I'm having a very hard time focusing in this game. I have two accounts, one is industrial in nature, while the other is pure combat. neither is over 3MM SP.

I also have 1 Billion+ ISK thanks to EVE-Radio! (Thanks again)

Combat Missions can get very repetitive. I have yet to have a special moment. I warp in lock on to red Xs and fire away. Mining is lucrative but boring as hell. I haven't tried BPOs yet but that's basically to make more money. So far PvP just scared me. I have no idea what the complexities are.

I have more money that I know what to do with, I simply don't have the skills to enter the realm of expensive equipment and ship.

So considering that its a open universe, I'm left wondering what would show me the wonders of EVE. Wormholing? I'm too new right? I'll just get chewed up and spit out...

So, if you were a young, young pilot with enough money to easily fund all you base needs. What would you do?

You have a lot of money, but you're still relatively new to the game. Shelve that money for now, it's not much use to you.

I would start running level 4's in hisec. Amazing income source, easy to learn game mechanics, and you'll train the important skills.
Once you're comfortable doing this, you'll probably be bored out of your mind.

Start PvPing. You'll have enough isk to fit nice frigates/cruiser/battlecruisers. Join RvB or FW, as no good PvP corp will take you in without any experience. Learn the mechanics of PvP, how to handle yourself in a fight. Get kills and losses. All the while, you'll have a solid income source from level 4 missions.

Then evaluate from there :)

Tough question to answer since it's all about what you want to do and what is fun for you. You are right about being too new for womholing, solo anyways.

However, my suggestion would be to use that money to fund yourself with cheap frigates, cruisers and battle cruisers to learn how to pvp, join a PvP corp.

Join a corp. The money you have now is a means to an end, not an end in itself.

So, if skills, etc, weren't an issue what would you like to do? Because whatever you want to do, chances are that there are other players already doing it - seek them out and join in :)

and good luck :)

You may have the ISK, but you don't have the skills to do much but practice, and if combate pve bores you I'd recommend pvp.

Get yourself a frig and join a good corp in low sec. Then start trying to blow people up and not get blown up. If you like, read some guides on pvp and piracy. Remember that nothing can equal the real experience of it, though.

If in about a month it turns out you just hate pvp with a passion...give trading a try. There are plenty of things to do in Eve and you're uniquely set to get into them easier than most people.

Btw...mining is by no stretch of the imagination lucrative compared to other professions.

Also, Iwin for not asking for money.

Red vs Blue....

Yeah, I know, oh look another Red Fed guy turning this into another recruitment thread. Still, the simple truth is... PvP is not hard. It's quite fun, and in all honesty, the easiest way to get started is to spend some time in Red Fed or the Blue Republic. You'll get some good practice, meet some nice people, and have fun. Plus with that much ISK, who cares if you lose a bunch of cheap frigates while you have fun.

You keep your Industrial toon out and use him to make money if you ever need it, and in the mean while, both toons can keep training up skillwise. For the more PvP/combat oriented character you'll slowly learn what skills you want. For the Industrial alt, honestly, if you want to know more, join an industrial corp and see how you can help them and how they can help you. Now this is just a suggestion, but a good way to get into PvP and see if you truly like it.

An alternative... well... if missions are not your thing, what about exploration? Pop out your probes and see what's there. You'll need these skills if you dare to venture into wormholes anyways, and well, I find it fun. The chance for faction spawns and loot, the random nature of not knowing what you will find, and the extra isk when you do find something good is always fun. To me, exploration is the equivalent of dungeon crawling to find the next interesting item of loot. Missioning isn't the same really. You may get good loot, but you know where the mission is, you know what to expect thanks to eve survival, and well, it's more like trying to level by grinding away. At least with exploration, you can find something new.

Thanks for all the replies and advice. Bored at work so this is keeping me awake.

Wormholing does seem to offer a good amount of excitement and mystery. A consistent theme I see is "join a corp" I've been in two, and well I guess I choose poorly. They both never seemed to have anyone on and when there was someone on they were silent. Additionally they didn't seem to have any goals. The led me to just quitting them.

I guess PvP is something to try. I just don't yet understand how I'm going to compete in a lil frigate while older players are flying battleships and the like. Seems like pew pew vs. KABOOM! and to further add to my confusion, if I do find someone in a frigate they are most likely geared to all hell. I simply don't run into new players (low SP). This is probably just a huge perspective thing but I'm hesitant to spend 30-60 minutes shopping and equipping a ship just to have it blown to smithereens for experience. (I did learn to buy more than I need of a piece that I know I'll be using for awhile.

You can get a huge amount of t1 frigs for a tenth of your cash - get out there and get blown up, until you start blowing up other people.

red v blue would be good, or eve Univ if it is still going

Keep looking for a corp that suits your needs, they do exist.

I think your perceptions of pvp are off a little. Skillpoints and gear certainly do help in pvp but they really aren't as big of a factor in determining the outcome of a fight as many people think.

