Grinding Werewolves

Log entry for the 29th of March 2015.

Monday, the week begins with me hunting Werewolves, they are still giving me wood but I have now learnt where to sell much of it so as to get some mark up as opposed to just stuffing it into the Trade Terminal. I manage the smallest global, I have noticed most globals on these are now in the 50 – 60 PED region, I think it indicates that the area is fairly exhausted but I could well be wrong. I shall plug away here the rest of the week and see what occurs.

Tuesday, 2 hours hunting Werewolves and again the smallest global during the first hour (which was split around a VU).

Wednesday, another hour hunting Werewolves, this time I managed 2 globals one of which was over 100 PED, so maybe there is some life in this area as yet. It was the most profitable hunt of the week and the 2nd one that had a positive return.

Saturday, and yes you’ve guessed it, Werewolves, another small global and only a small loss, I did not record my progress for “The History of Vampire Helena #4” for this hint but I’m guessing it’s around the 3750/5000 mark so I’m slowly crawling toward my target.

Later it was Space Skilling Saturday and a Cosmic Horror hunt with a 90% return. After which I went to Arkadia and back in my Quad so as to collect some auctions I had won a few weeks ago.

It’s been a good week as far as the coffers are concerned with only one hunt below the norm and a couple above it. I lost only 80 PED with a return if 97%, weeks like this are rare to say the least so I’m happy. Decent progress was made Serving the Nation, Wolta has joined that mission too so hopefully we can keep the Vampire Chicks happy. I’m guessing at about a 7% increase towards the next level of Laser Pistoleer (Hit), I may make level 60 this year.

2 in a row, been a long while since I did that.

Log entry for the 22nd of March 2015.

Monday, my sojourn on Calypso is extended by a day and I spend some time completing a couple of daily hunting tasks, namely Traeskeron and Scaboreas, the 2nd of which was quite dull. I also placed a few items on auction, I really must have an auction week soon and try to free up some space in my Calypso storage, I should have done it this week but spent my time loafing and drinking, maybe it was the other way around.

Thursday, I tried my luck with the Proteron, though I gained a hit point bringing me to 175 it was a mistake, I lost over 200 PED to them with a remarkably low return of just over 22%, possibly my worst ever. In disgust I headed into the big black and set course for Rocktropia.

Friday, I “Serve the Nation” for an hour using both skill and loot pills. I did not do too badly but had no more time.

Saturday, I spend 2 separate hours in the pursuit of Werewolves at the end of which I am at 2844/5000 for “The history of Vampire Helena #4” mission and the Karma Killer has reached tier 5.8, it’s looking as though it will finish it’s current mission before I finish mine. Later it’s Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, an hour in the morning “Serving the Nation” this time with loot pill only. During this session I manage 2 small globals in a row, the last time I remember that happening was in the old days when there was still a statue atop one of the Twin Peaks and the Argonauts where in the rocky hills near to the shopping mall, good days. This was my only positive hunt of the week and then barely.

Later Wolta and Myself team against Motorhead Royalty and Motorhead Security, that was a good laugh especially when they re-spawn, surround and destroy us.

I managed to lose quite a lot this week, about 780 PED, the return was about 82%

Soc. Event

Log entry for the 15th of March 2015.

Monday, I continue to Serve the Nation and after consuming a Skill Pill proceeded with the ongoing slaughter of Werewolves, as is normal they gave me wood. There is some exciting news, well exciting for me, the Karma Killer reached tier 5.7, it has been a long time coming but it’s crawling it’s way to its next tier upgrade. I managed to crawl my way to 2083/5000 Werewolves, not even half way, I feel I’m racing against the Karma Killer for completion of a mission.

Friday, it was quite late when I joined and was hoping a Zombie Kong would be in progress, it was and I joined at wave 6, there seemed to be 4 or 5 people doing this so I was optimistic that it would not take too long. After wave 8 was over and I was the only one still there I gave up for the night.

Saturday, no Kong at login so it was Werewolves, Werewolves, Werewolves after 3 hunts of different lengths I had reached 2316/5000. Not the most exciting or varied day but that’s why they describe it as a grind. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday and after that a Sub-warp journey to Crystal Palace in readiness for a Soc. Event tomorrow evening.

Sunday, Wolta and I teamed in Dome 2 against the Kreltin, I’m not sure if we won but as an individual I was not far short, we managed a couple of globals as “Chug’s Nomads”, it had been a while since we teamed as we are mostly on separate planets now so it was good to take this opportunity. I’m fairly sure Wolta was switching between using and amp and not in order to even up the numbers when it comes to the mission, I ended at 322/5000 for the Kreltin stage IV mission.

Later I descended to the surface of Calypso where I sorted my outstanding auction purchases and added a few more to give me 5 tiers of Accuracy Enhancers on the Karma Killer, I tried my luck at Fight Club, in order to test this configuration, it seemed reasonable. I did get killed on round 4 when I was pinned to the wall but returned to finish the job. I put quite a few items on auction, one of which sold the same day and several of which I expect not to sell.

