I found my first, second and third Blood Raider Gauntlet sites this evening.
The first was while I was in that unarmed Interceptor – so had to ignore it.
The second was after I Jumped-Cloned back to my home base and went looking for them in my Gila. I searched through 15 odd systems before finding it. There was a Confessor already running the site when I warped in. I was content just to sit back and watch what it was all about – but the pilot warped out. I started clearing the remaining rats when another Confessor warped in, then out again, followed by yet another Confessor. When the last rat was cleared that Confessor used the sites acceleration gate. I followed to witness it destroy two rats before warping off. I cleared the remaining rats and structures but didn’t notice any loot.
I found the third site after flying back to my home system to park the Gila – but with only 30 seconds left before downtime.
I ran that third site when tranquility came back online.
For the two Hi-Sec sites I looked at, you warp to the beacon to find a handful of structures and an acceleration gate around 15km away from you. There are 5 Blood Raider Gauntlet Frigates (worth 30K each) in the site which web you. As you clear the spawn another 5 turn up, then another 5 when those are cleared. (A total of 15.) I cleared all the NPCs and Structures I could damage, but nothing was dropped.
The acceleration gate seems to be locked until all the NPCs are destroyed. Behind the acceleration gate is a pocket with 5 Blood Raider Gauntlet Cruisers and a Battlecruiser. Once destroyed a further 5 Cruisers turned up. I cleared all the NPCs and Structures I could damage, but again nothing was dropped.
I figured it must have been the luck of the draw but I then noticed I had one of those Abaddon Blood Raiders Skins in my cargo hold. I am guessing it probably “appeared” after the battlecruiser kill, or after I destroyed one of the structures. I’m not sure as I wasn’t expecting to gain loot like that.
The Gila had no issues with tanking or quickly removing the rats. The Confessors were certainly destroying the rats even quicker – so they don’t appear to have high resists or a lot of EHP. Their damage however might possibly worry a Confessor or Assault Frigate. I was probably taking around 300 Hits inbetween my Medium Drone Strikes.
Initial reports suggest the sites tend to be heavily contested. That seems accurate at the moment.
