Once you hit the Animated Extraction Rig, be prepared for a reasonable length grind if you're around level 50. I did this the first time as a level 53 hunter and found it difficult.

The basic mechanic is that you need to press three Levers around the Rig to drop the shield on the Core. Once the shield is down, you can blast away at the core, reducing the health bar at the top of your screen.

Meanwhile, on the rig you will face:
* Riftshells that spawn foes like Spiders, Inkcutters and others,
* Drop in Dirigible and Cutter foes, and
* Several bosses.

These foes will get stronger, the more you destroy the Rig.

I didn't drop the shield unless I was alone on the Rig, so I could spam the Core with minimal distractions, which Katarina and my Chimera could keep at bay for the 30-odd seconds the shield is down. So make sure you are alone on the rig each time you pull that third lever to drop the shield.

The way I succeeded was to be methodical and to take out the Riftshells as early as you can - and be aware they will respawn over time. Keeping the Riftshells down limits the swarms of monsters that will distract you.

You should take out bosses and the dropins whenever you can, but keep one eye on the health bar of the Rig. If it starts to go back up it means you have the Dirigible healers on the core (they seemed to have a circular sigil on the ground underneath them which helps identify them), and they need to be taken out ASAP. They can provide a lot of health back to the Core and make your grind even longer.

In the chaos that is this level the bosses will drop some loot, and the enemies will drop plenty of potions. So, when Prisoner Seven says "Time to go" at the end, hang back to make sure that you collect all the goodies.

Pull two of the levers while clearing the Rig (prioritise Riftshells, the Dirigible healers, then the rest), when clear pull the third and smash the Core as hard as you can.
