October character report

Here is my character report, I hope my plans help you make yours and that your comments help me refine mine. If not, move along, nothing to see here. I try to use a simple format that can be copy-pasted and updated. First an overview table, then detailed description of characters. Unused characters are ignored.

  1. My main, Gevlon Goblin, the perfect example why one shouldn't remap before knowing what he is doing. Few days old I was so sure that I'll do manufacturing that I remapped M10-I4, just to recognize that I can't do that without hauler ships. Also I thought I'll fly logi on this very same highsec pilot, so I went P7-W7. Later when I started to get a clue, I had to learn all the ships I'll ever need to extract some value from that remap. At least I can be very sure that I won't need any more ships since I can fly freighter, cloaky hauler and Orca too. Have the P/W prequisites for a cloaky Tengu too. Now I learn Cybernetics 5 for +5 implants (which I should have done months ago).
  2. This pilot practically never leaves Hek - Boundless Creations Factory and does only trading. Finished Accounting 5, the last important trading skill, the rest can wait:
  3. As busy member of TEST, she is my first nullsec pilot. Her job is to scout for the other pilots and open cyno if needed. Whenever not in that, she is in the "gaybar", the AFK Cloaking services of TEST, providing entertainment to ratters. They used to mock the little girl. Since they lost a 6B Thanatos, they run like roaches when she arrives.
  4. She trades in Amarr and I was considering closing this account and move the characters away as there is nothing to learn for the 3 traders. Luckily I didn't. She got new jobs. At first a cloaky frig to scout the always camped highsec-nullsec routes and to do reseach on blueprints:
  5. She trades in Dodixie and practically does nothing else. Training is more or less complete:
  6. She trades in Rens and has a few planets. They aren't much of an income (about 0.35B/month), rather a hobby:
  7. Titania Goblin is a regular fleet member of HoneyBadger Coalition fleets. She is flying Scimitar and Guardian with Logi 5, sticking to the "only stratops, no roams" oath. She is escorting Foxcats whenever RL let me guide her. She trains now for a triage Nidhoggur.
  8. While I'll fly in null, I won't stop being an industrialist there. So my Rorqual alt has born. Still in newbie phase, but support skills are complete, now learning Mining Director and Wing command to be able to boost a mining fleet. Finally he'll remap P-W for my ships: the Rorqual, a freighter and a jump freighter. It will followed by industrial skills, needed to compress ore.
  9. This pilot has long way before flying anything but a shuttle. Still months in Int/Mem and Int/Perc support skills. Then leadership skills. A lot. That will take some time. But at the end, I'll have a fleet booster Ragnarok for sig-tanking fleets. Don't even try to talk out of it! One must have wild dreams.
  10. To experiment with Character Bazaar, I started training a Nyx pilot. We'll see how much profit this sale will provide. Still in support skill phase:
  11. He also started out as titan pilot, but my "20B/month" combined with the decreased income because of FW limited my budget to one titan. So I'll have a structure shooting Moros. One day. Now I haven't even finished support skills:
  12. On the top of my own accounts, I give a PLEX a month to my girlfriend, as it would be stupid to pay for it with real money. She is still extremely casual, but now that I fly fleets and she sees it on my screen, she gets more and more interested. Bought Amarr frig, cruiser, battleship books with a meaningful smile. She is also interested in flying ECM which she already has Caldari BS 5. Anyway, probably this is the only character on this page that looks what a usual EVE pilot looks like:

Friday morning report: 169.1B (5.5 spent on main accounts, 6.5 spent on Logi/Carrier, 3.2 on Ragnarok, 2.7 on Rorqual, 2.8 on Nyx, 2.8 on Dread, 37.4 sent as gift)

Ugh, some bad ship choices there:

Triage Nidhoggur -> you are soooo much better with Archon!
Structure shooting Phoenix - Moros has much more DPS, can also blap battleships, and doesn't look that ugly.

Nidhoggur: can rep both shield and armor, has bonus to both reps. After I have Nid, I'll get probably all other carriers, this pilot will be pure logi.

Phoneix: this post was pre-made, I had a long discussion about it on corp jabber, as soon as I finished EFT-check and some more reading, Moros switch is probable.

Gevlon said...

EFT complete. Moros it is.

Nidhoggurs are great for PvE, not so much for PVP where the archon is much better.

Ask some triage carrier pilots for foxcats what they suggest, I suspect it'll be the archon.

Gevlon said...

Did and they answered: "if you want to fly with us, fly Archon, if you want to rep POS (laughter) fly Nid."

When I said I want to rep POS, they told it's the best troll ever.

I'll learn an Archon second though and I have one more reason for Nid: I'm hoping for Rokhfleets will get the same triage support as Foxcats.
