Data Centers This is one way that many people never learn about.At each Data Center you can find several agents that offer storyline missions that require you to turn in enemy faction tags to complete.After doing the level 1's and 2's from any of the factions, your faction standing is usually above 3.50. Caldari COSMOS (Old but still works) Amarr COSMOS (See note below) Gallente COSMOS Minmatar & Sisters of EVE COSMOS Amarr COSMOS: One thing to keep in mind with the Amarr COSMOS is that after the small amount of level 1 missions, you will need standing of 4.0 to start the agent chain after.
Epic Arc Missions Epic Arc missions are storyline missions you can do after every 3 months.
Each Epic Arc offers a line of missions, with some great rewards.
You can find the Epic Arc list on the Evelopedia Epic Arc page.
It is golden rule with COSMOS that you should never do any of them without having Social to level V beforehand.
