This is my dilema… My main char has 40m sp, my alt has 15 before i quit the game in 2013. I solo’d class 2 wormholes when they came out by just putting a large amarr pos on a planet, with the basics like a corp hangar and ship bay and the rest of the mods were all guns and shield hardners… with enough fuel for a month at time.
I mainly mined and i made over a billion isk very quickly, but real life happened so i moved all my stuff out and quit the game, and then came back a few years later and did wormholes again in “2013”. I did the same thing as before, did alot of mining, hauling mercoxite ore back and forth to normal space and made a lot of money. Then quit again for 4 years. And here i am again.
I want to do wormholes again, but now with citadels im not sure how to go about this. I had people tell me in game that POS are done and some said you cant even anchor them anymore ? I noticed some modules are deactivated like silo’s and so forth.
So I took a look at citadels, and this is what is confusing me. Citadels seem weak as hell, 7m shields compared to 40m on my large POS, almost no weapons to speak of, and the only benefit i can see is you can dock now vs keeping ships in the bubble. The only thing i do like is the ability to refine my ore. I hated making 30 trips with hauler specially if i only had a low sector static to move hundreds of thousands of m3 worth of ore. Now i can refine it in the station without a penalty loss like POS’s used to have and save up huge amounts of minerals and move them all out in a few jumps.
But then the question of how easy it is to destroy the citadel from the videos ive seen 4 battle ships can kill one…
Is it worth solo’ing a class 2 like i used too? And if so… Should i do a POS again or a citadel. I cant afford the 100b one just the 1-2b citadel. Are pos’s really going away anytime soon, or am i safe to go with what i am more familier with. But then i do like again like the ability to refine in the citadel’s specially with no tax loss stealing my minerals thats the only reason why i would buy and set one up to save myself endless hours making so many jumps with unrefined ore.
Sorry for a long post but i need some guidance
