Single Pocket

Auto aggro from Initial Group at warp-in after several seconds.

EACH ship from the Initial Group is a spawn trigger.
For each ship killed, one Reinforcement Group will be spawned. These spawns may target drones/fleet members.

Important Notes:**__
  • Note the ship type pattern for the four reinforcement group's - frigates / destroyers / cruisers / battlecruisers.
  • The ship numbers in a group will randomly vary between 2-3 for each type.
  • The mission completion trigger from the initial group is always the closest ship after you had warped in. (This applies as long as you did not do the the warp cancel trick.)
  • Failing to identify the trigger from the initial group, you can always keep an eye out for the Battlecruiser Reinforcement Group spawn.

Initial Group (Auto-aggro): (20-28km)

4x Cruisers/Battlecruisers (Bomber Alvum)/(Defeater Alvatis)
Trigger (each ship)

Frigate Reinforcement Group (Auto-aggro): (23-27km)

2-3x Elite Frigates (Strain Infester/Strain Splinter Alvi)
2-3x Battleships (Supreme Alvus Parasite/Alvus Ruler)

Destroyer Reinforcement Group (Auto-aggro): (23-27km)

2-3x Destroyers (Predator Alvior/Marauder)
2-3x Battleships (Supreme Alvus Parasite/Alvus Ruler)

Cruiser Reinforcement Group (Auto-aggro): (23-27km)

2-3x Cruiser (Bomber Alvum)
2-3x Battleships (Supreme Alvus Parasite/Alvus Ruler)

Battlecruiser Reinforcement Group (Auto-aggro): (23-27km)

2-3x Battlecruisers (Siege/Defeater Alvatis)
2-3x Battleships (Supreme Alvus Parasite/Alvus Ruler)

  • To manage aggro, do not kill the trigger ships all at once. Eliminate an incoming reinforcement group first, before you trigger the next group (Drones also seem to prefer the trigger ships from the initial spawn).
  • You may warp-in at any distance : Inititate the first time warp, cancel it and then warp in at your preferred distance.
  • The Supreme Alvus Parasite/Alvus Ruler battleships can be sniped or outrunned. Their max attack distance is approx 50-55km, and they move very slowly.
  • Mission is flagged completed once all ships from the Battlecruiser Reinforcement Group have been eliminated.

  • Identify and kill the trigger ship from the initial group.
  • Kill the battlecruiser reinforcement group that it spawned. Warp out.
