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.

Several milestones reached

Log Entry for August 18th 2013

I have just been reviewing my notes, it has been quite a busy week and it contained several accomplishments.

Monday and I started the week team hunting Longtooth with Una Griph Alconbury, an old friend from back in the days of EUC, we managed a couple of globals in quite a short time.

On Wednesday Wolta and myself headed back to Arkadia, we had had such a lot of fun previously that we wanted to return, journey details are in the ships log. I tried my luck in Event Area 3 against the Riptor and the Tiarak, they both had better luck than me but during this hunt I gained a further hit point bringing me to 258 in total, I treasure each and every one of them.

The following evening I tried Huon and Teladon in spite of 3 globals I still managed to lose a few PED.

Friday evening I took a wander after I had reclaimed a good part of yesterday’s losses from the Beladoth and came across a large area with many Oratan Slashers, a mob with short-blades, now your talking! This soon developed into a hunt during which I reached Level 47 in Laser Pistoleer (Hit), it’s my highest profession. I also made a very nice profit from a couple of globals containing 5 items, something I am really not used to. Later Wolta and I returned to the Oratan Slashers, it was dark by then and they were ridiculously hard to spot, we decided to move south and investigated an Oratan Mining Camp near to the Drillrig, Taking on the miners we managed a gloabl between us but the loot was not so good.

Saturday and I returned to the Slashers and managed another profitable hunt, things really picked up after my amp decayed to the unusable state and I started meeting them on their own terms, with the Blade of Despair in my hand. It always feels right when I’m using a knife, I know they are not really practical when compared to a ranged weapon but they are so much more fun. Later Wolta and I went underground to complete a Key 5, we found this relatively easy and decided to try a bigger one the following day. Later still I visited a different Oratan Mining Camp and took on the miners their, during which the Karma Killer finally managed to get to tier 2.9. Unfortunately there do not seem to be the correct items currently available on Arkadia for me to upgrade it.

Sunday and Wolta and myself tried a key 7, we had 3 hours on the clock but only needed 1.5, still it was quite exhausting and toward the end our efficiency had improved as we began to hang back and let the mobs come to us after we had picked them off, not always possible when a spawn takes place in a chamber but definitely a way to save some armour decay. At the end of which we both got to open a chest and we each got a chip of various types, Wolta is kindly going to put these in her shop.

During the week I also managed  level 42 Ranged Laser (Dmg), Level 36 Laser Sniper (hit), level 29 Brawler (hit}, the completion of the first Oratan mission and a couple of IFN missions from the underground. I have noticed that things are not selling well on auction and it may be worth holding off trying to sell for a short while. I also picked up a new Disciple who vanished after one night of many questions and answers.
