Faction: Guristas
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace with acceleration gates
Damage dealt: Kinetic/Thermal
Extras: Neut, Web, Scramble, Jamming
Web/scramble: Elite Frigates
Recommended damage dealing: Kinetic
Recommended ships: Passive shield tanked ships(eg: Drake, Nighthawk, Ishtar, etc); Active Tank + Logistics (eg: Marauder + Dominix / Rattlesnake)

No scramblers or webifiers in Pocket 1, but there are 6 in Pocket 2. Neut towers in both Pockets, so I recommend you go with passive tank.
First one to enter both Pockets will draw full aggro automaticly. Smaller respawns in both pockets, addition: no respawns at all, if all (not necessarily the neut) towers are destroyed first, same as Serpentis version probably.
Remember that this is just an example of what can spawn, you may get different spawns in your mission.

Pocket 1:

Full Room aggro upon warp-in.

Single Group

2x Guristas Energy Neutralizer Sentry III
4x Guristas Cruise Missile Batteries
1x Tower Sentry Guristas III
2x Elite Cruisers (Dire Pithum Mortifier) (Jam)
2x Battlecruisers (Pithatis Enforcer)
11x Battleships (Pith Massacer, Pith Exterminator, Pith Usurper)

Pocket 2:

Single Group

5x Guristas Energy Neutralizer Sentry II
7x Guristas Cruise Missile Batteries
7x Guristas Heavy Missile Batteries
6x Elite Frigates (Dire Pithi Despoiler, Dire Pithi Demolisher) (Web/Scramble)
3x Elite Cruisers (Dire Pithum Nullifier) (Jam)
3x Battlecruisers (Pithatis Death Dealer)
10x Battleships (Pith Usurper, Pith Exterminator, Pith Massacrer)

- The BS's may trigger another spawn of 4 frigates and/or 3 destroyers
- Mission is completed once the recruitment station is destroyed

There is a Stasis tower in the first pocket.

The spawns in the first room were 20-60 km away from the warp-in for me, I counted 3 BC and 10 BS (8 Usurper and 2 Eliminator (Jammer) BS), no frigs in the first pocket. After killing the 2 Jammer-BS some Jammer-Frigs and Destroyers spawned. Can confirm the Stasis tower in the first pocket.

Second pocket deals more DPS, but is still possible to solo in a well skilled full passive Drake (ofc the damage output is not really good, so it takes longer than with a good team). I had a respawn of 4 Pith Destroyer in the second pocket. The mission is not triggered yet, I guess it would be completed after killing the Gurista Recruitment Station but I want to do more research.

With my second attempt I got 12 BS in the first pocket, 9 Usurper and 3 Eliminator. Total Bounty for this mission was around 23 mil. , loot were many 425 mm Rails which sell also for ~ 1 mil. each. Nice mission to start L5 IMO.

The Neutralizer Towers in the second pocket are only Neutralizer II not III, so if you solo this its possible to kill them in a reasonable time to come back with an active ship with more DPS.

Nicely soloable in a passive Ishtar, using two sentry damage rigs and even one midslot for an Omnidirectional Tracking Link, and two Kinetic Amplifiers.

In the first room I had a respawn of 3 frigates which scrammed and 3 Elite Cruisers.

Also in the second room the Exterminators did a bit of jamming.

Did this the first time: Pocket 1 was very easy: no respawns.

In Pocket 2: freq. respawns, very heavy dps (up to 2500 i presume). The neut towers were IIs, they can be killed very fast. Used active tank setup: Marauder + Rattlesnake, the latter fitted with 4 shield transfers + 2 large energy transfers. Worked fine.

Very nice loot: Many CM Launchers and 425mm Rail Guns

pocket 1 spawned 2 x dire pithum nullifiers and 2 x pithi invaders (scram) after killing all the BS, station dropped 1 crappy named mod, take a LOT of missiles if you're using a tengu. Took about an hour solo but i didn't salvage and only looted a bit.
