Note that NIMs are now averaging about 600K ISK/each -vs- the 4.5M to 5.5M ISK value 30 days ago. Also note the trading volume increase.
This should free up NIMs as being what was reported as a T3 production bottleneck, and will make Melted Nanoribbons the most valuable drop item for Class 2 & 3 sleeper salvage.
However, the (near-term) balance between supply and demand for NIMs is such that although the NIM sell price is lower, the higher volume of NIM drops is still making up for the price drop. For example, my most recent run to market netted roughly the same three top ISK earners, with NIMs still accounting for the majority of sleeper ISK yield:
- Neurovisual Input Matrix (NIM): 157M
- Melted Nanoribbons: 136.4M
- Sleeper Data Library: 76.5M
In W-Space news, between in-laws in town and traveling (good friend's wedding!) my online time has been limited, but spawn rates continue to be adequate between my POS system and the adjoining recurring Class 2 systems. If anything stands out it is boredom - feeling too much like Null-Sec Ratting operations these days. Now that I know exactly what ships and fitting to bring to Sleeper sites, Class 2 sleepers are no longer a "challenge".
That means I need to seek out tougher action, so I may move my Apeiron base to the next decent looking Class 3 spawn.
