This guide is to teach Alpha players how to safely mine in Low/Null security space. All ships and equipment in this walkthrough are Alpha friendly.

Low/Nullsec venture fitting

One of the most important things when you are mining in PVP friendly space is your ship fitting. I will include a basic fitting and an improved version, both of which are Alpha friendly.

Where and How to Mine Safely

Where to Mine

Mining location is just as important as ship fitting. There should only be friendly players in the system you are mining in, if anyone else warps into the system, be prepared to warp and dock at the nearest station. Mining at anomalies is usually more profitable, so I recommend prioritizing mining anomalies over asteroid belts, although both will net you good ISK.

How to Mine Safely

 

  • Arrival

Once you warp into a belt or anomaly, immediately check your overview for pirates or hostile players. If there are any, warp to the nearest station, if there is a hostile player, I recommend docking or fleeing the system. In a Venture, you should avoid combat at all cost.

  • Mining

Once you find a safe place to mine, use your microwarpdrive or afterburner to move to the furthest asteroid that you want to mine, that way you have more time to flee the system if a player warps in.

Once you find an asteroid, lock onto it and stop your ship (it should be around 4000M away). Then go to your overview and align to the nearest station or jump gate and then stop your ship once it is aligned. Aligning significantly reduces the amount of time it takes to warp to a location. Once you are aligned you can begin mining.

If you have friends or friendly players who enjoy mining, I recommend mining in groups. There are more people looking out for threats, and there is a higher chance of escape.

If anyone enters the belt or anomaly, warp to the point you aligned to and dock or flee the system.

How to counter hostile players

Local chat

Always have local chat open when you are mining. You are able to tell exactly who is in the system, even if they are cloaked they will still show up on the chat list.

Directional Scan

If someone shows up in local chat, start using directional scans (use the circle shape) to see if they are near you. If you pick up a ship, change your scan radius to .25 AU. If they show up again, it means they are warping to you. If that happens warp to where you were aligned to and dock or flee the system.

Stay Alert

If a player warps to where you are mining, don’t panic. Immediately warp to where you are aligned to and then flee the system. If you dock, there is a chance the player will camp outside the station for several minutes, so it is better to get about 3-4 systems away.

Thanks for reading, if you found this helpful think about leaving a thumbs up, or a rating.
