Run#2

Amped 2 lvl 5amps.


TT OUT 563

TT IN 543.

Return% 96%

So just to clarify, the RE 105 is for PVP only!. using tt finder for other runs.

Overall MU was pretty much avg 105%. not a great area but was looking for a specific ores which i didn't find sadly.....

No globals so far, but im sure to hit one soon.....

Not bad average mu for such a dead planet as some claim. 😂

Be consistent with your runs, you will do fine. Mining is all about patient. GL

Run# 6 3 lvl 5 amps

TT OUT 762

TT IN 690

Return% 90%

So, a little back story about this run. This was supposed to be a pvp run, but i chose the wrong day to do that and definitely wrong time. Got looted for 35 ped( lost wayyyy more in the past pvp mining) but the reason i decided to stop pvp after that was cause of the lyst waves which pvp is prone to at times. While hitting blood moss / fire root and cave sap is good, pyrite is why we go to pvp anyways. Also it seems more crowded than normal. Maybe a lot of people gone broke during migration trying to get some free mu :ROFLMAO: .

Anyways not a bad run by far. Did the desert area and found some frakite and bismuth along with dianthus and erdorium. Doesn't matter that i didn't global, im way past the phase in my mining career where i used to crave for globals. I think overall im doing okay. will be posting my nxt run tommorow and close off the last run day after. Will make a list of all i found once thats done.

TT out 315

TT in 752

So apparently unamped compensates for no big hoffs while amping :XD. Hit a gazz for 490 ped. Also hit a large dianthus. Im more than recovered for now:yay:

Run# 8

Run 2 lvl 5 amps

TT OUT 657

TT IN 527

Return% 80%

Final run went as expected after the last one. Also i focused a bit too much on the desert area which is partly my bad.

So if we are to now calculate our final return:- 907%/ 8 runs averages a return of 113% per run.

Final Stats:-

Total TT OUT 5174

Total TT IN 5046

Net Gross Return :- 97.54%

This is a callout to whoever keep cribbing that mining isnt good or its "broken". The returns speak for themselves. I would encourage more people to pick up mining and track your results over time. Short runs may not be good, as i have hit 79-80% myself on a few runs. but you just got to keep cycling.

List of Ores/Enmats found including Treasures and SOOTO:- (Will update later, off to work now.)

Good runs so far! As everything in EU - consistency is key, keep dropping, keep cycling, mitigate swings and streaks of bad luck through just more dropping.

I think the larger problem that people have with mining tends to focus on the micro level without considering the macro. Your runs seem fair (though I'm a little confused about which numbers you present are TT values and which include markup - it could be nice to also see those if you track them).

Agreed. i have not considered markup for any returns yet. thats gonna take a while. my returns are purely TT. My TT out includes MU for amps and tt of finder and excavator used.

Yeah, from what I've seen, players who get the most out of mining are really focused on the marginal gains they can squeeze out.

Imp Excavator / TT Excavator, if you use F-105 or worse you can lose maybe 0.5-1% in tt on your run alone to excavating
Refiners: Also can eat into returns if you're finding a lot of lyst, oil and other low tt stack size items.
Finders: Pre-amped RT finders, and high end (L) ones all come at a premium when you factor in drop cost + MU. Though depending on what amps you use, these can actually decrease your average cost in markup.

With an average 95% tt return you're still looking at needing >107% average markup to profit on average, which is definitely doable when you stockpile and keep an eye on the market (also wtf Sweetstuff?) - so the more you minimize these costs the larger your profit margin is.

But running 101% self-crafted D class on very large runs forever isn't for everyone.

SOOTO:-

10 Mining Boxes (Avg Mu 16 ped per box at current day)

Needless to say I made profit on Bismuth alone. The rest were just cherries on the cake :yay:

I wish I had a way to give you my exact returns with MU but its a lot of trouble to keep track of it while im continuously cycling and i dont know when i will put certain items like pyrite, dianthus ,garcen with erdorium for sale....
