Skill System - EVE Echoes

Skill points are similar to “levels” in other MMORPGs, or “Experience” to level, more precisely. They are acquired at four possible rates, passively, from your clone’s first breath within EVE Echoes.

  • Alpha Clones: 30 points per minute.
  • Omega - Basic: 35 points per minute
  • Omega Standard Clone: 55 points per minute
  • Monthly Combo Omega Clone Pack: 60 points per minute

Important to note-

  • Skill points continue to gather whether you are online or not. This is known as “Free SP” and can be applied from within your skill management window once you put a skill back into the skill queue
  • Depending on your clone status (alpha, omega, etc) the rate at which you generate passive skill points when NOT training a skill varies.
  • Alpha pilots are restricted from access to certain skills and ships (specifically: tech 8 and above). Alpha pilots can rejoice that they are still allowed to access multiple pirate cruisers and various faction ships.
        • If a pilot is NOT training a skill, they only gain a certain percentage of the rates listed above. Example: alpha only gains 15 points per minute. SO: keep skills training and queued in your skill queue.

Depending on your clone status (alpha, omega, etc) the rate at which you generate passive skill points when NOT training a skill varies.

  • Alpha: 50% passive skill train while not training a skill
  • Basic: 70% passive skill train while not training a skill
  • Standard: 80% passive skill train while not training a skill
  • Monthly: 100% passive skill train while not training a skill

Cognitive Neuroscience-

A special skill that CCP has implemented in EVE Echoes that allows for 5% increase in passive skill gain for each ranking. They are purchased in the New Eden store for AUR (and EVE in-game currency, related to PLEX). They can also be purchased on the marketplace for ISK. There is a special, one-per-account purchase, of a 3-in-1 pack of chips available at launch, for 925 AUR in the New Eden store, which is at almost 200 AUR discount. Chip: Cognitive Neuroscience - Teaches Level 5 same-named skill. Chip: Advanced Cognitive Neuroscience- Teaches Level 5 same-named skill. Chip: Expert Cognitive Neuroscience - Teaches Level 5 same-named skill.

Tech Level

Technology level is your pilots cumulative skill points expressed in a technology value. Ships, modules, and skills are all restricted to certain technology levels. Omega pilots are able to obtain the highest tech levels, while alpha pilots are restricted to a specific tech level and below. Alpha pilots must purchase at least an Omega: Basic subscription from the New Eden store, to move past the tech-level alpha/omega block that is in place. There are currently ten (10) technology levels, and a level that is visible in game as “ — “ (for faction battleships)
