Daddy’s got a new ship

My Wreathe

Well, I’m still learning things the hard way. I’m not exactly sure purchasing a new ship (A Minmatar Wreathe) was exactly the smartest thing to do. It was the old “spend money to make money” situation, but I spent money to get money that was initially mine. Either way, this new ship is a beast. It comfortably holds my old Probe in its cargo holds with room to spare. It looks like a locomotive. Unfortunately, it runs like one, too. This thing is SLOW. But, I’ve been interested in exploring some of the industrial and manufacturing aspects of EVE and this ship should suit my purposes for now.

I’m currently on my way to deliver the cargo for the mission that I unwittingly got myself involved with that started this whole mess. It’s been an enlightening experience.

Please, kids, learn from my mistakes.

Update: This is what I’ve been waiting to see:

Mission Complete

Now I can breathe a sigh of relief and warp to my home base. 37 jumps away. Sheesh.

  1. Ouch – yes, you might want to avoid the Station Missions Courier page, as these are all set by players, and as such are generally either scams, (can’t fit the cargo, can’t get to the destination), or tend to pay a lot less than your time is worth; doing Agent missions, mining, or working the trade lanes will all pay more per hour. It can be nice to help other players move thier stuff about the galaxy, but don’t bust a gut on their account!

    Still, buying an Industrial of some sort is never a waste of money, and in my time I made far more money in my Badger MkII than any other ship. 🙂

  2. Tip: CTRL-F9 turns off the HUD for clean screenshots. Took me a while to figure it out.

  3. VH – that explains the high escrow I take it – they figured they’d get some sucker (me!) to accept their mission and then make off with my cash when I couldn’t finish it. Diabolical! I’ll make sure I keep that in mind.

    Ethic – thank you! That will make for much better screenshots.
