I’m still newish and haven’t found a permanent niche yet so maybe this is why I’m asking.
I just discovered building rigs. Bought a blue print for 125,000 isk and built a bunch of rigs, having more than enough of the parts I got from ratting, even after selling a lot before I knew what they were. I saw that buying just one of the same rig was much much higher in price.
So here’s my question: Why would anyone buy a rig when its so much cheaper to build your own?
The answer may lead to another topic I’ve been wondering. Do most other players pick a career and stick with it or still fiddle with a bit of everything even after playing for a while? Do other players find a niche “become” that career?
Like I said I’m still pretty new but I’ll occasionally go mining for some ore for the materials to use blue prints for weapons or ammo, then I may explore just to see what i might find and make some isk (and the adrenaline rush of sneaking around low sec). Other times I’ll go ratting for isk and loot and salvaging.
Lastly, while I’m here… how can I find a station that will let me improve a blue print? Do i just jump around looking for one or is there a way to tell? The stations I’ve checked all say that its not available to do there.
