PVE Fittings

  • This document exists as a checklist for all our new players to see if they are actually ready to go to nullsec.

    We suggest that you shouldn't go there unless you can fly any of the listed ships below with the skills attached to it.


    This article is split between different professions you can follow in nullsec, from mining to ratting (the equivalent of mission running nullsec).


    All fits named here can be found in the fitting menu under: Browser --> Hulls --> Filter: Corporation Fittings

    Kinetic Armor Compensation 3

    Long Range Targeting 3
    The Vexor is considered a good starting Ratting ship.
    Her biggest disadvantage is that she has a lower targeting
    range compared to the Arbitrator
    making it easier for her to get hit by hostile ships.
    Compared to the Arbitrator she can though carry
    3 Heavy Drones compared to the Arbitrator's 2 meaning
    you do slightly more DPS which results in you being
    able to run ratting sites faster.

    Price in RF-X7V with full fitting: ~25mil ISK

    Sites to run: Herd or smaller
    Starter Ratting Cruiser Arbitrator

    [Arbitrator, T1 Ratting Arbitrator]

    Hull Upgrades 5
    Mechanics 4
    Explosive Armor Compensation 3
    Kinetic Armor Compensation 3

    Long Range Targeting 3
    The Arbitrator compared to the Vexor has a higher
    targeting range by default and therefor is easier to
    fly as it is more unlikely that any target will even hit you.
    Since the next step up would really only be the Armageddon,
    which is a battleship costing a whopping 200mil+ it is suggested
    to, if you want to fly this ship, still focus on Gallente, too. You also have to consider that it does slightly less DPS than the Vexor as it can carry less drones in total.

    Price in RF-X7V with full fitting: ~20mil ISK

    Sites to run: Herd, Squads
    T1 Advanced Ratting Myrmidon

    [Myrmidon, T1 Ratting Myrmidon]
    Suggested skills:
    Acceleration Control 3

    Hull Upgrades 5
    Mechanics 4
    Explosive Armor Compensation 3
    Kinetic Armor Compensation 3

    Long Range Targeting 3
    The Myrmidon has multiple fits available in the Corporation Fitting list. You have the choice to choose between the (1) T1 Dual Repper version or the (2) ARMOR version. (1) The T1 Dual Repper Version is relying on it's ability to counter repair the damage that it receives while being capstable. (2) The ARMOR version uses speed and armor repair to tank and especially evade damage by staying it range which makes it more similar to the Arbitrator.

    Sites to run: Herds, Squads, (potentially) Hordes (in the ARMOR variant)

    2nd Mining

    Starting Mining Ship - Venture

    The Venture is the most basic mining vessel a
    player receives during the carreer missions.
    Although it is free it shouldn't be underestimated
    as it is for what it is a very efficient miner
    can help you make your first few dozen million ISK.

    Ore Capacity: 5.000m³
    Price: ~2mil ISK
    Mining Barge - Procurer

    The Procurer is the Mining Barge with the most tank.
    It also has a lot higher skill requirements than
    the Venture. Thanks to the bigger amount of tank it
    is able to normally not get ganked, as it survives as
    much as a battlecruiser.

    Ore Capacity: 12.000m³
    Price: ~40mil ISK



    3rd Exploration

    Starter Ship - Heron

    The Heron is the most basic exploration ship in the game.
    While many others could also be used the Heron allows for an extra mid
    slot giving it the possibility to fit an ECM scrammer, giving you the possibility
    to make a hostile lose target on you & getting away.
    The Heron is also a really cheap ship making it a nobrainer to lose it so the thrill
    of exploration is not mitigated by the risk of losing millions of ISK.

    Price: ~1mil ISK
    Advanced Ship - Astero
