Easy ways to earn isk for a rookie pilot

Post by Auspur »

Hello all,

Being new to Eve Online, what are some easy ways for a rookie pilot to earn isk? I am currently running distribution missions on an alt while I train my main character. Any other suggestion would be greatly appreciated. This is one of my first posts here.

Thank you

There is a multitude of ways to make ISK in this game so anything anyone tells you is also a personal choice.

That beign said (and it being my personal opinion ;) ):
Exploration is one of the easiest ways too make money fast in the beginning due to a really low entry bar in skills and isk investment.

I shall use this to shamelessly plug my upcoming class tomorrow that deals with Exploration:

I would suggest mining. Mining is the basis for all commerce in EVE (Well, most of it). Don't refine it. Sell the ore. If you compress it, even a Venture can carry a lot of ore if you are transporting it for the best price. Otherwise, sell it locally. I think the HSC buyback program buys ore. If not, just check the market in either Amygnon or Juffitte.

Mining, Exploration, and Ratting are good.

There’s also the Project Discovery minigame.

While not a replacement for playing EVE, it does net you almost 100k ISK per entry once you get your accuracy maxed out. Good way for a starting newbro to get a few extra T1 frigates and modules. And you can do it while traveling (at least through hisec :) ) or mining.

+1 on Exploration. I particularly like that you get an education in how to survive in LS or WH as you explore. I learnt a lot from exploring from HSC into the LowSec loop around Agoze, as well as making plenty of ISK.
