hi everyone

I've been playing for some days now in a regular account (after 1 or 2 trials accounts)

Ive done the tutorials and the epic arc missions

but now what??

after that i feel pretty lost. its hard to find an aggent who like me and even with i find this, I dont know if its something right to do

I would like to focus my character in questing and solo playing as i dont have much time

anyone could explain me what to do next in a logical planned way

I would like for example something like this

do quests with this corp/empire to get max faction, and you will get this and that. and which this you could get into that arc missions or something like that

hehe, dunno if Ive explained myself xDD

I hope you could help me

thxs anyway

aK

We don't do quests in Eve, we do missions. It will be easier for you if you don't use the word "quest" on the forums. Trust me.

At this point you need to set some goals for your main character. If you want to be a mission-runner/combat pilot, then pick a large corporation in your area that specializes in combat missions. The Navies of the various factions are included of course, as well as other peripheral security related corporations, such as Ministry of Internal Order for Amarr.

If you go to the Item Database section, it will forward you to the Evelopedia, a Wiki type of information portal. Check the backstory area and take a look at the organizations in your faction, which will include corporations you may want to mission for. Large corporations have a lot of stations and agents, and give you more flexibility in agent selection as you move up the ladder to better quality and higher level agents.

Divisions that give combat missions are command, security, intelligence, internal security etc. Administration divisions give a mixture of combat and courier missions. It is best to pick a corporation and stick to it, for as you do more and more missions, your corporate standing will increase and you qualify for better quality agents. Its as simple as going to a station owned by the corporation, and see if they have agents that are availabe to you. Right click on the agent, select "Start Conversation" and you're on your way.

I find this site useful for finding agents: Eve Hidden Agenda.UK

You may want to develop your character as a miner, or a researcher. The player guides give you information on career tracks in these areas, and suggestions on how to best go about skill training.

Set some goals. For example, you want to fly a particular ship, which will take this much Isk to buy and outfit. So you need to fly missions, loot wrecks, sell the loot, and watch your wallet balance increase. Read the skill discussion section of the forums for tips on how to organize your skill training for optimal benefit. EveMon is a separate skill training tool that most players use to organize and figure out their skill path.

If you have questions, go to Google, type in Eve and some key words. As a search engine for researching previous discussions on the forums it is far superior to the Eve website search engine.

Hope this helps, good luck and welcome to Eve.

You should ask people where your hearth stone is. That really gets 'em going.

I'm considering writing a pamphlet entitled, "EVE Translated." For people that come from those "other" games. The lack of a cookie cutter RPG game design and hand holding in EVE can be very exciting but also very alarming to new players. I've already outlined several sections, such as professions and terms in context. The main point is to bring them into a frame of reference based on what they do know so they can better understand what EVE really is.

Eve is a game that is begging for gang pvp, fleet ops, industry or corperation activity.

http://eveinfo.com/agents/1

Now pick a corp, preferably in the region you are in now. Filter for level 1 agents. Go to one of them. If it says not available, click show info on them. It will say on first tab how high of rating you need to talk to them. It will say on last tab what your rating is for the faction, corp, and the agent itself. Once you have the right rating, they will give missions. Now here's the trick to consider; The higher the quality of agent, the more rating you need. So find a low quality level 1 agent to start with.

Level 1 missions you can do easy in a frigate. Level 2 missions you can do in a frigate too, but they will have cruisers in them from time to time, as many as 5 at a time. So you have to be more prepared to handle that, or get a cruiser. Level 3 missions you need a cruiser, but even better get a battle cruiser. Level 4 missions you need a battleship, but you shouldn't rush to a battleship. Don't bother with level 5 missions for a long time.

As far as I know diff. corps give you different loot threw Loyalty points... so it all depends what you are looking for.


If your looking for kill missions, stick with the "Navy" corperations... Its best to pick a race you enjoy and stick with it. Skill training, missions, pvp ships, or whatever you are into.

If you specialize in one race first... you will be much better faster.

Train for a recon ship and anchor bubble. Then camp it and kill people.

Did you want an evil enchantment or a good? Sorry, can't do neutral.
