With the new scanning system i have found myself spending more time in my anathema finding wormholes, and all other types of sites, and i have found Radar hacking sites the most profitable in the fast-cash department....but i still have a few questions to help me in my aim to become a competent looter.

1. how often do these sites respawn/refill?

2. do they stay in the 1 system or move around a lot?

3. what is the actual percentage of sites findable being radar?

4. so far i have had no sites in hi-sec that have had spawns guarding it only low/null-sec that have guarding spawns?

5. as i am nearly there for archeology, are these sites just as profitable as radar sites? and are they of the same kind of configuration (cans needing a mod to open them) ?

thanks for all yoiur help in advance!

they respawn once completed

they will move to another random spot in the area they spawn in. this is somewhat less defined, some sites were limited to respawning in constellation. others might be regional, or even overlapping regions.

no clue, I would guess 1/5 or so. maybe a bit less maybe a bit more, personally I have been finding mostly radars and unknowns.

dunno, most of the ones I have done have had a guard of some sort. or if there wasn't they spawned when trying to hack a can.

the mag sites some need a salvager to open some need an analyzer. but pretty much the same as hacking sites.

My experience with Mag sites are that they drop t1 salvage, and are hardly worth the effort. Radar sites are worth 50+ times as much, requiring the same amount of effort.

Others may have more to say on this, but at this point doing mag sites are a waste of time. Haven't done any lo or nul sec mag sites, maybe someone else has some experience with these.

Mag sites have been horrible recently, but I worked one in low sec over the weekend that yielded some T2 salvage, and good counts on the T1. Corpmate found T2 salvage in a high sec Mag. So maybe the payout has been "fixed".

I'be done probably 50 mag sites in the past week or so. Mostly T1 salvage, but there were a couple pieces of T2 salvage and a 3 run serpentis small blaster battery BPC.
