Incipient Drone Swarm is a Rogue Drone combat anomaly that spawns in Pochven. The site is the easiest of the Pochven anomalies and is generally run only for the loot and standings.

The site has three waves, each dealing around 200 DPS. The Rogue Drones (excluding Vexing and Punishing types) have a lot of EWAR, but it is very weak and can be easily ignored.

All rats, except for the occasional "Overmind" ships, are drone-sized targets. None of the ships, including battleships, warp scramble. Rats can drop Interstellar Navigation Logs which can be traded to Triglavian stations for valuable items. The salvage is the same as with Rogue Drones in K-Space.

The Overminds deal around 50-100 DPS each from long range, but have poor tracking on their guns. They have a lot of EHP, often around 100K, but can be tanked fairly easily. The carriers have small scan resolution and often take around 15 seconds to lock. They will orbit you at around 45-50 km. Recommended weapons to destroy them include torpedoes and cruise missiles due to their good application and high damage to battleships and above.

The Grazing Phase-0 Forager deals no damage and has no EWAR, but has a lot of structure HP and can take a while to destroy. It has the signature radius of a battleship, though.

Each wave can have up to 8 or 9 ships.

Once a certain number of enemies from the last wave are destroyed the rest of the ships warp off and the site is considered complete.

Completing the site awards a 8,500,000 ISK payout from Triglavian Collective. The ISK is scaled depending on how many people run the site.
