What Drones to use?

I'm doing Minmatar missions mainly fighting Angels.

What drones should I use? Hobgoblins, Hammerheads, Wardens and Ogres?

Or should I use explosive damage drones?

I'm training Gallente Drones.

That would mean I would have to train all those drone specializations. I've only trained some Gallente Drone Specialization.

getting all 4 specs to lvl 4 doesn't take long if you have proper learning skills... 4 or better across all 11 learning skills.

TBH i wouldnt bother using the Amarr ones, even Em damage against Em weak npcs still does less damage than Gallente resisted damage, because the damage modifiers on Amarr drones are lower.

I just use Gallente vs everything (PVE) - even resisted they do more damage against most NPCs. Angels actually being the exception, iirc - Minmatar drones should be better for them.

Gallente all the way. Even against enemies that are strong against their damage type they still do decently because thye have the highest damage multiplier of all drones.

Angels are weak against explosive and kinetic damage types. So use Minny drones.

For PvP I generally use Gallente drones for dps or Minmatar drones for taking on small fast stuff.

I've trained/am training all race specialisations tho to give me more flexibility. I switch drones to specific damage types depending on which NPC are in missions, just like I do with my tank. So for Angel Cartel I'd use Minmatar drones and an Exp/Kin tank.

Train for ECM drones too, that skill gives a control range boost for all drone types. While in PvP, ECM drones have saved my Myrmidon on a few occasions now also.

I don't know what race of ships your trained for but for myself drone skills are important for Gallente ships, especially my Dominix mission boat.
