With the proper fittings you too can outmine a hulk
As soon as some nice new named variations of the mining upgrade come out

Steps:
-Get a rokh
-Take 5 Aoede mining laser upgrades and fit them to the low slots
-Take 8 miner IIs and fit them to the high slots
-Fit medium slots with your choice of fantastic variety

Go mining and do not forget to stagger lasers
Carpo variety will also be funVery Happy

You do realize the Devs have stated this will be nerfed soon right?

The Rokh has 625m3 capacity... you'd be drag-dropping the ore very often, compared to the hulk with its comfortable cargo bay.

8x Miner II's at 80tf each = 640tf cpu
5x Aoede mining upgrades at 34tf each = 170tf cpu = 810tf cpu before any other fittings

And thats not taking into account the 6% cpu penalty from each mining upgrade

A Rokh has 750tf cpu base

assuming you have the skills to fit that setup you will have to stagger your lasers
to prevent your tiny cargohold from over filling which means you will be
pulling in 200 - 300m3 every 5 - 7 seconds

thats a lot of drag/dropping to jet cans/hauler plus
you will seriously struggle to run an alt hauler at the same time with ore coming in every 5 - 7 seconds.

whereas with a hulk you only have to drag ore to can/hauler every 3 minutes
and can comfortably haul your ore back to station between cycles.

Altho technically possible to achieve the above setup i don't see mining BS's becoming
widely used over a hulk, except maybe in 0.0

would be interesting to try out such a setup tho, assuming i had 3.5 billion isk to
spend on 5 Aoede Mining Upgrade I'sVery Happy

I thought the dev's have said that they are not dropping properly and they are going ot be fixing the drop rate this week?

The drop rate is lower then they planned.

Anybody who invests in these things before CCP nerfs/fixes them is going to be crying here on the forums later.

Where exactly do these things come from anyway? NPC drops? Exploration drops? LP offers?
