An All-In-One Guide to Ninja Salvaging

Posted in Ninja Salvaging, The More You Know, Video on October 12, 2011 by captain

So a lot of the time I spend online, I see newer players coming into the SN public chat looking for advice on how to start up with doing ninja salvage.

MLYT has hosted many guides, on how to scan, find a system, and more. These guides are great, but they get outdated, and they’re all separate.

I set out with this in mind to produce a sort of all inclusive guide to ninja salvaging, showing beginners to the trade exactly what they’ll need to get themselves started, as well as demonstrate how easy and quickly you can get into it.

 

In the video embedded below, I discuss what ship to scan and loot with, how to fit them, how to scan, and how to go about ninja salvaging someone’s wrecks. The main purpose for this guide is to be a complete tool to link to people who ask questions, so I can give them good visual advice, rather than have to repeat the same few hours over for each person one on one.

 

Feedback is always good, but if you comment to say something like “X fit is better cause I do this with it”, then the door is over there ->

This video is intended to give the newest of players the absolute cheapest and easiest way to get started in the trade, and as such makes use of very cheap modules and ships. Yes, you will upgrade, but this is meant as a starting point.

Limbizquit Loses Faction-Fit Vargur, 500M Ransom to Paul Clavet

(HD up to 1080p available!)

Killmail.

I’m pretty proud of this gank and the associated video. If you’re a ninja who hasn’t trained your scanning skills up, take a look and you’ll see why they’re crucial.

Paul Clavet’s First Three Hulk Ganks

Posted in Combat, Video on January 26, 2011 by paul

I don’t know why I never got around to doing this before. It’s a blast and a great way to burn excess security status!

I’m sure you’ve noticed the Suddenly Ninjas logo in the video. The rumors are true! I’ll make a post about it tomorrow.

How To Choose A System For Ninja Salvage

Posted in The More You Know, Uncategorized, Video on December 18, 2010 by khalia

This question has been asked frequently, so I made this tutorial.

Wolfjack13 has a terrible name, and even poorer decision-making skills

Kiritsubo told me to update my blog, so I did. Don’t ever say that I never did anything for my readers.

Nitnargimmi’s Faction Golem Meets JerkTengu

Posted in Combat, Ninja Salvaging, Video on August 4, 2010 by paul

Ruvas doesn’t have many bears, but the ones that do live there are fat and stupid. Nitnargimmi shoots, I score. I had a chance to make this a Golem+CNR kill, but I got spooked by some logistical issues and underplayed my hand. Still, if you can’t be happy about a 1.4 Billion ISK kill, what can you be happy about?

Be sure you up the quality to 720p and fullscreen that sucker!

I’m pretty happy with this video. The new computer has made recording these things much more reasonable, and I think I’m getting the knack for the video editing and encoding software, so the quality should be excellent. The songs are “Long Road to Ruin” by Foo Fighters and “Supermassive Black Hole” by Muse. I hope you enjoyed everything.

I know I keep bouncing around on video hosting services. Vimeo was awesome but I noticed yesterday that their rules do not allow video game footage. The downside of YouTube is that you’re limited to 15 minutes (used to be 10 minutes) and they sometimes screw with your music selection for people viewing outside the US. If you know of a better service that offers 720p video playback, let me know.

Three Kills, One Night: Hilaway, Tamiden, Firemaster

Posted in Combat, Delicious Tears, Duffers, Ninja Salvaging, Video on April 1, 2010 by paul

From the evening of 3/30/2010. Note the superb video quality in fullscreen. Also note that YouTube imposes a 10-minute limit on videos, so screw them.

Thanks to Khalia for help on the first two kills and for letting me be in on the very exciting Dramiel fight at the end.

Orca Offline Modules Bug

Posted in Come On!, Video on March 27, 2010 by paul

This bug is merely annoying for industrial users of Orcas, but it can be catastrophic for those who use Orcas as mobile bases out of which to stage combat ships. It happens to me about one in ten ship changes. CCP, two suggestions:

1. Fix the bug.
2. Add an “Online All” button to the fitting screen.

Stoned and flying a Raven: Meet obgyn kANOBI

Posted in Uncategorized, Video on February 1, 2010 by khalia

EDIT: For your pleasure, video action of this kill. You can blame Charismatic for not locking on the Raven until the very end. 😛

It’s 0800 UTC, which means Dodixie’s population is down to 200, and finding any good mission runners is difficult. Captain Charismatic hits a home run and finds us a Raven pilot in a Worlds Collide mission. What a…. ‘nice’ name, obgyn kANOBI.

obgyn shoots wrecks, so we proceed to sit on top of his NPCs and grab loot as he kills them. When he eventually warps out, we warp out too, right back onto the entry gate. Sure enough he arrives moments later. Our plan works! He locks me and fires.

So here’s where things get hilarious. I tell Charismatic to keep obgyn kANOBI occupied while I get the Gank Abbadon. As it turns out, I warp to the wrong station in Dodixie. TWICE. Charismatic wins my personal “Diversion Tactics Hero” award for keeping obgyn occupied by chatting with him, for the 12 minutes it takes me to get the Abbadon, warp back, and burn to the next gate.

[ 2010.02.01 07:41:56 ] Captain Charismatic > 🙂

Having previously scanned his Raven, I know he’s LOL-fit with Heavy Missiles and a pure passive tank. But even I am shocked how fast he dies after I get a point put the heavy lasers on him. Killmail is here.

Here’s him just before KABOOM; notice how much damage I’ve (not) taken!
