On a side note:
I'll be adding another section to the 'Plan' about the Epic Arc's, Mainly the level 1 SoE Arc which can be used every 3 months to help even up lop-sided Faction Standings. Also when each Factions standing get's up high enough to access the first agent in the level 4 Epic Arc's, it's a good idea to complete that first mission of the arc and then let the Arc sit in the journal. That way after you've completed all the Cosmos agents, you'll still have access to the level 4 Epic Arcs which also can be completed every 3 months for Faction Standing gain.

This was the only item in your whole report that I didn't quite get.

Can you clarify this a bit for me please, because I seem to be a bit slow on this one.

Why do the mission and then leave it? I haven't done any COSMOS or Epic Arc missions, but don't they have timers like other missions? Can you really leave them that long?

Or are you talking about the arc of missions - do you mean they do not automatically assign you the next mission when you finish the one you are working on? I had always assumed that it was like the deadspace exploration escalation sites that push you from one to the next to the next, with little time in-between to take a breather.

But even if this is the case, why do you want to do the level 4 Epic Arc mission - and then leave it sitting. Why not do it now and then the 3 month countdown timer for your next epic arc can begin sooner? Like I said, I am afraid that I am missing something here...

Thanks again DMC.

Epic arcs do not have timers. You can get the mission offer and let it stay in your journal for as long as you wish.

The reason why it's suggested to start epic arck and leave it uncompleeted until you finish cosmos missions is because both those types of missions alter faction standings drasticaly and sometimes it's wise not to alter these numbers untill you finish cosmos missions so you will be able to acces them for the opposing faction.

The information posted above is correct. I guess I need to change the statement listed in the 'Plan' a little bit.

The reason I said to complete the first mission of the level 4 Epic Arcs and then let it sit in the journal is because that's the only time your standings will be checked. There is no time limit on accepting the next Epic Arc mission.

I should have included that either Faction or Corporation standing of +6.80 or higher is needed to access the starting agent. If you grind Corporation standing and complete the starting agent mission for each level 4 Epic Arc, you can have all 4 Arcs listed in the journal active and waiting.

I've completed all Factions lv 3 and lower Cosmos agents along with all Tutorial, Career, Circle and most of the Data Center Agents, it now looks like I'll have to complete all of the level 4 Epic Arcs to gain access to the level 4 Cosmos Agents.

This is actually a good thing because after completing all Factions level 4 Cosmos Agents, I should then be able to access the Epic Arcs again to further boost my Faction standings and hopefully be able or close to accessing the Faction ship offers.

This 'Faction Standing Repair Plan' is actually a 'work in progress' and as such is subject to a few small changes along the way. As I complete each and every step of the 'Plan', I make the necessary changes and always list any edit's done to the 'Plan'. Once I've completed everything, this 'Plan' will become a 'Guide' which I'll post in the Evelopedia.

Lately I've been busy grinding Corporation standings for Research Agents. As of right now I have access to top level/quality Research Agents with Amarr, Ammatar, Gallente, Minmatar and Thukker. After I gain access to Caldari Research Agents, I'll then go complete all level 4 Epic Arcs and then work the level 4 Cosmos Agents.

Once again, thank you all for taking the time to read and reply to this thread. I wish you all the best of luck and hope the information in this 'Plan' helps everyone as much as it has helped me.

Hey DMC, great guide! Thanks a ton, buddy!

I don't mean to be a word-smith, but there are a few small questions I hope you can clarify.

You said:
Quote:
"After completing all the lv 1 Data Center Agent missions, now do the lv 1 Cosmos Agent missions. You can only decline the first mission offered and still have access to Agent later."


Emphasis is mine. What do you mean "you can ONLY decline the first mission..." The first one is repeatable? You can decline it and get it again later? Other COSMOS agents must have their mission completed or you lose it? Sorry, I am confused.

Also, I thought that COSMOS missions needed to be done in a specific order, as in, one agent refers to the next, and so on. Or do I have that mixed up with something else?

Long before I knew what COSMOS missions were, I took a mission and could not finish it. It was a level 1 mission, but I could not obtain the required item before the timer popped. Am I screwed for COSMOS missions or, if that was my first one, can I just repeat it?

