Anomic mission is broken

I just lost a T2 fit Hawk in an anomic mission. I gave up. CPP has juiced this guy to prevent multiple ships being involved. I have 2 alts with V skills flyiing Iskurs. I warped all three brawler fit ships into the pockert. Bogey was ~35k away. I engaged the microwarps and headed towards him. He jumped to 55k instantl Ok. microjump drive. I attempted to close with him and I couldn’t get within 10k. I jumped all 3 out caught him when he was swarmed with drones. 10 Hobgoblin II’s didnt even dent him. I refit for distance. Light missile II’s with Fury ammo and Hybrid Cladari tungsten charges gave me the range to hit him. I orbited him for about 5’minutes. No freaking damage. None. I was getting low on booster charges so I jumped the Injure and the Hawk are it. WTF CCP? I just got my accounts out of mothbaalls and you pull this? I think I want my money back. I fully expect this to be deleted.

All the Burner missions are Op and require very specific ships, skillset and/or implants and boosters. As an example, you can beat all anomic missions with a unified Nergal (module swaps), all anomic team missions with a Nergal (set fit) and the anomic base missions with a specific a specific cruiser or battlecruiser fit. Even still, you will occasionally lose a ship to random bad luck (wrecking shot, disconnect, etc.)

There’s a guide and numerous threads dedicated to burner missions, fits, etc.


That’s wrong. 3 V skilled Assault Frigates should have melted him. NO DAMAGE.

Burners have been this way for the better part of… quite a long time now (close to a decade). Which burner mission was it?

He never got my shields below half and my Ishkurs stayed at 90% armor. The guy is juiced for multiple pilots.

Yeah, which mission was it?

Agent. In high sec with the Dramiel.

This guide is older, but a good starting point.

I don’t mind them being difficult to kill. But impossible is just flat out wrong.

You need very specific ships and/or fits. You can’t beat the Dramiel with a Hawk. A Nergal or a Daredevil, yes - but not a Hawk,

To even damage him? Are these multimillion dollar fits like for the Abyss? I ran T5 Darks 5 years ago. Now I read you need about 10 billion with implants and boosters. I see a lot of T2 ships running around. I guess CCP needed another ISK sink. Making a ship immune to damage for 5 minutes is cheating.

A1: The short answer is sometimes, yes (depending on the burner and your ship fit).
A2: Yes, you occasionally need to go a bit “blingier” on some of the fits (again, depends on your skills and the burner).
A3: No, you don’t need $10-billion+. I run a unified Nergal fit (one ship, no module switching) for all team burners and it works without full V skills, any implants or boosters. The ship+fit is around $315 million (and it only works for the team burners and nothing else).
A4: Burners pay out a lot more ISK/LP because they’re a unique challenge.

To conclude: Anomic missions not broken - working as intended/designed.


That’s you’re fanboy opinion. You obviously have reading comprehension challenges. If only w certain class of ship can damage them, that’s broken.

Can you run T5/T6 Abyss in any ship or fit you want? Nope. Burners are the same way. Working as intended. Long story short, you’re going to need a ~2 billion ISK Nergal fit.


No, it’s stated fact. Read any of the literature/documentation (including from CCP) and you’ll find that these type of missions were specifically designed this way, ie: challenging.

The person lacking reading comprehension here is you. I’m telling you what they require and you’re arguing that that isn’t right or so. Fine - take it up with the powers that be (I didn’t design it).

Burner missions are optional and there’s no penalty to decline or even fail them.


dude … youre some lerning resistance or something ?
he gave you the answer more then once … and you still complaining its impossible ? xD then tell me … why i´m able to clear all anomic missions with ships below 1b ? wanna call me a cheater ? wanna call me a liar ?

these missions are absolutley fine ! lern about their strenghs and weaknes and you will see the way to kill them by yourself !

All anomic burner need very specific fit, or multiboxing 2~3 daredevil (web bonus) with a kirin, or a nergal.
For the dramiel its signature is very small (<10meter) that’s why you struggled I guess. I use this fit for dramiel, it takes 2 or 3 clip to get it I use pricy ammo when he’s in armor/structure. You can either use abyssal mutaplasmoid to make it fit or implants or bling it more or less (a meta “crosslink ballistic compact control system” works too but it’ll mean 1 more clip to kill it).

Was this your first burner.?

So I just did it with the fit I shared, if it wasn’t clear you need to consume the crash booster.
You need to keep at range (100km w/e) so that the gun hits once every full moon since any dps help.
I did it without Dread Guristas Mjolnir Rocket but it was very slow , I lost count to how many clip I used but since you can tank it forever there’s no issue but time.
The rep can be downgraded I think but it’s cheap .

Also, the daredevil in hatelessgaming guides work faster but at a different cost
