Going from L2 missions to L3 missions

Hi all,

New player ( about 3 weeks odd ) but I have played EVE back in the day ( When PLEX was about 350 mil ).

I’m currently on Alpha probably going Omega.

My Question:

I’m currently doing L2 missions for Caldari Navy. Security missions. How do I move over to L3’s because my standing with a L3 agent isn’t high enough.

I’m grinding L2’s and my standing is increasing with the current agent, but how do I increase standings with the future L3 agent?

Is there a formula where you do x-amount of missions for Y-agent and that in turn up’s your standings for the L3 agent?

Thank you

You have to continue missioning to increase your standings. When it reaches 3 you’ll have access to lvl3 missions

Running missions for a corp will raise your standings with that corp. When your corp standings hit 3 you will be able to run Level 3s for that corp. Also, every 16 missions you will receive a storyline mission. This mission will raise your faction (Caldari) standing. When your faction standing is 3 you will be able to run Level 3’s for any Caldari corp.

EDIT - This might help:

As the others said, you need to develop sufficient Agent, Corp, or Faction standing to progress. The easiest way to get there is to just keep running the L2s with your same agent until the Corp standings get high enough.
Or you can find someone who already has the standing, and partner up with them. Since you’ll share in their gains, you’ll start to get standing with that L3 agent they used. And you could end up qualifying with that agent before you did with the Corp at large.

The question is pretty much answered already, but just to add something- it would be worthwhile to train up some social skills, starting with Social itself:

This will increase the standings gains that you get from the missions you are running, so it will decrease the grind by quite a bit.

look up ‘faction standings repair plan’

Great ways to get faction standings fast.

Also, do the Sisters of EvE epic arc. It is designed for beginning players and will get you a few ships, some isk, and a nice chunk of faction standings of your choice at the end.

Assuming both agents are Caldari, you can run missions for the Caldari career agents (there are 3 sets) Each set will boost your Caldari standing by 7.5% .

Run the SOE Epic Arc and choose the Caldari commander for an 8% standing boost.

Train the social skills as far as you can - each will give yo a standing boost.

As mentioned by @J_Connrad, once you have +3 standing with Caldari State - you can run level 3 missions for any Caldari corporation.

For a super quick boost to both Caldari Faction standing and Caldari Navy Corporation standing at the same time, there’s a few Data Center and Cosmos Agents available.

Their missions can only be completed once in the life of the character for a large corporation and faction standing boost. There’s different levels of Agents available, the one’s listed here are just a few low level ones for starters.

Data Center ‘Tag’ Agents

Agent = Vaktan Sido
Level = 1
Corporation = Caldari Navy
Mission = Trade (3x Guristas Copper Tag)
Location = Ahtulaima System (Celestial Beacon)

Agent = Rokuza Taman
Level = 1
Corporation = Caldari Navy
Mission = Trade (3x Guristas Copper Tag)
Location = Saikanen System (Celestial Beacon)

Agent = Peeta Waikon
Level = 1
Corporation = Caldari Navy
Mission = Trade (3x Guristas Copper Tag)
Location = Kamokor System (Celestial Beacon)


Cosmos Agents

Agent = Mika Estuya
Level = 2
Standing Required = +2.00 Faction
Corporation = Caldari Navy
Mission = Encounter (3 part series)
Location = Vahunomi System - Cactus Mill Lookout (Celestial Beacon)

Agent = Jali Tanaka
Level = 2
Standing Required = +2.00 Faction
Corporation = Caldari Navy
Mission = Encounter (3 part series)
Location = Vahunomi System - Cactus Mill Lookout (Celestial Beacon)


EDIT:

With Social skill and Connections skill trained up, completing those 3 Data Center missions first should give you plenty of standing to access the 2 Cosmos Agents which, when completed, will give you standing to access high level Agents.
