Hi :). Sorry if someone posted this already-but I am new and I love posts like this to learn from.

I'd specialize instead of try to do all the things possible.

Same. I can fly the apoc, megathron, and raven (along with caldari assault frigs, ceptors, and training for HAC's) and I wish I had of skipped training for the apoc (not the mega though I like the looks too much and it was my first BS :p ) and I would of skipped training mining and astro up when I first started (I started as a miner but quit mining lonnng before the new mining stuff).

I'm specing myself now as a caldari fighter by climbing the t2 hybrid tree and I have about 16 days to caldari HAC's and I will work on t2 missile skills when those come out. Megathron <3 too much and it will go along with my t2 hybrid skills when I get there but the time I spent training Amarr BS2 and Lasers along with miner skills would of been better spent in my caldari centered stuff.

Wish I had learnt more learning skills quicker, also wish I'd joined a good corp that would help me when I was just a noob as you learn so much and the game becomes ten times more addictive when you have a good understanding.

- Click custom character creation (better options)
- Train learning skills to advanced earlier
- Specialise
- Not be in such a rush to get to a battleship

But all of that is easy to say nowEmbarassed

Wish I didn't listen to the CCP description of attributes. I wanted to be a fighter, and so started with 4 memory but 13 perception

I would have not bothered with the first corp i signed up to...god what a waste of time. The people were good, and i still talk to most of them from time to time, but the corp itself was a terrible place. No real leadership, things took forever to organise, no defence. We lost SO much to greifer corps, right up to the point where most left, and i STILL stayed for another 3 months in which i saw the corp grow again, then get lead to dangerous space, become a victim to MORE griefer corps, shrink again (more leavers) and wind up back at square one...and i STILL stayed for another 3 months! But after that, with no new blood, and terrible activity, i decided to leave...

Other than that, i can't think of anything else. I specialised from the beginning, but i probably would have ignored mining skills all together. About 6 months in, i discovered i'd rather be a hard-core fighter/defender of miners than a defenceless miner...

What a refreshing question to ask.

Honestly I think the next character I train up I am going to spend the first month just having him max all his training skills and be done with that.
