I'm starting an alt, I can't decide what skills I need to buy. The char is Caldari, so I think I should get shield skills. But I've heard some of the best mining ships are Brutix, Megathron, because they have a ton of high slots and a good tank? Thoughts?

Apoc! Rohk!

Failing that, get a covetor or a hulk.

The mans not wrong, can't go wrong with any of those ships... though some would look at you funny for using a tier 3 BS for mining hehe.

Mega is much worse then a Domi for mining.

Domi get 6 lasers and lots of drone mining. and you still have a good defence if mining in lowsec.

Apoc is also good but doesn't have the fighting ability of the Domi. (Better mining tho)

Cruisers are Scythe and Osprey with their mining bonuses but if you don't have high levels in cruiser you want raw turret slots and then the Battle cruisers are really good but lack in CPU for Miner II's.

If you train for barge tho never mind the Procurer and only get a Retriver if you can use Modulated stripmining laser II's since a Apoc or Domi outmine a Retriever with standard stripminers. Covetor is the only Barge that is good enough to fly for mining if you want that as you main dudy. It take a while to train for and the rest of your skills will suffer from it.

But then again what do I know about mining. Very Happy

I'm guessing the apoc would have a really bad ass tank and drones to pick off any annoying npcs?

Mega and Domi have the same drone mining capabilities - the Dominix does not (despite much whining) have a mining drone yield bonus.

Rooooooookh!

8 mining lasers, a gajillion CPU for all those mining upgrades in your lows, and plenty of mid slots for a nice tank!

if your mining in an apoc you cant really tank because you need CPU upgrades in your low slots, even less if you add 2 mining laser upgrades.

The Dominix is best all round ship I've found, other than a Hulk for ore pwnage.

Ive posted in Hal's thread, just want to voice it here. How can you still say the Domi as the best mining ship?

I haven't run the exact numbers, but it seems the rokh can outmine/tank it. Hasn't anyone run the numbers for an uber mining rokh?

The best mining ships are the mining barges. Takes a long time to train them, but even the first little one is better than a megathron at mining :)


Barges 4tw!

Unless they've changed lots of things, no they aren't. Only the Covetor (as far as I can remember) is better than a Mining Battleship, at least the Apoc. Retriever is barely behind it, but the Apoc's still better with Miner IIs.
