Taking the Plunge...

...yep, I finally just got tired of waiting and just did it: Last night, I bought my Myrmidon.

That's all I've done so far, mind you. After buying the ship, I have a little more than 7 million ISK left, so I'm currently deciding whether to purchase a full fitting of guns and other modules for the Myrmidon from scratch or to strip my Thorax of all that expensive ordinance I have in there and use it to hopefully help me to conserve enough of that 7 mil to buy the best stuff I can run in all those extra slots I now have to play with. Of course, there's always the other option, which is to just keep running missions in the Thorax as I slowly but surely fit my Myrmidon the way I want it, piece by piece.

I'm really not sure what I'm going to do here. I haven't even logged in yet today, mainly because I know that in order to get anything done I need to decide what I'm doing next...and y'know, I just realized that I never bothered to check and see how much it's going to cost to insure this thing. Hmmm...maybe some more Thorax mission running is in order before the Myrmidon sees space? Clearly, I have more research to do.

congrats on your new and shiny purchase! it's definitely an awesome ship, both for pvp and pve.

if you want a cheap and cheerful myrmidon setup that will still OMGWTFBBQPWNZOR, try the following:

highs - drone link augmentor, tractor beam, some 200mm rails (however many you can fit)

meds - 10mn afterburner, 4 cap rechargers

lows - 2 medium armour reppers, 4 rat specific active hardeners (swap depending on mission)

drones - 4 heavies, 5 lights

as for not being around much, i know how you feel - i've been away all week on a project, but that's the great thing about eve, i know my character is still progressing without me, working on medium hybrid V. it's cool knowing that you're not somehow "losing time" by not logging for a while.
