so seems CCP is moving around ores in a 3 parter update in the near future, im all for this except when i read;
“Removal of all basic ores from Moons”…
meaning the only way to get say arkonor now is in nullsec, like wtf? i get risk = reward but what if your a highsec mining corp? they wont be hitting pay durt like ever again? so moon mining in highsec might now die off, but hey what i know, what you guys think?
p.s. im not whining or anything im confused on the matter not allowing rarer ores even in o.5s?
Nullsec ore never should have been made available in highsec moons. I don’t know what CCP was thinking… well I kinda do, but let’s leave that alone.
In any case, CCP is attempt to restore some regional diversity of resources again like the game was originally designed to have. To force trade between the areas of space. Highsec loses the nullsec minerals, and nullsec is losing the highsec minerals. It’s not complete as you will still be able to get some, but the restriction will need both ares now need to trade with each other.
Will it work? Who can say. But one can hope this is the first step in reinvigorating this game.
Even though null sec ores made it into high sec moons, high sec still never really increased the mining share in the total cluster-wide mining yield. It is less of an issue than people think.
What I wonder, however, is what the point of high sec moons will be at all now. If they mean the removal of all normal ores from moons when they say “Complete removal of all basic ore types from all moons”, there is no point in having them because the R8 stuff is not worth mining at all.
I never post here but just felt the urge to post a heartfelt fkoff to CCP for this!
Moon mining in high sec is basically my entire game, so I suppose it’s time to go catch up on what other games are out there for now.
And don’t bother trolling this post, I never read the forums as it such a complete trolling ■■■■ show.
Yes - thank you! Yet another thread on this very subject is precisely what we needed! With luck and hard work from others like you we may get as many as 20 threads all about the same thing before they start to lock them all.
There is no point to the moons in 0.5 sec HS (and WH space) now if they lose all regular ore. The so-called moon goo is the lowest tier of the 5 tiers, nowhere near as essential to mfg and nowhere near as valuable as what some lowsec and nullsec moons have…
So unless CCP is going to increase the amount of things that can be done with the products from that Ubiquitous moon goo… yes, they might as well just remove Athanor moon mining from WH space and 0.5 sec. You can’t even compress the stuff to make it less of a pain.
Similar to the new Triglavian ores in Emerging Conduits and Minor Conduits/Major Conduits/World Arks/Observatory Flashpoint Triglavian Invasion sites. W2B compression for all of these ores, please.
