Omegaton Igni L1100E

Log entry for the 11th of October 2015

Tuesday, My week begins in Ancient Greece, I still really like it there even though it’s been spoilt by all the tourists bringing in new technologies and destroying the native creatures. Talking of destroying the native creatures I embarked upon a pointless slaughter of some Steropes using all the technology at my disposal. The return was very poor at less than 50%, you may think the Steropes had the last laugh but there dead an I’m not so na na n’na na. I emptied my Ancient Greece storage of stackables and moved them to Next Island.

At this point my records seem to have a gap in them, I am not sure when but I know I took most saleable stackables and items from Next Island storage and headed back to Pathfinder XXXI at which point I logged and waited. Lizzy came on-line at some point and moved the ship to Crystal Palace and at some point after that I disembarked and put all the Next Island stuff into storage there. After that not sure how long after but I think it was Thursday, I headed to Zeus Space Station in the Pathfinder, overshot and whilst in Gordon’s Belt did a little skilling until the ship blew and both the ship and Myself were returned to Zeus Space Station where we docked overnight.

Saturday, I continued on to Arkadia, why this is not in the ships log I have no idea, some kind of brain fever perhaps, certainly I have days missing, possibly there is a hole I’m my mind. I remember going into the Arkadia training grounds and the ship blowing a second time, I have a vague recollection of repairing at Arkadia Space Station. It is at this point my records begin again with the entry “Arkadia entry tax 2pd” so I must have descended to the surface. I knew why I was there and wandered the streets looking for Nocturaline’s shop, eventually finding it I sought what I had come for and on doing so transferred all earnings from my Arkadia Underground Deeds and my Calypso Land Deeds into my PED card before purchasing the Omegaton Igni L1100E for +10k. Slightly overpriced I think but better to buy from a friend. I repaired the pistol before logging.
Later on re-logging Nocturaline supplies an Arkadian Key 7 and Wolta and Myself join her in this. I got to try out the Igni and was quite impressed, in just 45 minutes it got to tier 0.6, I did a good amount of damage without the need for amps and did not use too much ammo, I shall be watching the figures over the next few weeks. The key as always was fun, with multiple globals, I even completed a mission but I forget which one.
Later still it was Space Skilling Saturday which went quite well.

Sunday, Wolta supplies an Arkadia key 9 and Nocturaline and Myself join her, more fun was had, another mission completed (again I forget which), the Igni got to tier 0.8, there were multi globals and a rare item HoF (Arkadian golden key outer ring x2) plus my max health went up one more notch to 179, the loot was not too good though, unless the rare item sells on auction.

The weeks results were – 453 PED, 65.4%.

I like this gun and am considering giving it a name, more to ponder on.

At Cyrene

Monday, an appalling hunt of Oratan Miners Underground resulted in me being very pleased we were leaving Arkadia, which we did late that night.

Tuesday, I descended to the surface of Cyrene in my quad, there was no one else visible in the vicinity of the space station though there was one other Vega class ship docked.

On the surface things have changed greatly from the early days, it seems almost civilised now. I accepted what missions I found throughout my wanderings and ended up hunting some Mang Chang with very little success. I could quite easily cope with Young, a Mature required some concentration and at one time I tried a Guardian which was definitely a mistake and involved more return trips via a TP chip than I can remember, they do regenerate quite quickly. I did try a Rhino Beetle Young but my armour was not up to the job.  Talking of Armour, my Viceroy Shin Guards reached tier 1.9 and are ready for upgrade to tier 2, the required materials for this are stored on Arkadia so it will have to wait.

Wednesday, Stalkers were tonight’s hunt, a standard hunt (250 PED of ammo, this is basically what it takes to completely use my A105, with damage enhancers in all 5 tier slots of the Karma Killer). I found these to be a reasonable mob for me to hunt, not doing too much damage to me and being killed quite quickly, the return was reasonable as well.

Thursday, I was low on funds, having only enough for a small (100 PED of ammo) hunt, I decided to try Skyshatter, these were a little on the difficult side, I tried swapping out plates on the Viceroy from 5b to 6a but it seemed worse! I did loot an Enkidd  but other than that the loot was unremarkable. Due to the amount of damage I had taken and healing I had done my repair costs were higher than usual and I found I did not have quite enough PED so I TT’d a little loot.

Clearly I have spread myself a little think of late, the upshot of planet hopping is that loot gets left in storage on the various planets and the PED card balance goes down. I need a different approach to loot if I am to continue such frequent travels.

Friday, I was broke but found a couple of stacks in my inventory at login, I checked my latest downloaded item list, the stacks were listed as being on auction, I guess this was from 1 year ago on Rocktropia! I TT’d them along with some Cyrene Stacks and got myself some ammo, I wanted to try some Tide Claw, not the tiny ones something bigger. So I checked Entropedia and headed to the various locations there, biggest I found was an old (I had noticed a couple of dominant globals) after about 2 frustrating hours of searching I gave up and logged off.

Saturday, the search for Tide Claw continued, I had  noticed on the loader a link to a Cyrene specific site, after searching on a rather difficult map I found, with Wolta’s aid, a couple of locations. I tried both of them and found that I could take the providers quite easily, the guardians were a bit difficult but doable most of the time. Once again I managed to half my money!

In the evening it was time for Space Skilling Saturday, so I saved a few PED by not hunting. Afterwards I got my feet on Rocktropia for the first time in quite some while.

Sunday, Rocktropia seems like it’s been hit by the Borg, vast swathes are no longer there, buildings are absent, mobs have moved to new locations. I was eager to “Server the Nation” and had to resort to planet chat to locate both the Lady Helena (now sadly in her grave) and the werewolves. That done it was time to kill werewolves, loot was quite poor on the first run but good on the second, I still find the amount of makeup that werewolves carry to be quite disturbing. Between the two hunts I had purchased the Gold Starter pack, solely for the skill pills and I popped one of these before the second hunt, the skill gain results were a big improvement though it seems I need to buy more than 250PED of ammo if I am to make use of the full hour, at least at the rate of fire I was achieving.

The pack contains a few other items, the armour makes me look like RoboCop, it gives an 8% increase in metabolic rate, I think that just means I can run faster, I need to test if I can get more swings with a sword when wearing it but I doubt it. The gun could work as a tagging weapon, I will need to test that once my current one expires.

In the evening roamed a little with Nocturaline, had a look around the Zeplin and had a play in the car that came in the pack, a lupus 4×4.

The week ends with a return of just over 62%, not good but I’ve known worse.
