    Entry 32 : The Universe


    With 6 planets, a moon and an asteroid the Entropia Universe it larger than it sounds. With approximately 10.000 colonists there is more than enough room for everyone, and room for many more.

    Yet again I return from Calypso, I promise it is the last time. Finished the first stage of Mission Galactica on my way back to Arkadia. This time I finally wanted to return to Arkadia with a level 7 bunny, but I just really cannot do it. I cannot stand around on a planet, or explore all day, just to level a pet.

    If you don’t know that I am privy to Arkadia; I am. There are multiple reasons of course, and it is partly due to the fact I spend most of my time here. I know this planet. I like to pretend I know what I’m doing, because even I made a few mistakes here and there. I can map out my activities and goals for days, weeks or even months ahead because I know what the end goal is. I know where to find most creatures and I know what I am capable of.

    On other planets, not always as much on Calypso though, I get lost. I don’t know what to hunt and where to find creatures. Spawns are mixed or too dangerous to cross, just in an attempt to find fitting hunting grounds. Of course there are options of taking a flying vehicle to move my bubblebutt to set destinations, but that takes away the fun of exploring. On a new planet I’d be the same noob I was many moons ago on Arkadia.
    I did do some exploring on Calypso however, mostly to spend my time running for TP’s and training my bunny. If that is something you are interested in for the same reasons as me or for another, check out these maps: [Calypso TP map] [Amethera map]

    caly 1.png caly 2.png caly 3.png

    I think most of all, I don’t know anyone on other planets. I have found and lost friends on Arkadia, and when you get many friends on the planet you are stationed, you learn from each other. I don’t have life lines like that on other planets. It doesn’t bother me, because for many more moons to come I will have my work cut out for me on Arkadia.

    Each player haves a favorite planet, a favorite creature, blueprint or mining spot. I don’t mind, I cannot make everyone love Arkadia. Hell, my current clothes are ‘old skool’ Calypso. The bunny’s are Calypso. I’d love some mining resources from RT to decorate my apartment with. Cyrene got some nice healing tools before one steps up to the MF chips. Toulan is a beautiful place to explore. Next Island, however seemingly not being developed due to rampaging monkeys, still got very promising premises. And not to mention all the furniture pieces that are available from each and every planet that will drain my PED card like no other if I go on a shopping spree.

    So yes, the universe is larger than Arkadia to me, but only for temporary objectives.

    Now that I am back on Arkadia, I set a new goal/challenge for myself. Since I’m fully stepping off the idea of having pets, I’m going back to trying to sell them all instead of putting them in the pet blender as I have no use for pet essences. Instead I am going to spend some of my summer time on fruit walking, sweating (bleh) and Arkadian Hornet and Oratan (daily) hunting. All the while I try to maximize my income in a non-deposit setting to earn enough to obtain a Hermetic Ring Perfected.

    Entry 33 : Aakas 1


    I have done a lot of Aakas dungeons in the past, and I still love doing them. I crafted some keys and with the help of AlfaOmega they were turned into mini keys, I got a key gifted and I bought one and still have a bid on one on the auction.

    I’m tracking every single run, and from the third run I started tracking loot too. Loot was a bit ‘meh’. After 6 runs I was 36 ped down. And then this little beauty came!

    aakas 1.png

    203ped loot from a Dehera Attacker, the final boss. I don’t know where the key exactly came from, but when I had a global I’d had to think of MadHatter (per request), think of AlfaOmega because he enabled me a farm day of Aakas 1.

    Now, it’s to log this run and do the other 9 keys I have in my inventory!

    Oh, and the end goal... let's say I want to give the impossible missions a shot! :D

    *edit*
    The first run I did right after gave me this!

    Entry 34 : Adapt or die


    I might need to change some things around again. With the current changes in the loot I get a ton of shrapnel that seemingly no one seems to be buying anymore. With the introduction of a blueprint to craft shrapnel, even less will be traded. Adding to that with all the Aakas Keys I will craft it makes it rather clear. I should swap to ranged combat to improve my cycling.

