I am going to create another char but i want him to be a miner, i will choose either gallente or minmatar, what i dont want is to have to train many abilities to level 5 in order to use mining ships, so what race university thing combo will give me a char with industry level 5 and other things at level 5 right from the start.

thanks!!!

You will have to train to lvl 5 beacase of the hulk and the script's (or whatever it's called) for the strip miners T2 other wise it will not be a miner char


Edit: is doesn't mater very much the exhumer aren't racial ships

Yes but there is a combo you can go for when you create a char that will give you industry at a very high level i know this because i did it with my first char, what would i have to do to repeat this, it was something about choosing the right university or school for your char.

No characters start with level V skills anymore. That was changed years ago, in the Apocrypha expansion.

These are the current starting skills/attributes for everyone: http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Starting_Skills

As you are an older character, why do you need help with this.

I would do it this way.

If you want to be a miner, figure out what kind of ship you want to fly. Let's say a Hulk.

Go to the market, type 'Hulk' in the search, and open the prerequisite tabs to see what skills you need to fly one.

It's not easy to train to be a miner. Sure, it's easy enough to warp to a belt, target some roids and press 'fire', but the skill trees you need to learn as a miner are as intense as anything else.

I am training a mining character on a second account. She almost has as many skill points as me, and she can STILL only fly a retriever. Sure ok, she has also trained industrial skills, has her navigation skills trained up to V, Engineering to V and so on, but you pretty much need those skills for ANY ship.

You also need drone skills as a miner, refining skills (which are different for EVERY ore), and even social skills to get the price of refining your ores down. You may even have to fly a few missions to raise your standings with that station if you want to get 'perfect refine'.

Yes, there are a LOT of skills as a miner that you will HAVE to train to V. The first of these is the MINING skill, and drone skills to V would be a good idea too.

There is a complete guide to Mining which should tell you everything you need to know:

http://www.eve-wiki.net/?title=Haladas_Mining_Guide

If you want something even more laid back and casual (as far as skills training goes), I would suggest being a station trader instead. You can make billions of ISK a day while docked, flying only a shuttle (or more likely a tech 1 industrial ship). The skill set to be a decent trader is a lot less demanding than it is for mining.
