Eve-Online Research Agents

Filed under: Eve-Online — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:26 pm

I’ve mentioned before that I plan to try my hand at invention. I have some skill work to do before I’ll be efficient at invention, but I can still get the ball rolling by signing up with a research agent. I chose Roden Shipyards for my first invention corp because I already had 5.6 standing with them. The other corps (Duvolle Labs and Creodon) would require a lot of standings grinding to get the good agents.

After a few level 3 missions, I took the trip to Alenia to talk to a level 4 R&D agent. My first surprise is that I need some skills which I don’t have to even interact with the agent. His description lists 5 skills at level 4. I hope I only need one or a couple to interact with him. I’ll find out soon. Since I’ll need the skills anyway to invent the blueprints and use them, I plunked down 50M for the whole series. I found a level 2 agent in the same system who I’ll do some tests with tomorrow.

Eventually, I will write up the whole invention experience. Hopefully, someone will find it useful.

  1. What you’ve written so far has already been useful, so I look forward to further invention-related entries!
