A Guide to Exploration Sites

There are 6 types of exploration sites in EVE all of which move around the solar systems they are designated to, these 6 types are:

See below for more details on different exploration sites.

Unknown Sites

Site Type Combat Site
Skills needed Some gunnery skills and a modicum of PVE experience
Equipment needed Ship fitted to tank as long as possible the damage type the NPC rats do, along with guns/missiles to kill.
NPC Rats They will always be present..
Site Purpose PVE pew pew
Other

Up to and including 0.5 (1.0 to 0.5) you will usually just find frigates with the occasional cruiser, sometimes you may find battleships.  In low sec it's usually frigs, cruisers and battleships and the lower you go the bigger/badder and nastier they get.

Down to 0.5 you should be able to solo Unknown sites as I managed quite comfortably in a Hawk.  If your worried take a couple of friends.

Make sure you have plenty of cargo space to loot and get someone to fit a salvager to get the loot.

Unknown sites have a chance of escalating, what this means is that once you have completed the site you are on another site somewhere else will spawn.  To see if a site escalates check your journal - expeditions tab.  Then follow to the site and complete, an escalation site will not stay there forever so be sure to get right on it.

Try to complete escalated sites without leaving otherwise it may despawn.

An escalated site may spawn another one and another etc etc.

Gravimetric Sites

Site Type Mining Site
Skills needed Mining
Equipment needed Mining ship fitted with mining beams, which can vary in ship type, as some grav sites have restricted gate access and will only let in certain types of ship.
NPC Rats They will always be present in the initial encounter, killing all the NPC rats may cause the site to despawn so try and keep one alive.
Site Purpose Your own private mining field (until someone else scans the site down).
Other Most grav sites usually contain small amounts of roids usually found in low sec systems and can be lucrative. The asteroids will not respawn once popped (or if you don't pop them) once you mine what's there it's gone.
