does it have PVE content? quests, npc's, normal mmorpg type stuff?

Short answer, yes.

Long(er) answer, yes. It has a rather large amount of pve content, however it's the pvp that's the real driving force.

Missions are your basic quests, but there are also things such as exploration, DED sites and incursions which are all pve focused (disregarding low- and nullsec versions of these).

In other news, they're boosting "basic" AI soon(tm), such that the pve content is more engaging.

Quests are basic kill these, fetch these, deliver these, PVE-combat is click orbit, hit F1-F4 and go cook some potatoes.

 

I've heard alot of good things about EVE "endgame" corp stuff, pvp etc, but i just couldn't make it past 2 month mark... just way too boring and tedious in general to my flavour.

My pvp experiences were: trying to go exploring / mining = gatecamped and blown to bits (and this wasn't even 0.0)

 

and yes, i was in a corp that did pvp and stuff, i was just way too gimp to help out (you need to plan your skills like a month ahead if you want to be viable "quickly" )

Joining a corp is a must! unless you want to be a high-sec miner (which no-one should be :D)

Would help out a bit if you'd give a little bit of you MMO history, likes and dislikes.

A better question would be what isnt' there to do.

You trade (buy low sell high), fufill contracts, offer a transport service, mine, PVE, explore, invent, create(crafting I guess), and basically whatever you can do in most other MMOs and more.

Exciting PvE content?  No, maybe high end wormhole excursions where you need a corp for an operation to do it in.

EVE is a PvP driven and focused game.

I like getting the pvp crowd huffing and puffing about having a pve only server?

Oh i forgot if you work at foggy bottom applying to Goonswarm might be another hobby for now.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Yes it is good to plan out  yoru skills months ahead... but to say you're to gimp to PVP is udder bull and if your corp told you this, then they just don't know what they are talking about...

Straight out of the box new players can be helpful in like a day or 2 flat. Everybody needs tacklers. They are a must. and you can get a decent tackler frig in 2 days at most.

The best example of this would be the alliance named Goonswarm back when they just started... bunch of "noobs and gimps" a lot of straight out of the box characters in Frigates, and they took on the biggest powerhouse (Band of Brothers) in EVE at the time and eventually won. (There is way more to this story and very simple generalization of it all would take a book to tell you the whole thing)

Tackler frigs, so much fun...

My previous post still stands.

 

Giving potential players false hope is imo, sad.

The only luck I had today was to have you as my opponent.

I pvp maybe once or twice a month...

 

I like mining, building stuff and selling it.

 

The pvp'ers can smash their toys against one another...I'll make new toys and sell them for proffit.

 

Sometimes I feel like fighing, most often I prefer not to. It's amazing how relaxing it can be to sit there listening to music and maneuvering your exhumer through the belt.

It has PVE content, but most of it is easily the worst you'll see in any MMO.

That's not even to knock Eve per se -- there are plenty of reasons to knock Eve, IMO, but this isn't one of them -- it's just that PvE not only isn't the game's focus, it's an afterthought at absolute best.

There sure is alot more to do other then pvp. I hve been living in a class 4 wormhole for 6 1/2 months now just making money. I do occasionally have to fight off a few random players that happen to find the entrance to my worm hole every now and then. I have about 8 bill in my tengu right now and saving some moneys for a new ship for my alt. 

I love my worm hole!

what does 'livining in a class 4 wormhole" mean? what do you do there? how are you making money? what kind of things can/do you create that people buy?

so try a dps frig instead, and your previous post.. rubbish,  level 3 skills take at most a few hours to learn, and i've never been in a pvp corp yet that didnt rely on having a whole bunch of people in frigs to help tackle, scout, the one thing the game does need though, and which some find hard to accept because its in short supply, is intelligence, and imagination. those are your most limiting factors.

Living in a class 4 wormhole means, that you're living in a solar-system that is not listed on the map. People need to find these systems by exploriation and scanning them down.

In those systems you find valuable PvE-content, however you need to build your own infrastucture to make good use of it. You basically need to build yor own home-base in there, where you can craft some stuff that's needed.

The things you can create from doing the PvE-content in these wormholes are T3-parts/ships and these sell very well.

Be careful tho, as you can aswell be ganked in these wormholes and see your hard work being destroyed. However it's actually the most rewarding thing to do in EvE, when you're interested in PvE.
