Having recently moved out of null sec and wormhole space where ISK making was done by doing havens and the rest of the time was PVP I thought I would try a bit of manufacturing. I’ve had the skills for a long time as it was what I did when first came to eve but they have been unused for a fair while.
However it would seem that a lot of the things in trade hubs sell for less than I can make the item for. Now I saw posts on this years ago where people were frustrated by the same thing and the kinds of answers bandied around were relating of old stock of cheaper minerals/items used by people, but this was years ago, can this surely still be a thing?
I would be interested in people’s thoughts on this and if they think that “old stock” is still the case. But it is frustrating when you look to do something and find that there seems to be no way to do what you want to do. I guess I am just feeling particularly frustrated this time as lately most things I seem to do in game are working out badly.
How can the little guy get a foothold in the manufacturing game and make a profit or is it something only the big alliances can really succeed in.
