Career Arcs - Mission Guide Index - Eve Online

Updated on January 11, 2014
The Eve Career Advancement window.
The Eve Career Advancement window.

This guide serves as an index for the five different beginner career arcs and the guides for each of their missions in the MMO video game, Eve Online. These sets of missions are designed to introduce new players of Eve into the concept of professions, setting them up with skills and helpful items along with serving as a more advanced tutorial.

Finding Your Career Agents

To find out who your career arc agents are, you can open the help menu with either the neocom button or F12 and scroll down until you see the Career Advancement option. Click on the "Show Career Agents" button to see a list of your 5, one for each arc, and where they can be found. There is a set of 5 agents for each race and blood line of that race, making 12 sets in total. Although they won't be listed in your career window, you can optionally get these arcs through one of the other agent's that offer them.

Tip: You can repeat each set of 10 missions, once with each agent for that arc, thus players can find one of the career agent systems they have yet to complete to do everything over again. Considering the storyline missions are normally once out of every 16 normal agent missions and each 10th mission of each arc gives faction standing, this can be a slightly faster way of gaining standing with an empire you are interested in working for.

Note: Since the Caldari set are the most popular, the videos will cover the missions from that empire, however notes will be made where there are differences for other faction's missions.

Military Arc

The Military arc of Eve Online's career missions, serves as the aspiring combat pilot's first introduction to serious fighting and fitting strategies. These tasks will progressively serve you more challenging (albeit still relatively easy) and diverse tasks that prep you for PVE and even some PVP combat. This career arc will lead into the Advanced Military Career arc upon completion. Finally, the rewards also serve to outfit you with your first few combat ships and appropriate modules.
