**Tips**: I recommend an adaptive and a thermal hardener, I took //much// less damage than with an adaptive/explosive. Never dropped below 75% shields. (with the explo I got down to 25%)

Revision [16198]

Edited on 2012-08-06 13:29:16 by BumRusher [Noted purchased Arisite won't complete mission.]
Additions:
- Note: You must mine the Green Arisite yourself. Buying it from someone will not be adequate to complete the mission.


Revision [10906]

Edited on 2012-07-14 07:57:06 by DesmontMcCallock [Noted purchased Arisite won't complete mission.]
Additions:
==Summary==
==Blitz==
Mine the Green Arisite and leave. Be careful when approaching the Green Arisite roid not to close since they'll aggro.
==Tips==
==Blitz==
Ignore pocket 1, head straight for the lab in pocket 2. You may prefer to kill the Stasis Towers first.
==Blitz==
Kill the Battleship and get the Elite Drone AI from the can it drops and take to your agent. Watch out for drone aggro.
==Blitz==
Go in passive tanked, ignore all sentries and neut towers. While waiting for the BS, kill off the first spawn. Wait for the BS to come out of the range of the stasis towers (you won't have cap to tractor the loot can), then go for it, pick up the can, finito.
==Alternative Blitz==
Go in passive tanked, but kill the Stasis Towers early. There's plenty of time to take care of the triggered Strain spawn before the BS drone with the mission loot spawns, and this way you can attack it earlier (while still closer to the structures).
==Tip==
==Blitz==
Go straight for the BS, ignore everything else. DPS is a bit heavier than in Part 5.

Revision [7296]

Edited on 2011-01-10 17:00:23 by KhanaLoaris [minor cleanup]
Additions:
Recommended ship types: Battlecruiser, HAC, Battleship
- The 5th and 6th waves of ships may not spawn (all missions are slightly randomised).
Recommended ships: Passive tanked Battlecruiser or HAC
All will spawn almost immediately after you warp in. The Raiders/Sunders orbit at 2-4km. There are only few drone cruisers, so it is not a heavy pocket. Destroy the 2 bunkers to stop more respawning.
Recommended ship types: Battlecruiser, HAC
1x Drone Battleship (Supreme Alvus Parasite "Delainen-ROM Symbiote"), which drops mission loot.
Recommended ship types: passive tanked Battlecruiser or HAC
(group about 55-60km, neut range is extreme, stasis towers lock range is only about 28km)
3x Drone Energy Neutralizer Sentry I **Energy Neutralizer**
(After about 30 seconds)
(When the BS reaches about 50% structure)
- Stay out of the range of the stasis towers.
- It is best to go for passive tanking and take the towers one by one (starting with the energy neutralizers). Destroy each spawn before continuing to the next tower.
- If you are active tanked, then: primary the energy neutralizers, kill each spawn as it arrives and before proceeding to the next tower. Primary Strain drones (scramblers), and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage.

Recommended ship types: Battlecruiser, HAC
Pathfinder gate to next pocket.
====Second Pocket====
Deletions:
Recommended ships: Drake, Myrmidon
- I do not always get the 5th and 6th waves of ships. So far, I dunno why. Also, once when fighting the 6th wave of ships, they just up and left in mid-battle.
Recommended ships: Passive tanked ship
All will spawn almost immediately after you warp in. The Raiders/Sunders orbit at 2-4km. There are only few drone cruisers, so it is not heavy pocket. Shoot the 2 bunkers to stop more respawning
Recommended: Drake
1x Supreme Alvus Parasite ("Delainen-ROM Symbiote"), which drops mission loot.
Recommended ships: Drake, any other passive ship
3x Drone Energy Neutralizer Sentry I (> 240km range, including falloff) **Energy Neutralizer**
(After just a few seconds)
(When the BS loses shields)
- It is best to go for passive tanking and leave the towers alone, as they spawn a cloud of angry drones.
- If you are active tanked, then: primary the energy neutralizers, kill the strain drones after the neutralizers (scramblers), and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage.
- Take one tower down at a time, as each one triggers a spawn of its own. (Actually, the towers don't really spawn them... but anyway, watch out.)
Recommended ships: Drake
Pathfinder gate to next stage.
====Second Stage====
----
CategoryCleanup - need a general cleanup.

Revision [2856]

Edited on 2008-11-08 18:41:32 by AnathemaMatou [moved comments out of the main mission report.]
Additions:
- If you shoot the Drone Bunker right away, you get lots of drone spawns in short succession (new spawn every 3-5seconds). In total there were about 30-45 drones and I had to warp out once at the beginning.
- Smartbombing works great with many close-range drones.
**Blitz:** Go straight for the BS, ignore everything else. DPS is a bit heavier than in Part 5.
CategoryNeedInfo - part 2 needs some things verified.