One more question. You said:
Quote:
"While working this 'Plan', talk to all the agents and if it's a 1 part mission that doesn't say 'Important Storyline' (Yellow Text) in the journal and have a good reward, decline it. All Event Agent missions will be listed as 'Storyline' even if it doesn't give Faction Standing increase. Usually the last part of the multi part missions will be the 'Important Storyline' (Faction Standing increase). "


EmbarassedReally dense question here, but, I thought that you had to DO 16 missions to GET a storyline mission. If you decline them all, then how do you get the storyline missions? Also, doesn't declining missions damage your standing? I know I must be missing something.

My apologies for the small and possibly stupid questions.

Most of the Cosmos Agents will offer a multi-part mission. When you first talk to any of the agents, you can decline part 1 of the Agent's mission series until you're ready to do it. This will keep the offer out of your journal so it won't have a countdown expire timer going. This is only good for the Agent's first mission offer. After it's completed, you'll have the next part offered and listed in your journal which will have the expire timer (1 week to accept). If you decline it, quit or let it expire, the mission series will end and you'll no longer have access to that Agent. The offered 2nd, 3rd, 4th part, etc, showing in the journal can be viewed for details which will allow you time to find and acquire the specific item or items to complete the mission before accepting it.

Some of the Cosmos Agents will give you a specific item and a referral to another Agent. The Guides linked in the 'Plan' will list those Agents in their specific order.

Now this is what I'm talking about. If you had talked to the Agent and viewed his first mission offer without accepting it and then declined it, you would of had time to locate and obtain the required item. If it was the 2nd or 3rd part, etc of the mission series, you'd have 1 week to accept it and then another week to complete it. Anyway, sorry to say this but that Agent is no longer available. Hopefully it wasn't an important one. If that Agent gave an item for referral to another Agent, you can probably get the item from public contracts. On the bright side, all the other Agents are still available.

All of the Agents listed in this 'Plan' are Event Agents. Almost all Event Agents offer a 'Storyline' mission for Faction Standing increase. There are a few Event Agents that only offer a 1 part mission which doesn't give any Faction Standing increase when completed. These Agents are the ones I am referring to when I advise to decline their mission offer. When offered a mission, always check your journal before accepting. If it doesn't show 'Important Storyline' and it is only a single mission, decline it. The time and isk spent to complete it just isn't worth it. No negative standings will be incurred. The multi-part mission offers will usually be the 'Important Storyline' with Faction Standing increase when completed.

No need to be sorry, the only stupid questions are the ones that aren't asked. If you're not sure about something then definitely ASK about it. In this game, Information is King and Conversation is it's Queen.

I hope this information helps and if there's anything else that you're unsure about, just ask and I'll be more than happy to clarify and or explain.

Dude, great answers! Thanks again. There are a ton of things you have clarified for people throughout this thread. Things like this make the original post even better than it was. Too bad you are limited to the first couple of posts for your edits and probably don't have the room to add in all of these bits and pieces to the original post.

Anyways, thanks again DMC.

You're welcome and thanks for the complement. Cool

Yes there is a lot of information that can be added but each post only allows a set amount of text and the URL links take up quite a bit of space. Also as I said, this 'Plan' is a work in progress and until I complete each and every step, is subject to a few small changes.

As soon as I complete this 'Plan', I'll then take all of the URL's, steps, notes, questions and answers and compile it all into a 'Guide' which will be more precise with a lot more clarification.

As always, I'll be sure to keep everyone updated with my progress while working this 'Plan'.

Great guide, thanks DMC. It has helped to stop my Gallente/Minmatar slide and you have many types of missions listed that I knew nothing about.

I am wondering whether there are any repeatable missions that give faction standing increases besides the epic arcs and storyline missions.

Thanks Max, it's always good to hear that.

At this time the only repeatable agents that I know about to gain Faction Standing increase with are the Epic Arc agents, once every 3 months.

If any other Event Agents are recruited and become active, I'll be sure to research their info and list them. Also if anyone else happens to locate any new Event Agents, please list them here and I'll be sure to update their info into the 'Plan'.

Hey,

I just got two questions.....

1. Many of these mission you list here seem to be one off missions. So, is if safe to assume that this repair progam can only really be done once?

2. I'm getting stuck at the first hurdle (well, I might not be). I have just completed the first two tutorial military missions for Minmater (-2.11 standing) and at the end, they both told me that they had a friend that might make use of my fantastic manouevering skills..... and that they put the bookmark in my P&P.

However, I can not find either book mark. Is there an issue with this? should I just carry on going through the missions? I just dont wanna miss out on something.

