Skill Plans

The training times listed in these skill plans are approximate and do not take into consideration either implants or utilizing attribute remaps. Formulation of a custom skill plan using Evemon is recommended for anyone needing more precise information.

Subcap: T2

When training into subcap mining – it is important to train not just the skills for the hull itself, but also skills for the mining modules, tank, and defense. This is a general but robust skill plan for training into Exhumers as well as having the skills to use the appropriate tank and drones for defense.

By the end of this skill plan, you will be able to fly the exhumer of your choice with proper tank and T2 Mining crystals. If you are content with Strip Miner I’s, please feel free to stop after step 52. Step 53 and on is what will allow you to use T2 mining crystals – but also where the skill plan goes “Choose your own adventure

If you only mine in lowsec, you’re a crazy person. To expand on this – Lowsec has all of the disadvantages of both high sec and null sec and none of the advantages. You get neither prohibitive presence of CONCORD as you have in highsec, or the benefit of being surrounded by friendlies as in nullsec, but you’re able to be attacked by anyone who chooses to attack you as you would be in null, along with being surrounded by neutral people and those you do not know, as in highsec. If you absolutely choose to mine only in lowsec – replace the highsec ores after step 52 with the lowsec ores you plan on mining.

Steps 131-143 are general jump drive skills – good to have, though if you’re an idiot, not entirely essential.

144. Capacitor Management IV (2 days, 14 hours, 5 minutes, 30 seconds)
145. Capacitor Management V (14 days, 15 hours, 14 minutes, 30 seconds)

Steps 144 and 145 – capacitor skills, important – get them!

146. Mining Director II (3 hours, 20 minutes, 45 seconds)
147. Mining Director III (18 hours, 55 minutes, 26 seconds)
148. Mining Director IV (4 days, 11 hours, 3 minutes, 16 seconds)

Steps 146-148 improve your mining boosts – for subcap mining ships – not necessary for the Rorqual, but nice if you are mining with others (think about your mercoxit miners, please!) though only needed on one Rorqual in a group.

Please note: Invulnerability Core Operation I is the bare minimum needed to run a PANIC module. You will want to train this skill further.

Another skill you might consider training are shield command burst skills – for better tank. If you use the fit listed in Rorquals and You, you will also wish to train for the appropriate smartbombs.

Highsec Fits

In fitting ships for highsec mining, it’s best to prioritize tank over yield to reduce the likelihood of being ganked. These fits won’t stop all gankers, but they are tanky enough that solo gankers are unlikely to kill them, even when multiboxing half a dozen DPS ships.
