    Jippy-yeah! I got my biggest HOF this easter monday!
    606 PED Wombana Alpha with a full TT Scott & Barlow LB-13 (L) including in it's fat belly. More on that in the Hall of Fame section of this forum.

    Like the last time, I've done a lot of Wombana hunts. I finished Stage 4 and am now about a quarter on the way into Stage 5.
    Stage 4 Wombana.jpg
    But starting with a long Aakas run, looking for Arkoins. This time I did 8x Key #1 (previously it was 3x Key #4). And what a difference that is! Now It took me three evenings to do them all and got roughly the same amount of Arkoins thanks to one lucky loot. I also got my first Rakta global, small accomplicement there.

    And same as last week, I participated in the Mutated Madana HSL at Sentosa's. And this time I won with a 191 PEDder! Before that I got my big Castorian sword to tier 2.0.
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-11 23-0-2.jpg
    Followed by my mistake to try solo'ing Yuka once more. I do slightly better on them now then before I left to Calypso, but not by a long streak. Got two globals, but that was far from enough to get me even close to 90% return.

    Here are all the globals and some other pictures from this time:

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (36.8k of 50.0k).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).

    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (46.87 of 50.0).

    This week I've ranked the skills from the missions from 1 (bad) to 5 (good). Should have done that a long time ago!
    5. General skills that give HP and Evade/Dodge. Examples: Combat Reflexes, Perception
    4. Melee & MF skills that give HP. Examples: Melee Combat, Concentration
    3. Melee & MF skills don't give HP. Examples: Clubs, First Aid
    2. Ranged skills that give HP and the odd one. Examples: Rifle, Vehicle Repairing
    1. Ranged skills that don't give HP. Examples: Laser Weaponry Technology, Aim

    I did same with the missions that I have open and some got out because of bad skills (Nusul - Shortblades), others because I don't ever want to hunt them again (Jori - Dexterity).
    The mobs that are highest on my list are: Kamaldon, Pandi, Wombana and Yuka. Some very tough beast there, not sure if this is a wise move after all!

    I fear my first 4 digit will be on a mob with less then 500 HP lol.

    Results since tracking:
    Mêlée all the Way!: 74,5%
    Mindforce without Remorse!: 23,5%
    Total decay: 252.274,95 PED
    Total loot: 236.330,77 PED

    Oops ... I did it again ...

    Firstly I did some more Wombana, without a super big one this time. I still got a nice global the first hunt.
    Then another Mutated Madana, but they didn't like me this time around.

    I've started the first of four (hopefully) hunts to complete the Korwil mission. Damn, they still hurt me this time. They have no respect for my Liakon + 5D and evader skills, do they?
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-18 23-38-26.jpg Korwil 011.jpg Korwil 012.jpg

    And then, three Aakas Key #4's. On the second try I got this very pleasant suprise on the Dehera end boss:
    Dehera Sentinel 005a.jpg
    Not as big as the Wombana from last time, but I'll take it any day!

    Some more pictures of this time:

    Goals:
    36. Collect Arkoins (46.0k of 50.0k). Another good key run and I might just get there! I've got 3x Key #5 in storage, let's see what those bring.
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000). Nope, still on hold. Thinking about doing it in the summer when I had my vacation planned.
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (56 of 65). Going slow, but steady, and staying at 56 uses/min.
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (46.98 of 50.0). Crawling forwards. Maybe I'll use the club with the next Korwil and/or MuMa hunt.
    61. Finish Korwil Stage 2 (101 of 400).

    Let's talk about Wombana, because I hadn't talked about the enough quite yet. o_O

    This update starts with Wombana hunts. And ends with Wombana hunts.
    In between, ... you guessed it! I went to CP for a sochunt. Because fak staying on Arkadia for longer then one month after a 4,5 month absenty.

    First leg of Wombana hunt got nothing of interest.

    Hunting big Aurli in Dome 4 with the people from NBK was good fun. We got a few good globals. Most times I got the leftover crack or nothing at all. Yet once I got enough to be a little global all by itself.
    Aurli 045.jpg

    The next morning I went down to Calypso to hunt the punies and did a Gauntlet run, while waiting for a socmate to come online to sell low level Mindforce chips too.

