Epic mission arcs
Epic Mission Arcs
Epic mission arcs are composed of a series of branching missions. Unlike a standard mission series, epic mission arcs present the player with one or more choices along the way. The player has to choose one of two or more missions at certain points within the mission line. There are several paths through each mission arc, with each branch presenting the player with different missions and rewards.
Epic mission arcs are broken up into chapters. Every few missions, your agent will present you with a choice of two or more missions to accept, which will start a new chapter.
Chapters vary in size, but are usually around three to five missions long. The final mission in a chapter will usually present the player with substantial rewards. At the end of a chapter you are presented with another choice of missions, and so forth until the mission arc has been completed.
Requirements and Rewards
Only the starting Agents look at standings for access to the Epic mission arcs. They will accept standings modified by Social skills for access. Completing the Epic mission arcs will give the player both Corporation and Faction Standing increase as well as some interesting and unique rewards.
The Level 1 Sisters of Eve Epic mission arc (The Blood-Stained Stars) is available to everyone regardless of standings. Completing this arc requires travel in all Empire high security systems. Personal Security Status above -2.00 and all Empire Faction standings above -5.00 is required to travel safely and not be attacked by Empire Navy NPC's.
The Level 3 and Level 4 Epic mission arcs require a specific amount of positive standing with the starting Agents Corporation or Faction for access. The Level 3 Pirate Epic Arcs require +3.00 standing and the Level 4 Empire Epic Arcs require +5.00 standing for access. If using Corporation standing for access, the Faction must be above -2.00 standing.
All Epic mission arcs can be completed every 3 months for a large Faction standing increase with little to no derived standings towards the other Factions. The level 1 SoE Arc allows the player to choose 1 of the 4 main Factions for completion.
Epic Arc Starting Agents
The Level 1 Epic mission arc (The Blood-Stained Stars) has the starting Agent located inside a station. To start this Epic mission arc, travel to the system where the Agent is located, dock in the appropriate station and talk to the Agent.
All of the other Epic mission arcs have the starting Agent located in space next to a Celestial Beacon that will show in the overview. To start these Epic mission arcs, travel to the system where the Agent is located, warp to the beacon and talk to the Agent.
Pirate Epic Arcs
There are currently two Pirate Faction Epic Arcs. These missions differ from the other Epic Arcs in that they take place primarily in 0.0 space and are designed to be completed in small, fast ships. Note that the starting agent may not be affiliated with the faction you'll be working for but the arc will take you to that faction's agents.
