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.

Leaving Rocktropia

Log entry for 23rd of August 2015

Thursday, more Motorhead Security,  looking forward to Completing this mission, it has become something of a drag. I lose more PED than I care to.

Friday, my last hunt of Motorhead Security, I complete the mission and still have about 30 minutes of loot and skill pill (10%) so I move over and Serve the Nation for a while slaying Werewolves, an acceptable loss on this hunt. Later I spend an hour slaying Werewolves and did not do quite so well but have reached 1405/10k for the History of Vampire Helena #5. I took Dominique’s Domination #4 but made no start on it.

Saturday, I go for a wander on Rocktropia, it being my last day here for a while (I have plans), I had to terminate a few Mulholand boys and Rocktropians who made a nuisance of themselves. Later it was Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I awake at Crystal Palace and store the stuff I have transported from Rocktropia. Wolta and I team as “Chug’s Nomads last team huntagainst the Kreltin, we manage in less than an hour, 4 globals (410, 51, 62 and 93 PED, including a couple of low/non existent MU items). This was an exceptionally good hunt and we both enjoyed it. The reason this was the last team hunt is because the Soc. name is changing (again).

The result for the week was a loss 76 PED and a return of 95%, thank the Kreltin for that.

Don Crazyshadow Hunterz, outstanding behaviour

Log entry for 26th of July 2015

Monday, the week begins on Rocktropia and I’m serving the nation, the werewolves give me a slight positive as I reach 1215/10000, still got a way to go. Later I’m in the group who take down a Zombie Kong and a couple of King Kongs, the loot was dire and there was some discussion as to its distribution. On the last King Kong most of us got next to nothing but one Don Crazyshadow Hunterz managed to get a rather large ESI. He also thought the distribution off and gave 100 PED to each person in the group by way of correcting this error. Outstanding behaviour, I’m not sure there are many here who would do that.

I’ve noticed the SkullCandy gloves are ready to tier.

I did a little travelling and alighted on Next Island before heading to Ancient Greece to take on the Steropes Cyclops. I managed to kill a few by way of a test before logging.

Tuesday, I hit the Steropes in 3 separate hunts throughout the day, with each I improve as my methods are refined, I’m wearing the SkullCandy armour with 5B plates, this provides very little protection against one of their attack types so the improvements have noticeable effect. All 3 hunts gave percentage returns in the high 70s and low 80s.

Wednesday, More warping followed by more Steropes. 3 Steropes hunts the second of which provides a 564 PED Global and a smaller one, I also manage a small global during the 3rd. I finish the day at 284/333 Steropes Cyclops and calculate that 2 more hunts will see me completing the challenge.

Thursday, I was wrong, I completed the challenge + 1 more before the pills ran out (I should probably have mentioned I was using some pills to enhance my speed, heal and hit points). I changed into my chiton before visiting Penthesilea to claim the reward for completing the Bronze Age Challenge, I chose Athletics and Stamina which gave me a max health increase to 177 a stamina increase to 12 plus a couple of skill gains. After I noticed some red dots at the edge of the scope and on investigation took on and defeated the Avatar of Pan. In the other direction there was some Cyclops (Guardian of War) and a larger one in a building, I think it will need to be a team effort to take on those.

Friday, I returned to Rocktropia in readiness of tomorrow. It seems I have completely failed to make a log entry of this journey. Nothing happened so I guess I just forgot.

Saturday, Space Skilling Saturday followed by some L1119 The Things, a few Zombie Kongs and a King Kong, a lot of fun and with quite a large group but the loot was very poor.

Sunday, I return to Serving the Nation but this time the Nation does not serve me. Wolta and I team and take on a few Dragons (I cannot remember which ones, Morrison maybe) and some Motorhead Security, we manage to global on both before Wolta suffers a disconnect that is not recoverable, I receive an e-mail explaining she is experiencing a router problem.

Quite a large loss this week of 1086 PED which provided an 80% return. The Steropes was a loss of just 288 with a 91% return. I shall be returning there myself, partly because the loot is not terrible and partly because I would like to kill 333 with my Bronze Age equipment (not an easy task), after a recent VU it became possible to use anything in Ancient Greece and with the SkullCandy and the Karma Killer I feel that I have cheated somehow.

Average Combat level increase

Log entry for 19th of July 2015

Monday, I’m on Rocktropia so I “Serve the Nation”. Must… Serve… the Nation….. The Nation serves me right back with a positive return against our adversary, the Werewolves. I allow some Vampire Chicks to slowly tear me to pieces, I stand against 6 or 7 of them and keep my worthless self alive by using my Herb Box (and rarely one of the EKs) until it runs dry.

Saturday, It’s a busy day for me and I cannot log on until Space Skilling Saturday. After I return to Rocktropia looking for Zombie Kong but find only 2 big Things and no Rocktropians, I try Secret Island for a King Kong there but nothing.

Sunday, Returning to Rocktropia I continue to Serve the Nation and the Nation continues to serve me right back, my Vampire Mistresses are most beneficent and grant me 2 globals. Whilst doing this I use the last of my 50% skill gain for an hour pills but do gain the Average Combat Level increase, I’m now at level 35, I humbly thank the Nation.