    I flew back to Arkadia for more Wombana hunts with horrendeous results.
    But in the end I did get my reward for all the hard work!
    Stage 5 Wombana.jpg

    Now it will be some time again before I'll do another Wombana hunt. Getting quite sick of them lol.

    It's only been, what? one or two weeks and I've got a lot to unpack. Therefore, I cut it in two this time.

    To kick off:
    Smuggler Mech 003.jpg
    I've joined one of the Smuggler fights in the Underground. It was great fun, the picture above shows the biggest HOF that I was a part of. The results were also better then I feared they would have been. Still a loss, but that's oké considering how much I've liked it there. Might do it again soon, but then I've planning ahead like 10 stages in my head and unfortuatly hunting Smugglers don't have a mission -yet.

    Here are some other pictures about the Smuggler hunting ...
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 20-10-1.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 20-19-5.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 20-33-45.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 20-43-57.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 20-48-42.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-7-12 2.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-7-12.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-18-14.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-29-26.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-35-43.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-41-23.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-04-27 21-47-59.jpg

    ... and the globals
    Smuggler Badger 001.jpg Smuggler Mech 001.jpg Smuggler Mech 002.jpg Smuggler Mech 004.jpg Smuggler Mech 005.jpg Smuggler Mech 006.jpg

    Hunting Smugglers also made me complete one of my long standing goals to loot 50k Arkoins and show my allegiance to them. That's right, I looted Arkoins from them, and then gave it back to them with 'some' more.
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-05-03 14-27-57.jpg

    However, hunting Smugglers as Shared Loot also had another consequense. What prompted that was that the last stage I was part off (with Smuggler Mech MK2) gave a global with each kill. That's 25 globals. And likewise with the last sochunt on CP we got I think like 11 globals in total.
    So, I got to thinking that most of them aren't that much of a thing to remember. I got a lot of team globals where I got 2 PED or nothing at all. Because I was at revive, because I was killing another mob, because I had a toy gun, because ... you name it.
    As a result I went through all my globals and removed those where I don't have a worthy share to a new map called "old globals". The ones I kept were a) >25 PED looted ; b) an Item in my loot ; c) an Über HOF.
    With that, I removed almost 30% of my globals. Hard hit are Atrox (46 > 12), Chomper (15 > 2), Formidon (10 > 1), Hogglo (25 > 3), Huon (40 > 23), Oratan Miner (16 > 5), Proteron (12 > 2), Scoria (7 > 1), Togolossi (25 > 11). And for some mobs I now don't have any global left. Such as Caperon, Exarosaur, Frescoquda, Kamaldon, Mulaak'f, Scipulor, TskTsk.

    And now I'm thinking about doing the same with my solo globals. Remove all those with 25 PED or less, unlike there's an item in the loot. I know for sure I won't keep many of 177 Hadraada globals that way lol.

    And for the other part.
    I've hunted Korwil again, but they are just a bit over my comfort zone. So I went for the Pandi, to complete Stage 1 and reap the reward (Dexterity) and then Yuka (Anatomy). I've never hunted Pandi before, but I must say that I quite like them now. I rather feared that I wouldn't, because I don't like the other underwater mobs like RipperSnapper, Jori or Leviathan. These four are the only ones I know about lol.
    If that doesn't work, then I'll go for Oratan (next stage Courage) and Navi (Combat Reflexes). Damnit, I just want to kill some Korwil!

    Goals:
    36. Finished! Collect Arkoins (50.0k of 50.0k).
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (57 of 65).
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (47.71 of 50.0).
    61. Finish Korwil Stage 2 (225 of 400).
    62. New! Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1). Now the Smugglers want me to make the Underground saver by killing lots and lots (Stage 6) of Badgers, Togolossi, Wombana and Navi. I got the Wombanan ready to start with Stage 6, and hopefully Navi won't be long in following. If there's still time left before Codex start I think I'll do Togo 3rd.

    I've got a lot to talk about and to show off about once again.
    Pandi Stage 1 done!
    Stage 1 Pandi.jpg
    I've done some smaller hunts before the last Pandi hunt on Zadul and Oratan, finishing Stage 3 on the latter as well.

