Getting an Aurli start

That’s just a terrible title and I apologise for it.

Log entry for the 30th of November 2014

Monday and an Aurli start to the week (the gag is so bad I thought I should use it twice), I have been plugging away at the Aurli stage III challenge (Kill 1000) and try to progress this whenever I am at Crystal Palace. I had 500PED of Universal Ammo with me, and set out to use as much as it would take to expire my A105, HoF20141124loot was poor and according to reports had been all day but unusually I had a good feeling about things and not too long into my hunt was rewarded with a very poor global. Still I felt good and kept going and just 5 minutes later a pretty decent HoF occurred taking me to number 3 on the board. Later still a second (slightly better than the fist) global was acquired. Shortly after my A105 was in need of repair, as things seemed to be going my way I dusted off my portable repair unit, fully repaired the A105 and continued to slaughter the Aurli, however my luck had run out and I did not get any more loots big enough to register as globals however one was in the 40 PED bracket. During this phase of the hunt I found myself in an area where the Aurli seemed to be spawn and at times I had 5 or even 6 of them attacking me, I survived this most of the time but did visit the revive twice.The second time the A105 expired I left the field of battle to asses my loot, and quite a good haul it was too, one full TT DOA Slugstorm (L), a shed load of shrapnel and a lot of ammo comprised most of value. The Ammo was sold, the shrapnel converted to Universal Ammo and the Slugstorm put in vehicle storage to be either auctioned or stuffed into Pamela when I visit Calypso and remember.

Nothing happened until Friday when I paid another visit to the Aurli, this also went quite well with only a small loss and it brought me to 819/1000 of the Aurli stage III mission.

I was feeling lazy so I TP’d to the surface of Calypso where I had a few things to do including naming my old snablesnot with a collar, I called him Spondulics. I visited Calico and Billy’s new apartment in TI City, which was nicely appointed. I also purchased a pair of Hoplite Armbands, finally completing the set.

After I was invited to one of Drop Zone’s famous Opalo Proteron hunts and I joined for the duration which turned out to be an hour making a very small profit and remembering how not to get killed, although I came close a couple of times. Casper, Drop Zone’s leader added me as a friend and we had quite a long discussion about several things including daily missions and hunting with some heavy hitters. After which I decided to do the Feffoid Cave mission to gain only my 3rd daily token although I’m sure I’ve done the cave more than that!

Saturday, I tried the Proteron solo and found I could do the young OK although there was quite a lot of healing involved I got 2 globals out of them the second one of which was very nice for a global and I managed a decent profit on the session. Latter it was Space Skilling Saturday, where I managed to lose just 2.6 PED hunting the Cosmic Horrors, a good day.

Sunday, I descended to the surface of Next Island and headed straight to Ancient Greece where I managed a few Steropes Cyclops to add to the mission, I need to kill 333 and have 5, this is going to be a long haul as they are tougher than me with my Archon’s sword and the Hoplite armour, I desperately need a healing squad. The present tactic is to pick out the weaker ones and then back towards he teleporter whilst attacking, I die at least once every time but this way I have less distance to travel to continue the attack after I revive and return to the scene and hopefully the Cyclops will not be too close to any others. A hard mission this one. I also did a few Brontes Cyclops just because they are easier. This hunt continued into next week but I’ll not make you wait for the result, the Cyclops beat me fair and square.



Log Entry for June 17th 2013

Wolta has reached level 25 Vehicle Structural Engineer, awesome news for any transports we will be running in the future, excellent work Wolta. I am intending on discussing our plans for the Pathfinder with her this coming weekend, I think it’s time to try and get some more regular passengers, hopefully we will come up with some kind of plan.

I have been doing some more car racing with Nocturaline we tried Chug’s circuit a couple of times with one win each, we also tried racing around lake Penzance which is quite an exciting and flexible circuit, Nocturaline thrashed me on that one.

Tiger decided to try the pit again and this time survived but did not challenge me for leadership, we decided that in such circumstances the challenger can have the Soc. ranking system changed and he and PBG elected hunters, this has been changed and I am now telling the world that I’m a “Great Hunter”, this is clearly untrue. I do not like the ranking system but it is not my place to change it.

I seem to have gotten some enthusiasm back and spent some time hunting this week. I have managed to reach the 6k mark of the 30k Rextelum Iron challenge.

On Friday night I was East of Saba Camp tying to reduce the numbers of Rextelum I had already had a small global when I hit nice HoF, 1800 and something PED, been a long while since I hit one that big and as far as I know it’s the highest I have ever been in the Hall of Fame, 3rd place. I was naturally rather pleased. I became more pleased soon after when Wolta pointed out I was at number 15 in BIG Industries 100,000 PED Supernova event and that this event was due to end the following night, the prize was 1000PED for the top 100 loots during the event.

On Saturday evening Wolta and myself teamed and managed a 3 global Rextelum hunt, I managed a small gain whist Wolta managed a small loss, I think I just managed more hits on the bigger of the globals and that made all the difference.

Also on Saturday (at least I think it was Saturday) I joined Drop Zone for an Opalo Proteron hunt, this was great fun as usual but I was very tired and the soothing sound of gunfire made me nod off twice, waking each time at the revive, after the second time I called it a night.

The prize giving for the BIG Industries event was Sunday evening, Wolta and I did attend but there were some issues, Blastoise had connection problems and kept disconnecting, a bit sad for him really, I am sure he would have liked to participate more. Freyr stepped in and handed out the cash although I am sure Blastoise did some. I did leave and come back after about 30 minutes or so as clearly there was a lot of trades for them to get through. It was odd to find myself standing around in the company of so many heavy hitters but I hope to have the opportunities to get used to it!

The Karma Killer has reached tier 1.9 and is ready for an upgrade, I am in the process of getting the required materials together, I will be adding more accuracy enhancers, it is an unlimited weapon so it is very important for it’s economy to reduce the number of misses.

The old limited armour parts continue to expire and be replaced with Ghost, I think I just have the harness, thighs and gloves to burn now.

Some bigger robots turned up, well I say bigger they are the same size and basically the same robots just tougher, there were at least 2 (Shared Loot) All Time Highs from these. I did have a little go but quite often got nothing in spite of firing a lot of PED into the mobs.
