I've been playing since Feb 5 and while playing searching the forums and reading guides on certain aspects of EVE so to familiarize myself with its intricacies.

I also just recently purchased the EVE: The Second Decade Collector's Edition.

One of the digital items I received was the cool Genolution 'Auroral' AU-79. I installed this. Then through my searches found out that the value of your ship, its cargo, and your implants determines your "juicy" factor for whether you are a target worth the effort or not. I just searched through the market and the Genolution 'Auroral' AU-79 is worth 1-2 bil ISK.

So...

Did I with one stroke increase my "juicy" factor by at least a billion (if I didn't just do it now by posting this thread) or do these Special Edition items not add anything?

You just activated my trap card PiratePirate

Jokes aside, Yeah if they see you in a shiny pod like that they will be happy to gank you and by declaring it here on the forums, you are in danger. Cuz they can use locator agents to find you and pod kill you

Don't say, I didn't warn you...

Only if you actually fly in your pod might you get suicided.

I got one as well but people never see it. Just me.

Thanks for the heads up, lol. I just re-read the item's description...

"This implant allows the bearer to operate the Genolution 'Auroral' 197-variant capsule instead of the standard type. Once installed, the implant is a permanent part of the capsuleer's brain (unless intentionally removed by the wearer), and according to contracts with the Genolution corp a fresh copy will be reinserted in every new clone activated by the capsuleer.

This implant is not removed during podding or jump cloning."

I'll just remove it from my current incarnation since I don't really lose it. If I want to see the golden pod I'll just jump to another clone Blink

Bear in mind that ship scanners can't see implants so unless you're flying around just in the pod, people won't be able to tell whether you have that implant installed or not.

If you are flying around just in a pod, well, you're probably a more tempting target gold pod or no gold pod.

Uh... once you remove it, it's gone.

Before you go destroying a valuable item, please look up the values of killmails on the pods.

One public killboard shows both pods valued at 0 isk, another at 10,000 isk and a third values a regular pod at 1m isk and the "golden" pod at 0 isk. These were killmails without any implants in slots 1-10 of course. Since it's naughty to post killmails here I'm afraid I can't link examples, but the above checking only took a few minutes and I encourage you to verify it for yourself.

There are times when traveling in a pod makes sense (or is at the very least unavoidable) but people do it far more often than they should. As Elena said, if you're in a ship, no one has any idea what kind of pod you're in. I recommend keeping it that way whenever possible.

But the description states that it will be available in a fresh clone. Or is that just fluff or outdated info?

Thanks, I checked myself. 1 mil for the capsule and a smidge over 3.2 bil in implants (Genolution C-1 to C-4). Yowsers...

But it is weird that it varies between 0-1mil Question

If you're podded, you get it back.

If you jump clone it goes with you.

If you unplug it, it's gone forever.

Woo! CSM XI!

Lol. Thanks for the explanation. And thank you dinner! Why? Cause if dinner didn't come I would not have put it off until I got back before reading this thread. So not removing it now. Hurray!

Let me highlight something important.

And then your action:

Quote:

Ergo,

You just destroyed the implant and will never get it back.

It says that if you get podded, you are handed a new one without automatically

If you destroy it manually, it's gone.

For what it is worth, when the implant first hit TQ it was valued at market price by kill-boards, BUT they quickly moved to value it at 0 ISK since it is replaced.

At least one site I've seen values a pod at 10k and a golden pod at 40k. I think this is just to assign more "points" in their rating system.
