I actually stopped believing that there are any faction ships/drops worth mentioning when doing lvl 4 missions after I didn't get anything worth more than 1m (some lvl 3 mission) for about 3 years.

Yesterday, I was offered the 'Covering your tracks' lvl 4 mission by a storyline agent. Knowing about the rumors of a possible faction drop, I thought I would do it and have a look (I just was away for a month, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered).

The named NPC in that mission (Raten Niaga or smth in my case) actually dropped a Dread Guristas BCS, which was the first faction drop worth mentioning I ever got in a lvl 4 mission.

Yay so it is true \o/

I don't believe I ever got more than tags 'n ammo in all the years I did level 4's...

In less than a month of exploration, I've had (Faction), um...
3 Shield boosters,
3 passive shield resists,
4 LG Implants,
1 DG HML
Oh... and one Shield Transporter...

Now... do you think I want to go back to running missions?

he said missions, you said exploration.

If I had done 3 years of missioning I'd have lost the will to live.

faction spawns in nullsec apear aproximately every 40 belt clears (clearing the spawn compeltely from a belt) officer spawns are roughly every 40 faction spawns. so as you can see, the probability of getting an officer spawn is extremely low.

also officers do not always drop good stuff, sometimes they can be just as crap as faction spawns.

Can't recall if I have ever gotten anything more than tags and ammo from the faction missions spawns, even in all my time I've been here.

As for exploration though... Last night I managed to grab a Pithum C-Type Med Shield Booster, so I guess that's not all that bad. Neutral

I was flying around doing L1 missions for Amaar and I checked out a "Disturbance" site. At the site there was a 480,000 bounty Sansa BS called "Beast".

It dropped a True Sansa engergized plate and I was sooo excited. I checked contracts and it was worth like 1 mil....... Right after I saw it was basically worthless, my salvager finished sucessfully and gave me a "Intact Plate" which was worth 28mil.

I was busy chasing wartargets around some .8 system when I noticed something I'd only ever seen once before...an officer frigate wreck (no, not the super-rare officer kind). Unlooted. I figured some Hulk had gone AFK and killed it, and when the owner had some back he hadn't noticed.

Low-Grade Slave Alpha for the win. YARRRR!!

I've gotten two in the last week. Both from the overseer in the second rooms of Serpentis\Guristas Worlds Collide. First time it was the 6Million isk bounty version and I got a Shadow Serpentis Large Armor Repairer, second was the lame 800k version and got some faction ammo and a tag.

I've seen some in the bonus room of AE also.

I was mining a few months back and a dread guristas rat showed up...lol. My drones popped him and when i flew over with my industrial alt I picked up a dread guristas balistic shield hardener. Not too bad of a pick up while mining.Laughing

My dream catch happened yesterday. For the first time in over 2 years of missioning, I got a True Sansha spawn in the Blockade. This is what I got:

1. 4,8 mil bounty.
2. True Sansha large neut.
3. True Sansha armor kinetic hardener.
4. a T2 salvage armor plate worth 25 mil.

Done 10+ overseers on Guristas/Serpentis Worlds Collide in the last week, only thing of note was 16m of salvage from a 4.25m Serpentis Overseer, next highest bounty was 1.05m or so and gave nothing of worth.

Yesterday I decided to buy a Breacher and kill hisec rats with it, being so incredibly bored that this actually seemed fun. Eventually I found a wreck named "True Sansha Blahblahblah" and it had a faction small crystal inside. Since I didn't know that hisec even gave faction spawns, having been coddled up in null since the word go, this was immensely surprising to me and I felt like I had accomplished something for a minute or so.

Hisec anomalies spawn faction frigates every 40-50 anoms in my experience (forget the drone ones ofc). If I'm out looking for combat sites I always do anoms while I'm scanning because they take maybe 2 minutes in an Ishtar. LG implants are fairly common, and last month I picked up two LG Snake Omegas and sold them for 450mill each.
Same anomalies also occasionally give 3/10 or even 4/10 escalations.

Unfortunately there are a LOT of ex-missioners in hisec exploration now. But there are still pockets of comparatively quiet space where you can pick up a hefty number of faction items a day ugh

Was running an 0.4 in my Arbitrator, got a Ferox on scan and narrowed it to a belt!

I hit warp and when I arrive no Ferox but a Dread Gurista spawn, Low Grade Crystal, Tag and 1000 DG Rockets!Cool

There was a week when I found 4/10 high sec complexes three days in a row and each time got 150mil+ from them. (C-Type EANM of some sort each time.) I haven't been playing my exploration alt as much recently though and my main is sitting in station with 1.1b ISK waiting to have the skills to fly something more expensive than a Drake lol.
