Ok i have scored this mission now thrice. Each time I clear everything even the stupid battlestation with a billion hp....and have not found a silver sansha tag.

Aggh so thrice now no bonus level.

Any idea where it drops in this mission or is a random drop from another sansha mission?

you may consider this the cheap way out, but I bought mine for 400k isk. I've gotten a +3 implant from the overseer's stash every single time I've been in (3, maybe 4 now). It was well worth the measly 400k :D

you might have to jump a ways to pick one up though. I guess I did get kinda lucky with mine. The cheapest I see currently is 2 mil. Even then it would've been worth it with the +3's I've looted. But I guess I should warn you, I have a friend who's looted nothing from the overseer's stash, and he's been in at least 3 times. 2 mil becomes more of a gamble at that point.

Good luck either way :)

Boy! Do I feel stupid!

I didn't even know there was a bonus stage for this mission and I've done it lots of times.

Is there a gate that you need the silver tag to activate? What's on the other side?

The best part about that particular gate is that it doesn't use up the tag. So once you have a tag, you can always get into the bonus level (unlike Angel Extravaganza).

The bonus level hasn't been much of a bonus for me. I've done it many times, but have yet to get anything from the Overseer's Stash. The only bonus for me has been the extra bounties and scrap loot.

It seems like tags don't drop as much as they used to, but they do still drop occasionally. So doing Sansha mission or ratting against Sanshas will eventually get you a Silver Tag. I think Silver drops from cruiser-size rats, but it might drop from frigate-size rats too. In either case, no where near as hard to get as Palladium tags for Angel Ex (battleship-size rats).

I've gotten a +3 from the overseer's stash every time I've done this one, the 3 utopia gardens also all give a nice little load of drugs too. The spawn here is nothing, just three BC and 4 frigs (demons or berserkers). The battlestation in the last regular room never drops anything, and it doesn't appear that the swarmers there respawn anymore either.

Don't forget that this one is not deadspace, so you can bookmark and warp right back to any pocket you want. I always come back to the bonus room with a pure DPS setup to take down those utopia gardens quick fast after killing the guards.

Didnt know it was a non-deadspace mission though, thanks for the tip.

In the last room with the battlestation there are two gates, one named 'Gate to the Front Lines' that takes you back to the first room of the mission, and one called 'Gate to the Overseer's Stash,' that takes you to the bonus room.

Hehe, you can do what I did and bookmark the final room, and then come back every day and pop pop pop, +3 implants + drugs...

Thanks all for the tips and advice got myself a tag off the market paid a 1.5 mill. but I suspect it will be worth it if the mission ever comes up again.

Boy! Now I feel dumber than ever!

Got this mission after I posted above (Massive attack, Sansha, 3 rooms, with a 4th small spawn of frigates at the warp in to the very first beacon, right?) Got to the last room, 3 blobs, no gates, no battlestation, just some asteroid station debris and veldspar asteroids.

Checked my overview settings and they were ok. What am I missing here?

That sounds more like the room before the battlestation.

Anyways, I bought the silver tag for 750k, which I've made back in bounties alone from the overseers stash guards, not to mention the 2 implants i've gotten from the stash itself.

Yes, but it's the final room of the regular mission. My journal says mission completed and there is nothing at all that I can see either in my overview or in space (no gates, no beacons) that would take me to the overseer's room.

What am I missing?

so wait a minute, you can farm the bonus room? Does the overseer's stash respawn or something?

I've only done the lvl 3 version, so I don't know if they're the same, but that still sounds kinda wierd. Forgive the dumb question, but you're sure it's massive attack you're doing, right? The huge battle station in the last room (the one where you have to kill the overseer) is flanked by the two gates mentioned previousely in the post. There's definately no blobs or asteroid station/asteroids in that last room.

This is the lvl 3 massive attack, against Sanshas. The lvl4 ironically, drops nowhere near as interesting stuff, has no "bonus room", and the enemies respawn way slower. Sad

I feel i should add that i have sone the lvl 3 no less than 1 times, probably more than that, and have never gotten a single thing from the stash in the last room..... Confused But apparently this is totally random, so i guess im just unlucky.

The silver tag ive got, i got from a mission rat in a lvl4 vs Sanshas nation...

Ah! Thanks! I've been doing the level 4. No wonder I can't seem to find the gate.

I'm disappointed about the lack of a bonus stage. Sad

But at least I no longer have to question my own intelligence. Wink

Respawns at DT every day, and since they arent accel gates you just pop right in.

They must have changed the bonus room. I did it tons of times pre-rev and never got a bit of loot.

I got Sansha silver tags running 3/10 Sansha complexes. On average, one dropped every two complexes I completed.
