That got in the way when I decided to undock and get the new Command Destroyer skill book. I pried myself from the warm seat I had made in Jita and after much whining, was directed to a skill book store. Such was my glorious undocking into the wilderness of the Jita undock.
Shuttles are very cool. They are cheap and they are fast. But, in Jita they are also targets. I find myself feeling rather stupid that I want to fly around in a shuttle. Someone can pop it just for the hope that I've stuffed my cargo full of goodies at not great loss to themselves.
I docked up. Then Eve crashed. Then it came back up. I sniffed about the corners of my Jita hangar and pulled back the dust cloth on Ecstatic Cider. Ecstatic cider is an Orthrus that was gifted to me to lure me into trying out missiles. I don't deserve such a sweet gift and to show my thanks for it, I learned missiles. I never flew it.
Today is the day. I might not do anything with it but I had learned missile skills for this moment.
My completely technical method of what ships I do and don't like is done by an puttering around and seeing how it handles. I spun off the undock and wheeled around the arch under the station. The Orthrus is responsive and smooth with enough speed not to leave me grinding my teeth.
The only question is will I like missile combat. Everything I have read about missiles makes them sound exhausting and unfun. I like going, "Weeeeeee!!" as I shoot things. Maybe I've listneed to to many endless, circular arguments about stuff and missiles will be fun.
