As you can probably guess from the title, I got attacked while out mining today.
Remember: keep your drones out, memorise the commands to tell them what to do, and stay frosty.
I was in Ragnarg, near Hek, in a Venture, mining for Fiery Kernite and Golden Omber. I need Isogen for production, which I can’t get from highsec space, and I need lots of it, not just little amounts, hence me taking the risk. The system was fairly quiet - a couple of other people bobbed in, left fairly quickly, but most of the time it was just me.
Until a pair of destroyers under the control of the Angel Cartel warped in and tried to blow me to pieces.
Did I panic? Yes. Did I run? Considered it. Then I sicced my drones on the destroyers and flew around in circles to try and evade them shooting at me. Did I get blown up? …
Actually, no. Turns out they’re not so tough. Managed to take out both destroyers with a pair of Hobgoblin drones and I looted their charred corpses for everything I could find. I also got to use my salvager for the first time, yay!
Managed to make it back to Hek with a hold full of Kernite and Omber, which yielded a crapload of Isogen, plus plenty of Mexallon and Pyerite on the side. As a bonus, I now also have some Charred Power Circuits, which I should be able to jury-rig something out of.
