I’m halfway there

Log Entry for January 26th 2014

A mixed bag this week, some very poor results and some not so bad, even had a couple of positives, maybe things are looking up.

I started the week on Crystal Palace hunting aurli and making a start on the 1k mission, not a very big start but it all counts, the results here were rather poor so I headed for Calypso where I set about completing the ambulimax 6000 point challenge, I had a reasonable return in OLA17 where I also tried a little mining for the first time in a long while also with a reasonable return. I finished the 6k ambulimax at Nea’s where I had a decent positive return for the first time in what seems like forever. I took as my reward the 12.56PED Handgun implant and this brought me to within a gnat’s nad of Lvl 50 Laser Pistoleer (hit).

After Space Skilling Saturday I took on the kreltin at Crystal Palace where I ended the week, this did bring me to Lvl 50 Laser Pistoleer (Hit), it also unlocked Combat Sense which has caused all my hit skills to increase rapidly as I gain skills in this, a bonus that will soon wear off unfortunately.

Wolta and I teamed on an aurli hunt which had a + result and was good fun, I think I’m beginning to enjoy team hunting a lot more than I used to. I then took on some more kreltin to bring me to 186/500 for that challenge, the loot has been quite poor but the reward is another handgun implant so no doubt I will continue.

Other than the aforementioned skill gains I have had quite a few other skill improvements this week:-

Lvl 10 Carpenter (go figure), Lvl 32 Swordsman (Hit), Lvl 26 Brawler (Hit), Lvl 32 Evader, Lvl 26 Grenadier (Dmg) and Lvl 24 Dodger.  In addition my average for combat has increased to Lvl 28.

I noticed a few weeks ago that the Karma Killer had crept up to tier 3.8 without me noticing the individual 0.1 steps however it has stayed there even though I have been using it a great deal, this seems the same as when it got to 2.8 and then took what seemed like forever to trip over to 2.9 and be upgradeable. I am quite looking forward to gaining a tier 4 slot, it is becoming quite a formidable weapon but I have a lot of catching up to do before I can use it properly.

My foray into trading last week looks destined to fail, the article almost immediately took a dive on the auction ratings and is currently worth less than what I paid for it, I’m hoping that will change and it’s value will return to it’s previous average in the next week or so.
