Having got a little tired of mining and not being interested in PVP, I decided to try Salvaging for a while. To be honest I got tired of saving up to learn Exhumers whilst still only halfway to having to cash to buy that skill - with another hundred mil ISK or so to buy an Exhumer after that.
So I bought a Vexor. Never had one of these before. Nice looking ship.
I learned Medium Turrets and added some of those, plus a Miner II, a Tractor Beam (cool) and a Salvager. Being Gallente, I also stocked up with plenty of drones.
Also being a complete wuss, I have not risked going lower than .7
So I go to the asteroid field, do a little mining, kill the Rats that attack and salvage their wrecks.
I noticed last night when I abandoned a small Jetcan that it turned blue. Never done that before. However, I have seen other NPC wrecks that are blue. Are these safe to salvage? Presumably someone has killed the Rats and then abandoned the wreck as they don't do salvaging? Or is it a trick, so they can attack anyone who salvages them?
Secondly, my Vexor still has medium and lower slots vacant. What do I put in those?
I could use Cargohold Enhancers in the lower ones I suppose. My usual ship is the larger Mining Barge with two of those, so the Vexor's hold seems a little small.
What about the medium slots? The Vexor has lots of power available so Cap drain doesn't seem a problem for now. Thoughts please?
(Yes, I realise that in.7 I could kill the Rats with a Frigate, or even a few drones whilst in my Mining Barge, but as I said, I am a complete Wuss
