I know toons with cyno 5 are always wanted for covert cyno's

But id like everyones opinion if starbase defense lvl 5
would add to the value of a character

I plan on having a basic cov op toon ready to be put on sale in next 30 days
with a full set of +3 implants also
cyno 5
starbase defense 5

#1 How much do basic cov op toons w/ cyno 5 only go for

#2 How much do you think starbase defense 5 would add to
the cov op cyno 5 toon would go for o nthe character bazaar

It's my opinion that few buyers will discriminate between a cyno alt with cyno 3 vs one with cyno 5. Where cyno 5 does add value, however is in black ops. If you were to train to cruiser 5 and then recon 4, your character would be able to light a covert cyno for black ops fleets. having been in some of these, i can tell you that not many black ops/recon pilots can light a covert cyno.
anyway, that's my two cents.

starbase defence should add some isk, not sure how much. KNow a few jumpers who had midpoint pos' varying level of deathstars (but not full blown ones) and the cyno alts at them manned the guns if need be.

Would think about the lv 5 though, low sec midpoints for 0.0 types are in pirate country most times. Unless a really bad hood, or the future owner of the char really ****ed them off YARRRR!!'s won't have the numbers or motivation for a full blown pos assualt. Pirates don't dig pos warfare, one of the reasons they aren't in null sec lol. Worst new owner may get is maybe them knocking on the pos door to scratch shields in the hopes of baiting a carrier rep.

Full blown deathstar needing 5 skills a bit much I am thinking. 0.0 JF pilots can chime in, those I know went small scale death star on medium and large towers. Med and large already bad enough if you don't have dreads and sc's in adundance (ref'd and bashed both pure bs and below, sucks ass)...annoying scrams and jams an added incentive to have them pirates get back on the gates for easier kills lol. Gun or 2 to kill the truly persistent ones.

Train industrial V instead, so the buyer has the option to go for a cloaky transport with a minimum of additional training. Great way to get cyno frigates in place.
