Progress Report - March 2013


Report on the status and progress of all my characters as of 01 March 2013. Mostly Trade oriented since making ISK is my main focus and trading is how I make ISK.

I buy and sell skill-books, faction/deadspace mods and implants covering all 5 main trade hubs (Jita, Amarr, Dodixie,  Hek and Rens) plus a few regions that don't have a major trade hub. I play fairly casually and update orders infrequently. Some characters get updated more often than others and I update sell orders more consistently than buy orders.

In February I slowed down my order posting/updating frequency again. I made another 13 billion, the same as in January.



Current net worth is 106 billion with around 3/4 of it in cash and market escrow. Most of the rest is in sell orders and recently acquired stock I haven't gotten around to posting for sale yet. Very little is in assets I don't intend to sell soon, a few ships and some mods I stock for my own use, maybe 2 billion in total.

That's my actual current total net worth, I don't pad the numbers by counting ISK I've earned but have since spent and no longer have. That'd be like calling myself a real life millionaire because I've earned over a million dollars during my life when the reality is I've never had anywhere near a million in total.

Account 1

My first account. This is the account my main started on. I've since transferred the main to his own account so he never has to share the training queue again and these two can train harder.

Couster Regional Trader, 269 buy orders, Tycoon IV, Wholesale V, Accounting IV, Broker Relations IV, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Buys a bunch of different things, transports to Dodixie and contracts to the main trader there for resale.

Tash Murkon Regional Trader. 125 buy orders, Wholesale IV, Accounting IV, Broker Relations IV, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Just started working this area, she'll probably wind up up mostly buying and transporting goods to Amarr for sale. Currently training Wholesale V.

Account 2

Amarr Station Trader. 305 orders (maxed), Tycoon V, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Does nothing but station trade. Finished training trade skills.

Dodixie Station Trader 305 orders, Tycoon V, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Does nothing but station trade. Finished training trade skills.

Rens Station Trader 273 orders, Tycoon IV, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V, does nothing but station trade.  Currently training Tycoon V.

Account 3

Lonetrek Regional Trader. 305 orders, Tycoon V, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V Daytrading V and the rest of the remote order skills at IV. Mainly a buyer, does sell a few things but mostly just buys, flies to Jita and contracts goods to my two traders there for resale. Finished training trade skills.

Jita Station Trader 269 orders, Tycoon IV, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V, Marketing IV, Daytrading IV. Does nothing but station trade implants and mods. Currently training Tycoon V.

Moved the Hek trader to a new account so Lonetrek can hog the queue for a while without holding back Hek's training.

Account 4

Jita Station Trader, 269 orders, Tycoon IV, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Does nothing but station trade skillbooks. Finished training trade skills for now.

Exploration / Scout / Scanning pilot, flies Covert Ops (Buzzards) and is training Int/Mem support/scanning/exploration skills. Has all Astrometric skills at IV, most shield, navigation, fitting and exploration skills at IV or V. I don't plan on doing any serious trading on this character. He has 29 order slots, more than enough to buy things he needs and that's about it. Currently training Energy Management V.

Account 5

My Main, all by himself on his own account now and concentrating mainly on Per/Wil combat skills. 125 orders, Wholesale IV, Accounting IV, Broker Relations IV, Margin Trading IV and all of the "remote order" trade skills at IV. He's not heavily involved in trade but does a little low maintenance ninja trading and lowball purchasing in various places. Currently training Energy Management V.

Account 6

Hek Station Trader 269 orders, Tycoon IV, Accounting V, Broker Relations V, Margin Trading V and all remote order skills at IV. Does nothing but station trade. Currently training Tycoon V.

Yet another trader. New character, trained Trade III, has Retail injected (but not trained yet) and already bought Broker Relations, Accounting and Margin Trading books to learn later. Won't train any further until Hek learns Tycoon V, Trade V and Daytrading V.

Future plans

Overall I've been slowly working Regional Trade back into my trading strategy. Less work and higher profits per item though total profits aren't as high. I've gotten all remote order skills to IV on all my traders and started placing a mix of both station and regional orders on several of them. I'll get Daytrading V on several characters and maybe Marketing V on a few too.

I might start a 3rd Jita trader to use as a price capper to stabilize prices on certain high volume, absurdly heavily camped items and hopefully chase some of the no-lifers and bots off those items. I could always use more traders to work a few more regions I'm not currently working too.

Get the Couster trader Broker Relations V, Accounting V, then the same for Tash Murkon. Then remap Int/Mem and work on flying support skills (mainly Navigation, Engineering and Electronics skills) for both characters. Will probably train both characters into Covert Ops too and might train one into Blockade Runners.

My main just got Shield Management V and will learn Energy Management V soon too but mostly he'll just keep working on getting more missile skills to V. I really don't care for flying big slow ships so battleships are rather low priority for me but I'll eventually get Caldari Battleships IV and Gallente Battleships 1 - IV so I can fly Rattlesnakes. The skills I need for ships I really do want to fly are Caldari Cruisers V, Strategic Cruisers (Tengu), Recon and maybe Black Ops. He'll probably stay in the Per/Wil remap for at least another 6 months and get basic Gunnery skills to at least IV too.

Get Tycoon V and Trade V on Rens. Get Daytrading V on all 3 characters and maybe Marketing V too. Train Covert Ops and remap Int/Mem for support skills training. Eventually I'll probably train something besides Trade (Industry maybe) on Amarr or Dodixie. Or I might transfer one of the "finished" characters to account 1 or 5 and start training up a new character on account 2.

Continue training Int/Mem support skills on the exploration/scout/scanning character. Long term this character will continue following the Covert Ops line into Recon cruisers and eventually Black Ops battleships. At some point I'll get Tycoon V and Trade V on the Jita skill-book trader too.

Remap Lonetrek to Int/Mem and start training for Covert Ops. Yes Cov Ops is Per/Wil, but the prereqs and support skills needed to fly Cov Ops well are Int/Mem. Weapon skills don't matter, he's a trader not a fighter. Eventually get Tycoon V and Trade V on the Jita implants and mods trader too.

Train Tycoon V and Trade V on the Hek trader. After that train Cov Ops on Hek and train up trade skills on the new character. The new trader will probably eventually take over the Rens business so I can send the old Rens character out to help expand into new regions.
