Okay, so I'm stuck in a situation, one which I bet many have been stuck in.

This is a LONG ASS post, had even an introduction, but I scrapped that, so more to the point.

I've 3.3 million SP (not much I know...about a months play time) I fly a domi BS, not the best fit but not the worst. Now, not a great deal of SP is set to the BS (yet!!) since I trained a lot of stuff just to try it out to see what I want to do (PI, Mining, different ships etc etc etc).

I'm doing level 3 missions (extremely easily for that matter) and I have very little money. Last night I did a 10 part storyline mission (The kidnapping or something) and got a small sum of isk with it, the last part of the mission had something like 30 ships including 10 battleships. I took them all out, according to eve survival they had web/scrams so I made sure I got them before they got close. However, my DPS seemed to be quite bad, I tanked fine (after 5 battleships I had to warp away to get more ammo, did not know it would be that long :p) but it felt (felt being the key word here..I don't know) like 10-15 minutes per battleship (they were nightmares (the ship, not to do) with 1.2mil reward each)

Now, my problem is, level 3's are easy, my money doesn't go up very fast (got a noctis to salvage, and always do) and before last night I had 30 mil ISK, which seems to never really get past that (buying command centers, smaller ships to test out for fun and to go do level 1 missions to get my standing back with amarr) and I assume I am ready for level 4's now. The problem is, I feel I have come to a stand still...I can do one or two long missions before I log off, though want to come back again 5m later, but put of by the fact I got another 1.5 hour mission (including salvaging etc) to make a couple of million..if that.

I don't know what else to do. I want my DPS to be better and I'm working on it, tonight I should have sentry drones trained but telling me what skills to train is pointless because everyone has been doing just that ..but all to different things. People don't seem to realise you need to train skills to get skills, and atm, I am training as much in drones as I can, I want to try and get T2 as soon as possible...but I also need to do guns...and also this, and that etc etc etc, so it's coming, but it takes time, and yes, I know I need to be patient, but I don't know what I can do in between the few months it's going to take me to train. (I currently trained for a rattlesnake, knowing I won't have the skills to use it but hoping by the time I've raised the ISK to get one, I will....however, at 550m isk, doing level 3's or if a level 4 will take as long as it did last night for the storyline, it's going to take me a long long time to be able to buy that ship, and even then, I don't want to fly it until I can afford to lose it.

My main END goal is to have fun doing PvP, but I need lots of cash for that...

so what can I do? I'm really stuck. I love eve so much but I don't want to be stuck doing level 3's (possibly 4's but taking ages at a time) to earn a small amount of ISK for months.

I've not sold anything yet, I've horded, but for another goal of getting my R&D up and refining etc etc. I've got 4 PI's up and running and as of today for some advanced commodity (but will be a week or two until I get a decent amount of product I guess) so I won't sell until I can sell it without losing a lot.

I can't do mining because my skills aren't high enough, I can fly a procurer or whatever it's called, but sure...train for the next ship? Yeah...I'm training! as much as I can as fast as I can..but that's my point, it will be months before I can do...anything that brings in an income.

Help! I'm lonely and don't know what to do :( I don't mind working for my isk, but I don't know HOW to work for it, without it being TOO easy or TOO long for small payout.

I'm not in a corp, I need to wait with getting one until I can commit.

Congratulations, EVE has warped your brain into working for the game. I suggest you walk away and never play this game again.


Not going to happen.

If PvP is your main goal in game, focus all SP traning into that. Do not waste time putting skills into mining, production, etc.

Join a PvP focused corp.

Train/buy an interceptor. You can fly a nicely fitted interceptor for under 15M, and when you die, it hasn't cost you much. If you want to fly even cheaper, get a Rifter.

You will die a lot, but learn PvP quickly.

This is all well and good, but training for a good fit is going to take months is it not?

So, my question still stands (since the replies so far are "train for it" which I covered)

what to do while waiting? Being stuck on level 3's that are too easy earning nothing, or level 4's taking a while for not much gain.

go buy some gtc's for cash, convert to plex, sell for isk, then go buy a toon.

or use t2 sentrys and afk mission like every other domi pilot.

Since your issue seems to be the time spent training your character, and your lack of desire to do so, I suggest visit the Character Bazaar here on EVE Forums, and purchase a character.

There's plenty of clueless vets out there also. You having a dimwitted reply such as quit, is one I won't be following.

As for the other replies, there isn't any advice there if I covered it in my opening post now is there.

That's one way of doing it I suppose, but I'd rather have my own character. Sentries are being trained atm, as I said, so t2 will be a while off.

My issue isn't with the time training my character, or lack of desire to do so. As I said, I'm already training. My issue is, what to do in the meantime.

Play the game. Have fun. Learn.

You are a very new character. You have no idea how many things there are to do.

You say you are lonely, but you don't want to join a corp. You don't have to listen to me, but I'm telling you, the best times you will have in the game are while you are out PvPing with your friends.

"You have no idea how many things there are to do."

Which, is exactly what I am asking, yet since I am already training for things that's going to take months, training is out of the question.

