What is a good way to get isk

so what is a good way to get isk right now my miner is gone and the “quest” jobs can just be a pain so whats a good way

Just playing the game has always worked for me. I don’t really go out and look for ISK per say, but I live in a wormhole and I just kind of do whatever the mood strikes. Sleeper sites, data/relic sites, PI, escalations, other player’s loot, gas mining.

If you’re super new, relic sites are a great way to make ISK I think. You’ll learn how to play too, scanning is an important player skill to have and you can get paid really well in these sites.


Taking it from other players by threat or force works really well.


^ This, lol. If you’re not trying to take from someone, then someone else is trying to take it from you.

Trying to plex the game from the start will never work without at least some experience. Play the game for a while, while you learn. There is something to interest just about everyone. You just have to play long enough to find it. It’s the things that interest you that make you isk.

I don’t wonder about finding a good way to make ISK but a good way to have fun. ISK is an end result of successfully having fun.

How do I have fun? I go with what I feel like doing. Mining in a belt. Whacking rats in a belt instead of mining, or maybe while I mine. Upping the challenge by whacking rats in an 0.5 system flying only an Impairor. Exploring around New Eden and seeing how other faction stations and ships look. The Minmatar h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶u̶g̶l̶i̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶s̶t̶b̶u̶c̶k̶e̶t̶s̶ ̶I̶’̶v̶e̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶l̶i̶f̶e̶
have really nice looking ships.

Sometimes I make a Tormentor or a Punisher for the sake of creating them. Talking to other players in Rookiechat works for me too. I like the freedom this game gives me to act out the way I want.

Yet I still use spreadsheets to keep track of my in-game expenses, so my system isn’t perfect.

  • Pull out credit card
  • spend $$$ on PLEX
  • sell PLEX for ISK
  • get murdered in your shiny ship to lose it all due to pilot error
  • repeat



“they do have the best ships ever in looks”

They all make isk. It’s not always about how much isk your making, but how much fun you are having doing it.

RMTs so you dont have to give ccp a fracking dime

Yeaaaaa. So they they don’t make any money and have to close they company and then you can not longer play the game.

Or would you like them to make “add revenue” all all those billboards in all those stations will actually play real world adds. Adds popping up in all the chat channels and when you open the game and when you enter a station and when you go afk… That sounds like soooooo much fun.

Personally I would rather pay them a little every now and then.

Developers have to eat too…

You smoothbrains realize that you can’t cut CCP out of the Omega account process, right?

I was being sarcastic. Next time ready the whole thing before you comment.

No, you were arguing with the other brainlet, just not for the right reason.
