03) EVE Tutorial

Just before you finalise your character creation you will be given the option of starting in space or in a station. I highly recommend starting in space as this will allow you to begin the tutorial immediately.


As you finalise, it will ask you if the portrait you have chosen is what you want as you can’t change it later. Don’t worry, you can change it later, as well as certain aspects of your character, such as hair style and tattoos etc.

You will then appear in a system controlled by your race. So if you chose Amarr, you will appear in an Amarr station in an Amarr sector of space.

Now, the tutorial window will pop-up and proceed to guide you through some EVE basics, as you can see in the pop-up screen below on the bottom-right:

You will also receive a EVE Mail tutorial notification mail providing you with more information:

Follow this tutorial and READ EVERYTHING.  Seriously, just reading through this stuff clears up a lot of confusion and really gives you a good basis for the rest of the game.

The tutorial isn’t that lengthy, but it leads to the career missions, which are very important and will teach you more about the game and the various roles/careers you can partake in.

I advise also going through this section on the EVE wiki: http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/The_Basics
