I have every Drone skill trained to IV, expect for Advanced Drone Interfacing and Fighters, which I haven't acquired, Mining Drones, which I have no desire to get, and Scout Drone Operation and Drones, which are at V. Amarr Drone Spec will be at IV in 3 days, after which I'll start training Spaceship Command IV -> Gallente Cruiser III -> G Cruiser IV -> Gallente Battleship I.

What else should I train, and in what order? Get Drone skills to V (I already intend to get Heavy Drone Op to V for T2)? Gunnery musts? Electronics? I can give other readout for skills on request.

If you're speccing into drones, you should be speccing into drones, not guns :P However, being able to use T1 large guns wont hurt.

-Drone Interfacing V
-Gall BS IV
-Heavy Drone Op V
-Gallente Spec IV
-Drone Nav V
-All other combat drone skills IV+
-Large Hybrid Turret IV
-All gunnery support skills III+

you'll probably want to train large hybrid skills before you get T2 heavies or interfacing V, simply because it's more DPS sooner- however it's your choice.

If I was sitting in front of a comp that had Eve installed, I'd be happy to give you more detailed suggestions- but for now, these should put you in the riht direction :)

Gunnery support skills? Which ones specifically?

Sharpshooter (increases optimal range)
Motion Prediction (increases tracking)
Controlled Bursts (decreases cap needs of your turrets)
Surgical Strike (increases raw DPS)
Rapid firing (increases rate of fire)
Trajectory analysis (increases accuracy falloff)

Get Gunnery to V, then these to IV, or so I've been told.

I have to tell you, Sentries are way better than heavies.

This!

I run a Drone Domi and this guy speaks the truth. With sentries you can pop a whole bunch of rats before heavies would even get to the first one.

My advice is get all T2 pre-recs then top off the support drone skills.

As for Gunnery, if you can fit ONE gun and fire it to grab agro.... thats all you need.

I'm skilling for Missions AND PvP, forgot to add. It's mostly fleet warfare, not so much solo stuff.

In the domi setup I run, I use Medium Hybrid turrets instead of large. While a smaller bit of DPS, the tracking lets you hit the smaller targets better, and your drones are doing the main damage anyway. Not to mention allows you with more fitting room.

One of your best bonus's in the Domi comes from the Battleship skill itself . Get it to 4 and consider getting it to level 5 asap .

in fleet warfare drones are kinda not so good. Confused

although then you will for sure want sentry drones and not heavies.

sentry drone interfacing to 5, and then you can use all racial tech 2 sentry drones Very Happy

gallente battleship 4, to 5 eventually. various gunnery skills will speed up your mission completion times if you want to fly your ship, if you want to go afk and let the drones do the work then let me recommend the ishtar.
drone interfacing 5
electronic warfare drone interfacing 4, or 5 if you are very serious about drones and have nothing better to do.
everything else to 4 or 5, but you say you have most of them at 4, should be able to tell by then which ones need to go to 5 Twisted Evil
