Now that the end of my 5/4 Learning skills training is almost here, I've been thinking about what I should do afterwards. I think I've made about 20 skillplans already, but I'm never happy with it. The problem is that I know what I want to end up with, but I'm not sure what to do inbetween. My endgoal for now is to fly both Minmatar and Amarr Battleships, specifically the Typhoon, Maelstrom and the Abaddon, well. My main intention is to do PvP first and later on add Wormhole operations, there is no need for any isk gathering activities as my miner alt can take care of that.
At the moment I can fly a Rifter .. reasonably well. My first thought was to add support skills so I can fly it better, so I googled around a bit and found this
site which turned out to be quite good. I'll be getting all the skills listed there to IV except for targeting which will remain at III. After that I start to get some doubts.
At first I thought I should look at the recommended certificates for the Rifter and add those, but I'm not too sure if those are any actual good.
After I have those I thought I should go look for a new ship class to fly, which comes down to three real choices: Assault Ships ( Wolf & Jaguar ), Destroyer ( Thrasher ) and the Cruisers ( Rupture and perhaps the Stabber ). I honestly don't know what would be the best way to go, as either of those seem to have their pro's and cons.
I also thought about getting Interceptors, but those seemed to be glorified tacklers. Unless I read the description wrong, of course
The obvious path after either of the three mentioned above would probably be Battlecruisers, the Hurricane specifically. I would probably get the recommended certificates for all these ships as well. Next would be the Battleships and the related ceritficates.
Does this look like a good plan of action? Are the certificates a good way to go, or should I manually add skills so I don't wast SP on skills I'll never use?
Thanks in advance, and excuse and mistakes I'll probably have made.
