Quick rundown: 3.5mil SP pilot, 1 level of BS from an Abaddon. Can fit it darn well too Laughing. From what I have heard, using an Abaddon (not necessarily specifically an Aba) against anything but Sansha, Blood, etc. is difficult and sometimes "disastrous". As I understand it, Amarrian space will give you rats and missions better suited for Amarrian ships, and likewise with minmatar. Any more developed information about this? I already have a 4.5 standing with Republic Justice Dept. in Minmitar space, and the questions boil down to:

- Would it be in better interest to take my mission rigs to Amarrian space?

- Am I going to have a difficlt time with Minmatar missions @ level 4? Moreso than with Amarrian Missions?

PS: I do find it kind of silly that alot of my high end LP rewards are pretty much useless to me out in Minnie space..

Minmatar missions will have you fights mostly against Angels/gistii rats. There are two reasons why these rats suck for amarr. For one their lowest resistances are kinetic and explosive, EM and thermal are their high resists and that's what your lasers do. For two they do plenty of explosive damage themselves and so are difficult to tank in armor-tanked ships like the Amarr ships.

You can run these missions in Amarr ships, but if your goals is to make more ISK/time then I suggest you train up to use a Raven as it works much better against Angels.

Thanks for the reply. Ive actually stumbled upon several threads in the past few minutes, ironically, that talk about this. Back to Amarr I suppose. Market sucks. :P

I hate giving out this advice, but if you want to run missions (particularly against Angels), train for a Raven. It's just far better than the other BSes, I'm afraid.

Wb Hippoking!

Raven is very good for missions, yes.
Also very good is the dominix, due to its rock solid tank. Cool

For the best mission running the raven has it hands down, with the navy issue version of the ship being the master of all. If you are serious about running missions it would really be a good idea to train up for a raven.

That being said, if you don't mind being a little slower, as stated above the Dominix is well suited to running missions. It uses drones for its primary damage, so you can change out damage type at will (like you can with a raven, and which you cannot do with amarr BS's using lasers). In addition to this they do have a most awesome tank, and are relatively inexpensive to boot.
