Overview

Skills that make all ships you fly faster and more agile. Also skills that control operation and effectiveness of afterburners (AB), microwarp drives (MWD), warp drives and jump drives.

Intelligence and Perception help you learn to navigate your ship.

The following are the skills in the Navigation section (in alphabetical order):

Skill Purpose
Acceleration Control Bonus to AB/MWD speed boost per level.
Afterburner Reduction in AB cycle duration and capacitor use per level.

High Speed Maneuvering Less capacitor needed for MWD modules.
Jump Drive Calibration Increases jump drive range.
Jump Drive Operation Reduces jump drive capacitor usage.
Jump Fuel Conservation Reduces jump drive fuel usage.
Jump Portal Generation Allows operation of Jump Portal Generators.

Skill Details

Icon skillbook2.png Acceleration Control

Skill at efficiently using Afterburners and MicroWarpdrives. 5% Bonus to Afterburner and MicroWarpdrive speed boost per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 4x
Isk.png Price: 40k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: III
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation III
Notes.png Notes: More oomph from propulsion modules is good for anyone who ever uses propulsion modules, which is pretty much everyone.



Icon skillbook2.png Afterburner

Skill at using afterburners. 5% reduction to Afterburner duration and 10% reduction in Afterburner capacitor use per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 1x
Isk.png Price: 22.5k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: III
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation I
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Afterburners
Icon skillbook2.png II required for: Icon skillbook2.png Fuel Conservation
Icon skillbook2.png III required for: Icon skillbook2.png High Speed Maneuvering
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Tech 2 Afterburners
Notes.png Notes: Duration (cycle time) bonus works out as a reduction in AB capacitor use. Most pilots train this to III as a prerequisite for High Speed Maneuvering (and MWDs); if you use ABs a lot (deadspace PvE, armour HACs or solo PvP frigate work, for example) then pump more SP into this skill -- together with Fuel Conservation it can lower AB cap consumption to pretty negligible levels.



Icon skillbook2.png Cynosural Field Theory

Skill at creating effective cynosural fields. 10% reduction in liquid ozone consumption for module activation per skill level. Can not be trained on Trial Accounts.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngMemory.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 5x
Isk.png Price: 10M ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: Alpha pilot can not train this skill.
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: CPU Management V
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Cynosural Field Generator I
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Covert Cynosural Field Generator I
Notes.png Notes: The required skill to light cynos for other people to jump their capital ships to. The higher you train it, the less fuel you need to light a cyno, and the less cargo space your cyno ship needs.



Icon skillbook2.png Evasive Maneuvering

Improved skill at efficiently turning and accelerating a spaceship. 5% improved ship agility for all ships per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 25k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: III
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation II
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Stasis Grapplers
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Heavy Stasis Grappler II
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Icon skillbook2.png Interceptors
Notes.png Notes: Affects every ship you fly, particularly important for specialisation in small ships and/or skirmishing/kiting tactics, but good for everyone. Level V is one of the prerequisites for interceptors.



Icon skillbook2.png Fuel Conservation

Improved control over afterburner energy consumption. 10% reduction in afterburner capacitor needs per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 2x
Isk.png Price: 30k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: Alpha pilot can not train this skill.
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation II; Afterburner II
Notes.png Notes: Has limited value in PvP, but it's particularly useful if you're flying a slow PvE setup and want to be capstable with an afterburner running.



Icon skillbook2.png High Speed Maneuvering

Skill at using MicroWarpdrives. 5% reduction in MicroWarpdrive capacitor usage per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 5x
Isk.png Price: 340k ISK

Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation III, Afterburner III
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Faction Microwarpdrives
Icon skillbook2.png III required for: 5MN Microwarpdrive II
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: 50MN Microwarpdrive II; 500MN Microwarpdrive II; 50000MN Microwarpdrive II
Notes.png Notes: The vast majority of PvP fits involve a MWD, so the vast majority of pilots train to use them.

Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 9x

Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation IV; Warp Drive Operation II
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Medium/Large Micro Jump Drive; Micro Jump Field Generator
Notes.png Notes: Since the spool-up time of a MJD is 12 seconds, each level in this skill buys you .6 seconds {11.4, 10.8, 10.2, 9.6, 9}. Currently applicable for battleships and battlecruisers, as they are the only classes that can fit the MJD, and for command destroyers, who can fit the MJFG.



Icon skillbook2.png Navigation

Skill at regulating the power output of ship thrusters. 5% bonus to sub-warp ship velocity per skill level.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 1x
Isk.png Price: 20k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: IV
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: none
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Warp Scramblers; Icon skillbook2.png Afterburner; Icon skillbook2.png Warp Drive Operation
Icon skillbook2.png II required for: Icon skillbook2.png Propulsion Jamming; Icon skillbook2.png Fuel Conservation; Icon skillbook2.png Evasive Maneuvering
Icon skillbook2.png III required for: Icon skillbook2.png Acceleration Control; Icon skillbook2.png High Speed Maneuvering
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Tech 1 and Faction Heavy Warp Scramblers; Icon skillbook2.png Micro Jump Drive Operation
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Heavy Warp Scrambler II; Icon skillbook2.png Jump Drive Operation; Icon skillbook2.png Amarr Propulsion Systems; Icon skillbook2.png Caldari Propulsion Systems; Icon skillbook2.png Gallente Propulsion Systems; Icon skillbook2.png Minmatar Propulsion Systems
Notes.png Notes: Extra sub-warp speed on every ship you fly is a nice benefit for PvE or PvP combat, and is particularly important for pilots specialising in smaller ships. Many of the other skills in this category also require at least a few levels in Navigation.



Icon skillbook2.png Warp Drive Operation

Skill at managing warp drive efficiency. Each skill level reduces the capacitor need of initiating warp by 10%.
Implants.png Attributes: Intelligence.pngPerception.png
Multiplier.png Multiplier: 1x
Isk.png Price: 30k ISK
Alpha.png Alpha max level: III
Icon skillbook2.png Prerequisites: Navigation I
Icon skillbook2.png I required for: Tech 1 and Storyline Warp Core Stabilizers; Hyperspatial Accelerators
Icon skillbook2.png II required for: Icon skillbook2.png Micro Jump Drive Operation
Icon skillbook2.png IV required for: Warp Core Stabilizer II
Icon skillbook2.png V required for: Icon skillbook2.png Jump Drive Operation
Notes.png Notes: Dropping out of warp early because you don't have enough capacitor is inconvenient at best, and potentially quite dangerous if you're part of a PvP fleet operation. Training this to IV should solve that problem for all but the longest warps. Taking WDO to V is probably not a priority, but may help capacitor-hungry PvP pilots who want to arrive on the field with that extra sliver of available energy.
