EVE Academy – Fitting your ship

2021-09-30 - By EVE Online Team

Academic Capsuleers,

A new tutorial has been added to EVE Academy! This video will help you get started with ship fitting as a part of the Enforcer path. You can find the video below or over on the EVE Academy site itself.

EVE Academy is your guide to New Eden - a website aimed at giving new EVE Online players the best start by providing a tailored learning experience. It provides a wealth of information designed to help you decide who you want to be. Pick from Explorer, Industrialist, Enforcer (PvE) or Soldier of Fortune (PvP) to get skill plans, beginner ship fittings, and curated links to resources created by the EVE Online community.

Picking and fitting your ship for purpose is the most important way to ensure your success in an upcoming Security mission. Generally, progression from level 1 to level 4 missions will involve stepping from a Tech 1 (T1) frigate to a T1 destroyer for level 2 missions. Level 3 missions can be completed in a cruiser or battlecruiser depending on skills and fit, and level 4 typically requires a well-prepared battleship. The progression path of any faction's ships can be seen in the in-game ship tree.

You can increase your chances of success by ensuring that you fit armor or shield tank modules which improve your resists against the damage types of the specific enemy you are fighting. This information can be found in the Show Info tab of most hostile NPCs. Additionally, PvE in EVE commonly requires that you stay and fight for an extended period of time. This means that fits for missions are better suited to fitting active shield or armor repair modules - Shield Boosters and Armor Repairers. -EVE Academy, Enforcer
