I’ve not written about Jugji in a while as he’s not had much on the go but about a week ago I moved him out into Null-Sec so that when things are slow on Kalam I can grab him and run some missions for the Archangels Corporation – I stick on comms and our chat service while doing this so I don’t miss any pings and can bail pretty quickly if necessary.

Right now Jugji is grinding Level 1 Security and Story Line missions slowly working his way towards hopefully running some Level 3 Security missions which are likely the max he’ll be able to handle with his skills. For the Level 1 missions he is running an AC Thrasher and it chews through them quickly. I’m going to give an Arty Thrasher a go too and I’m currently doing some research to see if I can find him a decent boat he can use to run the Level 3 missions with – he can fly all the T1 Cruisers and use all the T1 Medium Weapon Systems so it’s just a matter of seeing which would be the best to use. I’m not overly concerned with time efficiency I just want him to be able to grind through them for the Standing and LP – maybe at some point way down the line I can have him set up to run Level 5 missions for the Archangels.

 I’ve not yet tried the Arty Thrasher but I’m assuming it will run the Level 1 missions just as well as the AC version – maybe even a little faster as you’ll not have to close range on as many targets. They are fairly inexpensive, both fits costing less than 10mil ISK fully fitted with ammo, so even if I lose a few it’s all good. I’m working on some Cruiser fits trying to find something that Jugji can fly for the Level 3 missions, his skills are not that solid so we’ll have to see if there’s one that will work?

I’ve not done much with Jugji for a bit. I use him now and then to get some stuff from Jita when needed but other than that he’s been pretty dormant. Recently revisited the thought of getting him into a FW Corp and sent in an application to join Kill Them With Kindness.

Got a reply back pretty quick asking for some API stuff and have sent a reply to that, just waiting now to hear what they think about the proposed API info I’d be willing to send them.

I’m hopeful they’ll accept but we’ll see how things go? It would be fun to get in on some FW action with a crew.

Jugji is nearing the end of his current Pilot License Extension for Dual Character Training. I think he’s got around a week left on it and I’m not sure if I’ll add any more time to it. When it finishes he’ll be sitting at just under 6 million skill points and with his current skills he can fly any T1 Frigate or Destroyer and fit them with a T2 weapon systems and can fly any T1 Cruiser and fit them with a T1 weapon systems.

My original thought was to get him into Factional Warfare but I’m not totally sold on that, he’s not likely to get a huge amount of play time so I don’t know how beneficial that would be – I do like the idea of getting some FW Loyalty Points but going at FW solo is pretty burly and time consuming. Joining a FW Corp is an option but finding one that would welcome an alt has proven to be easier said than done… he may end up just being used as a tool for eyes or as an out of Alliance alt to move stuff around – we will just have to see how things play out???

I’ve been back into EVE for awhile now and can’t really claim to be a neophyte any longer but there are definitely some areas of the game that I’m seriously lacking knowledge on… Factional Warfare being on the top of that list!

I have an Alt (doesn’t everyone???) that I’m thinking of enlisting into Factional Warfare but don’t know where to begin? I started this Alt with the 20 days of training we got at Christmas and have added some extra time on top of that. He’s very Frigate’centric, has all Racial Frigates to IV at the moment and is working towards all the T2 weapon systems and some support skills currently.

There are a number of resources out there for Factional Warfare:

And it’s all good information but it doesn’t answer everything… the things I’m curious about:

  1. Is there a ‘better’ militia to join?
  2. Since he’s an Alt do I join solo or try to find a Corp that is already involved in FW?
  3. Will a FW Corp welcome an Alt, I’ll definitely only be playing him when there’s not something going on with Kalam.
  4. Is a Frigate specialist enough for FW’ing or do I need to add some Destroyer/Cruiser level of ships as well?

I created an EVEBoard sheet for this Alt “Jugji Meng“, if you get a chance take a look at what he’s got trained and is currently training, appreciate any thoughts or feedback!
