Log entry 17-02-13
The week started poorly, on Monday hunting had still not recovered from Sunday. I was trying a few Allo and Esto when I got a call from an old friend from EUC one Una Griph Alconbury asking me if I would like to do the Daikiba wave event near to Odysseus Landing. It had been a while since I had done it and had not seen Una for a while either so I headed for the TP and then to the Wave Event area by air.
The event started slowly, I was massively overprotected at the start as I had put on the ghost armour but we worked our way through the first couple of waves. Una had also invited slartybartfass slarty bummel and James Dont GiveUp so this turned into quite an EUC reunion. We soon ploughed through the Daikiba and despatched the boss. Good fun if brief.
Tuesday night and the loot was no better, at least for me, James did rather well though, I am glad to say. I also had issues with weapons not firing and FAPs not FAPing while out hunting and decided to quit earlier than usual, I even had problems trying to sell to the TT! I did manage to put a bid on an A105, the price is quite low and I am bound to be outbid but worth a punt.
Wednesday, loot was still poor, so poor I had stopped hunting and was going through some calculations as to the economy of amps when I received an e-mail from MA. The content of which was to do with the tenth anniversary of EU/PE, I could not help but smile when I read the last paragraph, which I quote here :-
“Finally, as some of you may have noticed, MindArk has already started celebrating by juicing up the loots, globals and HoFs! No one can be sure when this insanity will end so be sure to grab your share of these Modified Loots!”
I tried a few atrox, the return was poor and I left the hunt half done.
Thursday, I picked up were I left off with Wednesday’s atrox hunt, unfortunately the loot picked up where it left off too! Later I finished off the BSF Kaamos on a few allo and esto, I’m kind of sad to see it go, I liked the weapon but the MU is now too high for it to be a practical choice. It was during this hunt that I reached the 4k mark of the 5k Allo/Esto Iron Challenge. Later still I hunted with a P5a, it felt slow and weak by comparison but I think I finally got one of those globals MA were touting in their e-mail.
Friday, I spoke with Wolta and we planned Saturday’s trip.
Saturday, off to Arkadia aboard the Pathfinder, see here for more details. On Arkadia I tried hunting some Nusul solo, the results were quite poor but I did complete stage 2 of the challenge (I think it was stage 2!), I also tried some mining wich came out pretty even. Later I tried some Nusul in team with Wolta and the results were even worse than solo so we went to 8 Coins and had a crack at some Scoria, they proved a bit tough for two armed with P5a but we managed it and even got us a small global of about 80 PED, we were both delighted to find that 75.87PED of that was an ESI.
Sunday, Wolta, Henry and I tried some more Scoria, it was much easier with 3 but the results were not as spectacular. I also tried soem mining but that yielded a very poor return. Soon it was time to return to Calypso, the log for that is here. I tried some more hunting but results were as poor as the rest of the week. I finished the week off having a long chat with Calico about almost everything, it was really nice to catch up.
