"Meet up with the pirate at the repair outpost. Follow his instructions then report back to your agent."

Enemies (Caldari)

  • Group 1: 1 x Asan Ikkaa

Total Bounty: 7,875 Isk


Mission 5 in the Military career arc isn't so much a combat mission as it is one that tries to introduce you to additional possibilities when it comes to performing missions—specifically, who you are doing them for. You won't need anything special for this mission, so just grab the combat ship you have been using thus far and warp out to the encounter bookmark with it.

Once you arrive at the encounter, you will receive a prompt window from the pirate you are to meet up with. The message essentially explains how players, if they so choose, can work for the pirate factions as opposed to the empire ones—or do both, even, if they can manage their standings right. While pursuing pirate agents and completing their missions are often more profitable than their empire counterparts, you can only ever find these agents in low and null security systems, making just operating in the space they exist in to be dangerous and ill-advised early in the game.

For now, your only real task left here is to take out the pirate who orbits in space. Generally, this ship takes so long to respond to your attacks that it is entirely possible to kill it outright before it even fires upon you. All that's left after is to collect your mission rewards.

By this point in the career arc, you should be well set up for these general combat missions that are no different from the previous ones, just progressively more advanced and with more enemies. In the case of mission 6 of Cash Flow for Capsuleers, there will be a couple rooms separated by acceleration gates.

After passing through the entry acceleration gate that takes you into the first room of the mission, you will be taken to an area of space where you are in the middle of a box-like structure formed by many smaller buildings. You can engage enemies here at will without much fear of reprise considering this room's weak nature, but they all have to be cleared before proceeding through the next gate. Groups 1 & 2 as listed above start spawned in this room and aggro you as you enter.

The next room is the final one for this mission, and it contains Tahamar's Outpost, which is your objective here. It can be destroyed pretty easily; however, it will spawn a pair of weak pirate ships and a pair of significantly more dangerous sentry turrets.

These turrets should be your primary target as soon as they spawn. Make sure to have all your weapons focus fire on one at a time as they can not only do some serious damage to you, but also can take a bit of a beating before popping themselves. If you have your afterburner equipped, now would be an excellent time to activate it and pull into a close orbit around the turrets to give them a harder time tracking you. Once those turrets are dealt with, the 2 pirate ships should be easily plowed, leaving this mission completed.

On a final note, the computer may give you a warning about leaving alone the contraband that can potentially drop out of the outpost. In most cases, I have not found anything illegal from the drops here myself, but even if there is, you can easily loot it, then dock with a station within the solar system by warping to 0 and docking quickly to avoid any ramifications. In general, the difficulty and chances of getting caught with them occurs at stargates, where the empire ships routinely scan you and will fine your character if such items are found. So just don't try to move them between systems until you've taken the time to learn more about proper smuggling.

      "rooms"?!? In space? So, I kill groups 1&2--now what? Where do I go? How will I know it? What will I see? Where is it? Why are people so afraid of helping out?

      Didn't notice the giant asteroid field there in a beginner system which makes it a miners dream. Ganking is deemed a banable offense in beginner systems. The mission doesn't have a timer so as long as you don't complete it you can mine free of worry. The belt regenerates after downtime. I think the ore total is like 140mil. Ideal for mining corporations. Pagiocase, Pyroxeres, Veldspar, and sometimes scordite (depending on where you are).

      The basic idea for mining corporations is that everyone in the corp helps mine the belts once a day once per member. 10 members is 1.4billion isk per day multiply by 365 (if you no life it) which equals roughly 511 billion isk. 451 billion if you buy everyone's plex for the year. 451 billion is equivalent to 18,000 Us dollars. (Conditions for calculation: $20 a plex 1plex=500,000,000 isk, 2 plex $40 Us or 1bil isk, 40*450=$18,000) 45bil per person even split.
