    I've complete three more missions in a row: Ostelok, Navi and Beladoth.
    Stage 2 Navi.jpg

    PRINT SCREEN 2019-10-10 19-40-52.jpg

    Now I'm working on Stage 6 Hadraada and a bit of Monura Female till the thousanth (recorded) hunt. My plan, as yet, is as follows:
    #999. Korwil, I've bought a set of 5D plates with cold protection. But I'm still not sure if I can solo them.
    #1000. Yuka, it's save to say that I need a healer for this hunt.
    #1001. Aakas-key, it took me 30 minutes to figure out how to solo an Aakas-key with a treasure chest at the end. But now that I know how to, I will do so and here's to hoping that I can get past the big boss Dehera.

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (29.3k of 50.0k).
    41. Use all extra (L) Mêlée weapons (47 of 50).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    49. Finish Korwil Stage 1. (33 of 75).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (48 of 65).

    Done it! One thousand hunts - and beyond!
    Before that I've done a good Hadraada run and two smaller Caraboks. I want to finish my Hadraada Stage 6 before moving over to Calypso, because I want (and need ...) their Evade reward.

    Hunt #999 Korwil
    Autch, they hurt. Agressive cats. I've died more times then I cared to remember and couldn't get back to at least one after I died. Too many of her friends were protecting her and I couldn't find a save landing.
    Bespite all the dying, it was great fun and a good hunt in the end.
    Korwil 008.jpg Stage 1 Korwil.jpg
    Korwil 007.jpg Korwil 009.jpg Korwil 010.jpg

    Hunt #1000 Yuka
    At first I was planning to do this one with a healer, but couldn't find one quick enough and a socmate got me over to try them solo. So I did. And killed my first Yuka Young. ... and then I got killed by a Mature ... and sometimes a Young, or an Old would ninja on me. One time it was even a Yuka Provider who was angered by my presence.
    And in the end I got absolutely nothing. Well, two plants, but those are worthless.
    I couldn't even finish Stage 1. I want to come back after Hadraada Stage 6 with some better Evade and a healer this time for sure.
    PRINT SCREEN 2019-11-01 20-41-18.jpg

    Hunt #1001 Aakas Key #6
    I got in there with the help of Garci. At first it felt kinda strange, running a key without looting all the mobs, normally I run a key without a chest at the end. The end boss, a Dehera Furion L46 wasn't as bad as the Yuka either.
    Aakas Celebration 1.jpg Aakas Celebration 2.jpg Aakas Celebration 3.jpg Aakas Celebration 4.jpg Aakas Celebration 5.jpg Aakas Celebration 6.jpg
    All the chests gave me a global, which is nice of course. But not enough for me to break even this time, yet it was fun to do and will do so again.
    Aakas 006.jpg Aakas 007.jpg Aakas 008.jpg Aakas 009.jpg Aakas 010.jpg

    And after these three celebration hunts I've done three more Hadraada's. And one of them had a nice suprise for me in its belly.
    Hadraada 173.jpg

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (32.0k of 50.0k).
    41. Use all extra (L) Mêlée weapons (47 of 50).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    49. Completed! Finish Korwil Stage 1. (75 of 75).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (49 of 65).
    51. New! Finish Yuka Stage 1. (50 of 75). This reward isn't much, Weapons Handling, but it gives 1 HP/1600 at least. Yet the reward for Stage 2 is a lot better, imo: Anatomy. No HP this time, but it's good for Dmg prostandings, Paramedic and Looting pro's. (Maybe Weapons Handling isn't such a bad choose?)

    Let's talk about the Codex and Calypso.
    At the end of the summer, when the new mission style was announced, I said to myself to complete as many missions on Ark as I can. I think I'm now nearing the point where completing another mission is either costing me too much time, too much money, or both. The best progress, except Hadraada and Yuka, is Mutated Nusul at 69%.
    I'm sure that I can do more on Caly right now. Really, I can't say out of the top of my head what missions I'm close to completing. It will be a suprise for me too what the next completed Caly mob & stage will be. Therefor I'll be taking a trip soon. And while I'm over there I'll start organizing the Mêlée all the Way! 2020 too!

