Frigate Shenanigans

To be honest with you, I’m not much of a PVP’er. I went right into Capital ships and trading to grow my wallet. Now I’ve got the urge to go fly around and blow things up.

I went through some of the popular fits on Battleclinic for the following ships and bought up some items.

  • Caldari Navy Hookbill
  • Federation Navy Comet
  • Imperial Navy Slicer
  • Republic Fleet Firetail
  • Rifter

I know you may argue that Rockets are broken so the Navy ships are useless, but I’m more about the adventure on this experiment than actually looking to win 100% of the time.

I will of course post any stories about ridiculous kills and my adventure into PVP. Feel free to post any of your favorite Frigate ships setups! PEW PEW PEW!

    From what I understand, Rockets were fixed recently. I have a couple corp members who now use them in PVP.

      That’s what I came here to post as well. Pretty sure we already got this and I hear that they’re awesome fun.

    You can use Dramiel if you wish to begin with a frigate 🙂

    The Firetail is great fun. Only thing with frigates is you have to fly them to their strengths and everything happens very fast. Frigate PVP is the closest Eve has to a “twitch” gaming mechanic.

    Where abouts you flying in lowsec? I wanna keep an eye out for you.

    Get a Dramiel, one Frig to rule them all :p

    Works well enough. Can munch through Jag, anyone stupid enough to fly a Moa, Rifters are for appetizers. Dramiels can be a bit tough, if they can get out of scram ranges you are royally screwed.

    I would be interested to know how you made isk with capital ships? I’ve been reading about them of late and they appear to be mainly useful for PvP from what I’ve read so far?
