Was in shuttle, first pocket spawn attacked shuttle, but I made it to the gate and completed mission simply by having warped into second area.

Today there was a slight but important gap between entering the second space and getting the completion. Enough to cost me a shuttle.

But almost 700K isk (plus the insurance) in trade for a shuttle and the LP, worth it.

Went in with my tank fitted Myrmidon. Mobs inside 1st gate were no particular problem apart from the time it takes to kill them. They seem to have repair units going. Take out destroyers first to reduce incoming dmg. Used close quarter ammo (Antimatter charges). Would have been difficult in my Thorax I think. A couple of drones bit the dust.

Mobs in 2nd gate were another story. I was forced to warp out twice and 4 drones died. I was using Antimatter charges again but close quarters is lethal in the 2nd gate. With 4 hardeners (2 explosion and 2 kinetic) and 2 Armour Repairer II's going I was forced to flee. Went back with Lead Charges to enable me to get range. Killed frigates first using Warrior drone. Changed drones to Valkyrie and Vespas and then went after the cruisers. Took long time to kill the cruiser but they do go down eventually.

Yes, I know u don't have to kill any of them but it was fun and a test of stamina.
