Daily Tip:Players pretty much only spend time in low-security space to fight other players, or to travel through it as quickly as possible. If you see someone, your default assumption should be that they are there to kill you.

Refining Asteroid Ore (EVE Mining Guide) - Page 2

Getting Perfect Refine Rates

Perfectly refining ore with no waste or taxes is a hybrid of good skills, good relations with an NPC or player organization, and a good location. There is also the possibility of using implants to make up for a deficiency in skills or refinery quality.

Refining Skills

Refining skills comprise a small subset of the industrial category of skills in EVE Online.

The two most important skills are:

  • Refining: This skill reduces wasted minerals by 2% per level.
  • Refinery Efficiency: Further reduces waste by 4% per level.

There are complemented by a series of skills that improve results when only when refining particular ores:

  • Arkanor Processing
  • Bistot Processing
  • Crokite Processing
  • Dark Ochre Processing
  • Gneiss Processing
  • Hedbergite Processing
  • Hemorphite Processing
  • Jaspet Processing
  • Kernite Processing
  • Plagioclase Processing
  • Pyroxes Processing
  • Omber Processing
  • Spodumain Processing
  • Scordite Processing
  • Veldspar Processing

As well as some skills that improve the payout on certain non-standard materials:

  • Ice Processing: Ice asteroids are critical for manufacturing starbase fuel, though are only found in very specific locations.
  • Mercoxit Processing: Mercoxit is a special ore in that it damages the ships mining it, and also in that it is the sole source of arkanor, a critical mineral used solely in tech II manufacturing.
  • Scrapmetal Processing: Much mineral matter can be derived from non-asteroid items such as ammunition, modules, and ships. This refining skill requires the longest to train, and is perhaps the most generally profitable in terms of pure ISK.

In almost all circumstances it is important to train not only refining and refinery efficiency, but also the applicable processing skill. Note that many of the processing skills are a pain in the butt to train for, especially those applying to the more coveted substances in EVE like high-end asteroid ores and scrap.

Where To Refine

What station you refine at will obviously be determined mostly by your personal circumstances. Still, there are many important factors to be considered. For starters, if you are refining in null-sec space then not all stations are equal; check out the refining rate of a given station there before putting all your eggs in one basket.

There is also the factor of taxes to be considered, since having maximized skills will avail you little if the corporation that owns a station is just going to tax the bejesus out of you. In the case of NPC-owned stations, his can be ameliorated by grinding out standings with the owner of a given station to 6.67 or higher, or else with the faction to which that NPC corporation belongs. In the case of player-controlled stations, the amount of tax demanded can vary quite wildly, though if you have a good relationship with the organization controlling it you can usually explain your situation and get a free pass or discount on their taxes.

Mining is quite possibly the most dangerous profession in EvE.

Eat the right number of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you’ll put on weight. If you eat too little you’ll lose weight. tips on health

"Mercoxit Processing: Mercoxit is a special ore in that it damages the ships mining it, and also in that it is the sole source of arkanor, a critical mineral used solely in tech II manufacturing."

Should read as, "Mercoxit Processing: Mercoxit is a special ore in that it damages the ships mining it, and also in that it is the sole source of morphite, a critical mineral used solely in tech II manufacturing."
