Fight Club

Log Entry for the 16th of November 2014.

To be honest my notes for this week are something of a mess,  I don’t even know what day I returned to the Calypso surface, Monday, maybe Tuesday, I certainly was there by then because I paid a visit to Fight Club at Chug’s Hideout. I survived the trial without any problems, in fact it seemed easier than I recall and I did not lose to much for the trying.

Wednesday, Fight Club again, this time it seemed harder though I still survived, maybe I was just lucky on Tuesday, I was more fortunate financially today as I managed a small global and a smaller profit for my troubles. After I visited the Rextelum East of Saba Camp, I do no where near as well on these as I used to but it was fun and I did progress the current iron challenge.

Friday, Fight Club for the last time, the Shinkiba took their revenge, I did survive but it cost me, I guess I took all their loot Wednesday. I acquired some weapon skill enhancers I & II to try instead of damage enhancers, higher tier were not available so I shall just have to make do for the time being, maybe I should have a chat with Henry.

Saturday, I visited the Feffox and did particularly badly looking at the figures and making a guess as I have not plugged them onto the books yet, still money was not the purpose, I finished the current iron challenge, stage II and took the perception reward. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday fun but everyone was nodding off even though Sleepyheads got a global.

That was my week. Hopefully the end result was not dire, I will do the books later this week.

Some time on the home world

Log Entry for June the 29th 2014

Monday, I spent the day hunting Brontes Cyclops, I was using my Archon’s Sword and repaired it 3 times, loot was good the first and third hunt both resulted in globals and a decent profit. I found the herb box just did not heal fast enough and would not keep me alive against an attacking Cyclops, the strategy therefore was just to attack, healing was only done at the revive. Whilst this did work quite well I decided I did need some armour in order to make this a little less arduous. Later it was off to The home world (Calypso) in the pathfinder, it seems I forgot to include that journey in the shop’s log, I do seem to be getting more forgetful, I will try to include something.

Tuesday, I tried both Atrox and Feffox, neither were particularly good though. I decided to try a little crafting and made 3 Breer P3a pistols using up a limited BP I had acquired at some point. I started trickling some of the Next Island Pixie parts onto auction as well as one of the P3a. I find myself wanting to return to Ancient Greece.

Wednesday, I revisited the Drones at Jason Centre, the loot was better but still not good, I tried crafting a few Weapon Skill and Weapon Accuracy Enhancers, which I put on auction along with the residue and unused components that I had purchased, I made a loss but I am not sure how to record crafting, it is the most difficult to assess as the ingredients are mostly not purchased from the Trade Terminal. Need to do some thinking on this one.

Thursday, I tried the Drones at Jason Centre once more and got a decent return (over 80%), I also tried some Longu down in LA6, again more than 80% return, whilst there I did a little mining which returned over 95% so things are looking up. I had a chat with Henry BabyOxide Ha about crafting and he gave me a few pointers which I’m sure will be useful.

Friday, I visited Boreas to take on the Drones there, 2 hunts both in the black. Whilst there I gained another Hit Point bringing me to 168, very happy, a good day in the Entropia Universe. Later it was off to Arkadia.

Saturday, On Arkadia, I had a poor hunt of Oratan Miners followed by a little more crafting, this time of Simple 1 Conductors and Welding Wire, combined there was a slight loss but I will probably recover that by not needing to pay the MU for Welding Wire. The day ended with Space Skilling Saturday and some more travel.

Sunday, Arrived at Toulan, I must admit to being a Toulan virgin, I spent the day roaming, finding TPs and Revives and trying my luck against all I met. My first hunt was very surprising, I had just 100PED of ammo from when I was landing in the Quad and I used this against whatever I encountered, the result was in the black and I had 13 weapons looted, Ok they are not high TT or anything but that many items was something to see. Subsequent hunts were not so successful but I still got many weapons.

Overall an interesting week, with several locations visited and mobs hunted, my return for the week (not including crafting) was a little under 88% which is a good result. I have been considering changing the Soc. name again but am not sure. Neo has been back on line and getting several globals as well as a HoF,

Sometimes I wonder

Log Entry for March the 9th 2014

I’m sure we have all been here at some point or another, the opportunity arises to purchase something that is somewhat more expensive than is usual. I’ve been there several times in the past, sometimes I’ve bitten the bullet other times I’ve let the opportunity pass, I think so far I only got it really wrong once and I’ve forgiven myself that one (almost), I was rather drunk at the time. Anyway, I’m at that place now, I’m swinging back and forth as to whether I should do this or not, at the moment it’s not but it still comes to mind fairly often so that may change.

This week has been fairly busy, I managed to get my average combat level up to 29, 30 here we come.

I would like to say “thank you” to Lady Trisha who healed for a minute or two whilst I killed a Feffox Provider, turned out to be a global. She had been hunting independently of Wolta and myself who were in a team and at one point I found myself alone against the beast while Wolta was reviving. Lady Trisha took it upon herself to offer assistance before TP’ing away.

Fight Club, fun as always, I was killed by the Kirakiba in wave 5 after all but one of the wave 5 mobs spawned directly on me. Wolta also tested herself against the waves and was slain in wave 4, wave 4 can be very difficult when surrounded it is often hard to hit your target and when being moved healing is much reduced, it is the round that requires the most concentration to get through.

Losses this week have been acceptable, I have had 9 hunts and lost approaching 200PED, many of the hunts have been small though. I have been re-visiting the drones at Jason Centre where I use the Karma Killer (still at tier 3.8) without amp or enhancers, this has proved to be quite effective as the drones keep their distance I can gain a greater skill bonus from the sights. I am thinking about creating a weekly percentage return figure to publish with each log entry, I need to make some amendments to my record keeping first though.

Space Skilling Saturday was a bit of a fiasco, quite entertaining though, I do find it quite entertaining when things go wrong, in this case it was largely my fault.

Still pondering the potential purchase.

 

A HoF for Wolta

Log Entry for March the 2nd 2014

The week got off to a good start with nice HoF by Wolta, number 88 on the list, a 395 PED loot from a Riptor mature. Good going Wolta I hope many more will follow.

As for myself I have hunted Beladoth, the (Shared Loot) Oratan Lancers, Kadra, Shinkiba, Araneatrox, Rextelum, Drones and Feffox.

I completed the Beladoth 400 IFN mission and have turned the mission in, apparently I got a 6.30 PED implant gain in shortblades.

I also tried a very small mining/treasure hunt run in the vicinity of the Oratan Lancers, it was not hugely successful but did give a better percentage return than hunting tends to.

I tested myself in Fight Club and was killed in wave 5 by a critical hit from the Kirakiba, I did go back and finish the wave but it’s still a fail.

I decided to enhance my sight, I use a Headshot 2 and have upgraded by adding a Bullseye 8. It seems they work best at range hence the drone hunts. I’m considering upgrading the site to give me better skill bonus.

Only a few skill gains this week Level 33 Powerfist Engineer, Level 44 BLP Pistoleer (Hit) and Level 44 Knifefighter (Dam).

It has been another poor week as far as loot returns are concerned, I have lost over 700PED, several of the hunts returned exceptionally poor amounts and my best return was a mere +10PED.

The Karma Killer is still at tier 3.8, I’ll get there one day.
