Log entry for 26th of July 2015
Monday, the week begins on Rocktropia and I’m serving the nation, the werewolves give me a slight positive as I reach 1215/10000, still got a way to go. Later I’m in the group who take down a Zombie Kong and a couple of King Kongs, the loot was dire and there was some discussion as to its distribution. On the last King Kong most of us got next to nothing but one Don Crazyshadow Hunterz managed to get a rather large ESI. He also thought the distribution off and gave 100 PED to each person in the group by way of correcting this error. Outstanding behaviour, I’m not sure there are many here who would do that.
I’ve noticed the SkullCandy gloves are ready to tier.
I did a little travelling and alighted on Next Island before heading to Ancient Greece to take on the Steropes Cyclops. I managed to kill a few by way of a test before logging.
Tuesday, I hit the Steropes in 3 separate hunts throughout the day, with each I improve as my methods are refined, I’m wearing the SkullCandy armour with 5B plates, this provides very little protection against one of their attack types so the improvements have noticeable effect. All 3 hunts gave percentage returns in the high 70s and low 80s.
Wednesday, More warping followed by more Steropes. 3 Steropes hunts the second of which provides a 564 PED Global and a smaller one, I also manage a small global during the 3rd. I finish the day at 284/333 Steropes Cyclops and calculate that 2 more hunts will see me completing the challenge.
Thursday, I was wrong, I completed the challenge + 1 more before the pills ran out (I should probably have mentioned I was using some pills to enhance my speed, heal and hit points). I changed into my chiton before visiting Penthesilea to claim the reward for completing the Bronze Age Challenge, I chose Athletics and Stamina which gave me a max health increase to 177 a stamina increase to 12 plus a couple of skill gains. After I noticed some red dots at the edge of the scope and on investigation took on and defeated the Avatar of Pan. In the other direction there was some Cyclops (Guardian of War) and a larger one in a building, I think it will need to be a team effort to take on those.
Friday, I returned to Rocktropia in readiness of tomorrow. It seems I have completely failed to make a log entry of this journey. Nothing happened so I guess I just forgot.
Saturday, Space Skilling Saturday followed by some L1119 The Things, a few Zombie Kongs and a King Kong, a lot of fun and with quite a large group but the loot was very poor.
Sunday, I return to Serving the Nation but this time the Nation does not serve me. Wolta and I team and take on a few Dragons (I cannot remember which ones, Morrison maybe) and some Motorhead Security, we manage to global on both before Wolta suffers a disconnect that is not recoverable, I receive an e-mail explaining she is experiencing a router problem.
Quite a large loss this week of 1086 PED which provided an 80% return. The Steropes was a loss of just 288 with a 91% return. I shall be returning there myself, partly because the loot is not terrible and partly because I would like to kill 333 with my Bronze Age equipment (not an easy task), after a recent VU it became possible to use anything in Ancient Greece and with the SkullCandy and the Karma Killer I feel that I have cheated somehow.
