This tutorial will teach you how to start a script miner on a shard you have nothing on. It is intended to bring you from day one of a trial account to long term script mining.
Begin your script miner on a shard you have nothing on.
Your starting skills should be Mining and Tinkering at 50 and 50.
You'll want to use a human if you plan on just mining as a trial account and then starting a new trial account when the first one expires. Humans can carry more, and thus they will suit your needs best. You can not receive colored ore or gems on a trial account.
If you want long term viability, you'll want to make an elf. Elves get more gems, and are arguably more profitable as script miners in the long run.
So how do you begin? It's rather simple actually.
Begin by visiting the EUO site and downloading MWinc's miner and Heretics walking mumblerhttp://www.easyuo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=25447#25447
Once you have it downloaded you'll want to follow the instructions provided. You'll set up rails and basically walk between a forge, your mining spots and the bank. In a day or two you'll be a gm miner. By day 3 you should have about 180k iron ingots.
You'll sell the 180k iron ingots in global or in luna. It rarely takes a while and you can afford to sell them cheap. Ideally you should get between 1.5 and 2 mill.
With the gold you receive you need to buy 3 things. a 100% lrc suit, 2/6 jewelry, and a 64 spells mage spell book. With imbuing out, these things are cheap and easy to find on almost every shard.
How do you proceed now?
It's time to get a few skills that will be valuable to you. Train magery, meditation and evaluating intelligence.
How do we do this?
We script of course. http://www.easyuo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=292368#292368
Select magery and script to gm. Really, you only need about 80-90 to do what you want reliably.
Once you have gm magery, you're going back to mining.
You just keep the same script going and bringing in ingots until the day before your trial account status ends.
You need to get a vendor to sell ingots, sell the hundreds of thousands of iron you have for gold, mark runes to your permanent script mining locations, find a spot to place a house and tie up odds and ends.http://www.easyuo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=309701#309701
For your first day out of trial account status, download a permanent script miner, such as the one above. Get a house placed. Follow the instructions of your script and mine forever.
Congrats. You've turned a trial account with nothing into a permanent script miner.
