I’ve been learning how to use my Buzzard and exploration skills over the weekend, along with quite a bit of mining as well.  At first I just didn’t “get it” when I was trying to probe and this video (without commentary, just captions) finally cleared things up for me!   I was able to find ships quite easily, and drones and “hideouts.”  But some other targets were extraordinarily difficult to get a fix on, and I would give up on them.

I have pretty good skills: Level 5 Astrometrics, 4 pinpointing, and 4 acquisition. But I probably should get range finding up, it’s only at level 2…  I’m hoping that once I get that skill up to 4 or so, I’ll be able to hone in on some of those more difficult targets.  I’ve been using combat probes too, so that might be part of the issue, but from reading the descriptions, it seems that they’re the best probes you can get without making a major outlay of ISK on factional probes (like Sisters).  I’ll let ya’ know how it turns out after I get range finding up…

All in all, it’s been an interesting new experience in EVE, which is always good. I hope your adventures this week are going great – enjoy!
