Divine Intervention

Log entry Sunday May 20th 2018

Monday 14th: I begin the week on Arkadia and as I am there I complete day 3/14 for the Oratan Payback Mission III, I did start that yesterday. Cals comes on line and I hand him the the ArMatrix SB-10 (L), he will be level 10 soon so will be able to test it, I am curious about these blades as they use ammo, this could be quite cost effective as it can impart similar economy as a gun and it should last longer. I head to Next Island and arrive in time to take part in SSI.

Wednesday 16th: I begin a Red Papoo hunt but am too tired to complete it so return to the TP to complete another day.

Friday 18th: I complete the Red Papoo hunt started on Wednesday, this takes me to 6752/10k.

Saturday 19th: I head from Next Island to Calypso Space Station by Quad and then take part in Space Skilling Saturday. Followed by a Warp for a new client. I go to the surface of Cyrene and scout the location of the Divine Golem, I test it too and survive more than one hit. Encouraged by this I decide to try this solo, stupid of me.

Sunday 20th: Still on Cyrene I take a look around, this planet always confuses me, I have not spent enough time here maybe if I had I would be confused. Nocturaline and Wolta warp in by Equus and heal me while I take on the Divine Golem, I had no Neurostim-C so it was not quite so easy as previous Divine creatures but we did it, considering I was quite drunk at the time that was a bit of a surprise. After Wolta stays to complete missions but Nocturaline and I Warp to Crystal Palace, I have decided to relocate to Next Island and am moving stacks there for crafting purposes, I am not sure what I need so I am moving almost everything, currently this is being put into Crystal Palace storage in readiness. I go the Calypso Space Station where I see Hone and complete the Divine Intervention mission then I return to Crystal Palace where I hunt a few Kreltin.

 

I have noticed a bit of an oddity with loot this week, it is almost equal to ammo cost for every hunt I have done.

February 2018

Log entry for February 2018

On the 3rd after Space Skilling Saturday I took on the Kreltin for a mini hunt, nothing remarkable but there was a small profit. This was followed by the manufacturing of Welding Wire. More Welding Wire was manufactured on the 4th and 5th with some Rk-5s being made on the 5th as well.

Also on the 5th I tested myself against the Proteron Divine. I found if could get about one fifth of the way through it before being destroyed and by the time I got back it was so near to being completely healed there was little point in continuing. I did kill a few of the Cornundacaudas that also inhabit the area and managed a return of about 19%, I think that may be an all time low.

On the 10th another Kreltin mini hunt after Space Skilling Saturday this one providing a decent profit of 144%. This was followed by the manufacturing of RK-5s and RK-20s.

On the 11th TigeRPaw and I went to deal with the Proteron Divine, I was shooting and she healing, it took us a few attempts before we got this right and TigeRPaw very kindly lent me her “Ranked HK1750” and “Improved Omegaton A105” so that I could start shooting at a greater range than I could with my pistol, it did more damage per hit too but I’m not sure about per minute. The trick to doing this is not to kill the Cornundacaudas, they are faster than the Proteron and if you continually back away from the main target they will attack and get between you and the Proteron providing a buffer that keeps you out of its range. I managed a decent global and a return of 364%. I repaired TigeRPaw’s equipment before returning it and split the loot with her, I would not normally do that but then she would not normally lend her equipment. A great deal of trust was shown and it is much appreciated.

Latter on the 11th I went looking for an Outpost that no longer exists and had a go in the Crystal Cave, a small loss taken there. Later still TigeRPaw and I head into space, See Training TigeRPaw.

On the 15th I tried my luck in the Pit at Chug’s Hideout, using the Mission Galactica, Adjusted Restoration Chip, the chip made this much easier than it used to be. Next there was a solo warp to Arkadia where I found the Kamaldon Divine and let it hit to see how bad the damage was. After speaking with TigeRPaw I am provided with Way Points for all the Divine creatures. Then I spend a happy hour or so with my NIP hunting Halix.

The 16th. I test the Kamaldon Divine, solo. As this is just one TP 1 jump away from a revive I though it worth a shot, it did not work. I spend some time prowling the shops looking for what might help, I find 4 x Neurostim-C which give a decent health and regeneration boost. The after discussing with Wolta tactics we could use I purchase some Medical Tool Heal Enhancers levels III and IV, these allow me to fill all five slots in my EMT kit Ek-2900 and give it a heal capacity of 55 points 29 times a minute.

