Is there any particular reason that Guristas loot just sucks?

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

To be honest, everyone's loot kind of sucks by now. Additions like the Noctis and MTU's, industry changes including replacing T1 drops with scrap metals and Crius' changes, Drone poop being assassinated, etc. Loot is crap for the most part across the board today compared to back then.

As far as specifics, Guristas loot has always sucked more than others, just like Serpentis and, in my experience, Sansha. At least Guristas still drop something though, Rogue Drones have average bounty, no loot, and **** for salvage. Haven't ran a mission against them in ages. Ran a couple last night for old times sake...I will continue to decline RD offers.

"----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."

Because PVE is mostly shield tanked and Guristas is shield tanked to everyone who wants good PVE mods farms guristas mods.
So they have become so common they are worth little.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

No. Gurista loot sucks because it is the most overfarmed pirate faction in the game.

There is no magic reason behind it other than this.

I think guristas are the npcs that show up in the most space (I made that up, but I think it is right) so they get farmed the most. there are many years of over supply to be worked through, and well, almost all loot is over supplied so there isn't really anywhere for prices to go.

but yea, also nearly all loot sucks so there is that now. most loot seems to be valued at reprocess value.

A more pertinent question: if Guristas loot sucks so bad, why are you still in Guristas space? Straight

According to all of the hype from CCP, Module Tiercide was suppose to make all of the same type of modules balanced / equal with each other, right ?

Obviously the only thing Module Tiercide actually did was remove Tech 1 high Meta Level Modules from the game. Not to mention wipe out player assets in the process by changing all of the existing Tech 1 high Meta Level Modules into worthless Meta Level 1 modules.

CCP should have reimbursed players with ISK at market value for those modules, instead they created an over-surplus of worthless Meta Level 1 mods and saturated the Market.

Good point. Even JonnyPew has openly admitted his vids showcase his few-out-of-a-million finds. Even he has to rummage through a lot of crap drops to get something even worth mentioning on a recording session.

Imperium holdings around Deklein have been most stable areas of nullsec so sov changes haven't disturbed ratting and looting.

As with everything moaned about in the game this is mostly because of Ishtar.

AFK Ishtars are best for Guristas Anoms, plus as above Imperium space is stable so rideculous numbers of anoms get run, hence silly amount of escalations, ergo prices drop through the floor.

Happened to a degree on other factions too, but e.g. Even when Rattlers were buffed they were significantly cheaper than all the other faction BSs.

P.s. drones suck as above

I dont find guristas loot thatttt bad

Its still decent, but getting the XL booster from the 10/10 is really deppressing when it sells for 70mil.

Its mainly because ishtars and tengus can powerfarm guristas, and because its the most populated space (correct me if im wrong but goons frequent that space)

Drone loot sucks even more, but at least you know there's no loot to suck...
