Warp in

7x Frigates (Gallente Navy Officer/Gallente Navy Delta I Support Frigate)

Pocket 1

The trigger ships will spawn the next wave the moment they are attacked, not when they are destroyed. Consider setting your drones to passive to avoid being overwhelmed.

4x Scordite - 25k units
25x Veldspar - 50k units

Spawn 1 (15-40km)

1x Battleship (Federation Covinus/Navis Longa)
4x Cruisers (Federation Praktor Centurion/Legionarius)
4x Frigates (Federation Praktor Harpago/Belos)
1x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Lixa/Lochos) (Web/Scram) (Trigger)

Spawn 2 (15-40km)

2x Battleships (Federation Covinus)
3x Battlecruisers (Federation Pezos)
3x Destroyers (Federation Matara/Machaira)
1x Frigate (Elite Federation Lixa/Lochos) (Web/Scram) (Trigger)

Spawn 3 (15-40km)

3x Battleships (Federation Navis Longa/Covinus)
2x Battlecruisers (Federation Calo/Praeco)
2x Destroyers (Federation Matara)
1x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Lixa) (Web/Scram) (Trigger)

Spawn 4 (15-40km)

2x Battleships (Federation Covinus/Navis Longa/Praktor Navis Praetoria)
2x Elite Cruisers (Elite Federation Calo/Bearcus) (Sensor Dampening)
2x Destroyers (Federation Pelekus/Arcus)
1x Elite Frigate (Elite Federation Lixa) (Web/Scram)

Pocket 2

3 groups, warp-in aggro from one random group, no linked aggro. Moving too close to one group will aggro it.
The following ships are not necessarily divided by type into groups. E.g. on warp-in one group will aggro, but this group can consist of 3x Gallente Navy Megathron. Not all 7x Megathron will aggro on warp-in.
Drones are not attacked by non attacked groups.
Bunkers may drop loot.

Group 1 (7 km)

3x Battleships (Gallente Navy Megathron)

Group 2 (30km)

4x Battleships (Gallente Navy Megathron)

Group 3 (30-35 km)

3x Battleships (Gallente Navy Orion)
3x Elite Frigates (Federation Navy Orion's Wingman)

Mission flagged complete when killing all ships in Group 3.

Killing one of the officers incurs a -2.5% standing hit
Other standing ticks cause 0.06% losses
Destroying bunkers in 3rd pocket will lower your standing for -2.4%

From McEivalley:

Pocket 1
1st wave: Sometimes the trigger is an Elite Federation Lochos or the Harpago (also a frig) - I'm not sure about the Lixa but the Lochos scramms.

4 T2 hardeners (Kin/Therm) on a Raven worked very well with a Large Shield Booster and 3 BCS on low.

Thermal damage against the Orions in Pocket 2 is significantly better than kinetic, the rest of the mission I was fine w/ Kinetic damage. Also my drones did not draw aggro from other groups in Pocket 2.

I just completed this mission but in the first pocket I had 4 spawns not just the three, has this happened to anyone else?

beg to differ with ziggy... navy orion's therm resist on shield/armor is 20/50 and kin resists are 40/80, so therm is clearly better. maybe you got a wacked spawn, but in general stick with therm.

also agree with ChepeNolon, i shot a lochos and got spawn 2 immediately, best to just leave frigs for last, no drones

Ran this mission solo in a Drake, all T1/Named fittings. The only part that gave me trouble was the 'throns with their defender missiles when they got out to their range. Just keep drones on passive and kill everything before the frigs and there's no problem.

Confirming what JoshWilliamson and GrantaviusFowler says. I got 4 spawns as well. But the spawn triggers were the same as mentioned in the guide.

2nd Pocket, atacking structure aggros all enemies
It also would appear that re-warp resets aggro for all enemies

Just as a point of advice, you can pretty much run this mission like a Gallente Navy version of Blockade. Only unlike Blockade, the trigger is always clear - the scrambling frigate.

So kill wave, then trigger, rinse repeat you're done.

Mission + Loot + Salvage = ~30mill
Time to complete and salvage= 2 hours

ISK/Hour = 15mill/h

I love this mission chain just based on the isk they give out

"Blitz info: the megathrons in pocket 2 do not need to be destroyed"

Confirmed, killed the frigs+orions and left the navy megas.

Completed in Aba in about 40 mins (including salvaing by Noctis flown by alt).
In last pocket the Orions don't attack till you attack either of the Orions or the Orion supporting frigs.

Not a easy mission.

For me I shot one guy and both spawns spawned I was active tanking it all perfectly fine then I killed one BS and then I got double scrambled and they ALL hit at least 3x harder as my shields then went to 0% followed by armor and structure.

Raven goes pop, I'm a lil pissed.

Very pissed by the fact I was aligned to go and I killed one scrambler and the last one was at around 35% structure when I went pop.

NOT a easy mission for me imo as they I got double spawns.

Dark > don't attack the frigs, leave your drones on passive and manually command them. If the frigs take any damage they'll spawn next wave.
Comment by ChenParn
2011-06-29 01:14:35
I didn't read this beforehand and popped the frigs as they were scramming me, spawned everything. Warped out back in three times only managing to kill a few Cruisers in Perma Boost Raven. Finally got all frigs but one, he seemed harmless ... wet for a BS frig scrammed me ..pop goes the Raven. Don't attack frigs first...

Easily done in a Legion with c-type medium armor rep with rigs and subs to give it 772.15hp/7.65s, and 1X Kinetic hardener II, 1X Thermic hardener II, and 1X Navy EANM. Along with an afterburner (I used a c-type, but a t2 will work just as well), can tank each spawn/wave perfectly fine. I didn't attempt spawning all waves in pocket 2, but I can say it could tank 2 or 3 of them at once, and it tanked the entire last pocket nicely. 50mil in 1h 5mins after salvaging with Noctis.

Also, for some reason the elite frigates in pocket 2 didn't web/scram me at all. A legion can outrun them if not webbed.

Pretty easy to do with a Apocalypse
Entry room do drones
1. Pocket just MWD and snipe away those destroyers up to BSses from 80km range
2. Pocket just slice them away with Multi group for group

Time 45 min without salvage

This was done easily in a Drake. The trick here was to warp in and STAND STILL. Do not move until it's time to go home. Take each spawn as it comes and not attack the trigger until the rest of the spawn had been removed.

This wiki report helped a lot.

My advice - dont shot at bunkers in 3th pocket. There is a small chance to get some loot but is worth nothing and you will lose additional 2.4% with gallente.

Easy in a sniper Raven. Just MJD away and kill all keeping the trigger last.

Either the loot dropping has changed in the last 3-4 years or Jita prices have dropped, because I only got 35M ISK in Loot+Salvage :(

63 mil in loot/salvage, including 44.5 mil just in tags.
2,690,000 for mission reward and bonus.

I've got level V in Negotiation, Social, Security Connections and Diplomacy, as well as 9.6 standings with the corp, but my loyalty points were only
6,419 for the mission.

Took a .24% hit to Gallente standings for popping a "Federation Navy Officer", as well as a 0.006 "Ship Kill" hit.
(Didn't pop any bunkers or other items, just ships.)
