Ancient Greece and lifting my embargo.

Log entry for the 11th of January 2015.

Monday, I began the week on Next Island where I had a go at some Portal Guardians, I had only my Hoplite armour due to the weight restrictions imposed by my mode of transport, I thought it only fair to use weaponry of a similar ilk so I kept the Karma Killer in its holster and unsheathed the Archon’s sword. I found these quite easy with the ancient equipment.

Tuesday, back in time to Ancient Greece, it’s like coming home though I was not really ready to return, those Steropes Cyclops are still too tough for me. Instead Wolta and I teamed against the Brontes Cyclops, with me only attacking until about half way before healing Wolta while she finished them with her Philosopher’s Sword. We did quite well.

Friday, I took on the Brontes solo, this time doing remarkably badly for Ancient Greece, this cancelled out Tuesday’s return. Later I tried a couple of Steropes Cyclops solo, I was resurrected several times on each occasion but did walk away with a profit before leaving Ancient Greece with slightly more gold than I arrived with. I did leave the Hoplite armour there as I have not been using it elsewhere.

The rest of the day was spent travelling, firstly back to Crystal Palace with Wolta in her Equus then after taking our equipment from storage onto Arkadia.

Saturday, I was still in space and took my Quad out to take on some Cosmic Horrors with predictable results although I do feel I’m getting better at this. After it was time for Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I lifted my self imposed embargo of Arkadia as it is the new year and the duration of my exile had come to term. I took the quad via a circuitous route to avoid the lurking pirate. Once on the surface I went shopping finding some Medical Tool heal enhancers V and some Weapon Skill Modification Enhancers V, both of which I purchased.

Later I looked through the outstanding IFN challenges and found the Otorugi stage 2 to be nearest to completion requiring me to stay 100 to complete the 400 required. I took “The Bad Moon Rising” to their location, popped a skill pill and set to, one hour later I had gained some skill, lost about 150 PED, had reached 367/400 and raised the Karma Killer by 2 points to 5.6! After taking a bit if a rest I returned to finish the 400,this time without a skill pill as I knew it would not take an hour, this time I lost only 15 PED and after turning in the mission reached 56.6839 Laser Pistoleer (Hit).

The week had reached its glorious end and to my surprise I had done quite well managing an 85% return and the loss of only 260 PED. I had also purchased some more Lux luggage and a pitcher to assist me in organising way to much carried equipment as well as Weapon Modification Enhancers that would enable me to fill all the 5 slots of the Karma Killer although much of this requires collection from Calypso.

Next Island (Eventually)

Log Entry for June the 15th 2014

Monday and I continued with a hunt against various Oratan, this did not go well, the return was very poor. I did get Level 29 in both One Handed and Two Handed Clubber at the same time, these have always been at the same time, either I have never used a club or this happens for everyone.

Tuesday – Thursday, I concentrated on Oratan Miners, this gave a much better result but it was still poor, Skills gained were Level 32 Brawler (Dmg) & Level 22 Gunner (Dmg). On the Tuesday I had a nice long chat with Alaina Bonnie Scotia, nice to get to know her a little. There was a time when I made a point of trying to catch up with everyone on my FL but I have let this lapse, maybe I should make a bit of an effort.

Friday, Oratan Miners again, poor result again. No surprise there.

Saturday, A couple of hunts participating in the Oratan Slasher Thug Event for New Starter Packs The first one returning over 90% and the second over 110%, this was by far the best result of the week. I should probably have stayed for the rest of the weekend but had other plans already deferred from last week. During this the Karma Killer reached tier 4.9, excited to upgrade it but could not find the required commodities, looks like a trip to Calypso is required, however I was heading the other way. After Space Skilling Saturday  it was off to Next Island with Wolta and Nocturaline.

Sunday, I awoke on the ship and headed to the surface of Next Island, it has been quite a while since I have been there so was quite excited, it was just as I remembered it, still a lovely place but with too many monkeys. I had 3 hunts covering Storm Drakes, Snow Drakes, Boars, Portal Guardians, Island Sharks and Pirate Skeletons. Returns were between 55 and 70%, actually not bad by comparison and to my knowledge I got my first Next Island global ( I could be wrong), then I got my second, the first was against the sharks, the second the skeletons although for some reason that one did not register on entropialife.

Exiv has made a return this week we are intending to get the soc. together for a few team hunts.

That’s my week, sorry to go on about the loot returns so much it’s just that they have been so shit for so long that I’ve been considering hanging up my gun and concentrating on the transport business. The overall return for the week was 66.54% I hope Next Island is more generous but I’m not optimistic.