Instead of just buying 1 ship and losing it just to have to take the time to go purchase and refit a new one. Buy a stack of 20 frigates and gear and move it all close to where you will be doing your pvp.

Red vs Blue is two corps at constant war and is setup to be relatively evenly matched, easy to get fights rather than the cat and mouse traps of low sec and 0.0 warfare. Some people may not consider it real pvp but it is a great training ground for people without total commitment.

Well, basically it is the eve equivalent of the Halo thing. It's two corporations, Red Federation vs Blue Republic. They are in a constant war dec with each other (an other, 3rd party war targets who like to either pick on them, pad their kills, or just get in on the fun without quitting corps).

Usually, when fighting inside of Red vs Blue, there are rules that help make life a little safer. No ECM Jammer mid slots, no pod killing, simple things. Also, they tend to try to arrange fights. Instead of everyone bringing their best and most expensive, they tend to fly around in frigates, destroyers, or cruisers. Yes at times it will escalate, and yes the 3rd party wartagets will bring anything they can, but for the most part it's geared towards people like you... those who don't yet understand PvP, want to practice and have fun, but not expand past frigate and cruiser battles.

Edited to add: Also, they generally fight in the Tourier/Allentene region, so if you leave that area, for the most part you are left alone and can go back to mission running or whatever you like. Plus, they are rather liberal with recruitment. They don't mind if you drop corp and come back later, or even switch sides. It's just about having fun trying PvP.

As I've listed it in other posts, the path to PvP I would advocate to most is... start with Red vs Blue to get your feet wet and see if you like it. Then progress into a good Factional Warfare corporation, and lastly pirate/low/nul sec alliances and corps.

As for joining a corp, yeah, you should try to find a better corp than those. Try to find one that matches your age, maturity, and play style. No sense joining a corp of 12 year olds who like to grief, if you prefer an older crowd that is more laid back. On the other hand, this is another one of those hard things. You have to find a corp and alliance that you mesh well with. It can be hard, but check the recruitment posts and look for a group that meets your expectations.

One last alternative, look into Eve University. It may be a way to gain a better understanding of the Eve universe, what is available to you, and see what you may enjoy doing. Who knows, you may meet some friends there, and form your own corp once you are ready.

there is no best ship in eve mate, a competent frigate or cruiser pilot on a new character can easily give something like a battleship a hard time. Can't remember who, think it was a couple of guys from the goons? they made a video of them creating brand new accounts and successfully pvping in their week old rifters.

so remember, every ship has a weakness its just a case of gaining experience and eventually knowing what they are - it does become second nature quicker than you think.

lastly, as a new character if you focus your skills properly i.e frigate / cruiser you can become max / close to maxed skilled in that ship fairly quickly, thus giving you little disadvantage over a pilot with 100 mil+ sp

I still fly frigates, I have over 25m skillpoints. Battleships aren't all that to be honest.

If you don't need to grind or work for isk you can chill and go exploring instead.

exploration is pve without being an obvious grind like mission running and you can find some interesting stuff on your travels.

Maybe even setup a pos in a wormhole and see how you do there. This might need a little bit more skilling before you can manage it though.

19 posts, and RvB has been mentioned in five of them. Rolling Eyes

OP, pay no mind to these fanboys. They're arrogant and annoying forum trolls who think anyone in RvB is all that, and their recruiting in every single ****ing PVP thread is really annoying me. Wait, it's not even a PVP thread. Ye gods.

I would much more reccommend:
Aaron's invitation to 0.0

It's smaller scale than the 700v500 that is rvb, and you'll make more friends and enjoy small gang warfare that way. Not only will you make decent money from PvE, but there is an element of PVP as well. You'll also learn how to survive in nullsec with limited resources, and learn tons of tactics.

If you don't want to head out to 0.0 just yet, then start your own corporation! If you can find some friends to join your corp, invite them in, and build up a small community. Once you're ready to start PVPing, Go to battleclinic and find some good frigate/cruiser/battlecruiser fits (Rifters, Ruptures, and Hurricanes are recommended.) Then start by war-deccing a small PVP corp, with similar size and skill to you. Exchange fire with them a few times, have some fun. Rebuild and repeat as you gain more members. Use L4 missions to make cash when you're not pew pewing.

Hope I was useful.

Wow dude, you angry about something ?

I mentioned RvB so does this make me an arrogant and annoying forum troll as you put it ? Maybe you were looking in the mirror when you had that thought.

I have never been in Red or Blue corp or ever had anything to do with them in any way so why don't you take your head out of Aarons ass and shove right up your own.

The OP mentioned he had no pvp experience and if he took your advice to make some "friends", go to battleclinic and then start war-deccing people he's in for a world of frustration.

I can just picture the poor guys recruitment now "Hey, looking to start a new pvp corp here. I have no experience with PvP but whats the worst that can happen right ?" Not gonna end well.

Tell me how is he going to know what a "good pvp" setup is when he has no idea what is involved in pvp to begin with ?

RvB is a much better option for him to get his feet wet with pvp rather than take your arrogant and annoying troll advice.

