I’ve been trying to find an income source to fund my pvp, and while I’m finally close to L4 missions with the Caldari Peace & Order corporation, I’m sick of them. There’s a reason that it’s taken me so long into my career to finally graduate beyond L1 missions. I hate mission running.

At the suggest of some corpmates, I’ve begun trying ninja ratting in nullsec. This has more inherent danger than mission running, which means more excitement for me. I outfitted a new Harpy built soley for this purpose. A loadout was suggested by our resident EFT, Gah’Matar. Seriously, the guy’s got a knack for great fits without using EFT.

This has been handling rats like cake. Frigates, destroyers, cruisers, battleships, whatever. It can tank anything the Guristas can throw at it, and still dish out some decent DPS. I’ve been ratting in a decent spot of nullsec, a stationless system with several belts outside of d-scan range from gates, so I have ample time to safe up and cloak when local jumps. So far, the rewards have been good, with what appears to be a much better time to ISK return than my missioning accomplished. I was able to rack up about 10m ISK in about a half hour’s work. Not bad, an even if it’s short what I could be making running missions, they’re sooooo fucking boring. Give me a hairy run through low/nullsec and a region swarming with Russians over “Break Their Will” any day.

      Thanks for the tip, Manasi. I’ve been meaning to check out anomalies. Finally feel like I have the skills and know-how to survive in nullsec, so I’ll have to give ’em a try soon.
