The Ploy

Super Simple Salvage Split Solution

  • If dedicated salvager runs during fleet - they get double share for all missions
  • If dedicated salvager stays after fleet is finished - they get double share for all missions
  • If someone runs missions, and then goes salvaging - they get double share for all missions
  • If no dedicated salvager - bookmarks are donated to shared folder, at least 30 minutes before despawn


Evergreen Skill Plan

EvergreenSkillPlan.PNG

Evergreen Skill Plan is my take on skills that you should train in the beginning. Feel free to modify it according to your taste - I find it a bit better than Pyramid Skill Plan - it covers more or less the same skills, but in different order.


My general recommendation is to train Short Skill Plan, then Root skills. After that select your tank type and main weapon system, put both skill lists into queue, and start training from shortest skills - starting from short skills gives you the most gain in short time, and you'll gradually improve tank/weapon skills. You can also include Support skills list into that if you wish - I trained it after T2 tank. Later you can finish with T2 weapon support skills, and add Drones - for majority of ships at BC+ size drones are useful to have.

What these lists do not include, are skills for specific weapons - train them up to lvl III if you need them, to lvl V + Specialization if you really love them and they will become your main weapons. Don't be afraid to test different weapons systems - you might find that you prefer one over another. I also did not include ship skills - train them when you feel like flying different ships :)


Bottom line: If you need some skills to fly a new ship - train them and have fun, don't let this plan limit what you can do!



Root skills are almost the same as pyramid base - these skills are universally useful, I highly recommend training them first. I know that CPU/PG Management V are long trains, but this really opens up your fitting possibilities.

T2 Tank skills - you don't need to train both types of tanks in the beginning. If you focus mainly on one type of tank, feel free to ignore the second one, and train it later. T2 tank skills are very useful - I recommend having them trained when you start flying in BCs.

T2 Shield

T1 Weapon systems - again, at first you do not have to train everything. If you choose one weapon system you like the most, train support skills for that system first. For Launchers and Turrets you also need to add specific skills - I have not included them here, since that depends a lot on your preference and play style.

Support skills. This list might grow, but in my opinion that's minimum of support skills you need - they are useful for all different ships and tasks, and having them will be beneficial.

T2 Wepons support skills - if you have found your favourite weapon system, train specific weapon skill to V, and then specialization - you will be able to use T2 variant of such weapon. Additionally, finish training support skill to lvl V. Below skill list do not contain every support skill - train to V if you wish :)

Rigs and Compensations skills get their own category. Most of them are not useful - for example EX shield amplifiers are almost not used, so it doesn't make sense to train them. If you use rigs from specific category (for example Shield rigs) - train these. The same with Compensation skills - if you use specific module (for example EM shield resistance amplifier is quite common) train only specific skill.

Rigs

Rigging skills. Train them only if you use these rigs, and you have to - it doesn't matter otherwise

Is that plan good? I don't really know. I find split for 2 different tank types and T1/T2 split of weapon systems to be eaiser to manage than pyramid. It's not complete - it does not include every skill (byt the time you are at that point, you should have good feeling what to train) and does not have EWAR/Tackle/Logi skills - by design, as I find their inclusion in basic skill plan for new players to be mistake. These skills are important - but I've seen new players training EWAR, because it's in the pyramid, before training any weapon skills - which is a mistake. If you want to specialize in these roles - Pyramid Skill Plan is your friend.

My mission ships

Lazy Gila

Cheap and easy to fly - for a L4 runner. Manages to run all L4s without big issues - some of them require manual flying, but nothing really bad should happen. Important to note - webs are super dangerous, as it relies heavily on speed tanking.
