Log entry for the 18th of January 2015.
Tuesday, this coming Saturday will be the 53rd Space Skilling Saturday which makes it the 1 year anniversary. I wanted to do something a little different and to this end set out in my Quad to confirm the locations of a couple of space creatures we do not normally hunt, namely Locusta and Dropships. During my journey I visited Athena Space Station, Howling Mine, Erebos Space Station and Crystal Palace where I stayed overnight. I successfully confirmed the coordinates I had were correct and while at each of the check locations I engaged with the creatures to test their strength. I thought that Locusta would be. More suitable but decided to leave it to chance with my crew each thinking of a number come Saturday.
Wednesday, I descended to the Calypso surface where I collected various auctions I had won whilst off world, these included some weapon skill modification enhancers levels 4 & 5 which I quickly fitted to the Karma Killer so that all 5 open slots contained skill enhancers. I needed to test these, I had noticed that Chug’s Hideout, for that is where I was, had an unusual number of people milling around and that there were several mobs showing on my radar that were at a fair distance from the environs indicating their size/strength. A wild stab in the dark this but I figured Longtooth! I took a small amount of ammo and headed out, my wild stab proved to be correct and I set to. I found that it took quite a long time to kill them even with an A104 fitted but I did not miss often. I killed 9 or 10 without much difficulty, I’m thinking accuracy enhancers may be better but that’s for the future. The return was disappointing but Longtooth usually are.
I spent some time putting items, mostly Mindforce chips on auction and I discovered a stash of Herb Boxes in my store, I stuffed one in Pamela, the price of these has become quite good since they are no longer available as TT items in Ancient Greece.
Thursday, I returned to Arkadia without incident, here I tried the Teladon, I did quite badly but did get to 330/1200 in the IFN stage 3 challenge.
Saturday, Space Skilling Saturday, it went quite well, I did nothing else.
Sunday, after transporting an old friend I returned to Arkadia where I tried my luck with the Oratan Miners near Steadfast, other than Space Skilling Saturday this was probably the best result of the week with just 1 small global, I did reach 10744/60000 in the IFN kill point challenge stage 6, I think I have done this before but am not sure.
This weeks hunting cost was 370PED, the return 78%.