Now, having said all that if the OP does indeed have interest in going to 0.0 to live and learn how to survive out there then Aarons project is a good option. I give Aarons 0.0 project just as much of an endorsement as RvB since I have equal experience with both of them which is absolutely zero.

This.

At one time I had more isk than I knew what to do with. I lived in a C1 wormhole for a little bit. It's a bit rough without the proper skills.

Speaking of which, since you've got a massive amount of cash you should invest in, at least, +3's (for now) and a good chunk of skills.

As for exploration, can't recommend this enough. It's fun. Relaxing. Sometimes slow, but you set the pace generally. Train up Covert Op's ships such as Stealth Bombers and it's scanner counterpart. Warping while cloaked is awesome.

I am not angry at you specifically. I'm just angry at the fact that every single thread these days seems to have 50% of the responses referring to RvB in some way.

To give you an example:

Some guy: I want to start PVP, what do I do?
Response #1: [trolls the OP in some way]
Response #2: RVB!
Response #3: RVB!
Response #4: [insert eve meme here]
Response #5: RVB!

It's bordering on trolling, and people who go to every single thread endorsing it are more than arrogant. I come to the EVE forums to read about EVE and the people who play EVE, not this mystical thing called RvB which will solve all your problems. If you aren't one of those people who goes endorsing RvB on every single thread, then I have nothing against you. Since you seem to have gotten so offended by what I said though, I do have something against you. Laughing

First of all, I'm not even allied with Aaron at the moment. Aaron has nothing against RvB. My remark about RvB had nothing to do with Aaron. Therefore, there is no way that my head is up Aaron's ass - I was simply giving the OP a good way to explore something new in EVE.

If you'd actually read my post, you'll see that I wasn't specifically advising him to make a PVP corp. The idea was to build up a small community. However, EVE is a PVP game, and he will eventually get into it somehow. Doing it with the aforementioned small community who you've grown to know and trust is a better way of getting into it, imo, then joining up with about 1000 unknowns in blobs.

I started PVPing when I had zero kills, and I was doing it in a Rifter in a very small corp. I died a lot, but as I PVPed more and more, I came to know what was a good fit and what wasn't. This made browsing battleclinic and spotting good fits easier.

And now, I'm in a small PVP corp, with me and a very trusted friend who I've known for about a year, and we've already had a few wardecs which have been quite fun for all involved. I can safely say that both invitation to 0.0 and making a small corporation are very fun.

Bleh, I am not gonna sit here an debate semantics with you. Fact is the OP asked for some advice and admitted he had tons of isk and no pvp experience. RvB is a very good option for learning the basics without any real commitment to a corp or alliance and will have no qualms with taking in a new player with zero experience. This is all of course if the OP does want to start learning how to pvp at all.

Either way, your post came off as very hostile and bitter for some reason. And when you start throwing words like arrogant, annoying and trolls at people just for mentioning something you dislike without knowing them at all you look like an ass.

I'm not objecting to the RVB concept. Only the blown-out-of-proportion RvB recruitment.
The reason I called them trolls is because, as I said, they're trolling by spamming RvB on every single thread. I'm NOT calling them arrogant or trolling because I dislike the RvB concept. (I said basically this in my last post, but what was I going to expect? That you would read it? *sigh*.)

Also, if my first post which had about a single line saying how people spamming RvB is annoying and arrogant was hostile, your response to that post was far worse.

And yes, I ♥ you too.

Well all sidetracked conversation aside, I appreciate everyone's input. I didn't know about RvB or EVE University or Aaron's Mission. So all things considered I feel wiser today than I did three days ago.

Here's my plan after much reading:

Try and join EVE University to get my basics down. From EU I'll look for a corp based in 0.0 but also focus on building up to wormhole capabilities. Finally my long term goal will be to start a Corp based on a Zealous Religion roleplay theme. But I won't to that until I get my feet wet. Hell i already have 3 in corp.

So there's my plan, and thanks for all the advice.

Moron.

a) 25m isn't a huge amount of SP, still a minnow amongst sharks, though it's enough for a focused character to be well beyond frigates unless they enjoy them.

b) Yes, plenty of BS die to frigates, though obviously if you knew you were going to fight a frigate you wouldn't be in a normal fit and therefore the fight would be meaningless.

But as an example of what a frigate swarm can do:
Frig and Dessie swarm

It's a bit messed up as the BS were anti-frigate fit with Smartbombs, though 16 of us did take down 2 HACs, 2 battleships and a cruiser worth many times our own losses.

Try and join EVE University to get my basics down. From EU I'll look for a corp based in 0.0 but also focus on building up to wormhole capabilities. Finally my long term goal will be to start a Corp based on a Zealous Religion roleplay theme. But I won't to that until I get my feet wet. Hell i already have 3 in corp.

So there's my plan, and thanks for all the advice.


If you find blobzilla warfare is not for you find a corp based in lowsec and join it for more small-time, less lag-tastic battles. Check the International Summit forum for RP. I wish you all the best in this game, I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.
