You never bring just one bhaalghorn for something like that... and then you DEFINITELY dont bring a meta4 neut bhaal. Faction that or gtfo.

Since it was all neut he could have fit 2 more plates on there and forgone the cap power relays as they did **** all for him. If they had 3 all neut bhaals fit with imp navy or dark blood heavy neuts, that moros would have been capped out in 3 cycles. Then a simple smart bomb, or hell even bombing your own fleet, to kill the drones, and you have definitely won the day.

Some guy mined 0.11M veldspar in a grav site inside a C1, when ALL the other ores were avaiable for mining...

Was his POS set up for manufacture?

I am definitely no miner but it is my understanding that Veld is now one of if not the best ISK/hr? Heard that last night on our comms...

Ok, had to share this weekend gem from one of my guys. Identities have been removed to protect the guilty. Pirate

Quote:
So there I am in a C5 off XXX, I scan down two WHs both of which are C5. Just to mix up my diving I decide that I am going to check out the C5b first, I know on the edge right.

So when in system I hit the D-Scan and see 3 POS an Oynx and an Orca, so as a matter of course I check out the POS' first and see if any pilots are online. 2 are down, but the 3rd is a different story all together as there is an Orca floating 10km outside of the shield. I put the call out to my fellow corp members for an Orca pilot, XXX is happy to come and help me steal this lovely free ship.

It was at this point that I assumed and was quite happy with about 700 mil spilt between myself and XXX, however on return to XXX he began to check out the cargo and jaws begin to drop. Here is a small list of the bigger stuff:

Ammo:
Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L 17760
Guristas Antimatter Charge XL 20400
Guristas Plutonium Charge XL 40729
Guristas Uranium Charge XL 14366

Probes:
Sisters Combat Scanner Probe 67
Sisters Core Scanner Probe 35

Sleeper Loot:
Ancient Coordinates Database 258
Neural Network Analyzer 288
Sleeper Data Library 288
Sleeper Drone AI Nexus 220
Melted Nanoribbons 75

Modules:
Sisters Expanded Probe Launcher 1
Pithum C-Type Adaptive Invulnerability Field 1

Skill Books:
Amarr Dreadnought 1
Gallente Dreadnought 1

Ships:
Cov ops x 3
Bomber x 1
Orca x 1

When checking the members tabs and totaling the amounts shown there with the ships, the total loot looks to land about 5 billion isk :D :D :D :D

Now I thought that it would be best to thank these kind people for such a nice gift, so I anchor a can outside the shield with a nice message "You mad bro? Trololo!!!". In the can is some compensation in the way of a single light scourge missile, but not just any missile, a Caldari Navy Light Scourge Missile, I know my generosity knows no bounds but I wanted to go the extra mile for them.

Unfortunately no. Something about a shortage somewhere, I don't know. Lol Roll

Ninja Edit: I blow **** up, not mine. And I was drinking. I MAY have heard incorrectly but since I know **** about mining... Hahahaha

I used to mine WH ores, way back in the day before I swore off the stuff:

http://eve.grismar.net/ore/

Basically, it's A>B>C, though Spodumain has risen above Crokite for some time.

Not sure which numbers you're looking at, but if you look at current prices for minerals, you get quite a different ranking of valuable ores. Spodumain is the worst performer, followed by Gneiss, and unless you have a specific need, you pretty much don't want to mine Crokite. Sell Orders will give you a better performance for Lowsec minerals than Buy Orders, where they fall below the Hisec minerals, but the margin is so close it's not worth the ugly of Lowsec. Veldspar fares better if you sell to Buy Orders.

Buy Orders or Sell Orders, the top four are: Arkanor > Mercoxit > Scordite > Plagioclase.

If you're looking at obtaining minerals for production, put up Buy Orders and go shoot Sleepers instead :)

I dont know. This is serious indeed. Bane is worried. It will take a long time repairing Transmission Lost's reputation after this one. Just admitting to any kind of knowledge in mining! oh man, what where you thinking?!

Cool

Doing my first dive into a C2
Scan everything, find one active pos with no one inside.
Go and run a Unsecured Perimeter Transponder Farm in my Dreaded Cloaked Imicus of Sight Seeing.
Run the site finding no Sleepers (did it in 3 minutes, do they take time to show up?)
Make off with 4 Caldari Hybrid Decryptors.
Do not check the hisec static before leaving.
Literally warp ram into the owner knocking him away from the static and get to jump through the hisec before he can hit me.

No, the Sleepers are there at first warp-in. Some of us run the radars/mags inour home systems and intentionally leave the cans alone. Mostly junk, and provides one more potential target magnet.
