New Drone changes and Navigation V?

So I've kept Navigation at IV due to the potential for overshooting? I don't know if that is still necessary but I've done it anyway.

Question would be: I assume that is still the case with the upcoming changes? Especially now Medium and Heavy Drones are getting a bit of a speed buff too?

Or is it safe to go to V.

Drones overshooting hasn't been a problem in a long time.

However, I don't put it beyond CCP's reach to break them again.

Regardless, myself and all my alts that use drones have it trained to level 5, as it is a rank 1 skill so fast to train.

Oh yeah it's not so much about how fast it is to train just whether it may cause issues.

Sounds like probably not but may just wait a little. It's one of the few Drone skills I still haven't got to V so no biggie.

Also keep in mind that all drone skills will affect all drones.

So faster travelling light / medium / heavy drones that have to use a larger orbit, will now benefit from increased optimal range from Drone Sharpshooting.

It's cool, everything except Navigation is at V for those things.

Will wait and see if there are any tears from the upcoming drone changes (relating to overshooting...) and make the call then.

Appreciate your responses.

Hijacking thread... so with all the drone skills affects all drones will mining drones will gain new benefits from skills which they didn't had before?

Also with changes to Drone Interfacing bonus what will be the change for mining drones yield from rank 4 to 5 ?

Good question. You should ask it in the blog comments thread.

Unless mining drones receive a buff like combat drones, they will have a lower yield.
