Mining Barges
Covetor Class
RELATED UNI-WIKI REFERENCES

The mining barge was designed by ORE to facilitate advancing the mining profession to a new level. Each barge was created to excel at a specific function, the Covetor's being mining yield. This additional yield comes at a price, as the Covetor has weaker defenses and a smaller ore bay than the other mining barges.
Mining barges are equipped with electronic subsystems specifically designed to accommodate Strip Mining and Ice Harvesting modules.

SHIP BONUSES

Mining Barge bonuses (per skill level):
3% bonus to Strip Miner yield
3% reduction Ice and Gas Harvester duration
6% bonus to Strip Miner and Ice Harvester range
Role Bonus:
30% reduction in Ice and Gas Harvester duration
25% reduction in Strip Miner duration and activation cost.

Summary

Of the mining barges, the Covetor has the greatest yield whilst having the smallest ore hold and the least tank, making it unsuitable/impractical for solo mining but shine in boosted/protected fleet mining.

Skills

Further information about additional or recommended skills to pilot Covetor for a specific or its common role(s) can be written here.

Tactics

  • Suicide ganking is a popular play-style and miners are prime targets; cf. Why Was I Ganked?.
    • Covetors are a ganker's target of choice due to its inadequate tank and advertises, "I have no tank, only yield"
    • Fit enough tank (and train tanking skills) to survive the ganker's DPS long enough for CONCORD to destroy the ganker; as of Rubicon 1.2, this means surviving a Catalyst's 728.2 DPS for 20 seconds--14,564 Void damage--in a 0.6 system
      • No Covetor fit can tank long enough in 0.5, even with all level V skills
      • A solo tanked Covetor has less than 1% more yield than a tanked Retriever, which is further reduced by more frequent (four times) trips to unload
    • Use and keep launched ECM drones
      • This lets gankers know that you are expecting them and implies you are tanked for them; this is deterrence
      • This provides a chance to break the ganker's target lock for 20 seconds
      • Setting drones to aggressive lets them engage your aggressor without having to target-lock first (see Using Drones)
    • Fitting expensive meta modules may compel a duo gank due to their high-value loot chance
    • Trade hubs (especially Hek) and ice belt systems are popular hunting grounds for gankers
  • Mine aligned to a celestial/station for faster warp-out
    • Warping out when a non-mining ship enters your belt/anomaly is prudent
    • Other mining ships may be scouts for gankers; it is good to know who your neighbors are and put known gankers on your contact list with terrible standing
  • If attacked, overload your tank modules
  • Mining in a fleet--even with just two miners--provides boosts with the skills Leadership and Mining Foreman
  • It is impolite (and diminishes yield) to mine a rock someone else is already mining: when the rock runs out of ore, the first laser to cycle will get the last ore but the other lasers will continue to cycle (up to 3 minutes) and get nothing
