Warp In

Toward a Solution (3 of 7)


Mission type: Courier


The Unveiling (4 of 7)


Faction: Rogue Drones
Space Type: Deadspace
Mission Type: Encounter
Damage dealt: All kinds
Recommended Damage Dealing: EM.
Recommended: Nightmare, Drake

Kill the mother drone and get the Elite Drone AI from the can its drops and take to your agent.

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

Arrive at belt 1 Large Drone and an almost never ending respawns of small/med drones.
When you warp in (nearly 30km from enemies) there are:
3x Drone Light Missile Battery
1x Supreme Alvus Parasite ("Delainen-ROM Symbiote") which drops mission loot.

Almost 35-40 ships will spawn after you kill BS.


An unexpected Twist (5 of 7)


Faction: Rogue Drones
Mission Type: Encounter
Space Type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: All kinds
Recommended Damage Dealing: EM.
Extras: Neutralizer Towers and Stasis Towers
Web/scramble: Strain Drones
Recommended ships: Nightmare, Nighthawk, Drake, any other passive ship.

The BS Drone (Has Different Names) drops the can you need with the " Hive Mind CPU".

Warp In

You warp in in 55-60km from(insta aggro):
2x Stasis Tower (out of range) [shooting them spawns 2x Strain Frigates, amongst other things]
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).

Tip:


Nanite Express (6 of 7)


Mission type: Courier


Ascendance (7 of 7)


Faction: Rogue Drones
Mission Type: Encounter
Space Type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: All kinds
Recommended Damage Dealing: EM.
Recommended ships: Drake

Warp In

Arrive at deadspace to find 20 or so small/med rogue drones. Pathfinder gate to next stage.

Second Stage

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.

Blitz: Go straight for the BS, ignore everything else. DPS is a bit heavier than in Part 5.