The EMT is given to Wolta who offers me here tier 7 Omegaton Igni L1100E to use instead of my tier 5 of the same weapon however she has no enhancers so I decline this most kind offer. We armour up and I equip an Aeglic and an Athenic ring, I find the Kamaldon Divine and provide a waypoint for Wolta, when we are both ready I take a Neurostim-C and begin. We managed to get it down to about a quarter of its full health before it gets me, I had just said “Easy :)” to Wolta when I am slain! I get back via TP ASAP and continue the attack, Wolta had also been slain by then but I was hoping she would arrive quickly, she did but not quick enough so we go again, this time she is waiting for me and we finish it off, a terrific loot of nearly 18PED in Shrapnel is the result, there is still a small profit!

Next Wolta and myself try the Oratan Miner camp nearby and then several others hoping they will re-spawn but they don’t. One of them was low enough level for me to do without armour quite easily. We also try a couple of Oratan camps, the first was far too hard and we both died several times just trying to take out one Oratan, the second was suitably easy after which I called it a day. It has been a little over two years since I have hunted with Wolta and it was good to do this again, just like old times. I need to be careful not to end up spending all my free time doing this again, judging by the rest of this log entry I fail.

The 17th to the 21st have small Oro hunts, I’ve been through the IFN Challenges and found the level 2 Oro is the one that should be easiest to finish. Some auction sales and the listing of some new items, I had bought some Arsonistic chips with me from Calypso, it is looking like I did not bring enough.

I have become quite concerned with how much weight I am carrying, when all I was doing was Space Skilling it made little difference, now I am hunting and still carrying about 30 RKs, I rationalised what I am carrying but it is still too much so I have purchased a “Lux Special Armor Luggage”, this was from Calypso auction and is waiting to be collected. For some fun I also purchased a “Sand Runner MK1 (C,L)” I intend to keep a different ground vehicle on each planet so I do not need to carry one with me. I soon find it’s turning circle is that of a small moon and that it often takes damage for no apparent reason, it is good fun though.

I offer to split the loot from the Kamaldon with Wolta but she declines.

The 22nd and 23rd, With the Oro mission complete I re-evaluate the IFN mission situation and complete the 1st Feran mission and finish the ammo off with some Halix I bumped into.

The 24th is Space Skilling Saturday after which I finish the level 1 IFN Gallard mission in the dark. For all these low level missions its the original Arkadia TT pistol a Herman Cap-R and no armour.

The 25th, I decide to become an Arkadian Citizen and pay the price in sweat after which I wander along the path I walked before, several years ago, almost no one would talk to me. I’m not quite sure how it happened but I managed to join the IFN and went through the running about missions (so glad I already had the TPs), I did the puny Oratan and the Arkadian Hornets, I am a private with the desert uniform which for some reason has one stripe.

I completed stage 1 of the Carabok mission and started doing the seven day Oratan Payback mission, not sure what that’s about but no doubt I will find out, probably in seven days.

The 26th, I purchase four of the new Herman CAP-TT (L) and test one of them in subsequent hunts, I have plans for them involving a disciple.

Day 2/7 of the Oratan Payback Mission, is easily accomplished. Halix to upgrade to the Blue jumpsuit (I do not currently have enough shrapnel to progress but it wont take long). Jori IFN mission 1, largely for something to do. The final chip on auction sells for the base price.

27th, more Jori, I got to 63/75. After that it was the Oratan Payback Mission day 3/7.

At this time I had enough Shrapnel to upgrade my colonists jumpsuit, I went as far as Gray before I did not have the materials to hand. After I had done it I realised it was 320PED TT value of stackables to get that far and I realised I had been a bit daft in doing it, that said there is only one more colour to get so I will probably be dafter still.

28th, Jori to finish level 1 then to 37/400 for level 2, Dromia to finish level 1, Oratan Payback mission 4/7 and a 1 PED, yes just 1 PED hunt of Halix, I did not want them to feel left out!

I think i am spending too much time doing this, I will cut back in March.

Some R&R

Log entry for the 10th of January 2016

After the flurry of activity surrounding Merry Mayhem I needed a break to prepare for my next task, a task I’m not sure I’m capable of but nonetheless will attempt. That however is not until next week, this week I rested from Monday through to Friday and only began my activities on:-

Saturday, I place a gun on auction and it sells quite quickly. Space Skilling Saturday occurs after which I stay on Crystal Palace.

Sunday, as I’m on Crystal Palace I decide to try my luck with the Kreltin, my luck was poor! I did reach 1783/5000 for the stage IV Kreltin iron challenge. After I rest some more, for some reason I feel reluctant to commence the next challenge but I’m not sure why, maybe it’s due to my probable failure?

Only 2 hunts this week, as always I include Space Skilling Saturday, the results are very poor: a loss of 277 PED which is a return of 53% like I said, very poor.

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.