    And then I went to the Yuka. Autch! They hurt. Like, hurt a lot and often. When going for them solo, I learned to avoid anything above a Young. Yet even then, them crits often send me to the revive. I've had a few hunts with a healer as well, and that really makes all the difference. Thanks to those who helped me out!
    I have completed Stage 2 Yuka now too, yet for this update I'll write for it a few hunts short of it.
    The Yuka loot is suprisingly good. I've gotten some damn fine globals like these two:
    Yuka 009.jpg Yuka 012.jpg
    Here's some more pictures of the globals and other random shit I took all along the way.
    Oratan 004.jpg Pandi 016.jpg Pandi 017.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-05-09 12-10-19.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-05-15 20-38-46.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2020-05-15 21-16-3.jpg Yuka 008.jpg Yuka 010.jpg Yuka 011.jpg Yuka 013.jpg Yuka 014.jpg Yuka 015.jpg Yuka 016.jpg Yuka 017.jpg Yuka 018.jpg Yuka 019.jpg Yuka 020.jpg Yuka 021.jpg

    Another thing I did is that I went, once again, over all my global pics with a critical eye. Now I've removed all solo globals with less then 25 PED too, unless it has an item in it. I still have close to 700 over, but that came from 1148. Of those 700 Hadraada has the biggest share with 97 globals (it was 177)!

    Goals:
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (58 of 65).
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (48.09 of 50.0).
    61. Finish Korwil Stage 2 (225 of 400).
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).

    I'm making progress now.
    Yuka Stage 2 is done. I like them, but I think I'll leave them alone now untill Codex comes.
    Korwil Stage 2 is done, it went a lot better then before the Pandi and Yuka. I do want to have another go at them and finish Stage 3 before Codex, if I might.
    Oratan Stage 4 is done. I'll probably won't start Stage 5 before Codex.

    Stage 2 Yuka.jpg Stage 2 Korwil.jpg Stage 4 Oratan.jpg

    I've also done a few Zadul hunts now. On the one hand they're just a fun little mob to hunt when I don't have much time, or when I don't want anything bigger. On the other hand, I could have gone for Tiarak better, mission reward wise. But I'll stick with them, I think.

    Some of my better globals from this update are:
    Yuka 022.jpg Korwil 018.jpg Oratan Miner 007.jpg

    Goals:
    46. Visit Arkadia Moon and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (58 of 65).
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (48.51 of 50.0).
    61. Completed! Finish Korwil Stage 2 (400).
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    63. New! Finish GMC_03_Gamma Stage 1 (0 of 100). I think I've killed 4, or something like that? Less then 10, I remember them as something evil that would kill me the first time I visited the Moon and hunted Oompa and Warhounds. That was ~1,5 year ago, so I suspect I can take them on now with more convidence.

    One thing that I'll be doing different from now on in my log is that I no longer will note the cost and returns down to the PEC. I still have it in my Excell (OpenOffice) sheet, just not here. Same goes for the result, no decimals there no more.

    It's going good at the moment.
    In two more runs I finished the current Navi Stage.
    Stage 3 Navi.jpg Navi 022.jpg Navi 023.jpg

    I did one more Zadul hunt, I'm now well over 1/10th done with just the leisure hunting. It gives me a bit of confidence that I can get it done before Codex comes to Ark.
    And then I flew to the moon. They have seperate missions now for the three types of Sicarius (Worker, Brute and Commander). I finished the Worker's Stage 3 and Brute Stage 1. Brute S1 has the same reward as Worker S1, so I'm curious if that's also true for Commanders and for all stages?
    Sicarius Worker 001.jpg Sicarius Worker 002.jpg

    I do want to complete the Commander S1 too at least. Maybe I'll do them first and then I'll start to test how I do against the GMC_Gammas.
    After these Sicarius I did something odd, odd for me. I took a BLP Rifle that I looted earlier from a Navi and started shooting with it. I finished the Oompa S3 and when it broke I took my Cryo chip and did the same to the Warhounds.
    Stage 3 Oompa.jpg Stage 3 Warhound.jpg

    I just hope the loot will catch up lol.