Later still, Soc. Event time; Tiger had organised a PvP event for us to participate in. This consisted of 4 rounds using en-knuckles kindly supplied by Tiger. Each of us participants brought some items to be pooled as a prize for the final round. As everyone knows, when it comes to PvP I suck, so I was expecting to do badly.

Ding Ding, round 1; This was a 1 on 1 event winner stays on and involved the 2 pugilists being perched atop a blade of rock, if you fall off you lose, if you are killed you lose. The first fight was Ulleh vs PBG with PBG emerging as the victor, in the second Tiger took on PBG and won when she fell from the blade, in the third it was Tiger vs myself, whilst he dodged about punching me I stood there and just tried to hit back, it took a while but eventually he beat me, it was when I was at the revive I noticed I was still in walk mode, it may have made a difference but I doubt it.

Ding Ding, round 2; This was all 4 of us in a mass brawl in the water, I kept out of the way to start with and when the others were weakened moved in to be killed, which of course I was. I just don’t seem to be able to turn fast enough.

Ding Ding, round 3; Again a brawl but this time in the forest, recognising my weakness I climbed a tree to a point where there was little space behind me and waited to be attacked. I was attacked but I still could not turn fast enough and PBG managed to get behind me somehow. Another fail but I had lasted much longer, as a strategy this was my best bet.

Ding Ding, round 4; The final round, Tiger was not taking part however if he was hit he would hit someone else, this round was to be fought on a large area at the top of a mountain. So far the prizes had all been supplied by Tiger, in this round the prizes were the pool of items us participants had contributed. We were given a chance to take positions before the brawl began. I found a promontory where I could stand, to my right was a sheer drop behind me and to my left the ground sloped away quite steeply, I positioned myself as far back as possible and faced the plateau, Ulleh came at me first, due to the height difference of the ground I was looking straight at her breasts, distracting yes but I kept punching just the same, Ulleh did try to get behind me but fell down the slope and it slowed down her return enough for me to turn and face her again, it was not long before I killed her off, at which point PBG attacked. Again the breasts in the face, again the attempt to dodge behind me, I was really low on health far lower than PBG when she tried to get behind me and fell down the sheer cliff, the topography came to the rescue. I had won the final round, surprisingly by using my brains!

Afterwards we all went and fisted a few Longu before everyone but myself logged. I proceeded to make some welding wire, 548 clicks in total, a small loss was incurred but I made nearly 28PED of welding wire and drank a reasonable quantity of Jim Beam while I did so. After which I logged.

This weeks return was about 82% with a loss of nearly 440PED, not too bad.

Serve the Nation

Log entry for the 8th of March 2015.

I have decided to stay on Rocktropia until I complete my current mission “The History of Vampire Helena #4”. The situation may change due the requirements of others however in the event of such an occurrence I shall endeavour to recommence my service at the earliest juncture.

Monday, Werewolves, they continue to give me wood, I should soon have enough to build my own log cabin, I spent the best part of an hour gaining more and in the process managing a global and another loot that was very close to a second. I increased my stock of different weapon enhancers, I think from a stall near the rotating guitar, these were accuracy enhancers III, once I have all 5 levels to fill the available slots on the Karma Killer I shall commerce some half-arsed testing.

Friday, I took some time from my service to assist the Rocktropians with their  unceasing battle against Zombie Kong, 3 times I assisted in his redemise, let’s face it, he has out reincarnated Jesus multiple times already and will continue to do so. During the 3 assists I was involved in a total of 15 waves of Zombies and dragged myself to 1886/5000 for the “Boot Camp 4 – Hell Week” mission. I did of course spend some time slaying werewolves, they won’t kill themselves you know.

Saturday, more werewolves and later Space Skilling Saturday after which I purchased some nanocubes and proceeded to manufacture some explosive shells ready for tomorrow. I was hoping to take on Zombie Kong again but others did not start the waves until it was too late for me.

Sunday, I packed the explosive shells I had manufactured yesterday and headed to Wet Wolf Creek, after collecting quite a lot of wolves (only some of which were wet) I set about using my Eraktor Es 10 (L) to kill them en mass, this was a lot of fun but the Eraktor was not really powerful enough and I took considerable damage to myself and then to my armour, I shall have to return with a more powerful weapon. Later it was werewolves, Kong and werewolves, I have reached 1920/5000, I’m not in any great hurry to finish as I am enjoying my time here and not doing too badly on the loot either, I should probably purchase some more skill pills, now that’s a good idea!

This week I lost a little over 200 PED and managed a return if nearly 90%, I consider that a good result. With both Wolta and Nocturaline in possession of Equus quad wings there is no longer the feeling that we need to be on the same planet most of the time so each of us is pursuing our own course without the constricts required by proximity, it is taking a little getting used to.
