I am trash on Elite, need help.

Postby critical2210 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 2:50 am

Hello, I've been grinding, until I'm 100% Allied and at 100% Rank None. I was trying to do the rankup mission, but every time I try to I die or don't know how do get to the area. I was wondering if I could get some help. the reason I am doing it is because I want to get to Sol, and I want to own a Federal Dropship. I just find it looks decent, kinda like those ships in Star Wars Prequels.

I've been ranking up steadily, though slowly, simply by doing trading missions for Federation stations. I agree, the ship looks pretty nice.

When in doubt.
Drop in and scan the nav beacon in the target system.

For assassinations, not massacre missions btw, currently these aren't considered worthwhile.
planetary scan, planetary retrieval, aka go fetch geo samples etc
And find black box or other type specific cargo.

All need either scanning of a nav beacon or a discovery scanner. After last patch i notice assasination missions need a scan of the nav beacon and won't update via a honk.

You will then get a mission update with a stellar body where a USS or planetary search zone pops up.

If it is a USS, that is short for Unknown signal source btw. its a waiting game.

OneThe ship computer will shout at you when it spawns, which is good since you might be half asleep at this point.
These will spawn eventually and these spawn consistently in the designated area and until mission objective is complete.
So if you need to retreat for any reason, don't worry you won't fail the mission.

As for rank missions they keep spawning so what many does is simply look for a quick and easy one like "the boss at outpost x forgot his cat food, bring him some".
Ok that last could be anything from data hauls to slaves and illegal drugs.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.
