Pocket 2 of 2 (Bonus)

BE CAREFUL HERE! This is known to be one of the hardest places out of all Level 4 missions DPS-wise. Normal L4 Battleships might get popped here!

All Aggro on Warp in

15x Battleships (Alvus Queen/Matriarch Alvus)
15x Frigates (Strain Sunder Alvi/Strain Raider Alvi) (scramble) (Hunter Alvi/Barracuda Alvi)
10x Cruisers (Striker Alvatis/Defeater Alvatis/Crippler Alvatis)

Hint: The total ships come in 3 waves and each wave is triggered by killing the Strain Sunder Alvi's off from each group) spawns over time. (less than a minute between the spawns)
The gallente carrier drops a Federation Navy Fleet Rear-Admiral tag

Actual advice: This second room broke the tank on my vargur. That hasn't happened in any mission before.
The carrier wreckage (not an actual ship) is based on whatever faction you run the mission for. I got a minmatar carrier wreck from a SoE mission, hence I suppose the tag would be of that faction as well.

Kill the tackle first. Do not warp out if you do not have to, because if you do - the entire mission spawns will be triggered when you come back. You'll be facing volleys of easily 4000 - 6000 DPS. Fit accordingly.

Tanked the whole pocket in a Golem with an XL Shield Boost burst-tank. Align out, hit Bastion and try to keep your shield at 100%. Spawns will hit you hard, focus the Battleships and let your Drones take on the Strain Sunder and Strain Raider Alvis so that you can warp out if necessary. My cap never even dropped to 50%.


Mission complete when destroying the Infested Station in the first pocket , no drones have to be destroyed, except scrammers of course.


No structures drop loot.

Loot + Salvage
