So I’m minding my own business mining in hi sec in an edencom system. I fly over to a second asteroid field and notice that there are a lot of Red Gurista Ventures. I have not seen that in hi sec.
Right after I noticed those, I saw a bunch of red Gurista kestrels and production condors. Never seen Production Condors either.
So I fly back to base in my retriever and pull out the caracal. She never fails to get the job done. I fly back to the spot and target a production condor.
She is fast. Much faster than me. Pretty soon I’m warped scrambled. It doesn’t seem to matter to me though because I know I can destroy this Condor pretty quickly. But I can’t. My missiles are only barely hurting her. Taking away maybe one fiftieth of her Shield every time they hit. But her missiles are taking away like 1/5 of mine. I cannot get out of there. So the caracal is destroyed.
What is she doing in highsec not in a pocket, just in a regular asteroid field? What are these Gurista Ventures and what the heck is a Production condor? Apparently a very powerful ship.
I’m not sure if it’s safe to fly my retriever to that field anymore. I might have to go to a different system but I’ve been mining for a long time, maybe every single day for a year, and I must say I haven’t seen these Gurista ventures or production condors. I definitely cannot fight them with my mining ships, or even with my regular fighting ships. Not much of a fighter though, but I have played this game for a while.
If these powerful ships are going to be in regular hi sec asteroid fields, that’s going to screw everything up for me.
