So I'm newish to exploration but have now run quite a few 0.0 radar/mag sites. My question is what is it that you can find that's really worth something?

So far....

Mag - T2 rig Blueprints and T1 salvage. T2 rig BP seem worthless for most part?

Radar - Datacores don't seem worth much, but the decryptors are ok. gallente encryption methods keeps popping up lol

Is that as good as it gets with these sites? I have heard radar sites are good but don't see the evidence yet at least (though only 20 or 30 run so far). Should I stick to unknowns?

I guess I just need something to get exited about when running these sitesWink

even if you sell a t2 rig bpc "cheap", your still making a reasonable amount of money.

Depends on what you call profitable ...

I'd say on everage you'll get 60mil out of (non-wormhole) radar or mag sites, so it is worth the time ... While every single item might not be a treasure, they sum up to decent amount of ISK if you keep doing it :)

For the unknowns with the real high value loot, you probably need a small raiding party as you can't solo them anyway ...

Definitely not profitable, please everyone stop scanning down radar and mag sites.

This is as good as it gets with exploration. I can grind 5 times more with mission running; I just like exploration. :)

CCC II has a great profit margin if you've been collecting your t2 salvage. That goes for all t2 rigs, but that one just sells good.

Especially now , when pinpointing signature takes 3 minutes, it is really, really not worth your time and effort !

With the exploding price of power circuits -- most mag sites aren't very profitable anymore in terms of t2 rigs. Radar sites are hit and miss but I prefer the steady income from lvl 4's.

Well i'm in NPC 0.0 atm, and with crap belt rats and new scan mechanics/WH nobody is ratting - everyones running sites lol. Maybe it'll die down once wormhole novelty wares off but i'm not so sure. Plus the fact you can now find 90% of the sites with an unbonused shipCrying or Very sad
