So you’re interested in the “business” side of New Eden? Great, in this 10 career mission arc, you’ll get to try hauling stuff over a few systems, experience the joys of salvaging, mining, a little hacking (i.e. exploration) and manufacturing. This kind of has a little bit of everything as part of it.

There is a little bit of having to kill rats in the course of these 10 missions, you never really get away from that.

What are some rewards that you can look forward to? You’ll get a Venture, which is a basic mining barge. You’ll get a citizen salvager (not good for actual, non mission salvaging), skill books and more.

Business Career Mission Overview

Each career agent hands out 10 missions in their particular arc. This is an overview of the missions and what you get.

Potential isk for the Business Career Mission Arc: 2.3 million isk

Note: when you earn isk, the starter corp you’re in will take a portion for taxes. So if You don’t receive the exact amount that the reward states, this is why.

Business Career Mission 1 – Balancing the Books

Take datasheets from your item hanger, put them in your ship cargo hold and take them to another system.

  • Isk earned: 507,000

  • Reward: 241,000 isk
  • Bonus Reward: 241,000 isk

Business Career Mission 2 – Balancing the Books

This mission has “special ship restrictions.” If you put the civilian salvager on your frigate that you got during the tutorial, you’ll be fine. You will need to remove 1 gun to put the salvager on.

  • Isk earned: 253,000

Civilian mining lasers
You do get a civilian mining laser at the start of the mission, however, the Venture can fit 2. To get a second for free, leave your current ship and board the free corvette. Open your fitting window and unfit the mining laser. Leave the corvette and destroy it. Then you can fit both mining lasers onto the venture.

Protection from Rats
The rats on the mission belt are in rookie ships so they don’t do much damage. You can easily use a drone (which is common for mining barges) to kill the rat instead of fitting a gun.

Needing 333 Tritanium
Tritanium is the mineral that one receives when they reprocess the ore Veldspar. You can either buy this on the market and not go out, or you can go and mine the Veldspar then reprocess at the station.

  1. Dock up
  2. Transfer the Veldspar from your ore hold to your item hanger
  3. Right click on the Veldspar
  4. Click reprocess
  5. Move the Tritanium to your ship’s cargo hold to finish the mission
