Ive spent all of my time maxing skills for the Nightmare battleship and it is my only Ratting ship.
Ive got Amarr/Caldari BS V plus all support skills and all drone skills and all gunnery skills.

I can make more isk in highsec but its getting boring so i want a one man boat that i can waste time in nullsec/lowsec just ratting and occasionally pvping. The biggest problem i can see is getting past gatecamps in null.

1. The Tengu seems to be a good multi purpose ship but will it need constant resupplies of missiles if i end up in nullsec
2. Pilgrim seems a great ship, but how good is it in escaping nullsec gatecamps. No need to resupply
3. Vagabond seems to be the nullsec ship of choice but does it need resupplies and how does it do with gatecamps
4. Ishtar. seems to be a great ship but its all about gatecamps
5. Any other ship that you can advise

Are any ships that are not specifically bonused for scanning a waste of time. ive got most of those skills to IV or sometimes V

Lastly i really dont want to join a nullsec alliance as 15% tax and being ordered around constantly is not my thing as is waiting in a giant fleet for several hours for nothing to happen.

Thanks for the advice.

Your views would be appreciated.

Both the ishtar and gila rock for nullsec ratting. Just make sure you put a mwd and cloak on it.

Most of the time when you jump into a gate camp the best option is to wait out your session timer, and then burn back to gate and jump out. This will get you out of most camps, but you are then stuck waiting till the camp is gone to move on.

1/ Stealth bombers works fine for ninja ratting 0.0 belts ( just avoid the belts who have inties or AF npc , they will tear you a new one pretty fast )

2/ expandable BC or BS, fit it cheap

3/ hac or faction cruiser like ishtar or gila are also good , at least for low sec , dont forget to stick a MWD in it so you can burn to the gate if you jump to a gatecamp ( or at least try )

avoid Curse ( region ) if you want to rat in a "relative" peace,

4/ you can also stick a core probe launcher and a cloak on an ishtar and use WHs to move to differents regions via new WH exit ( just make sure you ve got an up to date clone before entering WHs ) its a very effective way to travel and bypass 0.0 gatecamp entrances.

Log off in a C4 - C6 WH, when you log back in, search for 0.0 exit, go through , do what you want and when you re bored, scan for another WH entrance
