Drone Horde with good skills is 25m ticks (if you only run non-rings) in a VNI
Drone Hordes with good skills is 50-70m ticks (if you only run non-rings) in a Carrier with T2 Fighters
The loot is usually nothing special, but every once in a blue moon you will find a nice sentient thing from a faction spawn. Haven’t seen any good loot from the carrierspawns there though. They mostly contain droneGoo for Capital BPC’s.
The nice thing though: FactionSpawns announce themselves in local chat (lots of binary code = factionSpawn)
Overall, it’s not bad at all, just that other regions have a higher chance of getting something nice from factionspawns. The loot doesn’t matter, cause looting Anoms sucks anyway. You only want to do that when you get a faction spawn. Leave the loot to new pubbies looking for some isk and have your salvage alt run a second VNI instead.
If you are running all the hordes => warp in at 20, Orbit a structure in the center at 30. Don’t slack when landing in a ring horde, it will kill you quickly if you do slack.
