Don't suppose this is going to be updated any time soon is it? maybe with the ore mining lasers, gang mod changes and maybe the fun yeti implants?

How fast can a man mine ice with:
exhumers V
Ice mining V
Mining Upgrades V
Cybernetics V
Electronics V
'Yeti' BX-2
Mackinaw
2x Ice Harvester IIs
2x Firgoris Ice Mining Upgrade Is

And someone tanking for the rats with a Mining Foreman Mindlink and Warfare Link Specialist V running a Mining Foreman Link set for Laser Optimization?


Just wondering because that will be my set up next time my lazy arse goes to mine ice.Cool

Very Informative. Big Help in my mining career. This has to be the best guide ever, all the others offer too little info.

There are some problems with the given Retriever setup.

First, there is no way you can fit a MLU on a retriever, at least not with a PDU (Why a PDU?, there's power enough). Only with a strong co-processor +skills it works.
Second problem is: You don't have enough cargospace to hold 1 cycle of modulated strip miner 2 with t2 crystals. So, you'll need a expanded cargohold, ergo you cannot fit a MLU + CPU.

It looks like you suggest to use strip1 miners on a retriever, together with a MLU (if possible) you will get indeed less than 2000m3 / cycle. But before training to a covetor training to a modulated strip 2 with t2 crystals is more profitable. Or do you disagree?

Step 1 - Creating a mining character.

Surely this information is the first thing someone new to mining would want to know, step one after all is building a character for mining, there seems to be an assumption that the reader knows this already, which of course they probably don't.

What attributes are best for building a mining character for the long term?

A step by step guide to building a mining character would be ideal - race, stats, etc.

Halada one of my website visitors pointed out an error in your doc which I will correct on my site

Quote:
Skills you will need : Mining Barge 3, Industry 5, Astrogeology 5

I will assume here you trained Mining Barge to level 4 (3% bonus to yield per level) even though you only need level 3 to fly the retriever, as every little bits help. I'll also assume you trained Astrogeology to level 5, since it'll be required for the Covetor! While we're at it, since you're serious about mining, you will also have invested the time in training Mining to level 5 as well.


Skills you will need is astro L4 to fly the retriever.

He even wantta bed , i fly a bc whit mining foreman link - laser optimization + i got the skills Mining Dir , Mining foreman ,warfare link spec all on V

We had 2 macks ice mining both using alround tii ,he claimed that a 3 mack would give more then when i give bonus.

I have been nominated for best guide writer of the year at the eon awards, second time ugh

Thanks to whoever voted for me!

On a second note, I am working on a new version again.

- correcting mistakes
- character creation
- new gang links
- more in depth section on gang mining, like should I use my hulk or boost, when is it worth it, etc.

ETA is unknown!

I hope you continue to update this, it's an excellent guide. I remembered the guide from the first time I played and it's the first thing I looked for when I came back. Thanks for the good work.

Our corp has a Dedicated "Support" Pilot for Mining Operations. He has Maxed Leadership for Mining and the Implant as well. So if you need help with research let me know.

Agreed hands down the guide is truly immense. When the server is back up, I'm making a mining character (new to eve) so gutted that there isnt a guide to character creation, although i gather caldari would be best to start off with at least. keen on what the update contains

Just one thing, and it might already have been covered - I don't have the time to read a huge thread like this!

Not all Empire stations have 50% base. Some of them, last time I looked, have only 30% base. IIRC, they are the ones that have absolutely everything including medical and labs. Example; the two Kaalakiota stations in Heorah.

Most people will check before refining, but possibly not everyone will do so before piling up the ore!

That's already mentioned in the guide. There are even tables for each equipment refinery.

question for gang-mining.

i'm doubting between a scythe and a cane.

Cane:
Hi: 3x Co-Processor I, Mining Laser Upgrade I, 2x Expanded Cargohold II
Mid: Survey Scanner I
Low: Small Tractor Beam I, 6x Miner II
Drones: 5x Mining Drone I

Scythe

Hi: 2x Co-Processor I, Mining Laser Upgrade I
Mid: none
Low: Small Tractor Beam I, 3x Miner II

any tips/suggestions?

i can use up to BC's with minmatar, that's it for now ;)

OK so I'm curious, because I can't seem to find any definitive answers and I can't fly command ships yet...

But is it possible to fit three Laser Optimisation gang links on a fleet command, turn them all on and have their effects stack for the hulk fleet? Has anyone tested this? (I would but I can't fly a command for another 70 days :( )

And Halada...when there is a tested answer to this perhaps we could get it in the command ship section of the guide...so that those of us who use it as a mining bible of sorts have our answer right there. :)

Just wanted to say 'thank you' for taking the time and effort to compile and maintain such a thorough resource! I stumbled across it while looking for the answer to the question, How do I know which asteroids yield which ore? And there you were, not only with the answer to the question, but answers to many more questions and even a philosophy on the profession. It was so inspiring, it really gave me a whole new perspective on mining. All I was trying to do was finish a noob mission (obviously), and now I'm filled with a whole new incentive to pursue my mining career.

As a bonus, finding this made me look REAL good to my hubby and our roommate who have been playing EVE since beta, and only just recently took a serious interest in mining. Very Happy

Bravo!

Sadly know. It used to appear in the description that the bonus applied was not stackable.

You can just activate one :)

found an error, Top of Page 8 :

Finally there is ice, which is now only available in low-sec and 0.0.

I mine ice in high secure (Emolgranlan 0.5)

Haven't read all the manual yet, but already congrat you for that work.

Good guide. It was a huge pain in the ..... to get all skill training done.
But I am very happy I pulled trough.
Still not 100% skilled tho, so many things to train......

Perhaps you can put some tactics in, against thiefs and gankers.

Keep up the good work
