Faction: Blood Raiders and Angel Cartel (Blood Raiders in the last pocket)
Mission type: Encounter
Spacetype: Deadspace, with guards at the warp in.
Damage dealt: Em/Therm (very little Kin) from Bloods; All kinds, but heavy EXP/Kin from Angels
Web/scramblers: Elite Frigs, Blood Spy
Extras: NOS (Priest/Dark Priest)
Recommended damage dealing: EM, Therm for the Bloods/ Exp, (Kin 2nd choice) for the Angels.
Recommended ships: Apocalypse, Dominix, Maelstrom, Sacrilege, Nighthawk.

Warp in: "Warzone"


You arrive in the middle of two large groups (135km to the nearest rat) and two gates (40km to each gate approx). One for your primary enemy, and one for the faction mentioned in the mission briefing (in this case, Blood Raiders and Angels). They start far away from you behind their own gate. The gates are locked until you kill the last ship of that faction. But, you can unlock them by carrying Zbikoki's Hacker Card (obtained from Zor) in your cargohold. It will be consumed on activation.

Group 1 (Blood Raiders)

3x Battleship (Oracle/Prophet)
3x Elite Frigate (Follower/Herald)
2x Elite Cruiser (Dark Priest/Shadow Sage)
* 400-450dps (EM 51%/TH 49%)

Group 2 (Angel Cartel)

3x Elite Frigate (Outlaw/Thug)
4x Battleship (Malakim/Throne)
3x Elite Cruiser (Crusher/Smasher)
* ~600dps (EM 1%/EX 78%/KN 18%/TH 2%)

Tip

Blood Raider Pocket


Blood Spys might scramble/web, but may not also. Using drones on them aggros the whole room.

First group will aggro shortly after you enter {2x Blood Spy (Frigate) and 3X Battleship (Apostle/Oracle)}.
Second group {2x Blood Fanatic (Battlecruiser) and 2x Battleship (Apostle/Oracle)} can be attacked separately.
Third group {5 Blood Friars (Destroyers) and 5 Battleships (more Apostles/Oracles)} ... save for last.

Random chance of a Blood Overseer [375k Battleship] spawning. It can be attacked separately without agroing other groups. Every ship that enters the pocket gives the Overseer another chance to spawn.

Warning: if you do it all wrong and aggro all of them --
* Full-aggro is 1100-1200dps (EM 50%/TH 50%) with the occasional kinetic cruise missile from the BS's.

Tips:

Angel Cartel Pocket


Tank: Exp / Kin
Aggro at warp in: Yes (might web too)

Four apparent groups as of October 2009.

Group One auto-aggroes on warp-in -- 2x Angel Spies (Frigates). Range 6km. Possible web/scramble.
Using drones on the Spies causes the whole room to aggro.

Group Two -- range about 20km. Waited until attacked. 4x Gist Viper [webbing frigates], 2x Gist Primus [cruiser], and 3x Gist Saint [battleships]. The Saints throw Bane torpedoes and can hit at 55km or more.

Group Three -- near gate [range 35km]. Waited until attacked. 3x elite Frigates [Arch Gist Hunter/Impaler], 1x elite Battlecruiser [Arch Gist Centurion], 4x battleships [Saint/Warlord]. Warlord battleship is fast and will close the range to under 20km, so kill before the Saints.

Group Four -- range 50km. 5x battleships [Gist Throne/Cherubim]. Cherubim throw Havoc cruise missiles to at least 80km. Thrones are shorter range.

Chance of spawning a Gist Overlord [543k battleship] as well. Chance increases with every ship that enters the room. Overlord waits to be attacked, and attacking it caused the remainder of the room to aggro.

Untested: A second ship (gangmate) present may cause entire room to aggro immediately.
Original player leaving to get more ammo and returning does not cause remaining groups to aggro.


3rd Pocket (Blood Raiders)


*VIP: Killing all the ships in the 3rd pocket trips the "mission completed" flag even IF you do NOT pick up the stranded crew. *
{Ie: If you kill them all, and fail to pick up the crew, you will have to quit the mission with loss of standings from agent, corp, and faction.}

The pocket looks like a single group, but it's actually 3. Use the same technique suggested for the Blood Raider pocket.


First Group auto-aggroes, range under 10km {3x Elite Cruisers (Dark Priest/Shadow Sage) plus 2 Battleships (Apostle/Oracle/Prophet)}. They won't move very fast, so you can get some range on them if you can find a direction to go that doesn't come close to other groups.

Second Group can be attacked separately {4x Elite Frigates (Herald/Upholder) plus 2 Battleships (Apostle/Oracle)}. These frigates can web.

Third Group is the remainder {3x Battlecruiser (Fanatic/Phantom) plus 2 Battleships (Apostle/Oracle/Prophet).

Again, if you do everything wrong [use drones, etc.]
> * Full-aggro is 900-950dps (EM 51%/TH 49%) with the occasional kinetic cruise missile from the BS's.

Tip:
  • Only need to blow up the auto-aggro group to get the ship crew.
  • Keep drones on Passive to prevent any unwanted aggro
  • On occasion, you might - even without drones or partners - aggro all of the groups (some of which can warp scramble). I suggest you put some distance fast between u and the groups you haven't yet aggroed.
