I've just returned back to Eve from a 15 month break and want to get back into Eve with missions and incursions.. I'm a indy/orca Pilot, I want to sell my acc and buy something decent. but that's another matter, I'm just curious which ships I should go for.

For Missions I was planning on going with a Raven/CNR then Golem, could anyone tell me if the Golem is the end game ship for doing missions? if needed I can make a second acc for a dedicated scavenger.

As for Incursions I'm unsure what I should train for.. I've been suggested a Nightmare or Vindicator but wondering if anything else could be recommended.. also how long would it take to train for a decent fit?

I was also wondering if it would be worth training for a Nighthawk or Tengu.

Thanks.

I tried the Raven didn't like. I'm guessing skills really need maxing to make it worthwhile.

You can make a second account for anything you want. However, I just have a noctis on standby in each of the surrounding systems and salvage after the mission is complete.

Can't help with Incursion info - not tried it.

I have a Nighthawk and a Tengu.
I can solo all lvl 4's in the Nighthawk. The Tengu is great for bs intensive missions but lack of drones make taking out warp scram frigs time consuming so I rarely use it. It does make ninjas less troublesome though so i am told as it is harder to scan down.

Good luck and welcome back!

Nightmare, Vindi, Mach for shield
Paladin, Navy Geddon, Vindi, Legion for armor

Armor logi will get you the most invites.

Battle ships are king of level 4's.
faction and marauders do a lot of dmg so can be seen as top end. Golem is nice because it can select damage types where nightmare only does EM so it depends what you are fighting.

for incursions..join the incursions channel and see what others are piloting. Battle ships and t3 are nice, as are command ships and logistics.

For PVE go Caldari, you will regret any other choice. Especially the Tengu ist very good at almost all PVE activities. All other races are limited to niches and even then can barely compete with Caldari ships.
