Still not much going on in EVE. The last few days have just been spent flying back and forth between asteroid belts in Tasti, destroying rats* with my new Ogre II heavy attack drones.
While we’re on the subject of drones, I’m not liking the new drone bandwidth addition. Before Trinity I would have been able to launch five Ogre II drones in my Myrmidon, which to be honest I was excited about. But now, I can only launch a maximum of three. Now, I’m not saying that I’m annoyed or that I want the change removed, just that I am a little disappointed that I am now limited to launching three drones at a time. Although, with that said, three Ogre II drones can do a lot of damage so it’s not like I’ve now been severely gimped by the changes.

I’ve been thinking about leaving my current corporation as the CEO and director have left Hells Angels Inc. to join a non-pirate, PvP corporation in SMASH alliance. When they left, the CEO made an alt and appointed his alt the position of new CEO. Because of that, the corporation has been left with no direction and the members tend to want to do their own thing, rather than try and organise a hunt.

So, if anyone reading this is a member of a PvP (preferably pirate but if not, I don’t mind) corporation that is recruiting, leave me a message and if I end up leaving Hells Angels Inc, I’ll get back to you. See my recruitment page for my recruitment info.

I signed in to EVE today for the first time in a couple weeks. I mainly signed in to download the newest patch and change a skill. But it’s strange, I feel kind of excited about playing EVE; almost like I did when I first started playing. I’m hoping this excitement will only intensify once CCP release Trinity.

So, I’m sitting here with the Market open, searching for the Gallente Drone Specialization skill so I can use Ogre II drones instead of Ogre I’s. The skill plan as a whole is quite a long one. I’m about a third of the way through at the moment in terms of training time. All I’ve got left to train is the Gallente Drone Specialization skill which won’t take too long to begin with, but once I get onto training from level 4 to level 5 it’ll take roughly 39 days to complete. Here’s a look at my current skill plan.

Skill plan for Godlesswanderer

1. Gallente Drone Specialization I (1 hour, 6 minutes, 50 seconds)
2. Gallente Drone Specialization II (5 hours, 11 minutes, 20 seconds)
3. Gallente Drone Specialization III (1 day, 5 hours, 20 minutes, 51 seconds)
4. Gallente Drone Specialization IV (6 days, 22 hours, 1 minute, 13 seconds)
5. Gallente Drone Specialization V (39 days, 3 hours, 8 minutes, 55 seconds)

Total time: 47 days, 12 hours, 49 minutes, 11 seconds
Cost: 9,000,000 ISK

On a side note, in-case you were wondering why I haven’t posted many EVE related entries lately, my corporation seems to have been hit by a bout of severe inactivity. We seem to have gone from a corporation with everyone being online every night to a corporation with next to no one online but me (day or night). Hopefully this won’t last very long and we will be up and running again soon. But, if this does keep up I may have to end up trying to find another corporation to fly with. I haven’t thought about what kind of corporation yet but preferably in the PvP area, although the miner in me is aching to get out and mine some ‘roids.

Update – 21/11/07
It seems that I don’t need the Gallente Drone Specialization skill trained to level 5 to be able to use Ogre II drones. Although, with that said, it’ll be a good skill to have as it increases the damage of Gallente drones by 2%; and that little bit of extra damage would be helpful.
