Isk/hr for a C3?

Before I invest in my T3 cruiser. How much isk/hr do you think a solo T3 pilot could make running sites in a C3? I want to know what ratio of sites to ship gankings I would need to make in order to break even with my occasional T3 loss.

I'm guessing 60mil/hr. Sound about right?

Lots of randomness involved. You have to factor in the time it takes you to find a C3 that you can rat in. That means trolling lowsec for an unoccupied one or sparsely occupied one where the inhabitants aren't currently present. You also have to consider which T3 you'll be using, Tengu is a LOT more ISK/hour than Loki or Legion. (Proteus sucks for this, avoid)

However, using a Tengu is also dependent on there being an available supply of missiles for sale at a reasonable price in the area of low sec connected to your wormhole. This is a much bigger issue than you might think, I stopped running Serpentis missions exactly because finding a steady supply of HAMs in NPC 0.0 is nigh impossible. Tengu also risks a lot more ISK than the other options, as it doesn't really work without a deadspace booster and those are hella expensive.

Once you've FOUND the C3 and there are still sites remaining for you to do, 100m isk/hour is probably what you'll be making, assuming you're using a Tengu and can clear/salvage two sites per hour. You'll make a lot more if you have a second account that can loot/salvage for you in a noctis, as a 6-launcher Tengu will clear the sites a hell of a lot faster than a 5-launcher Tengu with a salvager.

With legion or tengu you can solo normal c3 anomalies in 18-20 min (though it is boring). C3 anomalies drop average of 30 million in blue loot so you can pretty much make around 90 mln an hour guaranteed (though it depends how you are handling the salvaging and how quick you are) and up to 150 mln if Bob smiles on you and blesses you with ribbons. I'd suggest finding a wingman also in a t3 as you go through sites twice as fast (yes you have to split the loot but the point is the isk is the same and you are slightly safer).

No, not after isk/hr.

I live in a WH already and have been there for months now. Just haven't bothered doing any PvE while I'm there and looking to start. I'm not into the incursion thing anymore. Just looking to pass the time while there is nothing else going on. However, passing the time in a WH usually means risk of a gank sooner or later. Just wondering what if the sites are worth it or will I end up loosing isk from replacing my T3s too often.

If you are hitting D-scan like a paranoid mad man and you dont happen too be scramed by a sleeper at the time you should never lose a t3 in a site if you know how too run a site if that is your fear. If you have not been running your sites then shame on you friend that's free pvp moneys right there

when i was in a c3 i got sites down to 9 mins for 50 mill on average including salvaging.
after that, it became dependent on the number of sites available.

at that time you might have 3 sites or so every 2-3 days.

which then ment that you could be logged in for 24 hours a day, but theres still only going to be 3 sites to run, which makes the isk/hour moot.

I make about 150m/hr guaranteed in a Legion, that's not dependant on nanoribbon drops.

That's not what the null sex players say about WH!! Of course, how many of them will go in a WH since there is no local?? :)

Roll

If you already live in a WH its easiest to just time it. C3 site will probably average about 50mil (been a long time since i ran them so i might be off). and takes as long as it takes you to run them.

You could have a dscan bot and we will still catch you if the new hole spawns out of dscan range. Just sayin.

Forget the Tengu and grab a Sleipnir for a fraction of the cost.
