Be careful near the Unidentified Wormholes

Happened to be exploring in Tralasa, Kor-Azor earlier when I came across an Unidentified Wormhole in same system as one of the Drifter towers. Thought I'd approach the wormhole and see what happens. Nothing until 18km, and then wham before I can warp Drifter Battleship manned by Apollo Tyrannos that's been watching me kills my Gila. Go back again in rookie ship and this time there are 4 Circadian Sleepers who proceed to do the same.

I can say something about "getting too close to the wrong hole" at this point.

That must have been one GIANT rock you've been hiding behind.

Seems to be. I knew about their aggression just not when one approached wormhole.

Wormholes and the Jove Observatory.

Circadian Seekers and Drifter Battleships will attack on both occasions, but Drifters only exist currently in systems with Unidentified Wormholes in them.

So are these npcs attacking all the time now? Ive approached them so far on several occasions with no agression. I even approached one of these drifters in my noctis without incident. Im assuming i should just avoid these guys all together? Makes me curious what was on the other side of that wormhole you found.

Destiny always seems decades away, but suddenly it's not decades away; it's right now. But maybe destiny is always right now, right here, right this very instant, maybe.

They will aggress if you either approach the unidentified wormhole or the jove structure. After the first kill, they'll basically kill you on sight for a while.

The wormholes can't be interacted with ...yet. :tinfoil:

yeah I was about to say something like that, either the NPC have the IWIN button to get you no matter what ship you fly or how fast you get there, or the wormhole is just for looks

There's some speculation that they dislike certain ship designs more but this is not fully proven.

Wait.. POSii? POSs..? What the hell is the plural of POS anyways?

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

YES!! YOu may have all the yes, and an internet.

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!?

Is there a cooldown on the drifter's death ray? I wonder what would happen if a group of people bum-rushed the wormhole?

I'm sure no matter what actually happens, the bum rushers will be disappointed. This is Eve?

Thank you for supporting Eve industry.

Edit: Many have visited that wormhole while the drifter is off somewhere else. You cannot jump through it.
