Pyramid Skill Plan

Summary

This plan is intended for players looking to increase their knowledge and skill set beyond the Short Skill Plan. If you have completed the Short Skill Plan you are ready to move on to the Pyramid Skill Plan and the diverse world of ships and weapons that New Eden offers.

The first level of the Pyramid needs to be completed in its entirety and acts as the keystone that supports and ties together what follows; however, after this each level allows for specializations if so desired. For example, on Level-2 of the Pyramid you could choose to focus on T2 Logi and then move to Level-3 to work on T2 Command Boost Support & T2 Boosts without having completed T2 EWAR. This would benefit an Incursion runner interested in logistics and boosting as well as anyone looking to provide fleet support functions in any other kind of fleet. Some careful consideration will be required at each level to ensure you are gaining the skills needed to do the activities you are interested in.

Completing all specializations in each level will make a more complete pilot out of you but it will also take significantly longer to reach the highest levels of any given specialization. It is recommended that you focus on a specific role and work it through to the end and then return to a lower level of the pyramid and develop another specialization through to the end before repeating the cycle again.

In this way you will become an expert pilot that can provide unique capabilities in fleets and over time expand your portfolio of functions at this higher level.

Level-4 of the pyramid has no specific skill plans associated with it at this time. It is assumed that by the time you reach this level you would have a solid understanding of the requirements needed to specialize and choose a class of hulls and role within it.

Cost

Please note that NOT ALL of the skills on this plan are covered under EVE University's Skillbook Reimbursement Program Particularly those in Pyramid Level-4. The majority of skillbooks are covered but because this is a more advanced skill plan you will want to verify the individual skill book cost before assuming EVE University will reimburse you for it per the program guidelines.

The total costs for each stage of the plan are as follows (at the direct injectable price):

Wallet.png

Pyramid Level-1: 4.5M ISK
Pyramid Level-2: 1 or 7M ISK per focus (10M ISK to complete the entire level)
Pyramid Level-3: 1M, 1.5M, or 9M ISK per focus (11.5M ISK to complete the entire level)
Pyramid Level-4: ??? ISK

(All prices were Jita Buy at time of documentation and are subject to change with the market; does not include skills previously injected for Short Skill Plan)

Suggested shopping lists

If you have the Freshman title in EVE University you can reimburse yourself for the cost of these skills by following the instructions on the Skillbook Reimbursement Program page. You can also check in the hangars for the campus you are based in, to see whether they have any of the skill books available.

If you are in EVE University but don't yet have the Freshman title you can still obtain reimbursement for the cost of the skills. You will need to copy and paste the prepared messages (below each shopping list) into the Corp channel so someone with the Freshman title or above can reimburse you from the Skillbook Wallet. Remember to remove from the list any skills you already had trained.

Completion of the above set of skills enhances the Short Skill Plan and provides the keystone that supports and ties together the higher levels of the Pyramid Skill Pan. From this point forward choosing a specific focus and completing it should be your goal. It is not necessary to complete all focus areas in a given level before moving on to the next level. Make good decisions based on what you want to do in game. You can always return to a previous level and work on a new focus area in the future. This is not a linear skill plan; however, there is a progression in ability from one level to the next.

Specialization is the key to being good in EVE. In level-2 you should have completed at least one focus area before moving up to the next Pyramid Level. You may complete more than one focus area but realize that each focus should be completed in order to enable its follow on counterpart in the next level. For example, if you chose to focus on T2 Logistics in Level-2 you now have the ability to utilize T2 Logistics modules. To complete the goal of flying T2 Logistics Cruisers in Level-4 your next step would be to focus on T2 Drones in Level-3 thus creating a path through the pyramid to reach your desired goal.

If you've made it this far in the Pyramid give yourself a pat on the back! You now have formidable skills that can be utilized in a variety of fleet types. You can make use of T2 modules and equipment effectively on T1 hulls. To maximize those skills you'll want to consider stepping into T2 hulls and specializations however. T2 hulls provide unique bonuses that can exponentially multiply your skills making you a much more valuable fleet member. The diversity represented in Pyramid Level-4 is vast. Use the same focus and attention to detail you used to get this far as you consider what to focus on in Level-4. Complete all of a chosen focus before either returning to a lower Pyramid level, or selecting another area for specialization. You should have a good enough understanding at this point to make these choices on your own; however, skill plans and training are always great subjects for live discussion on Mumble! So get into your local campus chat and theorize with your fellow Unistas! Congratulations on your excellent progress thus far capsuleer!
