Noob question - flying own race ships......

Post by Rutjosnabet Longworth »

Ok, so I am of Minmatar race but the Gallente ships look soooooo coooool!

I understand that skill training allows you to fly other race ships, but does flying Minmatar ships as a Minmatar race give me inherent ship bonuses that I don't get flying the other ships in game?? Or is is just down to piling on those skill points?

Bonuses with a ship are entirely down to skills, race gives you nothing more than a starting set of skills. (Every character has the potential to fly everything in game equally well)

I also started as Minmatar, but have seen the light and converted to mostly Gallente ships. Starting as a particular race starts you with some of that race's skills, but you can easily learn the equivalent in other race's skills. In fact if you want to fly in E-Uni's fleet ships, the suggested "Short Skill Plan" will get you knowledge in all race's ships (but not necessarily pirates, ORE, Sisters of Eve, and all those other factions' ships). Reference the "Short Skill Plan" here:
