Spawn triggers are the highest bounty battleships in a particular group. The exact battleship is randomly determined, so be sure to identify them correctly via their bounty. The incoming damage is almost entirely kinetic; only the elite cruisers deal noticeable thermal damage.
In the first pocket, ignore all hostile targets and activate the acceleration gate. Clear the second pocket completely.
Fleet Aggro: The first pilot to enter the pocket will receive auto-aggro from Group 1 only. Any other fleet members who enter afterward will receive auto-aggro from Group 2 upon attacking Group 1. Group 2 and Reinforcements will aggro drones.
The acceleration gate to next room is not locked, and can be activated at any time.
|Group 1 (15-30 km) (auto-aggro)|
|2 x Elite Frigate Dire Pithi Wrecker/Plunderer|
|4 x Battleship Pith Dismantler/...|
|Group 2 (80 km)|
|4 x Elite Cruiser Dire Pithum Inferno/Mortifier|
|3 x Battlecruiser Pithatis Assassin/Assaulter|
|3-4 x Battlecruiser Pithatis Assassin/...|
|3-4 x Battleship Pith Conquistador/...|
|60 x Veldspar|
Attacking Group 2 will aggro Group 3. Reinforcement spawn and elite frigates will aggro drones. Destroying the Starbase Control Tower prevents Reinforcements from spawning, but will also aggro Group 2.
The incoming damage is quite high from Initial Defenders alone. The battleships will orbit at 50 km and attack with Scourge cruise missiles. It is recommended to destroy hostile targets in the following order: Group 1, Group 3, Group 2 (and Reinforcements waves when triggered).
Mission is marked as completed after all ships are dead.
The last ship destroyed from Reinforcements Wave 1 triggers Reinforcements Wave 2.
|Wave 1 (40km)|
|4 x Cruiser Pithum Eraser/...|
|4 x Battleship Pith Eliminator/...|
|Wave 2 (40 km)|
|2 x Cruiser Pithum Eraser/Inferno/Mortifier|
|1 x Starbase Control Tower|
|1 x Habitation Module|
