Hi guys, i'll probably have more questions in the near future as i'm helping someone with their college research project which is based around two MMOs WOW and EVE. So she has details on gold farming bots in WOW which or somehow within the rules and i don't know how.

But i was wondering waht is the best AFK mining ship and fit for a solo player? The risks involved? and their return VS actually playing the game they bay 15 euro a month for? That part amazes me, would you pay 15 a month for a sat tv and leave it running on a tv in a room you don't go into... crazy.

Any help will be great, being a PVP/PVE player i'm not much help in this area, thanks.

hulk

3x T1 strip miners
2x T2 cargo expanders
2x T2 (if u can afford it) or T1 cargo optimizer rigs

live in a low traffic system and risk is nearly none.

and they dont have to pay 15 euro a month, they buy PLEX with ISK...

Ok cool, ETFed that and it saying 18 minutes to fill the hold.

3 loads an hour, how much is that is Isk can you tell me?

This will vary depending on several factor, such as your skills, if the asteroid you are mining runs out before you check on your ship, which ores your are mining, minerals prices, the amount of time it takes you to warp to/from the station, and not to mention the amortized cost of being suicide ganked. Probably a few other variables I'm missing there too.

Ok thanks for the 'help' CEO....

I did a quick bit of math, very rough mind you. I came up with a figure of 3.6 Mill Isk if you pull 3 cargo loads of Veldspar an hour.

I'll pass the info along.

Most mining or refining questions end up with this.

Complete Mining 3.0

Nice tables on m^3 per hour. You just look up the current prices of where you will be selling it.

That mining guide doesn't take into account the variables that an afk miner would face. The ISK per hour is a decent guideline, but unless you remain in the belt it doesn't apply.

I'd say best afk would be ice high sec can have suicide gankers but hulk 2 t2 expanders and 2 t2 rigs highs t2 ice harvesters with lvl 4 exhumers will take ~33 mins for 18 units of ice at around 150k/unit is 5 million isk/hour are things that would make much better isk but not as easy to setup solo
