Wacky AI (Part 1 of 2)

Faction: Rogue Drones
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace
Web/scramble: Yes
Damage dealt: Exp/Kin/Therm
Recommended damage dealing: EM/Therm
Minimum recommended ship class: Battleship, T3 Cruiser

Bring Item Objective: 
Item 20 x Small Sealed Cargo Containers (200.0 m³), Drop-off Location ZH3-BS

Destroy the drones guarding the storage bin, loot the sealed containers, and return them to Erakki Kihuo in one piece. Location −0,2 ZJ-QOO (Low Sec Warning!)

The mission is has acceleration gates and drops you right on top of a whole pile of drones. There are 2 scramming drones that you should kill right away. There are 9 Battleship class drones (5 Swarm Preserver Alvus, 4 Alvus Controller), a bunch of cruisers and frigates, and a lot of very fragile Kamikaze drones that damage your ship when you kill them:

'The Drone Kamakazi explodes, sending spurts of energy and debris in all directions. This was not a freak explosion, but a well prepared trap by the Drone Mother. Your ship takes damage!'

The battleships like to sit right on top of you dealing tough damage, but, if you can get range on them it's a lot easier to survive. I did this on a mid skilled alt using a drake I had sitting around - no t2 modules (except BCS).

When you approach the can another wave spawns - 4 BS, 3 Cruisers and about a dozen sentry guns. I made the mistake of doing this before I'd killed all the drones (I had 2 BS left)

'Someone has ventured close to the storage bin. As a result, rogue drones who had been dormant nearby rush into the area when the alarm is triggered. Hidden sentry guns come into view and arm their weapons. It's a trap!'

T3 cruisers will have no problem, although you might want to bring a friend
I got a 2.65 Corp standing gain from part 1

Wacky AI (Part 2 of 2)

Faction: Rogue Drones
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Deadspace
Web/scramble: Yes
Damage dealt: Exp/Kin/Therm
Recommended damage dealing: EM/Therm
Minimum recommended ship class: Battleship, T3 Cruiser
Extras: This site contains special ship restrictions.

Again it's a gated complex, first pocket has 5 BS, 6 Cruiser and 4 Frigate Drones, one of which is a scramming drone.

Second complex has a bunch of Cruisers, sentry guns and a 'Drone Creation Compound', shooting thie compound causes it to spawn many more cruisers when you hit structure.

'The Drone Mother has launched Kamikaze Drones from the Drone Creation Compound to defend itself! More drones have also joined the fray.'

After you shoot it some more (50% structure?) we get another spawn - 5 BS, 6 Cruiser and 4 Frigate with scrams. There's an Elite Drone parasite which switched targeting to my drones.

'Drones from other pockets of the deadspace complex have warped into the room to defend the Drone Mother!'

When you kill the cruisers in that wave you get a spawn of 5 frigates with a couple of scramming frigates in the wave
These are kamikazi drones and when killed they damage my ship and my drones. ( I lost my drones this way)

'The Drone Kamakazi explodes, sending spurts of energy and debris in all directions. This was not a freak explosion, but a well prepared trap by the Drone Mother. Your ship takes damage!'

As the last one explodes you get a 3 more scramming frigates spawning. Killing these has no nasty surprises.

No more spawns from shooting the Drone Creation Compound, but you do get this message:

'The Drone Compound starts spewing out clouds of radioactive gas once it's hull starts to disintegrate.'

When destroyed the drone creation compound drops a can, containing drone goo, an implant (something in the 75k LP range =130m+) and a Neurotoxin recovery skillbook. No other structures dropped cans. The mission is probably worth about 150million isk in terms of loot. But if it's not friendly space you're not doing it, and 29 jumps is a long way to go.
