10 sites for every new EVE Online Player

With more and more players joining the ranks of the capsuleers, I thought I'd put together a list of sites that I believe anyone considering playing EVE should have bookmarked. Now, this is not a an exhaustive list, but simply the 10 most valuables sites to help you get through the first few weeks of playing without too much difficulty. Anyways, I wish I had known about these when I started!
  1. EVE Online Player Guide (online version)
  2. New Character Creation Guide
  3. Character Attributes & Skills Guide
  4. EVEMon - A great tool to plan your skills
  5. EVE Fitting Tool - Know thy ship
  6. EVE Guides
  7. Grismar's EVE Wiki - very useful
  8. EVE Ships Wiki - also useful
  9. EVE Files - The greatest of all EVE database
  10. EVE Tribune - To stay on top of the news
  11. Warp Drive Active - Cause sometimes laughing is a great remedy
  12. Battleclinic.com - "The" largest and most comprehensive support sites for EVE-Online
[EDIT: Somehow I forgot Battleclinic.com in there! My bad!!!]

Ok, so that's 11 [EDIT: now 12!], but you can't blame me for WDA, it has to be a regular stop for any EVE player that pretends to know something.

Well, there you have it. This should help anyone trying to learn the complexities of EVE and give himself, or herself, a edge. If you think I forgotten a sites that's been helpful to you when you started, or still is, then please let me know!

As I leave you, here is a quote that sums up very poignantly what it's all about: "EVE is like a sandbox with land mines, deal with it!"

Awesome, nothing like this on the official site, which is where I thought I'd find it.

I'm finding EVE a bit hard to get into at the moment, this should help a ton! :D
