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!

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

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
