To shed some light on heavy drone 2 manufacturing. It requires 2 advanced science L5 skills (electronics engineering 5 and mechanical engineering 2). Imho anybody investing 2,560,000 SP just to make a damn drone deserves some profit.

This is a supreme understatement - I know someone who sold a wasp II BPO because he couldn't be bothered to take the time to train for 2 months to get the skills to build it. I'm sure this isn't an isolated case. So not only are you going to have a situation where there is a limited supply of BPO's but you will have a even much more limited supply of people who can actually build them - don't expect pricing to decrease anytime soon, it may actually go up.

I don't think so. There are plenty of science/manufacture characters in EVE who do nothing but build and sell. Even if 10x the BPOs were sent out, there would not be a skill bottleneck in the market. If I had to guess, your friend probably didn't have much trouble selling the wasp II BPO. Razz

Hell the BPCs for this one go for 1-2 mil per pop. So if the price to buy them is around 3-4 mil each then IMO that seems fair.

GL to all the ones getting these goodies ;) I've given up hope.. that way I'll be gladly surprised when my time comes. :D

The BPCs are cheap since it apparently takes less skills to make a BPC than to build them. I somehow have a hunch this is a bug, since for all other T2 BPs copying takes higher skills than manufacturing.

oh if its a bug i'll be a tad frosted. I'm only 31 days from using my ogre II bpo. Been copying it instead. If the skills were reversed that will choke me up a bit.

Its not a bug, its supposed to be like that. Why? Because CCP and most else I believe dont want escrow flooding over with t2 copies.

As for people selling drones at the price mentioned in this thread? thats like Stupid! this is a high consum item. You sell at lower price and sell more of them. Players want to actually use these drones, not put them in the hanger and call them "precious" Wink

I agree, but hell, I would buy them at 1mil tbh :) 30% damage bonus 4tw. My ishtar needs to do gankageddon damage!

But seriously, if anyone has a contact on wasp IIs, I'm in the market for lots, at 1.5mil apiece would be nice (as the 'zerker has settled about there price-wise).

this is another case in point supporting research agents dropping many tech 2 BPCs (1 or 2 runs) to a few more amoutns of players - and still keeping the rare tech 2 BPOs - it would allow more players to get their hands on em (not to many BPCs - perhaps 100 per day at most) but just enough to create some price competiton etc

I think you missed the point. On all T2 BPO:s except the drones, copying requires considerably higher skills than building. T2 drone BPOs are reversed in this respect. That's why I suggested the t2 drone BPOs might be bugged.

Less skills to copy, more to build is really the best way to prevent bpc floding, actually, it stops alot of bpc from even existing, because of the requirements to build them. perhaps this is how ccp wil control expendables bpo's, such as ammo and drones.

the drones do require about 2x the time to make a 1 run copy than to build one, though 30min build vs 1 hr copy/run isnt much of a deal.

Just for the record... it seems I was right for once Cool

T2 heavy drones are now much easier to build, we should see more drones on the market, and the price should fall.

Congrats to those who bought a heavy drone BPC before the patch.
