How to counter Abyssal hunters/gankers and move your stuff in high-sec safely

When you exit the Abyssal NOTHING can lock you or dmg you. You are 100% invincible for 1 whole minute and you can use this time to transfer your cargo then your ship and warp off with your pod after. Gankers cant even touch you in the whole process and cant do anything to nearly 500.000 ehp Orca.

Play the forum instead of the game.

Oopsie. I shared your secret.


You are only invulnerable if you don’t move. As soon as you start moving, you will lose the invulnerability.

I know. That is why I said use to orca mwd to move closer to the Gila…

The Gila does not move… only stand still and wait for orca to come within 2.500m and transfer everything including the ship

Fair enough. Seems I misread.

I already had some idea to somehow prevent ganking in my post

But i dont think CCP will add something like that.

or when you exit the abyssal the exit could be at a random location created upon exit so no one knows where you will exit in the system…

they will bump your ship out of orca range and you are done

we have tried it and Orca wins bumping race every time :slight_smile: you know how? I warp at 0 to the gila then :slight_smile: solved :slight_smile:

It wont work if they gonna bump your abyss running ship. you cant warp in to the scooping range anymore

the orca moves 583m/s with MWD… it can easily get within 2,500m from the Gila and transfer everything fast.

whats the point of transfering loot to the orca when in the time u transfer they will destroy u ?

I write down already that they cant target you for 1 min so you have time to transfer everything safely…

You can’t transfer anything while cloaked…

why are you talking non-sense? you are not cloaked when you exit the abyssal lol…

But it’s got the same timer as coming out of gate cloaked. If you move, you break it, correct?

I can go and do a site later to test. I never paid attention to this because I’m not concerned about being ganked. But I would assume that any sort of invulnerability timer prevents actions, or if actions are performed, breaks the timer, since that’s how it works elsewhere.

moving breaks the timer but transferring stuff doesn’t… and when your ship is in the cargo u just warp off the pod easy

Does it actually allow you to transfer while the timer is in effect? Have you tested? Because as far as I know, these invulnerability timers have the same limitation that cloaking does.

If it does allow transfer while the timer is in effect, that would be an oversight by CCP, I think.

its different from cloaking… I tested it and it does not break the timer when you transfer the cargo… after you transfer the ship itself the timer ends and you just simply warp off the pod…

Even if you are scrammed, you can still dump the ship into the bowhead - there was a big rage thread about it because PIRAT was using it to play station games on one of their citadels. It allowed them to dock up their expensive ships when they wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.
