250m isk Ishtar to solo Pirate Strongholds in 1hr afk

  1. distract the hauler’s response fleet, or gank it
  2. drain the stronghold’s capacitor using the pod you used to get a bm 1500km+ from it
  3. warp to 100km, warp your alt’s pod out, dump drones, engage structure, hightail it thataway
  4. orbit from 200km to 400km [edit: bad idea; orbit <160km]
  5. bring all your alts to that safespot 1500km+ from it
  6. profit

see latest post for improved technique

or use 2-3 leshaks and ingnore the response fleet and be done in 15 minutes


total time, exactly, to solo = 78 minutes, including the time to drain fob using pod.

minimum reward for 1 pilot on grid = 15m
optimal reward for 10 pilots on grid = 30m
anything less or more than 10 pilots lowers the reward.
most pilots i’ve seen used is 48 so i assume that’s the amount you’d need to get the maximum 800m isk payout.

preoverheat, take your drug
warp to 100km default
orbit at 100km default
hit f3 (mwd)
launch drones
target stronghold
engage target

warp out your pod !

turn off overheat !!

I tried another test with nomads instead and the results were equivalent. slower but quicker to speed…i’d probably prefer the nomads simply to get up to speed a tiny bit faster and the agility later on if needed.
