So I was thinking of trying out incursions. What would you think is the best way of getting started?

Which ship would you bring?
- No missile boats
- No T2 Hybrids
- Anything else is fair game

I was thinking of staying away from using logi's until I know what I'm doing. So that leaves a DPS boat.

As an aside, is it best to just show up in an incursion system and look for fleets, or are there corps/channels for this stuff?

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you fly min, the hurricane is a good starting dps boat. Upgrades to loki's, sleip, tempest or maelstroms. Loki's are decent dps boats, excellent for VGs, especially in dual web setup you will be most useful. Sleipners are awesome dps boats in VGs, rivaling the best BS's. Tempest is a good choice, not seen much, prolly due to its more armor layout. Maelstrom is actually one of the best DPS ships, especially for the money.

If you fly amarr, start with the harbringer same as min. Upgrade would be all of the BS's, tho 'badden and 'geddon seem most popular. Nightmare and bhaalgorns are the ultimate upgrades for amarr.

I dont know if you meant you dont have/want T2 hybrids, but vindicator's are actually quite popular and great choices for incursions, even in VGs.

Some drone boats are also seen alot, things like navy scorp and rattlesnakes, prolly domis too.

I think the BTL pub public channel ingame is where I lurked a while ago, good atmosphere and very welcoming for new incursionrunners. Take a look there perhaps. There's also a seperate armor tanked fleet/channel, I forgot the name for that but I'm sure the guys in BTL know.
Good luck!

brb trusting my ship to strangers
brb looking for fleet for over 2 hours, when finally get a fleet together quickly disbands after 2 runs, earning a measly 20 mil
brb griefers logi looking to ruin players day by not repping his faction fit Vindicator and picking up his loot afterwards
brb always have to compete with faction bs's not getting any reward but gf's in local


sorry would rather run level 4's as it guarantees isk.

PLEASE dont forget the Paladin, its a better ship than the bhaalgorn (and probably nightmare too) for incursions.

The best ship for getting into incursions is a logi.

Hurricanes and a lot of other really viable ships will do very well in incursions but will not get you fleet invites.

Nightmares, Machariels and Vindicators will or fly a 150M logi.

i had a good time with a typhoon fitted with 800mm AC's, lots of tank and resists, and webifier drones. The drones really help. The trouble with incursions is that it takes two hours to set up a fleet and then the fleet runs two or three sites and by that time everyone is tired and cranky cause it took so long to get the fleet together so they de-fleet and go home. otherwise its fun and a isk-maker.Confused

oh, and ya, a logi. everyone wants logis, incursion fleets are begging for logis on the incursion channels.

once you get a good reputation as a pilot you get snatched out of the incursion channel into btl pub oe the diatlan channel
once you get good rep in btl or dtl then you get snatched up to the next level.
you got to prove your self but then its log in. instant fleet as long as you want it.
BUT F*&k up one time and its black list forever. back to the public channel and the fail fleets.
