... but as I'm sitting here waiting for Amarr Cruiser lvl5 to finish, I'm realizing how bad my cruiser options are.

You are NOT training Amarr Cruiser to 5 for the difference in lvl4 and lvl5. You are training Amarr Cruiser lvl5 to get into that shiny golden monster called zealot. Once you get that beauty, other t1 trash won't really matter.

Ah yes, well, goes without saying. I am (finally) training for Zealot/Sacrilege. Just, waiting so long for the skill to finish had me looking at cruisers a bit harder....rarely fly them....I use my T1 and T2 frigs, my BC's, or a BS when I feel like ratting.

I love these threads, brings out all the EFT warriors.

Anyways to answer your question there really is no best thing for anything in EVE, the question itself is flawed.

You need to know what is the best ship+fit for what you are trying to accomplish, there are ships that are more versatile (arby and most minnie ships) but there will never be a ship that is the best for any one thing, however there is a caveat... there are ships that are basically useless, ie augoror et al.

It's all about the fitting, if you can't fit an arby properly it will suck at everything. I pvp'd with it in lowsec on another toon for six months, had a ton of fun. Neuts and td's baby, but stay the hell away from missile ships, you'll die.

Yeah it is kind of ironic that the only decent Amarr cruiser is completely Un-Amarr in terms of fighting philosophy (and skill prereqs).
if you're a die hard amarr philosphy fighting style player i wouldn't even bother with the Arbitor- go straight for one of the Amarr BCs instead- far less skills spent in drones and EWAR.
 :lol:
You can't say the Amarr don't advance- in every war they find a new reason to blame the Minmatar.

Not sure if its been said before, but a it stands Amarr cruisers aint super, so why not put the time of Cruiser V in BC V and put all your gunnery skills in place in a Harbinger, a one of the best BC's with pure laser DPS and 100% Amarrian =).

If your beyond that point already then Cruiser V is worth it 100 fold for access to Amarr Recons and HACS (curse and Zealot are apparently worth every hour in training).
If you really want a cruiser hull however, and not convinced with an omen or maller (tho they can both be used very well) keeping you gunnery skills while cross training to another turret weapon type could be an option.
Personally i love the arbi, and drones skills will be of use in the majority of ships you fly, so you may as well train them early on and and make use of a great ship =)

hah, just saw how old the post was  - stupid alcohol ..

It's all already been said- Amarr are specialised, and the Arby is a Gallente ship in an amarrian skin.
As i said earlier the Harby is an awesome ship (although if you are a noob getting the ISK together for it may be tough) and the Omen is great for DPS, although as already has been stated has nooo tank.
Best advice for avoiding this delima- don't play amarr....
You can't say the Amarr don't advance- in every war they find a new reason to blame the Minmatar.

Arbitrator? Auguror? Omen?

When were these added to the game? I've never heard of them before or even seen them.
