Faction: Guristas
Mission type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: Kin, Therm
Web/Scramble: Dire Pithi Arrogator/Imputor
Extras: Jamming
Recommended damage dealing: Kin, Therm
Recommended ships: Battlecruisers, Recons, HACs

Guarding the Gate

Aggro from all, 20km from warp-in.

5x Frigate (Pithi Plunderer/Wrecker)
2x Frigate (Dire Pithi Arrogator/Imputor) Scram & Web

Acceleration Gate to next pocket is at 38km.

Pocket 1

No aggro on warp in. Shoot anything and the entire pocket aggros.

Group 1 (~50km)

5x Cruiser (Pithum Annihilator/Mortifier)
1x Battlecruiser (Pithatis Assassin/Assaulter)

Group 2 (60-90km near War Installation)

2-3x Frigate(Pithi Demolisher/Destructor)
2-3x Destroyer (Pithior Guerilla/Renegade)
2x Cruiser (Pithum Abolisher/Eraser)

War installation drops t1 loot. (Takes a fair amount of damage, drops random ammo and loot, not worth the time it takes to blow it up.)

Pocket 2

Only Group 1 aggros on warp in.

Group 1 (30-40km)

3x Destroyer (Pithior Anarchist/Nihilist)
2x Frigate (Pithi Plunderer/Wrecker)
3x Frigate (Dire Pithi Arrogator/Demolisher/Destructor/Imputor) Arrogator/Imputor Web & Scram

Group 2 (25-40km)

7x Cruisers (Pithum Ascriber/Inferno/Mortifier/Silencer)

Group 3 (50-65km)

3-4x Cruiser (Pithum Inferno/Mortifier)
3-4x Battlecruiser(Pithatis Enforcer/Executor)

It's possible to shoot the groups in the given order without aggro from the others. However shooting group 3 will aggro group 2.

Pocket 3

Pocket 3 appears to be a random addition to this mission, you might get it, you might not. If you do get it, it is required for mission completion

Group 1

Auto Aggros
4x Frigate
3x Destroyer

Group 2

8x Cruisers

Group 3

3x Cruiser
3x Battlecruiser

Group 2 not required for completion. Group 3 can be range-aggressed without pulling Group 2 (however you then get drone aggro from Group 2).

35 x Veld, content not measured

Room 3 includes Nullifiers and something (didn't catch what it was but bet it was a frigate) that scrambles.

Corwin is right, in this mission there can be scrambling. Together with jamming it can be a problem in if your tank is not holding.

Shooting the war installation might be time consuming, its got plenty of hitpoints (350k from what I calculated). The loot is just normal t1-stuff, some chance on a named launcher or railgun. I doubt its worth the time and ammo though.

Room 1: had 2 Dire Pithi Inputor's which webbed and scrambled.

Room 2: the group by the gate aggro'd me as I approached the gate and attacking them did not aggro the rest of the room. The rest of the room seemed to aggro when I got within about 10km of the gate.

as the last sentence states, group 2 can be identified by shooting at the only "Pithum Killer".
worked fine for me, and my assa frig

Please post any named drops from the War installation if you get them. I did not get any named items from it.

Guarding the Gate: Arrogators were warp scrambling. And the EW Frigates did not jam me once.

Pocket 1: No jamming at all. War Installation drop no named loot.

Pocket 2: Annihilators & killers were jamming, imputers was warp scrambling (Groups 1 & 2).

Room 1: Did not get jammed, however the named EW cruisers were at 42km to 45km rather than 50 to 60 km.

1 roid/82k veld about 65km behind the warp in point (about 100km from Pleasure Hub)

It appears that pocket 3 has been removed (and the mineable asteroids moved to pocket 2)

Pocket 3 is still there along with the roids.

The two times I have got this mission, pocket three has not shown up. It may be that pocket three now appears as a random addition to the mission if others are still getting it.

Pirates make heavy use of Scourge Heavy Missiles and Bloodclaw Light Missiles. Have Kinetic protection to greatly reduce incoming damage. Kinetic damage seems to be the most effective against them.

Here's a partial bounty list of the pirates. I've done this missile multiple times and not all of ships might appear.

Pithatis Enforcer: 135,000
Pithatis Executor: 131,250
Pithum Eraser: 76,875
Pithum Inferno: 74,063 (fires Scourge Heavy Missiles)
Pithum Mortifier: 68,438 (fires Bloodclaw Light Missiles)
Pithum Nullifier: 62,813
Pithum Annihilator: 57,188
Pithum Murderer: 51,563
Pithum Killer: 45,938
Dire Pithi Demolisher: 28,125
Dire Pithi Destructor: 27,000
Dire Pithi Imputor: 19,125
Dire Pithi Arrogator: 18,000
Pithi Saboteur: 18,000
Pithior Renegade: 13,500
Pithior Guerilla: 13,500
Pithior Anarchist:: 11,813

Only the 2 pockets, and although a reasonable amount of loot from the war installation, nothing names from it.

I got 6 non-named meta 0 drops from the war installation.
The accel get in pocket 1 always dropped me at least 35km from the gate in pocket 2, making the veld roids too much trouble

Did this yesterday and got rooms 1 & 2 as described. Today (after Incarna) got this:

Pocket 1:
Group 1 - 4 Pithi Wreckers
1 Pithi Plunderer
2 Dire Pithi Imputor

Pocket 2:
Group 1 - 3 Pithum Mortifier
Group 2 - 1 Pithum Mortifier
1 Pithum Inferno
1 Pithatis Assaulter
Group 3 - 2 Pithum Eraser
1 Pithi Demolisher
1 Pithum Abolisher
1 Pithi Destructor
2 Pithior Renegade
1 Pithior Guerilla

Not sure about groups. First strike on a Mortifier aggroed entire pocket.

War Installation was in Pocket 2, dropped 2x 100 missiles, small armor rep, small nos & small energy neut, 1 150mm railgun 1. Not worth the effort.

Pocket 3:
Group 1 - 8 Frigates - Auto aggro
Group 2 - 7 Cruisers
Group 3 - 7 Cruisers
Each group aggroed independently

In Pocket 3, Group 2 aggroed with Group 3, but was not necessary for completion.

No jamming. Not too bad in a Harbinger with T2 tank, but had to warp out once. 1.4M salvage, 1.8M loot.
