Hi folks,

I'm trying to get my standings up with Lai Dai corp and was wondering which agent I should use. I can get a lvl3 Q14 internal security agent or a lvl 4 Q0 production one. I've never really done any courier or mining missions so don't know if the standing increase from each mission would be worth the boredom!

Cheers!

First, look at the security of the system those two agents are in. The lower the security, the higher the rewards for the missions (in money, LP, and standings). It seems to me that every .1 lower in security is worth about 10 points of effective quality of the agent. Next, look at quality of the agents. Higher quality = higher rewards, again in all three of money, LP, and standings.

Now, that said, combat missions generally give 2+ times the reward of courier missions. Mining missions can actually be decent, simply because of the time required to do them. I ran missions for a while for one of the Amarr shipment corps. There was a spot in the level 2 missions where there were no administration/security/internal security agents I could use, so I had to run distribution and storage agents to grind up standing before I could switch to a combat agent. It was extremely tedious. It would have worked out better had I been in a position where I could use a storyline agent from the same corp, but I had no luck there. I'd recommend going with the internal security guy until you get access to a level 4 from one of the divisions that gives a lot of combat missions.

While kill missions offer more standings gains than courier - you can run 4,5,6 courier missions at a time if you can find the right station.

That's your key to quickly getting storylines.

While this is most often sage advice, I suggest you use the Internal Security agent (Raustilo Nesenoilen) since you are more concerned with corp standings than faction standings. Getting a storyline mission is a great boost to both types of standings but Lai Dai is one of the few corps that has no storyline agents. As such the true benefit you might get running couriers will be wasted by doing the storyline for some other corp.

I was in your shoes and this was the option I chose. I have been happy with the decision. Please be aware that the storylines you get will be from an agent in Airaken (IIRC) and some will send you to low sec. I turned those down.

Hope this helps

courier mission agent into kill mission storylines. Best way.

The best way to gain standings with Lai Dai is to run the Caldari cosmos missions that apply to that corp. Then use the Level 3 internal security agent to gain the last bit of standing needed.

Wasn't aware Lai Dai didn't have storylines in-house. My bad.

get into a BC and go for lvl3 kill missions. most of them can be done in a few minutes, unlike most lvl4. You will get more storylines this way too but it's the normal missions that increase your corp standing.
