Exploration loot is very low in the Winter nexus event. Players engaged in combat activities earn money, but the income of explorers is very low
Maybe the rewards depend on the security level? High-sec combat site rewards have been fairly decent - but the filaments (etc.) have almost dropped to garbage prices.
Loot is only okish in lowsec. Still much less than previous event. Looks like there are no red core sites this time, only one can each, but lvl4 scan difficulty. Which means you ideally need a bonused scan ship, but can clear the site in a few seconds.
What’s your definition of “ok-ish”? I’ve been averaging about 400m ISK/hr in high-sec…
~25M for yellow cores, haven’t run much sites yet, one got me 50 with overseers. I’m more interested in “secondary” loot. The last event was ~150M per hacking site, but red cores. This one seems to balanced for newbies which is ok.
400M/h is with combat sites? How many sites are this? I would check for inflated skin and booster prices.
This event feel’s bad … unlike easter or harvest this event made me turn back to heavens cause the isk/h is so low unlike the other events. I see a lot of ppl from my corp and ally already quiting in doing the event . Hope to see few changes cause atm it suck’s. The guy who say’s is doing 400m/h in high sec my opinion is that he lies since in low sec most you do is 200m most on 20-40m pe anomaly .
Yes, wouldn’t want to do events… for the fun of it. Nono, everything needs to give you eleventy billion iskies per hour and if it doesn’t it’s BAD!
Is he a liar? I’m not saying either way, because I don’t know. But, I’m sure someone can shed some light on this.
It’s fun for the first half hour then it becomes a grind
ISKs are fun. Too little, unfun!
Then stop doing it, why do something you don’t enjoy doing. “It gives good isk” is kinda meaningless, you might as well do things you DO enjoy.

I have merged your both identical Threads into this one.
Please avoid double Postings in the Future.
Yes. I was getting around 8-10 sites per hour. I seemed to get a lot of II and III booster drops as well as the cerebral accelerators.
Hey, far be it for me to try and convince you. My wallet says otherwise… I just ran one combat anomaly that dropped $4m ISK in loot and a $65m ISK accelerator. The second anomaly I ran a few minutes later dropped $15m ISK in loot. The third anomaly dropped $5m ISK in loot. And then there’s about $5m in bounties that are deferred, so about $90m ISK for <10 minutes of effort.
The 4th anomaly dropped $4m ISK in loot, the 5th anomaly dropped $10m ISK in loot and a $65m ISK accelerator, the 6th anomaly dropped $15m ISK in loot and an Eris SKIN, the 7th anomaly dropped $4m ISK in loot and a $2m booster, the 8th anomaly dropped $45m ISK in loot/Faction modules, the 9th anomaly dropped $33m ISK in loot, the 10th anomaly dropped $16m ISK in loot, the 11th anomaly dropped $30m ISK in loot and a Garmur SKIN, the 12th anomaly dropped $5m ISK in loot and a Burst SKIN and the final 13th anomaly dropped $5m ISK in loot and a Brutix SKIN. So roughly $232m ISK in total not including the SKINs.
I received additional bounties of $6.5m ISK, $15m ISK and probably another $10m ISK (deferred) minus repairs of $2m ISK. I started at ~8:40am and docked at ~9:20am after about 40 minutes of running these anomalies, but let’s call it an hour (this includes 2 server disconnects, reconnects and 2 trips to station to drop off loot/repair).
So what does that work out to? $90m ISK (system 1) + $232m ISK (system 2) + $32m ISK (bounties) - $2m ISK (repairs) = $352m ISK/hr (plus whatever I get for the SKINs).
The filaments are now basically worthless, so I’ll miss the $3-$5m ISK I was getting for each of those…
Yah you need to wait a week or so for the NS vets to get their skins and then leave like the previous event.
Week 2-3 of the event there will be plenty of sites.
The thread is about Explorations site loot…so yea good for you on your combite site loot.
Sorry, didn’t mean to derail the thread - just wanted to opine on what I’m getting for high-sec combat anomalies.
Send some of that loot to the data sites
I don’t know if these exploration sites are worth it. I just got a $650m ISK drop off a single anomaly. Not bad for <3min work…
