Teasing the Noob doesn't always work out

I got into a motorcycle wreck last night so that means plenty of time over the next few days to play Eve! (I'm okay and it wasn't my fault).

While I have not yet found another 350mil isk skill book, I have found something even better. I found a 4/10 DED Complex and it dropped a stack of high grade shiny mods to the tune of 1.3bil isk. That is split between me and my corp mate. I found the 'plex, he tanked the 'plex, I assisted him in clearing the plex, so we split the loot.

So I will gain about 500-700mil isk from the sales. I am quite happy. That will bring my isk earnings for the week to over a bil.

I have a little system loop that I do for scanning. Scanning isn't fast for me yet. I have to hunt down the sites, bookmark the entire system, hop a combat ship over, do the site and open the containers while keeping my eye out for local and such things. Then drag the items out. I'm willing to take the smaller sites that others ignore.

I was in my alliance's home system scanning when I found a complex. I asked them if anyone wanted it since they were hovering about not doing much and it was right in their system. They said sure because it was named Dirty Site and when I went to give it to them, said they were kidding. The site sucked and not to believe anything they said. Just good natured trolling teasing.

Teasing. I know I'm the only one excited about my new skills. Still, just say no thanks. That's fine, I learned my lesson and didn't offer them anything else.

At the end of that scan the 4/10 complex popped up at the same time my corp member whom I did a previous 4/10 with came up. I asked him if he wanted to do it and he said hell yeah. So we cleared it and popped out with a 1.3bil in Type A and Type C mods.

I am very, very glad that I am getting into scanning. Word is that CCP is going to nerf NPC loot a bit. They are dropping drone minerals and replacing them with bounties. Bounties may be cut across the board (I'm expecting it). There is rumor about lowering the tag amounts at the LP stores and they are going to take T1 mods out of drops. All this means that my salvage income will tank a good bit.

Thankfully I am advancing. I am enjoying the fact that I can do more for myself when it comes to my income. I was not earning very much when I was running missions. I've not put the time into running level 4 missions because I have so many other things to do. The exploration thing works quite well for me with a little bit of thought. Some, I have to skip, but all in all I'm easily pulling 50-100 mil out a day from the sites. Some days, like today, I find nothing. I did find two in my home system. One I could not do alone and one that someone else had started.

But I'm sure I'll find something and even if I do not, that is fine as well. It can't be every day which is what keeps it interesting.
