Egg hunt

Guristas hunt

Colorful Guristas capsuleers spawned all around New Eden. These capsules were located on random celestials such as planets, moons, asteroid belts and stars.

When killed, the capsule dropped a Hunt Acceleration Gate Key and occasionally DED Informant's Frozen Corpse.

The key was needed for accessing the final room in event sites.

Guristas Hunt Outpost

Eve Online The Hunt Sites

Guristas Hunt Outpost sites appeared everywhere in New Eden. The site appeared as a combat anomaly in the probe scanner window. Once warp to the site is initiated the site will also appear as a beacon on the overview revealing to everyone that someone has warped to it.

Only T1, T2, and faction frigates and destroyers can enter the site.

The site consisted of two deadspace pockets behind acceleration gates.

The first room had five waves of frigates, destroyers and the occasional cruiser. Once all waves are dead, the acceleration gate to last room becomes active. Sometimes the acceleration gate becomes active before the last wave.

Accessing the final room requires a Hunt Acceleration Gate Key. The gate does not stay open for other people for 10 seconds after activation like other locked gates do so everyone who wants to enter the final room needs their own key.

The final room has single Guristas Automated VHF drone, VHF-21 (Kinetic/Thermal + Alpha Explosive) or VHF-08 (Kinetic/Thermal + Alpha EM). This drone drops the valuable loot.

The site can be completed in a destroyer tanked against kinetic/thermal damage.

But take care, all frigates (except the Bantam) warp disrupt/scramble, web and neut, as will the Automated Drone in last room too. In first room, there's an npc that deals damage aside from kinetic and thermal. Hunt Griffin deals Explosive damage and ECM, Hunt Kestrel deals EM damages, Hunt Bantam has remote repair, Hunt Blackbird deals massive explosive damage and ECM, Hunt Caracal deals massive EM damage. The 'Hunt' rats have rather poor loot tables so don't bother looting.

Gurista Hunt Outpost

Guristas Huntmaster Outpost

Guristas Huntmaster Outpost was the harder event site that spawned only in Caldari low security space and in Venal. The site structure was identical to the Guristas Hunt Outpost but with a higher number of more powerful rats.

Rewards

In addition to the same rewards as the easier Hunt Outpost, the Huntmaster Outpost had a chance to drop Guristas Hydra implants.

First up for the Eclipse Quadrant will be the return of The Hunt on 6 April, a time of year when Capsuleers will undertake their now-annual egg hunt! Players will hunt down and scan capsules in order to gain access to special event sites, and potentially valuable drops. This will be an event with smaller ship classes like Frigates and Destroyers as the focus, so pilots with less experience and fewer skills trained can get involved. During The Hunt, player pods will have a chance of dropping their implants as loot when destroyed, so get podding!
