Gaining faction standings fast

From UniWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This guide explains how to quickly gain Faction Standings without (or at least less) the need for endless mission grinding. While this guide uses Minmatar standings as an example, the method described here works for all factions. This guide will be particulary useful for pilots wishing to join Factional Warfare, which requires +0.0 faction standing.

COSMOS

COSMOS missions are special missions you can only do once. They are geared towards faction standings. The COSMOS missions can be found in:

  • Amarr
    • High Security - Araz constellation (guide)
    • Low Security - Kenobanala System
  • Caldari - High Security - Okkelen constellation
  • Gallente - High Security - Algintal constellation
  • Minmatar
    • High Security - Metropolis Region - Ani constellation - Nakugard system (guide)
    • Low Security - Audesder System


The Minmatar highsec COSMOS mission in Nakugard contains two parts with light combat. The difficulty of the mission is very low and can be easily handled by day 1 rookie pilots.

  1. Use any ship other than the noobships with light combat capabilities
  2. Buy 150 units of oxygen from anywhere (take 57m3 space), make sure you have the item in your ship!
  3. Fly to Nakugard
  4. Warp to 'The Glass Edge' Beacon
  5. Talk to Level I Agent - Kraimir Mork who is floating in space. He will give you the courier mission Gladiators - Breathing Space (1 of 2). Note: there are a level 2 and a level 3 agent next to Kraimir Mork. They are accessible when you have gain enough standings.
  6. Complete the mission right after accepting it, since you already have the item in your cargo

After completing the courier mission you'll receive part two of the chain, which involves killing 3 NPC pirates and destroying a structure.

After completing these missions your standings will have increased by around 0.03 points. This seems a little but as faction standings go this is a significant chunk. Now we go to the data center missions!

Data Centers

The Data Center missions are mostly missions where you hand in pirate tags (you can loot these in missions and buy them on the market). Basically, it allows you to convert isk into standing. Remember, you can talk to each agent only once! The Data Centers can be found in:

  • Amarr Empire and Ammatar Mandate
    • Polfaly
    • Kudi
    • Ferira
  • Caldari State
    • Ahtulaima
    • Saikanen
    • Kamokor
  • Gallente Federate
    • Abenync
    • Muer
    • Ekuenbiron
  • Minmatar Republic
    • Emolgranlan
    • Arlulf
    • Engosi


The system with most agents is Emolgranlan, which is also closest to Nakugard. Once entered the system, warp to the Data Center beacon. Talk to agent Rilbedur Tjar, who is floating inside a small structure in space. He will offer you a courier mission which involves transporting a Minmatar Graduation Certificate to him. After completing it, you'll receive a 0.36% faction standings increase, and you will be referred to an agent named Pinala Adala in Eram IX - Moon 4 - Sebiestor tribe Bureau. After this agent, the only missions that remain are the Keeping Crime In Check mission where you turn in pirate tags (Angel Copper Tag for example) in return for standings.

The agent in Eram Pinala Adala, offers you the five part mission chain Shaman Secrets. These are three combat and two courier missions. I was again able to do these in an underskilled Atron (Gallente Frigate). Note that for the fourth mission, you are not given an exact location to go to. Instead, you're supposed to decypher that it should be Eram IV - moon 2, based on hints given this mission and the previous one. You'll also need to shoot the neon sign to get the gate key, and you'll get a side mission which gives 0.1 points of faction standing! Read the Shaman Secrets guide (see below) for more details.

After going through all these steps (the Data Center missions excluded, but COSMOS and the certificate mission included) you should have gained around 0.17 faction standing. You can further increase this by the tag missions, regular missions, or factional warfare. When turning in tags - pay close attention to the price. For example, while copper tags (for the most easily accessible agent) cost 1.5mil each, the bronze tags (for the slightly higher quality agent) only cost around 50K. Selecting the right agent (this MAY take standings with that agent's corp) can save you a lot of ISK.
