the cool thing about gone berserk is the loot

I should buy an Ishtar.

Just did another gone berserk and it is a very care free mission and for my CNRs tank triggers really dont matter. The loot can definitely add up a good bit when you bring up the Noctis and loot all the battleships.

Recon missions, take all of a few minutes to do all of them. Heck I do Recon 3/3 in a frig just like the first two and takes something like 5-7min to get 3 missions done. ISK/LP is ok for all three missions combined nothing spectacular but sometimes you get a good storyline missions which gives you a implant worth a lot and these missions brings you a lot closer to that.

There's no great difference between missions. Sure some are a little easier or harder than others, but nothing that makes any one of them stand out. If pushed, I guess I would say Worlds Collide, just because of the small chance of a faction spawn.

After 2 years of running missions I think I've learnt plenty. Missions aren't all that variable, challenging or interesting. They're merely a way of grinding ISK. I rarely run missions nowadays, preferring to do exploration instead.

Hardest mission I've came across is one good point for it.

Working my way around the bug and writing up a guide on how to do it was also somewhat fun (if very time consuming). Still not sure if many other than me have actually done this mission keep hearing people say they quit cause of too high dps.

Lots and lots and lots of bs's. something like 250 last I counted. Nothing quite like jumping into 30 mission concord bs and blowing them all away.

Oh and the fact none of the rats scramble (which is important in low sec) is just the icing on the cake.



I completely agree with you! Most F****** anwsome mission i ever did in my 7 years in EVE! Shocked Can compete with "The maze" 10/10 plex i did a looon time ago (exit the reward).

Tons and tons of CONCORD/Drones high grade BS and A LOTS of DPS like i never see before!!!

Just finish farming one for 4 days. Takes bout 5 hours to do a run.

For me, doesn't seem to have the same bug reported as in EVE Survival. Only the LCO Gate remain inactive for me. The others one are ok (gate activated by putting the key into the container).

Be sure you have logistic + DPS support. Concord tank DMG pretty well.

Operation Wyrmslayer is my second choice.
100% chance of faction BS with juicy faction modules, always a pleasure!!! Big smile

so by your definition the difference between ~25mil in 5 minutes and ~6 mil in 15 minutes is 'not that variable'. by that definition, earning minimum wage and being a millionaire is also not that variable.

Sure, if you want to look at it purely in terms of ISK per hour, there's plenty of variation. Does that make any of them particularly interesting? I don't think so.

You've really just confirmed what I already said. Missioning is purely an ISK grind and not something one does for an engaging or interesting activity.

I mean, if this is just about what mission make the best ISK per hour. Lets just say Worlds Collide, Dread Pilot Scarlett, Recon 1 and all go home.

BR Blockade 4, only mission that ever gave me chills when I heard about the amount of neuting back when I first jumped in a tengu (it was my first mission with neuts involved). Enemies Abound 5 of 5 also, but only cause the first time I did it, I didn't quite understand the spawn mechanics. (warped in, realised I had the wrong ammo, warped out, went for a smoke cause I had like 6 hours to bust a gate with only a few cruisers and BS's guarding it, came back and nearly shat myself from all the webbing and dps)

I would say Dead Pirate Scarlett, but I can't remember the last time I didn't roll 3-5 Gurista EWar BS's in both room 2 and 3...I hate Guristas.

"Tomahawks?"

"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

Mining Misappropriation, easy money use a navy domi and rattlesnake and can hit every ship when they spawn right off the bat.

Gone Berzerk, good isk + salvage ( to bad it don't drop cap boosters anymore )

Recon 1, I kill everything and salvage ( recon 2 I shoot the station to get the spawn ) Recon 3 meh

I like The Anomaly, simply because it was a beautifully written story.

Dread Pirate Scarlet. Take your own gate key to skip the first room, run through the 2nd room whilst shooting a few BC's, gank Scarlet in the 3rd room and use tractor to collect implant. Kill a few BS if feeling bored. Around 20 mil, in about 5 minutes.


I like this one for this method when in a hurry, but since it is bugged and continues to respawn, you can pull 40mil + in bounties and a lot in loot too if you go through a couple times killing everything before finishing the last room

Oh ... second that. Recon is faster, but The Anomaly does the same thing for the storyline mission count and is probably the only (regular) mission that has a little bit of story to it.

Always been a big fan of Guristas Extravaganza and World's Collide. Also did Mordus Headhunters tonight... 10k Lp in low sec is fun.

I've farmed Prison Break in tengu and basi. It is by far the hardest mission in eve. The dps is manageable, but how they drop so much of it on you so fast is what makes it hard. There doesn't seem to be any more bug. Seems ccp fixed it. At least the last time I ran it all the gates worked. Oh I did lose my 2b tengu the last time I ran it too. Couldn't get the basi in fast enough. With the way LP is so screwed up this is a nice mission because there is so much upfront loot.

Well, it's been quite a while since I've done regular missions. Mainly been running Cosmos and Epic Arc missions along with exploration sites. I have to say the Level 4 Extravaganza missions are good but I really liked the story plot in the 'Strike' missions, Angel, Guristas, etc.

So if I have to pick one, I have to say my favorite is 'Kidnappers Strike' since it gives a rather large Faction Standing increase, especially for a level 3 mission.
