Hi,

I am thinking of training my 2nd account up to get carriers to enable me to mine in lowsec. She is Amarr.

Does anyone else have experience of this? Is it worth doing? Roughly how much can be mined using max number of Drones on an Amarr Carrier (10) ? Do you get much trouble from Pirates/Roamers? Do you have any general advice for me?

Obviously not expecting anyone to reply on their mains with this one...

Thanks

before trolls came....

carrier isn't a supercarrier. Every tackler ship with warp disruptor will hold you enough time for 5-6 BS to enter system and kill you. That's how carriers die. Unless you have support of other carriers and sub-capital ships.

Bad idea. Just forget

Hmmm. Does a warp scrambler/disruptor stop a carrier/dread from activating its jump drive to jump to a another system?

Yes a regular scram / Distruptur prevent you from jumping out.

You're either a not very subtle troll, or there's something wrong with you if you think that could even possibly be a good idea.
Your mining income will be crap, and you will almost certainly lose your ship before you even get enough ISK out of mining to cover the ship cost.
General advice ? Forget about it. If you want to mine in lowsec, use a Covetor.

Thank for the reponse - I will consign that particular idea to the dustbin then... Very Happy

So I basically need a Supercarrier or Titan then, a la Chribba.

You need to BE Chribba to pull that off. A Hictor can still scramble a supercap, and if someone spots you mining they will find several to hold you down until a hotdrop can be arranged.

no, you need a hulk to mine in.

Chribba does it, because he's Chribba... and turning everything into a mining ship is kind of his "thing".

But then, getting locked and killed in a SC fitted for mining - all you need to do is respond - "I didn't want that mining ship anyway" - instant win, regardless of pilot Laughing

At 90m3 per Mining Drone II with max skills and rigs.

SC's would be nice mining ships with max skills. You can hit 2250m3 per minute if you ignore the travel time for drones.

Carriers can do 1350m3 per minute. You'd have to be pretty desperate or bored to do that though.

I myself use an Orca since it can sit in the belt forever, sport a great tank and nearly clear a belt out while I do other things. Park your but in a .9 sec system and go to town. Your biggest cost for set up after the Orca is 2 Large Drone Mining Augmentor II's.

Hiya m8. Let me know when and where you plan on mining in your carrier. I'll join you with some of my friends.
