Even the most basic combat ships in Eve Online are capable of running combat sites, with varying degrees of success. This section will compare a variety of ships and ship classes for PvE combat, and provide some starting points for fitting ships for this purpose.
I began with my favourite ship class, assault frigates! I'm currently in the midst of continuing to release guides for tactical destroyers, with future plans for other ship classes like cruisers...
All new players begin with the skills to fly regular frigates. Within your first few hours of play, you'll be ready to try out some of the simpler combat sites near your starting solar system!
These guides provide insight on how to fit frigates for PvE combat on your very first day in Eve Online.
These high-tech frigates feature strong damage resistances, while retaining a reasonably nimble profile. Assault frigates are particularly strong in combat sites consisting primarily of frigates or destroyers.
These guides review the ship attributes and bonuses for assault frigates, and explore fits capable of running combat sites against each pirate faction.
These highly adaptable destroyers are able to transition between defense, combat, and navigation configurations on-the-fly. Tactical destroyers are competitive in most high-security combat sites.
These guides will review the ship attributes and bonuses for each tactical destroyer, and explore fits capable of running combat sites against each pirate faction. The first video is out, with the other four on each player faction's tactical destroyer planned for production throughout the summer of 2022.
