Any idea of what skills are needed to fly it?
If it's low skill requirements new players have a way to make some isk without grinding the skills for a couple of weeks for a retreiver.

No, they're tier-3 BCs, and that kind of implies BC III.

That actually makes sense.

Great anyhow., means I'll get the opportunity to get blown up in one... (I have a mental block preventing me from learning skills that takes longer than 2 weaks)

covetors are tier 3 mining barges yet still need mining barge 5

Everytime you buy something that says "made in china" you are helping the rising unemployment in your own country unless you are from china, Buy locally produced goods and help create more jobs.

Ore operate purely in lawless space and can do what they want and at any rate who cares since it changes nothing vis-a-vis Tier III BC.

who says the new patch has nothing for miners!


Rokhs have been used for mining for years.
Yes. They cab outmine a Retriever.
Yes. They don't take as long to skill for as a Retriever.

Having tried one, mining with them is a real pain because of the number of mining turrets and limited cargo space.

750 m3 per minute is an interesting number. My main mining character is near full skills. She mines 1867 m3 per cycle when boosted by a skilled Orca pilot. That works out to more than 41 m3.sec with the 133 second cycle time the Orca provides.

typical miner

take a perfectly good combat ship and turn it in to a mining ship, then you dont even add any buffer of any kind so you get popped

Isnt this what the Rokh was designed for?

I've never flown an armed Rokh. Are they the Thorax of battleships?

There is only one problem with combat ships that are repurpused for mining operations.

Cargo space.

You actually have more yield than you have cargo, which means you need to micromanage your cargo by dividing the miner lasers in two cycles, and dumping the cargo between those cycles, lest you run out of space and the lasers shutdown.

The world is a community of idiots doing a series of things until it explodes and we all die.
