Lmao, thanks you two. Just the confidence boost I needed.

ps. IMHO there should be a public channel for this kind of stuff (or maybe there is and I fail at finding it) and a little camaraderie between event mission enthusiasts.

pps. I will be one of your customers sooner or later Substantia, I just need to finish my work in empire. Blink

No problem giving 'Creds' when it's due and thank you both for posting.

As for the Pirate Epic Arc Support Packages, I always refer those to other players looking to repair Pirate standings.


Anyway, I hope you both have continued good luck and quickly achieve your goals.

Duff Man Nex,

You're welcome and thank you very much for posting. It's always good to hear 'The Plan' has helped players, especially when it's helped them twice.

May you have continued good luck and much success.

Question, i've taken a look at the 15 career agent for amarr here: http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Career_Agents but all are in space where amarr empire have Sovereignty, and i have -6.50 standing with amarr empire, so i don't think i can do them without getting shoot at? Or am i missing something?

Edit: Or maybe i need to find missions for Ammatar Mandate, and get under -5.0 with amarr empire through them first?

Edit2: Any idea how long it will take doing missions for Ammatar, before i get under -5.0?

Kallie Rae, I can't really say due to various factors involved and lack of information pertaining to your standings and skills.

First and foremost, do not accept anti-Empire missions and train up the Diplomacy skill to raise your current negative standings. Training the Social skill will increase the amount of standing gained for completing missions. If you're involved with Factional Warfare, best to leave that.

Anyway, using the premise that Amarr is your lowest Empire Faction standing:

After training Diplomacy level 5 and Amarr Faction is still -5.00 or lower standing, hopefully Caldari standing is higher. If Caldari Faction is above -5.00 standing, work the Caldari Event Agents listed in 'The Plan' to gain derived standing increase towards Amarr and when Amarr get's above -5.00 standing, work the Amarr Event Agents.

After training Diplomacy level 5 and Caldari Faction is still -5.00 or lower standing, complete level 1 missions and storylines for Caldari agent located in your friendly space where you can safely travel. After getting Caldari above -5.00 standing, start working the Caldari Event Agents listed in 'The Plan' and when Amarr gets above -5.00 standing, work the Amarr Event Agents.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the answer =)

Well my Caldari State standing is -3.93, so doing the career agents with caldari state is my best bet atm?

Yeah,

I suggest first working the Caldari level 1 Data Centers 'Graduation Certificate' agents. There's three different 'Cert' agents available along with another agent listed on the signed 'Cert' who introduces you to yet another agent for a total of 5 different level 1 agents that can be completed very quickly.

Hopefully those 5 agents will boost the Amarr Faction up above -5.00 standing allowing you to access the Amarr agents listed in 'The Plan'. If not, continue working the Caldari Event Agents till the Amarr Faction is above -5.00 standing, then switch to the Amarr Event Agents.

Don't forget the various social skills listed in 'The Plan'. They help a lot.

Good Luck and much success to you.

Another little question, you can only deliver the Graduation Certificate once? Got to the second system with another agent that gave me the same certification, and sent me to the same npc, but that npc doesn't have anything more to give me, so i guess it's only once?

Kallie Rae,

Yes, the 3 'Certs' all have the same agent name listed on them but all 3 of those Data Center 'Cert' missions give Faction standing increase. The agent listed on the 'Cert' can only be accessed once and only requires 1 of those 3 'Certs' for access.

Basically you'll end up with extra signed 'Certs'. If you complete all 3 'Cert' missions and then take 1 of the 3 'Certs' to the agent listed on the 'Cert' and complete missions for that agent, you'll also meet another agent to complete. That makes a total of 5 different agents that pertain to the 'Cert' missions.

Hope that explains it, if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

Got it done, and got my standing with Amarr under -5.0. Down to -4.50 actually.

Thanks for the help, and for this excellent guide =)

Ahhh, good to hear that.

Now you can enter Amarr space without being attacked by the Faction Navy NPC's and access the Amarr Event Agents if you so desire.

Anyway, thanks for posting and good luck to you.

Just wanted to say thanks for an excellent guide!

This faction standing business is pretty complicated (for me anyway) and without your guide I would have struggled in understanding how to fix mine efficiently.

Your time and effort has been much appreciated.

Question on where to start as I have read so I am actually confused more now since there are so many things to do...

I am a Caldari Character. I used to grind a ton of mining missions for a Caldari NPC and some courier missions with Security missions mixed in.

Currently I rat mostly now for isk, or incursion, or PI or whatever is going on.

This is my breakdown

Social 4
Connections 2
Diplo 3


Faction Standings are:
Caldari: 1.67 (from 0.95)
Ammar 1.24 (from 0.48)
Gallente 0.57 (from -0.72)
Minmatar 0.22 (from -1.11)
Angel Cartel 0.21 (from -1.13)
Blood Raider -0.68 (from -2.14)
Guristas Pirates -0.71 (from -2.17)

I want to increase faction and fix pirate standings.

Where do I start and what it best to do?

Thanks

Chaotic Cannon,

To build up positive standing with both Empire and Pirate Factions at the same time will take longer and requires a bit more selective mission work. The easiest way is by completing all of the Epic Arcs every 3 months.

First, finish training up the various social skills, at least to level 4. For max results, train them all to level 5.

Social
Diplomacy
Connections
Criminal Connections
Negotiation

While training up those skills, you could start building up standings with the various NPC Corporations of the Epic Arc starting Agents. Completing regular missions for Distribution (Courier) or Mining divisions is a good way to build up Corporation standing to help minimize negative standing hits towards the other Factions.

After building up standings for access to all Epic Arcs, you can start running them one right after the other.

I hope this answers your question.

You can always do level 1 missions. Just find an agent for the same faction.

Example:
* Joint Harvesting, an Amarr corporation, has a level 1 security agent in Minmatar space.
* Nugoeihuvi Corporation, a Caldari Corporation, has a level 1 security agent in Gallente space.
* Chemal Tech, a Gallente corporation, has a level 1 security agent in Caldari space.
* Freedom Extension, a Minmatar corporation, has a level 1 security agent in Amarr space.

There are others to choose from, some with better level 2-4 agents. You just have to do a search: http://eve-agents.com/

Hi,

My question is really simple, i know that if i join a corp my standings will only affect corporal standings after 7 days after i join. But, since i am in this corp for several years now, my doubt is if the standing repair that i am starting now, will affect immediatly the corp standings or does it also have the 7 day delay?

If you have been in the corp for more than 7 days, your standings changes will affect the corp standing at the next downtime.

Corp standings are calculated at every downtime.

Note: there is a bug where corp standings are cached, so it seems like they haven't changed when you expect they should. Flushing your cache fixes this temporarily.

Nice to see the plan here joined the Wiki section. Big smile

Been almost a year since I actively played and ran missions, and WOW it's a lot easier now with the snazzy Agent Finder and without the agent quality thingy. I had spreadsheets and what-not before, having to spend time researching and planning out which agents to go to next to achieve my plan of world domination. I did train up to a Tengu in the meantime, so I'm blitzing through missions compared to last time.

As far as I can tell, there hasn't really been any major changes to the standing mechanics has there?
