Just mining in hisec I am about a week or so away from getting T2 crystals and t2 Mlu. I was looking at some skill plans for missioning, but I wouldnt wanna start that until this semester ends. Soo, I was wondering if I should just go ahead and start training for that or put a bit more focus into mining. Just wasn't sure what other skills for mining there were if I'm just staying in hisec. Exhumers V, thought about that while typing so maybe would be closer to a month for the skills I know I will be getting before looking at missioning skills.

Obvious shield tanking support skills.

Ofc does´nt make a lot of sense when planning to fly armor tankers in missions.

Evasive Maneuvering 5 as the hulk aligns very slow.

Just to name "something".

lasers are only good in amarr space and maybe gallente, but if you have t2 drones and can fly an orca, you can run level 3s and maybe some lvl 4s in an orca just about everywhere

but you said you are training t2 lasers and since you fly a hulk I also assume you have good shield skills.
I saw a fit somewhere on here about a shield tanked apocalypse that is somewhat plausible to use.
but the issue here is tanking and killing.

I could go on about what you need but if you want to use your shield AND laser skills for use in amarr space, you will have to shell out some money for a sansha ship as they use lasers and shields but the cross training required might be out of the question for you. the only good thing for a miner that may come out of this would be access to the rokh and the abbadon which are excellent mining ships and can tank most 0.0 belt spawns while maintaining some degree of mining capablilty.

but if you really want to mine high value rocks I recommend you find a c4 wh corp or higher, they will appreciate someone that can mine and manufacture everything they need (PI skills are also welcome), and as long as you don't do something stupid and die outside the POS.

one more thing, if you are planning to join any corp, secure everything you don't want to lose and get into a jump clone with cheap implants (so if they decide to kill you or if someone else decides to kill you, you don't lose 500+ mil in implants)

and do fly safe. also, my recommendation is to avoid 0.0 and aim for a wh corp, the politics in 0.0 will get you killed sooner or later and no one out there will care

Important part in that statement:

Bad idea is bad. If you want to do missions, train up to a racial battlecruiser- the ship is a tenth the cost, and it'll do the job better. It's not like training to T1 BCs is terribly time-intensive.
