If you want the calm and collected profession then you should consider beeing a scientist or a newsrunner. Transporting is not calm with deadlines to meet, and not collected with pirates lurking about.
However, it is a good way to get some coin, or UEC, for that new shirt they have on sale. Or mabye even a new ship? With countless of options for ships – as a transporter, you decide. You can go all in with the new HULL series made for mass transport and poor fighting capabilities, you can be sure you’ll get that new shirt in no time! As long as you dont meet any pirates or trouble along the route.
But if you also want to feel safe and capable for a hostile situation there’s the Freelancer. A versatile ship capable of almost anything. This will get the job done safe and sound, sacrificing cargo space for more agility and firepower. You’ll carry less cargo, but get the cargo safe to the destination.
Cargo is one of the most capable job, with almost all ships able to carry some cargo. Its a good way to kickstart your career to something bigger in the future.
That’s right! If you prefer to be a savage, plunder others for their loot, hard work and hard earned cash – even ships – there’s no stopping you!
Well… There is. If you don’t like the police force breathing down your neck, or private military or even mercenaries. Might I suggest another profession?
Or, if you are the thrill-seeking kind who like high risk and high reward, this might be the profession for you.
The well known blackmarket ship called Cutlass Black, is well known as a pirate ship. Its multi-crew purpose serves you and your friends well in attempts to siege other ships, stealing their cargo or ship, with plenty of room for you and your (bearded?) friends. A top mounted turret and a co-pilot seat for easy shield, power and weapon management. The cutlass is the way to go for a medium sized crew of pirates.
As you take on jobs, you can always decide what your main profession will be. Or you can just go for one profession altogether.
Mercenary is a job best suited in a group, but could also be done alone. With specified roles for ships aswell, this is exceptionally good if you have the right ship and crew.
With a ship like the Redeemer, and your best mates – what could go wrong? You set the rules, pick the jobs and plan the tactics.
