making trading/hauling alt (t2 transport)

Post by 14th cylon »

Hi everyone,

I am asking for advice creating my trading/hauling alt, that i want to get into Viator/Occator. I have 3 months to do it with about a week already gone.

This is what i have so far:
Spoiler
1. Accounting IV
6. Advanced Broker Relations IV (2 days, 7 hours, 36 minutes, 16 seconds)
10. Contracting III (3 hours, 16 minutes, 34 seconds)
11. Daytrading III (3 hours, 16 minutes, 34 seconds)
21. Marketing III (9 hours, 49 minutes, 45 seconds)
24. Procurement IV (2 days, 7 hours, 36 minutes, 16 seconds)
26. Retail IV (1 day, 12 hours, 31 minutes, 28 seconds)
46. Visibility III (9 hours, 49 minutes, 45 seconds)

9. Cloaking IV (4 days, 11 hours, 59 minutes, 7 seconds)
15. Gallente Industrial V (16 days, 23 hours, 14 minutes, 12 seconds)
37. Spaceship Command IV (17 hours, 59 minutes, 51 seconds)
43. Transport Ships IV (4 days, 11 hours, 59 minutes, 7 seconds)

2. Acceleration Control IV (2 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes, 25 seconds)
13. Evasive Maneuvering IV (1 day, 11 hours, 59 minutes, 42 seconds)
18. High Speed Maneuvering IV (3 days, 17 hours, 59 minutes, 16 seconds)
22. Navigation IV (17 hours, 59 minutes, 51 seconds)
48. Warp Drive Operation IV (17 hours, 59 minutes, 51 seconds)

28. Shield Management IV (2 days, 5 hours, 59 minutes, 33 seconds)
30. Shield Operation IV (17 hours, 59 minutes, 51 seconds)
33. Shield Upgrades IV (1 day, 11 hours, 59 minutes, 42 seconds)
41. Tactical Shield Manipulation IV (2 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes, 25 seconds)

Total time: 65 days, 7 hours, 41 minutes, 56 seconds

Already have:

CPU management IV
Power grid management IV
capacitor management III
capacitor systems operation III
hull upgrades IV
mechanics III
repair systems III
My questions are:

1) Any suggestion for that skill list? Am I missing something or taking something unnecessarily high?
2) Any other tips in general with regard to the training direction?
3) If anyone can share up to date and proven Viator/Occator build, that would be great. (To any potential "Well, it depends! What do you want to haul and where?" - I don't know. So far most of my trips are between Amy and Jita, with occasional trip to Amarr through Vecamia. I have tried some planetary interaction in low sec, wasn't very impressed - probably due to my PI skills - I will probably revisit it in the future.)

Thank you for any answer

You should add thermodynamics IV and shield or armor compensation skills for DST so armor for Occator.

If you stay in Highsec, max tank fit the DST. If you do pi in low again you will use an epithal anyway.