""<small>
Zaknussem adds: When I did this mission, I saved the Mother Drone for last. Killing it spawned 9 drones over by the Drone Bunkers. I guess that if you kill the Mother Drone first, all the drones in the mission will be spawned.
<br><br>
JoachimLeHigh adds: I highly recommend a smart-bomb fitted BS for this mission. I flew this in an apoc fitted with 8 large emp smartbombs, flew in, waited for all of the drones to aggro and enter range, then activated all 8. Once I vaped all of the close-range ships, I came in a beam-fitted harbinger to finish off the rest, as well as the mother drone.
</small>""
""<small>
PeregrinePriscus adds: This mission is actually fairly trivial if done in a Passive tanked drake. 5 Heavy, 2 assault in the high, 3 Shield amps, 3 large shield extenders in the mid, 3 SPRs and 1 BCU in the low, along with two shield extender rigs and a shield power relay rig. When I warped in I focused my heavies on the light missile and stasis towers, and used my light missiles on any frigates that came in range (<36km). I worked over any frigates that came close with the lights, and any destroyers I hit with the heavies. Any pauses I worked on the missile/stasis towers. When the BS spawned, I hit it with the heavies and it went down fairly easily. Right now I'm cleaning up the heavy neut towers one at a time and blasting the spawns before moving to the next. At no time did I drop below 3/4 shielding (18176 shields with 441.76 recharge time).
<br><br>
JoachimLeHigh adds: This is probably the toughest mission in this series. Because of the neuts, my smartbomb strategy didn't work. I recommend a tachyon fitted apocalypse with a cap-transfer cruiser for support till the neuts are down. I also flew this mission with a passive shield-tanked drake and a blasterthron along with my beam apoc, the drake went in first, then the 'thron and I came in. I worked on the towers while the 'thron popped anything with the name "strain" in it.
<br><br>
BenThomas adds: Passive tanking is definitely the way to go with this mission. Each time you take out an energy neutraliser various frigs etc. spawn, even in a well tanked battleship if you take out too many energy neutralisers and forget to take out the other ships you could end up struggling a bit. I took out three energy neuts, took out the spawns, then took out the rest of the neuts and the respective spawns. Then worked my way through everything else starting with the strain drones. In a well tanked passive BS you can solo this very easily. For 90% of the mission I had no cap, and my shields never went below 80%.
<br><br>
CireXinehp adds: completed with a Megathron. I took out all the neuts at range with rails, then came back with the smartbomb trick, then again with rails to take the BS.
<br><br>
MaobihVanire adds: this is rather easy to do in a Damnation. you can target and hit things at over 90km with 5 missile launchers if you mount a sensor booster 2, so when you come into the mission you can move to greater then 80km hitting the neut towers as you go to that distance and not having to turn on MAR's (the greatest consumer of cap for the damnation, and usually have two). any of the drones that get close can be dealt with via small drones + lasers before they are a threat. once the nos towers are gone you can kite the drones around. Also, I think they have toned down the cap drain, i remember watching cap go to nothing rather fast, and was not a problem this time. as of 2008-08-12
</small>""
**Blitz:** bah, go straight for the BS, ignore everything else.
JoachimLeHigh adds: Smartbomb trick works great in the first pocket, but the second pocket only about half the drones come into smartbomb range.


Revision [2853]

