So it is time to arm ourselves with Mining Lasers and tear those asteroids apart. In Eve, the term "Mining" is commonly used to describe three distinct resource-gathering activities: Ore Mining - Extracting ore from asteroids. Ore can be sold or refined in order to get Minerals. Ice Harvesting - Gathering resources from so-called Ice Belts. Refined Ice is used to fuel Jump Drives of capital ships, and for manufacturing fuel for Starbases among other things.
This activity requires specialized drones or modules and is generally less profitable than Ore Mining because of a long Ice Belts respawn timer. Gas Cloud Harvesting - Vacuuming gas from interstellar clouds. Collecting it requires a gas cloud harvester module.
In this guide, we will take a closer look at wide understood Mining in the Eve Online. Most of the information will be directed to the new players, but old hands will find something for themselves as well.
We will cover mining-related skills, modules, ships, ship fitting, and mining strategies which will increase your gathering efficiency. Skills The importance of skills cannot be underestimated.
The basic set of skills will enable you to start your Mining endeavors, while more advanced set will greatly increase your gathering efficiency, which will have a large impact on your income. We also cannot forget about skills which will allow you to pilot specific mining and industrial Spaceships on Skill level 1 , and increase bonuses that they provide on all skill levels ; both Ships and Skills corresponding with them will be covered in further sections of this guide.
You can use the following module list to determine the best ship setup for the mining activity of your choice: Module Name High Power Modules: Mining Lasers These are the basic Mining Modules used for Mining Ore from Asteroids; they require a free turret slot and have a second cycle time.
Those Crystals increase the efficiency of mining specific Ores, corresponding with a Crystal type, and therefore increase the mining yield of those Ores, but have no impact on yield of other types of Ore.
Modulated Mining Modules used without Mining Crystals will provide less yield per minute than their regular counterparts. For the maximum Mining Efficiency, multiple kinds of Mining Crystals should be carried and swapped when a specific type of Ore is encountered.
Medium Power Modules: Survey Scanners They enable you to scan nearby asteroids in order to determine which of them contain the most resources. This module will increase your mining efficiency, by allowing you to chose asteroids that contain the most Ore. The severe computing penalty and small overall yield of Mining Drones make these Rigs not worth using. Drones: Ore Mining Drones These will mine the asteroid that you have targetted. If you plan to mine resources in dangerous areas it would be a good idea to invest in those.
Now, that you have the information about all important mining-related skills and modules, it is time to take a closer look at ship types most commonly used for Mining related operations.
They are adapted for salvaging and mining missions and lack offensive capabilities, but their shields are very powerful, and they commonly utilize drones for self-defense. Choosing the right ship for the job might be a difficult task, so we have prepared a list of all available ORE Mining-related ship types which will let you chose the one that is best suited for your particular needs. They are rather small, quite fragile, and their cargo space is limited.
Ships of this type: Venture - Most likely the first Mining Ship that you will ever own, as it is a reward for completing the second mission of the Career Tutorial. They are able to fit advanced Cloaking Devices, and support bonuses for them which increases their survivability greatly and makes them well-suited for Mining operations in Nullsec and Wormhole space. This ship was designed for Ice Harvesting and has improved ice mining systems mounted because of that.
Thanks to this the Prospect is ideal for conducting Mining operations in even the most hostile Space. Mining Barges Description - The next step in the evolution of the Mining ships. Mining Barges boast large Ore bays and good defensive capabilities except the Covetor. They are able to fit Ice Miners and Strip Miners which increases their mining and harvesting efficiencies greatly. This huge capacity and the ability to fit strong defensive modules makes it ideal for solo Mining endeavors.
It is by far the hardest to destroy of the three, even with subpar or budget module choices. It is able to mine Ore at the speed comparable to the Retriever which combined with its tanky nature, and bonuses to defensive drones make it a very solid choice for mining in Nullsec, Lowsec, and Wormhole Space. These ships were designed as direct upgrades from their Tech I counterparts, and as such, they boast depending on a model Large Ore Bays, Great Toughness, and solid Mining yield and efficiency.
This ship, although pretty tough pales in comparison to Skiff, which combined with its high price tag limits its usage in solo Mining to Hisec Space. As a result, Hulk is suited only for Hisec and Corporate Mining operations. Its toughness is truly impressive and with proper Module selection, this ship can take a punishment that would cripple even some battleships. It also has quite impressive engines, so hostiles will have a hard time keeping up during a chase.
They boast vast Ore bays which enable them to store resources gathered by smaller vessels. These ships are also able to mount the Mining Foreman Bursts which improve yields of up to other ships in the Mining fleet. The ship is also able to fit a large number of MEdium Power modules, which makes it one of the toughest haulers in the game. It boasts good mobility, above average agility, very descent warp speed, and a quite low price tag; it also provides its fleet with bonuses similar to those of the Orca.
Thanks to these properties, the Porpoise is best suited for Mining fleet support in dangerous areas. Capital Industrial Ships Description - These ships were designed to help in large-scale Mining operations. They give massive bonuses to other Mining fleet ships and are able to compress ore, which makes it easier to transport in large quantities.
Capital Industrial Ships also boast Maintenance and Clone bays, however, they must be anchored in order to use those modules or the Ore compression systems.
Thanks to its fleet-wide Mining bonuses, and the ability to compress Ore, the Rorqual is the backbone of any large Nullsec Mining Fleet. Thanks to its toughness, and strong Combat Drone bonuses it can also hold the line against attackers. The basic Venture setup and Mining strategy If you are interested in this chapter, you probably have just finished the Career Tutorial and got your hands on a brand new Venture type Mining Frigate.
We do not recommend using this setup in areas other than Hisec, for obvious reasons. Some efficiency-improving tips for players new to Mining will also be featured in this section. Two of them might be enough to protect you from NPC pirates roaming the Hisec asteroid fields; They require Light Drone Operation I, and Drones III Now, that your Venture is fully optimized for Mining and Survivability, it is time to find an Asteroid Belt those can be found via the overview menu , warp to it, scan it with your Survey Scanner, and proceed to mine asteroids with the most resources available in them.
The next question is - what to do with gathered Ore? There are two basic options; you can either sell or refine it. You should calculate your projected income from refining resources and compare it with the amount of ISK that you would gain from just selling those resources; you should then chose the more profitable option.
After the Mining is finished, you may swap your Mining Ship for another vessel with a larger Cargo hold, and collect your containers. This will save you a lot of time which you would otherwise spend on flying back and forth. There is one important problem, however Use Secure Cargo Containers - This is the more secure, but also the more expensive variant of the Jettison strategy.
When your Ore bay is filled up, you dump your Ore to these containers, and when all of them are full, you swap ships and collect the containers. Use Mobile Tractor Units - This strategy is by far the most expensive.
This Structures will collect materials ejected near them. Utilizing those works the same as utilizing Cargo Containers. However, please remember that maximum deployment time of Mobile Tractor Units is 48 hours they will disappear after that time , and that these Structures can be destroyed by hostile players.
The much more advanced version of this tactic which often involves Industrial Command Ships and Capital Industrial Ships is often employed by Industry-focused Player Corporations. If we have missed a piece of information that is important to you, please let us know!
