Easy ISK For Alpha Clones – New Player ISK Guide

With the Ascension Expansion coming up on November 15th EVE Online will see a large influx of new players.

While they learn the game and build up their Skill Points they will need a way to make ISK. So I did some thinking and found what I think is possibly the easiest most reliable way to make ISK starting on Day 1 with no skills trained yet.

This ISK Making Method is easy and very low risk. Simply Autopilot away from Jita, pickup a ship, and fly it back to Jita.

Imagine this Real World Scenario:

Let's say California passed a law requiring all passenger vehicles be Hybrids or Electric Only within 5 years. This would cause prices of these cars to go up in California as demand increased while older Gasoline Powered cars would plummet in value as people tried to dump to a market that's not buying them anymore.

A smart business move in this case would be to purchase a Hybrid or Electric Car in another state, drive it to California where it would then sell for a premium, then buy a under priced Gasoline Car and drive it back to a state with a Hybrid or Electric for sale at a good price.

This whole concept exploits price differences in different locations.

The same is true in EVE Online although the reasons are different and vary wildly.

An example from my own experience was when my alliance moved across the universe and I didn't want to move everything. To make things easier I listed my ships on the local market at a discount so they would sell faster.

Doing this opened up an opportunity for someone willing to come get the ship and move it to a market where it would sell at a higher price.

This type of thing happens constantly in EVE where a ship in one location is cheaper than it is in Jita. As a result a pilot can simply move the ship to Jita and make a profit. Best of all, this can be done on Autopilot!

To find these deals you will need to use a website like EVE-MarketData.com or EVE-Central.com to compare prices across the EVE Universe. I prefer EVE-MarketData.com because it has more features and allows you to see the distance from Jita.

To show you exactly how this works I made a complete video guide that shows you everything you need to do to start with as little as 300,000 ISK and easily build that up to 50-100 Million ISK while autopiloting and building up your Skill Points.
