Log Entry for August 18th 2013
I have just been reviewing my notes, it has been quite a busy week and it contained several accomplishments.
Monday and I started the week team hunting Longtooth with Una Griph Alconbury, an old friend from back in the days of EUC, we managed a couple of globals in quite a short time.
On Wednesday Wolta and myself headed back to Arkadia, we had had such a lot of fun previously that we wanted to return, journey details are in the ships log. I tried my luck in Event Area 3 against the Riptor and the Tiarak, they both had better luck than me but during this hunt I gained a further hit point bringing me to 258 in total, I treasure each and every one of them.
The following evening I tried Huon and Teladon in spite of 3 globals I still managed to lose a few PED.
Friday evening I took a wander after I had reclaimed a good part of yesterday’s losses from the Beladoth and came across a large area with many Oratan Slashers, a mob with short-blades, now your talking! This soon developed into a hunt during which I reached Level 47 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit), it’s my highest profession. I also made a very nice profit from a couple of globals containing 5 items, something I am really not used to. Later Wolta and I returned to the Oratan Slashers, it was dark by then and they were ridiculously hard to spot, we decided to move south and investigated an Oratan Mining Camp near to the Drillrig, Taking on the miners we managed a gloabl between us but the loot was not so good.
Saturday and I returned to the Slashers and managed another profitable hunt, things really picked up after my amp decayed to the unusable state and I started meeting them on their own terms, with the Blade of Despair in my hand. It always feels right when I’m using a knife, I know they are not really practical when compared to a ranged weapon but they are so much more fun. Later Wolta and I went underground to complete a Key 5, we found this relatively easy and decided to try a bigger one the following day. Later still I visited a different Oratan Mining Camp and took on the miners their, during which the Karma Killer finally managed to get to tier 2.9. Unfortunately there do not seem to be the correct items currently available on Arkadia for me to upgrade it.
Sunday and Wolta and myself tried a key 7, we had 3 hours on the clock but only needed 1.5, still it was quite exhausting and toward the end our efficiency had improved as we began to hang back and let the mobs come to us after we had picked them off, not always possible when a spawn takes place in a chamber but definitely a way to save some armour decay. At the end of which we both got to open a chest and we each got a chip of various types, Wolta is kindly going to put these in her shop.
During the week I also managed level 42 Ranged Laser (Dmg), Level 36 Laser Sniper (hit), level 29 Brawler (hit}, the completion of the first Oratan mission and a couple of IFN missions from the underground. I have noticed that things are not selling well on auction and it may be worth holding off trying to sell for a short while. I also picked up a new Disciple who vanished after one night of many questions and answers.
