New players or alpha clones -find a group to run lvl 4 missions and cycle till you get "Silence the Informant". This mission drops Elite Drone AIs that are worth upwards of 15,000,000 isk. That means with coordination you can harvest and horde a magnificent amount of income! Tell your friends, get your buddies grouped up, and herd this mission while the prices are high!

Elite Drone AIs also come from drone NPC complexes but that requires null sec access.

Happy hunting!!

Huh?

Took two seconds to double check this praise, complaint or whatever this thread was EVE Central Link

Far from 75 million.

Read up on how CCP took away lvl 5 missions because players complained it was too easy with no risk... so I knew that 75 mill wasn't true lol😛🙄

They are 15,000,000 isk each... not sure why I was thinking 75 mill. Edited.

So, you're saying that alpha's should grind their way to be able to do lvl 4's, and then espacially do the "Silence the Informant"?
What are you going to tell them, when they realise that missions are handed out from a pool of missions and that the frequency of that particular mission are quite low?

Hes saying it to drop the price so that they become cheaper. Excavators require 50 of these babies each to make ONE drone. Its 3/4 of an excavators price atm due to the cost involved building them. He wishes to crash that market.Twisted

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

I was unsubbed for almost 2 years, a little out of the loop, so please forgive me if I'm ruining a perfectly fine scam here, but I got to ask: is there now an actual use for those items that justifies the price tag or is this still the same old margin trade scam it was 2 years ago?

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

They are used for the new mining drones. When they first went on the market a year or more back they were around 250k each or thereabouts in Jita. At that time they were only used in making the 'Augmented' and / or 'Integrated' drones, the BPC for which are found in drone sites. Since CCP added them to the materials for the new mining/excavator drones they have rocketed up in price just due to the huge increase in demand and fairly static supply.

Silence the Informant 4 drops 5 on them so it's a nice bonus with the current prices.

Took away lvl 5's? They didn't take them away, they just restricted them to low sec.

Nice to see my old stockpile of drone poop is worth something now. Glad I held onto it all, even if it was for the sole reason of it not being worth the trouble of selling.

I don't know whether or not I even bothered looting this stuff. Time to dig around my stockpiles.

ed: yup, got a billion isk stockpile.
ed2: sold. 1 transaction. Closer to 2 billion. \o/ This, folks, is why you don't throw stuff away, and don't waste time with cheap market orders. Because some day they might be kickass market orders.

There should be huge stockpiles. This was an item that had no value or was used in market scams often. I bet a lot of mission runners have stashed that they ever touched.

Damn, I trashed so many of these... Yet, this guy will need to sell them over huge amount of time unless he wants to crash the market, which will inevitably happen now that OP has revealed his secret. Big smile

It's hard to know if this market will ever crash. I pick up millions of ISK in T2 Hobs all the time. It doesn't seem to matter how much ISK they are running, people will warp off and leave them.

It's possible the 22K purchase was done on a whim as well. I came back to 6000 T2 drone transceivers that I bought at 5K ISK each. They are at 800K right now. It's one of the things I always liked about EVE Online. Nothing you gather is truly junk. Unlike other games where you will spend hours, weeks leveling up and accumulating true garbage in the process, in EVE it all has a purpose. (not including pirate dog tags. They were destined to be eternal junk)

As for the grouping for level 4's. Level 3 and 4 groups for Alpha will benefit them. Between LP and Insignia farming, people will accomplish more in small, trust worthy fleets than they will solo. I'm not sure it will ever be a thing though.

wait... How the hell can you train an Alpha to do Level 4s?