    Goals:

    The loot did catch up, with some pretty good runs on the GMC's.
    But first I did S1 Sicarius Commanders. Yes, same reward as the other two. Later on I finished S2 Sicarius Brute as well, and again it had the same reward as the Workers do. Funny thing, the last kill on the S2 Brute was a global, and a damn fine one at that too.
    Sicarius Brute 002.jpg
    I think this is rather a shame. From the story and information from scanning I get the impression that the Sicarius is some kind of hive-like insect creature. In that regard, workers, brutes and commanders do make sense. Also the very different outlooks of all three Sicarius is cool. Yet we see here three different spots for three morphologies of the same species. You won't see worker ants cutting leaves meters away from the soldier ants whos job it is to protect them.

    So yeah, the GMC's. They are bad. They kill me. And sometimes they give a good loot in return, like this one:
    GMC 03 Gamma 006.jpg
    Other GMC globals are:
    GMC 03 Gamma 001.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 002.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 003.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 004.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 005.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 007.jpg GMC 03 Gamma 008.jpg
    One even game me a small ESI! Not in any global, and I was so flabbergasted that I forgot to take a pic lol.

    Another good thing about these Gamma's is that I've finished S1, and S2 as well.
    Stage 2 GMC Gamma.jpg

    I've started opening boxes when I got to Ark Moon. I found my first ring there, an Hermetic Augmented that I've sold for ~TT+250. I'm happy!

    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    63. Completed! Finish GMC_03_Gamma Stage 1 (100).
    64. New! Finish Navi Stage 4 (0 of 40.000). I gotta get back to the Navi again after I'm done here on Ark Moon (S3 done for all three Sicarius and maybe GMC too). I think I'll try to do them with some Zadul and/or Korwil alongsides.

    I know, it looks odd. Last time I had 1k more total loot and ~1.5% better results. What it is, is that some how I've copy-pasted other cells with far different values over the hunting results of ~20 hunts done in 2018.
    I don't know either how or why.

    Lots of good things happening right now.
    I went back to the planet again, after finishing Sicarius Brute S3 and Commander S2. On the last Brute hunt the globals just kept coming.

    Arkadia must love me back down again, because I got another ESI at the start of the first hunt in the Underground! And this time I did take a screenshot:
    PRINT SCREEN 2020-06-26 20-8-28.jpg
    Loot was bad that run for all other Navi's, but I'm happy with the ESI lol.

    Last hunt on Navi also was good with some good globals and two BLP guns looted.

    Goals:

    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (49.21 of 50.0).
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    64. Finish Navi Stage 4 (5614 of 40.000).
    65. New! Visit Next Island & Ancient Greece and spend 10.000 PED (0 of 10.000). It might get a bit old, but first I fail to come up with a good personal goal otherwise. And second, I have bought some Ancient Greek Shares, and while I do believe them to fall into my "not so wise spendings", I do want to go visit that place that I got the shares from. See this as a personal mission chain to visit all places in this here Universe.

    And now for some exciting 'news' about the little results I always post at the end of each update.
    I am talking about this part (copy from previous post):
    Mêlée all the Way!: 74,5%
    Mindforce without Remorse!: 23,2%

    The way I used to do it was that I had a long list of every hunt and the weapons used. That table was split into three parts: Mêlée, Mindforce and Ranged. Each was split again into three columns, for example a) Mêlée, b) Mêlée + Ranged, c) Mêlée + MindForce. Making it nine columns in total. I then manually copied the weapon ped-value into the respected column. For example hunt #1243 would be Mêlée + MindForce. Excell did the rest, adding all values for the three main proffessions. With a value of 0.92 if it was with another type as finisher and 0.08 if it was used as a finisher.
    But this has some obvious flaws. I tracked it for a couple of hunts, and the impact of the finisher/ 2nd weapon is anywhere between 1 and 15% (making 0.08 or 8% fit in, true).

    But now I'll do it differently. I've spend some time to figure out a formula for a chipvalue. I don't have one true formula, I'm using 8 different yet similar in the range from 1 to 10.000 skills. Now I'll calculate it backwards, from a skillpoint to a chipvalue. For Mêlée I use five skills (Longblades, Clubs, Power Fist, Shortblades and Whip). For Ranged I use four (Aim, Handgun, Rifle, Support Weapon Systems) and for MindForce just two (Concentration and Power Catalyst).
    Since each skill contributes a part for its respected proffession and smaller part for the main proffession, one can calculate how much those skills contribute to Mêlée, Ranged and MindForce. That is 6,4000% ; 6,5577% and 6,5000%. Using those values, I can then calculate how much the value (in chipsize) is of each three. There is some bit of overlap of course, this is a hypothetical value. And the last step is to add all three and then calculate how good one is.
    This has its flaws too of course, skill rewards come to mind at first. But since I will take a skill that fits me best, this will show how much I spend, and have spend, on each of the three main hunting proffessions.

