There are numerous ways to make ISK in EVE Online, and even more ways to spend it. I’m relatively new, but I’ve been around long enough to go broke on some things I wish I hadn’t.
Mind you, what might be a moneysink for a new player might be beneficial later on, but starting out, I’d say there’s a lot of distractions new players should avoid.
One of the bigger ones for me was the skills for big ships. When you’re just starting out, it pays to keep your focus on what’s directly ahead.
Skill injectors can be a temptation, too. I wish I’d have saved money instead of “instatraining” fifty skills that would have only taken a half-hour each.
Lastly, customizations for characters. They aren’t essential, and they can cost a lot more than they’re worth for pure vanity.
What other moneysinks have you found?
