EVE:Citadel dropped yesterday and with it the reworking of Capital ships which introduced a whole whack of new modules and options and I’m not gonna lie ~ I’m lost without EFT!

And so the wait begins… EFT – Eve Fitting Tool

Recently having skilled into a Carrier I’ve been eager to try it out but really have no clue how to fly it or fit it or do anything with it other than use it as a suitcase.

I tossed out a call for help in our Alliance Forums which was answered quickly with some folks willing to take on a Capital Ship mentor role for me and any other Alliance mates interested. It’s sounding like we’ll get things rolling in the next week or so with some training/lessons on SiSi starting with the fundamental stuff like navigation, refitting, etc… and then gear the sessions towards game-play for the reformed Capitals as the new mechanics get ironed out.

I’ve finally finished up JDC V and have had my Chimera built and waiting in my ship hangar for this occasion but now the issue is that there isn’t really too much point in fully fitting it out until EVE: Citadel is released and all the Capital Ship changes hit New Eden.

So be it… patience is golden – for now she’ll sit unrigged, get a few modules to help with some tank and be used primarily as a suitcase for move operations.

Still on a break here while we’re living with the parents and it’s only been a few days but I can definitely admit that I am missing New Eden – staying on top of things via https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/ and http://evebloggers.com/ but it’s just not the same as logging in daily and getting involved.

EVE Updates posted some stuff on their Spring release with some more Capital information and it looks exciting!

Capital Reform: Advances in Capital Ship Design

Hopefully only another week or so and we’ll be moving into our new place and things will get back to ‘normal’… will have a proper den/office in our new home so I will be talking to the wife about getting some artwork to give the room some atmosphere and Rixx Javix’s great pieces are what I’ll be pitching to her, his Frigate and Battlecruiser Print Sets would look brilliant hanging on the walls.

Capital Ships are getting ‘reworked’ and this ‘reworking’ is supposed to be released in the Spring… but what does that actually mean for us Capsuleers?

I’m not sure as there isn’t much solid information on the subject. There are a few posts from CCP on the matter and I’ve been checking on them pretty regularly.

I’ve recently skilled into Carriers and am currently working towards JDC V. I’ve got some Drone/Fighter skills lined up after that but then my skill direction gets a little blurry so I reached out to my Alliance mates for some guidance and asked them what their thoughts on beneficial ‘Capital’ sized module skills to train towards for the ‘reworked’ Carriers would be and they came through with some good stuff:

  • For carriers you will want to train for both shield and armor tanks, as refitting to armor when your shields go down can and probably will be a thing.
  • Capital Neuts/NOS are going to be a big deal, as are whatever Ewar modules they decide to add, though there isn’t much info on this subject.
  • Capital Propulsion modules will also be potentially very interesting.
  • Finally, there are going to be three categories of fighters, Light, Support, and Heavy. No idea if they will require additional skills, but it stands to reason that existing Fighter skills will apply to Light Fighters, existing Fighter Bomber skills will apply to Heavy Fighters, and potentially a skill that doesn’t yet exist will apply to Support(Ewar) Fighters, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the skills that allow Ewar Drones end up being prerequisites.

This guidance gave me a lot of choices for direction and skills to work towards and my queue is now set for the next few months which is super as the big home move is coming up in a couple of days. Thankfully we have found a new home and it’s pretty awesome but we don’t get in until March (possibly mid-February if the current tenants move out early) so we’ll be staying with my Wife’s parents for a few weeks and I’m not too sure how my internet connection will be while we’re there?

I am getting closer and closer to being skilled into my first Capital Ship but as my Skill Queue ticks away we are also getting closer and closer to the re-imagining and clarification of Capital roles… I’ve truly no idea what this will mean for me as I will likely just be getting into the pilot seat of a Carrier when the changes are hitting New Eden so the transition into the new Capital roles will not affect me all that much, they will just be a new thing to learn like anything else I’ve been skilling into.

I have been perusing some fits for Carriers but don’t think that I’ll pre-purchase anything for my Carrier until we know more about the reworking of Capitals – “Patience, patience, patience” is the motto of the moment!
