1.)
Is it advisable to use the same agent continuously until an agent of a higher level available? Or use various agents? Or is it just personal preference?

2.) Is it possible to recover drones that one has warped away from? If so how do I 'relink' to 'em?

Thanks in advance and my apologies for asking questions that have probably been answered a million times.

go back to your drones and get real close (2000m?) then select (may need to target 1st, don't remember) and use Scoop to drone bay. abadoned drones will implode in 2hr just like other space junk.

Yes and no... it all kinda depends, and there's always the boredom factor :)

If the agent is very low quality, you may want to swap to a higher quality agent as soon as one is available, because you will benefit isk/standings/etc. far more quickly than with a low quality agent.

Swapping to an agent of a higher level as soon as one is available isn't always the best thing to do - usually, a lower level agent with high quality will pay better than a higher level agent with low quality.

If making higher level agents available is your primary goal, continuously use agents of the same corporation, switching agents to climb the agent quality ladder as higher quality agents become available.

Be sure to check out Eve-Agents.com to find agents.

Hope this helps some

Abandoned drones will stay in space for days if no one picks them up or kills them. A friend of mine got blown up and his drone is still sitting there a week later. I think they last as long as a GSC.

no clue when the drones despawn, but it's 2500m for the range, and you can just right click & scoop to either drone bay, or cargo.

Thank you all for the answers and advice. One thing I love about the leaning curve of Eve, is the numerous "ah ha" moments that are had.

Drone despawn like other Grabage after 30 days.

If you dont have any bookmark, you can scan probes to with Combat scanner probes.
