PVP Ship Survival Guide : EVE Online General Discussions

I want/need a guide on how to set up my ship for PVP. Or even better what do I need to somewhat safely enter .04 space without worrying too much about loosing my ship. I was called a care-bare, WTF is that? What skills do I need so my warp engine wont quit running. At this point I just want to be able to get away with my ship.

The other day a player baited me, I played along because they had my exact same ship and figured I'd have a chance (Carcel). They fired first of course and took out my shields almost completely. I started firing all my missiles that did just about nothing, (heavy missiles) and released my light drones. I was able to warp away with 92% damage to my Carcel. One more hit I'd been done. As I was leaving her ship only had maybe 2% damage. All this lasted maybe 25 seconds. I felt I was like an Ibis going against a Drake.

This is what I need help with. I want to PVP, but I want to have at least some chance. Is there a way I can post my skills?

In no particular order --

#1: If you're just running courier stuff (esp. missions), use a low slot for a Warp Core Stabilizer. It's not a guarantee, but gives you a shot at not being warp scrambled.

#2: Carebear = someone who doesn't play the game to PvP. The flipside is that PvPers are power-assertive-rapist types with serious compensation issues, and couldn't stand two seconds in a [real-life] barfight. But "carebear" is such a succinct a term. *lol*

#3: Skills make a HUGE difference. I have a bit less than one year training skills up, but chances are I could gear wee Kestrel (frigate) to wail on your Caracal. But more likely, I'd bait you, and then my buddy in the CNR would drop cloak and show you a seven cruise missile barrage. ^_^

#4: Want to get into warp ASAP? Get a more agile ship, and/or train up ship agility skills (Evasive Manuevering, Spaceship Command). If you're really paranoid, gear up for agility (modules, rigs, and skill hardwire for yourself).

#5: Consider joining a PC corporation (instead of the NPC one you started the game in). Finding people who can teach you what's what, help a LOT -- and most corps do at least some PvPing. Some are hardcore, some are just *cough* "opportunistic". :)

#6: Plan on losing ships. Never fly what you can't afford to lose. I lost a Raven (normal, not CNR) to L4 rats, thanks to a drone bug (of course, CCP won't reimburse). Nearly 200M incl. the modules and rigs. Was about half my assets (I play pretty casually, and I'm not super-careful about switching skill training when the last one finishes).

Hope that helps. Oh, and EVEMon might have a way to copy skills to clipboard, but honestly, you could probably just hit the highlights (who cares if you've trained some Social skill up to level 5?)

For PvP in an rather empty area, I love using Smartbombs; they pull off an awesome AoE, just a minder; they do not discriminate, they hit everything.

Also try some armor plating, or shield boosters.
