On the home world

Monday, I spent a lot of time placing various items looted from other planets onto auction and TTing a few that did not come up to spec.  I would prefer to auction things locally but often this is not practical due to the low population of other planets.  Afterwards I paid a visit to the Drones at Jason Centre, they are definitely not as friendly as they have been in the past but the skill gains were quite good.

Tuesday, I was short on welding wire and rather than buy some decided to make it, I already had some BPs with about 350 clicks but bought another giving me nearly 450.  I had in store only Lysterium so had to purchase the Alternative Ingots and the Ospra Ingots at auction and then find a sweat seller. Once I had more than enough ingredients I soon rattled through the clicks and now have enough Welding Wire to last a few weeks, I hope.
I bumped into Feyn An Talitha, we had been waiting to exchange some pixie parts and did this. She has found a niche creating face tattoos and the one I have seen on her website is pretty cool.  She is interested in acquiring my old apartment at Sakura and we are negotiating a deal.

Wednesday, Only 2 of the items placed on Auction on Monday are still for sale, quite surprised, maybe I should be looking at auctioning some of the stuff in the shopkeeper. I made some more welding wire with BPs acquired at auction, Also managed to add a piece of Hoplite chest armour to my set, only a couple of bits left to get now. That was it, just too tired to hunt!

Thursday, I was still tired, I just wandered about from TP to TP forgetting why I was going there and then going somewhere else. I think I did this for a couple of hours before realising the futility of it.

Friday, off to Boreas to visit the Drones, these where much kinder to me, they even dropped some Aurora armour parts. I could not remember which suit of armour I had used against them before, the Musca +6a or the Viceroy +5b, I tried both, the Musca was better but not by much.

Saturday, The Drones at Boreas were so kind yesterday that I decided to visit them again, this time I made a loss but including yesterday’s result I was still ahead of the game but only slightly. During this hunt the Karma Killer clawed it’s way up to tier 5.1, this looks like the hardest level to tier so it will take a long time before I reach 6.

I decided to create a new armour set for Drones, I took the 6a plates from the Musca and added them to the Harrier set I acquired in the pack I purchased the other week, the Musca went into storage. I had been wondering what I should do with the Harrier, I think with the metabolic increase it provides it may help in backing away a little. Time will tell. I would prefer just swap the plates onto armour as when I see fit but in truth it’s a bit of a ball ache, I would like to see a way to add them that is similar to the method now available to equip a whole suit of armour in one go.

Come about 90 minutes before Space Skilling Saturday and the servers were experiencing all kinds of woe, I logged out as I could  not access a vehicle inventory but could then not log in again. I managed to get back on line with about 15 minutes to spare but could not then spawn my quad or use a TP. I logged again and contacted Wolta by e-mail, we decided it was best to cancel skilling this week as the servers where again down. I spent the time creating a Sleepyheads section on the site, this is for the core crew to use. I hope in time it will contain some useful content, at the moment it just gives those with access the chance to vote where we should go after Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I returned to Boreas twice coming away in the black both times. The Harrier + 6a combination was effective and slightly more economical I think, During the second session which was in the evening the servers were once again suffering, there was a notice on the Loader stating that:-

“Support message

We are recovering data from yesterdays database backlog, this infers extra load on the servers and that is the reason for the exceptional lag. We are sorry for the inconvenience and are working as quick ad possible to get back to normal operation as soon as possible.”

Nice to know they can keep the service running while doing this kind of thing.

I reached almost 20k of the 30k killpoints to finish the Drone Stage IV mission, I should be able to complete it if I make an effort this week. Also getting very close to level 54 Laser Pistoleer (Hit), I expect to get that before I finish the Drones mission.

Hunting returns for this week were almost 102%, nice to see a profit no matter how small.
