Assuming I have reprocessing and reprocessing efficiency skills at level 5, how do I maximise my reprocessing or ores I mine?

Does the station you use matter and if so how do you tell which station is best?

citadels have rigs to improve reprocessing rates
and you can also use implants o your character

Bear in mind it's not currently possible to get 100% return on ore.

This is by design. (it gives CCP flexibility to have better refining in the future, without needing to rebase everything)


To maximize your return you want:

A structure. Probably a Citadel (for now). A T2 refining rig for that ore on it.

That structure should be in nullsec or a wormhole.

You should have the 4% refining implant.

Woo! CSM XI!

How do I tell if a station is a citadel?

Rightclick in empty space, if it's under structure it's a Citadel.

In nullsec a Citadel/Engineering complex with T2 reprocessing rig will give you a base yield of 60%, as will a Minmatar outpost with Monument upgrade. Your skills and implant will build from that base. You can ask in corp/alliance chat to find a nearby facility with maximum bonuses. There should be a good selection in Delve.

60.38, a little better than a fully upgraded minmater outpost.

One of my biggest complaints about reprocessing, is that one cannot tell the facilities efficiency for player-built structures:
* Outposts
* Citadels (Keepstar, Fortizar, Astrahus)
* Engineering Complexes (Raitaru, Azbel, Sotiyo)

The reason for this is because they can all can be upgraded, and CCP has no way to show that in the UI info; it is only available upon attempting to actually reprocess something. The reason for this is simple: that's when all the calculations are done.

All of the above player-owned structures have a 50% base reprocessing. This includes conquerable stations, which are not upgrade-able. Outposts are a special case, as the upgrade level efficiency depends on the race of the outpost.

NPC stations can have 50% or lower base (30% is common for research corporations, like Lai Dai Corporation). This information is statically encoded into the game database, so it doesn't have to be calculated, and it available via the data dump. [CCP was supposed to make them all 50% with Crius, but I've had reports that this is still not the case.]

I expect few outposts to be maximally upgraded, as that costs around 14 billion ISK or so. Citadels and EC can be upgraded via rigs, but T2 rig cost is very expensive, so that often only the smallest, Astrahus and Raitaru, are likely to be upgraded.

It is expected that by the end of the year when Drilling Platforms are introduced, everything could change again. Until then, if you don't know the efficiency of a player-built structure, your only hope is to dock and test it, or hope the owners mention the efficiency in the structure name.

After the summer expansion, all outposts will now have a default 50% reprocessing rate (on all items, including ore, ices, ships, ammunition etc…). However:

* Amarr, Caldari and Gallente outposts can be upgraded to further increase ore and ice reprocessing by 2%, 4% and 7% (for a total of 52%, 54% and 57%)
* Minmatar outposts can be upgraded to add further 3%, 7% and 10% on ore and ice reprocessing rates (for a total of 53%, 57% and 60%)

We are also making an adjustment to the plan for reprocessing rigs in Citadels. The earlier plan had two security bands for reprocessing rig bonuses, one for highsec and another for low/null/wh. We are separating lowsec into its own band with intermediate reprocessing rig bonuses to preserve the advantage of nullsec refining.

The new values are:
* Unrigged Citadel (in all areas of space): 50%
* T1 rigged Highsec Citadel: 52%
* T2 rigged Highsec Citadel: 54%
* T1 rigged Lowsec Citadel: 55.12%
* T2 rigged Lowsec Citadel: 57.24%
* T1 rigged Null/WH Citadel: 58.24%
* T2 rigged Null/WH Citadel: 60.48%

Then there are 3 applicable skills, and a 4% reprocessing implant:

Reprocessing Yield = Reprocessing Facilities * (1 + Refining Skill * 3%) * (1 + Refining Efficiency Skill * 2%) * (1 + Ore or Ice Processing Skill * 2%) * (1 + Reprocessing Implant %)

Maximum Yield (nulsec) = 60.48% * (1 + 5 * 3%) * (1 + 5 * 2%) * (1 + 5 * 2%) * (1 + 4%) = 87.52%
