Default Easy Cubits?

Is there any quicker way to earn cubits besides blowing up ships or mining astroids for water? Regular scan and mine is too slow, and calling in mining ships isn't a good idea unless you can take on a massive ship, and this isn't good for beginners. I don't want to buy cubits, and I'm wondering is there any upcoming events or special ways to get lots of cubits fast? Thanks

We all went though this, its apart of being new. But, get some high lvls to bring you along on a days work! That will get you going. But there is no shortcut unless buying!

Make sure you are upgrading your scanner as well.. Having it upgraded to level 10 can get you approx 50-60k water an hour on asteroids.

squad up and fight high level npc's. it will be more fun than breaking rocks, and it will help you learn to fly your ship better and kill stuff better.

Get your strike upgrade your scanner to level 10 hunt for water rocks in middle sectors such as haitir. It will take a while to get a lot but I figured that if i mine 5 hours a day at the current rate I can get a fenrir in 6 days.

and then another 6 or more days per gun to upgrade to lvl 10.

Pop the drones in the silver/gold roid fields. Let everyone else shoot the rocks -- you'll make 60 cubits a pop from each drone.

I made 5K cubits in about 45 mins or so -- that's like mining 25K water.

Yup but other then the current rock event (drones) going on its the easiest way to get a good amount of cubits while your a low level.

I use to mine Planetoids but unless you have a small fleet in support its not easy for newer members, you can always mine the asteroids its faster and you can do very well.

I do the same systems(as a cylon) I hit Exrun,227,Tenland,Muninn,Vid,and Hatir,then start all over again,I hit it hard one night form 8;30pm to 6am one night with only 2k cubits to my name when I started,I farmed 790k water and bought my Fenrir,as long as you have the focus,it's not hard,just dont do it all the time,can burn you out on the game a bit.
