Thank you for reading my guide, any constructive feedback is greatly appreciated. My girlfriend (Trouble Maker) and I have been working this method for a little over a month and so far it's working fairly well. I decided to share it for several reasons and I hope that folks find it useful. The goal we had starting out is to level her mining skills to a point where she is using at least the tt mining gear efficiently and also for her to be able to play daily without depositing (yet). First you will need to download Little Big Mining Log. There is a lot of information on LBML all over the forums/internet so I won't go into detail about that. Also a two monitor set up is REALLY important to keep you sane while you skill up. You will use the second monitor to read forums, watch videos and all that fun stuff while you're sweating. Also LBML is a lot less crowded if you have two monitors. We're going to assume that you started out on Arkadia and that you haven't blown through all of your starter ammo yet. Oh you have? In that case you are going to have to sweat until you have at least three peds. 2k worth of sweat should do it if you can find a good buyer. If you haven't then you will want to do all the starter missions, to include the ones that take you to 8 coins, conserve your loot. Once you get to celeste quarry grab all the quests you can and make your way to Relentless Firebase Academy. Do the missions you can there and once again conserve your loot and ammo. At this point you should be able to tt all of your non-mining loot and ammo and pick up mining probes from the tt. Before dropping a single probe head back to Celeste Quarry and start sweating Caraboks. This is where you will be using that second monitor to learn as much as you can about mining. Research what resources are where, what the current market/markup is and all of that fun stuff. Once you have some idea what you are looking for head out on your first mining run using LBML your goal is 3.1 (tt) peds worth of ore. Once you've reached that or run out of probes head back to Celeste Quarry and start sweating those Caraboks again. Once you've got 3.1 ped of ore and 1k of sweat head to the quarry or wherever you like to sell and post your offer. We word it something like this: Package deal! 3.12 ped (tt) of ore +1K sweat for 5 ped! Lysterium Ingot (44), Kaz Ingot (10), Ospra Ingot (10). PM me. with that first 5 ped just buy probes and go mining and sweating again. We were able to buy a tt finder after the second run and a tt digger after the third. In ten runs we had two runs that yielded less than 3.1 ped ore and our average return has been around 3.3 ped (tt). During sweat events go to Celeste outpost and group sweat the Nusuls otherwise sweat the Caraboks at Celeste quarry until you have enough evade to sweat the Gallards at Celeste Outpost. It shouldn't take too long to make this transition. Using this method you should be able to play consistantly and skill up your mining skills and evade skills without depositing. We're focusing on just one resource (ores first) at a time. this seems to make it easier to sell the resources.
