Mission briefing
With the destruction of the mercenary camp, Lord Manik is denying he ever had any contact with them. I have a copy of your ship's logs from their meeting, but it may prove difficult to pin him with any conspiracy charges.

Good thing I've got a new lead. Remember Lord Darabi, Miyan's rival and the new target of Jariza's wooing? His daughter, Mina, has been one of my contacts. Mina says she has key information, but she will only tell me in person.

This is where the fun part comes in. Daddy Darabi has kept Mina under tight surveillance because of a scandal that happened a few years ago. Thus, we have to stage a kidnapping. This is going to get bloody, but I trust Mina when she says her information is worth it.

Fly to the Darabi estate where Mina is being kept and "kidnap" Mina Darabi. Any guards are expendable.

Lord Darabi

Rumor has it that Lord Darabi was imprisoned by Karsoth for daring to publicly disagree (albeit slightly) with Karsoth's policies about the Succession. When Empress Sarum returned, Darabi was freed, but rumors persist that he is not in the most stable condition. Mina Darabi drops in an untractorable container so you have to fly all the way to it.

The destionation is Reteka (7 jumps).

This mission can be requested and accepted remotely.


  • All spawns start approximately 80k from warp in.
  • The Veteran battleships do very heavy damage if you let them get close (They orbit ~49k).
    • The elite battleships are very slow (139 m/s). If you keep them at 60+ km tanking won't be hard.
  • The green-crewed battleships on the other hand are very weak for battleships.

Single gated deadspace pocket. Once all ships are destroyed the mission object drops near the Amarr chapel.

The last ship destroyed in each group will trigger the next wave.

Elite Battleship 5 x Elite Battleship Independent Veteran Abaddon/...

Structure 1 x Amarr Chapel

Mina Darabi spawns near the Amarr Chapel.

Additional Spawn

If the mission is not completed within 30 minutes after Mina Darabi is collected, the following message will appear:

Pop-up message:
I know salvaging is fun, but there are several hostile ships inbound. I suggest we retreat now. Mina Darabi is too valuable an informant to lose.

Approximately 5-10 seconds after that message appears, a new battle group will spawn. There are no bounties and relatively poor salvage from this spawn.

Additional Spawn

Elite Frigate 6 x Elite Frigate Independent Veteran Crucifier/Inquisitor Warp Disruptor Stasis webifier
Elite Cruiser 6 x Elite Cruiser Independent Veteran Omen/Maller/Augoror Tracking disruption Energy neutralizer
Elite Battleship 6 x Elite Battleship Independent Veteran Armageddon/... Energy neutralizer

This spawn is incredibly strong. It is suggested that pilots bring additional fleet members with logistics. Ships do not award bounties, but may drop faction tags and loot/salvage.
