Hey folks.

Im trying to determine if its "worth" it to reroll my toon. When i started playing last July the skills were already set when you picked a race/bloodline, and I picked a Minny Sebeistor Tinker, as at the time manufacturing and mining appealed to me (and when I used the neural remap, it appealed then) but I have since decided thats not my thing. I have 5.5m sp (not a huge amount) with a high int but lower perception (26 int 21 per, with implants/learnings) and have decided i prefer pvp, piracy, and in general seeing things go boom. I dont have a remap available for about 10 more months, and the training time on pilot/gunnery skills is frustrating. Should i simply roll a new toon or try to salvage this one? I have a lot of skills I dont really want or need (mining barge, science, industry, etc) and only have some basics like electronics, engineering, Minny frig, gunnery, etc to 5. I cancelled my account for a while over the fall, so i guess this represents about 5 months of training time. I suppose in the world of Eve 5m SP isnt much, any advice?

First, don't bin your character if you do decide to re-roll. Sell it, (you'll get maybe a billion ISK or so for most characters in that SP range), shelve it or train a few skills you might find useful in an alt (hauler, trader, mission runner, etc.)

Having said that, do up a training plan in Evemon to see if its worthwhile to start a new character with optimized attributes. You may find your new character requires too much training to catch up to what you want to be. Your current character likely has learning skills trained with your other supports and this is a deficit you would have to overtake with your new character to make it worthwhile.

If you've gotten a lot of points into learnings already, you might as well just stick with this character and crosstrain into something else. It doesn't take that long anymore, and you can remap your attributes to give you Per/Will with little or no Int/Mem and as little CHA as possible. (Remember, the remap is once every 12 months, so plan on training ships and gunnery stuff for the next year).

DO NOT "re-roll"

There are PLENTY of skills that will use Intelligence which you will need for PVP and PVE.

And your Perc is not THAT low... you can still train some ships and guns, while focusing on your support skills.

Thanks folks. I guess i was discouraged by hearing about people training racial frig 5 in like 8 days, but i will stick with it. I suppose i can wait for BS 5 etc and train all the int/mem intensive skills now.

the diffrance from 26 to 21 in a lvl5 BS skill for time is like 3 extra days at best.

big deal, keep skilling with what you got.

All characters can train all skills, ergo you can simply change your skill training direction with this character just as easily as rerolling. If you started over, you'd lose the 5 months worth of skills you've already invested in. So your perception is a little lower than the ideal, I doubt you would catch up in 5 months if you started a new character today. Continue training as you would, perhaps try and get any eng/elec skills out the way too, in 10 months you'll remap a 14-15m SP character with a decent set of skills.

On a more important note, if you were a miner don't *start by pvping in a BS. It's a bad idea start with a cruiser max.

Also, most people can't "afford" their pvp. So your other skills can be used to fuel your pvp desires. Actually... you can have 3 characters on one account. If you really want to just stop trainning this account and just use the skills you currently have again to fund pvp. Cause low sec pvp for one thing may make it difficult to get back to high sec. And sometimes people who you kill follow you back. So the appearance of 2 characters could be beneficial.

Stick with your character, you'll regret not doing so. 21 perception is far from horrible.

Buy an arbitrator and train drones = win. I assume you have high memory.
