The glorious Cyno alt

On your way to training a carrier?  It is most likely that you have to think about setting up some cyno alts in the very near future then and luckily I have just the plan for you!  For the unawares out there; a Carrier (and other capital ships) can jump without gates by utilising a Cynosural Generator which can be attached to a ship or a structure attached to a Player Owned Station (POS).
In under 5 days you can have your very own cyno alt that can fly every single T1 frigate in the game, I choose to train up all the frigate skills as you never know what is going to be available to fly when you need it.  I left cruisers off as there is always a frigate within a jump or two for sale.

The training time can be further reduced by training cybernetics and putting in a few +3 implants but that cost is slightly prohibitive to save 24 hours on training for myself, but if every minute of training is worth oodles to you then it would make sense to plug them in from the start of the plan.

Taking use of the skill remappings now available will also reduce your training time, so here is the base build for your cyno alt:

Total time: 4 days, 17 hours, 39 minutes, 24 seconds; Cost: 10,355,000

I put in all the frigate skills, but depending on what race you start off as you will already have the frigate skill trained to level 2.  One additional thing to take into consideration is Jump Clones, setting up the ability to have 3 jump clones will add about 5 hours onto the training time but it will allow you to blip around the galaxy much faster and help you make the most out of your alt.

  1. When I do my Cyno alts I forget the learning skills altogether. That way I can train more skill for other things (Such as clone jump ability) and stay below the 900k clone limit :)
