If you're not salvaging all the drone compounds then the reliable loot tops out at around 35M isk, with the possibility of a decent extra drop from the overseers. The entire complex is easily tankable in a speed / range fit cerberus, but be prepared to spend a couple of hours clearing it, particularly the final boss. Rooms have around a 50km slog from warp in to the next gate, so when summoning reinforcements, tell your corp mates to fit an afterburner!

Room 1[edit]


Spawn (40 - 60 km)
3-5 x (Frigate) Decimator/Hunter/Raider Alvi
2 x (Cruiser) Violator Alvum

Structure drops 9th Tier Overseer Personal Effects.

You can gain access to the gate by having the 9th Tier Overseer Personal Effects in your cargo hold.

Room 2 - Via Surging Accelerating Gate[edit]


8 x (Sentry) Rogue Drone Sentry Gun
3 x (Sentry) Drone Point Defense Battery
2 x (Frigate) Strain Infestor Alvi (Stasis Webifier)
2 x (Frigate) Raider/Sunder Alvi
12 x (Cruiser) Viral Infector/Violator/Devastator Alvum
1 x (Battleship) Drone Commandeered Battleship (Drops 10th Tier Overseer's Personal Effects)

The contents of the cans are generally ammo, minerals, or occasionally drone alloys.

There are also two gates in this room.

The first, an Ancient Acceleration Gate, unlocks when all hostiles are killed. This gate leads to Room 3.

The second, a Surging Accelerating Gate, requires the skill "Plasma Physics" trained to Level 4. (It may also require a Zbikoki's Hacker Card)

Room 3 - Via Ancient Acceleration Gate[edit]


4 x (Frigate) Hunter/Silverfish Alvi
3 x (Cruiser) Bomber/Disintegrator Alvum
3 x (Battlecruiser) Crippler/Defeater/Enforcer Alvatis
1 x (Sentry) Drone Light Missile Battery

Industrial derelict drops 11th Tier Overseer Personal Effects. Usurped Freight platforms drop random ammo.

Room 4[edit]

Another Ancient acceleration gate takes to to the next room.


2 x (Frigate) Devilfish/Silverfish Alvi
8 x (Cruiser) Viral Infector Alvum
2 x (Battlecruiser) Striker Alvatis
4 x (Battleship) Alvus Controller
1 x (Battleship) Swarm Preserver Alvus
1 x (Battleship) Swarm Parasite Worker (Overseer)

The containers have t1 modules and ammo and some drone compounds. The overseer drops at 12th tier overseer's effects (and possible t2 salvage). This has a pretty strong tank and may need an alt or a corpmate to help out.

Room 5[edit]

Yet another ancient acceleration gate and you are greeted with the following:


Initial Defenders
4 x (Frigate) Hunter/Sunder/Silverfish Alvi
1 x (Frigate) Strain Render Alvi
3 x (Cruiser) Disintegrator Alvum
5 x (Battlecruiser) Crippler/Enforcer Alvatis
1 x (Sentry) Swarm Defense Battery ( Drops 13th Tier Overseer's Personal Effects)

Another reasonably tough overseer will this time drop you a set of 14th tier effects.

Room 6[edit]

An imaginatively named ancient acceleration gate drops you into this room.


9 x (Frigate) Hunter/Raider/Sunder/Silverfish Alvi
2 x (Frigate) Strain Infestor Alvi (Stasis Webifier)
5 x (Battlecruiser) Crippler Alvatis
4 x (Sentry) Drone Point Defense Battery
4 x (Sentry) Drone Heavy Missile Battery
2 x (Battleship) Alvus Controller
1 x (Battleship) Supreme Hive Defender (Drops 14th Tier Overseer Personal Effects)

Nothing much challenging but the suggestion that you are at the last gate makes a rallying call before you head on to the climax of the complex in the final room.

Room 7 - Boss fight[edit]


3 x (Frigate) Hunter/Raider Alvi
3 x (Frigate) Strain Splinter Alvi (Statis Webifier)
5 x (Cruiser) Bomber Alvum
8 x (Battlecruiser) Crippler/Defeater Alvatis
6 x (Battleship) Hive Defender
3 x (Sentry) Drone Cruise Missile Battery
1 x (Sentry) Drone Point Defense Battery
1 x (Sentry) Lesser Strain Mother (Statis Webifier 50km) (Drops 15th Tier Overseer's Personal Effects)

The Lesser Strain Mother has modest shield and armour which it repairs very fast. Its main defence, however, is the vast number of structure hit points you have to nibble away at (while keeping a careful eye on local, mind you).
