Overview

Cash Flow for Capsuleers 7 takes the mission chain back to the basic combat mission type, where you'll be warping into a pocket of space without gates, fighting a series of waves of enemy ships. In this part of the arc, you will see a step up int he quality of enemies, with ships that can hit you for more damage and get within range quicker than before. Fitting the armor repairer you are granted in this mission to your ship helps serve as a bit of an emergency boost if for some reason your shields are broken as well as saving you money from repairing armor damage you may take, at the station's repair shop.

When you arrive at the mission location you will be presented with the Giant Snake Shaped Asteroid, a large lattice like rock structure that occupies most of the area, with some ruined starbase bits within and around it. Your first wave of enemies, Group 1, will be found orbiting an asteroid to your left as you warp in, about 25km out. Start shooting at them to get this mission underway.

The one somewhat hidden lesson in this mission is the managing of enemy spawns by selecting your targets. As you can see above in the list of waves and what triggers each, generally only 1 copy of the trigger ship type for the next wave will spawn, although occasionally there can be multiple. By carefully choosing the order in which you take out your targets, you can effectively manage how many ships you are in combat with at once, thus increasing your odds of surviving more difficult encounters. When working with gangs or fleets on high end missions, it also helps for other players to prepare themselves, since there may be a role system set up, ie; logistics, tank, dps, etc.

Rewards:

  • + 0.2706 % corporation standing
  • 1 x Small Armor Repairer I (granted)
  • 137,000 Isk
  • 144,000 Isk bonus (2 hours, 28 mins)

"Fly to the hotel your agent mentioned, and retrieve the VIPs. If something is amiss, then report to your agent with the details."

Overview

In the eight part of the Military Career arc of Eve Online you will be reintroduced to one of the previous mission mechanics with a new twist. The concept of hazards and traps in missions. Before you launch for this mission, make sure you have that armor repairer from the previous mission, since it will be more necessary here.

Back in the fourth mission, you dealt with the stargate which released the toxic clouds that dealt damage over time. In this case, the hotel you have to approach for the objective of this mission, has a smartbomb attached to it which deals 400 damage in one heavy burst when you get close enough to complete the objective. Since you cannot complete the mission without approaching the hotel, there is no real way to avoid this.

Another difference from the last time you ran into a trap, is that this time enemies will spawn afterwards, attempting to take advantage of your weakened state. You can optionally warp out if you would like and just turn in the mission without fighting them, dock and recharge before coming back for vengeance or optionally sticking through to duke it out regardless, where the armor repairer can come in handy. This mission is probably the most likely so far to lead to a loss of your ship if unprepared here.

Once you eliminate the one group that spawns there is nothing left for you here. Once the mission is turned in and rewards claimed, the Overdrive Injectors can be fitted to your ship to help boost it's base speed, making you faster and harder to hit even before activating afterburners.

Rewards:

  • + 0.2355 % corporation standing
  • 1 x Weapon Upgrades (skill book, granted)
  • 2 x Overdrive Injector System I
  • 120,000 Isk bonus (2 hours, 8 mins)
