Basically there are 3 different ways of local tanking:
  • Buffer (mix of pure HP + resists)
  • Active (shield booster / armour repair)
  • Passive Regen (shield regeneration, no armour equivilant)
Additionally you can use logi (or spider tank) to provide Remote Repair (usually combined with a high resist buffer tank), which is what you will see being used in incursion fleets.

For solo missioning and combat sites, Active tank is the most common, as the damage profile from the NPCs is low but substained damage (Passive Regen can also be used, but depends on the ship).

For group missions (incursions and sleeper sites), Remote Repair is most common form of tanking

For PVP you will usually either see Buffer or Remote Repair, this is because you are looking at high burst damage, usually over a much shorted time scale than missions. The only real exception for PVP is solo. where you may see Active tank, usually in the form of an Ancillary Shield Booster or Ancillary Armour Repairer.

Good info, thanks.

Alright, I've gotten some good pointers in this thread. Thanks!

Re: Newbro looking into Bursting

Maybe I can make this simpler- "Dude, get a Sleipner and start training to minimum fits to qualify to boost and Incursion fleet."

https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Preparin ... d_boosters

Now to be serious, you'll probably want to train cybernetics to V to get the +5 learning implants and buy lots of skill injectors because it'll take on the order of six months of training to get there. It hurts. So... here is the question-

How does one make the isk to say "Sliepner? Sure. How many should I buy? I mean, it looks like one of the best ships in the game."

This brings me to the core question: One has three characters on an Eve account. What is the best way to manage that, given the limitations of being a Unista?

1. I wish I had known this the second I started training for Incursions: Buy a multiple pilot training license and train your Incursion Pilot on that account. Picket and Scout as much as you can and you can subsidize that MPTL from your incursion monies, sometimes with enough left over for some skill injectors once in a while.

2. I guess you need to do that again for the 3rd character, which is your hauler alt/Orca pilot. If you want to live "on the road", an Orca is like a mobile hanger/ammo dump/armory and hey, it can carry ore too.

3. I never planned on being a pew-pew shoot stuff Eve player, and now I can do that and lots of times it's fun. I still think of myself as an "exploration" pilot although I got sidetracked with learning to be a battleship pilot, PvE FC, PvE Logistics and sometimes Ice Mining and.. oh yeah, I keep thinking about wormhole things but am busy and.. lately this low sec thing seems fun because now instead of simply exploring stealthily, sometimes it's actually me that is the scariest thing in the system. You never know what's fun until you try it.

Bottom line... when you get tired of being poor.. you know where we are. Nothing opens doors like a sack full of ISK.

What limitations?

While yes, remember that an Orca can't haul battleships in it's fleet hangar due to a lack of space.

True, but be careful about your injector addiction. Drains wallets and kills pilots.
