Faction: Serpentis
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace, no gates
Damage dealt: Kin/therm
Extras: Damp
Web/scramble: Stasis Towers.
Additional: Missile Batteries.
Recommended damage dealing: Kin/Therm
Recommended ship classes: Dominix/Ishtar with Logistics support (Dominix), speed tanking Ishtar with dual MAR, Active tanked Tengu
Recommended generic setup:

Single Pocket

Direct warp into ungated deadspace. Full room agro on first shot.

Warp in

You will see 2 groups of ships each consisting of :

2x Frigates, (Coreli Guardian Protector)
6x Battlecruiser, (Corelum Chief Infantry, Coreltis Wing Leader, Corelum Chief Infantry)
4x Battleships, (Core Grand Admiral)

Additionally there are 2 groups of towers each consisting of :

1x Serpentis Stasis Towers
4x Serpentis Heavy Missile Battery

The first timed spawn consists of about a dozen mixed frigates: some guardian, some not.

Destroying the non-elite (not Guardian) frigates of that spawn causes a random Shadow Serpentis Battleship to appear which must be killed to complete the mission.

After the frigate spawn there will finally be another tower spawn:

2x Serpentis Stasis Towers
8x Serpentis Cruise Missile Battery

Note that the time that this second tower spawn occurs is independent of the Shadow Serpentis spawn.

Shoot the initial frigs and the Maulus frigs that spawn in order to spawn the Shadow Serpentis BS. Kill this BS to trigger completion.

I dont think its so very special to solo l5s. I did solo this mission and also others in Drake, Nighthawk or Tengu before. The 2 Serpentis ops are really nice for active tanks, others with Neut Towers can also be done with full passive fittings without logistic (Gurista Honor, Rogue Spy all parts, Wrath/Fate of Angels, Sansha Cleaning House & Horizon).

Solo'd easily with a Hyperion with the following fit:

Armor Rep II
Magnetic Field Stab II
2X Kin hardeners II
2X Therm hardeners II

4x cap rechargers II
100MN Afterburner II

7X compressed coil guns Lead loaded
Drone Link Augmentor

Aux. Nano Pump I

Once I warped in the mission, I burned away from the groups with MWD on, targetted the webbing towers and blew them up first, then got rid of all the frigs. Once that was done, I was out of all heavy missile & cruise missile towers. Took an hour to succesfully complete the mission, including destroying the serpentis homebase ( which does not drop anything good in my opinion, bunch of T1 stuff )

Can anyone confirm that hacking the info shard with an alt character renders the can empty? Ive done this mission twice and if I use my reppign alt to hack the can and try loot it what happens is:

1) Hack the can and warp out while main takes agro
2) come back and wait for ships to die
3) rehack the can to open it
4) check the can and find its empty

For the blitzers:
It's one of the maulus class frigates "serpentis guard/safeguard" that spawn on top of the station after a few minutes that triggers the shadow bs spawn. Tried and tested multiple times 100% success.

==Information by original page author==

It is possible to solo this mission. Mission was solo'd by Shiana Soltek (my main) on 11-25-2009 and completed at 2030 game time in a drake.
Phobos Alliance and Ma-Ven Corp can confirm this was a completely solo on a LVL 5 by a drake pilot.
Contact Shiana Soltek in game if you wish to discuss tactics on soloing this mission.
