Recon (3 of 3), Level 4

Extras: Toxic gas cloud damage
Recommended damage dealing: N/A

Pocket 1


There are no NPC ships to kill. The next warp gate is 60km away from the warp-in point. The gate is configured to reject Capsules and Capitals.

Unconfirmed: Toxic cloud will be disabled upon losing your ship and will not re-enable.
(Confirmed by Dai Verdigris 14Aug2012. Lost a frigate, returned with battleship. No clouds))
(Confirmed by IcareAboutOre 09Dec2013 : Lost a rookie frig, came back in a MWD fitted frig. No cloud, no damage.)
(Falsified by IcareAboutOre 13Dec2013 : Trick did not work. Either they fixed it, or it only works *sometimes*)
(Confirmed by Lelira Cirim 30Dec2013 : Lost a shuttle, came back in a shuttle. No cloud, no damage.)
(Semi-Confirmed by Restrikt 08Feb2014. Lost Frigate, came back in Tengu. Cloud was there and received only one tick of damage)
(How it works: The waves take 4:00, if you warp back shortly after the final wave, they don't reset and you can fly to the gate unmolested. If you come back too fast they are still going and you can die. If you wait too long they start a new set of waves, or if someone else warps in that would restart it too. The way to do this safely is to start a 4 minute timer as you start to warp, then warp out as soon as you land (about half the time a shuttle can make it out), redock get a new shuttle if needed, be moving the same speed and direction you were last time you warped when the 4 minutes is up, warp in, fly to gate.)


The toxic environment will damage your ship in consecutive toxic cloud waves. Each wave deals EM, Therm, Kin, and Exp damage. First wave is 500*4=2000 raw damage with no shield/armor resists applied. Each successive wave has increased damage.

Wave 1 (~2000dmg) 0:15
Wave 2 (~2200dmg) 0:20
Wave 3 (~2400dmg) 0:40
Wave 4 (~2600dmg) 1:00
Wave 5 (~2800dmg) 1:20
Wave 6 (~3000dmg) 1:50
Wave 7 (~3200dmg) 2:10
Wave 8 (~3400dmg) 2:30
Wave 9 (~3600dmg) 2:50
Wave 10 (~3800dmg) 3:10
Wave 11 (~8000dmg) 4:00

A final giant toxic cloud wave 11 hits after 4:00. It deals 2000 per type = 8000 raw damage with no shield/armor resists applied.
After this final giant toxic cloud there will no more damage coming from the toxic environment.
