In the ever-changing ‘what do I want to do now’ world of EVE, I have a new goal for my miner, to become the greatest trader ever.
Or at least make some half decent ISK while learning about trading in EVE.
The reasoning for this is two-fold. One, I need ISK for that Hulk I want to buy but never have ISK for. Two, I think trading can be something that I can keep up with during those times I only have 30min to 1hr to play, too short a time span to complete a level 4 mission. It will also be a good way to stay active in EVE without having to always run missions or mine. Missions are still fun, especially when done with a fellow pilot, but I can’t grind them day in day out.
So it’s off to the market and to set up my trading empire. I did a quick Google search for trading guides, and it came up with some rather basic ones. If anyone knows of a good one, be sure to comment. My plan is to start slow and just get a feel for the local system, setting up a few basic orders and seeing how it goes. I believe with my current skills, I can set up something like 50 orders, so that should be enough to cover the ammo market at least. I’ll also have to see what fittings are popular and offer a decent margin. I’m sure plenty of mistakes will be made regardless, and hints or tips are appreciated!
