Gurista Scout Outpost, or Tale of the Blind Battlecruiser

As I've mentioned before, I can be a bit of a bastard when it comes to exploring. I feel I can now relate, on some levels, to the popular Ninja Salvagers.

A few nights ago I happened on a Gurista Scout Outpost (4/10) in highsec.

Gurista Scout Outpost:

Room 1: burn to other gate, kill all rats to proceed. Kill officer rat first and obtain tier 7 overseer effects.

Room 2: The main target is always the satellite dish, but take out the officer ship first so that his wreck belongs to you. Sometimes he has faction gear. Destroy the satellite as soon as you've reduced incoming dps to manageable level. Make sure you are right beside it when it blows, so that you can loot it fast. You will usually get faction shield resists, 8th tier overseer effects, and occasionally, a pithum c-type medium shield booster (cha-ching!)

So, back to the story, I entered the first room, and hm, there were no rats. And no wrecks, which is odd, unless someone is slowboating and salvaging as they go. I warp to the second room.

The explosion of the satellite can be seen in the distance. I am probably too late. Rats are buzzing around it like flies. I notice local blinking like crazy. I check, and its' full of smack "How dare you I'm already working this site!" yada yada yada. "Whore!" That got my attention. "Who you callin' whore?" I respond back. I realized later he was not smack-talking at me, but at someone else.

I can see Mr. Offended's battlecruiser and drones way off in the distance. Then I see something else at the can where the station was, just before it goes to warp. No way, it can't be...some ballsy player waltzed right up to the loot in a RETRIEVER and took his loot! "I just came for the plag" he says, while I am killing myself laughing.

  1. That's hilarious. I came across this blog looking for some quick info on the complex and appreciated the immediate info.
