Angel epic arc standing modification

Hi recently with the help of a standing correction agency I finished the angel epic arc, hoping it can boost my faction standing with Serpentis.

but the problem is despite my angel faction standing increased by 36% from -3.X to 1.2, the serpentis faction standing has no derived modification at all.

I can't explain this because previously when I grind serp Lv1 and finish a storyline, the angel faction standing did receive a positive modification. Can't it do the opposite way? or for epic arc there is any mechanic which I didnt realize? I just need a positive serp faction standing so bad...

Probably because epic arc standing reward does not genereate derived standings at all.

You don't get standing hits from opposing factions, but you don't get and increase from friendly either.

Just checked, and it's true for other epic arcs (completed the Caldari one recently and got no increase to Amarr standings at all)

thank you. I post a support ticket to GM. But if you did't get the Amarr standings probably that is how the mechanics work.
:( almost 250 Lv1 missions in one week, need a life now.

Well, the Epic Arcs will incur some negative standing hits for aggression / ship kills, but the amount is small when compared to the amount of positive standing gained for completing those arcs.

If you already had bad negative standing with Angel Cartel Faction, then completing the Angel Epic Arc should have taken that standing up close to neutral, especially with the various Social skills trained up.

Now if you complete the 1/2 dozen or so Angel Cosmos Agents then you'll quickly have access to high level Angel Agents. Working the Angel Cosmos Agents will give access to high level Angel Agents as well as incur derived positive standings towards Serpentis.

Of course you'll also incur derived negative standings towards their enemy Factions.

Anyway, shouldn't take too long working regular high level Angel Agents in order to gain access to high level Serpentis Agents. The steps are basicaly outlined in 'The Plan'.
