    Some of you know me…Some of you have been seeing my name HOFing a lot in key 9 instances. Following MM, I decided to permanently restation on Arkadia and help out this planet the best I can. Additionally, I’m tired of the poor hunting experiences on Calypso and sadly CP (although I very much enjoyed CP)..As I am yet to have a hunting uber.


    So my wife and I will be grinding out (perhaps with some coin buying) all 15 million arkoins by doing key runs. I will also be streaming my runs on twitch TV, which will be in my signature when I get home.
    I will be posting my run results here and on my blog when it is ready. I’ve already done approximately 25 runs thus far.


    Opportunities:

    • Selling Keys 1-10 – will give discounts if you sell me your arkoins to me @ weekly MU (Place order via PM or in-game)
    • Buying Arkoins @ Weekly MU
    • Selling Terra Amps 1, 2, 4, 6, D-Class, and Level 1-3, 5, 8, 9 Calypso Amplifiers (place order via PM or in-game)

    Hired Hunting
    Want to be a hired hunter? Here is an opportunity -

    • I will sell keys to you for a certain amount under weekly markup (see below chart)
    • I will buy arkoins from you for a certain amount over weekly markup (see below chart)
    My objective here is to get coins and close the loss gap for each run so that hunting/instance running on Arkadia can be break even at worse and most of all: fun.


    Bonuses
    Free Keys

    • Get 1 point for every 10,000 coins turned in.

    • 15 Points - Terra Amp 1 (L) - (Unlimited left)
    • 25 Points - 1 Arkadia Underground Land Deed
    • 50 Points - Detpil Rv 1000 (L) Rocket Launcher - (Unlimited left)
    • 125 Points - Kulokhar Glacier Sword (1 left)
    • 150 Points - Khorum Ice Dagger (1 left)
    • 150 Points - Songkra Corrosive Dagger (1 left)

    • 250 Points - Dehera Immolation Sword (1 left)

    • > 5 Points Overall – Paying Weekly + 3%* + 10% off MU of keys
    • > 10 Points in 1 Week – Paying Weekly + 5%** + 25% off MU of keys
    • > 20 Points in 1 Week – Paying Weekly + 10%** + 50% off MU on keys

    Let’s do it up!

    Best of luck to you, and glad your new home is Arkadia :) It'll be a tough grind for sure, but definitely very rewarding at the end!

    GL and don't be afraid to buy them as well... arkoin MU is at an all time low right now so we need more buyers and I guarantee you it will be cheaper to buy than to run the instances for arkoins.

    As I intend to buy some... I'd rather grind because if I dont, I'll run out of ped faster with 50% tt hunts... which seems to be always. Additionally, the cost of instances can easily be offset by items and armor.

    Feel free to sell me some supplies :)

    I'm also interested in a booth or shop if anyone wants to sell an estate.

    You almost got me thinking loot was finally 'fixed' on them after a year and a half, but then I noticed you didn't include the key's tt :)
    Maybe the tt losses in the instances will get compensated with hofs hunting outside of the instance, else you'll have to be able to deposit a lot to get that LA.

    GL!

    Well apparently that is the case. However, seems like I am getting ubers outside of the instance now but can't get any coins in an instance :(

    Taking a mini break. All runs yield no coins for me. Maybe I shouldn't have posted this thread :p

    Updated today's runs.

    You were lucky to start your runs in an unusually productive cycle when arkoins and items were dropping at a higher than normal rate.
