I have a paladin and a nightmare that I use to run Amarr missions with. My question is, is it worth it to use them for Caldari as well, or should I might as well just use a Drake/Raven/Golem/CNR?

Basically how effective would it be, or would it just be plain stupid?

You can do it, and it wouldn't be hard, just annoyingly slow because EM is a poor damage type against guristas and thermal is only 2nd best (I dunno which is worse though, EM or explosive).

I do missions in amarr space with a Paladin and I can get through the occasional Guristas mission without difficulty, but if I were going to be fighting them predominantly, I'd probably get something that can spit out a lot of kinetic damage instead.

I have used a paladin on a variety of mission types. It rules all. I have never encountered a situation where the damage types have overtly hindered my progress. Hobs / Hammers deal effectively with anything too annoying.

I would suggest using CNR for gurista and angels.

Edit: Or Golem, if you prefer. Can be effective with a bit cheaper fit, but hull will set you back a bit more ofc. Nightmare / Paladin can do it ofc, but guristas have as bad EM resistance as Angels basically so you will be slower in Paladin/Nightmare than in CNR/Golem in those missions.

Can be done, but painfully slow. Go ahead if you want to experience it, but otherwise run Guristas/Angels in a CNR.

Nightmare/Paladin does that much raw dps you can do plexes against Angels and not care about the damage type really. I know this cause i've been doing it :)

Ideally you do want a Golem, but you can make do jsut fine with either ship.
