    Let me introduce myself for the 4th time!



    May 15th, 3000-and-something
    Oh no, not again…


    So, I recently got released from the psych ward, made a new account, yes AGAIN, I’m not going to explain myself on that because I already had to to all my friends. AGAIN. I went with similar looks AGAIN and I still got a name which I can show myself as Lizzy Storm with. Oh, and sorry I made a new Ark Forum account AGAIN Dylan.

    So my name now is Lizzy Red Storm.

    I am no longer a member of the IFN, I am now an ‘Arkadia Advisor’ A.K.A. a glorified tour guide. And I am making a new logbook, AGAIN. The formula for the logbook will not really change. I will still post RP, pictures, lame jokes, music, logs, tests, spreadsheets, etc. etc.

    Narf!
    Lizzy Storm.

    Speedy!


    So… I’m such a traitor. I am actually on Calypso! The reason I am here, and I don’t know if anyone remembers, but do you remember those damn Kanin pets? I just got to get the Ruby to level 7 before I go back to Arkadia. And it’s a pointless thing to do because no one wants these pets. No one on Calypso, no one on Arkadia.

    Being on Calypso is also the reason why I have yet to post a new picture of my avatar. I want to have one that looks cool, taken on Arkadia, with my adviser outfit on. All the while I bring you the songs of my people; “WTS KANIN PETS NAO!~”

    So, my time on Calypso is spent on a variety of things. Hunting punies, discovering TP’s, fruit walking, pet leveling and spamming trade. Another thing that I started, even way too late, is the Enigma Keys event. Soon enough I will be one of the many people waiting for stage 3 to be fixed. But I’m not here to talk about any shortcomings. I am writing this because of the rewards. I know I won’t be able to win that grand prize anymore, but there is something else for every participant;
    10% Acceleration. OK, not bad. Jumpsuit. WTF?

    If this jumpsuit functions like all the other jumpsuits we had so far, then it will be unequipped as soon you equip a different piece of clothing or armor. If we look at the Adjusted Harrier, that will only be a 2% speed increase.

    So why would anyone ever what that jumpsuit?

    This PCF post shows you can have a maximum of 25% acceleration through the items category. Pets, Rings and armor fall under that category. Now, look at Social. 10%! Is it a valid theory that the 10% social acceleration buff would come from clothes?

    However… looking at all the options, meh. You can combine so many buffs to get to that maximum of 50% acceleration. (Really, just increased movement speed). But if you use the jumpsuit you probably can’t wear armor. Unless you are an ‘uber’ hunting really slow creatures (Proteron as example), you won’t need armor but speed. But otherwise, WTF are you going to use all that movement speed on?!

    The only reason I am actually considering getting that damn jumpsuit is to be able to show it off, if they ever decide to discontinue the event.

    Advisor

    I couldn't really wait any longer to show off my Advisor Outfit, and I think there are enough people that have yet to see it in it's full glory.

    Yes, I do feel weird walking around in this on Calypso. And as silly as it is, I am not done on Calypso yet (Enigma Event.) Plus I also got 3 stages left to obtain the Refurbished S.I.H.E.A.R.T. VI.
    And not to mention getting my Ruby Kanin to level 7, finishing the calypso punies for evade (7k to go) and trying to actually sell my kanins, but no one seems interested. Anyway, I am still lurking in the Arkadia Chat in case I can help someone.

    Refurbished S.I.H.E.A.R.T. VI


    One of the things I set out to do is to get the Refurbished S.I.H.E.A.R.T. VI on Cyrene, before returning to Arkadia. I wanted that FAP because it is just a really good FAP if you cannot afford the restoration chips, and it can last you a very, very long time hunting. Check out the comparison below.

    The first two stages of the mission requires you to collect some items from creatures that frankly I was not up to doing, so I bought the items from the auction house. The MU for the items for the second stage war quite high, but I guess that Cyrene is suffering from the lack of planet specific drops like Arkadia is too. These items I also bought in advance of coming to Cyrene, because why not?

