Moving back into WH life...Found a Class 1

So Sunday night I was scanning...just to see if I could find another WH and what things inside were looking like. From talking to other people in game and reading a few other seemed that alot of people are finding that the WH's are more and more occupied. So i didnt expect to find anything worth while.

However before i logged last scan...BAM...found me a Wormhole. Again with no real expectations, I decided to take a looksy inside. What I found was an Class 1 that was not occupied. On first inital scan of the system...33 Cosmic Anaomlies and 19 Cosmic Signatures....OH YES...I did the most unprepared move in ever. I didnt have any WH kits ready to go...and my normal routine consisted of packing up the ocra and going mobile style. However...this class one brought a new aspect to my attention that I forgot....Orcas dont fit...and neither do Transport ships...ARGGH....ok.

So I quickly start buying things:

1 small Gallente tower
2 weeks worth of fuel
1 corp hangar

Ok so i should be good...and it was a race against time, because the WH was near closing...I get my scan alt in so if anything was to happen i could find it again. I get Enyo into the WH with the Drake...and alala is flying all over creation to pick up the needed materials...I get Alala to the WH...I see the WH...I go to Click the "enter" button...i see no more WH...It literally closed right then and there.

*SIGH*...ok so on my drake i do have scan i commence to start scanning the signature to find the new WH. In doing this i found quite a few LADAR and Grav sites. I didnt keep track because i was looking for that unknown status. But luck prevails and I didnt have to scan down every signature...I locate the new WH and find out that it appears that I have a Static Low...which i am actually happy about...should be less traffic. So now I pack everything into the ORCA and make my 19 jump trip to the closest high sec. ***Oh and this happened to be around Old Man Star (I think that is the system name)***. I pull out the badger and pack in the POS, hangar, SMA, and a week of fuel. I started jumping through the low sec systems with my heart just pounding expecting to get caught.

Now I make it to the i figure hellz yeah...all lights are green...I start to deploy the POS so my toons have a place to Sit...Start putting the fuel into the POS ....and guess what...I got the wrong Isotopes...I have minmatar fuel and not gallente...*ANOTHER SIGH* back into low sec with the badger to find fuel.

*Fuel gathered...POS Launched...Logged for the Night*

Now last night...excited about my new found treasure WH...I log on expecting to see that Beautiful message that the grid needs to load....No message...(*$#%(#@_)@(# and all that. lets see who is in my new home. ok no worries. This guy actually warped to the POS too so i had all the info i needed. Russian, 3 man corp...and he also had an alt in the WH with a Cheetah. So me and him played cat and mouse for awhile. He did manage to get my scan alt and just destroyed the ship and left the POD...not sure why but ok. So I start clearing sites...not really worried about this guy...he was staying cloaked. Now i get about two sites cleared and figure'd i should start Salvaging.

I always fit a cloak on non-combat i am out salvaging and i see combat probes (with russian name) out in no worries...I cloak. 30 sec later...the probes go away...So i start to continue a few wreck dissappear from his his combat probes come out again....I see them so i cloak...*Nothing better or funnier the ninja salvaging your own kills*  We repeat this process for about an hour or two. I even started to clear sites again...with using this same process...Eventually Mr.Russian got tired of playing games and I didnt see combat probes again. So either he logged or he decided to leave the WH.

Looking at my salvage last night, I think so far I am running around 100million isk worth of loot. Not too shabby for a Class 1. And depending how much more I can pull in through the combat sites...I am thinking about bring in a large POS to hit up the Grav sites. Last night I only ran 7 sites. And i figured it up time wise...I can run, clear, and salvage 3 sites in 1 hour. So two hours of work netting me around 100mil...

SO happy that i have moved back into WH...and I will probably stay with WH now for awhile. I am actually curious on how long I can live in my current WH and still be productive. Tonight i will see if anymore sites spawn'ed. But till then...Fly safe and fly smart!


  1. Hey great post. Yeah that's interesting. I guess I just always discounted C1 WH's. Glad to see you're making a nice profit. Hey, just out of curiousity, is it just the drake that you're taking into combat sites?

  2. Yes sir, you would be correct. I will be adding in another ship on Alala. I just didnt have time to get things just right moving in. It was definitely a rushed move. And when I return back to K-Space, I will be getting my WH kits ready to go. Contact me in-game and I will share fitting info.
