Back when high sec still had static DEDs, I used to farm the Guristas 2/10. There was an acceleration gate in the first room that was hard to get through because it required a key that only dropped from an overseer and that overseer took ages to respawn. Plus the key was consumed upon activating the gate.
I found a way around this, once I got a key and made it to the final room, I would fly until I left the grid and then place a bookmark that I could warp back to and then simply fly back on grid effectively bypassing all the gates.
Is this still possible? I was recently grinding standings on an Alpha alt account and came across a mission with a gate that only allowed shuttles through. On the other side was a pocket filled with tons of huge mine-able asteroids that obviously weren’t meant to be mined.
I’m wondering if it is possible to fly off grid and warp an alt to me in a mining ship and then fly the mining ship on grid and mine the asteroids. This would for example allow a paper max yield Hulk to mine in 100% safety as no gankers could get through the gate and no one is going to fly 50,000+ km.
