Surviving Wormholes

Posted by Jon Wood on Apr 23, 2009  | Comments

Surviving Wormholes -'s EVE Online Correspondent Andrew Wallace writes this look at how to survive the new wormholes that have cropped up since the game's most recent Apocrypha expansion.

Wormholes are the latest addition to the EVE Online landscape. These random, swirling tears in space can lead players to other systems in the New Eden cluster, including the new unknown systems that aren't visible on the star map. Since they first appeared- with the release of Apocrypha at the start of March - players from all across the universe have been seeking them out; looking to harvest the riches, or plunder them from each other. To say that wormhole exploration is a dangerous business would be an understatement, so here are a few tips:

First, before you even think about looking for a wormhole, you're going to need some probes and a probe launcher. Thanks to the recently revamped probing system this is much easier than it used to be, as any ship with a spare high slot can easily fit a core probe launcher. Specialised probing ships still have their niche, though; the astrometric frigates have a bonus to the strength of their probes, which makes it easier to find signatures. Probes are essential for wormhole exploration, and it is worth having one fitted to most of the ships in your exploration fleet.
