Fed up of my limited damage type, am i right in thinking every other race can fit ammo that will do whichever of the four damage types they want yet amarr are restricted to two?

basically living in a region of 0:0 that supports angel spawns, as this is how i make my isk when not pvp'ing its meant i have had to train hybrids to take them down. Once i have them i may aswell go the whole hog and train another races BS.

just peeved that 6 months training amarr seems wasted to a degree, i know alot of the base gunnery skills will transfer to hybrids so not totally wasted time but....

If i'm completely wrong please tell me why it would be appreciated

what they lack in dmg typ spread is made up for my overall damage. Also just talking pvp here, but aside from the minnie T2 ships, you will find EMP & thermal to be some of the lower resistances anyway, just from my experiences people dont tend to tank those to the degree of explosive or kinetic mostly due to the natural resists but anyways, your sp's deffo arnt wasted imo but cross training into missiles/drones would be a good move imo.

You are not wrong. And you might as well train missiles and go for Raven like alot of folks.

Hybrids are restricted for Therm/Kin only. if you want different damg types, go caldari or minmatar.

both of which do **** for DPS, so you might as well stick with amarr.

Ammar is a very good race, as are any others. Any gun ships take a lot of training to really see the differences.

Also, Ammar/Galante vs Caldari(missles)/Mimitar(howies) the difference is the way the damage is dealt. People like to see big chucks taken outta targes every time the guns fire. Ammar/Galante are more of a pecking away class. Now they have great damage over 20 seconds, especially compared to missles and howies. But if you're looking at the first hit to account for how good your guns are working, then you just won't see it.

That being said, stick with your race, especially if you liked them for some reason to start with. More training will really make the difference.

I love lasers, even against t2 Min ships, it merely takes longer to crack them.

As for Amarrian ships, best armor tanks period. Even the not so good Amarr armor tanks rival the best armor tanks of other races.