    Stage three were to kill 250 Weak Paneleon. Those were really easy to kill. Low HP and very high agro made hunting a piece of cake too. It took me about 50 kills to find out there was no need for armor and the 15ped global I got was a nice touch too.

    Now, Young Crystal Pede for stage four were a whole different story. They move really fast making them super annoying for melee to hunt. You really need a rifle to tag them at the least if you are hunting them. And armor. And a FAP. Also, killing a certain number of these will make a Crystal Engorged Pede of 1000 spawn in the area too. Once I left the area there were 6 that I spawned by doing the hunt. I avoided every single one of them, didn’t think it was worth spending the time on them.

    Next stage were Duster Scapegoats. They were humanoids, not goats. And really easy compared to the Pedes. But at this point I am starting to wonder what kind of crystal drugs the creatures of Cyrene are on, because my they all move like they got somewhere better to be. They are zipping around faster than I can run.

    Stage 6. O.M.G. these mobs are just terrible. Puny Nimets. PUNY IS NOT THE WORD I’D GIVE SOMETHING WITH 550HP, but there was also terrible lag that made them moonwalk away from me, making the 4 hour ordeal just worse. They do 100% electric damage so I wasn’t able to use my armor either, so I had to resort to hiring a friend to heal me. Gabriel Gabby Ninetails is who the credits go to!

    Stage 7 and 8, Living vortexes, not too bad. They can swarm you but with the mentor armor they are easy. Zero healing required. And finally, finally I got my FAP completed at the end with these dreadful returns.

    *Returns include the costs of the bones

    What is left to do now is level my Ruby Kanin that no one wants to level 7, 5500 more puny creatures to kill for a little bit of evade and getting that jumpsuit from the Enigma event that I will never use because of my Advisor outfit.

    Here, have some farming music while I reconsider my life's choices.


    Almost forgot the eye candy!

    Loot sux


    Loot sucks! ….. uhu.
    Bad/60% returns! ….. sure. I bet you got that from your non-existent spreadsheet, did ya?
    No MU on loot! ….. well duh, the TT doesn’t give MU.

    Some of the typical excuses. The most entertaining are the people that want an audience with the A-team because “they know how to make the game better because they have X years of experience in Y industry.”

    Dove posted some nice basic info on hunting here, here and here. Also here.

    And here is where I write why your argument is invalid.

    1 Loot sucks.
    It doesn’t. There are people in MA that do their best to balance the loot on needs and wants of the player and MU. The loot sucks in a way only that is not exciting to loot shrapnel and oil residue. Yes we all want UNL crap but that is just uncommon.

    2: Bad returns.
    To get a grip on a mobs drops and returns you want to kill a few thousand of each mob and drop every single penny in an excel sheet or something similar. People often complain about their returns but they are truly just eyeballing things and are unable to prove the numbers they claim to get.

    3: No MU on loot.
    Yeah well, too many people hunt with a budget that is too small to gather big enough stacks for the auction. You got 100 ped and hunt Nusul for an hour and keep seeing your ped decline while dumping all loot in the TT, or you wait till you have 1000 ped and hunt them, and collect stacks for the AH. Patience is a big part of the game.

    Mean Lizzy is stopping with the rant now. I just felt like posting this because things don’t seem to be as they used to be on Arkadia.

    While on Calypso I still have the Arkadia Chat open. I help here and there where I can, but other than that it’s rather quiet. Not many people are chatting anymore. And no chatting is less sharing, less networking. I know there is a bug where some people’s games don’t save the chats they joined. I got it too. What I did is save the channel links in a sticky, and when I log in I join them all. It is annoying, but it works.

    Secondly, I see the same type of questions over and over again. “Where is X mob?” We got Entropia Wiki now instead of the old Entropedia. There is so, so much information to find there. We got a ton of information on the forums too, but it seems that only the usual suspects lurk on the forums now.
