Incursion Vanguard site.
Objective is to mine 255 units of Lyavite ore from an asteroid and drop it in a can that spawns when some rats have been killed. The roid can be mined with mining drones, so a logistics with mining drones comes in handy. If you have ore lying around from previous sites you just drop it in the can and forget mining.
Ignore the Eysturs in this site (Everytime Your Shoot Them, Ur Retarded), since only Romis and Tamas are triggers. Additionally, if a Romi spawns during a wave instead of when all Tamas are killed, this is a "fake" Romi and should not be killed as it isn't a trigger for the can to spawn. Also sometimes an Antem Neo or Yulai Crus Cerebi spawns, but those can be safely ignored as well. Shoot only Mara, Schmael, Niarja and Tama.
Preferred fleet composition is 3 Guardians (with mining drones) and 7 Zealots or equivalent.
Warp in. Anchor burns away from the Mara Paleo while everyone else burns towards the Mara. Kill the Schmael in passing and possibly a Romi. The anchor can also burn towards the Mara if it appears it will get stuck on the station, but that decision needs to be made quickly when landing. After the Mara is dead, orbit the anchor and kill the Romis while one or more guardians mine. The miner needs to mine the Lyavite ore and not Veldspar, should take around 2 cycles from mining drone Is. Excess ore can be saved and used in other mining sites.
Killing the Romi spawns the can. Drop 255 ore in can, receive ISK and go on your merry way to a new site.
Flying as anchor
The first person in, preferably a HAC or T3 cruiser, will be the anchor.
An anchor uses the following path:
If you notice the current target the fleet is shooting is getting out of range, don't be afraid to change the course and get closer to it. You will also need to keep an eye on your miner and not let him go out of range (around 70km). If he's 50km or further away head in his general direction, activate your afterburner and ask everyone else to activate it also.
