I have made a few modifications to my system. I should note that some of the numbers that Shiven posted above were taken from Greedy Goblin’s blog, and he always had system wide orca boosts running. Solo Mining missions are not as profitable as they once were.
But I do have an interesting “double addition” to your arsenal. This works amazingly in Nullsec as well
. having +2 Faction AND +5 Corp for an EMPIRE corp who has a mining fleet, that fleet will defend you if attacked on grid. Not in a mission, but if you are being hunted you might be able to warp to a belt that has a friendly mining fleet and… suprise! This works best in lowsec as null has few “stations” to support a fleet.
. Having +5 faction to a PIRATE corp does the same. Again, this does not apply in a mission but it could be interesting at an undock!
Having really high faction or corp standings can be milked another way. There are two Level 4 Security missions that can be done quickly. Cargo delivery and Recon part 1-3. All can be done in an interceptor and give full level 4 security LP! If you are missioning, choose a station with a level 4 security agent IN ADDITION TO YOUR MINING AGENT. If you like you can even reject a bunch, lose some standings with agent, corp and faction but get more level 4 sec missions done. Each will count towards your storyline counter. There are people who mine in NM- for ORE and completely ignore the easy level 3 security missions that can be done in minutes!
As I write this, Blood raider LP is over 8k /lp. A null level 4 security mission gives amazing LP.
You can also do this for level 3’s as well. Worth it, imho, as long as you don’t NEED super high standings. I like to “burn off” sisters of eve standing since it rises so high from standard “empire” missioning. This also makes epic arcs more valuable, since that juicy 8% can be “burned off”. Careful to keep corporation (or agent!) above 5 or you won’t be able to do level 4’s.
Another idea: Ever wonder what to do with that high slot in your venture? Put a probe launcher in it! Scan down sigs as you gas harvest. Again, in low and null there are vauable data and relic sites.
And remember anything you have in Null can be brought to lowsec in Asset Safety for 15% of it’s value, NO MATTER THE SIZE
