Igni (Ronda, tentatively) Vs Kreltin

Log entry for the 6th of December 2015

Monday, still on Arkadia and feeling unusually optimistic I visit the Gold Rush instances in the hope that they may still be open just for hunting but I am disappointed. Instead I provide a transport for my core crew.

Tuesday and Wednesday, I make a round trip to Arkadia.

Saturday, I’m on Crystal Palace so it has to be Kreltin, I have been eager to try the Igni against them. For a change they were pleased to see me. At one point I have to log and when I log back in sometime later I find myself in one of the trees and quite high up. I work my way down, eventually having to fall to the ground, fortunately the gravity is low. I kill 2 Kreltin in a row and both global, well that’s just good manners really. Later in the hunt I manage a 3rd global and I end in the black. I teleport to the surface of Calypso taking many PEDs worth of stackables and items with me. After storing the load I find and purchase the necessary and tier the Igni (Ronda, tentatively) to 3.0. I place items and stacks on auction and visit Pamela to update stock there before I try Fight Club, this also gives a positive result and a small global, it is becoming quite easy, it will not be long before I try it in less able armour. Space Skilling Saturday was a busy one, the loot was poor but I do gain a level in Captain.

Sunday, back on Arkadia I drop a 5 hour, 100% skill pill and have a crack at the Teladon. After 2 hours I’m down quite a lot, this in spite of 2 globals, one of which was decent, I manage to gain levels in Gunner and Grenadier. I end the week with about 2 hours and 50 minutes of skill pill still to use, down just 250 PED and with a return of 87%. Not bad.

Trading and manufacturing

Log entry for the 18th of October 2015

Monday, I’m on Arkadia and foolishly decide to try my luck, I seem to be particularly unfortunate on Arkadia and today’s Huon hunt was no exception as it gave a return marginally over 50%, with a loss of 235 PED, not good at all. I was planning to leave Arkadia temporarily anyway but due to this loss I was able to do so in disgust. I travelled to Crystal Palace and there amalgamated my loot before Teleporting to Chug’s Hideout on the surface. Here I purchased Lysterium and Piles of Garnets in order to complete the list of components required to tier the Igni up to 1. The upgrade process was painless.

Tuesday, I purchased Root Acid and Gazurdite ingots and proceeded to manufacture some RK-20s, quite a bad run, it produced only 8 units from 43 attempts. I also manufactured 76 PED of Welding Wire.

Thursday, I have decided to use the Dehera Immolation Sword and to this end repaired it. I then purchased an RK-5 BP and went to hunt the Rextelum, go figure! I did quite well with a loss of just 8 PED and reached 16650/30000 for The Supreme Rextelum Slayer mission. I purchased some Sweat and made more Welding Wire until I ran out of Alternative Ingots at which point I made 19 RK-5s from 56 attempts. I began placing my loots on Auction, such a ball ache.

Friday, I purchase extra Alternative and Ospra ingots and made a shed load more Welding Wire. Put more stuff on auction, some was bought.

Saturday, with the Igni upgraded to tier 1 I decided to make use of the slot and purchased a couple of weapon economy enhancers before trying my luck with the Rextelum. I used over 400 PED of ammo and both the newly purchased enhancers in order to discover that my luck was poor, in this instance economy enhancers were very not economic. I purchased the components necessary to upgrade my viceroy shin guards to tier 3.2 (clearly they were ready sometime ago). Later it was Space Skilling Saturday, after which Nocturaline and Myself descend to the surface of Arkadia where I purchase and repair a key 10 with the hope of the Sleepyheads doing this Sunday. That did not work out and we had to postpone until Monday.

This week I managed to lose about 550 PED and experienced a return of 66%.

Sell, Sell, Sell

Log entry for the 19th of April 2015.

Monday, I retrieved collected loot from Crystal Palace storage and Teleported to Chug’s Hideout where I added it to Calypso Storage and merged all stacks before beginning the painstaking process of Auctioning off and TT’ing as much as I could.

On this day and the following 6 I placed a total of 71 items/stacks onto auction 42 of which had sold by the time I got to Sunday night. The maximum of 30 auctions was a slight hindrance but made record keeping slightly easier.

As well as the auctions I began the pursuit of a modified FAP all I need to get this is a few FAPS and 75 Small Chadriak Mushrooms which are lootable from the Marcimex, 2 hours on Thursday and Friday and 1 hour on Sunday brought me to 2893/3000 for the Iron Challenge Marcimex Stage II, the conclusion that this was a very expensive pursuit (with the loss from each hunt getting worse) and the decision to abandon it as a focus once I had finished the Stage II mission. I had managed to gain just 1 mushroom (a rare item HoF) on the Thursday. Space Skilling Saturday occurred on Saturday evening as is usual and on Sunday I went in search of and found Weapon Enhancers for Skill, Accuracy and Damage tiers 1 through 5 (even got a 6 in skill, optimistic of me).

I managed to lose 845 PED this week with a total return of 73%. 817 PED of this was thrown to the Marcimex, as you can tell the loss for Space Skilling Saturday was minimal, it giving the best percentage return of the week.
