Implant Question

Hey everyone,

So currently I have +4 implants and raising skills, my question is are 5+'s worth it for implants? Or is +4 fine? Just trying to figure out if I should spend the extra isk to get +5's or just keep my +4's and keep on going.

Any suggestions would be awesome!!

Thanks in advance,

Do you pvp regularly? If so, mostly in low or null/wh's?

If you don't pvp and lose pods often, then they are worth it (given enough time). If you live in null or wh space where you're likely to lose your pod, I'd recommend sticking with +4's.

Buy +5's when you've achieved enough wealth that the cost is irrelevant. They do make a difference - roughly 100 SP/hour with the same attribute mapping. In 6 months you'll earn what you could get with 1 skill injector.

Alright I will stick with +4's then since my main and alt are in low/null/wh's permanently for PvP and PvE reasons. But will see if +5's become relevant again when I make the isk to do so!

Thank you for the responses really appreciated!

Buy JUST the ones that you are currently mapped for. The cost won't feel like such a big deal, if you lose them.
Make a clone to jump into, if you go somewhere a little more risky. The clone could have +3's or +4's, or whatever you like, depending on the conditions.
You can have a lot of clones set up differently.