    The Hadraada's no longer liked me, after the last profitable hunt on them. I've hunted the small ones at Quarry at four o'clock in the morning. I was wide awake and couldn't sleep any more. Then I've went to the big ones near Victorious and back again to Quarry. All to no avail.
    Yet, in the end, Hadraada Stage 6 done for the third time!
    Stage 6 Hadraada (3).jpg

    The last hunt on Arkadia in 2019 was to complete Stage 1 Yuka. Another archievement done!
    Stage 1 Yuka.jpg
    I needed time to get used to Calypso -again- after arriving there by Mothership warp. I've made a list of all the Caly mobs and their old-style missions (if any) and my progress on these. Made a note of those that give skill good for Evade and/or HP. First mob to do were the Longu. I got my first Caly global on them since coming back too!
    Next the first of two Atrax hunts, and another succes. There I hunted them in a spot amass with other mobs like Armax and Thorifoids.
    And then the loot made a landslide down the drain. Rextelum: I'm now an Apprentice fighter with no loot. Feffoids: still working on completing that mission, but with no luck yet. Mourner, oh help! Those must be the strongest L5 mobs in the whole of Entropia! They are agressive, hit hard (100% impact) and often, and killed me 2-3 times for a small 50 mob hunt. Stupid me going for a Daily that I shouldn't do. Also, this is a typical Caly mob that one just shouldn't try with mêlée weapons but with a long ranged rifle in stead.

    51. Completed! Finish Yuka Stage 1. (75 of 75).
    52. New! Finish Argonaut Stage 3. (200 of 1000), they are easy enough to do and there is a good LA at New Switzerland for them.

    Let's talk about the Codex and Calypso some more.
    What I like about the new mission style is that it starts automaticly when interacting with a new kind of mob. Either by attacking it, being attacked by it, or simply from scanning. I also like that you'll continue to score points for it when a rank is completed and you haven't claimed a reward yet. The rewards are, of course, a dozen different skills to choose from. It looks like there is a slight difference from mob to mob, yet not so much as to make it really worthwhile to go for one or the other.
    What I also don't like is that all progress is now just something like Rank 2 : 56.7%, and no way of tracking the number of kills (or killpoints). I'm working at making an equitation that translates a progress in the Codex to a kind of Codex Points (CP). As long as I don't have that, it will show here as ?? CP. [Edit] Added CP.

    Argonauts: done!
    Feffoids: done!
    Hiryuuu: ... there just isn't a good spot for them, is it? From the start that I landed on Caly two weeks ago, the Hiryuu mission had the most progress. Yet, I just can't seem to get it done. I only have to kill 15 or so of them. I now just kill 1 or 2 before each hunt, and hope to get it done that way. It's not that they have a very good reward any how.
    Allophyl: done too!

    In between finishing Argonauts (didn't like them by the way) and Feffoids (bit better) I tried to hunt the Falxangius. I have the Daily 3 open for years now, just biding my time. And now I wanted to have it done ... and got halfway of 60 kills. They are so damn hard, even Youngs in a team. Level 36? Make that 63 please. But I will get this Daily 3 done, and Falx Stage 1 too!

    The loot now was bad from the Atrax right to the Allophyls, really bad with returns of 60% even! I decided to go for the Atrox as the next mission to take on (by the power of a random number generator) and wasn't expecting much of it. Atroxes have never been good for me. But now they were, with no less then 5 globals!

    I didn't wanted to do another Atrox hunt after that one, and went for the Warriors at Emerald Lakes. Mixed in with Molisk, one Eviscerator, some Troopers and ... Atrox. This hunt was done after the update last week and the resolution was quite low and I didn't knew how to fix it (now I do), so these pics are a bit smaller.

    52. Completed! Finish Argonaut Stage 3. (1000 of 1000).
    53. New! Finish Atrox Stage 2. (251 of 500). I can do them in 1 or 2 more hunts, I warrant.

    And some more good missions done!
    I've been working on the Falxangius on and off, and now it's almost there. (Excually, I got it already. This update is till december 17th and I completed the Falx yesterday). I also got one of my biggest solo loots on Falx.

    Falxangius 006.jpg

    Together with SBM from NBK I've hunted Osseocullum (bad) and Leviathans (also bad, but at least they globalled).

    And then: Iron Atrox II completed! I very much like the reward.
    Stage 2 Atrox.jpg
    Armax, Hiryuu and Trooper: all done! I still got 54 old missions to complete, 24 of wich have a favorable reward. Not done yet ...

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (32.0k of 50.0k).
    41. Completed! Use all extra (L) Mêlée weapons (50 of 50).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (51 of 65).
    53. Completed! Finish Atrox Stage 2. (500 of 500).
    54. New! Finish Legionnaire Stage 1 (66 of 1200). I'm afraid of them. I fear that I will die even more then compared to the Falx. But, I can do it ... I think ... hope ...?
    55. New! Obtain a set of Liakon armour (0 of 7). Looking to upgrade my collection of armours. Falx do a lot of impact damage, and a fair number of other mobs likewise. I think Liakon is a nice armour, with good Impact protection that I could also use on Arkadian mobs like Navi, Oratans, Scoria and maybe Yuka.

