A scanner alt will provide you with the means to scan your way out of a W-Space system even if your main isn't there. With further training this alt can be used for K-Space exploration while your main clears the sites. With even further training your alt can act as cloaky eyes, scout and probe much more efficiently.

Preparation

It is important to read this section as it will save you a lot of time and frustrations. Before you even create a character, there are many things to consider: The race of your character, whether you have other characters in the account and if you want to do a neural remap.

Racial Characters

Since slot layouts for exploration frigates change by race, you must consider which race you want your alt to be. Here is a small table outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each ship. All of these ships can easily fly with the skills and fittings listed below so fitting requirement shouldn't be of concern.

Pause Training

If you are creating an alt on an account with other characters, it is important to note that only one character can be training skills at a time. Attempting to add skills to the training queue will result in an error, so you will need to pause training on your currently training character, or activate Multiple Character Training.

Neural Remap

It is recommended that you remap to Intelligence/Memory. This will speed up your training.

Bare Bones Scanner

Since the Vanguard changes, all characters now start with the skills required to fly a bare bones scanner with the ability to scan.

Fittings

Just the Magnate, Heron, Imicus or Probe with a Core Probe Launcher I and Sister Core Scanner Probes.

Basic Scanner

Basic Scanner

This is the suggested training queue for W-Space scanning alts. They allow you to keep an eye on connections for your main while taking a reasonable amount of time to train.

Expand this box to view a Skill queue to use in-game

Astrometric Rangefinding II
Astrometric Rangefinding III
Cloaking I
Energy Grid Upgrades II
Jury Rigging I
Mechanics III


Notes:
  • Cloaking I allows you to use a prototype cloak
  • Energy Grid Upgrades II allows you to use cap rechargers
  • You can remove Jury Rigging I and rig the ship for your alt yourself. You will need to be able to sit in the ship though.