    Now, the big question is, will I do it? And if so, will I got laser or BLP? Will I go rifle or pistol?

    Firstly, looking at my skills, I have most skills in laser weaponry. So that kind of settles that question. Seconly, in the past I’ve mostly hunted with pistol over rifle. No clear reason as to why, but I think that would feel best for me.

    So, Laser Pistoleer it will be. After Hornets I got 3 more puny missions I can farm, should give me enough skills to get me a nice gun to replace my Khorum Ice Dagger with. I won’t do away with the dagger before I got a suitable replacement. So for a while I will still be skilling with shortblades on the side. Maybe I’m going to look at the Herman CAP’s again.
    The skills are not lost on me either. The strength enables me to carry a boatload of loot. The melee skills are very nice for HP gains too. It will not be until the point I start looting ESI’s that I will think of chipping out skills that I don’t use or see no fit use for.

    On another note, I’m starting to get pissed off at the items I got that I can’t seem to get rid of. Mostly the pets. I don’t even think I am asking too much for them as no one even tried to haggle. So that’s a few hundred ped stuck in pets, and I can’t do anything about it.
    Also I’m starting to wonder where all the crafters are. I remember it being easier to find a tailor or designer to sell hunting loot to. (Hides, leathers, extractors, paints, wools.) We don’t even have a trader/reseller on Arkadia other than Marty, and I don’t do mining.
    It’s probably down to Arkadia needing more Colonists, and with the Migration expected to start soon, I don’t think I will see any changes till after summer.

    My new themesong.

    I dual-wield laser pistol and knife for this very reason - so I can cycle my own shrapnel. Maybe consider not letting go of your knife just yet.

    Oh, I'm not planning to any time soon, but for now I do have a way to get rid of the shrapnel I have with the E.L.M. knife and tt pistol for the puny missions. Just in the long run the E.L.M. knife will lose it's worth on higher hp mobs, same with the tt pistol. So I'm basically looking beyond that.
    Also, with some help of a friend, I sold my uni ammo from the aakas key convertions through a (for him) complicated trade. But again, if I also go up in aakas difficulty, that might prove an issue too.

    Entry 35 : Arkadian Hornet Conqueror


    After casual hunting and heavy grinding I finished the Arkadian Hornet mission chain!

    hornet.png

    Here are some details on my tracking. I didn't start tracking since Loot 2.0, so the results are from only 8332 kills.

    hornet 2.png

    That’s two down, 5 to go. (Monura Male, Monura Female, Gallard, Rakta & Yarrijak left) A good selection of puny mobs I can farm away my Universal Ammo with. I count Yarrijak as Puny too, seeing as Aakas 1 contains mostly the youngs at 10 hp, and only one or two matures.

    So the plan for the next month is to start, and maybe even finish the Monura Male mission. Along with more Aakas 1 farming. Some SSI and some fruit walking. Very maybe a Batsim if I feel like it too.

    I got weapons (tt + unl ice dagger) for pretty much 10 missions, so I'm good on weaponry. I'm more looking at the cap-20 right now for the mobs of over 300hp on my list.

    So thank you, but no thnx.

    Entry 36 : Luck of the Lizzy


    So, for some time now there has been something people say. I thought it was localized in the group chat I am in in game, but now others are saying it too! Earlier I got this lovely little global with a blueprint that got a MU to die for. [Vehicle RK-20 (L) Blueprint (L)] ~18000% MU, 98 clicks.


    2017-07-01 -- Arkadian Key 1 119 PED .jpg

    Now, I like to inform people of my luck, and this time it was also a little bit to gauge for interest on the two blueprints I looted. Among the usual reactions, I got this:

    luck of lizzy.png

    Now, as far as I know, these two people don’t know each other. But it’s spreading. If this continues I will need to make mugs and t-shirts with this statement. Become a universe-wide one-line-design-wonder and tell the tale about my possibly lucky avatar. (I just think it’s nothing but being in the right place at the right time.)

    PM me if you want a mug or shirt for shits and giggles, honest to Lootius I will make a spreadshirt shop and provide you with idiotic items plastered with the “luck of the Lizzy” statement.

