I've written before that in Eve, friends don't let friends mine. Of course, I don't always follow that advice and own a Covetor and an Orca when I get the urge to primary an asteroid or two.
Last night was one of those times I wanted to mine. I've been doing level 3 missions with the Brutor tribe to get some better rates selling items out of the main station in Rens and I had an Eve-mail in my inbox from a level 3 storyline agent. She wanted 10,000 units of Omber. That's only 2 cycles of mining for Wandering Rose, and Rosewalker's skills in an Orca cut the cycle time by 12 seconds. And the reward? A Social Adaptation Chip - Basic. Sure, it is a +3 charisma implant, but it lists for 8-10 million isk in Rens. I don't mind running mining lasers for 6 minutes for that much isk.
