Last month I talked about how in Phase III I wanted to get Archon production off the ground. Well, a reader of the blog saw what I needed and dropped a load of BPCs for the cap parts I needed in my lap and that allowed me to actually move on my plan.
I move the blueprints I needed into low and and purchased the extra minerals, leveraging a stockpile of trit and pyerite I had already to speed the process. Meanwhile, I was able to coordinate blueprint sharing of the common parts to impact Orca production only minimally. I had an alt trained up for more production slots and shared the work with my main production alt who's still on the Orca line.
Today the long build of the 44 drone bays comes out and the 11 build of the Archon will go in. I don't know if I will wait for it to build and sell before starting another run, depends on ISK reserves for purchasing the next round of minerals as I don't want to impact Orca production. Yet.
The real outstanding question is how much should I put the Archon on the market for and how fast will it sell?
