I have been fairly prolific with my High-Sec exploration roams and have run Cosmic Anomalies and DED Sites for almost all the Pirate Factions and Rogue Drones. There are two factions remaining that I’ve not run sites for yet, Guristas Pirates and Sleeper Drones.

I’m not in any big rush to experience Sleeper Drones but sometime in the next few days I’ll be heading out in search of some Guristas Pirates and see how their sites stack up to the others.

Doing some ‘homework’ on the Guristas and getting my route planned out on DOTLAN EveMaps – we’ll see how this goes…

I’m taking full advantage of this time with no Wardecs and am hammering some High-Sec exploration.

For the past couple of days I’ve been hitting Systems in Serpentis Regions hard and while I’ve been doing well with the Bounties and with scanning down some Cosmic Signatures the main thing I’ve noticed is that I’ve received ZERO escalations and only one Faction Commander Spawn from all of the Serpentis Burrows, Refuges and Dens that I’ve run – and I’ve run a bunch of them!

When I was running the Angel and Sansha Anoms I would get, at minimum, one escalation per exploration roam and Faction Commander Rats while not super frequent would spawn on average about one per ten sites that were run. Not sure if it’s just totally random and I’ve not been getting the random ‘luck’ or if different Factions have different chances for escalations/Commander Spawns?

I did have some ‘luck’ last night scanning down DED Sites and ran two DED-3/10 Rogue Drone Asteroid Infestation, two DED-3/10 Serpentis Narcotic Warehouses and a DED-4/10 Serpentis Phi-Outpost. No BPC drops but I did finish the roam up with a number of faction and deadspace modules.

Will keep at it and see how the ‘luck’/randomness plays out…

Well… some ships are now sitting in the hangar of the Alliances’ FOB but I didn’t spend much time there this weekend. What time I did spend in New Eden was productive in other ways. Spent one evening helping one of the newer Corp mates grind some SOE standing to work towards getting him into Jump Clones and we did good work, he’s almost there. Also spent a fair amount of time running Cosmic Anomalies and doing some High-Sec exploration. Ran sites mainly in Angel and Sansha space but late this weekend I ventured into a Serpentis Region and was struck with a new goal – run the Serpentis sites until I score a Daredevil and/or Vigilant BPC.

We’ll see how long this takes?!

Had a few good exploration finds over the weekend…

Scanned down and jumped into a Class 2 Wormhole from the home system. I always get a little rush jumping into the unknown of W-Space, you just never know what you’re going to find and this one was untouched. When I’m hunting/exploring in W-Space I make it a point to at least identify all the Cosmic Signatures in the System I’m working and this C-2 had a ton! There had to have been at least twenty Signatures to scan down and I can’t remember what they all were but I did pinpoint ten hackable exploration sites, six Relic and four Data.

I had jumped in flying the Hunting Hound hoping I might find something to shoot but no joy – it was a small System and all I could see on the D-Scan were some Control Towers, there was not one ship in system. The first thing I do anytime I jump into a Wormhole is bookmark my exit and after scanning down all the Sigs and bookmarking all the hackable sites I warped back to it, jumped out, re-shipped into my Cheetah and headed back in.

I managed to hack all but two of the cans (two Data site cans) and ended up with a little over $175 million ISK in the hold and found a  3-run Dark Blood Large Beam Laser Battery BPC – not one of the epic BPC’s but it’s the first Faction BPC I’ve found and it got me pretty excited!

I also stumbled upon my first few Drone Data Sites and scored a number of ‘Augmented’ & ‘Integrated’ Drone BPC’s.

Other than making ISK one of the goals with my exploration is to scan down Null-Sec Relic Sites for each of the Pirate Factions:

Angel Cartel
Blood Raiders
Guristas Pirates
Sansha’s Nation
Serpentis

I’ve managed to complete three of the five off that list and will be making some long trips in the near future to complete the other two. I have also spent some time in the Null-Sec Rogue Drone regions searching for sites but have had no luck finding any yet. I’m using DOTLAN EveMaps as my main source of information during my exploration travels.

Once Phoebe rolls out I will add another secondary goal to “venture forth into the deeper, darker unknown” of the Wormhole Class 1, 2 and 3 systems.

I’ve got a ways to go with my skills before I will try to attempt any Sleeper sites.
