Excerpts from the Preface:

Piracy is the most fun you can have in EVE in my opinion, and something many new players seem attracted to. I myself played many long hours of mind numbing mission running before I attempted my first PvP combat. I died quickly, and could not find any guides that provided the information I needed to survive. So I set about learning to pirate properly all by myself, armed with nothing but a stack of T1 frigates and a desire to yar.

Now, many years and four corporations latter, I am finally confident enough to pass my knowledge on.

This guide is intended to thoroughly fill you in on the basics you need to pirate, and get you up and running with the minimum of hassle. Provided in this first draft is everything you need to know to get out and yar, including settings for your UI, scanning skills, basic tactics, advice, and fittings and tactics for T1 frigates (and before you ask, YES they are effective pirate ships, even solo, and NO you don't need high skill points! Trust me!)

Version History:



2.1: Added Strategies, Tactics, and Attrition section, added Weapons section, added Fitting In General section. Numerous small fixes throughout, including rewriting frigate section to give due credit to the monstrous little Incursus.

(I apologize for some of the spelling errors/artifacts in the new sections, I didn't fully edit before posting. As soon as I can acess the original files on my computer I'll fix them)

Thank you. You have no idea how much work went into this, and you're the first person to say anything nice. =P I dont know why I bother with the EVE-O forums sometimes.

Seems good, but you should just make it into a .PDF and put it on eve-files. :P

Nice job Skira. But really, I think it would have been easier to just make a PDF and keep it updated on eve-files or something. People are going to come along and spam your subsection threads just to mess with them.

And don't pay any attention to the noobs in here. All the guys who know what they're doing recognize the work. Keep it up.

Short answer: thats what I'm doing right now, but I was stupid and didn't bother to figure out how to encode PDF before posting.

Thanks though. The subsections will be deleted/locked when I get my PDF done
