WTM Shop - What should I stock?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I'm planning on running a shop that follows WTM around and carries all the stuff that we need a lot of at incursions. Not necessarily modules (sorry, not going to carry large stocks of deadspace modules across space every few days - that's asking for trouble and I don't have the money to stock them ahead of time), but most types of ammo, drones, nanite repair paste, etc. This is all being shipped across super safe routes in an insanely safe ship that's basically impossible to turn a profit on suicide ganking (unless I was to happen to carry around 20b worth of cargo - I'm not planning on ever carrying even a fraction of that, though), so I should be perfectly safe.

I was looking for input on what the stock should be - I don't have the money to go super overboard ahead of time, but I wanted to make sure I had enough of what people would need to buy at incursions. Here's a list of the current stock I was aiming to have at the start of the average incursion (and what I currently have purchased and ready to go):

Projectiles:
400,000 Quake L

90,000 Republic Fleet EMP L

_____

Hybrid:

400,000 Null L

400,000 Void L

50,000 Caldari Navy Antimatter

50,000 Caldari Navy Tungsten

10,000 Javelin L

10,000 Spike L

____

Missiles:

10,000 Mjolnir Fury Cruise Missile

10,000 Mjolnir Javelin Torpedo

10,000 Mjolnir Rage Torpedo\

____

Scripts:

5x missile precision script

5x missile range script

5x tracking speed script

5x optimal range script

____

Nanite Paste:

3,000 nanite repair paste

____
Crystals:

20x Gleam L

20x Imperial Navy Gamma L

20x Imperial Navy Multifrequency L

20x Imperial Navy Ultraviolet L

20x Imperial Navy Xray L

10x Scorch L

10x Conflagration L

20x Gamma L

20x Infrared L

20x Microwave L

20x Multifrequency L

20x Radio L

20x Standard L

20x Ultraviolet L

20x Xray L

____

Heavy Drones:

2x Gecko (those things are way too expensive for me to stock a lot of)

20x Berserker I

20x Ogre I

20x Ogre II

20x Praetor I

20x Wasp I

____

Medium Drones:

20x Hammerhead I

20x Hammerhead II

35x Infiltrator I (I accidentally bought too many)

20x Valkyrie I

20x Vespa I

____

Light Drones:

20x Hobgoblin I

20x Hobgoblin II

20x Warrior I

20x Warrior II

20x Acolyte I

20x Hornet I

____
Sentry Drones:

10x Garde II

____
Logistic Drones:

20x Light Armor Maintenance Drone I

20x Light Armor Maintenance Drone II

20x Light Hull Maintenance Drone I

20x Light Hull Maintenance Drone II

____

Modules:
10x Damage Control II (for when new players don't fit them - these ones are cheap enough to carry)

10x Large Shield Extender II (for when we're fitting for influence)

10x Adaptive Invulnerability Field II (for when we're fitting for influence)

 

 

If anyone has suggestions for commonly used items that I haven't stocked, please let me know!

 

Since I'll have to be making restocking runs regularly, I imagine, I'll also be taking personal orders for anyone who wants me to pick them up stuff so they don't have to run back to trade hubs and can just follow WTM from Incursion to Incursion, as long as they don't consist of what I consider to be unsafe cargo (in other words, nothing that would put me close to where suicide ganking me becomes profitable).

 

I'm planning on keeping markup to a minimum, because I don't really care that much if I profit a ton from this. I've already spent a few billion in investments to set up my alt toon to fly it and buy the stock, I doubt I'm getting those costs back ever. However, I do want it to at least be enough where it's worthwhile to keep moving the cargo around as often as incursions change. 


For members of my corp (which is literally nobody, as of now, because I've never tried to recruit anyone), there is no markup and your items will be the same price as current Jita costs. Personal orders are also free for corp members.

Dunno if you what opinions of your current stock but... 

- T1 drones should be removed for Federation Navy drones instead. Cost/Benefit for them is worth it. 

- Imperial Navy Xray L is not a useful crystal. Only ones you really need is FACTION Multi, Gamma, UV and Gleam L. For pulses, Conflag and Scorch are good too. 

 - Gamma L, Infrared L, Microwave L, Multifrequency L, Radio L, Standard L, Ultraviolet L, Xray L are not approved ammo types. must be FACTION. Crystals in bold still shouldn't be used in incursions regardless of faction or not. 

- Sentry drones are not encouraged for most ships due to the "moving" nature of incursions. having stationary drones causes them to have to be pulled in every 2 minutes/losing dps or never dropping them at all.

I was mostly just looking for what extra things I should pick up. I know some things aren't standard pickups but I figured I could carry them anyways and any other incursion groups / random people could always buy them. They're already purchased so I don't really have any reason to not bring them, especially crystals since those are so little space. Faction Xray L and Sentry Drones were both listed on recommended fittings for certain ships, though, so I figured I could pick them up and see if they sold.

 

I'll definitely pick up more Faction drones at some point, I'll keep those in mind.

I created a website for it here:

Hey there Pax,

Loving the site, and this is a kind thing that you're doing for WTM. Nonetheless, just to be on the safe side, could you put "Not affiliated with Warp To Me Incursions" somewhere on there? That way they don't come running to us for anything related to the service :)

Cheers o7

That's a good point! I'll edit it asap. Don't want to cause any issues.

The homepage for the website is now the disclaimer alone, and to view any of the other information people have to click onto another page.

 

This should hopefully help avoid any confusion.
