    Heya,

    Been running this a short while on PCF;

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?273049-Whining-s-Profitable-Hunting-Log

    But figured since I am on Ark, in Ark forum with Ark people I might as well share the Ark parts here. So this log will begin at my initial hunt on Arkadia and onwards. While I'll include all hunts in the log on PCF, I will only include those on Arkadia in this thread.

    Basic idea:
    Using an eco weapon, T6 Vincent DPS at the moment, along with a half eco amp, improved A105 right now (Looking for a A204 upgrade as soon as I set aside enough money for a critscope) and an Earth Shock set I'll reach magical heights of eco, which in theory should yield a great return!

    Up until now, I have been able to track a 3.22 eco on average using the Entropia Life Tracker, which after enhancer consumption ends up around 3.185. However, that was with the Mod LR53 which I passed on the other day and I am really clueless how the Vincent will perform. The eco is slightly better, it has 80m range instead of 60m and about 10% more DPS. This should lead to me being able to hunt a larger variety of mobs than with the LR53, but at the moment I will stick to the mutated nusuls that I got hooked on and the Madanas.

    The idea is to get hit as little as possible due to the crazy markup of the armor. For those who don't know, the Earth Shock set gives you 60% increased damage on critical hits. Together with a weapon full of accuracy enhaners, that makes a huge difference.

    A table with information about all runs will be posted in the post below. So please, do not reply until I had time to reserve it. It should be up soon enough, but I have not yet looked into how to make fancy tables here on PAF, and stil have some numbers to crunch.

    Cheers!

    Reserved for fancy looking table with lots of green numbers

    I will only post TT values here. Markups can still be found on the log on PCF. I am however considering making markup private for this to be viable in the long run.

    This was Madana. Mobs will be added to the table I intend to put in the second post.

    It is not that amazingly horrible though, my overall returns on Ark so far should still be 90+ %.

    Run #6:

    Ammo: 917.00
    Weapon: 104.93
    Amp: 111.95
    Enhancers: 7.00
    FAP: 2.99

    Total expenses: 1158.90
    Return: 1054.04
    Net: -104.86 (90.95%)

    Run #7:

    Ammo: 1461.00
    Weapon: 137.63
    Amp: 91.70 (Inc MU)
    Armor: 0.98
    Enhancers: 16.80
    Fap: 16.64

    Total Expenses: 1724.75
    Total Return: 2710.92
    Net: +986.17 (157.18%)

    Part of three big hofs, 14k (got 700), 20k (got 400) and 20k (got 1000). So once the table is updated it will stay green for a while. :D

    --//--

    Updating tables later.

    Edit: Interesting to see that without the big ones, I'd be down 1.1k. The huge mobs really are a gamble.
