A recent post on the blogroll involving the sale of an old unused character made me think once again about what I’m going to do with Kharai.
My main pvp character is easy. She’s heading into fleets and I even know the required fleet fittings for Northern Coalition battleships. I have 48 days until I fill out the skills for a full T2 fitting, then another month or two to boost some support skills. Until then, she’s a dictor and Battlecruiser pilot. The only choice I really have for the next few months is whether to train advanced large autocannons or howitzers first.
But then there’s Kharai and a new and unique issue for me. I don’t have anything to train.
Yes, it’s true. I started playing well before the servers came up and I’ve finished every single skill in the game! How shocking. Ok, not actually. I just have no idea where to go and I’ve reached a variety of short term endpoints with no clear directions past that.
Kharai was my first character, created back in 2004 and since then her training has been utterly schizophrenic, working a skill depending on what was useful at the time and what vague idea I had might be interesting. A lot of training for something and quitting before the end of the month without finishing related skills. Mostly she’s been a miner, something which really doesn’t interest me all that much anymore. I had also trained for transport ships and took that covert ops cloak for my Viator and trained into stealth bombers and covops frigates. She makes a good scout and can scan down complexes and even ships. Which is great, but I’m done with those skills.
Kharai will be finished with T2 heavy missiles in a few days, which puts her into a nice Drake for earning money missioning or ratting. After that it’s three days to qualify for freighters, not that I can afford those, but it’s only 3 days.
But after that? To quote the Buffy musical, “Where do we go from here?”
