hallo there,
now that i have been in thsi game for about one month and have tryed out different things, like mission running, npc fighting and some mining, i`d like to know a bit more about the minign and skills required to do it in the most efficiant way.
so the question is: what skills are requred to be most efficient in mining ore ?

as far i see that mining skill, as well as astrology skill gives bonus to mining yeld, are there any more skills to do so?

as for ships: the bs apoc is a nice mining ship with 8 lasers on, but as i understand, tehn the biggesr mining barge has more mining yeld, right?

what other essntioal info is needed, to become a professional miner?

thank you :)

For early game mining the best thing to do is get Mining up to 4 (so you can use Miner 2's) and get either Caldari or Minmatar cruiser up a bit aswell, and get a osprey or scythe (good mining cruisers).

When you got that done, aim for a large barge. The step up from a osprey or scythe to a medium barge isnt all that big in mineral yield, so I'd advice on skipping it, and going straight for the large barge.

Here is a list of other skills that you will need or want perhaps

Astrogeology (train to level 4 initially)
Refining 5
Refining Efficiency 5
Science 5
Metallurgy 4 (5 if you have the time)
Hydromagnetic Physics 4
Ice Harvesting 4
Ice Processing 4

Specialized ore refining skills like Veldspar processing
and there is scrap metal processing I think a well.

I hope this helps
cheers!

You left off Engineering V, Justin.

The best thing to do is look at the skills for a Covetor. Those'll make you an excellent miner. Then you'll want to look into the others Justin mentioned too. Refining's handy, but if you're in a corp with a good refiner, it's not an immediate concern.

Hi Justin,
New to mining so could you explain to me how metallurgy and hydromagnetic physics are useful to mining?
Thanks,
Ross.

Metallurgy is needed for the ore-specific refining skills, and Hydro is needed for Ice Refining.

So they're tertiary in need at best.
