Warp In

There are 5 Pods when you warp in, one of them is not damaged (Show info on each pod to find the one with the description not including "This escape pod has been damaged..."). Approaching this undamaged pod will pop up a message and spawn a container. Loot the passenger Oura Madusaari; this passenger is needed to unlock the acceleration gate. Oura Madusaari remains in cargo (October 19th 2011).

Approaching the other four "damaged" pods will pop up a message and the pod contains a Stranded Pilot (not needed to complete the mission).

Looting the highest pod vertically will spawn a separate can that contains Oura Madusaari.

Oura Madusaari functions like a gate key and doesn't despawn. Keep one of her in cargo and you can skip the life pods and go straight through the gate.

Pocket 1

You will encounter periodic damage from the anomaly from about 5000m, 5 hits around 200 - 400, Initially there are 4 Debris Silos (a popup message appears after destroying each of them, You will get damage upon destruction of each silo, 800 omnidamage (200 of each type) before resistances), destroy the silo closest to the Anomaly (7 o'clock). Its destruction causes the wreck of the "Paryi" to appear. Approach the wreck and a pop up will appear along with a container from which the mission objective (Dr. Fajah Ateshi) must be looted.
the marked one
The Debris Silos drop T1 ammo.

Using 'Combat' drones in order to kill the silo can kill them even before the silo is destroyed (as of 19 October 2011). 'using sentry drones will take damage but wont break there shields.'

1) You must go to the pod that says "A life pod from a long since destroyed ship" in its Show Info.
2) Get Oura Madusari from the cargo container that spawns.
3) Use gate to next room and destroy the silo, that is located at 7'clock closest to the anomaly. Get the doctor and get out :)


I'm naked and I'm walking the blue-painted halls at military academy, and it's okay because everyone gets hazed like this and I'm in better shape than all of them so I'm not ashamed, except this means they can see the scars twining from my back and down to my knees like snakes, and what starts as laughter turns into confused whispering and sounds of pity as they realize how recently I was a slave, and I want to kill them slowly just like I did the man who gave me the scars, but I just walk on, seeing only red.

He promised we would go to the beach on my birthday, so we went, even though it was raining, even though we didn't know where mom was again. I was collecting shells, and I found one that was perfect and round and smooth but then I looked back to the shore and saw him just standing there, the first time I'd ever seen him cry, and I wanted to say something but couldn't, just stood there, frozen, the shell crunching in my fist, and I looked down and my hand was bleeding but I didn't feel it at all.

They called me to identify the body, and I told them she divorced me last year but they didn't care because she had no friends, no family on the planet at all. I went in and they pulled back the sheet and she was there beautiful like she was asleep, and my full name was carved delicately into her left arm like calligraphy, the blood dried like rust on parchment. Every time I closed my eyes for a full year after I saw that. I still miss her.

"You have failed your family," he tells me with gentleness I know he's incapable of feeling. "You have dishonored us. You know what to do." And I know that the honorable thing is to fall on my sword like a good girl, so I take it out and push it through his chest and show him exactly what I think of his precious honor. I will never have to apologize again.

Part 2 of 3

Faction: None
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: EM
Recommended damage dealing: None needed
Recommended ship classes: Battleship, Command Ship, Battlecruiser, HAC
Note: Fitting a microwarpdrive (or at least an afterburner) is highly recommended.

Warp to the Anomaly, use the (now unlocked) acceleration gate.
When approaching the Anomaly (30km from warp in point) it will spawn an Amarr Cruise missile battery. There is no need to destroy the sentry, as when you approach the anomaly, a message appears and it ceases firing. Place the "Neurowave Pattern Scanner" you received from your agent in the Anomaly to complete the mission.

Silos drop Ammo.

Part 3 of 3

Faction: Rogue drones
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: All kinds ( Standard Rogue Drone: More Exp/Kin less EM/Therm )
Recommended damage dealing: EM
Recommended ship classes: Battleship, Command Ship, Battlecruiser, HAC, Navy Apoc works

Drones will aggro other groups, but not spawn groups.
Attacking any ship in Pocket 1 will aggro the entire pocket; however, spawned reinforcements remain passive unless attacked.
Attacking a passive reinforcement will also aggro all other passive ships.

Pocket 1

As you warp in there are 4 groups of Rogue Drones.

Group 1 ( Auto-Aggro)
2x Battleship (Patriach Alvus/Alvus Creator/Ruler)

Group 2
3x Cruiser (Viral Infector/Devastator/Violator Alvum)
2x Battelcruiser (Crippler/Striker Alvatis)

Group 3
1x Elite Frigate(Strain Render Alvi) (Web/Scram)
3x Frigate (Barracuda/Devilfish/Hunter/Silverfish Alvi)
2x Cruiser (Viral Infector/Devastator Alvum)

Group 4
3x Battleship (Domination/Matriarch/Spearhead Alvus)

Last kill in each group triggers a respawn:

Group 1 Spawn:
2x Frigate (Hunter/Raider Alvi)
2x Battleship (Swarm Preserver Alvus)

Group 2 Spawn:
2x Frigate (Devilfish Alvi)
2x Battleship (Alvus Controller/Spearhead Alvus)

Group 3 Spawn:
3x Frigate (Decimator Alvi)
2x Cruiser (Bomber Alvum)
1x Battlecruiser (Crippler/Defeater Alvatis)

Note regarding the acceleration gate: Initially it is not an actual acceleration gate but a "Large Collidable Object" looking like one; it will also not show on the overview. Only after the destruction of the two BCs from Group 2 will the fake gate be changed into a proper acceleration gate that leads to Pocket 2.

Blitz: Destroy the two BCs (Crippler/Striker Alvatis) in group 2 to "spawn" the acceleration gate. The gate is not locked, but warp scrambling frigates will prevent you from using it.

Pocket 2

Initial Spawn
1x Elite Frigate (Strain Render Alvi) Web & Scram
3x Frigate (Hunter/Sunder Alvi) Trigger Sunder
1x Battlecruiser (Striker Alvatis)

Attacking and killing the scrambling frigate(s) did not cause the additional spawn. Attacking one of the Sunder Alvi did however.
If you can oneshot the frigs the second spawn WILL NOT appear. Make sure you get 2 shots off on them.

2x Frigate (Decimator/Render Alvi)
2-3x Cruiser (Disintegrator/Violator Alvum)
1-2x Battlecruiser (Defeater/Enforcer/Striker Alvatis)
4x Battleship (Swarm Preserver/Domination/Spearhead Alvus/Supreme Alvus Preserver/Alvus Ruler)

These seem to be two separate groups and they can aggro drones.

Blitz: Use an afterburner to make your way to the rogue drone ship and drop Fajah Ateshi into the can which completes the mission, no drones have to be killed.

The Anomaly is 30-50 km away from the warp-in. Dropping Fajah Ateshi inside the "Rogue Drone" ship next to it completes the mission and leads to the destruction of the (Orca-Class) "Anomaly" a few seconds later. Alternatively you may put Fajah Ateshi inside "Anomaly", it will disapear (jump out probably) and mission will be completed with trying to save the crew.

Bounty totaled 8.85m (I got 9+ mil); loot was eliminated effective with Escalation [April 2012]. Salvage was maybe worth 750k [almost not worth doing]. (1.54 mil est price for me)

Circuit Boards Only for salvage ( Jan 2017 )
