Mid-range Blood Raider escalation complex. Easy to complete with pulse apoc/dominix combination, probably soloable in a Marauder. Also appears as "Blood Raider Fortress".

Contents

site is gated

First room

Rats appear in three groups around 40km from the warpin, they don't appear to aggro until attacked and each group appears to aggro independently.

  • 16x Frigs
  • 8x Cruisers and BCs (Some of these cruisers can use energy neutralizers and tracking disruptors)
  • 11x BSes (Patriarchs and Monsignors)

Warp gate is 25km from the entrance.

Trip report 6/15/09: Confirmed three groups that aggro separately. Easy to solo.

Trip report 12/9/09: Room empty, cruised right through to gate. Dominion bug? --Myrtarous 18:47, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Trip report 12/10/09: 1st room as expected (populated), could have been someone who had to leave after clearing it.

Second room

Aggro on warp in, ~40km from warpin

  • 10x Frigs
  • 5x Cruisers and BCs
  • 5x BS (Patriarchs and Popes)

Second spawn, appears when you kill the last cruiser.

  • 0-1x Dark Blood BS
  • 3x BS (Monsignor)
  • 4x Cruisers (tracking disrupt, neut)

There is a large collidable structure, Blood Raider Battlestation, 20km from the warpin. It has a ridiculous amount of hp, but pop it for a chance at an escalation. (Note: Sentry Drones will effectively damage station, with other drones, send them to attack and once they orbit the structure, if they are not firing, recall them for a second and resend them to attack. They will now damage the station.) If it doesn't escalate it will fail silently, no pop-up.

Escalation Message:

Dubious Assignment: As the bits and pieces from the disintegrated station charge into space, carrying the news of heightened entropy in the universe, your instruments receive an unusual message. It obviously is being transmitted from a Blood Raider ship and even though the person on the other end does not introduce himself as such, there is no doubt that this voice originates in a throat honed for the chilly, whispering and emotionless manner of speaking which is so typical for old timers within the Blood Raider Covenant. He demands talking in a closed channel and after you have establised one, he continues with some congratulations on your brave victory and then he gives you an offer; If you go to three different locations he provides, assassin the Blood leaders operating there and gather all loot you find for him, he will pay you one billion ISK. He then gives you coordinates to a location in a "take it or leave it" manner, before saying farewell and adds that he will contact you after this first target is destroyed.

Trip Report 12/13/09 DB Spawn dropped an energized thermic plate and no salvage. No escalation after popping battlestation. Bounty including DB was 30M+.

Trip Report 01/15/10 DB Spawn dropped energized thermic plate and magnetic plating + t2 salvage. No escalation after popping station. Based on all these trip reports, it looks like if there is a DB spawn, and it doesn't escalate after killing it, it probably won't escalate after killing the battlestation either.

Dubious Assignment (Part 1)

First Room

Warp in on top of a gate with

  • 0-1x Dark Blood BS

In game text "Your sensors are picking up a signal..." but no escalation popup so presumably this deadended.

Escalation Message:

Dubious Assignment: Finally your communication instruments come alive as this devious Blood Raider who hired you starts talking on the private channel. Even though the place was empty, he commends you on a job well done and gives you directions to the next assassination target.

Escalation Message:

Dubious Assignment: After blowing up his third rival, you have probably come closer than you ever will to hear how a sadistic head honcho with the Blood Raider Covenant sounds when he is ecstatically pleased. He gives you one last location, tells you to come meet him there and take with you everything you looted from the three raids. It is payday.

6/19/09 trip report: the rats don't aggro until you shoot them so just come in, slowboat away and get to work. Escalated once the DB died.

6/29 TR: they did aggro on warpin. Last time, I used a pod to scout first. That might mess up their trigger?
