    Hello,

    I'm currently at level 10 laser sniper (hit) and lv 8 dmg profession.
    So far I've hunted this mob at Arkadia:
    • Halix young-old. Probably the most profitable mob for me (86-92% TT return)
    • Oro young and mature.
    • Jori Old - dominant.
    • Several punies such as caraboks and gallards. I mainly swunt them if I have nothing to do while surfing the web hahah
    • Oratan daily mission (currently at Thug day 2)
    I'd like to ask if there are other mobs which I can hunt other than stated above or whether I should climb up to harder mobs. My setup for all mobs above (except punies) are Ozpyn LR S1X1 + ZX Sinkadus and Sollomate Azuro as finisher. Also, which sib weapons should I use next? I've almost maxed the ozpyn (only a little bit more for dmg profession).

    Any suggestion is appreciated. thanks before

    PS: The ZX Sinkadus, although nice, has quite a decay. My hunting log records highest decay on equipment to be the sinkadus.

    EDIT : added the oratan daily mission mobs

    Well, except punnies (caraboks - 10 hp, arkadian hornet - 10, monura males - 12, monura females - 13, gallard - 15 hp) you have the following mob with a reasonably low HP to hunt with your current setup:

    - Jori (hp from 20 to 130)
    - Ostelok (hp from 20 to 150)
    - Halix (hp from 40 to 180)
    - Feran (hp from 40 to 190)
    - Oro (hp from 50 to 320)
    - Zadul (hp from 90 to 550)

    About ZX Sinkadus decay - yeah, it is quite high, but it also saves you a lot of ammo and normal decay on gun; generally it is a really eco amp, problem is that due to its low bonus damage, its really productive only for low level/damage guns; as you move up, you have better (bigger) amps, especially the a-series.

    hmm I see. Thx for the reply. Ostelok looks nice, although the hides' MU aren't as much as the other mob. Been looking to Feran also, but the loots are usual, and I don't see many ppl hunting Ferans.

    I'm not sure if Ozpyn and the sinkadus are eco for mobs with 80+ HP. It seems that I need to step up my weapon to max 15 dmg or so for 80+ HP mobs.

    Forgot one very important thing. :)

    You also have the daily IFN in your damage range, and enough of them to keep you busy for about four months. :)

    - Punies (first 7 days) are 10 hp
    - Things (next 7 days) are 50 hp
    - Bandits (next 14 days) are 60 hp
    - Thieves (next 30 days) are 70 hp
    - Vandals (next 60 days) are 90 hp

    And with mission rewarding you about 10% of spent money in UA, it should be a really profitable venture (I know that's what I would do if I would still be on Ark).

    Yea I'm also doing that oratan daily (forgot to add them. Will add to the post). Currently at day 2 of Oratan thugs. The rewards are somewhat quite nice, but the loots aren't quite good (dunno if it's just bad luck or so because I got around 78%-ish TT return the last hunting run). Also, skill gains are slow on them.

    the lvl 5, 440 HP, wombana young? really? it'll be like throwing away PEDs with my setup. Or can u suggest a different setup for my skill level, so that I could probably step up to harder mobs?

    Anyway, while we're at it, I'm at lv 4 cyrogenic and still using the Lacerating attack nanochip I (not yet maxed). where can I lvl my MF skill effectively, considering the high dmg and ammo cost ? hahah

    oh sorry. you're still setup for carabok puny... finish all the carabok stages and the puny oratan missions then you'll be ready to advance to bigger mobs... assuming you upgrade your gun a bit too.......

    nah, puny is just for killing time. planning to swunt them all until I finish the carabok mission though. Can u suggest any weapons that I can use after ozpyn?

    ah yes ofc. Only doing that if there's a mission or there's a demand for something dropped from those mobs

    the oratan puny actually have great mission chain... and great drops... better than carabok imo.....
    carabok hides age great mu too...
    the oratans drop minerals which are nice mu....

    ic ur using sinkadus + lr s1x1....

    um.. you get better dpp with a sinkadus + the s.i. laser rifle.... s.i. hk something...
    better dpp = save more peds....

    for an upgrade tho...

    i'd recommend ozpyn chon+ a101 thats a nice setup...

    hmm......

    from there.....://

    hard to say unless ur willing to spend 3~4k..... for a nice ul gun.....

    otherwise ur best bet is to keep hunting for nice L guns........
    my recommendation is to pay very close attention to DPP...

    otherwise you might as well just drop pec on the ground at random intervals.... same concept

    Hmm never thought of using the HK110 with sinkadus. I was thinking that the dmg is too small compared to the s1x1, esp. for mobs with 50+ HP. Anyway, how or where can u calculate the DPP of a weapon with amps? I used the entropia armory, but there isn't any weapon below 6 max dmg..

    Entropedia, weapon compare, there you can add various weapons (with or without an amp).
