Mindflood is an expedition found by completing Serpentis Hideout signatures. It contains four parts, each of which will be 4-8 jumps from the previous system, in high sec space (though the route may include lowsec).

Walkthrough

Sites are not gated, and can be completed in a T1 frigate at range, though larger ships will be safer. The final named frigate requires around 50 DPS. In all sections, killing the Shadow Serpentis named frigate will trigger the next phase.

In the second room in each phase there is usually Elgur Erinn escorted by two frigates and they will warp away immediately.

Rewards

Each part has a commander rat which, when killed, will drop faction ammunition and Shadow Serpentis tags. Typical module drop includes a Vortex Compact Magnetic Field Stabilizer. The commander may also drop implants, e.g. Mid-grade Snake Beta (and possibly Shadow Serpentis modules by comparison with other escalations, but not seen). Salvaging commander wrecks may generate T2 salvage.

Elgur Erinn drops Coreli C-Type modules.
