Operation Frostline

I ran a bunch of the new "Operation Frostline" sites on the test server and i thought i might give you guys a heads up, if you haven't already rum them yourself or haven't read about it on reddit.

Basically it's just a slightly modified version of the Blood Raider Gauntlet.
The first room of the site will have 3 waves, each spawning 5 serpentis frigates. They use sensor dampeners, but no web/scrams. You have to destroy all of them, to be able, to use the acceleration gate to the 2nd room. There you will find 3 waves of 4 serpentis cruisers. No webs/scrams either. After you have destroyed all the cruisers, a final battlecruiser will spawn, which drops the loot container you want.

This is the loot i got from running 33 sites on SISI. As you can see, the serpentis shirt (male and female) aswell as 1 unit of Quafe zero are guaranteed drops. Furthermore you can get skins, boosters, faction modules, implants and prosthetics. It seemed, that you get higher value implants with lower sec status (high/low/null), but i'm not yet sure about that.

All in all, the site is pretty easy. It takes a little longer, than the Blood Raider Gauntlet, since you cannot blitz the 2nd room.

Of course there is still the possibility of CCP changing something about the site until it finally gets released on TQ.


So, what do you think? Have you run any of these sites yourself and what loot did you get?

Just a bunch of crappy loot. No temporary attribute boosters? Not even any good event unique stuff other than some clothes. Boring, Seems CCP failed to grasp what made the last event so interesting - temporary attribute boosters. I was looking forward to this event. Not any more Ugh

Heres an interesting test.

Try putting your head inside a YF-12a and see if the potention for Alpha damage exists.

Id like some free isk please. If it's so meaningless to you.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

Tried them today ... time to complete is a bit slower compared to the blood raider sites. The frigs are weaker but you have to kill the cruiser waves this time. Loot is guaranteed about 15m-20m estimated (compared to 3m for the blood skins). Can't say about other loot, cause nothing else beside the clothes and quafe zero dropped from the 3 sites I ran.

STUPID US, we don't get EVE information from REDDIT, we get it HERE from CCP and its STAFF.

Unless of course CCP's staff has moved to Reddit. Something we don't know about STAFF??

Cool

There just isn't anything that can be said!

Today I undocked to look for the new sites, and 47 highsec systems later still haven't found a single one. So I ask: are them locked by ship classes?

Still on SiSi (test server) ... they will come to TQ on Dec. 8th. No ship class lock.

I undocked at Sisi, obviously. And couldn't find any of the new sites in 47 systems... I assume they're like anomalies and there's no need to probe them down, so I just used the system scanner aboard a PvE Skiff *cough*.
