So here's a question, and I hope the answers help the OP...

How often do exploration sites respawn? Each downtime? Several times during the day?

I think that when u clear a site, it spawns again in the same constellation. Dunno for sure.

Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.

Just keep exploring. Just keep exploring.

Your long term goal is to be able to warp while cloaked, get scanning skills to at least level 4, be able to hack/salvage/analyzer, and have decent enough skills to tank some rats and deal some DPS.

If you can fly a BC, with average tank/dps, then you can work Class 1 wormholes at least. The real danger in wormholes are other players! Just look around and see if there is a POS, or wrecks, or probles and then give it a go.

There is plenty to do in empire, though. Even many of the low sec mag/radar sites are fairly easy to run. I started out running them in a Navy Caracal.

Just keep exploring. Learn with experience.

Cheer,

Fro

Dscan. Dscan. Dscan. DsCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

Nope, musical numbers don't translate into eve.

But yeah, dscan. Dscan is your best friend in a wormhole. Right there a cloak and a probe ship.

And a salvager.

New sites respawn as soon as existing sites are completed. They aren't affected by downtime: if a site is there when server goes down for downtime, it'll still be there afterwards. The more people running sites (e.g. weekends), the faster they'll respawn and spread out and not clump up in one system.

Is the same thing true for similar sites in WH space?

Or they clump up in some godforsaken system even more. In fact sometimes on mondays it feels like the weekend turnover has pushed many complexes in such systems, where they sit until someone comes along and has a merry time.

I've found a few such systems, and will check them any time I wander near enough for the trip to be worthwhile.

Finding a total of SIX 4/10s in two connected systems is quite nice.
