    Giving Dust another blast..

    So dusted off the PS3 done the 6Gb of updates and found that I had a character that had accumulated 15M Sp unallocated skillpoints. Don't want to fuck around is there a basic skill plan laid out somewhere?

    Sponk whats your Eve -> Dust conversion rate?

    Eve to dust is 7:1. Hmm 15 million skill points is a fair chunk but still not a lot of room for mistakes, so you'll need to specialise a bit. What kind of build did you want? Heavy, assault, scout, logistics, tanker, pilot, etc.

    Within that, shield or armour? Long range or short? Are you actually good at button mashing or do you prefer fully automatic?

    Dust is actually in a good place with regards to balance. Not much can be done about input controls but CCP Rattati and Logibro have done a lot of balancing work based on actual metrics. No news about on PC, but Dust has been getting some more development time so it's possible it has been shelved or some bits are being back ported.

    OK so minmatar scout is pretty hard mode, but straight forward. You need whatever skills you need for complex damps, advanced cloak, complex shield extenders, complex whatever it is that boosts run speed, and prototype knives and combat rifle. Oh, and minmatar scout V. If you have any left over, round out the EWAR passive skill tree, then pick up advanced mass driver and minmatar medium suit so you have a heavier alternative. Oh, and standard remote explosives and drop uplinks might come in handy, just bear in mind equipment bandwidth limits.

    Played a bit last night, came to conclusion I need ISK, how do we do this?

    Other than that, it's still shit with the controller but I've scored some hits/kills. Wat skills would be best for sniping and ocassional brawling? Invested in Amarr suits atm, got cloak 5 and other little stuffs.

    Cheers.

    1. Send any amount of isk to my Eve alt
    2. email me with the name of the dust character you want to send isk to
    3. I send that character Dust isk according to the exchange rate of the day (which is currently 7 Eve->1 Dust)

    Sniping and general stand-off shooting is a Caldari thing, so Candari commando with its bonus to alpha damage is where the snipers tend to go. You can also brawl with them if you fit rail rifles (or assault rails). You'll have shit sensor strength since it's a heavy suit, but that's fine, because all characters under 12M SP have shit EWAR skills anyway.

    So something like

    Advanced Cal-mando
    assault rail rifle (militia if necessary)
    el-cheapo sniper rifle

    shield extenders or rechargers
    whatever the low slot shield mod is

    Isk sent.

    Amarr suit is very good, but only with scramblers and lasers. If you're really keen you can buy a respec but it's probably something like ten bucks.
