ABYSS no loot


(eldust) #1

EVE is has always been a balance on risk vs reward and that is fine but when I take my 500mill ship in to tier 1 and 2 and 3 repeatly and nearly no loot at all, I have not lost mys ship yet but have been close .

But if I risk so much there should be more loot to get if not I dont se a reason to play it, I like the room and the grapich but when I put 500 mill on the table there should also be something in there for me to, and I have done a lot of the rooms now.

Or I can just go back to PI good isk there :grinning: stay cool

Have you destroyed the storage items that drop the loot?


(Thermal Yassavi) #3

You do realize that you can lose that 500mil ship just by undocking.

Sure, but not all risk is equal. The whole “risk vs reward” concept is based on deliberately placing yourself at greater risks can yield you better rewards. When that is out of balance, people will stop doing it.

And it does seem that drop rates in the Abyssal sites are a little out of balance ATM.

Risk is subjective. Those tiers aren’t hard for me. I have not lost or come close to losing a single ship on the abyss. (3 failed gank attempts on exit)

It is risky to moon mine in Uedama but that doesn’t make the ore worth more.

Ive ran more than 100 Tier 3 filaments so far. Only half a dozen had zero loot. All of them had atleast 1-2 loots, most 3.

The T1 tend to give out none, because they are so easy. But you clearly havent ran a lot of T3s if youre getting zero loot. That or you dont know how to run them.

Also, why. If i use my 10 billion isk blingy marauder to run level 1 missions, should the pay reflect the expense of my ship? Should i be compensated by receiving 100 mill rewards instead of the 500k isk i get?

why take a 500mill ship into a tier 1 when a 28mill fit will smoke it?

~400dps total output, ~46dps tank (dunno about ehp/s, haven’t nerded out enough to break out the calculator yet), the ONLY thing this fit has trouble with is the battleship. Even saying that, took on a Tier 1 (with a battleship) and moonwalked out of there with 6 minutes to spare.

Why all the cap mods for a single after burner?


(Gaius Mileghere) #10

shield booster.


(Ildrara) #11

Isn’t needed.


(Gaius Mileghere) #12

I disagree.

hehe it was just a observation when playing this part of game , I have the maruder, lived in low.null and a year in WH but now I am back to carebear again in high sec.

I just think its not good for the Abyss if many feel the same.

Peace out :heart_eyes:
