First things first, I want to try to cover some new method of making money, and I am not sure what to commit to. I could try escrow scamming next, but that would require a lot of things. I would NEED to break one of my rules, and use some of worthless but rare inventory from my war-chest on my main. I sorta do not want to do that, but it would be an interesting project.
I think I might try some ninja salvaging after the weekend. It could be a fun way to piss off some mission runners! Ninja salvaging, for those who do not know, is the act of scanning down a mission runner and salvaging/looting there stuff. This requires a bit of practice and a fast ship. I will keep a detailed time sheet for this mini project, because I want to post exactly how much money a player can average doing this. I will start recording time when I reach the target mission hub, but before I launch even a single scan probe.
Trading wise, I have nothing new to report. I started trading in groups of ten for some items, because the margins suck in Jita on the more expensive things. Basically, what this means is that I take a item with a buy/sell order of 300k/600k, and I put up a buy order up for ten of them, 3 mil isk. Then I try and sell the ten as fast as I can for 600k or 6 mil. This trade would end up with a 3 million profit minus trade fees.
The problem with this kind of group trading is that I have to turn over 10 of one item, and depending on volume that can take a long time. Ideally, it would be better to find one item at 3 million and turn over just one at 6 mil. I found a few of these, but the volume is too slow. I can turn over 10 of the fast moving cheap items faster then one of the 3 million item. Actually, tomorrow will be a lesson in opportunity cost! Stay tuned!
