Hello everyone out there.

I just wanted to hear if any of you got experience from pve in drone regions.
How much can you make?
What ships should I use if I can fly amarr ships except t2 battlecruisers and t2 battleships?
I also think a nightmare is too expensive for me to afford right now.
Can I make more than in my t1 fitted naga which get 20mil/tick?

The real qustion here is why you would want to head out to the drone region.

I mean the new drone drops are ok but that's realy about all it's go going for it over other 0.0 space.

Not many ships are going to spend alot on drone mods.

Drones in and of themselfs are still lacking as a main soures of dmg over other weapon systems on ships smaller then capital.

Don't get me wrong I love drones.

But there is still no drone hardwiring support.

Still no dmg rig other then Sentery.

And CCP likes to kick drones in the teeth realy hard from time to time as well.

Finaly drone bays run out fast and little recouse for reloading your drone bay mid battle.

Is it a rock point a lazer at it and profit. Is it a ship point a lazer at it and profit. I dont see any problems here.

Highsec missions>drone 0.0. Sad truth.
They got no drop, they have usual bounties, their salvage is nothing to write home about. Their mods suck balls and you will becoma a gandpa before getting one, also noone buys them after retribution, and their exploration sites have nothing to offer but T2 salvage.Actually thats the only resons to consider drones, if you need LOTS of T2 salvage. Now... why would you?
If you are still inclined to try, any T2 omni tanke amarr boat will melt them. T2 for covering explo kin resists which are drones largest damage.

It is not that im considering to move to drone regions ^^ I live just on the border of Gurista (-0.8) and 2 jumps from there i can rat drones (-1.0) So i was just curious if i could make more isk than i can by taking Gurista Forsaken Hubs in a Blaster Naga with t1 guns :-)

Running drone hordes in drone region with an upgraded system which would have AT LEAST 5-6 hordes at any one time.

Ship: Thanatos + 14 Templar fighters

Took me 14 minutes to clear one site

Each wallet tick every 20minutes was 28-42 Million.

Only did this once a night for about 1.5 hours
