Faction:Minmatar & Mercenary
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: Heavy Explosive / kinetic and thermal
Web/Scramble: None (needs Verification)
Recommended damage dealing: Explosive for the Republic Fleet ships /(Kinetic for the Mercenary)
Recommended ship classes: Battleship, Command Ship, HAC

Initial warp in to within 30 km of an Acceleration Gate, no NPC's; use gate to enter Pocket 1.

Pocket 1

Initially there are
5x Container ('Amarr Battleship Wreckage') - Each contains one 'Metal Scraps' and tractor beams do not work on them

Group 1 (Aggro)

4x Frigates (Republic Takan / Republic Baldur)
3x Battleships (Republic Tribal Ymir)


Triggered by destruction of the last ship of Group 1

4x Battlecruisers (Republic Venis)
4x Battleships (Republic Tribal Ymir / Republic Tribal Sigur)

Destruction of Spawn triggers the appearance of a 6th Container, this one called also 'Amarr Battleship Wreckage', but with a different type 'Amarrian Battleship Wreck'. Either use the type or just ignore the other containers to find that 6th container which holds the gate key (an 'Acceleration Gate Authentication Matrix') needed to get to Pocket 2.

Pocket 2

Group 1

3x Frigates (Republic Takan / Republic Baldur)
3x Battleships (Republic Tribal Jarl)

Spawn 1

Triggered by destruction of last battleship in Group 1, appearing at close range

3x Battlecruisers (Republic Tribal Venis)
3x Battleships (Republic Tribal Jarl / Republic Tribal Jotun)

Spawn 2

Triggered by destruction of last battleship in Spawn 1, appearing at 30k

4x Battlecruisers (Republic Tribal Norn / Republic Tribal Nutia)
3x Battleships (Republic Tribal Jotun / Republic Tribal Sigur)

Spawn 3

Triggered by shooting any of the battleships of Spawn 2
In contrast to other spawns agresses drones

1x Battleship ' The Mercenary' (Mordus Mammoth)

Killing the Mercenaries completes the mission.


Pocket 1 can not be blitzed as the container with the key is triggered by the last ship's destruction.
Pocket 2 can hardly be blitzed as you have to remove two spawns to be able to trigger the mission objective.

See my comments for further info (below).

Tags to be looted

7x Republic Fleet Captain I
26x Republic Fleet Commander II
15x Republic Fleet High Captain I
6x Republic Fleet Midshipman II

07:52:59 Combat Your group of Caldari Navy Wrath Cruise Missile hits The Mercenary, doing 1354.5 damage. (group of 3 missiles)
Completed in Raven, had to warp out due to spawn 2 of room 1 which appeared by surprise, right next to me. As I had no prior knowledge about this mission it took longer than it should have, but I was still ok in a normal Raven (rigged for Dps not cap). I used 2x Invuln and 1x Thermal Amp and maintained my range from the BS's, I was fine. No bounties so loot everything for tags.
My total payout was 5.95mil Isk.
