All toons should be in WE ARE GROOT and auth’d on the alt spreadsheet. If we find toons not in these groups, they will be engaged. Toons in Who Dares Wins. are acceptable.

Ratting In Nullsec

Ratting in lowsec is the most commonly executed money making technique in the game. It is easy to do, a low initial investment and is very easily scalable! Also, now you can use Alpha Clones (if you change the T2 Heavy Drones to Faction).

Words of Warning!

Always watch local - if any neutral or suspicious characters appear then GTFO. People being lazy while ratting is probably about 20% of the KILLS we get as an alliance, don't be one of those people.

Drone Subcap Guide:

Note, in Summer 2019 the VNI recieved a Drone Bay nerf, and as such has less ISK/Hour.

Be on the lookout for Faction “True Sansha” spawns in the final wave of Havens, as they will drop faction loot. Finally beware of NPC Dreadnought spawns as they will make you go POP!

Carrier Guide

Some fitting variation but you do you honey.

Ensure you are aligned to a friendly structure at all times after landing on grid. The changes to the Network Sensor Array mean that while the unit is active you CANNOT warp. You can still use the omni at risk, or change your fit for dual Sensor Boosters with Scan Resolution Scripts.

Carrier Ratting in a Warzone

How to not fly your ratting carrier...

Our space in Providence is not safe, so an interesting way to run is with no NSA - meaning you warp away like an old school ratting carrier. 3 sensor boosters will never make you lock as fast as an NSA, but with good planning, you can make some great ninja level iskies in semi safe systems!

We always advise to have a scout at a choke point and have all local Wormholes rolled before beginning.
