I lost myself in EVE skill land last night for a bit, with EVE Mon sitting open on the desktop as I alt-tab’d in and out of the Level 4 mission I was helping with. In some ways, this was a good reminder of just how far I’ve come in EVE. (Which reminds me, though it deserves a full post – it is my firm belief that the interface in EVE HQ was designed to be as user unfriendly as possible. I used it for so short a time I didn’t even bother telling you I had switched.)
With skills, I tend to fetch a cool idea from thin air and move into it, as I have done with Cov Ops. But as I play I have found some gaps in my skill training. I can fly battleships – but I could use another couple of weeks to fill out the skill set better. I have Cov Ops at 4, and have the modules I need, but I have only a minimal rating in probing and its secondary skills.
So I sat down last night and set up a skill plan that will last a few months. It will fill out the remainder of my learning skills to 4, get me set up for T2 gear for frigates and cruisers, all with an aim towards setting me up for command ships and then carrier training over the next year. I’ve been way to excited about getting new ships, and not nearly excited enough about being able to utilize them to their fullest capacity.
Anyway, as I wrapped all this up and got more fully into our mission, I realized we were fighting a faction I hadn’t seen before, the EoM – Equilibrium of Mankind. And they were driving really slick looking versions of Amarr ships. Anyone know if I can get one of their ships via contract or specialized LP?
ETA: After some additional research, it seems they have no LP, agents, or sov. But they make up for it with pretty badass paint schemes…
