If you're talking about the Restoration Node, those need to be destroyed immediately. All the other ones can be ignored until you run out of moves and it's blocking a path. If you find the core and there's a defense system that's weakening your virus strength (can't remember the name of it...), destroy that before the core.

Also, always use the repair wrenches as there's no cap to coherence. The rootkits and other tools should be saved if you encounter the restoration nodes which are a pain to take down.

well the virus inhibitor ones (the ones that half your virus strength) should also be destroyed immediatly because if you have 2 on the field with no beneficial stuff to get rid of them the can is toast.

but since i have lvl 5 in hacking and with the numbers added when you click on a node i still have to fail even one attempt... granted i only do exploration after i killed an explorer and the site is "tainted" :)

thankyou everyone for understanding me, and yes I do destroy them immediately, but dont you just hate that should when you meet a bug during hacking the tunnnnn- and the next following tunn tunnnn x3 in a row until you cant find a way especially when you just started hacking and there is only a straight line out, I think CCP should give us a chance to hack every can, now now, I do know that u have 2 chances but lately both of my 2 has been pretty bad lately, my hacking skills are both lv 4 I will rech relic hack lv 5 soon and this is getting annoying hearing the tunnn and with a narrow path just makes it impossible to get to anything,

oh oh ohhh that reminds me, sometimes I cant even get to the cloest amh repair or what ever gadgets that would help me solve the hack cause its purely made random, I would like to suggest to limit how many bugs can be in 1 area.

And sometimes its just too damn easy. needs to be spread out???

If it is too hard stop doing it. Tired of all this whining. Hacking is easier than it has ever been minus rats.

I think the hacking mini game is actually pretty fun. Especially when you are in low sec and the tension is already ratched up and you have "oh god, oh god I hope no one jumps in system" going on in your mind.

I'm still calling out CCP for where I think they got the idea for the minigame.

(and I think it's epic)

Yeah it's fine to vent. People pretty much USE the forums for venting, but corp chat can be a better option, or that market hub over there. Anywhere with people really.




Hacking is like playing a strange game of minesweeper now with the (beneficials nearby) numbers.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

The skills in the category scanning should all be 5s. You should be in a bonused hull with the applicable skill for that hull trained to 5.

Have you completed the tutorials?

If you have then you talk to your corp friends and for help from the ones who also do data sites. Or join a Corp that only does exploration

This. Because you can use T2 analyzers.

Actually I find the mini game and exploration the best PvE content in game, cause it's (semi-)random and you actually have to use your brain a bit to solve instead of repeating the same pattern of shooting rats over and over again. Also it's a good PvP content generator.
