EVE Online's Bonus Skill Point Weekend Active Now As Dragonaur Blitz Dungeon Winds Down

EVE Online's had a busy January and it's ending with a bang. From now through January 27th, Capsuleers can earn bonus skill points simply by logging in each day during the campaign. Additionally, the Dragonaur Blitz dungeon is still ongoing, ending also on January 27th. 

By simply logging into EVE Online during the weekend, you can claim up to 75K skill points as an Alpha state pilot, while Omega state capsuleers can earn up to 250K skill points with both Alpha and Omega rewards. That's huge, especially since learning skills in EVE can take literal months (seriously - I've been trying to fly an Orca for two weeks - still have three to go till I have all the skills necessary). 

In addition to the log-in bonuses, EVE Online is bringing back the ever popular Skilling Spree will be coming back at the conclusion of the Bonus weekend, running from January 28 through March 2. 

From 28 January to 2 March, pilots will receive one of three randomly selected challenges that offer either 10k, 25k, or a whopping 50k Skill Points as a reward for destroying NPC vessels.

Pilots will be rewarded upon completing the challenge, and a new one will be offered to them at the next daily downtime. If the challenge is not completed successfully, it will be replaced by another randomly selected challenge during the next daily downtime at 11:00 UTC.

Additionally, this weekend is the last chance to tackle the Dragonaur Blitz dungeon in New Eden. As part of the first Quadrant of EVE Online in 2020, titled Fight or Flight, the Dragonaur Blitz even pits capsuleers against Templis Dragonaurs outcasts in low-sec space. You can check out the full details for the dungeon event on the official EVE Online website