    I've also bought 50 more AMD's and got the S0ph13 pet. And, of course, I didn't bring any fruit nor sweetstuff with me from Arkadia. So now she is a very starving robot. I've tried to mine some sweetstuff, and found a few fruits on the ground. But still, she's starving.

    As a said in the previous post: Falx is done! Even though I got a nice global, the results were bad again.
    Stage 1 Falxangius.jpg Falxangius 007b.jpg

    Later I did the Droka, because it came up as a daily and got a very nice global in it too.
    Droka 001.jpg
    I hunted them west of the Jurra Plateau, a spot with only Droka. After this I went for some Legionnaires, west of Fort Ares, a place with not only Legions but also Droka and Trooper. I didn't knew before, but I could have done all three missions together. No big deal, still happy to have done them all.

    I've also been working a bit on the Molisk. Done the Caudatergus Iron V and Ambulimax Iron I.

    And lastly, I already got my set of Liakon! So happy with it! :D

    36. Collect Arkoins (32.0k of 50.0k).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (52 of 65).
    54. Finished! Finish Legionnaire Stage 1 (1200).
    55. Finished! Obtain a set of Liakon armour (7).
    56. New! Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (45.2 of 50.0). I had some easable reaching goals set for myself, so now it's time again for something more compelling. I won't get there overnight, but that's oke. I can work on it slowly and one day get it.
    57. New! Finish Molisk Stage 3 (350 of 1000). Another Iron mission to complete before they're all gone. This one I can do in 1 or 2 hunts, I guess.

    Just a quick update before year's end. I managed to cranck in a few more. Molisk aren't done yet, but Sumima and (last of 2019) Foul are. I thought these would be quite hard, yet just like the Legionnaires they pale in comparison to the Falx. I also ended up accepting yet another mission, to look at some swamp of Fort Lahar. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting it to be filled with Calamusoid. So I did the first part, for the second I need some type of gasmask/ gaspill or else I'll die quickly. We'll see, could be fun to do. I've searched for a good spot to hunt Defenders (because I got those as a daily). I haven't found a good one yet, but on the westside of the Odysseus Island works just fine.

    Try Typhon's Reach wave for Defenders, mixed with different robots but easy enough. Use the breach in the wall behind the statue to avoid getting swarmed by all of them at once.

    2019 Summary

    2019 was an active Entropia year for me. I've completed a ton of missions (spurred on by the Codex). And I got some good stuff to look back at - and look forward too.

    Let's see what I've done, archieved and gotten to this year. Not everything, just sort of the highlights for me.
    Right at the start of 2019 I've unlocked Wounding!
    I upgraded my GYRO Combat FAP-60 Smuggler to tier 4.0
    I got a promotion from the IFN to Sergeant. Nowhere near a high ranking general, it's not something that's high on my list of things to do.
    I got a disciple, who also graduated this year. Unfortuatly, he left the game already too :blackeye:
    I (re)started doing some mining. Still waiting for my first global in 5 or 6 years.
    Calypso Puny's are done!
    By accident I found and killed the Mod Merp.
    I participated in killing the Sand King a few times.
    I flew to Crystal Palace and hunted (small) Kreltin and Aurli solo for the first time.
    I've upgraded my armour sets with 5D plates (12 Cold protection), CDF Scout (just another weak armour) and Liakon (great Cut/Stab/Impact and also 31 Cold).
    And lastly: we did a great Mêlée all the Way! on Arkadia, including a 2286 Huon HOF! :woot:

    And now for the 'bad' stuff.
    I failed to find any and all Marcimex.

    I've spend this year a total of 76812,73 PED, that's nearly 60% more when compared to 2018. Of those PEDs 73357,11 (95,50%) was the weapon-decay and ammonution used. 3207,11 (4,18%) was my total defense cost, more then in 2018. 117,79 (0,15%) was the cost of everything else, that means flying with the DragonFly when I'd been killed or jumping with the TP-chips. Also the cost of the Aakas and Sal'diresh Keys and pills are in here. 130,72 (0,17%) is left for my Chikara InvestaFoe ES300 scanner-decay.
    From all those PEDs spend I got back 94,71%, or 72747,47, a loss of 4065,26 PED, wich is a bit less then in 2018. This overall year-return is more then previously (again). I'm happy with the result I have. Could I dare to hope for my first solo Über in 2020 and a positive year return at it too? :cyclops:

