opinion.

As to your question, my ultimate goal is to participate in all those activities you have described rather than just missioning.

Missioning just seems a good starting point to get there, specially to someone as new to EvE as myself.

And thx for the input on the corp. I will check it out. :)

Glad to hear it. I understand it can be overwhelming trying to leave Empire and all the things in it, I've been there, but its worth it imo. Just accept that its going to be a bit of a game change and you will enjoy yourself just fine. To give you some basics about our corp:

We have 210 apx. members, and are in the top 100 biggest corps in EVE.

Out alliance has thousands of members, and many intel channels you will want to join if you become a member, and keeping track of whats being said in them will secure you either saftey, or opportunity, depending on your goals of PvP Smile

We have 3 Mining Ops a week at specified times. These are completely optional, and if I do go its just as Security, which usually means I rat in the same system as the Op and warp in and blow the rats up where the Miners are when they spawn. Doing so I also get a small chunk of change at the end of the night.

We have 4 divisions: Security, Mining, Industry, and Exploration. Whichever one you join opens up corp resources. I'm kind of in between and do a buncha different stuff, and have access to Most Corp Blueprints as well as security stuff. Its pretty laid back and once you have proven to not be an idiot generally whatever resources you need can be obtained.

We are very active =D There is usually a minimum 20 people in the general vicinity at nights when I play (during Mining Ops I have seen 25+ people in ONE BELT at the same time), and in slow times still 5-10 folks to mess around with. Since we mostly are in the same area I run into corp mates all the time even when just soloratting and not trying to! I LOVE that about it, as EVE was starting to feel like a solo MMO for a while when I was doing missions.

There are a lot of generous folk, especially to newcomers who prove that they actually want to stick with the game. If you seem nice and want to actually have fun, people would be willing to hand out free ships and ISK to you I'm sure. Theres a handful of ships generally in the corp hanger that are "Free to a Good Home", and not just frigates, I've seen Battlecruisers and some Tech II's in there.

Anyways rant off: Just skip Low Sec, its stupid. Your in the pirates hands there. When your in a good alliance in 0.0, The ball is in your hands...

That was a terrible closing sentence. Laughing

Tips:
1) Use the smallest ship you can, for your purpose. A frigate will get past gatecamps easier than a destroyer, for example. Consider using a T2 frigate (assault ship) when you get to level 2 missions.

2) Make insta-undock bookmarks. Basically when nobody's around, undock from your favorite mission station and fly straight out a thousand kilometers, then make a bookmark. Next time you undock, warp immediately to that bookmark before going to your mission. If your angle was straight enough, you should warp instantly and it'll be nearly impossible to catch you.

3) Join a local corporation, even a pirate corp, so that you can join the big boys on PVP operations when you feel like it.

people like this are to thick headed and to stubborn to get that you will be killed over and over and over in low sec. yes i know the op said she will be killed in low sec but i don't think he gets how bad of a isk drain it will be.

the only way form some one like this to learn is to die over and over and then come whining on the forms about how eve is to hard and how it sucks.

People like this, pardon my saying so, are too thick-headed and too stubborn to get that the point of an internet spaceship game is the thrill of seeing spaceships blow up, and the knowledge that sometimes it'll be yours. They actually look at "fun" and call it an "isk drain". What sad, sad lives they live...

I'm just going to say that living out of Low Sec or 0.0 without a corp as a newbie is a very bad idea. You do one of the following as a noobie:

Live in High sec doing whatever you wish.

Join a corp and live in High Sec.

Join a corp and live in Low Sec.

Join a corp and live in 0.0.

As you get skills there are tons of roles, from pirating to trading, that can be done solo from 1.0 to 0.0, but as a noob it is just not realistic.

people like this are to thick to understand that dieing over and over and over and over and over......and just for a change of pace dieing agian is not fun and will turn a person who is only a few weeks old off of the game but apparently your to stupid to understand that.

Jack, it may surprise you but there is a lot of people that call this 'isk sink' fun. We start losing t1 frigates to later lose more expensive ships, and at some point even kill things too.

The type of people that seek for advice, think about and go to play for fun its exactly the type of player EVE needs. Dont discorage then just because you dont undertand then.

i know that if you haven't noticed yet im in a 0.0 alliance who atm has a load of wars going on and i have been in this game for years. i know all about killing and losing ships what im saying is that a little 2 week old char who has probly never heard " dont fly what you cant afford to lose " and who thinks low sec is not as bad as people make it out to be wll lose evey thing and cry about how eve is too hard.

Anyways if you say the OP its stuborn, thick headed and whinner its because you have a serious lack o reading compreension.You are talking about risk/reward but fail to notice that in the case of the OP risk IS the reward he looks for.

I dont know if the OP will be suscesfull or not, no one know. But I know that his attitude its much better then the people that read the 'advice' "While in noob state, dont go low sec or you will be killed many many times" and think they need to mine in a hulk to be able to afford to lose a simple t1 frig.

Good choice OP.

You know what you want out of the game and are going to go get it. Only way this game should be played tbh.

From reading your post and responses, you sound like you'll do just fine.

Do read some of the resource threads. Do see if you can find a few friends to enjoy low-sec with.

Fly Safish.

Edit:

And to the few posters trying to discredit everyone supporting the OP by inferring we have greater experience and SPs:

You are talking out of your ass.

I've played for about 2 years and can no longer count the number of folks I've met that headed out to low sec as rookies and have been successful.

This actually sounds like something I would be looking for. However, I am Minmatar and already have some negative standing with Amarr and Caldari just from doing missions. Not sure if that would end up being an issue in this case.

what you fail to notice is that he does not fully understand the RISK, yeah he might think "ok well i want to go to low sec so ill just load evey thing of value i have in one ship and make the trek down there, WOW this next jump is into my very first 0.4 system YAY (jumps) what is with all the flashy red, BOOM, oh no i just lost Evey thing this game is stupid wah wah wah wah.

The only risk i see here is to kill myself with boredom, playing alone in high-sec, mining some rocks....

So, i've subscribed a online PVP game, paying for it with RL money, and you are telling me that the best thing to do while beeing a new guy, is to avoid any fun?....ok....!

I know that i will be killed. And again.. and again...and once more... tadatadatada.
I know that i will loose pixel money...tons of it. That is not the point.
The point is that i want to play EvE while having fun, even if i take that RISK you so horrible talk about.


For the rest of the repliers, thx for the input and links provided. Very Happy

You would be surprised how many people in this game think this way.

Go to low sec, you will be a much better player for it, but you should think about joining a corp there. Then you learn how to stay safe and how to pvp much faster. Pvp experience is much more important than skillpoints.

The worst players in eve is the ones that only mission until they have 40 mill sp (or some other magic number) because they think they need it to pvp. And then go into low sec with their mission ship only to get blown up. Those are the people you find in noob corps claiming that its impossible to be in low sec.
