So, due to my desire to be more mobile, I had planned to purchase a nice, lovely Charon.
Now, while I don’t particularly think that the Charon is a very pretty ship, having one in my employ would certainly improve my ability to move large fleets of ships and equipment from one region to another. This, of course, is a great idea. It would certainly be more useful than my fearsome Naglfar class Dreadnaught “Tax Collector” and while a good carrier is always nice, my Nidhoggur class ship, the “Fallout’s Revenge”, has only been able to do one thing in the past six months and that was make a jump from one low-sec system to another low-sec system.
Then.. I looked at the price. 1.1 Billion Isk. My wallet was going to need some help especially since my purchase of “Tax Collector” was still quite recent. Not a problem.
Well.. the prices went up to 1.2 Billion Isk. Not a problem
Then the prices went up to 1.3 billion isk. Err.. yeah, not a problem.
The price shortly went up to 1.4 billion isk as of Friday morning. K, no worries.. I’ll just mission run some more.. Everybody loves my RF EMP L ammo that I sell in great quantities.
Friday Afternoon; 1.6 billion isk. Price for RF EMP L ammo where I was selling.. dropped from 1296 isk per round to 1150 isk per round (at the time, it was lower than Jita) and no one was buying RF EMP L ammo. The 200,000 rounds of my bread and butter still untouched as of Monday morning because someone dropped nearly 700k of that ammo and is collapsing the Dodixie EMP L market.
So, between my mission running, module selling, and purchasing of ammo for resale, I actually LOST ground in my attempt to purchase a Charon. At this rate, it would be quicker to retrain for the Freighter that I want (the sexy Providence) and just wait out for a good deal.
Boy, that Hulk is starting to look real good…
1.4 billion this morning in amarr
Well, that’s good that it’s starting to steady out. Hek and Dodixie were both at around 1.5 to 1.6 billion as of last night.
It’s not the only class of ship to so greatly inflate. Orcas at 800m isk are now double what they were a couple months ago, and quite possibly going to add another 20% on top of that before things settle down.
Meanwhile, the offer still stands to help you move stuff until you _can_ get a freighter …
