At around 6am yesterday my main character moved past 100 Million Skill Points. I would have liked to have watched the number tick over, or marked the occasion in some way, but instead I was busy getting ready for one of my rare visits into the Office. How inconsiderate of my boss to pick that day of all days to fly in.
In line with my Jack of all Trades approach, he has 345 skills, 94 of them at level V. The three highest SP categories are Spaceship Command (37.4M), Gunnery (13.9M) and Missile Launcher Operation (6.8M)
As I recently remarked, he can fly all but 7 ships in the game (he covered off the Anshar earlier today). He can also fit all but a handful of modules.
He would have around 20B ISK in cash and assets, with more sitting on a number of other accounts. His biggest source of income over the last year though has probably been inflation – where he has sold or turned over assets which through little planning have ended up worth much more than he purchased them for. For example while cleaning up a mission base last weekend he found tags which he had purchased years ago for around 36M, which have a current value of 450M.
He operates around a number of bases, most of which have a jump clone associated with them.
. A Mobile Mission base – consisting of an Orca stocked with everything you might need for running missions
. A Mobile Exploration base – consisting of another Orca stocked with everything you might need for Empire and Low Sec Exploration
. Two stations, one in Low Sec, one in NPC 0.0, where his Carrier and related supplies are based
. A separate NPC 0.0 base with additional ships, to give more flexibility to be able to undock and join fleets
. A static Mining and Hauling base where the Corporation operates, including another Orca
. The Wormhole roaming T3
If you look at Chribba’s EVEBoard ..
.. you’ll see there are at least 4,000 pilots registered with the service with more than 100M SP, with the current highest being 196M! (I am regularly sitting in +3 implants when in 0.0 or Wormhole space, and I chop and change between skill trees, not always maximising my stats to suit. (You only get so many re-specs.))
Aside covering the skills for the Ark, Nomad and Rhea (which will be done in a bit under 3 weeks), he doesn’t really have any major goals at the moment. That is something I need to rectify. I want to continue the Exploration (both the high sec and wormhole ones), but this is on hold until I work out a way to comfortable run two clients on this PC again. (Or CCP re-tunes the memory usage to allow it, or I organise the new hardware I had already planned.)
