Proof that Eve is Short for Evil

28 Jul

So there I am, minding my own business…

I just hopped on to check skill training and the market.  Just a few minutes before bed…  Joy, all my kernite sold.

Oh, what the heck, I’ll pick up a few backfill skill books so I can train the short ones when I’m on.  What to get, what to get.  Well, I needed Mining Upgrades for the MLU, then I was thinking about how I’m a bit light in CPU on the Osprey, so maybe a co-processor would help and that needed Electronics Upgrades… and then I wanted to try Scott’s suggestion to get Social going for better access to missions, etc.

Long story short, not a 15 minute session.  And then after all that, I return to base and find that now I can fit my MLU and the last Miner II (I had two IIs and one I until now) on my Osprey.  Well, I’ve got to see how it improved my yield per cycle.

I hop out to a nearby belt and what do I see:

Sweet Jeebus.  And it was my bedtime…  At least my mining output increased from 266 units per cycle to 315.  18% increase per cycle.  Not a bad pop indeed.

Now if I only had time to get through all those roids…

    Where did you find so much Kernite?

    An Osprey would have taken its sweet time on all those roids. That is a crazy amount though, belt must have just spawned.

    Make friends with level 4 mission runners. There’s a multi-part mission and the first part has 16xKernite, 16xOmber, and 18xScordite ‘roids in the mission deadspace. I pulled that one yesterday and advertised in corp chat for the free ore as I just wanted to mine just a bit of Kernite for myself. Sadly, I got no takers and had to complete the mission and despawn all those lovely ‘roids after I mined out my Kernite.

    You people and your EVE… actually, I’m just kind of sad that I don’t get it.

    @JoBildo: You will one day young one.

    @Ryan: I’ll shoot you a mail to Marakhan in game. ;)

    @WN: Good tip. I think that’s the one Wilhelm was trying to get me to tag along with or a similar one.

    It is actually the first pocket of the second mission of a two-parter that is available as both level 3 and 4. The initial mission is called “The Rogue Slave Trader.”

    I lucked out last Sunday and actually had time to cart off all 400K units of Omber as well as a good chunk of the Veldspar. (I always need tritanium.) It is nice to have a Hulk on call.

    @JoBildo: It seems to be a zen thing… you must first sufficiently not get EVE before you can then come around and get EVE. A number of people I know, including myself, have played, gone away, then come back only to then start to get a claw hold on the game.

    I think you should have actually just stayed up and finished mining. You would have gone to bed happy :)

    Wilhelm,

    I was referring to the first part of Lv4 Enemies Abound. I really hated having to despawn all those lovely Kernite ‘roids but I would’ve had a heck of a time mining them all out with my Osprey. Maybe I’ll fit out a Rokh for future mining ops as soon as Caldari BS trains to 3 later today.

    @WN, Ah, I have not seen that mission. I just saw the omber part and P@tsh@t’s comment and my mind made the leap to the mission I just did.

    I’ll have to keep my eyes open for Enemies Abound now that I just hit level 4 missions with a new faction.

    I swear it’s only us miners that have a specific tab called rocks that shows all asteroids in the local grid. We use it when we mission just to check if it might be a good mission to leave on for a week.

    If you really want to cry CK, go find a Sancha Minor Annex and managed to get to the second room. Then check roids there. You will cry when you realize you have no idea what will cause the de-spawn of the hidden site and that you’ll need a full blown op to even have a chance at getting out all the rocks before downtime.

    Finding that out as my 2nd Cyclone was going down in flames was truly heartbreaking. (bring a really good tank and some logistics when you tackle that 2nd room). Yes there are scrambling frigates in there.

    Sorry CK, no photoshop here. Just one short hop out from a station. No mission, no voodoo, just crunchy kernite goodness.
