The lack of copernics is a bit of a joke.
If you google there are a few liars as usual giving out fairy stories of where they can be found but nada, zilch, presenting themselves. Since Orb Vallis appeared it has always been short on the resources. Now I understand the new rail track undertaking is to strip us old hands of a chunk of our accrued stocks. That's fair enough but like good little tenno most of us have been out there slogging away for the needed 6 million credits etc but DE should keep up their end by providing the possibility of finding what we need and I can't find ONE copernic.
It really is bloody annoying when farming on Eiolon is nicely balanced if we plug away but Orb Vallis always seems to be forgotton.
Those 'in the know' mention Temple of Profit; Around the lake outside of Fortuna; Harind Crater; and the official line is the red ore . . . of which you would be very lucky to find a handful across the whole map.
So, c'mon DE, shake a leg and get a decent amount of red ore sprinkled around.
Our new quest is first class but bugger, you really laid it on with a trowel this time to stretch us.
