Mid-end Gurista escalation site. Soloable in a single well fitted, high skilled PvE BS and dead easy in a T3; easy to run in a drake with remote rep support. Quite similar to the other pirate fortresses.


First room

Has 2-4 groups of rats. Two of the groups are composed of 3-4 BS and 3-6 BC/Cruisers each, while the other two have 3-4 BC's/Cruisers and 3-6 frigates. The cruiser groups aggro together, the BS groups aggro separately. Aggression is triggered when you do damage to a member of a group.

Second room

3 cruise batteries 3 stasis batteries, 4BS and around 20 mixed frig/cruiser/HAC/BC's. Everything agresses at you straight away, but its actually pretty easy to tank, there are less jamming ships as well. The only annoying part is the stasis towers that are 70+km off the warpin and webs you to around 10m/s which leads to a lot of slowboating if your weapons don't reach that far. The escalation trigger is one of the four gurista bunkers next to the batteries.

There is a possibility of a mid-tier Dread Gurista BS spawning after killing the non agressing rat in the second room.

First escalation: Hired Gun (Part 1)

Upon warpin there is a deadspace gate guarded by another 6 BS, 5 cruisers and (possibly) a Dread Guristas BS.

Second room is empty except for a Gallente military station ruins building. If killing the DG spawn in the 1st room doesn't do it, approach the station to get a chance at a further escalation.

Second escalation: Hired Gun (Part 2)

This is a naked deadspace pocket (no gate) with 5 BS, 1 Dread Guristas BS, and a number of support ships ranging from Dire Pithi frigates to Pithatis BCs. They aggro immediately and offer no unusual challenges (Khefron: I wasn't tackled and was jammed infrequently during this site). The site escalated after killing a certain percentage of the rats (the DG boss was still alive). The trigger may be one of the Dire Pithum Abolishers.

Third escalation: Hired Gun (Part 3)

This initially looks much the same as part 1, although the DG BS spawn is somewhat higher grade. Upon warping through the acceleration gate you'll find 1 BS, 4 jamming cruisers, and a smattering of other lesser rats surrounding a rock about 20km away from the warp in. Killing the last rat here gives you your escalation message.

Final escalation: Hired Gun (Part 4)

Upon arriving at the site, you'll find an acceleration gate. After taking the gate, you'll be dumped right on top of another gate, but surrounded by about 8 jamming cruisers, 3 BS, and several frigates. Expect to be jammed continually in this room.

The second room contains another 8-10 jammers, 4-5 BS, and a number of frigates and battlecruisers. Oh yeah, it also has a Dread Pith Protagonist, the star of this escalation. In his wreck you might find some Pith A-type loot.
