Simple question really:

I have the pre-req. for both but was just wondering which would be the better one to train for?

Thanks!!

I believe Chimera's are more popular.

If it's your first Carrier, I suggest the Chimera. It will tank better than most, and it's still a nice repping ship that fits into most fleets.

Chimera, hands down.

The cap transfer and resist bonus makes the chimera ideal for spider tanking (producing cap like guardians/basi do) this means it can even be used in armor gangs.

If I had to pick I'd go chimera, thats not to say the nid is useless.

Go the Nid, it has less cap but is more forgiving for fitting mods.

Nid has a small place in my heart, right next to the POS I have to rep from time to time. Wink

Seriously Chimera over Nidhoggur?

Nidhoggur isnt an Archon, but easily 2nd best carrier for its versatility.

Thanatos is better than Nidhoggur because Nid is only better for suicide pos rep and Thanatos lets you get into Nyx eventually. Not to mention it is slightly easier to fit.

When I was five years old... Robots ate my parents. Ever since then I've been on a quest to avenge them. Your question might seem simple at first but it's too bland... What are you trying to do with it? Chimmy has an awesome local tank but most cap fleets fly armor and if it's a mixed cap fleet and you are the smaller blob chances are you are going to lose a lot of cap ships. The Niddy on paper can do more and in terms of reps looks like the best carrier but it's problem is Fitting as it's hard to run a good fit... Now back to my more important topic, Skynet has been operating under the radar for sometime now and grows stronger every day... We've got to stop it.

1. Most fleets are armour

2. Chimera needs both meta mods and a 200m meta booster just to a. fit a tank and b. tank as much as a t2 fit archon at the same cap stability - which has oodles more fitting room.

Then again, the thanny has a more powerful shield tank than it does armour, it comes down to being good with the ship more than the stats tbh.
