Same as AshareeIntrefer but the frigates Scrammed me.
Epic amounts of Veld in pocket 2.
-- EdNodes (2008-12-30 19:12:22)
Exactly 6,447,561 veldspar in pocket 2. Have to drive thru pocket one to get it, but worked fairly well with Hulks and an Orca.

You warp in 23-25 km from the gate in pocket 1.
-- ProteusCronus (2010-07-26 14:41:31)
Pretty good bounties if you kill everything, had to warp out twice using a CNR.
-- AdmiralProud (2010-09-25 09:57:21)
Found it very easy in a standard tanked mega, if inc dmg is a problem keep them outside 20k, almost all ships are close range Optimal
-- ShadowBuns (2011-02-24 15:07:12)
Today's pocket 2 spawn:

2x EW Cruisers (Corelum Guardian Chief Patroller) (Heavy damps)
