I’m trying to grind a standing from a -5.5. It’s not an agent standing nor a corp. standing. It’s the level above a corp. I guess faction standing?
Anything below -2 and I can’t run anything above a level 1 mission. I have someone offering to let me go on level 4s with him (he takes the level 4 from the faction I can’t get missions from). Would this be a good way to get faction standing back? Or is it still gonna suck, and is the only way to do this is something else, i.e. COSMOS missions or whatever else?
I already knew about The Plan. The thing I’m proposing to do (go along on level 4s with someone else) is much easier for me to do than The Plan. In case someone knows (I’m hoping someone does), I’m asking if this would work, and how well it would work?
You could also just get a new alt account and start from 0, and run the missions with the bad standings char. That’s what I did and after a few months I had trained up the alt to a proper mission ship and got amazing standings.
What about the storylines? I did 2 L1 storylines yesterday for an empire faction and they improved my standings from -5.03 to -4.90.
Umm, if you had actually checked out the Faction Standing Repair Plan you would have seen there are epic arcs available for most of the Pirate Factions.
There are two different level 3 Pirate Epic Arcs - one for Angel and one for Guristas. Each one has 3 different starting Agents so they’re fairly easy to access.
The level 4 Amarr Epic Arc has an option to complete it for Sansha and the level 4 Gallente Epic Arc has an option to complete it for The Syndicate.
Serpentis and Blood Raiders are the only ones that would require grinding regular missions to get Storyline offers for Faction standing increase.
Train up Diplomacy to raise your negative standing. Train Social to gain increased amount of standing for completing missions and train Criminal Connections to increase positive standing with Pirate Factions.
