Hello folks,

I'm returning after a long period of time and alot has changed, Miners have Ore Hold Dam this is new.

So was thinking having my alt miner mine in highsec with a retreiver.

I've tried to do calculations but it's all messed up but i'll try explain. I have come to total ore hol is 28,078m3 for retiever with MB lvl 5.

Then say if i mined Scordite which seems highest profit atm. How much isk would i make an hour if i mined high sec solo?

Just to see if it's vaible. I'm considering to join a mining corp but need to find one first.

Many Thanks to any feedback

Retriever is your best pick, just check how long it takes you to mine the hold full and do roundtrip to empty it at station.

27500 ore bay, actually.

max skills, 3% implant, no boosts... 16.6 mil isk/hour on scordite.

16.5mil hour not too bad if its the worst i can do.

So how much would be worth in high sec if i had boosts etc? Also within that hour having 2 strip miners how many times in the hour will i need to dock up and let all ore out?

actually, that's the best you can do, as it's max skills and 0 travel time.

boosts are worth up to ~70% extra.

I ment worst situation with solo + Retreiver. Because anything on top of that will increase the income.
70% wow so you can possibly be earning 30-40mil an hour. Dam that's alot than i thought.

Might consider finding a mining corp but they have been to dying out since i last played which was many years ago.

erm no, 28.22m at best, not even close to 40m.

that's because corps have nothing to offer miners that own more than 2 accounts.

no. not 30-40 mil.

max skills in a hulk, I was pulling in 20-25m per hour (though I wasn't cherry picking the scord ... i needed to fill in a few shortages because the market was being slow).
One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

Hmmm well it's only one account with a retreiver so dont know if its worth my time activating him just to mine. Any input anyone?
#10 Posted: 2013.04.12 13:27
do you want an account that will make 16.5 isk/hour? --> yes? --> reactivate your account.

no?

Wouldn'the be batter off in a mack?

15m per hr is 15m/hr... trouble is, cherry-picking scord isn't really something you can do AFK.

2h/day means you're getting 150m/wk.

5% yield for like 3 weeks training or something.

erm, no, not really.

not to mention the cost difference between the two ships.
the fact it's a bigger target for gankers.
more skills needed to fit a tank on it so gankers are less likely to try and shoot you.
etc

definitely -- that was my point with the ISK.

guess the systems I've seen just have too many people doing the cherry-picking to make it AFK-able (1-2 cycles/rock isn't really "AFK" to me). Granted, mining isn't my main income source these days, so I don't scout out "good" mining systems anymore.

quite right, it's not the best afk activity you can do.

it's more of a "tabbed out doing something else" activity than a "i'm going to take the dog for a walk for an hour" type of activity. however the input is minimal for the rewards you get out of it.
