Ask FYAD they will know.

Welcome to the forums.
FYI: goons can be pretty protective of their gaming secrets. A bit more of your gaming history and background may be a good idea. Cross-posting in FYAD doesn't hurt either; those folks don't play as much these days, but they have a lot of experience to draw on.

Good luck in your wonderings.

If you are in the US, I checked Amazon by chance a few minutes ago and they have a special going on: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...8?ie=UTF8&psc=1


Yes, $5.00 for 3 PLEX. No idea if it's a typo mistake by Amazon, or a way for CCP to try to get the price of PLEX in game down.

You have to connect your Amazon account with your CCP account, and the plex are deposited into your account to collect in game. US billing address only.

The Great Saiyaman is Super Groovin! It's a level beyond mere groovin!

A good start might have been spending the you put into this account on PLEX.

This was gone within 20 minutes because Amazon goofed.

It would appear that you don't want to spend money on EVE, but now that you are here, why not buy the "EVE Collector's Box"?

In for $10, in for $150.

You are not one those people who quits EVE after a month, are you?

I want to troll, but I'm also new and know how it feels. The short answer is: There is no short answer.

The medium answer is: Of course there's no short answer. If it was that easy, everyone would do it. If there were 2-3 things anyone could do or quickly distill in a forum post for how to make enough for plex, then everyone would do those things.

If you're willing to grind, I know friends who have made enough money for plex with mining. They didn't mind spending several days mindlessly mining to pay for a game that allowed them to mine more. I have poo poo to do, and can't be bothered to come home after work and work more to not have to pay for working a second job.

Your isk-earning potential seems to be 50/50 real life skills and knowledge and character skills. But you have to "plug-in" that potential into a group of other people so you can achieve more than you could have individually.

From my limited experience, here's my advice:
Try a lot of different things. Read a lot. Figure out what you find fun and rewarding, and hope what you like is in demand. You probably won't be able to make it big entirely on your own without being really bored.

I'm sure a great first step to making money in EVE is learning how to properly post on message boards.
