Hello! I recently came back to EVE after a 3 year break from the game and I decided that I want to return to what I loved most in the game, and that is the Industrial aspect of the game. I’m playing on a fresh-ish toon with 9m SP, ability to pilot Obelisk and Orca pretty well for hauling/drone mining purposes. I also have basic PI, manufacturing and research skills at level 4/5.
However, I’m trying to figure out what sort ISK earning potential a character like mine has and if it’s worth leaping in to manufacturing at all? I’ve done some research and it’s honestly been rather discouraging, posts from people who say it’s not worth it unless you have an army of alts doing PI/manufacturing etc.
My initial goal was to reach a point of monthly PLEX sustainability and expand further from that point. How feasible is this as a relative short term goal? How realistic/efficient is it to have your own Raitaru as a solo Industrial focused player?
Sorry for all these questions, getting back in to EVE Online after such a long time is pretty daunting and I don’t want to throw ISK and SP away at something that isn’t going to work out.
