I've bombed through a handful of w-space systems but not seen much in the way of Hacking or Arch sites. Just looking for some general feedback on how often people are seeing them.

Do you remember what type, deadly/dangerous/unknown?

What sec did you start in, high/low/0.0?

I have been in 2 "dangerous" wh systems, both entered from 0.0 space. In neither I was able to find any Magn/Radar sites. Massive amounts of Grav/Ladar sites tho.

What I want to know from people who have found Magnetometric or Radar sites in WH space (entered from 0.0 preferably) is: Were the signature strengths noteworthy lower than the Ladar/Grav sites?

You know, quickscanning a wh system gives a load of cosmic sigs, which all are quite easily scanned a bit more to determine their Type (Ladar, Grav). IF there were also Radar and Magn sites, would they also be as "easy" to determine? (meaning getting a 25% signal strength on it as fast as on the other types).

I've found hacking and salvaging sites, they were quite decent too. After dealing with 3-4 Sleeper BS, around 15 cruisers and a flock of frigates we got a special wreck to salvage and a dozen cans to hack.

Found some in a low level wh system I got to from a 0.8 sec system. Was looking for a way out of the system though. Didn't even have the modules to exploit them.

Bumping for great justice!

Any seasoned explorer out there who can answer my question a couple of posts up?

thanks.

Ive been stuck in WH space for a day now and whilst trying to find my way out i found another WH To unknown space.. Whilst trying to find an exit in here i stumbled across a radar site..

Didnt look to hard if i had a friend or two i tanked them for a few mins killing one hoping they would turn their attention to my drones so i could warp away.. and they did.. phew!

I too would like to know this as I've been in more than a few deep wormhole systems where I was unable to find anything.

Is the sig strenth so low I can't just blanket scan at 32AU?

Are they so far outside the farthest orbit or so high off the plane that I need to expand my search farther than just covering the inside of the system with probes on the plane?

RADAR SITE

Do you have the system ID? I'm still trying to get a picture of where they spawn.

I've found lots of Grav and Unknown sites... still no Rad\Lad\Mag, sadly. This is from a WS entered from highsec although I have suspicions it was an intermediate WS.

I am currently in the process of fully charting a wormhole system. So far i have found 8 Grav sites - low quality ores, 2 wormholes (1 now closed), and 1 hacking site. And there are still 2-3 i have yet to isolate, it's very difficult now with so many hits on the signature trying to find a unique point, but i know they are in the sytem =D

Cool, Sharpmango. And can yoy say anything about that Radar site? Like if it was more difficult to scan down or the same as the ladar/gravs? Did it have a specificly low signal strength or anything? Etc :)

We're trying to get more specific information on radar/magneto sites here, not just the fact that they are out there.

I have successfully completed 1 mag and 1 radar site.

They where entered from .7 into a very small W-space system.

In terms of scanning, they where no harder than getting the wormhole scan to get back out again.

When you hacked the cans what sort of opposition did you face, and how were you set up? If you don't mind divulging :)

What about quality of the items? Is there any significant difference in loot between K-space and W-space exploration sites?

well honestly speaking i didnt notice much difference in the difficulty. i think getting the probes to triangulate well is the key issue now. and yes eve-skills help, but so does experience. i've just been trying to isolate and and a hold of the sites, so far i've discoverd 10 unique sigs in that system, and i picked up the hacker site (average frontier database) i think it was at about no5-6 on the list... now atm there are 3 sigs i cannot find, i'd say those are the hardest to isolate, but probably because theyre so damn near the centre of the system and there are other sites there too...

edit- oh and the 2nd wormhole has now closed...im relatively certain there is another wormhole in the system since the number of cosmic sigs has stayed the same...i just need to find it lol..then again, it's my new home <3

Out of sheer stubborness I scanned down all the signatures in "easy" system.

10 roid belts (almost all worthless, as we all know)
3 gas sites
1 radar site
1 magnetometrics site

Are the new T2 codebreaker and analyser needed for wh sites?

If not anyone know what they're for yet?

I have seen a few radar/mag sites in easy WH space. I didn't take a close look at them though. They're not very common. I would say maybe only averaging about 1 per system if that much.

Scanned out another class 3 (after CCP had to move me because of a buggy system) i scanned out.

11 Belts (all sorts including crap belts up to Gneiss, Bistot, Ark, Dark Ochre etc)
4 Gas sites c28, c32, c70, c72
2 Mag sites. First someone else did as much as i tried to greif them out of it. Second dropped 5 relics.

Wormhole opened 3 from Jita.

SOld a Polymer reaction for 2bn isk today. I acces the wormhole from a system about 3 jumps from Amarr. They are out there!

What sort of firepower are people needing to take out the grav and mag sites though?

The one I heard about had 3 frigs and 3 cruisers.

I had gone into a "unknown" WH system from 0.8 space. After having some friends show up and run some of the anomilies that were easily found we went to leave and after 2 of the ship went back through the WH collapsed. Now being stuck in WH space and not having all that great of probing skills. I had found all forms of sites searching fo a WH out.

Once I did find a WH it took me and my friend to another WH system belived to also being an "unknown" (easy) system. Also in the sytem found all forms of sites. the second system being very heavy radar sigs.

Finally found a WH leading back to K-space which took us to 0.0 in the middle of curse.
