Researching The Rogues is a limited time event occurring from 23 September 2021 to 4 October 2021. The Association for Interdisciplinary Research has observed a concerning increase in rogue drone activity across New Eden and has asked capsuleers to investigate.

The event takes place across combat and exploration sites, with low sec variants being the hardest/most profitable. Daily Login Gifts are available to all capsuleers including skill points, new SKINs, and new limited-time AIR boosters.

Agency Description

The Association for Interdisciplinary Research has observed a concerning increase in rogue drone activity across New Eden and has asked capsuleers to investigate.
AIR Rogue Drone Researchers sites are abandoned research and observation facilities appropriate for capsuleer explorers equipped with data analyzer modules.
Rogue Drone Outgrowth Colony sites are full of hostile drones and are appropriate for combat-capable capsuleers flying tech 1 Destroyers or Tech 1 and Faction Frigates.
The sites are appearing in most areas of space, and the versions found in low security space are the most difficult and most rewarding.

Combat Sites

Rogue Drone Outgrowth Colony

These sites are pre-scanned anomalies consisting of 3 pockets. It is possible to be webbed, scrammed and cap drained. The first only contains a gate to restrict access. The second contains waves of enemies, one which is pre-spawned, but not all of them need to be killed to unlock(technically spawn in) the gate for the final room. The final room contains a pre-spawned wave followed by 2 more, then the Colony Nest Overseer which may show up before you clear the previous wave.

The combat sites are designed to be run only by tech 1 frigates, faction frigates, and tech 1 destroyers. Rewards include new AIR SKINs, returning Cryptic Mimesis SKINs, cerebral accelerators, new time-limited AIR scanning boosters, returning blueprint copies for the 'Subverted' JVN-UC49 drone, plus overseer’s personal effects that can be sold in-game for ISK.

Exploration Sites

The signature appears as a level III data site and requires a data analyzer. These sites are a single ungated pocket containing 1 data cache and no hostiles.

AIR Rogue Drone Researchers hacking sites can be probed down in Highsec, Lowsec, Nullsec, and w-space. These abandoned AIR observation posts contain valuable caches of information and resources that can be accessed with the help of a data analyzer module.