And as for the corp, I already said, I don't want to join one until I can commit. I can't commit without any training. I actually want to be worthwhile, and I don't want to hop around corps either. When I find one, I want to stay in it.

Pirate. Explore. Hack sites. Courier contracts. Mine. Explore a wormhole. Do missions. Do an epic arc. Scam in Jita. Kill rats for bounty. Try and make some ISK off the market.

Those are just a few. Go play.

Screw that. Just join one. And no, you don't have to train to commit unless the corp is utterly worthless, in which case you'll end up quitting it anyway.

I have also been playing for one month and the general feeling I get from other noobs is that the are always in a rush or waiting for skill 'x' to complete so they can do 'y'. Sure its great when you get another string for your bow but if you are not having fun on the way up, you wont be having fun at the top.

Please just listen to all the vets who have already answered your question. If you are going to come and ask a question but refuse to listen to the most frequent and most obvious answer, then you have simply wasted your time.

JOIN A CORP. This is the answer you seek. When you are playing with people who share a goal, you will have the most fun possible in the game. Find people you enjoy bull****ting with, and be in a corp. Their advice will help you set your training paths, and you will enter pvp much faster. Now, go find people to play with or else continue to play solo and ***** and moan about how boring it is.

Ah yes, the rookie domi, I remember myself... well, waiting. Care to post your fit?

No, you really don't. A fully t2 fit rifter is less than 5m, and any frig can kill a t2 cruiser -- that part just requires experience. Don't fall into the trap of making PVP an end goal. If you go down that road, one day you'll find yourself in a Mach/Golem/FOTM ship while playing the most boring part of the game (i.e. pve) and just getting that one last skill to lvl5 while getting that one more bil isk before you pvp until you quit playing.

Pvping doesn't mean that you need to bust the nearest 0.0 gatecamp either. If you're worried about your isk, then hopping into an incursus and can tipping some miners is a fairly low-risk alternative for learning the very basics about pvp (or, if you're the knight in shining armor type, bait can flippers).

And while you wait for sentries 5, and large hybrid 5, and gal bs 5 and all that other crap, try ninja salvaging and scamming. And grab your incursus, head into lowsec, and start shooting at someone Cool

Don't salvage level threes, it's a waste of time. Your DPS is probably bad because you're shooting mostly at cruisers in level threes. How is your Domi fit?

As for alternatives: get a battlecruiser and rat, run anomalies, blitz level 4s as much as possible for LP and sell the rewards if time is an issue(you don't need to kill everything in every mission), trade, scam people, ninja salvage, exploration, gank mission runners...

You should have no problem pulling in (at the least) 10-15mil wallet ticks every twenty minutes with your SP simply through belt ratting or anomalies alone.

Find one anyway. You do not need to wait. Don't just **** around waiting to be able to play the game on your own, because you will become very bored and miss out on what really makes the game engrossing. If you're worried about 'committing', join something like EVE University which pretty much exists solely to help players like you.

This is all well and good, but training for a good fit is going to take months is it not?

So, my question still stands (since the replies so far are "train for it" which I covered)




If you fit a frigate with a hacking module (I think the sansha hacking thing) you can go hack the sites in Override Transfer Arrays while people are clearing the site. They will probably donate isk to you (I've been in fleets before that do this) if you are continually hacking the sites for people. I bet you could make 10 mil every 20 minutes or so doing that. We were donating 1mil per pilot to one guy that just flew in and hacked all our OTAs. I even threw him a 20 mil tip :P

You could potentially be up to snuff for a decent meta 4 fit enough to run incursions (with t2 guns or something) in a couple weeks.

The only thing you need to pvp is

a frigate
a scrambler
some balls

anyone that tells you otherwise is an idiot.

You may think this is oversimplifying it but honestly, most of what people will tell you is bad bad advice that suggests you need 10m sp minimum, so and so isk minimum etc.

If you can afford to fit out a rifter you are good to go.

Obviously with experience and a few (and I really mean a FEW) skillpoints you will have a better chance but 90% of PVP skill comes from knowledge and guts.

As for your PVE Dominix it's fairly simple. Put enough skillpoints into tanking so that you can survive the basic spawn groups in a mission then work on drone dps, railguns, and general fitting. A battleship REALLY isn't something you should expect to fly brilliantly with only 3m skillpoints. Not that you can't (like I said people try to put you off untill you have skillpoints at a certain level). Just be aware you are not flying the ship optimally and be very careful rushing into level 4's until you can at least tank most ships on the field at any time. If you can tank it, it's only a matter of tanking the field till you can kill them Cool

I love to solo everything I do but you can have a FAR easier time if you fleet up with some other people to go pvp with. Start with being a simple tackler and go from there.

Might I suggest moving out to NPC 0.0? (Either with a small corp, a few friends, or solo?)

This will both give you some PVP experience, while allowing you to kill rats which brings in a fair bit more isk than L3s. You can be pulling in 15mil/hr at least, and that's assuming you're using a t1 cruiser. Once you get a high DPS BC or BS you can up that to 30mil/hr.

