Howdy,

I regularly fly drone ships and am looking into the possibility of making these high level drones. Unfortunately I have been unable to find any details on materials, BPCs or anything that can help me get started. Can anyone here offer me some advice?

Go to contracts and do a search by item, and enter the name of a drone (like, Hobgoblin). You will get a list of all items that contain the word "Hobgoblin", including the BPC's for which you are searchin. Do a show info and review the materials.

I know about getting them off contracts, what I'm trying to find out is where these BPCs and drone parts come from. Are they invented? Are they salvaged? Are they dropped in wreckage and if so, where?

The answer you seek is that the BPCs drop in scanned sites out in the drone regions of null sec. Best of luck getting a steady supply of those mate.

That's why those drones are so expensive.

The parts you require are also dropped by rogue drones. Some you can get in higher level scanned drone signatures in hi-sec, but it's pretty hard to come by and inconsistent.

Again, the best place to find a 'steady' source of this stuff is in the Rogue Drone regions of null sec.

Ah, thanks for the advice - whereabouts are the rogue drone regions?

I actually find that easier to use than dotlan.

Ah, okay then.

When they first came out I thought about building, I placed various buy orders for the parts, and ran more drone plexes. But the BPC's are so hard to come by, that I gave up on it.

I never attempted to work the drone region.

A lot of people gave up on the augmented/integrated drones for the very reason that they are so hard to come by.

They do two different types of damage, but these combine to be exactly the same as a regular drone.

They have more HP a little more maneuvering, but in reality they just aren't worth the "Oh damn, I forgot to call in my drones" mistake that every pilot inevitably makes at one point or another.

Status symbol? sure.

Practical? No.
