No loot

Veldspar - 47 asteroids (1,659,846)
Plagioclase - 30 asteroids (813,864)
Pyroxeres - 16 asteroids (479,979)
Make sure you do not turn the mission in until after you are done mining, if you want to mine. (Or just make sure there's always at least one ship in the area after you've turned it in.) Bookmarking the asteroids to warp in close doesn't work, you always warp to the start point unless mining after turning it in.

Bounty : ~1.8M ISK
Loot : ~2.8M ISK estimated

Kill right spawn and all ships of this chain.

I found that using a passive cane with autocannons finishes the mission quite quickly and easily. used AB to get to the first cruisers quickly and rip them all to shreads. and use Ab again to quickly chase the reinforcements. suffered minmal damage, around low 80% shield. finished mission in about 5-7 minutes

In my passive fitted Drake with a invu II i felt it's easy to tank the whole spawn, even if you shoot all at the same time. (Medium skills)

EoM drop lots of loot.

Also, reinforcement spawns did not attack drones for me

I active armor tank a myrmidon, and I easily took this mission on. I do have hull upgrades 5, and mechanic 5, and repair systems five. So all of my hardeners were tech 2, as well as my repper. In all honesty I didn't even need the repper. I just sat back and let my vespa 2's kill them all. They wouldn't aggro my drones at all.

I found dealing Kinetic damage is more effective than Thermal damage. Also I prioritized protection against Kinetic damage with Thermal damage secondary.

The EoM Prophets fire Bloodclaw Light Missiles and will fly within 3,000 meters of your ship. The EoM Black Priests and Crusaders fire Scourge Heavy Missiles.

Here's a bounty list for the pirates encountered.

EoM Death Knight: 110,000
EoM Crusader: 100,000
EoM Black Priest: 75,000
EoM Prophet: 50,000
EoM Demon: 17,500
EoM Succubus: 12,000

Spawns do not target drones for this mission

This mission has been updated or is very random in numbers. There are a lot more ships now, and I counted more Plag asteroids too. I also lost 1 drone, it may have been the original group or an early spawn. I didn't have time to note triggers and wave numbers, but there were 6-9 ships at the start and they came in in small group spawns/triggers pretty rapidly after that. The mission is more difficult, but still easy enough in a reasonably fit Hurricane. It may be trouble for a cruiser. I didn't need to move so the "at X km" is to note where most of the type's wrecks were. Counting the wrecks after finishing there were:
EOM Prophet 6 maybe at 3000km
Succubus 6 at 7500km
Demon 9 at 7500km

Crusader 6 at 15km
black priest 3 at 18km
death knight 3 at 17km

Early ships Crusaders and Prophets spawn in waves but grouped together.
Middle ships Succubus and Black Priests....I think
Ending ships Demons and Death Knights ...I think

Did this mission in an arbitrator, pretty easy although every cruiser killed spawned another and a frigate, except for the last and 3 of the first 6.

I started this mission with the intention of sitting in the middle of them and just tanking it with my myrmidon. After killing about 15 ships ran out of cap and had to retreat. They were much harder than I predicted. Also I noticed that kiting is not too effective. Their missiles deal good damage. Even at 50k while they seem almost uneffected by my railguns with iron ammo. Antimatter at close range is effective but drains my cap in a couple mins. Had to return to station twice to recharge my cap. The numbers of hostiles must be random. I was confronted by 33 ships.

First few times I ran this mission, I carefully killed triggers so that i worked on each individual set of reinforcement waves before killing the next initial prophet.

However, since I run this in my dual-rep drone myrm, I can usually sit there and tank everything while my Vespa II's chew everything up. So I'm going to try "afk'ing" this mission this time around, see what happens to the drones.

It was a piss on my hurricane with 50% tech 2 modules (carefully killing the triggers last). I was even able to switch to my 180mm dual auto cannons and kill them much faster, compared with my artillery.

I'm confirming that the new spawns don't target drones. Had my drones out the whole time and they were never targeted.

Was able to do this in buffer-tanked Phantasm (19k shield, 49/59/69/75), coming out with about half shields. Just wait until they're inside 20k and you never have to move, even to salvage. Didn't even pay attention to triggers.

These rats drop large quantities of loot. I think I got at least one drop from each of the 33 rats. Total was 1050 m3, not counting salvage.

Pretty easy with T1 fitted active shield tank Drake set up on therm and kin, used kin missiles and Hobgoblin IIs.

1187m3 total volume

Metal Scrap: 31
Heavy Beam Laser: 6
Cap Booster 100: 30

CAREFULLY READ THE DESCRIPTION AT THE TOP!! It tells you everything you need to know!!!
- There are THREE sets of the listed spawns, as it says.
- The triggers are not random!

The first time I ran this, I didn't pay attention to triggers and quickly got overwhelmed. Had to warp out multiple times, etc.
The second time I ran this, I just plunked my Harbinger (with relatively low skillpoints and no T2 guns) down in the middle and carefully triggered each set of spawns. Never had to warp out once, very easy and very rewarding.

no more bookmarking in this mission (not the roids, wrecks, buildings,...)!
so getting the stones could take some time. they are all about 30-40km
from warp-in point.
btw. easy shooting and lot of loot. done with t1 fitted long range cyclone
(titan sabbot + scourgies)

T2 tanked drake: 31 scourge(x7) groups expended, no drone use, minimum enemy killed (right hand chain as per blitz instructions), 87% shield remaining on completion due to the four untouched prophets orbiting and throwing rocks.

As several others have also noted, there is no drone aggro. Just make sure you watch what targets your drones attack, because they don't always pick the right ones.
Incoming dps is pretty low as long as you kill enemies in the right order. Even a tech 1 fit battlecruiser should be able to tank this if fit properly. Good practice for a beginner.

Very easy in Drake with AB, kiting zero problem. Needed 2 runs with slavaging Cormorant - lot of loot but no spectacular items.
