This Eve Online guide will cover the agent mission entitled Cargo Delivery (Blood Raiders – level 1). This is a Deadspace encounter type mission, where the player will be facing the Blood Raiders pirate faction (Amarr ships) and it would be ideal to both protect, and maximize damage in the areas of kinetic and thermal.
Upon requesting this mission I am presented with the following speech from my agent Aatvi Nupiroda (Command Division) “I need a shipment of Synthetic Oil delivered to this station as soon as possible. It’s currently stored in one of our warehouses in Tunttaras; I’ll give you the coordinates, of course. Just warp to our outpost, navigate to the warehouse, and pick up the shipment, and then return it to Niyabainen IX – Moon 21 – Hyasyoda Corporation Mining Outpost. Simple, ain’t it? Just make sure you keep a lookout for any suspicious activity. You can’t be too careful these days.” The items marked in bold will change depending on where the mission is performed in the eve universe.
The objectives of this mission are to fly out to a floating warehouse in space and retrieve one unit of Crates Of Synthetic Oil (60.0 m³), then return this item to my agent to complete the mission and earn the following rewards; 29,000 credits, 17 loyalty points and 30,000 bonus credits for completing this mission in under 1 hour and 49 minutes.
I will be using my Merlin for this mission, hitting the undock button I warp to 0 to the jump gate needed to take me to the neighboring system Tunttaras where this mission takes place. Warping to the encounter lands me in a large outpost with many refining type structures, warehouses and towers, devoid of any ships. There is an interconnected series of asteroids with pipes holding them together, as well as having many structures built into the surface. As soon as my ship has approached to within 15 kilometers of the warehouse I need to retrieve the mission objective from, a wave of 8 Blood Raider frigates. Quickly with my afterburners on, I loot the cargo before engaging the pirates, completing the mission’s objective; however, I want some bounty to, so let’s exterminate these guys.
Engaging the first wave is a bit rough, most of the frigates in these waves being slightly tougher varieties (Corpii Herald and Upholder mix), eventually forcing me to jump out to the nearest station to recharge my shields due to the combined force of the pirates. I warp back to the encounter with my ships strength rejuvenated, using my webifiers to slow the enemies down before targeting them with my railguns, allowing them to hit for higher damage. Missile salvos in unison knock out large chunks of health, allowing me to finish of the first wave. Finishing the very last enemy causes a new wave of 9 frigates to show up, with 8 of them being weaker frigates (Corpii Worshipper) than the first wave except for the additional one, that is a special character named Kazem Tatha. The total bounty awarded to me for cleaning out the area totals 78,375 Isk.
Returning to Niyabainen IX – Moon 21 – Hyasyoda Corporation Mining Outpost allows me to turn my mission in to Aatvi Nupiroda completing the mission Cargo Delivery (Blood Raiders – Level 1)
