Comments: It has been 30 days since I last docked my main. In that time, my alt has docked 4 times. He 1)picked up missiles at a station, 2)picked up skillbooks at another station, 3)bought some morphite at another station, and 4) dropped loot at a highsec station for shipment to Jita. This project will probably continue indefinitely. My main may never dock again (unless he gets podded or I feel compelled to restyle my profile pic).
I have had several short sessions of playtime over the last week. Most of them have been nothing. I ran a minor and regular blood annex with little loot and no escalation. I ran a couple of relic and data sites just because I wasn’t finding anything else. I haven’t seen a Ghost site in lowsec in probably 3 months. I have followed a couple of wormholes into nullsec and found nothing. Basically, I was having a pretty dry run at exploration. It happens.
That changed tonight. I was running the same systems (in reverse) that I had run a couple of days ago. This time I found a Sanshas Minor Annex. I ran it, it dropped about 230M isk in loot and it escalated. Nice. On my way to the escalation, I found a Crimson Hand Supply Depot and decided to run it as well. The last time I ran this, I got basically nothing. This time, I got a Cynabal BPC (120M isk), a Corpum A-Type Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane (1,000M isk), and a couple of other Corpum A-type items. My total haul for the 2 sites was over 1.4 Billion isk.
I should still have the opportunity to run the escalation tonight so I will see if that turns into anything. (It did).
