“We’ve got a number of great events in store for you in July and August.” CCP cmdr wang said on the Dust dev blog, and with that being said today kicks off the fourth of July triple skill point event for Dust 514. That means all battles will reward you with three times the normal skill points you would’ve earned. The skill cap has also been tripled during this event, which will be running from July 4 to July 10.
