OOC Preparing for Alpha

OK, hopefully, this will be a big thing and I decided to make alpha characters ahead of time.  One for each race.  The thing is that this MAY ber a very dated piece, very soon.  If they change the new player experience and the base skills shift then all the work I do here becomes ancient history.

I don’t think that I have mentioned this before but that is kind of how my eve writing career started.  A player who had a website asked me to write a character creation piece explaining the difference between each race and bloodline.  It DID make a difference back then.  He paid me for the write ups and that gave me a start in Eve.  Now here I am, doing it again and once more there is a chance that it will be a two month article that then becomes ‘no longer relevant’.

But something makes me want to write this and so I made another trial account and a new character so I could remember where we start and set up the changes.   Then I relaised that I could just hit Eve Uni Wiki and find the list.

So what will My Amarr be allowed to use once the November expansion hits?

(OK so formatting is not my thing)  This is what you will be ‘allowed’ to have active as an Alpha clone.  So this is what you should be making . . . right now.  Think about it.  You train at normal speed right now, alphas will train slower (how slow I do not know)  IF you plan on making an alpha for whatever purpose you would be well advised to make it and start training it with the better speed available, no?

Now if you asre a new player the above list means next to nothing to you so let me make a few suggestions for what to hit first.

Light Drone Operation–Buy it, get it training.  Drones are handy, period.

If you are going to do missions beyond the Career agents?  –Connections

For fitting?  Go to this link and see their recommendations.  I do not like to try to reinvent perfectly good wheels.

Frigate, destroyer, cruiser to max.  Frigate first and then move on.

Look at what you like doing, what you want to do.  Fitting skills are always good while you are deciding but always keep skills on the burner.  Alwas be learning till you max that Alpha out.  If in doubt guns and defense are good as well.  Amarr armor tank and lasers, for example.

Basically, what I am saying?  Plan ahead.  CCP tells us things?  USE that knowledge and make good decisions.

fly it like you won it