Regards

Barrak

I was wondering, I have around 2.5 SP after the removal of learning skills. I was planning on putting this into the social skills which would still leave me with something over.

Would you recomend that I put this into research so that I can do as you are, which is to produce datacores......

If so, does anyone know a good place to read about these as I know very little about them.

The more I read this thread the more I think of turning this character back into a missioning pilot which I am happy to do providing I can get the most from him.

*EDIT*

Just completed the first round of Minmatar Tutorial missions.

My standings have changed:

Minmatar. -2.11 to -1.59
Gallente. -3.38 to -2.93

Thank you very much, it's good to hear this 'Plan' is helping players with Faction standings.

Yes, the majority of the agents in this 'Plan' can only be accessed one time. After completing all of the Event Agent missions, you'll still be able to raise Faction standings with the Epic Arc's every three months.

The Tutorial agents give you a bookmark to one of the Career Agents and if you follow the 'Plan', you'll still access that agent so actually you're not missing it.

Social skills help a lot, in fact very much so that it's a good idea to train up those skills asap.

The section about the Research Agents was just an afterthought to provide another way to help equal up lop sided standings along with the Sisters of Eve level 1 Epic Arc. The Research Agents are not a crucial aspect of this "plan' for repairing negative Faction standings. Datacores can be used as a way to gain passive isk once you have the required standings and skills.

I hope this answers your questions and thank you again for posting. Good luck to you and I hope you all have continued success working this 'Faction Standing Repair Plan'.

I'll be posting another update of my stats and progress very soon.

I am trying to fix my gallente faction standing (-5.4 atm) and tried to do the gallente tutorial mission, I ran past a few sentry gun system and finally got my first tutorial mission, when I warp to the location in the same system, bam bam bam, an Federation NPC was right there at the spot and it blown up my ship before I warp out....

What went wrong? my guess is I should instead of go to gallente space, I should work for their buddy the Minmatar? I am also training Diplo IV atm and wish it help.

Shocked Sorry to hear that.

Yes, training Diplomacy will help a lot. Now if your Minmatar Faction standing is above -5.00 then yes, do some of the Minmatar Event Agent missions until Gallente is above -5.00 Faction standing. Then you can enter Gallente space and work the Gallente Event Agents.

Started working on this great plan with my new capsuleer. I started right off the bat doing the SoE epic with the help of my "main", and then the 60 tutorial missions. Just did the SoE epic arc again for the 2nd time and I started on the career agents. So thanks! :)

I have both a suggestion and two questions. I'll start with the questions:


Q1. If I, for example, have 6.0 standing with the Caldari Navy, and positive standings with all the other Caldari Corporations, but a Caldari Faction standing at -5.01, will the Caldari Navy still shoot at me? Will the low faction standing override the high corp standing?


Q2. It says in the Standings Mechanics that:
Quote:
Please note: If anyone of these three standings [Agent, Corporation, Faction] drops below -2.0, you may find yourself unable to get work from decent level 1 and higher agents. Agents level 1, quality 0 and lower will be still available to you regardless of your faction/corporation standings.

To continue the above example, if I improve the Caldari faction standing to -2.3, and still have the Caldari Navy at 6.0, will I be unable to work for the Caldari Navy? Even for the Caldari Navy agents that I have a high personal standing with? Would I have to improve the Caldari faction standing to -1.99 to work agents better than L1 Q0 regardless of current agent or corp standings?


Suggestion: It might be a good addition to the guide if you explain the mechanics around -2.0 faction standing directly in it. I know it's mentioned in later posts, but it's a fairly important milestone. :)

Thanks, hope you continue to have good luck.

Yes, Faction Navy NPC's will attack you if you enter their space with a Faction standing of -5.00 or lower, regardless of your corporation standing or your security status.

To be able to freely travel anywhere in Eve, all your Empire Faction standing's must be above -5.00 and your security status must be above -2.00.

Access to high level agents :

Faction Standing - high standing allows access to all agents of all corps in that specific Faction.
Corporation Standing - high standing allows access to all agents in that specific Corporation.
Agent Standing - high standing allows access to that specific Agent.

As was stated, if any of those 3 standings drop to -2.00 or lower, you'll only have access to level 1 quality 0 or lower agents.

I hope this answers your questions.

With all the time and effort your putting into this, Its commendable. There is something to be said about having "the highest possible standings will all opposing factions."

