    Hi all,

    I'm quite new to arkadia an I was wondering what creatures are woth to hunt in terms of skill gain. I prefer creatures that give evade or lvl up my laser sniper hit/dmg
    curently i'm on lvl 30 laser sniper hit and lvl 10 evader and i'm looking to get these up.

    my curent setup is piron plr-27 (will move to the plr-3x series soon aswell)
    I mainly use adj pixies armour with 2a or 5a plates

    now I know I can find it all on entropedia but still wanted to know from you guys from personal experience wich are most fun to hunt and most eco. Beside you can easy miss some stuff as entropedia is quite (verry) big.

    Well I would Grab EVERY IFN Mission available ;) and then there are the skill rewards available as and when you complete the IFN Stages.

    Now You Mention that you would like to skill evade up - well if your up for a Grind and a Bit of a Reward at the end you can hunt my favorite mob KADRA and yes I think this might turn in to a shameless plug for Sanctuary Cove. When you COMPLETE stage 5 there is a 1500 PED Bounty Claimable from the Owner of Sanctuary Cove.



    Mission Chain


    IFN Challenge - Kadra Stage 1
    Objective:
    Kill 75 Kadra
    Reward: Aim (eq. 1.10 PED implant)

    IFN Challenge - Kadra Stage 2
    Objective:
    Kill 400 Kadra
    Reward : Anatomy (eq. 5.85 PED implant)


    IFN Challenge - Kadra Stage 3
    Objective:
    Kill 1200 Kadra
    Reward: Courage (eq. 11.31 PED implant)

    IFN Challenge - Kadra Stage 4
    Objective:
    Kill 4800 Kadra
    Reward: Kadra Trophy Head and
    Agility (100 Tokens) and Light Melee Weapons (eq. 27.02 PED implant) or
    Agility (100 Tokens) and Athletics (eq. 27.02 PED implant)

    IFN Challenge - Kadra Stage 5
    Objective:
    Kill 12000 Kadra
    Reward: Stamina (100 Tokens) and Bioregenesis (eq. 47.45 PED implant) or
    Stamina (100 Tokens) and Bravado (eq. 47.45 PED implant) or
    Stamina (100 Tokens)and Concentration (eq. 47.45 PED implant)

    IFN Killpoint Challenge - Kadra Stage 6 (Repeatable)
    Objective:
    Kill Kadra worth 60000 kill points
    Reward: Kadra Figurine +
    Evade (eq. 24.03 PED implant)


    I Did this with the BLP Versions of the weapons you are using to start with ;) and love hunting them when its night time as there all light up and also great animations as they dance when you shoot them ;)

    I am easily amused

    I'm guession I'll need some better armour for these? Will I be able to hunt them with the adj pixies I have atm? and what kinda armour you use to hunt hem most eco?

    I love a good grind like I did with the argo's on caly. The Kadra seem to produce a fair amount of globals wich makes the grind a bit more interesting and fun imo. I don't rly hunt for globals but it's a nice addon :D

    AND don't forget the ongoing monthly events of Kadra MAASSACRE and Huon MASSACRE where you are also paid for each and every global you get!
    Check out these threads as not only will you be able to complete the missions but factoring in the rewards from the events will make them a heck of a lot more economical to hunt too!

    Sanctuary Cove
    Huon MASSACRE @ Sanctuary Cove
    Kadra MASSACRE @ Sanctuary Cove
    IFN Challenge Bounty @ Sanctuary Cove

    Songkra Valley
    Go Swirl Yourself and Get Paid

    Yes I think That Might be the Case Snape ;) But its always fun to be in trouble and then get out of trouble and make up ;)

    Well LA6 Been the Cool Private Estate that it is has Mobs that Arn't really suitable for newer players ;) as even I struggle
    and hit the revive terminal way to often ;) ;) But LA6 & 8 Coins are part of the Big Industries Program and so if you check
    on Entropia Life they have there reward program ( I Don't Fully understand it and have read it lots of times ) .

    I use adjusted musca with 8A plates and they do minimal dmg. Against those kadra. Just looted a pbr 32 rifle yesterday and sold it for 140%. I just made a forum account and didn't even know about this massacre thing. Quite nice

    All god advices here, no doubt, but here's my 2 pec :2pec:

    Start at the bottom. Start with the mobs with the lowest HP, do the missions and work your way up. (puny mobs -> Ostelok -> halix -> etc.)
    Why? You will get a lot of skills along the way, and the rewards from the missions are actually worth the effort. Also, you will never hunt above your level. If you never hunt above your level, your costs to play will be within reason.

    Well, every one plays on their own way really. Can't argue with that. And I do believe my playstyle differs from a lot of people. Best you can do is to find your own. Player X can advise this and player Y advices that.

    I think best advice I can give you is to try and play it smart. It's a tough world out there.
