Hauling For ISK – Opportunistic ISK

With Free To Play coming to EVE in the next few weeks, I've done a lot of work and thinking about how to best help them succeed in EVE Online.

I started with my many Alpha Clone Fitting Guides and plan one doing PVP Guides for the Alpha Clones, but nothing is possible without ISK.

Unfortunately there won't be many good ways for Alpha Clones to make ISK. They will have limited Trade Orders which will limit trade income, limit Missioning (possible Level 4 Missions with Gnosis for Caldari and Minmatar), and limited Industry.

What isn't quite as limited is Hauling. Yes, the Industrial skill will be limited to Level 1, but look what that allows:

Hauling to make ISK

That's almost 30,000m/3 that a Minmatar Alpha Clone will be able to run on a Mammoth!

What this means is that Location Based Arbitrage will be a great way for Alpha Clones to make ISK. Which is why I plan on doing two or three videos detailing how this is done.

In the first video I talk about a simple way to make ISK just by checking systems as you pass them. This is a slight variation of how you can do this in a more targeted way, which is what I will cover in my next video.

The tool I used to find these deal is the Deal Finder at EVE-Marketdata.com.

Important Safety Notes:

  1. Highsec Ganking happens. Do NOT Autopilot with over 50 Million ISK. Fly manually gate to gate at zero.
  2. Do not autopilot in Low Sec!
  3. Never carry all your ISK in one load. It will hurt too bad to get ganked.
  4. Study basic EVE Survival Tactics like you find in my Survival, Escape, and Evasion Guide.