    With all that hunting done, I managed to into finishing the following missions on Arkadia:
    Stage 1: Mutated Zadul, Mutated Hadraada, Togolossi, Korwil, Yuka :vulcan:
    Stage 2: Navi, Beladoth
    Stage 3: Otorugi, Huon
    Stage 4: Arkadian Hornet, Bokol, Zadul, Tiarak, Ostelok
    Stage 5: Oro, Gallard, Nusul :borg:
    Stage 6: Hadraada (3rd)

    And the many mission completed on Calypso:
    Stage 1: Snarksnot, Neomex, Caudatergus, Primordial Longu, Kreltin, Aurli, Longu, Warrior, Hiryuu, Trooper, Falxangius, Droka, Legionnaire, Ambulimax, Sumima :droid:
    Stage 2: Caudatergus, Berycled, Drone, Kerberos, Snarksnot, Neomex, Merp, Argonaut, Kreltin, Aurli, Atrax, Feffoid, Allophyl/Estophyl, Atrox, Armax, Foul :alien:
    Stage 3: Caudatergus, Snarksnot, Merp, Combibo, Argonaut
    Stage 4
    : Caudatergus, Snarksnot
    Stage 5: Puny, Snarksnot, Shinkiba/Daikiba, Caudatergus :muted:
    Stage 6: none
    Stage 7: none
    Stage 8: Snarg :pompus:

    And there are still so many missions left on Calypso that I want to complete before it's all Codex! Just out of the top of my head: Drone, Araneatrox, Maffoid, Scipulor, Kreltin, Daikiba, Snarksnot, Hispidus, ... and many that I'm forgetting right now.
    In a previous post I said something along the lines of I want to complete at least one Snarg stage everytime I'm hunting on Calypso. Now, however, I'm only at the start of Stage 9 (444 KP of 12.000 done) and the reward is one of the smallest (chipsize / killpoints). Also, my results on Snarg are always quite low (89,61% this year). So, I won't be doing these. Too many other mobs with better rewards left for me to chase.

    Just like last year, I've made two graphs to show how it went from hunt to hunt.
    Ardorjies Hunting 2019-A.png
    Here you can see for each hunt # on the x-axis (first hunt of 2019 is #1, it's not the same as the numbers in this blog, because I've started end of 2015) how much the total return % is for 2018 on the y-axis. The view can be a bit misleading, because there's a huge range in hunting costs. With the cheapest I've only spend 2,77 PEDs (Hunting Calypso Puny with a bunch of small missions done). While the most expense has been a hunt of 1298,02 PEDs (Hunting 298 Bokol & 502 Nusul with Cryogenic Attack Nanochip V (L) + NeoPsion Kinetic Amplifier I (L) & Corrosive Attack Nanochip V (L) + NeoPsion Kinetic Amplifier I (L), with nothing much of interest, yet a well done 100,6% return). Funny thing is, in 2018 the most expensive hunt was also on Bokol & Nusul. Also fun, the return jumps for ~90% to ~95% in one hunt. Guess wich? :roflmao:

    Ardorjies Hunting 2019-B.png
    This graph shows the accumulated hunting costs on the x-axis versus the accumulated return on the y-axis. I fail to see a wave pattern in here, but many that's just me. Do you? :nailbiting::lurking:

    And I want to close this small summary with a top 5 of the best and worst mobs for me in 2019. This is quite flawed, because most of these I've only hunted once or twice (shown here in bold).
    Worst mobs---Best mobs---

    Mutated Beladoth & Mutated Otorugi62,66%Korwil126,33%

    2020 has kicked off ... in quite a bad way. It's like MA is trying to tell me "No way, you're going to end 2020 with positive numbers. Dream on, kid."
    First, when the loot was still quite good, I finished the Iron Molisk and was working on the Snarksnots.
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-01-02 8-40-23.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-01-02 9-31-14.jpg

    I went to Typhon's Reach for the Defenders. I didn't knew about that spot, but didn't liked it either. I was swarmed too much for my liking, not enough Defenders to please me, and I had to wait a quarter of an hour to repeat it on top of that. Ohh, and the loot was horrendeous as well.