    And it's quite different from how I first calculated it. My playing style was different in the past. Starting with only Mêlée untill I switched to the Opalo and Marber.

    Results since tracking:
    Mêlée : 84,3%
    Mindforce : 8,4%
    Ranged : 7,3%
    Total decay: 306k PED
    Total loot: 280k PED
    Result: 91,48%

    A week of vacation and so it's a week with a lot of Entropia, due to still a partly lockdown (yet douable) here in the Netherlands and the weather not being all that great.

    I've come to the conclusion to sell a large part of my mêlée collection. Long story short: it's not worth the time and especially not the PEDs.
    I made a selling thread. Now I just need to think about shouting out in #ArkTrade more lol.

    Someone is intrested in the Force Mace Assail, but didn't quite like it that I had it at full TT. That's somewhere near the 2.5k :roflmao:
    To reduce the TT value I've been hunting with that mace for the last days. Using it on the small Zaduls. Now I'm sick of both of them lol. I still need ~5k more Zaduls, not sure if I can make it before Codex. I sure hope I do, because my current stage doesn't have a much intresting reward, but the next one has.

    Talking about Codex, the closer it gets, the more I think about all the mobs that I want to complete just one more mission on. Huon, Kadra, Bokol, Navi, Tiarak, Otorugi, Korwil, Sicarius Commander, ....

    The loot has been shit. Can't say it in any other words. I kinda think it's due to the Migration coming today (?) to Caly. MA holding back tens of thousands of loot, to give it all away in 1 or 2 massive Eomon ATHs.

    Goals:
    50. Max out Songkra Corrosive Dagger (59 of 65).
    56. Get to level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg) (49.79 of 50.0).
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    64. Finish Navi Stage 4 (9843 of 40.000).

    It's ironic, but the closer we get to the implemantation of Codex on Arkadia, the more diverce my hunting becomes. I'm currently working on three missions:
    Korwil : <50% of 1200 kills
    Navi : <50% of 20k killpoints
    Zadul : ~75% of 12.000 kills
    I think it will be hard for me to complete all three on time, we'll see.
    Maybe I do stop at 95% for all in the end?! :walkingdead:

    The first hunts of this update was on the Korwils. And it all ended with a new #1 and #3 ... . ehh .... #4 personal HOF on Tracker! My über comes in pieces. On that same hunt I also got to this mark:
    Level 50 One Handed Clubber (Dmg).jpg

    Then I took a Piron rifle that I looted about two weeks ago on Navi and started shooting the Zaduls. The loot remained quite well, with another profitable hunt to end it.
    2020-07-13 -- Zadul Provider 29 PED a.jpg Level 40 Ranged BLP (Dmg).jpg

    And last I did two runs on the Navi to end this update, looting another Piron rifle to shoot with.

    65. Visit Next Island & Ancient Greece and spend 10.000 PED (0 of 10.000).
    66. New! Get to level 50 Knifefighter (Hit) (47.82 of 50.00). Another skill goal to aim for. It's tight to maxing the Songkra, because that one will be done at lvl 49 lol. I was also thinking about going for level 40 Evader, but I think that's still a leap to far considering that I'm only at 34 right now.

    I'm hard at work right now to complete the Navi S4 first, and then probably go for the Zadul S5 next. I only need 1k of the first, and a bit over 2k for the latter.

    All that Navi hunting (and first Zadul) has gotten me these lovely globals:

    Navi Stage 4: Done!
    Zadul Stage 5: Done!
    Korwil Stage 3: Hard working ...
    Stage 4 Navi.jpg Stage 5 Zadul.jpg

    Navi ended with a nice positive result, thanks to a good global. The Zaduls were all bad, but it turned again with the first two Korwil hunts. Scoring two globals above 250 PED in the first one!

