Belt Ratting in Null-Sec is not the best ISK/Hour activity but I enjoy it every once in awhile for a change of pace. Belt Ratting is kind of like playing the lottery you’re totally counting on ‘Lady Luck’ for that rare spawn. Since the introduction of NPC Capital Ships there are now four types of rare spawns that can be found in Asteroid Belts… “Hauler”, “Commander”, “NPC Capital” and “Officer” spawns.
I spent some time over the last couple of nights chain clearing the belts in our home system and on one night over the course of about four hours I got three separate NPC Carrier spawns but on the next night doing the same thing I got absolutely nothing.
There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to when or where a rare spawn will show up, it appears to be totally random.
