Hello space traveller.
I’ve been wanting to turn my attention to making some isk lately; eve is a funny game, unlike many other MMOs, you can’t just safely farm and expect to turn a profit, there’s no grinding up to max level, so you have to get really creative to try and advance, or atleast get to a position where you can be comfortable. There are a ton of ways to do this with people you fly with, but very few ways to reliably drum up some money alone.
I live in wormhole space, which is the best kind of place to unfasten yourself, get in a small gang when the pings go out and brawl some ships in relative safety; with a good chance of getting a fight and coming out on top – but when you’re in a small corp, you spend a lot of time scanning out the chain, waiting for prey or running sites. This does not make for a favourable isk/hr.
So I’ve been trying my hand at abyssal sites. I brought up a couple of videos and articles, bought myself a little RLML Caracal and ran a couple of T1 filaments; they are really fun and provide a welcome diversion from spinning ships.
Feeling content that I had learned the ropes, I decided that I was going to build a T2/3 filament Osprey fit…I spent about 125 million isk on this little shield-tanked beauty, then headed into a T2 abyssal site (just to be safe).
It exploded on the 3rd wave. Turns out three HAM launchers don’t do the job. But like everything in eve, I learned my lesson, so I hopped back on to do some more reading and came across this article by Ashy In Space:
One of the fits in there is for a HAM sacrilege, which Lane Davaham assures me is the best ship in the game, so that’s my next step; if all goes well, I’ll try streaming on KrabKast (https://www.twitch.tv/krabkast) – let me know if you’ve had success running T4 sites in cheaper fits, or if you have any tips for a noob abyssal runner!
Till next time,
