Better Marketing Habits

Last night I was reading the forums a bit. There was a big argument about how many minerals miners really bring into the game. The argument was that missioners bring in as much if not more by reprocessing low level salvage.

I know that most items can be reprocessed. I had done it a few times myself. However, I had not really thought about potential loss and gain of reprocessing my mission drop items vs reprocessing them and selling the minerals.

If items did not sell for a positive amount I just kept them around and tried later. Since my skills are not high, mission drop equipment fills a lot of my slots. My ships are basic things still and finding it saves me money over buying for now. Sometimes, I buy stuff. I don't have that many ships to equip as of yet. I shudder for the days when everything I buy will be what my net worth is now.

Salvaging my level 3 missions is tripling what I am making. I don't feel that I am making that much but I am starting to get into the grove of doing the missions. It was brought to my attention that I can buy and sell items from the LP (Loyalty Point) store as well and not to disregard that.

So I have started to reprocess things and run the numbers. It is always better when the item was not going to sell in the first place. If the item would sell the question becomes how much better would it be to sell it as just minerals.

The positive point of the entire thing is that I can make a few bits more change.

I attempted to run a mission before I went to work. I figured I had an hour.

An hour later I docked with 13% hull damage and barely anything accomplished. Whoops. I think this is a time to take a moment and try to fight smarter. :)

I will finish it tomorrow. I'll lose the time bonus but that is better then losing my entire ship as I almost did.

Time Bonus is 400k isk.

Ship cost is 54mil isk.

I did get to have something of a productive day as I helped a friend work on his mission earlier. I also got to test my repair skills for my new logistical profession I'm training into. As of today, I can fly my battleship. However, its a logistic ship for when I am running around after people in level 4 missions trying to be helpful. My gun skills are not up to par for me to fly it as a fighter itself.

Repair it!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
