I'm thinking of creating a new character to support my pirate main. I need the new char to be able to do the following:

* Mining (Barge / Mining BS)
* Transportation (Low-sec)
* Production (Nothing major)
* Buy / Sell (Nothing major)
* R&D (I have no idea what this entails, but a T2 BPO would be uber Laughing)

I intend creating a new account, then after the skills are trained then moving him onto my main account as an alt.

So what would be the best race / bloodline for this?
What attributes are important for the supporting skills?
What implants should I get for which attribs?
How long do you think its gonna take?

Have I missed anything? Very Happy

While I am a noob, I have researched this fairly deep.

I have found that I am using Gallanete as my race due to the use of Drones. Drones can making mining uber effeicent. Even in a noob frigate with 2 drones and a single mining laser I filled in just a few minutes. With laregr ships this plays out more. Also if you want a serious mining ships, drones provide defense for you. If you have a good warship, drones allow you to effectively mine.

Attributes for mining are 90% INT and MEM with some PER for the drones.

I have only had my base character a day and so far I having Mining 3 and Refining 2. My skills for learning are all in the 3 range and will soon be pushing to 4.

Go with Caldari Deitis. When youre at the character creation and you get to add the 5 points, add 1 to intel, 2 to perc and 2 to willpower. then pick the ancestry that gives you +4 to mem.

You will want balanced stats for a mining alt, int/mem for industry skills, perception/will for getting into bigger ships, like barges, or Freighter, and Charisma for tradeskills, which my alt has seemed to be picking up lately