Edited on 2008-11-08 17:54:38 by AnathemaMatou [more on part 5 and some cleaning, still needs more]
Additions:
- Several missions have Energy Neutralizer Towers.
You get sent to a belt with 3x Merc Miners (Bestowers, I didn't bother shooting at these and they warp off after a minor so.), 2x Merc Lieutenant, 3x Merc Elite Fighter (Trigger).
Bring mining ship to mine the Green Arisite roid. Theres also 1995 units of normal Gneiss roids in the belt. Take the 47 units of Green Arisite back to the agent.
**Blitz:** Do what your agent told ya - mine, don't shoot.
- The 3 Merc Miners will disappear after a certain time so if you want to kill them, target them first. They drop drugs when killed. Attacking the Miners spawns the 2nd wave of ships.
- I do not always get the 5th and 6th waves of ships. So far, I dunno why. Also, once when fighting the 6th wave of ships, they just up and left in mid-battle.
- There are also approx 16334 units of Omber to be mined in this part.
Extras: **Neutralizer Towers** and **Stasis Towers**
Recommended ships: ++Nighmare++ any passive tanked ship
**Blitz:** Ignore pocket 1, head straight for the lab in pocket 2. You may prefer to kill the Stasis Towers first.
====Warp In====
The Drone Bunker drops some loot. (needs verification)
**Blitz:** Okay, if you're looking to blitz this arc, I assume you're already in your passive tanked ship anyway. So just ignore all the respawns (11 frigs, 4 cruisers, 1 elite cruiser (strain annihilator alvum), 1 battlecruiser) and directly kill the Mother Drone. Simple, really. Watch out for drone aggro.
====Warp In====
3x Drone Light Missile Battery
1x Mother Drone which drops mission loot.
""<small>
<br><br>
</small>""
Extras: **Neutralizer Towers** and **Stasis Towers**
Web/scramble: Strain Drones
The BS Drone (Alvus Ruler) drops the can you need with the " Hive Mind CPU".
====Warp In====
3x Drone Light Missile Batteries
4x - 5x Energy Neutralizers Tower (>= 160 km range including falloff)
===Waves===
After 20-30 seconds, drones start to spawn in small groups. Approximately 25 drones (frigates, cruisers) will spawn in total, approaching you slowly.
After few minutes, a Battleship Drone will spawn (Alvus Ruler, formerly The Large Mother Drone). It has high damage, even on 50km, so be careful. As you shoot the BS, another group of 5 drones (cruisers, battlecruisers) will spawn.
**Blitz:** go in passive tanked, ignore all sentries and neut.towers; while waiting for the BS, kill off the first spawn. Wait for the BS to come out of the range of the stasis towers (you won't have cap to tractor the loot can), then go for it, pick the can, finito.
Alternative Blitz: go in passive tanked, but kill the Stasis Towers early. There's plenty of time to take care of the triggered Strain spawn before the BS drone with the mission loot spawns, and this way you can attack it earlier (while still closer to the structures).
- It is best to go for passive tanking and leave the towers alone, as they spawn a cloud of angry drones.
- If you are active tanked, then: primary the energy neutralizers, kill the strain drones after the neutralizers (scramblers), and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage.
- Take one tower down at a time, as each one triggers a spawn of its own.

Blitz: Ignore pocket 1, head straight for the lab in pocket 2. You may prefer to kill the stasis towers first.
====Pocket 1====
(direct warp-in, no gate)
The Drone Bunker drops some loot.
Blitz: Okay, if you're looking to blitz this arc, I assume you're already in your passive tanked ship anyway. So just ignore all the respawns (11 frigs, 4 cruisers, 1 elite cruiser (strain annihilator alvum), 1 battlecruiser) and just kill the Mother Drone. Simple, really. Watch out for drone aggro.
3x Drone Light missile battery
1x Mother drone which drops mission loot.
Extras: Heavy energy neuts.
Web/scramble: Strain drones
Warning: The combination of neutralizers and web/scramblers is a deadly combination.
The Large mother Drone drops the can you need with the " Hive Mind CPU".
3x Drone Light missile batteries
4x - 5x Energy Neutralizers Tower (>= 160 km range including falloff).
After 1-2 minutes nearly 25 drones(frigates, cruisers) will spawn, but they will fly to you very slowly.
After few minutes Battleship will spawn, The Large Mother Drone. It has high damage, even on 50km, so be careful. As you shoot the BS, another group of 5 drones(cruisers, battlecruisers) will spawn.

- Newcomers for this mission should kill the strain drones after the neutralizers, and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage.

4x Tower sentry drone
2x Drone Stasis tower
2x Drone Neutralizer tower!!!
Destroy "Professor Delainen lab" ( more drones spawn). The prof is in the can dropped by the lab.
If you kill drones lookout and bunker first, there's no spawn when you shoot/destroy the Professor Delainen lab. When you start killing the professor's lab without killing bunker/lookout first, there are 4 strain infester alvis among the spawn, which warp scramble.

==Tip:==

- Newcomers for this mission should kill the strain drones after the neutralizers, and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage. Take one down at a time, as every one triggers a spawn of their own.
- Another tip is to go passive tanking and leave the towers alone, as they spawn a cloud of angry drones.
Recommended ships: Drake
Around 30 small/med drones and the Mother Drone BS you need to destroy. Only drone melts from the Target BS drone.
Kill any drones that targets you, and then the BS. New drone spawns don't always aggro, and can be ignored.

If you shoot the Drone Bunker right away, you get lots of drone spawns in short succession (new spawn every 3-5seconds). In total there were about 30-45 drones and I had to warp out once at the beginning
