I have finished a few Amarr Resource war sites. I picked them since Blood Raiders seemed like the hardest NPC to deal with (em and therm damage vs shields). The Venture I used was cap stable, had 66% em resist, 64% therm resist and shield boosted for 17.5 hp / second with full T2 equipment.
The 4 Limited (level 1) sites I tried I could solo without problems. I used my drones to fight the NPC’s in the first three sites, but the frigates are tough and fast (1450m/s) so I never managed to kill one. In the last site I didn’t use drones at all. The payout was a puny 3, 5, 5 and 5 ISK.
The Minor (level 2) site was a lot tougher. I failed my first two sites, but didn’t loose my ship. The third attempt succeeded, but I had to warp out twice to loose aggro, because the three NPC cruisers in there can easily take me into hull if I sit still. The payout was… nothing, not even a 0 isk notification.
In total, after finishing 5 sites (4 limited, 1 minor), I have been rewarded 4 times for a total of 18 LP and 18 ISK. I never managed to kill any NPC’s, and in the Limted sites I recieved the same reward regardless if I used my drones or not.
My standing was increased 5 times (from earliest to latest increase: +0.167, +0.17, +0.174, +0.177 and +0.181). The type of site don’t seem to impact the standing gain, and I seem to gain more as my standing go up, which is unusual (I double checked the time of each increase, I have listed them in the right order).
So far I like this, but I have only scratched the surface of it. It’s different than other PvE, but I consider that a good thing. It is perhaps a bit on the hard side, not exactly newbie friendly, since a certain amount of fitting and NPC damage type knowledge is required to survive.
Edit: Two more minor things. Each roid seems to have 100m3-ish of ore, and the ore vanishes from cargo when warping out of the site. Normal belt rats will also spawn in these sites, and some of them use ewar (I had TD from sanshas on me).
