I've maxed out all of my drone skills except amarr drones and need to decide whether to bother with it before remapping away from mem/perc.

Gallente and matari are standard and caldari are useful for killing vagabonds but what about amarr? Are there any worthwhile applications to make up for their poor stats?

They are good for RPing.
Like if you want to fly amarr only ships with amarr only drones with amarr only........

If you're talking about going from IV to V, I wouldn't worry about it unless you're planning to go into a carrier/mom. Otherwise, IV is fine for PvP usage.

Infiltrators are actually useful drones if you fly Curse/Pilgrim platforms. They have a place.

The only Amarr drones worth ever using are Curators.

Acolytes/Infiltrators are pretty good against rogue drones and they are faster/much better tracking than hobs, which really helps against those little elite 'strain' buggers. Having used both extensively in drone anoms I can't see much difference in killing speed against the small stuff tbh...

...quite a bit cheaper to lose than hobs too / otherwise no, they suck...except Curators ofc. Wink

Perhaps I should have mentioned that I don't PvE.

Only reason is so you can kill missioning/plexing T1 shield tankers or Caldari/Gallente T2 shield tankers who are tanking Kinetic and Thermic even faster. They will have ridiculous Thermic and Kinetic resist, explosive will have a natural 50%, but EM resist will often be 0%. So, the question is do you kill a lot of missioning drakes, ishtars, tengus etc?

The only teason I ever use them is: If I found them for free, and I plan on dying in the next 10 minutes Wink

The other *good* reason to train them- Is to make the skill catagory perfect.

I honestly think they mixed up the damage modifier on Amarrian and Minmatar drones. It actually makes sense if you think about it...

If you are talking PvP in 98% your choice will be Warrior II. At least no amarr drone.
