The Caldari COSMOS missions can seem pretty overwhelming at first. While there are a few good guides that have been published by our fellow capsuleers, none have shown how to complete them in an easy to reference and user friendly way that also includes what we care most about when running these missions: ISK and item rewards, along with standings gains.

My guide is spreadsheet based so its filterable by agent, system, level, standings increase and rewards. This also means you can edit it as you desire since we all have our own notes and information we add for ourselves. There is a tab dedicated to where you can find the items that drop in the various complexes that you will need to complete each mission.

It also includes a Standings Planner tab so you can input your current Social and Connections level, along with the standings increase you'll get from running these missions, so you can see where your standings will be if you are aiming for a goal.

The Mission Briefings are screenshots of the journal entries and it's searchable by agent's name.

Some extra tips:

  • This guide pairs well with Jowen Datloran's guide, which has details about the encounter missions and is well put together. Some information isn't that up to date but its 99% correct.

  • Utilize the MWD + Cloak technique when traveling through low-sec as Ihakana (.4) and its neighboring systems can be bad for you. Going through Ihakana is the only way to get to Otomainen which is where the most profitable agents and complexes are located.

Hopefully this guide will help you complete these missions with a little less hassle and frustration. Please let me know if you have any questions or updates!

Very nice and thanks for posting your guide.

I use a few different guides which I have links to listed in the Faction Standing Repair Plan. They're a bit old but the majority of the missions are still the same. I think having screen shots of the Agents mission briefing helps but isn't actually required for a walk-thru guide, for example the Amarr Cosmos guide I've linked below.

Amarr Cosmos

Caldari Cosmos

Minmatar & Gallente Cosmos

All Factions Cosmos

Anyway, thanks again for posting this valuable info.

Thank you DMC, you are always a big help to the community. I updated my post with the screenshots I took of the mission briefings. I wasn't sure if they would be that helpful but I'm glad I did. It's searchable by agent's name.

Thanks for the compliment.

You did some excellent work on the guide and definitely on the mission briefings. I like how it lists the agents name down in the left corner when viewing the briefing.

In my humble opinion the only way to make your Caldari Cosmos Guide better would be to combine the spreadsheet guide with the mission briefings. Guess I'm just use to seeing walkthrough guides showing a picture of the Agent's info box and mission briefing along with some tips, warnings and info to complete the mission.

Anyway, I have them both bookmarked for future reference. Now if you decide to also run the other Cosmos Agents, hopefully you'll make guides for those as well.
