My first attribute remap completed its one year anniversary back in April and since that date, I’ve been conscious of the fact that I have another at my disposal. Until today, I’ve not properly looked into how, or even if, I should configure this one.
One of my “end-game” goals in Eve is to train all available skills. Subject to there being no additional skills released in the winter 2010 patch, together with having sufficient ISK to do so, I should reach this goal with my current attributes in early December.
The remaining skills I have to train aren’t really the best of the bunch and I can’t see me putting any of them to use in the foreseeable future, but it’s a goal I want to achieve and so I’m going to stick to it. Here’s the list of the outstanding skill queue I need to train:
This skill queue will take just short of 162 days to train with the current set of attributes. A look at the remap tool in EveHQ shows that this can be improved quite significantly, albeit with a downside!
Yes, the optimal remap for this queue is to put everything into Memory and Charisma. While I wouldn’t have minded this if the queue was for the next year, I’m not comfortable with having another seven months stuck at these attributes.
So, I decided to have a look at what skills I want to train once my goal is complete. Taking my current requirements into account, this is what emerged:
Lots of time in the missile and gunnery skills and after seven years or so, it should really be time to train those final learning skills to 5! Another optimisation of the remap yielded some very familiar results:
The optimal attributes for the revised skill queue showed it was only three days difference out of almost 14 months to what my base attributes currently stand. Memory still features prominently but it’s not worth sacrificing a remap away from Willpower for 3 days gain, especially as the queue could change at the start of next year.
So, two months after my last remap period ended, it would appear that doing nothing was almost the optimal thing to do!
