Exerpt:
A long time ago, in late 05 when I was first getting into piracy, I wrote a guide that has since become
one of the staple piracy guides on the sticky.

(A side note: this was on another character, who I sold for ISK [which I gave to in-game friends] when
I thought I was quiting the game for good. The player who bought my character seems to be taking
credit for my hard work now, and I cant go back and delete my old post in favor of this one *sigh*.
Anyways: )

So Jack McSwain wrote this not the Skira Ranos making the post....

Thank you very much for this guide. I've always wanted to know how to use the scanner, and fly solo in a Merlin.

Time to get my friend and go pirating.

Although I can only read the online version, which isn't supposedly updated. I can't download the PDF, the page is broken or something.

Checking back on this, it just continues to grow into something even more awesome.

I get a lot of mail from rookie players who're looking to start off in game as pirates, I'll be sure to refer them to this thread. The layout and awesome content basically mean it's required reading to be honest.

Awesome stuff. Cool

Props to a great guide, even if it isn't finished. I had the pleasure of fighting against BM and BMBC for a couple months when I lived in Oto, there were great fights to be had and I can say that all of their pilots from the rifter pilots to their T2 cruiser pilots all fly incredibly smart.

Will come back soon, YARRRR!!

When do you think you will have the "newb target detabase" up? Here is what I would love to see in that section, with comments for both solo pirates and gangs.

Prime targets
Target cautiously
Targets to avoid

Those are 3 that would be most helpful to me. thx, awesome guide and corp btw.

nice guide, i'm new so i can't help but wondering at one section of your guide that says i should be setting my targets on destroyers among other things. I can understand cruisers since they have bigger guns but arent destroyers made to take out frigates? I just took one look at a destroyer's attributes and decided i shouldn't mess with those judging from the number of turrets and ship bonuses it gets. or do destroyers fit medium guns or is there something im missing here?

In theory, you are correct, a proper PvP fit destroyer will rip a frigate apart in seconds. In reality, however, very few destroyers are flown by high-skill PvP pilots. The vast majority of them are flown by newbie carebears looking for their first upgrade from a frigate before they have the skills for a cruiser, and are very easy kills.

i dunno. if i were in a destroyer and a frigate jumped me, pve fit or not i would think i could handle him simply because i have more guns/high innate tracking speed. even for noobs like me itd just be a matter of target lock and twiddle your thumbs... unless i am missing something here i still don't see how destroyers are easy kills for frigates.

More guns, but same DPS due to the ROF penalty. And considerably less tank than a frig. And often range fit, and tracking bonus or no, ranged guns wont track a close orbiting frig.
