Hrmm...

I'm still running missions trying to get enough standing for level II's; however, I've decided to focus on the basic Federal Navy since I'm not sure what, or how to tell for that matter, the benefits are for each Corporation.

I plan to run missions in my Incursus Frigate tonight and only do the mission objectives and skip the loot and salvage in exchange for quicker mission completion and therefor raising my standing faster. Can anyone tell me of another way to raise standing besides running missions?


As for skills, I've completely contradicted my last post stating I would train my current skills to level 4 before acquiring more; however I noticed a ton of skills I was missing once I changed the option on my character sheet to "show all skills". I spent 3 of my 5 mill isk on skill books last night. I started the training on each one, but they're still at level 0.


Why did I do this, you ask? Well I wanted to have more 20-45 min skills to level while playing shorter sessions, and switch to longer skills when I log off for the night or any extended period of time.

There are 2 quick ways to raise standings without the grind of missions:

1. Connections skill- get this to lvl 4 ASAP, you can probably skip to lvl 3s very quickly from your current position. This will affect your agent standing.

2. Data centres- there are data centres dotted around which will help raise your faction standing (eg. Minmatar, Gallente etc). Although this won't have any direct effect on your missions, it will help get you into Factional Warfare and it's always good to have positive faction standings in the bank.

Thanks for answering my question; I'll pick up the connections skill tonight and start the training =)
