Funny how you begin looking at EVE after a few years. I have reached a point where I have now stocked up Billions of ISK and care less about risk and efficiency, and more about broadening my experiences - production has always fascinated me, so what better path than T3... I want my Tengu!
A quick skill check today shows me a mere 30 days from completing all skill necessary for my Tengu construction, including Hulls. This was a bit of a shock. Here is what the relevant skills look like by mid-January:
- Industry V
- Electronics V
- Jury Rigging V
- Science V
- Mechanic V
- Navigation V
- Production Efficiency V
- Missile Launcher Operation V
- Shield Operation V
- Cruiser Construction V
- Frigate Construction IV
- Caldari Defensive Systems IV
- Caldari Electronic Systems IV
- Caldari Engineering Systems IV
- Caldari Offensive Systems IV
- Caldari Propulsion Systems IV
- Caldari Starship Engineering IV
I may end up buying some of the Polymers and BPC's on the market, but I decided I needed a new goal other than simply growing the wallet and the most efficient ISK yield of C2 and C3 W-space. I want to experience the full line, but if I see that researching or reverse engineering simply looks untenable, then I will take the occasional shortcut.
Sidenote: The craziest thing I discovered is that although T3 was born of Apocrypha and Wormholes, you cannot actually assemble the T3 ship in W-space! You have to attach Subsystems to the Hull in-station. Now if there was anything that sounded like an oversight, not being able to completely assemble my T3 in W-space (after constructing all necessary parts there) seems to be obvious.
CCP - I never whine about mechanics, but give us the ability to take the final 1 yard step to the goal in W-space...