However, on a practical maner, this is completely insane.

Balanced Faction standings prevent you from having easily accessable agents within that faction, so you wont be able to hop from doing level IV's for the Navy and then Level IV's with whatever research agent you want out of that faction on a whim.

With the way your doing it, then for EVERY corporation you want standings with your going to need to start just about at the bottom of the totem pole for every corporation.

A bit of advice to anyone wanting to play the "Super" standings game: Just concentrate on the corporations you want, and don't let your effective (modified) standings drop below -1.99 (about -5.0 with diplomacy). You can do storyline for other factions, just don't blow up other faction ships and your standings with negative factions will ride on the "floor".

When you want to go grind another set, just blitz the toem pole and pick your corp. With solid social skills it takes 1-2 days utilizing the agent locator to unlock level IV's.


But heh, if you want to run around and do all this, have at bro. =)

Good advice and cconsolodation of material on how to bring those major negative up from the brink BTW. I just disagree with leveling out ALL your standings. Its a waste of effort mechanically.


Wanted to comment, even though the post is a couple of months old. :)

I get what you are saying, but I also understand the rationale and reasons DeMichael Crimson has for doing it the way he is. Whether or not this is "insane" really comes down to what your goals are. I have a scientist/researcher myself, and for him this plan is great as it is, and matches the goals of easy access everywhere in the empire.

This guy here is my (future) mission runner, and for him my goals are a bit different. Even so, this plan is a great start for 2 reasons:

1. My skills are still low so it's perfect for me to do all these L1 missions now that will give me direct access to L3 agents in most Empire factions later. I only have 5.6M SP, where 2.3M are in social skills (all 13 skills at IV or V, and in 48 days they will all be at V). In 2 months, once I get a few more support skills up, I can start doing L2s and L3s for various corps in the factions I have the lowest standings with.

2. My ultimate goals are to have high corp standings with as many corps I can possibly get to, including pirate corps. At first I'll be completely killing my pirate standings to get high corp standings with all the empire based corps as fast as possible (insta-access to L3s for blitzing). After that I'll do the pirate epic arcs and start working on the pirate corps, while keeping my empire standings above -2.00 via the 5 epic arcs and perhaps a few storylines here and there.

I still have to work out how to keep every single faction standing above -2.00, but it looks like it should be possible if I am picky about my missions.

Yeah, the player who posted that was incorrect about a few things which I had pointed out in a reply to that post. It's like the old saying - 'You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.'

I still have to work out how to keep every single faction standing above -2.00, but it looks like it should be possible if I am picky about my missions.


One of my goals is to complete all Event Agent missions which also includes the Pirate Faction Event Agents.

After gaining high Empire Faction standings, it'll be easy to gain positive Angel and Guristas Faction standings by completing the Pirate Epic Arcs every 3 months.

Those 2 Factions also have some Cosmos Agents.

As for the other Pirate Factions, that'll be a challenge and quite a major task to complete. CCP Devs have said they would eventually create Epic Arcs for the other Pirate Factions but haven't given a date as to when this would happen.

Most players believe that one or more Factions will always be negative standing no matter what you do. I believe with the right planing, skills and as you said, completing specific missions, all Factions can be positive standing. Maybe not high positive standing but still positive.

Only time will tell.

Is it always possible to recover standings? For example, let's say I followed The Plan and then later let my standings plummet. Can I always find a Level 1 Quality -18 agent with a Corp/Faction I can work for even if I am -5.0 and lower with that Corp/Faction?

Hi, thanks for posting.

Yes it's always possible to recover negative standings. However it may take quite a while to do it, depending on the circumstances.

The majority of the Agents listed in the 'Plan' are a one time use for the lifetime of the player character. If you were to follow and complete all of the Event Agent missions listed in the 'Plan' and then let your Faction standings plummet again, the only ones you'd have access to would be the Epic Arc Agents.

Yes, all regular Level 1 Quality 0 or lower Agents are always available to everyone regardless of standings so those Agents could be considered the last resort option to regain positive standings.

Hopefully this answered your questions.

Good luck to you.

Thanks, hope this helps.

All level 1 quality 0 and lower Agents are available to everyone regardless of Faction standings. All Career, Tutorial, Circle and a few Data Center along with some Cosmos Agents are at that level. As long as the Faction standing is above -5.00 and your Security Status is above -2.00, you can enter Minmatar high security space to complete those missions.
