Happy Birthday to me. Well kind of!

Log entry for the 14th of August 2016

As you can tell I have not been doing anything other than Space Skilling Saturday for quite sometime now however this week, Thursday the 11th to be precise is the anniversary of my arrival on Calypso as a fresh faced colonist so I logged in for the traditional anniversary hunt.

Thursday, I was on Crystal Palace and there was no one to team with so I went solo against the Aurli, managed a couple of globals of 158 and 50 PED before I finished, oddly the A104 lasted the entire hunt, it normally only manages about 40 minutes but this time stretched to 60, maybe I was just slow. I lost only 25PED which is a as near to a birthday present as MA are going to give me.

After I tp’d to Calypso to help out Clyde, a friend who started the day after I did, he does not play much any more either.

Saturday, it was Space Skilling Saturday which went quite well. After I tried Aurli solo and naked, I managed 4 but it was touch and go at times with plenty of healing so I left it for another day. I would need a healer to make it practical I think.

Loss for the week was 55 PED and that gave me a return of 92%, if it was like that much of the time I would still be playing.

 

Back to the black stuff

Log entry for the 10th of May 2015.

A bit late posting this week.

Monday, After Spondulics dragged his sorry arse to level 7 I headed spacewards in my quad and straight to Crystal Palace where Wolta and myself took on both the Kreltin and the Aurli, with quite poor results. There were a couple of times when I was alone against several Aurli and struggled to survive, during the second bout I did die but went back to pick them off with Wolta.

Saturday, Sub-warp to Rocktropia and then to the surface where I revisited the Werewolves and completed “The History of Vampire Helena #4”, I did not see any reward at the time although when I accepted the next stage, “The History of Vampire Helena #5” (10,000 kills) it did tell me what my reward would be but I’m not sure what it was, Agility maybe? I was not told the amount.

Back into Space to run a transport and later Space Skilling Saturday. I returned to Rocktropia where I spent some time slaying Zombies in the pre-Kong waves and then many of us took on multiple Kongs and various Things, lots of fun and not too big a loss.

Sunday, I spent some time slaying wolves to complete “Vampire Wars #2” and take on #3, I also killed a few Zombies around Evil Cathedral to move that mission forward a little.

This week the return was a decent 87% with a loss of just over 300PED.

Many Kreltin just one Equus

Log entry for the 4th of January 2015.

Monday, I’m on Crystal Palace in Dome 2, I start with 540/1000 Kreltin, after today’s 2 hunts I’m at 656/1000 and lost only about 7 PED in the process. I met my first Kreltin Guardian and must admit I struggled to finish it, not a practical mob for me at the moment.

Wolta has put in a bid for an Equus Quad Wing, rather exciting that. I had considered it myself but I’m no fighter pilot.

Tuesday, just the 1 Kreltin hunt today bringing me to 712/1000 with a higher loss than I would have liked, no matter I’m edging closer to the handgun skill implant reward.

Wednesday, New Year’s Eve, 2 more Kreltin hunts, the loss on the 2nd one was very high, I think there were few people hunting as it was a little late, I ended at 830/1000. Wolta has won the auction for her Equus and between the hunts we take it for a spin around Crystal Palace, both of us were carrying our normal equipment and the poor thing hardly moved, I think the Pathfinder is quicker. We both begin to look at how we can get our equipment to under 100kg.

Thursday, New Year’s Day, I start a new diary and look at how much I have spent last year, it is scarily high, I think I may need to cut down on my time in the Entropia Universe. I manage 2 hunts today the first of which was very poor, not a good start to the year. The second was better but still quite poor, I claw my way to 942/1000, I should finish on the next hunt. I spend some time juggling equipment in an attempt to reduce my weight, I have one case with 0.8 AntiGrav so I can use that to help reduce the load but it’s hard to select what I should take.

Friday, just the 1 Kreltin hunt today, the results were very poor again, fortunately I completed the 1000 today and took as the reward the 16.09 Handgun Skill Implant, this gave me about 20% of a level in Laser Pistoleer (Hit).

Saturday, with the Kreltin mission completed I moved to Dome 1 where Wolta and I teamed to take on the Aurli, initially I used no amp on my pistol for this as the idea was to let Wolta take the kills and complete her Aurli 500, once that was done and the reward taken I fitted the A104 and tried to keep the kills even by holding fire for a few shots on every other Aurli, this mostly works except for the times when the Aurli ganged up on us. Another loss but a lot of fun, with a few cock ups which are always entertaining and 3 globals.

I took the teleporter to the surface of Calypso, I needed some supplies and to collect a few won auctions as well as placing some myself. While on the surface I was contacted by “jok star de PE LeMagniFIK” who gave me 70 PED for scoring 7 Ambulimax globals in OLA 17 about this time last year, I only vaguely remember the competition.

Later it was Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, Wolta and Myself lose as much weight as we can and go for a test run in her Equus, with us both under 100kg the Equus was able to power away from Crystal Palace and with that behind us Wolta engaged warp and took us to Next Island Space Station, the warp was very quick by comparison with my last warp to Next Island in the Pathfinder. Once out of warp we went to the training zone where we took on the Cosmic Horrors before heading back to the Space Station where we compared the speed of the Equus with that of my Quad, it was significantly faster. We then headed to the surface of Next Island. Where I hunted various mobs mostly using the Archon’s sword.

I managed to lose a little over 800 PED this week with a return of almost 85%.

Firsts & Last

Log entry for the 28th of December 2014.

Monday, I stated the week on Crystal Palace team hunting Aurli in Dome 1 with Wolta, the loot was very poor and we abandoned the hunt. Later I was rewarded when I took on the Kreltin in Dome 2, my first kill resulted in a global of nearly 400 PED and later on the hunt I got a second though much smaller global. I also reached level 56 Laser Pistoleer (Hit), I was aiming to reach level 60 by year end, clearly this is not going to happen, if I remember correctly I began the year at level 50 so I got over half way and am still making progress but there is little chance of reaching level 57 in the next few days.

Thursday, I went to Calypso to pick-up some auction items and while there had a go at the Kerbs and the Yule bot in Merry Mayhem, this is the first year I have had access to level 3 and I struggled against the Yule bot. As is usual for me in this event the result was not good but I did get my solo certificate. The Proteron hunt I tried afterwards was much worse.

Friday, I tried the Araneatrox in Merry Mayhem, a better result for me but still not good I avoided the Yule bot this time and got a small global. I returned to Crystal Palace and revisited the Kreltin in Dome 2, 2 globals the first on my first mob and the second on my last, not too bad a result either.

Saturday, I should probably have mentioned it earlier, I’m trying to complete the Kreltin stage iii challenge of 1000 kills, to this end I completed 2 hunts each of 1 hour and using the skill pills, the first one was quite bad but the second one made up for it, with a total of 4 globals, 2 of which were one after the other. In addition the Karma Killer reached tier 5.4, a distinct bonus. I have calculated I’m doing about 55 kph (Kreltins per hour). Later it was Space Skilling Saturday, which also gave a decent return.

Sunday, an Aurli team hunt in dome 1 with Wolta, the returns of which were not good but as always it was fun. Later more Kreltin in dome 2 which was also a bit of a loss. I then went out in my Quad to try the Cosmic Horrors, I was a bit drunk and took more damage and less loot than I would have liked.

I made quite a lot of progress during the week both with Handgun skills (56.2%) and Kreltin (540/1000), this did incur a loss of nearly 700 PED but the return was at just under 90% which is a pretty good return.
