I have just taken a trip to Hjoramold as these COSMOS missions are somewhat of a hobby of mine, when I warped to P XII M 1 I found the full spawn of drones approx 200km off the warp in.

Sooo just a recap : the Cosmos site location (Hjoramold XII Moon I) for the Cosmos mission (Attack Of The Rogue Drones - ST 60), offered by Minmatar Cosmos Agent Sungur Tyrfin, is still good.

Just have to recheck the site if no NPC's are present since the site beacon is always active in the Overview which allows public access.

This is not a site with an overview beacon, it is not a site that has a probe signature, its just a bunch of rogue drones and a couple of structures (LCO's) sat in space for anyone to see.

This is not one of those sites that got messed up by the implementation of the new scanning mechanics (however many years ago that was now).

If you warp to planet 12, moon 1 and do not see any drones or LCO's then I would bet on one of the following.

someone has recently killed them all and you need to wait for a respawn
someone has messed with the grid
you do not have deadspace rogue drone's set to show on your overview

There's not a lot of people running Cosmos missions and definitely not for this agent so how can other players see this site if there's no beacon listed in the Overview ?

Anyway according to intel, the site location is static and always active, just needs time to reset.

the agent tells you were to go, however I've been to that moon twice now and didn't see a thing either time. I have to wonder what the respawn time is and if it is anywhere near what would be considered a reasonable time.

First time out was when the op first posted, and second time was after Jocca Quinn went over and killed it. so probably just caught it between respawns, but it makes me wonder how long that respawn is

We haven't been playing EVE for a few weeks or more for various reasons but isn't Hjoramold the system where about half a dozen COSMOS mission locations have to be probed down Question If I'm recollecting correctly then once you have those locations bookmarked they don't change ever and you can go there again to do the missions with alts etc.

PS the locations I refer to have to be probed down with probes and a good ship, equipment, and skills are required.

Regarding DeMichael's comment there are not a lot of people doing COSMOS missions but there are quite a few regulars doing them who 'farm' the key objects required to complete the COSMOS missions. They then put the items up on contracts for quite large sums of ISK. I have found though if you contact them they will sell multiples of the items at lower prices. So dependent on your time zone it can be tricky to complete the COSMOS missions. Generally the best option is to research the items needed that can be farmed and gather those first BEFORE starting to actually accept the COSMOS missions. Otherwise you could lose the mission bonus rewards, and in a worst case scenario, have the missions fail due to farmers stopping you completing the missions. The farmers operate for multiple hours at a time so it can really **** you up and be extremely annoying.

I just checked my notes and the others were correct about it being farmable at Hjoramold XII - I. So best to get there immediately after DT or as I said before collect all the key objects up beforehand whenever possible. There is only one mission I think where you have to kill the rats as well so this method works on most of them.

I think the respawn time is about an hour on most of these sites. Waiting an hour for another one to arrive helps you remember these things. Smile
