Life in EVE has been good lately. The top highlight being I finally purchased a Rohk battleship, and it’s a beauty. Currently I have it fit with six 350mm turrets and two t2 150mm turrets. The 350mm work great vs cruiser and battleship targets, while the 150mm along with my drones take out any troublesome frigates. It also has an active shield tank, using a named xl recharger along with a recharge booster. Once my skills catch up those will be replaced with t2 fittings. Speaking of t2, I just finished training to fit a t2 tracking enhancer and two t2 magnetic field stabilizers, giving the Rohk a very decent damage boost.
Overall the Rohk laughs at all level 3 missions, easily cutting through everything without any issue in keeping its shields up. As a very nice side bonus, I recently completed a ten part storyline sequence, ‘A Case of Kidnap’ I believe, and ended up with three hardwires at the end. Since none were very useful to me, I flew over to my favorite market and checked the prices. To my surprise two of them sold for around 25 million ISK each, with the third going for 20 million; a very, very nice payout indeed. The sale of all three instantly boosted my previously decimated wallet back up, allowing my to buy the above mentioned fittings along with paying back the 25 million I owed to an Alliance mate (Thanks again RJ).
Feeling brave, I decided to accept a level 4 mission to see how the Rohk would hold up. The first one I drew ended up being nice and easy (forget the name now), so after completing it I went for another. Sadly I drew Massive Assault, one of the tougher missions in EVE. Since our Corp’s main mission runners are on break right now, I had little chance in getting that one done, so I declined and asked for another. I drew Vengeance, another very tough mission. So that’s currently sitting in the Journal, unlikely to be attempted anytime soon. No way in hell am I risking my new toy only to have it scrambled and trashed in a mission.
Lastly, my main pilot is quickly approaching 5 million skill points, and I’m looking forward to making a breakdown post once I hit that mark, should be fairly interesting. As much as I’ve tried to stick to combat skills, I have strayed once in a while into other areas, and I’m curious exactly how many points have been placed in other areas.
