You can blitz this by destroying the pleasure hub and then loot the damsel and warp out.

Destroy the pleasure hub prior to Kruul and avoid the spawn.

You don't need to warp in, set a bm, and warp at distance.
Every time you do a mission that gives you the option to warp warp to 0, stop warp, then restart warping at your selected distance.
You can do this with Cosmic Anomolies and other sites found with scanning.
You do this with CAs: Warp To...stop, then you can view on the system map what type it is.

BTW This is not deadspace. You can use a mwd here.

Second wave seems to spawn when you fire on Kruul, so watch your drones. You DON'T need to kill the Kruul for the Mercenary Elite Fighters to spawn.

not exactly a blitz -- aggro Krull then kite them for 50-75km ... then warp out and back in right away. they'll be so far away from the pleasure hub you can zip in and rescue the damsel without killing a thing. i used a frigate. kite them at a distance of 20km or more.

Easily completed in a Vexor. Killed the hub in 5 seconds and grabbed the damsel and out.

Slave pens have a ton of HP. 5x 150mm compressed coil gun's with antimatter ammo, 4x magnetic field stabs's, 3x hobgoblins helping... took over 2k rounds to down them both at optimal range. Only took them down to update this. Not worth the effort again.

The blockade was a lot harder than this

Just fit two thermal active hardeners on your tank and it should be fine (cruiser)

I got 10 Marines not Exotic dancers, Krull must be branching out into different club themes...

Make sure you're hitting the pleasure hub and not the slave pens, the pens have a LOT of hp. Just sat there for a few minutes, picking away before I realized my mistake.

Pretty much all of the incoming damage (for the first wave at least) is thermal, I completed in a shield tank rifter and a thermal active hardener. Turned it off, damage exactly doubled. If you're fitting a tank with hardeners, thermal is all you need to worry about.

The hub itself seems to have no resists at all, based on using 3 different rocket types on it for full damage from each.

I got ten very confused janitors from the Pleasure Hub rather than exotic dancers. Someone has a sense of humor.

Loot from pleasure hub appears to be random. I got 10 tourists instead of the dancers.

Completed by an Alpha Clone with 2mill SP in T1 SOE Epic Arc Thrasher. Confirm that killing the Pleasure Hub before killing Krull stops the 2nd Spawn.
