Guristas Epic Arc - Smash and Grab

From UniWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is a stub. You can help the UniWiki by expanding it.



Each epic mission arc is a special series of missions tied together in a dramatic story. These are often more difficult than standard missions of "equivalent" level, but have better narrative and often better rewards. The last mission in each arc gives a significant faction standing boost - with no derived standings changes to other factions - and may also award a valuable item. Each epic arc has at least one branch point where your decision of how to continue will affect both the story and your rewards.

The epic arcs can involve a lot of travel, but many of the missions can be accepted and/or completed remotely to reduce travel time. Epic arc missions do not expire, and each arc can be repeated every three months.

Work in progress. I am collecting information but most sources are old and some things may have changed. I am about to run this arc and will verify this information as I go along.

Warning: one of the missions half way through will require Hacking skill and a Codebreaker module (one is provided by agent) so make sure you have the skills needed beforehand.

The evidence is dropped by the Caldari Bunker structure upon destruction.


Final Notes

At the end of Mission 7 you should have a nice reward:

  • Reward: 1 Dread Guristas ECM Multispectral Jammer


At the end of Mission 11b or 12a you should have your final mission reward:

  • Reward: 1 one run Gila blueprint copy + Guristas Pirates faction standing


Be careful getting your loot out. It was a lot of work to get through all this and it would be a pity to lose your =rewards on your way back to highsec.
