One of the things I like to do is mine. And I love producing things, when I can. But honestly, I’m still pretty much in the clueless stages of the game, but really trying to learn.
A couple of things I’m trying to figure out to help grow further:
What abilities/procedures should I follow to mine safely? So far, I’ve been mining in highsec areas with mainly the Venture, but I keep hearing about how people are ganked left and right, and fortunately, I’ve been pretty safe, other than a few rats here and there, so just want to make sure that I keep going this way and do everything possible to be as safe as possible (without just hiding in a docking bay, cause I could do that by not playing the game, obviously).
Production. Are there types of things that are better to make than others? I’ve basically been doing this trial and error, trying to watch the market, but I’m kind of failing in that capacity because there’s just so much knowledge to try to digest and use.
Where to sell? I’m talking both mining ore and anything I can make. I’m not hoping to become Jeff Bezos here in the game, but at the same time I’d like to at least make my effort worth it.
Having asked all that, I do want to say that I am enjoying the game. The community is generally pretty good and sometimes I think I spend more time in the new player channel just chatting and listening more than anything else in the game (usually while I’m mining). I do have one character that is growing in combat skills, but that’s more of just a side thing to keep the game from becoming monotonous.