That's what I did, and it worked fairly well. I wouldn't reccommend going down until you can afford a replacement ship or two, though.

Probably the best reply, thanks..there is one little thing :p I'm scared of losing my implants (not lost any ship to a player yet so not quite sure how it works with being podded) so I've trained for a jump clone, just need that 8.0 standing :p Or is it easy to just run off in a pod? :p

How can I link my fit? Anyway, it's just drones (hammers, hobs and ogres, soon sentries) 5 rails (decent dmg, 70km) in mid slots I got a tracking/damage mod for my drones and some cap rechargers, rigs I have 1 sentry drone rig increasing damage (was already in it but I kept it) and 2 cap recharging rigs) and in low slots my armour hardners and repairer and weapon mod increasing tracking/damage. Currently maxed out on the PG, I needed a 1% implant to get the last mod on :p

I actually found salvaging level 3's to give me the most income from doing them. Much more than the rewards. Did not think of blitzing 4s, that's a great idea for the LP points.

Not into scamming :p

and I don't have low DPS for 3's, I basically 1 shot the ships in them...thus my point of them being too easy, but I don't come across many battleships in 3's...certainly not a group of 10, but the group of 10 in the storyline, while easy, took forever to kill..which is what put me off 4's.

I did ask about hacking before but had no replies really. I'm not to sure on the mechanics of it (did the tutorial a year ago but had to quit for RL reasons a week after I subbed) though that does sound interesting, I think I'll look closer into it, not sure how capable my skills are in it though, but I have a few.

So yeah, I will train for a rifter I think, I did screw around with a slasher for giggles so I could raise my standing with a faction I went below -2 with so I have to do level 1's for them, it was real fun forcing 1400 MS out of it and a couple of high tracking low range autocannons on it. I really love the whole fast flying and a frigate is more my thing..

Only reason I have the domi is because someone gave it to me (didn't ask! Never ask for things but people are nice in Eve it seems...some) so I just used it for 3's instead of my myrm and it did them much quicker. Like I said, I tanked the 10 nightmare battleships just fine in the 10-part storyline, which made me think I can do 4's (I pulled group by group taking out frigs first etc) but I'm not sure sticking with the domi is for me, it's just to last while I train for better.

That's a pretty decent guide thanks.

Maybe, I haven't left 0.5 yet since people in help channel say I need 1000 bil SP. Atm, I guess I earn around 20-30mil every 3 hours doing level 3's (having a couple decent drops rather than straight rewards) but I spend half of that every 3 hours also :p

Not worried about losing cheap ships I don't think. Don't want to lose my BS until I can afford a new one.

Embarassed cheers. That part is easy: when you find yourself heading into structure fast, align to a celestial (planet/belt/station/gate) and spam the warp button. By spamming, I mean spamming: click as fast as you can until your finger bleeds, your hand falls off and your mouse breaks apart (or you see the warp effect. you can stop clicking at that point as well). You're pretty much guaranteed (pretty much because technically you could still die to lag, a smartbomb, or an instalocking trasher) to warp as soon as your ship explodes around you. However, that won't help you when you're in 0.0 and bubbled; it's a good idea to get a jumpclone before you head out there. I don't know if it's still around, but the Estrel Arador corp provided access to those free of charge last time i needed one.

How can I link my fit? Anyway, it's just drones (hammers, hobs and ogres, soon sentries) 5 rails (decent dmg, 70km) in mid slots I got a tracking/damage mod for my drones and some cap rechargers, rigs I have 1 sentry drone rig increasing damage (was already in it but I kept it) and 2 cap recharging rigs) and in low slots my armour hardners and repairer and weapon mod increasing tracking/damage. Currently maxed out on the PG, I needed a 1% implant to get the last mod on :p


You can't link it. Plugging it into EFT and pasting that is the usual way. Guns are already a good sign. Sentries will make it much, much faster. A decent fit to aim for is this one.

I didnt know rifters were prime ships until recently, sadly I trained all frigates bar mim ones.


Minmatar has been FOTM for... iono, years now :) but that doesn't mean that, say, an incursus or tristan isn't a viable ship in pvp (it is).

go buy some gtc's for cash, convert to plex, sell for isk, then go buy a toon.

or use t2 sentrys and afk mission like every other domi pilot.


That's one way of doing it I suppose, but I'd rather have my own character. Sentries are being trained atm, as I said, so t2 will be a while off.

Since your issue seems to be the time spent training your character, and your lack of desire to do so, I suggest visit the Character Bazaar here on EVE Forums, and purchase a character.


My issue isn't with the time training my character, or lack of desire to do so. As I said, I'm already training. My issue is, what to do in the meantime.

It's usually best to ignore idiots.

Here is a video I made after about a month in game. I never made it public since it's just high sec 1v1's but I think it shows how a 'noob' can still kick some butt :P

Mind you. I think Chribba is having trouble with his hosting so you might not be able to download it at this time. Its just me in a bunch of incursus and maulus (lol) killing other stuff.
