Return to Next Island

Log entry Sunday June 17th 2018

Again, very little going on however after Space Skilling Saturday the Sleepyheads (well Phil and Nocturaline) helped me out by transporting myself and most of my stackable items to Next Island. As Space Skilling Saturday will be at Next Island next week it was the appropriate time.

I arrived to find no Crystal Centre, clearly I had missed something, I tried #nextisland and was informed by “Risen Ra Oh” that I had missed an update, it seems there are several new TPs and some old ones have been removed. He told me he had put some updates on the forum but checking nextisland.com I could not find anything, not even from an official. I am not sure which forum Ra was referring to.

It seems I will be busier next week, not only will I be in a position to begin crafting but I will have some exploring to do. Quite looking forward to it, I hope I can find some time.

It seems I am not the only one struggling with time, Neither Cals or Budski have been on line and Wolta’s only appearance was for Space Skilling Saturday.

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.

More travel than action

Log Entry 6th of May 2018

May 1st – Tuesday: Red Papoo to 2496/10k followed by test flying the Gungnir I made, I can see its use and I like the visibility but will need some practice at the controls before I can appreciate its handling.

Latter I attended SSI (I must to start calling it by its correct name), which was good, I wonder where all those people are the rest of the time, normally I only see one or two of them.

I did begin the process of working out what items I need to collect but soon got tired of that.

May 2nd – Wednesday: With very little time this evening I did a little crafting, which showed a positive result. Before attending SSI, this time for the full hour, I think that mat be a first.

May 3rd -Thursday: Grey Papoo to 700/20k for some reason, possibly I am losing my marbles. Followed by SSI.

May 4th – Friday: Red Papoo to 3542/10k, even made a couple of PED here. Then I began a journey to Rocktropia, I am transporting Nocturaline’s Starfinder IX at Sub-Warp.

May 5th – Saturday: I concluded the journey to Rocktropia in the same vehicle. Space Skilling Saturday took place.

May 6th – Sunday: On Rocktropia I try the Vixens for the AI mission. I travel offline to Calypso. I am preparing a relocation to Next Island.

 

Clearly I have resumed a weekly blog, I’m not sure I will continue with that but will see how it goes.

Outplayed by Pamela!

Log entry for the 20th of December 2015

I do nothing during the week but Pamela manages to sell 3 items, no surprise really she looks much better than me.

Saturday, I purchase a “Default Athenic Ring” from Nocturaline and test it in Fight Club. I survive but do quite badly, the ring however makes a difference during wave 4 when I am struggling to target just one Shinkiba due to them being so tightly packed around me. I restock Pamela and later run Space Skilling Saturday which went surprisingly well (I probably have Pamela to thank for that).

Sunday, I purchase a Dominax Original Boiga (L) and a BP to make Dominax Original Mamushi (L). It takes me a few attempts before I manage to make a Mamushi, it would have been cheaper to purchase one. I also take a 5 hour 100% Skill Pill and spend 1 hour in Merry Mayhem, there are no globals but I do get some good loots, I do however have enough ammo for a 2nd hour on my person and intend to continue with this tomorrow night by completing the second hour. Needless to say hours 3 to 5 will follow to burn the Loot Pill, I am optimistic of making lvl 60 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit) before the new year. Clearly I am not taking my own advice of last week.

Results for the week (not including 1 hour in Merry Mayhem)  +60 PED, which was a return of 119%, not bad but I still think Pamela did better.
