So here I am at the Bug Killer.

Greetings,

It is a crashed Anaconda at HIP 16613 A 1 after taking on the Thargoids and losing. There is no security force to help you out. Three Comm Links at the Anaconda and one more with an SRV 4.9 KM away ~260 degrees so if one ever comes here again they will be listed in the Nav panel. That is the game part of ED.. So at the Anaconda I'm blowing up cargo racks. There are three. They often provide Tellurium, Ruthenium and Antimony. There are easier ways to obtain these but it is worth to visit the site for the immersion.

Then a large Thargoid ship shows up scanning the area. Running around in an SRV they didn't bother me. So I went back to the parked Kraft Mk II and they didn't bother me either versus shutting down systems when meeting in space. I even fired on them in my SRV but they totally ignored me. As this system is 40LY from Maia going for G5 Thrusters with effects one might want to play with it. Some might want to take a dedicated Thargoid killer ship depending upon their abilities. It seems that new players and experienced ones can both have fun with this site.

Regards

I did shoot that Cyclops down last thing before taking off for DW2 :D
Since this is above a ground surface, they don't deploy the thargon swarms until they reach a certain altitude (the one didn't deploy until he was already down to the last heart) so this is a perfect site for training new pilots to fight them.

Oh, so you can fight it? I assumed it's like a scripted event, simply a show.
In one of the mats gathering sessions i went to check the nearby wrecked srv (to complete the story) and the Tharg popped in again and, to my surprise, it actually beamed up the escape pod that was laying nearby srv. I thought it was a really nice show.
 
Guys, logged in just to comment on this. Its not a joke!

I returned in the game after many years and these days been stockpiling stuff. Unlocking guardian stuff, engineers etc.
SO, i google, people say go there, good mats. Alright i say, lets go. So landed, got srv out, saw the area, got few mats, logged off.

After a while i logged in again and went to feed the cats.
Was hearing some noises but didnt pay attention. Was only away for a minute, came back in my SRV watching this big Thargoid, blowing up my ship shields.
After 2 seconds of ugh! i logged off again. (insta-panic reaction). fingers crossed. lots of stuff in my conda.

Apparently those thargoids attack anything guardian related, and had guardian loot in my cargo. I also have a guardian fsd boost onboard.
I really hope i'll find my ship when i log in now. My plan is to get in my ship fast. Jettison all guardian related stuff, power down guardian fsd(just in case) and pray?


*update.#1
After logging in, thargoid was not there, my conda was at 75% hull. Got in, abandoned cargo and even moved it far away to play innocent, in case them uglies come again.
Will update if they come attacking my ship again cause of the guardian FSD(got it powered down now) If i dont update, i was not attacked anymore.

Stay safe commanders

They only care about the cargo, not the modules.

Yeah, fun to watch if you are on the safe side. I noticed they appear if you log off in the site, bit further away and they didnt appear. And they didnt attack after that, they didnt even care for the guardian cargo 500m away

For some reason they only appear after re-log. Most of the time it's two of them, a Medusa and a Cyclops (which spawns over at the crashed SRV).
