Just curious if I have one of my characters be committed to mining in empire if it would be a good idea to get him some implants. If so, do I just buy them off the market or is there a better place?

Implants are well worth it for any character that is going to be doing much training. And more so for any character that will not be seing a lot of PVP thus is unlikely to lose them soon.

These will greatly reduce your training times.. You have a couple of options to get them, by far the easist is to simply buy them off of the market. You can check the market proper or Escrow to get around the taxes. You can also obtain the from agent missins or NPC Spawns, neither of which is a great option though if your mainly aminer.

Implants can be worth it, especially if you use the ones which boost the attributes of the skills you need as a miner.

Implants can either be bought from the market, or from Escrow

Another good place to get hold of implants is 'other' channel in trading category under the channels & mailing lists icon on the left hand side.

For a carebear, the implant will more than likely last much longer than for someone who's out fighting every night. If anything, expensive implants are more useful for someone like "one of your characters". Well, that is, if he needs to do some heavy training, or else implants are pointless.

as long as you know how to warp out as soon as your ship is blown up, you should never (unless their using a warp bubble) lose your pod.

i've had my full set of +3 implants, which i bought before they rose in price, even though i'm in the middle of the Fountain alliance killing tonnes of ships Very Happy

Is there some sort of reference that might tell me what a decent price is for implants? The market seems to vary wildly. I don't mind spending the money I just want to make sure I spend it wisely.

Also, are all implants the same? They either raise an attribute +1, +2, +3, etc. Is there different qualities of implants?

I just started doing lvl 2 missions... for a Minmatar security mission I had to destroy an Omen cruiser. In the cruiser loot I found a +3 memory implant worth 40 million isk.

First of all, this can happen?! Is this extremely rare? All I've been finding in loot so far has been junk.

Should I plug it in or sell it? I know the +3 memory would help with my training... but 40 million is a lot early on. I couldn't even afford a cruiser before this.

It s quite rare to have an implant as loot.
Most cases you get an implant are from important/storyline missions and in most cases +x where x = level of agent.

To buy or not to buy depends on your wallet but personally I d first get a good ship and the skills to be efficient in it.

If you can`t afford a cruiser and have the skills to be effective in it well sell the implant. The game will be a lot more fun in a cruiser and for 40 million you can have a very well fitted one.

Let me see.
Rupture with scout projectiles, xr heavy launchers in highs.
medium shield booster II, 10 mn afterburner II, EM hardener (anointed or better)
2 gyrostabilser II, 2 tracking enhancer II

And you ll probably still have money to spare.
