Getting a Rorqual out of a C4

So I was able to hop into a rorqual in a C4 after the pilot jumped to a safe spot and left his ship.

I jumped it to an own safe and cloaked up.

But now what to do? I can't leave the wh due to the mass. Except for randsom, what would be the possibilities to get some isk out of this? Any ideas anyone?

Hm, thought c4 was always restrictef to certain mass that prevents to warp out? Actually never thought about a c5/6 that might spawn, having a bigger mass.

Isn't the entrance from c4 to c5/6 still limited to 300.000 mass?

self destruct 5 minutes before server downtime.

if you want better payout find some wh group and sell wormhole with rorqual i would suggest to get small/medium pos temporary to store that toy. as long as the said c4 dont have citadel etc.

I google information all the time and am often directed to specific threads posted over the last 3 years. There you are, in thread after thread, year after year. I don't think anything you've ever answered a question or contributed anything to a conversation, ever. What do you get out of this, personally?

Question's been answered already, why should I just repeat what's already been established?
C4s can't have Whs that can fit a Capital. Period.

Give you a serious answer here.

The only wormholes that can take capital sized ships are ones that have connections to one of the following: c5, c6, low sec, nullsec (however c5 or c6 to highs can take freighters).

If the wormhole has 1 connection to anything lower than a c5, it CANNOT take capital ships. It doesn't matter if it's a c4 to c6 wormhole, it just won't be able to travel through it.

Your only recourse is to self destruct the rorq, that'll be all you can get out of it (mind you, if you bring something like a nestor in, you can strip the fittings, load them into a DST, and walk out with probably a few hundred million isk more than playing the dropping lottery)

My name is Jonn Duune, and I wholeheartedly support the message posted above.

No one has said the obvious yet...

If there are Excavator drones on board, find a way to haul that 3,750 m3 out and make about three times what the Rorqual hull is worth!

A highly autistic way to get it out, and also the only way is posted in nice easy steps below.

1. Get on your alt
2. Rind a C5/C6 (for super easy mode, find one with a C4 static)
3. Commence to jigglin' (rolling holes all day every day)
4. Out

Way number 2 (the sassy black woman way who aint got time fo dat non-sense)

1. Unfit ******* everything using a mobile depot
2. Jetcan all of it
3. Scoop with alt
4. Self destruct for dank insurance fraud
5. Salvage wreck and sell it all

I hope youve enjoyed Solaris's guide to common sense.

This doesn't work. you CAN. NOT. jump a rorqual out of a C4 through ANY hole.
We've been over this a million times, move on.

I am still curious if the OP could trick someone into buying a contract for that roqual?

Or... if you REALLY want to keep it...

1. Move into this C4.
2. Stay logged off in Rorqual long enough for CCP to move you to a station (not sure if antiquated).

There's absolutely no way you can get it out of the hole.
C5 or C6 connections? You're still in a Class 4 wormhole.
Stop triggering Jack.

Any 2 wormholes that are connected, that specific wormhole assumes the qualities of the lower of the 2.

A C6 > C1 means its limited to C1 mass from both sides, etc...

Also, I may be interested in buying the wh with Rorq. msg me in-game with an offer.

If OP is still in there, he should wait for the next patch when insurance is coming to all citadels. Then anchor a citadel there, buy platinum insurance, then SD the rorqual. Much higher payout.

If it's not feasible to anchor your own citadel, you could ask the residents for docking rights to give the ship back in a station trade (because no risk of cheating). Then dock, buy insurance, undock and blow it up anyway. (Or, if they offer a better price, actually trade it back instead.)
