Right here man.

Just a FYI, there are no Experience Points in this game, only skill points which are "downloaded" into your cerebral cortex(ingame of course
). It takes time and the time ticks down even while you are logged off!

This game isn't for everyone as it takes quite a bit to get setup in order to play the game as it's meant to be played(Getting into an Alliance and fighting over Resources and Territory, becoming a pirate/bounty hunter, etc.)

I'm gonna be a Pirate.
My goal is to get my bounty higher then anyone else in history and that will be quite a feat as the highest bounty I've seen is in the Billions range(that is ALOT of money).

It doesn't get good until you get a good combat ship. NPC missions are okay, some of them are quite lucrative too, but are a pain in the ass if you aren't prepared. Ask for help, there are lots of mature people willing to lend a helping hand, which is what I like about this game. Not nearly as much n00b calling as in WoW.

As for the tutorial, finish it all, as it will provide quite a bit of starting money as well as your starting ship.
Do all the Tutorial Courier missions too, good starting cash.

If you do decide to purchase this game and become a denizen of Tranquility here is a good starting guide to help you get a leg up on the majority of players on the server.

Another neat thing you can look at on the Map view is the number of ships destroyed. You can easily pinpoint the location of large battles taking place between Player Corporations. Some of these corporations are part of alliances who has manpower in the thousands. Largest Alliance I believe has 4000+ members...

I'm interested in EVE, I do however have a question. How many Titan ships can you make? And one more question, can people attack your colonies and ships while you are offline?

Okay, and now what type of Character are you planning on creating? Close Range DPS Specialist?(DPS = Damage / second) Long Range Drone Carrier? Tank? Miner? Frieght Hauler? What type suits you the most?

Titans are massively huge ships that require Billions of ISK(money) and several escorts. I've been playing for two weeks and have not seen one yet. They are used mostly by Player owned corps in tactical battles. I've only even heard of a couple ever being splashed(by asking around). So basically the answer is, as many as your Corporation/Alliance can afford(which is usually limited by the number of people Certified to fly that ship as well).

Yes people can attack your owned structures while you are offline, which is why player owned structures are still the domain of large player owned corporation atm(they are looking into making smaller structures available but they wanna do it carefully as the follies of Star Wars Galaxies weigh heavily on their mind). There are Turret batteries to protect your structures as well. But in reality, very few of these structures are owned by single individuals so that is not really an issue. In order to take out heavily defended Player Installations, task forces with hundreds of ships needs to be assembled, and that can only be done in prime time. (6 to 11 PM EST)

I am still technically a newbie at this game, but I've read a lot about it prior to my joining the game just if your wondering how I know all this.

Thanks for the info. O yeah looking at those Titan ships, you as a newbie should be glad you haven't met one yet.

Vegemite, to start get your Gallante Frigate up to at least Level 4, and get this ship.

www.eve-online.com...

Buy all the other skills as well, like Navigation etc. One thing you might want to consider pre-planning for is something called a Micro Warp Drive. Once you've finished the frigate line, you'll have more of an idea of what type of character you want to do. BTW Don't bother learning Lvl 5 Gellante Frigates unless you're gonna become a Frigate Specialist(EI, Speed Miner, Covert Ops, Torpedo Frig, etc)

deltaboy, actually I WANT to see one, it's just that they don't go to high security space all that often as it's very far from their main power bases, and the players who pilot them are usually too busy dealing with Corporate management and strategic thinking that should I show up, they'd prolly just ignore me, or pod me for spying(remember to update you Clone and Insurance
). I've been thinking of just buying a Shuttle and exploring the galaxy a bit and go places I shouldn't. With a shuttle I should be able to outrun most NPC threats and wouldn't pose a very good target to Player Pirates either.

I want to be a miner (is that a good choice?) What is the best equipment for that?

www.eve-online.com...

Start with a Navitas, and Join a mining Corporation as you can make a lot more money in lower security sectors(and the only way you can safely do this is with an Escort of Destroyers). In higher security sectors I usually mine for Dense Veldspar and Massive Scordite. Mid Level sectors with moderate pirate activity, I mine for Silvery Omber.

Mining is a very good choice for a new player, though it is slightly boring. I am not sticking with it for the long haul, I just want to make piles and piles of cash so I can afford a sweet Gallante Battlecruiser. It's the safest profession in the High Security areas and it's one of the most dangerous and risky professions in the Low Security area's.

Here is the ultimate Tier 1 Mining Barge.

I own one right now, I won't be able to use it for another 9 days though as I still have mad skills to train.

Ive played Eve online with 2 2-week trials. I came to the conclusion that the game was not worth the time or monthly fee. The game does have nice graphic quality but lacks severly in graphic content, the game download is 600-700MB last i knew. The star map is nice though. The two worst things about the game are the time it takes to travel and the time it takes to aquire skills, some of which take a month to aquire. These two downsides are both designed to make the game time consuming, making you pay for more months. I personally had more fun with 3 months on Earth and Beyond, it had much more graphic content and a great storyline. Problem with that game was that you couldnt fight other players. Earth and Beyond was discontinued a while ago. The downside to both games is that there is not much gaming skill required, you read a tutorial, sacrifice your time, and your set.
