A while ago I decided to create a log of my progress so I can see how long it will take me to cross the dreaded dead zone in hunting. For those of you not familiar with what the dead zone is; This is the space where all beginners find themselves at with hunting, where the drops received is still less than what the ammo cost. As I'm not depositing money, I have gotten very good at sweating. I'm probably one of the strange few who like this activity, mainly because I can do other things while sweating This log is started on Caly, but I then moved to Arkadia so also duplicating the thread here. The original thread has a bit more detail welcome to go check it out. Day 83 (15 Sep 2012) Tasks of the day: 1. Sweat till I have 2k in reserve. 2. Auction house...
