Log entry for the 14th of December 2014.
Monday, most of today’s efforts centred around getting the Philosopher’s Sword to tier II, I did this by “Serving the Nation” Completely Using the Sword 5 times and on the last hunt it got to tier 1.9 and was ready to be upgraded, hopefully with 2 Skill Enhancers on it it will be of better use to Wolta when we next visit Ancient Greece. I also took part in a couple of Zombie Kongs, some of which was using the Philosopher’s Sword but it was nearly all Karma Killer and it managed to crawl it’s way to tier 5.3 in the process. It was a good day with 6 of 8 hunts resulting in a positive return.
Tuesday, I used the new auction system to bid on items on Calypso while I was on Rocktropia, I say new but this is how it originally was when there was only Calypso, Crystal Palace and what was then called Club Neverdie. Now as then the auction transport fees were on the high side especially as I was after more than 1 stack so I elected to collect these myself and set off in Pathfinder XXXI for Calypso.
On arrival I placed a collection of items onto auction, retrieved my Skill Enhancers and then set about purchasing what was required to bring the Philosopher’s Sword to tier II and the EMT Kit EK-2900 to tier V, this was all relatively painless as I had most of what was required in store and it was not long until both items were tiered. I added some Weapon Skill Enhancers to both of the available slots on the Philosopher’s Sword, and put it away for Wolta to try on her return.
I decided to try the Araneatrox and the Atrox but both were being very uncooperative so I cut the hunt short.
I also stuffed a looted DOA Slugstorm into Pamela.
Wednesday, After placing a few more auctions of items that had already sold I headed spacewards and paid a visit to my old friends the Aurli on Crystal Palace, they were not pleased to see me. I left thinking them quite rude and headed back to Rocktropia.
Thursday, I descended to the surface of Rocktropia where I once again visited the werewolves to test out the Philosopher’s sword, they were slightly more welcoming than the Aurli of yesterday, I still wonder why they carry so much makeup?
Friday, the Werewolves were becoming quite rude so I paid several visits to the Scavenger Wolves with my old EnBlade A. I started the 500 mission intending to finish it before leaving and after 2 visits had reached 116/500, they were far more eager to entertain me. Wolta did try the sword and it is an improvement but more practice is required.
Saturday, 3 more visits to the Scavenger Wolves was all I could manage today, this brought me to 301/500, not bad progress but a miss of my target by quite a long way. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday, the Cosmic Horrors were decent hosts and this week I stayed awake.
Sunday, I was on Cyrene where I blundered into some Paneleon and entertained myself with error message after error message while slaying these and doing pretty much anything else too, it was very irritating. I did consider raising a support case but put it off. Cyrene had changed a lot since my last visit, a completely new map and I had lots of Teleporters to find (again) so I was kept quite busy.
All things considered this was a good week, there was very little by way of loss and a return of approximately 90%, there were considerably more hunts than is usual but due to them using a sword that’s no real surprise.
