If you were to farm LP in the best possible ship, doing the highest payout mission, what is the maximum ISK per hour you can make? Also, what is currently the price for 1 LP if you convert that to ISK?

Thanks.

Sorry friend, but your question simply cannot be easily answered.

1. If you were to farm LP in the best possible ship

The best ship depends on where you are doing the missions and who you are doing them for.

2. doing the highest payout mission

You cannot consistently do the same mission over and over again, so why would the isk per hour from calculating just doing the same mission have any real bearing on what you will actually earn. Furthermore it depends on the sec status of the system you are in.

3. what is the maximum ISK per hour you can make

It depends on a variety of factors. Depending on how experienced you are it is possible to make up a few hundred million an hour, but when you are as new as your question implies I would imagine a lot less. Maybe aim for 30-50m an hour and then see how you can increase that. Even people like myself who would put themselves at 200m ph rarely consistently make that because it gets real boring real quick when you are trying to shave off every single second. They might do it for a couple of hours and then go do something else. So isk per hour rarely equates to isk per day.

4. what is currently the price for 1 LP if you convert that to ISK

It depends on what items you cash it out for. A good target is 1,000 isk per LP, when you get good you might make 2,000 isk per LP, or if you are running L5 or FW L4 missions (whereby you can gain a ridiculous amount of LP) you might have so much LP that you would be happy to cash out for 5-600 isk per LP so you can focus on high volume products.

In short, it really depends on a lot of factors - a lot more than can be defined in a best ship/best mission/max isk ph question.

[EDIT] While the info is out there you will rarely find people saying "go do missions for xyz corp" because they sell abc item which can be cashed out for 2k per LP. This is because if people advertise these corps and items, guess what, so many people go do them they immediately stop being so profitable.

That said, I do see people recommending SOE, although i did hear that even their isk/LP conversion rate was dropping because so many people were doing them (oversupply).

Thanks, how about the LP / ISK conversion for datacores? how profitable are farming datacores.

This thread has the methodology for maxing lp/hour gains, not sure if it covers what the best LP conversions are though, probably going to have to figure that out yourself. https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=501099&find=unread

Select your NPC corp on that side and check the buy prices to find the best selling item on that particular day. Its changing. Few years ago Freedom Extension could give you almost 3000 ISK / LP if you use warp scrambler to convert LP but people found that out and it quickly changed to 1000 Isk/LP. But you still can get 2000 for afterburners.
