As a new player to PVP who finally just got his first kill, I canít give you any ďproĒ tips, but I thought I could share the things that were important lessons for me. First off, you have to arrange your windows so that local is ALWAYS visable, you need to know who is around and check their profiles to see if you can glean any info from their bio, corp, etcÖ
1. Be sure to set up your overview for PVP, if youíre not sure how, this guide is excellent: Linkage
2. LEARN HOW TO USE D-SCAN if you donít know how. This is an OK video: Linkage
3. Making good bookmarks is essential to stay safe and find your targets. This is a great E-Uni class that helped me a lot: Linkage
4. Get ready to die. Youíll lose a bunch of ships, but itís not as expensive as you think. I lost 15 ships before I finally got a kill, my first fight I didnít even activate any of my modules. I just froze and watched myself blow up. When you know youíre gonna lose and canít get away, select a moon from your GTFO tab and spam the warp out button Ė youíll almost never lose your pod if you do this.
I usually roll solo, sounds like you will be in a fleet and Iím really not knowledgeable about fleet ops yet so I canít help you with that. Also, I have no experience living in null sec, Iím sure there are specific things that you need to be aware of (like bubbles) that you should investigate.
Good luck and Go Get Em'!!!
EDIT: Just re-read your post, thought I would add my Iskur fit, might want to get an opinion from a more experienced player as to how good it is
