Eve Online Make Isk

Mining - Mining is one of the first activities players do to earn ISK in EVE Online. All you need is Mining skill on level I. It will allow you to equip any Frigate you own with a mining module called Miner I. Then take your ship to an Asteroid belt and start mining ore.

There are several methods to quickly make significant isk in game, but they usually require a combination of scamming, trading, luck (Nullsec faction or officer spawns), and teamwork (WH's, Incursions, Hi-difficulty Plex). Mining is a very passive form of making isk, usually very low stress and low profit. Making Isk with Mining Mining is the backbone of the EVE Online economy. All player ships, weapons and equipment are built from minerals mined by players. It is not as quick to make money as trading and salvaging can be, at least at first, but it has the potential to be the best and most consistent money-making activity in the game.

This page gives a quick overview of all ISK making activities that I covered in this blog, ordered by the ISK per hour value of the activity. This values were calculated as described in the linked blog post. If the activity has several level available (e.g. mission agents), ISK per hour values are posted for all levels. Each activity also lists a rough estimate of the ISK you need to get started as described in the post. These values can of course change over time by fluctuating market prices.

A quick disclaimer: I am by far not an expert in many of the described activities, so there might be more efficient ways of doing things than I did. Take this page as a rough indicator of how profitable the activities can be.

Market Trading For Alpha Clones = Easy ISK

One of the best ways to make quick ISK in EVE is Market Trading and as an Alpha Clone you can use it to either make Passive ISK or do it Actively to make ISK much faster.

Eve Online How To Make Isk

As I see it the three best ways to make ISK as an Alpha Clone are:

  1. Market Trading
  2. Exploration in Low and Null Sec
  3. Hauling

I've already done a little bit about the Hauling method, however I plan on doing a Alpha Specific Hauling Video with my Alpha Clone and a Exploration Guide with him soon.

Market Trading For ISK

When it comes to market trading it's all about Buying Low and Selling High. Pretty simple fundamentally however there are some small things you need to know to maximize the ISK you make.

Basic Rules For Trading:

  • Know your Break Even Percentage
  • Work to reduce your Break Even Percentage
  • Always trade items with Margins at least double your Break Even Margin
  • Trade items that are common and you understand
  • Trade items with volume in the Market Details Tab that shows it is actually selling in large volumes every day
  • The busier the trade hub, the more competition and the more turnover
  • The faster you churn items, the faster you make ISK

These are covered in the video, however I think they are worth putting in writing to cement them in your head.

Another great tip I talk about in the video is that you can create four Alpha Clone Accounts, one for each race. Then put one trading character at each of the four main trade hubs (Jita, Amarr, Dodixie, and Rens). These accounts are FREE to you but allow you to quadruple your available market orders to a total of 68 Orders. Now all you need to do is make 300 Million ISK per character to PLEX one account. Heck, if you want to go all in on this method you could do eight accounts.

Doing this actively by updating orders every five minutes for a hour or more will allow you to make very nice profits. It's not hard to turn 1 Million ISK into 10 million in an hour.
