Eve ISK on Salvaging

Last time, we discussed the advantages and disadvantages of Research and Production so that you can distinguish the activity for farming Eve ISK. Now let us move forward to the next!


This is from a good guide post in Reddit. Credits to the original poster:

This is fitting a salvager to a ship or training into salvage drones and then harvesting wrecks of ships.


  • Low SP requirement. You most likely do not need to train salvaging higher than IV. This means your required salvaging skills are Survey III and Salvaging I – IV.
  • No need for specialized ships. Although the Noctis is a ship designed specifically for salvaging you can throw a salvager onto most ships. Many people use destroyers because of the number of high slots.
  • Pairs well with Exploration. If you aren’t working with a missioner or ratter to clean up their wrecks behind them you will be roaming around a lot looking for wrecks. Exploration can up the isk/hr of your roaming.


  • You need to know where wrecks are. If you do not know where a battle is going to be or have someone creating a large number of NPC wrecks the isk per hour of salvaging is likely to be low.

Eve Online ISK is now easier to get now that you know the advantages and disadvantages of Salvaging. Salvaging is one of the basic activities but still, not all people do salvage in Eve Online. For the disadvantages though, making friends and asking the good spots of wrecks is a good idea to eliminate this disadvantage.

So, will you be considering this as one of your ISK earning activities? Let us know in the comments section. Let us extend the discussion here. Who knows, you might have an idea that is a great help for someone!
