Alt-erior Motives

I’ve created another alt. I won’t say what number alt this is (gotta keep em guessing), but suffice it to say this character is neither Aiden nor the Orca-stealing wunderkinder. For our purposes, lets call him Bob. Bob is about a month old at this point, and currently a member of a fledgling corp that he is coincidentally trying to scam out of some or all of their hard-earned isk. This is what you might call a swiss-army knife “this is my first time making a corp” corp. I mean these guys do it all; mining, pvp, mission-running, industry, research, hauling, grandiose plans for a POS, round-the-world time zone representation, the works! Wow! This sounds like one powerhouse of a corp, except for one small, teeny-tiny, yet glaringly debilitating fact: they have about 7 active members at this point, and that number is dropping. Needless to say, I’m thinking about jumping ship.

Originally, Bob was meant to be a throwaway alt with which to experiment on a few quick scam/infiltration/theft schemes I had. As such, Bob had no skillpoints trained at all. Seeing as I planned on working my schemes using only my wits, quick-thinking, and brilliantly building a false sense of trust and camaraderie, training any REAL skills seemed like a waste of time. However, seeing as I DO get the 100% training bonus on Bob, I decided “what the hey”, I’ll train up my learning skills with the 2x speed bonus so that if I ever do want to use Bob, he’ll be a little quicker on the uptake (plus it’ll help with some screen shots to actually HAVE some skillpoints showing up on a 1 1/2 month old character =/ ). I’m using the standard learning skill ladder found here as described by Tripoli (minus the cybernetic skills and implants), but I’m curious if anyone has any suggestions for using my neural remaps. I’ve never actually used it before, with any character, so I’m a little in the dark about it. Basically, I’m trying to figure out how and when to remap to give little Bob the best (and quickest) schooling possible in terms of learning skills. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

In the meantime, I’ll be looking around a for a new group of suckers….er, corp, and of course, keeping you all posted (in irritatingly vague ways of course). Take it easy. [edit]