    For a while I thought you were referring to this video San - it certainly features luck & determination :)

    It looks like that Iguana has vastly improved agility and acceleration. I wonder where we can tame one. ;)

    That is certainly a viable definition of luck.

    Entry 37 : Frustrations


    Ugh, going back to Calypso. For one reason. To get rid of these FUCKING PETS that no one wants, and some other crap. It has been frustrating me to no end that no one has even showed interest in my pets. I’m serious, I’m starting to hate pets more than being on Calypso. No more pets for me.

    Also the luck of the Lizzy has ended and I lost 1k PED in crafting and mining, typical yet painful. I just wanted to get rid of the universal ammo fast, since I now have 71 keys to run and while doing it with melee, none of that universal ammo would be going anywhere any time soon. But with a limited PED card, those keys won’t be going anywhere soon either.

    So far in the new month I have completed 10 Aakas 1 runs, part of my test to see if it’s worth farming it and partly to make my first baby steps towards progression into the ‘impossible missions’ from Aakas. So far these 10 runs yielded me with 71,30% returns. That is not good. My (insane) roadmap for doing the impossible missions in Aakas would see me try to do 2.500 runs per Aakas door. With an average cost of 24,19 PED per run (lowering it to 24 since eventually defense skills will lower decay), and 2479 runs to go in Aakas one, my loss will be around…. HOLY COW! Rounded down that will be 41k PED. BUT! That is ONLY if I do not get a single global/HoF EVER.

    Luck of the Lizzy should save me there.

    And these impossible missions? Magurg Female and Dehera Sentinels. Not until Aakas 9 and 10 will you get more than 1 of each per run. With the Magurg Female mission and the Dehera Sentinels you need to get 18.000 kills, without adding stage 6 in the count as those are kill point missions and no one knows how much you get per maturity. So technically, redoing some math, I would only have to do 2.000 runs per Aakas door. FML. That is still a boatload. Now if only I could push the ACA to implement a tiny Rakta stage 6 mission so I can rake in extra tiny bits of skills farming this. Hell, a part of me doesn’t want them to change the other ‘impossible’ missions, how cool would it be to be the first and probably only person finishing the hellish grind in Aakas? Plus, it would be really nice to loot 1 or more Core Card #11 by handing in all those damn keys. 18.000+ chances to get one, hope RNG won’t screw me over on that one!

    Yes, I craft my own keys, and I also got two magnificent loots inside Aakas 1 already. And previous tests showed that in the long run only the key costs at 2 PED would be the average loss per run. Of course it will take a ton more testing to figure this all out in the current system, but doing solo runs on pretty much 90% puny mobs in Aakas will not help my case, even though puny loots have seem to be improved for me since Loot 2.0.

    Finishing Monura Male will probably not happen this month. I’m on stage 4 with 1500 kills left to do. The trophy head can wait as it will only serve as decoration in my massive display storage called Valiant Firebase Apartment #10.

    Will my pets and other crap sell on Calypso? No clue. I am giving it a shot anyway, even though people probably don’t want to spend PED on anything that is not related to Longtooth or Eomon killing. Will I be bored? Fuck yeah. All for the greater good or something.

    Here, have some music:

    This is just MA building you up for an ATH. :p


    And yes, pets are very difficult to sell.

    I think your answer relates to this on Ark. While I like pets and would like a 'better' kanin the thought of having to level them on Calypso is seriously depressing.
    There are also a lot of pets for sale at present, so supply outstrips demand (although yours are well priced).
    Perchance someone hunting Eomon or Longtooth on Caly will bear levelling a pet at the same time given that they have to be there anyway. :2pec:

    Yeah, I'm leveling the bunny's while on calypso now. Might as well try to get them to 7 and then go back to Arkadia so people might be more inclined to buy them as they can be spawned. I just don't like the idea right now of having to feed them as that will not only drive up the costs of the pets, but also makes me put ped into items of which I don't know if they ever sell.

    I need a break from this BS. Can't sell pets and MA stole my money. I got better things to do with my time right now.
