Recently i ran lots of these 2 anomalies, because i read, these can escalate to a guristas scout outpost.

Faction spawns sometimes appear, but no escalation. I ran maybe 50-60 of these, but no luck.

Is it true, that these anomalies can escalate till this day, is it worth trying?

Thanks in advance!

The Hideaway and Burrow anomaly's are quick and easy to complete with a good chance of Commander NPC and or escalation spawning.

You'll probably get a Commander NPC spawning more than gaining an escalation from those.

I don't know about the Guristas but the Sansha and Serpentis high sec anomaly's have both Commander NPC spawn and or escalation. Angel high sec anomaly's don't have an escalation, only a Commander NPC spawn.

What about the Bloods? Burrow, hideout, hideaway, refuge? thanks

As for the Blood Raiders high sec anomaly's, I don't know. I guess they're the same as the other ones (Angel excluded).

I still stand by the statement that the Hideaway and Burrow anomaly sites are worth the time to complete since those can be completed very quickly and have a good chance to spawn Commander NPC's and or escalate to expedition.

Also the 'Hideout' site is a Cosmic Signature which is a different subject. All combat signatures are definitely worth the time to complete.

Thank you for the answer DeMichael!

I'm also waiting for others experiences as well btw.

I've ran mostly Gurista Sites/Anomalies before moving to Minmatar Space just a couple of days ago. While it is possible to get an escalation to Guristas Scout Outpost, I wouldn't count on it. Most times you can be happy with getting a Dread Guristas something, and even that doesn't happen on a regular basis. Still worth trying in my opinion, as you will get a Scout Outpost all for yourself (except ninjas), and won't have to rush it in case someone else drops by and steals your goodies. But bring lots of time in any case if you try to get it just with refugees/hideaways.

I run everything I find if I can, even the crappy ones in hi-sec. Each anom has a small chance of an escalation and/or faction spawn which makes it worth the few minutes it takes to run most of the 'poor' ones. I'll usually scan through my resident area (10 systems, 0.1 sec to 0.5), run the juicy ones straight away and then go back and clean up everything else. I usually end-up with at least 1 escalation to do. The rate seems to be about 5% (1 in 20), but I can go several sessions without then get several in a row.

I work like this regardless of what region I'm currently in. I'm not bothered about maxing out my income, so am sure some wallet e-peener will rant about how it isn't efficient...
