The groups will spawn in intervals after you arrive, but it's just a few seconds between each spawn.
The spawns may vary, this is just an example.
Sometimes you may get agro when you warp in, sometimes you don't.
Drones are not attacked by non attacked groups.

Group 1 (23 - 30km)

1x Destroyer (Pithior Supremacist/Terrorist)
3x Battleships (Pith Extinguisher/Destroyer/Exterminator)

Group 2 (30km)

3x Battlecruisers (Pithatis Assaulter/Enforcer)
4x Battleships (Pith Eradicator/Obliterater/Exterminator/Extinguisher)

Group 3 (57 - 80km)

2x Destroyers (Pithior Supremacist/Terrorist)
3x Battlecruisers (Guristas Spy)
1x Battleship (Pith Massacrer/Conquistador)

2,520,000.00 ISK (07-01-2017)

6,816,375.00 ISK (07-01-2017)

(Read comments) *Mission is completed after killing the group with the Spies; attacking them will sometimes draw aggro, but not always.

*This is an easy mission to do afk in a drone boat if you want bounties instead of blitzing it.

Easiest to blitz with long range BS. Just microjump past the groups and fire at the group with the spies, leave when done.

From Kelsor Starfire:

Doing Gurista Spies Level 4 and the blitz method no longer seems to work. It now aggro's the whole room attacking the spies group straight away. It got very rough, very quickly in my Golem Tech 2 fit. Next time I shall deal with them a group at a time.

I just did this twice in a row, from the same agent, in the same system.

The first run, I warped in, killed the group with the spy's without aggroing anything else and it worked.
The second run, I wapred in and got agro from the group with the spy's and one of the other groups immediately without doing anything.

So both spawns and aggro is random in this mission. Will add that right now so that everyone knows beforehand.

I did it in my nighthawk.
Killed spy group, took all agro, no problem holding tank ( Never passed 60% shield on active tank) Plenty of cap left without cap inj. Returned to agent and delivered mission without killing rest. It still works

When you warp in, wait till everything has spawned, then attack the first group, then the spies, then the last group. I never drew full aggro that way.

completed easily in a raven, structures dropped no loot, but i didn't destroy the asteroid colony because it has too much EHP

Mission bounties total nearly 7m, guristas loot is guristas loot so don't expect any miracles

Completed in a classic passive fitted Drake with 150DPS tank. never dropped below 70% Used drones to take out the spies and never caught aggro from the third group.

Sentry/Rail Domi. (1x DLA, 1x Omni Link, 2x Magstab)
Wait for EVERYTHING to spawn and settle.
Aggro spies using your guns.
Deploy Wardens. Shoot the crap out of them all. Warp away to the nearest station. Turn in the mission.
Worked like a charm.

Should you get accidental aggro, stay on spies, they die pretty fast, long before anything bad happens to your 5-slot tank.

For Blitz it seems like you have to kill the complete third group.
(not sure on the destroyers)

easy mission, bounties 6.75m in total - but watch out sometimes you get room aggro on warp in or shooting the spies (I would say 1/10 times)

Confirming blitz still works. May have to kill BS that spawns with spies.
Ran in a tengu. Never had to turn boosters on.

**June 2014**

About 3mill in loot. Barely worth the salvage.

Easy in a Raven - following the suggested order or group 1, spies, final group, which minimized damage to my ship. My drones got no agro, so were unscratched.

2.07m isk in salvage and loot and 5.65 isk in bounties - not bad for such an easy mission.

Took 4m 17 seconds in my Faction Rattler. Didn't even use the shield booster.
