    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.

    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (51 of 65).
    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.
