I have been easing back into Eve after doing nothing but occasional update my extractors and monitor my training queue. Even though it has only been a month, it took a bit to re-orient myself. It is hard to imagine coming back after 6 months or more.
Things have changed a bit in my home PI system. When I left nearly a month ago it was a fairly busy system. I returned because my launch pads and storage silos were completely full and needed to be emptied. So far after a few hours in the system on the weekend, I have barely seen anybody. I did some scanning and found a couple of wormholes. One of them was a connection to null sec. I checked it out, but it only went to the drone regions. With the new chance to drop Stratios or Astero tokens, it might be worth trying a combat site there, but I didn’t see any. The second wormhole was an X702. That is probably my favorite wormhole just because of the possibilities. (side explanation – an X702 is a non-static inbound connection to a C3 class wormhole space. Since a C3 will always have a static outbound connection to empire space this guarantees a connection).
I entered the wormhole and saw I had visited before. I had a handful of bookmarks already and there were only 2 signatures. There was the K162 that I came in on and staticmapper told me that there was an expected HS connection. Perfect. I scanned it down and entered it and found myself 4 jumps from Jita. Sweet.
I bookmarked everything and returned to my base. I loaded up all my non-PI goods into my Tengu and made the 2 jumps depositing about 1.6 billion ISK worth of goods. I came back and loaded up my Epithal with another 300 million ISK worth of PI goods and made the trip again. Once it was all deposited at the station, I contracted it to Push-X industries for the 4 jumps to Jita and returned home. Given that I am about a dozen jumps into lowec and over 30 jumps from Jita, this was about as perfect a setup as I could ask for. In fact, it was just what I wanted when I setup my PI as dicussed before. I love wormholes. I think they are one of the most creative and interesting additions to the game.
