    December is here and I've set the (unachievable?) goal of getting Brawler Hit level 20 before the month is over. My targets are Young and Mature Ostelok, because they have shown to be more profitable than other low mob choices (in my current opinion).

    I play mainly weekends, but with the upcoming holiday it might just work out.
    Other skill gains, along with decay cost and such, will be tracked and announced whenever possible.

    Comment
    Apparently Murphy's Law rules. Saying Ostelok is profitable makes MA take some of it back. Better luck next time.

    Loot was better today. Current average TT return is 97%. Estimated cost to finish Stage 3 lands at 160 PED.

    Comment
    Shoot me now! Extremely short session due to absolute crap loot. Session TT return was only 56.10%, with a "whooping" 59.50% MU return. I know this log is for skill increase, but I sure as hell will not go on when the main return is nova/blazar mixed with constant 'no looters'.

    To be continued later today or tomorrow. :mad:

    Comment
    A good session. It started with a few 1 PED loot that put me in full profit, and then slowly dwindled to nova/blazar, no looters and below 8 pec return. 91.15% return. 111% if counting MU. I had 1 skill boost that lasted 10 minutes, which is far longer than any I've ever had.
    I have no complaints.

    Slow progress. The only skill boost was for rifles. Uncool.

    Boring as hell. Got a 5-6 minute skill boost though. Added 1 Piron PBP-2 (L) to the already dusting pile of fire arms. If only a weapon-monger would trade powerfists for them all... I'd be very, VERY happy. Excited even... *hint hint*

    Got a 5 minute skill boost. No interesting loot whatsoever. Little over 1/4th through the mission. But it won't take me to level 20 Brawler Hit.

    Due to request I have updated each session post with more detailed Cost data.
    I have also received a request of adding the exact skill point gain in Power Fist, so I will do that from now on.
    Also corrected a decay error in Session 5. It was 30 pec higher than stated (forgot to add ammo cost). :stats:

    1 Brawler skill boost of 5 minutes. Today's return was almost 94%, which is totally acceptable.

    Comment
    1 Brawler skill boost of 9.5 minutes. Half-way through the mission! Always something. I'm getting quite fed up with the poor hit boxes of these creatures. They need to be taken head-on, not from the side or behind, or else the system will spam "Failure" messages. Also... I have now started to aggro without hitting when I see the foul fowls dance about and walking side-ways. Don't want to add to the decay cost more than necessary by having the little :poop:s regenerate health.

    1 Brawler skill boost 11 minutes long. Wasn't able to use it fully due to keen Olds in the area forcing me to escape into my Sleipnir a few times. Loot was so-so, 80% return (84% with daily MU). Totally unmotivated today. Sorry.

    Comment
    Focus was not on the game, it was on the Swedish Christmas Calendar and 'A Thousand Years to Christmas Eve'. But I seem to have done well still. 1 skill bost of 5 minutes. Too much ammo spent and crappy skill point increase. Below average returns. Guess I scared away the good loot wearing my newly bought Christmas Mittens and wearing that silly holiday hat...

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    FELIZ NAVIDAD!

    No brawler boosts, no fruit, no tiers, no globals. MA ate my profit from yesterday and took some added value.

    Comment
    A 5 minute brawler skill boost along with a cooperative colonist taking out everything but youngs and matures = :thumbsup:.
    The skill increase in itself was poor compared to previous sessions. I'm just happy Ostelok stage 3 is now over.

    Comment
    I have to say this was quite educational. I have never bothered to track skill points and this showed me just how slowly they increase.
    To those who have followed this (with interest), I hope it gave you some insight, like it did me. Use the data as you wish but don't refer to me as some expert on power fists. I just like the profession. :smuggrin:
