Desolate Site is an Unrated Complex found in high sec and low sec via exploration.

You must be flying a T3 cruiser or smaller to enter the acceleration gate.


On warp in:
Rogue Drones are unpredictable, pilots are advised to tread with care.

Initially there are only two groups on grid. Third group consisting of a frigate and a destroyer appears in few seconds. You can ignore the groups that have destroyers or drones. Destroying the group with frigates only will trigger additional waves.

The first and second spawns appear by the Warning Sign structure.

Initial defenders

Drone 2-3 x Drone Drone Harvester
Frigate 8 x Frigate Silverfish/Decimator/Harvester/Sunder Alvi
Destroyer 1 x Destroyer Dismantler Alvin

If using drones, recall them when the next wave spawns, since they will target drones when spawning.

first spawn

Frigate 3-4 x Frigate Devilfish/Barracuda Alvin
Destroyer 3 x Destroyer Ripper Alvior

Finishing first spawn can trigger escalation.

second spawn

Frigate 3-4 x Frigate Hunter/Barracuda Alvin
Commander Frigate 1 x Commander Frigate Sentient Devilfish Alvin escalation trigger Drops Drone material, has a chance to drop the Rogue drone 46-X chip
Destroyer 2-3 x Destroyer Ripper Alvi


  • Salvage: 814K-1.42M
  • Loot: (sentient drone) Drone Capillary Fluids + Drone Synaptic Relay Wiring (~5m). Possible Rogue Drone 46-X Nexus Chip (~50m). Sentient Modules (~100m) (very rare).
  • Bounties: about 50k (defenders) and 80k (reinforcement)


Mare Sargassum
At first it seems strange the drones have picked this barren and resource deficient place to build a new hive. But then again, while you were blowing up the place, you noticed a few vessels that might have been used as transports, indicating the drones were pulling in the materials they needed from someplace else. As to compliment you on your reasoning, your communication systems start indicating several different incoming transmissions in drone beeps and clicks and after a while you manage to coerce your instruments into pointing out an approximate spatial origin of the message.

Destroying the first spawn group or sentient drone can escalate the site to Mare Sargassum.
