With the latest game update, the ability for EVE Online players to remove their own accrued skills through something called a Skill Extractor. These are then used to create a Skill Injector that can be traded or even sold for in-game currency via markets with buyers able to use them to boost skill levels on a character of their choosing.
In essence, Skill Trading is trading character experience from one character to another, a particular bonus for any secondary (or “alt”) characters if a player’s main character has a surplus of skillpoints in areas he or she might not currently use. It’s also a way for any pilot to reassign skills and further craft their characters, accelerate supporting skills, quickly get into an Alliance’s fleet doctrine, or jump into a new ship class a bit quicker than waiting out the training time.
Today's update also brings new camera controls, new seeded skills to prepare for the Citadel expansion and much more.
