Very Sleepyhead

Log Entry for the 14th of September 2014.

Monday, the one behind the screen was not there, I waited but he did not come. I don’t understand the reasons, they do not apply within the Entropia Universe but from the impression I get the Entropia Universe is a more forgiving universe than the one on the other side of the screen. Still I am back on Calypso and I have not had the annual gift from him, hint, although I do get plenty of others.

Tuesday, he is back but only briefly, I talk with Wolta and Anna and loan a BP to Una who was in need of some basic screws, it was something to do with daily missions, something I think I need to look into. I am at Boreas fighting drones again but not for long and not using a skill pill, the one behind the screen was unsure if he could stay a full hour, he could not.

Wednesday, another short session at Boreas against the drones, still using yesterday’s ammo, some bids have gone in on some skills which is exciting. I talk with Wolta who has been having little luck recently too, we have decided to travel to Next Island this weekend and to have Space Skilling Saturday there.

Thursday, I’m still at Boreas and still using the ammo purchased on Tuesday, the one behind the screen is more with it but still cannot stay long. There were 2 or 3 short sessions today during which I finished the ammo from Tuesday and found it necessary to despatch a couple of drones with my sword.

Friday, more ammo, more drones, not much loot. I did check Twin Peaks to see if anyone was looking for a transport but they were not so I headed to Chugs to try my luck at fight club. I took a critical in round 3 or 4 and died, I was quite surprised. I returned to finish them off but the event timed out on me. That has never happened before, maybe it’s been changed. I received the annual gift, some skills off of auction,  it has managed an improvement in evade which is always good, combat rule 1 is don’t get hit. I tried Fight Club again a little later in the day and finished all waves without getting myself killed but that does not test the time-out on the event. After that it was back to Boreas for some more drones. Later both Wolta and Nocturaline were on-line and we planned tomorrow’s Space Skilling Saturday, it will be in Next Island Space and we will warp there.

Saturday, I returned to the drones where I managed my first global of the week, it was on a gen 1, I have been mostly killing gen 5-10 so go figure. I completed the Drone Stage IV (30k) mission and took the reward in handgun, this gave me level gains to 55 and 47 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit) and BLP Pistoleer (Hit) respectively. The gain in Laser was about 16% of the level. I went on to make some welding wire and looked on auction for some Repair Kit BP but found none.

I had a play with the Society Terminal, giving Wolta a much deserved promotion as well as changing our template to Explorers and altering the name a little. Somehow it seems more appropriate.

Later I put lots of stackables on auction before heading into the black for Space Skilling Saturday.

Sunday, I descended to the surface of Next Island where I hunted various mobs, including Sharks, Drakes, Guardians and Grey Pappo though these last put me to sleep. Later I went to Ancient Greece where I fell asleep a second time. Later still I found myself in the revive cave so put on the 5 parts of Hoplite armour that I posses and took on the Brontes Cyclops, using all of the Archon’s Sword and most of the Herb Box, I got nothing of real interest.

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.
