Sisters of eve 1.52

Those are my 2 highest standings atm. I am just looking to grinding my standings high enough to do lvl4s. Would it be better to do COSMOS gallente, or Sister of eve missions? (I believe those are the 2 fastest methods available to me) Anyone have any mission tips on where to go for fast grinding?

Well 3 hours and no one answered you so I will give it a shot.

There’s ‘The Plan’ DMC’s comprehensive guide to standings, to look at for starters.

There’s the simple task of Courier missions while training Connections and Social to 5.

But the easiest route I can think of if is one you appear to have already started, Sisters of Eve Epic arc. Last mission will give you a choice of empire faction to get the standings reward for. And for a nearly 3 year old toon I would assume you are capable of doing LVL-4’s solo, so as soon as you complete the Arc pick a Corp with the faction your interested in and begin grinding, I found it takes me about 10 hours to grind most corp standings to LVL-4 acceptance.

Things that keep me up at night;  Why do we use a voice communication device to send telegraphs? Moore's Law should state, Once you have paid off the last PC upgrade you will need another.

Social skills then top it off with a ship that can run available missions in the least time possible.

Then pick a LVL-1 agent, I would recommend Impetus and start grinding, it will take a few hours at LVL-1 to get to 2 and then about twice as long for 3.

train social 3, connections 3, do some of the data mission's from DMC' s plan the go blitz lvl2's and 3's in a ship that packs a punch, preferably something with turrets with a bit of range so you don't have to travel too much.

ishtar with sentry drones is awesome for blitzing standings, light tank with lots of drone tracking and damage mods and a mwd to get out of dodge.

That Standings graph is incorrect. This Standings graph was updated to show current standings : http://www.eve-wiki.net/index.php?title=Standings#Standing_Relationships

You can tell by looking at Thukker Tribe standing with Minmatar Republic. A couple of years ago Thukker Tribe was promoted to Faction status and gained positive standing with Minmatar Republic. Also in the +5 years I've been playing this game, Thukker Tribe has never been positive with any of the Pirate Factions.

As others have already stated, if you're looking to quickly raise Gallente Faction standings then work the various steps listed in 'The Plan' starting with training up the Social skills at least to level 4, then work the Gallente Data Center Event Agents.

The Data Center missions can be completed very quickly which should raise your standing to +5.00 giving access to level 4 Gallente agents.
