I was in Dodixie local chat and bore witness to the following;
Player 1: Can anyone tell a poor boy like me a good ship to buy for 500K ISK?
Player 2: You can get free ships from the career missions. The Corax and Cormorant sell for 1.2 million but they are free from the career agents.
Player 1 never responded although I peeked at their info, almost 2 years in the game and asking a new player question like that one. I figure they are thick headed and have no idea what they are doing, or they are begging for ISK in a more subtle manner.
Kudos to Player 2 for giving them a proper response. Remember give a man a fish and he will eat for the day. Teach the man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.
If there are any uninformed players reading this thread; One can do the career agent missions and obtain about 10 free ships. Since you can repeat them 12 times, this is well over 100 ships for free, plus millions in ISK, and other items.
Making Mountains of Molehills (9 of 10)
You can earn 2 million ISK by ignoring the assistant shooting at you.
He is a poor shot, while he misses the shields on your Venture will have time
to recover. I never fall below 70% all the time mining the sector.
Make two trips if you need to, but leave him alone until you mined ALL the
ore. Taking him out will finish the mission and any hope to mine the whole
Cash Flow for Capsuleers is ten combat quests for ISK. Be sure you loot all
the ships you destroy. Even the scrap has its value. Should you run short on
cargo space return to dock, unload, and warp back. The ships will not respawn
unless you have logged off for some length of time.
Soldier of Fortune quests Angel of Mercy (2 of 10) and The Stand (5 of 10) gift
you a ship meant to be destroyed. Insure the ship at platinum level and collect
when they are destroyed for more ISK.
Doing ALL 45 tasks at one of the 12 sites will result in the following;
