EVE Online Devs Dish About 'Skills on Demand' & Changes Coming to the Entire System

EVE Online Devs Dish About 'Skills on Demand' & Changes Coming to the Entire System - MMORPG.com

The EVE Online site has been updated with a new dev blog that lays out some big changes coming to the Skill System, particularly with regard to the skill training system to make it simpler and more convenient. Players will still obtain skillpoints through gameplay that are "fed into a specific skill to improve the specialization", but the way core training skills will be obtained will be through "Skills on Demand".

 

The largest part of this change is the fact that all core skills will now be purchasable directly from the character sheet for ISK. Rare skills that are not seeded on the market and are only available through the completion of in game content will not be available, but the skill sheet will provide a market link for them.

This new system will make sure that the old core mechanics of seeding and injection remain in place – if you don’t want to use skills on demand, then you can continue to pick up skills just the same as you have done for the last sixteen years!

Skills that are sold via the character sheet will also have a percentage mark-up in ISK that makes the skill more profitable when trading.

Other conveniences will allow players to hover over a particular skill on the character sheet and see the price to purchase it or to train it. Players will also find changes to the base price of all skills.

Devs are looking for feedback as players try out the new system, so head to the EVE Online site to check out the full blog.
