The traditional day-two upgrade

Recommended Posts

Traditionally the first upgrade a DPS pilot gets is a mid-grade microwarp drive. A better MWD gives you about 25%-40% more cap life, and most of the "pretty good" units cost less than 150m... you can afford these after only a couple of hours in fleet. A Hyperion or Rokh using the Compact or QuadLiF MWD's cannot keep up with the fleet, and even a Vindicator has major troubles burning out to targets as they should.

Here's a table showing the cap life of various MWD types in a Vindi. I’ve sorted it by “both shooting AND running”, because that’s what you need to do in fleet. See that big difference in cap life between the Quad LiF and the Gist C-type? Get on the good side of that gap. Head over to Amarr, go down this list, pick up the biggest thing that fits your budget. If you're still doing these in a month or two you can come back, resell the one you got today, and pick up a Core X-type.

We actually now prefer pilots hold off and go straight from the lower end ones right into the big boys (core x etc tho faction are still accepted obviously ). 

The reason for that is, to save the line pilots isk and to encourage people to go all in. That is why they have been removed from the fitting website.

If you want to go budget, then go Quadlif -> Gist-X . Anything less is just money out of window. In a fast fleet you can easily get the ISK for a Gist-X in less than 2 hours. Why waste for anything else ? 

Eventually you are going to probably buy the Core-X anyway, no matter how pricy it is. Probably.
