As it turns out, I’m not that good at scanning. Whether it is partly due to my lack of skills or because I just suck at it in general. I’m just bad at it.
I found that out while trying to check if I could scan things in a high sec area. It took me about 20 minutes to resolve the one gas site that I found there. Twenty whole minutes.
Scanning ship, at your service
Makes me wonder how bad I’ll be at this if I tried it in w-space. And I don’t feel like training it right now because I have other plans in my queue. I’m currently training to finally be able to fly a Loki. I already have all the subsystems in place, the only thing missing is Minmatar Cruiser V.. Which will take me 17 more days, I guess that just goes to show that I should plan things better than I do right now.
But! The good news is that I finally finished Gallente Battleship V so my Machariel now has the full bonuses for both the Battleship skills. And most people know, I really, really love my Machariel.
Which makes it even better for me that people seem to want to get rid of theirs, the prices of Pirate faction battleships has been dropping ever since Rubicon hit.
The whispers I heard say that this is because of the warp speed changes, making them rather slow. But I still love my Mach, it’s my first baby and I will treasure her/him/it forever.
And in other news, turns out that I forgot to enable auto subscription on my main account so I lost 14 hours of training..Darn
Stay tuned o7
Yesterday was a fun day on EvE. Not only did I receive a few evemails about joining WH corps, I also tried out something new.
Let’s talk about that first. What did I do? Well in a spur of the moment I decided to try and get the last Interbus Custom Office in our system down. I was checking my planets and saw that most offices had already been shutdown except for one. So I asked people in the channel I chat in if they were up to it and after about 20 minutes of me going to Jita in 3 accounts and buying a few “glass cannons” we were ready to start.
Seeing that I didn’t actually know what to use to destroy the POCO and I thought that you might get a suspect flag (can you tell that I haven’t read up on this?) I decided on two hurricanes. Neither of them doing that much damage, one was at 750dps, the other 540dps. The lower DPS one wasn’t able to use T2 turrets so that was why it was a bit lower.
The third account is a newbie 1 month old one that was flying a drake with 150dps.
Suffice to say, what I had was not nearly enough to take it down. Luckily I have people who sort of like me enough to come and help me.
Hey guys, when did we get shadows?
Seeing that we’re all noobs one way or the other, our DPS total was about 3-4k across 6 characters.
While we were shooting at the Office my Industrial character was slowly making her way to Jita in an Orca to buy a gantry and the necessary upgrade items.
When I got back to our home system we were at about 40% shield left. So I did what any person would do. I let my Orca drones fly out. That’s right, we have an orca on our Interbus kill mail!
I’d have laughed if the Orca had the final blow
It took awhile, but I’m pretty happy with the fact that our corporation is currently the proud owner of a POCO. I have no idea how long it will take but I like it because we did something new, and as a group. It was fun.
Yay, building things!
While all of this was going on I was looking at the wormhole mails I got and talking to one in particular. This guy turned out to be fun to talk to and I was planning on sending my application right after we were done with what we were doing.
Unfortunately, this person’s patience level wasn’t very high. Seeing that I was busy on 4 accounts at the same time I didn’t look at my main’s chat window a lot. After a few minutes he started to tell me that I should quit my corporation immediately and apply to his. I told him I was a bit busy and he kept telling me I should quit and that he’s waiting for my application.
Suffice to say that I reversed my earlier thoughts on him being a nice guy. Which means that I’m still looking out for a corporation to join. My forum post doesn’t seem to be too popular. I guess nobody wants someone with +30m SP but absolutely no idea what he’s doing.
I will need myself a babysitter in W-space.
Stay tuned o7
I own a few high sec factory planets. The reason why I have them is because I had gotten too lazy to update my low sec ones.
So one day I decided to pack up every planet in low sec and just put factory planets in my main system. It’s turning out pretty well, I make a slight profit by making the products, it’s not as big as the one I had in Low Sec but still, I don’t mind. It’s all about being lazy anyhow.
I now just buy the T1 mats in jita, or wherever it’s cheapest at the moment (I do this in bulk) and then I ship them over to my planets, converting them in T3, T4 stuff. Depending on what I feel like doing. It works pretty well and the times I make Robotics it spices up my little Robotics stock.
Having these planets made me think long and hard about Rubicon’s custom office change. And I still don’t know what I should do with it. My corporation isn’t that big, most of the time it’s just me and one other person that’s online. We do own a few accounts with the two of us and we both have a whole bunch of firepower at our command, but I doubt that we’ll be able to set up a few of our own POCOS.
I think I want to have a look and see what will turn out after Rubicon, will every office in our HQ’s space suddenly turn into POCOS, or will some of the interbus ones stay up. And if that happens, why?
Another thing that might stop me is the cost of a POCO, it’ll go up, that’s for sure, and despite the fact that theoretical taxes will pay it back within the month. There’s the off chance that you’ll be out of luck and get wardecced, meaning a termination of your POCO, among other things.
I guess we’ll just have to play the wait and see game.
Hmm, that reminds me, I have to fill up my planets for the week!
My little ‘Epithal’ I love you so much
