Congratulations on a great loot drop.


(Dyver Phycad) #3

Congrats on a jackpot. Don’t expect every 4/10 to drop that kind of value, though. I had a similar experience with 6/10s where the first dropped the nice A-Type Invul, but ever since the loot fairy was not kind to me. :laughing:


(Astatine Kalkoken) #4

Nice last time i saw a A type moudle was when a wild jackdaw stole it from me
I think they should make loots more constant i have gotton jackpots like this but sometimes there was none. The overseer thingy is too small too be a constant loot maybe garunted ~ 10M worth of module would be better


(Astatine Kalkoken) #5

Ty to be honest that loot tripled my entire total est isk value


(Omnathious Deninard) #6

I here where you are coming from with wanting consistent loot drops, but if they are too consistent the value of the loot drops to nothing.

I remember a time where a c-type invulnerability field was 400~500 million isk.


(Anderson Geten) #7

if they were more reliable they would be worth a lot less. And you would still complain they are not reliable enough.


(Leah Crowleymass) #8

Happy that you got a good drop here, but this is definitely not consistent. In the past 2 days, I ran 4 4/10s and all I have to show for it is a bit of faction ammo and a couple of tags.

Not to say they aren’t worth doing, but just offering the caution to not expect this from every site.


(Ember Fireheart) #9

The low drop rate actually helps a lot with its value as it dissuades most people from doing them because they think they are garbage after 2-3 bad drops in a row.

As a rule of thumb the more people do something the more useless it becomes look at mining in high sec xD lol’s…


(Anderson Geten) #10

The mining volume in HS i actually very low compared to other spaces.


(elitatwo) #11

And don’t forget, NPC mining bots are mining the ores now too.


(Leah Crowleymass) #12

Oh, I totally agree! I’m not advocating for an increased drop rate, just chiming in on the fact that what the OP experienced is not typical.


(Whitehound) #13

I was playing around with a Stratios yesterday in preparation for the upcoming event. Just for fun did I go into a site and ended up with an escalation to a 3/10 Serpentis Narcotic Warehouses.

It dropped a Daredevil 1-run BPC and a 5MN A-Type Corelis MWD.

Not what I had expected at all.


(Trevor Dalech) #14

When I lived in low sec I’d scan our large amounts of systems, and bookmark anything interesting. If I had several of them in the same area, I’d have a specialised ship for each type of DED site, for example I had a caracal that could run a Sansha 3/10 in 1m10s.

Run enough, fast enough, and the law of large numbers kicks in. A single one might not be worth much unless you’re lucky, but run a large number and the ISK/hr beats anything you find in high sec.

For speed running, all that matters is the overseer, ignore anything else unless it’s a trigger.


(Andrew Indy) #15

Another issue with DEDs especially Gurista ones is that there is a lot of competition/ Gankers in LS. The max reward is very high but as mentioned the chance to drop good items is pretty low and combine that with the chance you might lose the drop or die/run away reduces the reward / time a fair chunk.

LS is however way better than HS for DEDs as long as you get a quiet area. 1-4/10 have a much lower drop rate (IE I run as many 1-3/10 as 4-6/10 but I have 20X as many cruiser BPCs and almost none came from 4/10) along with the much better mods.


(Nicole Moudaber) #16

Can you get 4/10s in low sec, i have a main in fw space, i dont mind running them here as i expect to die which isnt an issue.


(Andrew Indy) #17

True but they are a copy and paste from the HS once, still with the lower drop rate ect, They even sometime have smaller sigs ect in many case, so you have a harder time scanning them down only to get a ■■■■ site.

Proper LS sites have much higher drop rates , pretty sure its a balancing thing since so many 1-4/10s get run in HS the mods would be worthless if they had the same drop rates.


(Anderson Geten) #18

OR it’s designed to be balanced automatically …


(Nicole Moudaber) #19

for 5/10s what quick cheap ship can run these?


(Omnathious Deninard) #20

Most of the time if it’s quick it’s not cheap, it it’s cheap it’s not quick.
