Especially for Blops groups. The rats tackle without fail AND you can get Arazu into the site cloaked without starting the timer. If I where a low-sec hot dropper I'd be swimming in my own saliva right now. Big smile

I dont spend much time in K space, as a high class wormholer, but I love the idea of difficult sites that me and my corpmates could occasionally find and run as a nice challenge.

I also love the idea of difficult sites that force people to actually stay and run, risks included. No more of this bot like " watch lcoal and run at first site of unfriendly" nonsense.

CCP also hasn't said what the loots supposed to be, so I am hoping/ assuming itll be something good to merit the difficulty/risk.

Finally, whats a "blood raider prophecy"?



One of these.

Are you a forum alt? Have you ever wondered why your experience on the forums is always so frustrating and unrewarding? This may help.

Yep. There are 6 or 8 new skins out of the 20 or so coming with Kronos that only drop in low sec, no NES purchasing or LP store BPC's.

While there's still NPCs on grid. Pretty different to the current Ghost sites, where the NPC are just an annoyance that needs to be tanked.

While the NPC have a decent tank, their damage isn't yet implemented (volleys of 0). They also don't leave behind wrecks.
Once the site despawns, all that's left is a bug.

Let's see when there's a DEV note on the sites.

Oh, and Warpin Message hints that there are NPC waiting (like the site name also suggest)
Sisi Build 788467 brought some changes:
Ghost site rats now apply damage and it appears like their tank also got lowered. The single container in that site contains loot now. The one I've found had http://i.imgur.com/DfXUwkj.png.

How tankable are the rats? And what sort of damage did you need to clear it?

I didn't investigate with too much detail. It was a total of (if I remember correctly) 4 Cruiser models and 6 BS models. I startet with a Barghest using RHML (Scourge Fury) Orthrus using RHML (Inferno Fury). That worked well with the Cruisers, they popped nearly instantly. The BS not that much. Got myself support from a Kronos and the two ships slowly brought them down one by one.

Tank wise I went for Kin/Therm resists as I assume that thei'll keep that damage profile. No big deal with standard PvE fitting.

But this may not only still be subject to change but also will require closer analysis with better known parameters Smile

I've got the Combat log analysis here:

Just to confirm.. Mordus BPCs will be found in Asteroid Belts.. has anyone had them drop yet on Sisi? What's the experience with the rats?

The Mordus anomalies are dropping different loot (not Mordus BPCs), is this correct?

It would be nice if we could get a tad bit more info about these sites... that way we would know if they are working as intended or just really fubar.

Agreed with MeBiatch there. Rumor is that there's something coming? I figure we'll get a devblog tomorrow, and then crash testing over the weekend.

so i actually finished one this time. much easier but still had to be in a snake with 1600 dps to do it :P

it dropped a vanity skin for a desi some research stuff that I assume will be used in some sort of new tech down the line and a slow grade slave alpha

Thank you for rescuing us, capsuleer! This is delicate research we've been doing, and these attacking forces might have ruined it completely. Plus taking our lives

Got 2 sites. Was in ham ab orthus. Had only nova missiles.

First site was easy (only BSes take long to drill). Cruisers were applying warp disruption at about 20km and webs at about 10km. Passively tanked them without much scratching the shield.
Got thukker thrasher BPC and the new warp speed module BPC.

Second site started easy (1 cruiser 2 or 3 BSes).But the second wave got a nasty BS with 25km webs and 35km point with strong damage. I was orbiting 5km when it spawned. By the time I got out of web and point range, I had my meds scorched to 80% and 3% shield left. Repaired in the next system, returned, orbited safely at 30, killed some BSes, and the site despawned on timer.

Also. The research stuff mentioned above are good old covert research tools like in regular ghost sites. They are like dedspace boxes, only sold to pirates instead of concord.
