Hi everyone, first ever post.
Thought I would try out exploration in Eve a few days back and so I read some sites for advice, fits for frigates etc and eventually opted for a T1 Imicus, although thinking now I might try out the Caldari version. I’d been in a few wormholes, remembering to bookmark an exit and started looting relics/data sites, also got ganked several times but you take the rough with the smooth. However last night was different.
I forgot to bookmark the exit within a second wormhole.
I sat there and groaned at first. Simple mistake I then thought. So I started scanning down other wormholes getting further lost in a system I had no idea which path I had taken. I wasn’t too interested in sites at this point. In the end, I found my way out into Null-space about 35 jumps away from home.
At this stage I wasn’t in any rush to get back home. Null was pretty quiet. I scanned down some sites, picked up around 10mill isk and eventually got back home safely.
To those who are considering exploration especially wormholes, I say go for it and don’t be too worried about getting lost. I had great fun actually being lost and trying to find my way back. Would absolutely do it again 100%. Although I might start to bookmark a few exits first next time.
Best evening ever!