    Hurray, I finished an Iron Snarksnot!
    Rank 5 Snarksnot.jpg Stage 6 Snarksnot.jpg

    I've started hunting Berycled Youngs. They weren't high on my to-do-list before, but I was looking for a nice small mob to hunt and they just sort of fitted. I've had only done ~10% of 12k killpoints when I landed back on Calypso, and with only 2 KPs per Young, there's a long way ahead of me. But, they go fast enough and have some good suprises in it for me. Including a very good global!
    2000 Whip.jpg Level 45 Cryogenic (Dmg).jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-01-03 10-55-13.jpg Berycled 003.jpg

    But before I got that nice Bery-global, I've finished the Defenders! I did most of them on the westside of Odysseus Island. I like that spot the most, spawn of Defenders is poor, of course, but where isn't it? It also has Drones there, and that's another mob that I want to complete. (I know, too many that I aim for. I have trouble focussing on just 1 or 2).
    I did Scipulor in between. The good part is that I finished Scip Stage I. The bad part is all the rest; the loot was absent, the defense bill way too high. Could be my own fault for hunting above my level (I underestimated them @lvl 31, got killed few times) and using the wrong weapon (Old skool non-SIB sword).

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (32.0k of 50.0k).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (52 of 65).
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (45.18 of 50.0).
    57. Finished! Finish Molisk Stage 3 (1000 of 1000).
    58. New! Finish Araneatrox Stage 1 (8 of 100). Another one that won't be easy. I tested one, and it worked. A healer would be much welcome for sure.

    During the "many different" hunt #1065 I was flying all over Calypso, noting down where wich mob can be found. Unfortuatly, Entropia is often times much out of date, so I'll have my own list of mob location that I can fall back to for the MatW!

    I have to admit, I like Calypso now kinda equally to Arkadia.
    In 2012 or '13 I was so fed up with Caly that I sold all stacks and emigrated to Arkadia. I hadn't been here before, but I heard about the new Planet Partner and deceided to take my chance. Arkadia was my only reason for playing at that time. Yet now, I'm looking more favorably towards Caly again.

    What have I done this time? Bery! Bery, Bery and more Bery!
    They weren't high on my "missions to complete list" up front, but one day I was looking for a small mob to kill, and well, it so happened that they were my chose.
    For one hunt I found a couple of TT-Mêlée in a heli and killed them with those. (Hint, hint: Check out the Mêlée all the Way! and join the TT-Mêlée hunt 01-feb or one of the other sessions.) Problem is, those weapons do less dmg/sec then the Mindforce chips I was killing them with, and often this happened:
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-01-06 20-59-46.jpg
    Level 3? Sure? I'm not wearing armour for convenience sake, it's more a necessity. I'm more comfortable hunting mid-level Drones lol.

    The reward for the Berycled were 1) Anatomy, 2) Power Fist, 3) Diagnosis (small). Higher on my "missions to complete" are those that give skills like Evade, Perception, Melee Combat, etc. Skills that give good HP and/or are good for Evader/Dodger. So, of course for Iron Berycled III, after all that killing of Youngs for 2 killpoints each up to 12k KP, I choose ...
    Stage 3 Berycled.jpg

    Drone is almost done as well, just need to do one more hunt and I want to see if I can find a destroy high level ones.
    About Drones, sometimes they are smart enough to set a trap for me. Oweko have this behavior sometimes too. One Drone is sort of alone, all others are further then the inner circle of the radar away. I pick that one, storm to it with my blade raised high, yet at the same time the Drone turns around and slowly walks away from me with an air of "talk to the hand, 'cause the face ain't listening". And then, when I catched up to it, the other Drones snap the trap and close me in, like a pincer :drowning: And they call more of their friends, and then it looks like this:
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-01-08 21-15-56.jpg
    Yet, this time it was nice, because the result was:
    Drone 006.jpg

    And now, I guess I'll have to do some Araneatrox. But I kinda have this inate fear of Spiders lol. (Ard, the Mêlée hunter, not me the guy controlling Ard). When I started playing '05 this was a different game. We didn't had vehicles and I didn't had a TP-chip yet. There wasn't much information out, not a guide of how best to do TP runs. Mobs didn't had a level, so you had to learn wich mobs were strong and evil and wich weren't. (I still have Faucervix from this time. Good thing, you wouldn't be fooled by a L3 Bery or L5 Mourner either :blackeye:) When you got stuck at an outpost, you had to escape 'avoiding the red dots'. Some times that was easy, other times more challeging. But most times you could run to the water or back to the outpost with the turret. Yet Spiders ... oh boy! these are so damn agressive. You knew it was one because you saw a red dot on radar coming towards you from the outer edge lol :eek:. Before you could change direction, it was on you and you were death. Death again and again.
    Now, I'll take my revenge! But I'll take it with awe of my nemenis. :spiderman:
