The Quantum Rise update for EVE Online is out with just shy of a billion new things in it and a bright red splash screen. The servers are up and seem to be stable, so CCP seems to have gotten that routine down at least.
One of the new things in the game is certificates.
Certificates appear to be somewhere between WoW achievements and EVEMon in usefulness. They are supposed to be a somewhat more quantifiable reflection of what all your millions of skill points really mean. Having just passed the 27 million skill point mark, I was keen to see what certificates I would get.
I logged in, went to my character sheet, clicking on the new certificates tab, and saw… nothing.
Now I knew that COULDN’T be right.
So I went further, into the Certificate Planner, and found, at the bottom of the window, a button labeled, “Claim All Certificates.”
So I did! And I was rewarded with 49 certificates!
Of course, now I have a pile of certificates to go through to see what I have. They appear to come in four flavors, which are:
I have no elite certificates, but improved versions of Active Shield Tanking, Passive Shield Tanking, and Business Mogel.
You appear to need a lot of skills at level V to get to Improved, as I thought I would be a shoe-in for Missiles, but I am three level V skills shy.
Interesting stuff, but I’m still annoyed that they took the +2 warp strength off of my Crane and put it on the Bustard.
