A few months ago I had my first taste at exploration. By way of being in a wormhole I learned how to work the scanner, and enjoyed it. Which was a surprise at the time because of the fact that the scanning tutorial I did way back when I started playing EvE was not fun at all and mostly frustrating.
But due to skill points and asking help on how it works, I learned to work my probes and enjoyed using them.
Unfortunately I haven't used them in quite some time. In fact, the only ship I've flown in the past couple of months is my industrial character's leopard for moving between Jita and my home system where I do my manufacturing.
That changed earlier today. I bought myself an Astero and called it Curiosity.
The plan is to start going out and learn how to hack containers. Something I tried before in for about 10 seconds before I got my then scanning ship (a cheetah I had for years) blown up because I was paying more attention to the virusses instead of d-scan.
The next few days/weeks will be spent back in the game, doing things I haven't done before.
Chances are I'll get myself blown up, because I'll be popping in and out of wormholes in a semi-shiny ship. But that's what ISK is for, to get it blown up again and again while hopefully making some people explode too.
This is a change since the last couple of months because in those months since I stopped living in a wormhole were spent playing other games, and only updating my manufacturing in EvE.
We'll see if I can keep it up, but I enjoyed being in a wormhole a lot. We'll see what happens once I figure out how to hack without destroying the loot.
Stay tuned o7
