Log entry for 13th of September 2015
Monday, I begin my week on Calypso, I wander from location to location hunting various creatures as I go, a fairly pointless exercise. I head to Crystal Palace where Wolta and I twice hunt Kreltin in a team, results were poor but as always we had fun. My reason for visiting Crystal Palace is to make use of a 10 hour 100% skill pill, try to gain a level in Laser Pistoleer (Hit) and kill as many Kreltin as possible to get me closer to the 5000 required to complete the current Iron Challenge. I begin this process today with my first solo session lasting one hour, followed by a quick visit to some terminals to resupply, repair and store before logging off. The loot looked poor and my subsequent calculations showed it to be very poor.
Tuesday, 2 more hours spent hunting Kreltin, each with a brief visit to the terminals afterwards. The first was again very poor whilst the second resulted in only a small loss and a couple of globals. Looking at my records I seem to be doing almost 100 Kreltin per hour (kph) and while skill gain is definitely greater than normal it is not as good as I had wished, it looks like I will fall short of the hoped for level gain.
Wednesday, 3 more hours completed today, each ending in the usual way, the first with a remarkably dreadful return, the second with a poor return and the third with a very poor return, something exceptional needs to happen soon if I’m to get close to breaking even on the week.
Thursday, another 3 hours and after the last hour an additional 17 minutes to finish off the pill. The first hour resulted in a small profit, the second in a small loss and the final 1 hour and 17 minutes in a second remarkably poor loss. Thankfully it’s over, that 9 and a bit hours cost me 1662 PED with a return of 64%, I’m rather pissed off about the amount of PED lost if I’m honest.
Friday, taking a rest but I do provide a warp transport.
Saturday, while I’m at Rocktropia I “Serve the Nation” for a short while but am still quite despondent from the Kreltin experience. Wolta and I return to Crystal Palace in readiness for Space Skilling Saturday.
That was the week, return was 62% and I lost a total of 2120 PED, I killed about 900 Kreltin and raised my Laser Pistoleer (Hit) to about 12% short of the next level, I’ve known better weeks.
