The Explorer Career Agent Missions (are supposed to) teach new pilots the basics of exploration in New Eden. However, the 5 mission story arc does a really horrible job of it. The fact is, most pilots will either give up at this point or will have to google how to probe.

It’s our hope here at Eve Rookies that we can take some of the pain out of this particular set of missions and get you moving on.

Explorer Career Mission Overview

You can start this series of missions out in a corvette, one of the frigates that you got in an Enforcer mission, or even the Venture.

Unlike the other 4 career agent missions, Explorer only has 5 missions in its story arc.

What is the Potential Isk for Explorer Career Mission?

You will earn roughly 1.1 million ISK depending on skills.

Note: when you earn isk, the starter corp you’re in will take a portion for taxes. So if You don’t receive the exact amount that the reward states, this is why.

N/AN/AGet the Proof of Discovery from a Cosmic AnomalyThere is nothing to “probe” or “scan” down in this mission. Some combat anomalies will automatically show up on your Probe Scanner Window.

In the 1st explorer mission, you will need to open your Probe Scanner Window.

Click on the “radar” looking icon to open an icon sub menu. You will want to click on the icon that looks like a flower.

Once your Probe Scanner Window you’re going to look for an “Anomaly Training Site” which is a combat site. Right click on it and warp to 0. You’ll see a training container in your overview that you can burn over to and loot the Proof of Discovery.

Go through each pocket and read about the different type of exploration.
DO NOT forget to pick up the exploration equipment!

Cosmic Anomalies 3

The 3rd explorer career mission is usually the one that new players will rage quit on. In mission 2 you’re given a probe launcher and some probes and now you’re expected to magically know how to use it. CCPlease… this is just horrible mission writing.

Beneath the mission information I’ve left a video explaining how to probe an anomaly in under 5 minutes. Use this for Cosmic Anomalies 3 and 4.