    I also got the 6000 Clubs milestone on one of the Korwil hunts:
    6000 Clubs.jpg

    And dropping a probe now and then gave me this global as well:

    66. Get to level 50 Knifefighter (Hit) (48.35 of 50.00).
    67. New! Finish Madana Stage 3 (475 of 1.200). Not knowing how much time I have left, and struggling to think what the right mob could be. These will give me Weapon Handling for this stage, and Alertness for the upcoming. Other mobs high on the list are Defense Bots (Longblades & Powerfist), Mutated Nusul (Shortblades and Anatomy), Sicarius Commander (Alertness), Oratan (Dodge and more Dodge), GMC Gamma (unknowns) or Pandi (Athletics and Combat Reflexes).

    The Korwils I can do fast enough, I presume. I need a little over 200 more kills, before the end of next week this will be done. This weekend I'm going to Calypso again for a short trip and an NBK sochunt.

    Entropia is defiatly on the uptake for me.
    Last friday I flew to Calypso on a 3+ hour flight with my Sleipnir and being destroyed by a ztopid pirat and a Cosmic Horror. I spend the rest of the evening looking for clothes to buy and hunting punies.
    Puny, as in tiny, smaller then little ... except I still need armour to survive them lol. Daikiba pubs and the others are highly agressive too lol.

    That night I couldn't get to sleep. I spend the first three hours in a state of half asleep / half awake. In the end I woke up and turned on the computer to do ... what?
    Let's see what the Dailies are: 3x F... Faucervix, Fungoid & Formicacida.
    I hate Fauc since the first moment they ran up to this little orange jumper me like the beardogs that they are. Even now I rather avoid them, then having to kill just a single one.
    The Fungoids were good though, with a few PECs in profit and the Ants weren't too bad either, with a few PEDs in loss and a nice global.

    After those hunts I tried to catch some sleep again. Gave up after 15 minutes and took a long walk in the dark. It's cool to do, everything is so much different at midnight.
    Afterwards I finally did get some sleep, only to wake way too early again and went back to the punies. Nothing special this time.

    In the afternoon we came together for a NBK teamhunt with small rifles. It was fun to do, even though the loot was simple absent. We started with Proterons and later went to the Longtooths. There I realized that I'm halfway done with Stage 1, 24 of 50 kills! So after the hunt I finished those bastards. Loot still sucked, not sure if that was really worth the effort or not.

    I've also made a good progress, because of the Daily Formicacida, so I deceided to finish their Stage 1 as well. Turned out with a few PECs profit this time, and a nice skill reward. I'm happy I've done this one.

    I had about 1,5 hours left on Caly, because of an Auctionbid and waiting for a secure flight back. So I went for something complete different: Nexnecis. I've hunted mainly mobs that have a good reward in the current stage, or the upcoming to prepare for the arrival of Codex. Ofcourse, I've also done more then enough Caly missions just for that purpose. So, this time it was refreshing to hunt something for the sole reason that I wanted to hunt Nexnecis. I got a nice global, but otherwise the loot wasn't all that fine. Still, I'm happy that I did this one.

    I didn't want to log out just yet when I got back on Ark. So I went back to the Korwils for one small hunt. It turned out to be one small hunt with one big global. I would have made a profit if even all the other Korwils were a this creature didn't carry any loot as in the past.

    On sunday and monday I needed to do a total of three more Korwil-hunts before I could finish Stage 3. Sunday evening was good with a total of four globals, including a nice 225 PEDder.

    On monday I got a big one again, and same as the late saturday hunt, it was an instant-profit-global. You just gotta love those!

    My Vehicle Repairing skills multiplied by a dozen when I went to collect the reward. And what I didn't realized back then: I've unlocked Blueprint Comprehension! Hurray!

    I'm now on Ark Moon to get the Sicarius Commanders at the same stage as the other Sicarius. Should be no problem to finish them before the end of this week.
    Then I'm in the Underground again to finish Navi Stage 5. And hopefully I'll have that done before Codex. I did Stage 4 from 01 june to 24 july, or 7 weeks and 4 days. But in those almost 2 months I also hunted a) 8775 Zaduls, b) 500 Sicarius Workers, c) 800 Sicarius Brutes, d) 681 Oompa, e) 356 Warhounds, f) 301 GMC 03 Gammas, g) 298 Sicarius Commanders and h) 585 Korwils.
