Had a few good exploration finds over the weekend…

Scanned down and jumped into a Class 2 Wormhole from the home system. I always get a little rush jumping into the unknown of W-Space, you just never know what you’re going to find and this one was untouched. When I’m hunting/exploring in W-Space I make it a point to at least identify all the Cosmic Signatures in the System I’m working and this C-2 had a ton! There had to have been at least twenty Signatures to scan down and I can’t remember what they all were but I did pinpoint ten hackable exploration sites, six Relic and four Data.

I had jumped in flying the Hunting Hound hoping I might find something to shoot but no joy – it was a small System and all I could see on the D-Scan were some Control Towers, there was not one ship in system. The first thing I do anytime I jump into a Wormhole is bookmark my exit and after scanning down all the Sigs and bookmarking all the hackable sites I warped back to it, jumped out, re-shipped into my Cheetah and headed back in.

I managed to hack all but two of the cans (two Data site cans) and ended up with a little over $175 million ISK in the hold and found a  3-run Dark Blood Large Beam Laser Battery BPC – not one of the epic BPC’s but it’s the first Faction BPC I’ve found and it got me pretty excited!

I also stumbled upon my first few Drone Data Sites and scored a number of ‘Augmented’ & ‘Integrated’ Drone BPC’s.

There is lots going on with the Corp/Alliance and our ‘Blue’ friends and sometimes it’s hard to keep up on who’s where , what the goal is and where I would be the most help – sometimes there are multiple Ops being run in different Systems over multiple Comm Channels.

Being one of the lower skilled members of the crew I’m not always sure what I can add to an Operation but I’m always game to jump in and our FC’s are always willing to have me along. One of the Ops I joined in on this weekend was a Null-Sec Outpost Bash and I was able to provide some decent DPS to the Op with my Hound and while it was not particularly exciting we did get into a few scuffles (which I cloaked up for and attempted to get into a strategic spot for a warp in) and I got to Fleet with Mr. Stoseph Stuarts of Stoseph’s Content Creation.

I tried to get in a good exploration roam on Saturday but it was busy out in New Eden, close to 45,000 logged in mid-day on Saturday. I was semi-successful and stumbled upon a system without too much thru traffic that  had 7 Signatures and more than its fair share of Data and Relic sites. Scanned down 4 Relic Sites and 1 Data Site, opened the majority of the cans – I’m getting better at them but those Data Site cans are still pretty tough – pulled out around 150 million ISK of loot in that one system and played some cloaking games with a few of the passers-by before bailing on the exploration roam and heading home.

I scan down the Cosmic Signatures in our home system on a regular basis and will examine the Wormholes and Combat Sites a little more if they look do-able. On a quiet night recently we had a few new Signatures in System so I popped out and scanned them down and found an Angel Creo-Corp Mining DED-Rated (2/10) Complex. After taking a look at the EVElopedia entry for it I re-shipped into my Wolf and dove in – cleared it quickly and got a Gistii B-Type Small Shield Booster out of the Deadspace Control Station in the final room – looking forward to the day that I can get into some of those higher rated Complexes!

Put some time in working for the Sisters of EVE last night. My brother and I both have access to the Level 4 Security Agent in Lanngisi, Kiljavas Yaskasen, so we were doubling up on the missions and ripped through a fair number of them.

We weren’t really ‘Blitzing’ the missions as we do enjoy the extra ISK from the bounties but with two Battleship sized hulls on grid we burned through the missions pretty quickly.

Our goal for the evening was to earn 30,000 Loyalty Points, which is what you need to buy an Astero Blueprint Copy (1 run) from the SOE Loyalty Point Store. There is decent profit to be made from selling the Astero after you make it, and you can even make a little extra if you’ve got all the necessary manufacturing requirements on hand.

I normally like to reship into my Noctis after a couple of missions and head back out to loot and salvage my wrecks but we had an objective in mind last night and just grinded our way to it. Next time we do something like this I may look into employing one of the professional looting and salvaging Corporations like Pro Synergy to clean up our messes.

Has anyone had any dealings with one of these looting/salvaging Corps?
