Mission briefing
Pirates have set up a blockade near a hidden stargate in Larryn, and are swarming over any passersby, which are mostly merchants and civilians. Pirates tend to create these temporary blockades at ill-defended stargates, usually ones which have been set up by civilians and are not guarded by our forces. But we still have an obligation to protect the citizens of Orvanne. Therefore I want you, <Character>, to fly to the stargate and eliminate the illegal blockade.

Large number of damping elite cruisers. Fitting an (extra) Sensor Booster or Signal Amplifier is recommended to counteract the dampening. Avoid triggering additional spawns before previous elite cruisers are dealt with.

Spawns and triggers vary, usually the odd-one-out Battleship is the trigger but not always (below are some examples). Auto and Drone aggro from initial group and all spawns.

Tip: Auto-targeting missiles and drones work even when you are not able to target anything. Marauder with bastion module is immune to damps.

Blitz: Mission is completed when the Core Lord Admiral is killed. Shooting the triggers first to blitz the mission is possible, but not recommended due to very high incoming damage and dampening.

Single ungated pocket. you can (Fleet) warp at preferred distance.
