Shall I tell you something interesting?
I am currently flying the EPIC Arcs of the individual empires. Although I’m currently taking a break for one or the other game and therefore not 100% active.
But the implants are somehow a topic, which is relatively stepmotherly treated with me. On the one hand, good implants are damn expensive and on the other hand, I only use them when I need them.
To get 1% to 3% more out of a ship is possible for me with the standard parts and is usually enough for me.
Everything else costs me personally too much money and has no goal for me or better put, the price / performance is poor in my eyes.
The only thing where I spend more are the standard 4% implants in slots 1-5 which reduce my skill times a bit. Whereby I would probably achieve more with an adjustment of the base points or would drive even more optimal.
However, I think that I have never used this option on Sendriss.
You see. I’m not a fan of optimizing to the last point.
Since I’m basically in highsec, I’ve gotten used to using optimized jump clones for the few ships I fly. These are only a handful and I basically use whatever fits best.
This brings us back to the entry point from above.
I already fly as mentioned my Ishtar and for me the implants for learning are usually the more important, therefore most slots are rather as well as optimally occupied or as in this case as good as not at all.
Den I could successfully determine that I have a Mining Foreman Mindlink in it, which is super optimal. Namely not at all. So I need a new jump clone.
The in-game market tells me that there are drone implants in slots 7 through 10 respectively.
Slot 7: Speed bonus
Slot 8: Optimal Range
Slot 9: Repair bonus
Slot 10: Durability
Based on this list, I can already see that I can occupy slot 9 with another implant, since it is of no use to me.
Slot 6 is currently equipped with an implant for my improving my power grid, so it’s a pretty useful implant.
For slot 9, the most useful use would be for my shield’s recharge rate, though the question here is whether it’s for the passive or active variant.
So for now it’s back to shopping for me.
