    Starting to Believe in the New Weapons (FEN)

    As some of you know I took a break from the game at the end of January 2019 after buying a FEN Mace and some Adj Jag Armour, I think the stress was too much to try and buy the gear 'and' have a bankroll to play at the same time. Add to that a good decade+ of struggling in game financially (even though I had some great times), so my trust in the system didn't quite match the belief in the new items. I wanted too believe I really did, but I guess I wasn't ready to believe even though the weapon stats were superb based on enropia wiki. So all it took was some bad first runs, and I thought here we go again.

    Roll on three months; I paid off those items in real life and I was ready to have another go at hunting with a fresh mindset, clean credit card and new plans to try and make some progress.

    Anyway I've been thinking, do I write a thread or not....mmmmmm. Part of me doesn't want to tempt fate, but I'm an honest guy; so good or bad news I felt I owed it to the community to add an update.

    I took on board monitoriing returns, not just daily results. I took on board looking for mobs that might have some MU to help me. After I finished Atrox Bronze and 30K Feffox, which I just had to do on a personal level.

    I set myself play time and break times. Do 2 or 3 full maces, log off and walk away for an hour or so...relax do the washing up or something.

    Anyway after finishing Atrox and Feffox, I added a new hunting budget and started tracking.

    Are you ready for this..!!!!!!

    Between 8th May and today 15th May I've run 38 full maces with 6 amp and with some MU on oils etc, I'm roughly even. About 40 ped down, nothing to complain about.

    My mace is 500 ped TT and it burns about 135 ped amp 6 (roughly)

    So thats about 38 x 500+135 = 24130 ped turnover in 8 days roughly.

    As I said I don't want to tempt fate, so I'm not going to run a forum tracker for now. I want to give it 6 months, see how it goes.

    There's no amount of ped anyone could offer me for that mace right now.

    I just to say this for those that were used to running IMK2 and Mod Mercs for the last decade, it's very hard for players that have never used the kit to believe, when we were running much much worse without stats. I ran a valor non sib sword for my first couple of years in EU.....how bad eco was that compared with a IMK2!!!

    So I thank MA for open stats they put on weapons, and I also thank MA for new SIB weapons with amazing stats. I feel there's a future for the game. There certainly feels like a future worth skilling for.

    I'll finish by saying, I so hope I haven't nerfed my ava writing this. Cross finger.

    Happy hunting out there.

    hahaha.

    Well my last 3+ runs have been down runs, and I gave back the 960 ped hof. But more turnover managed to get me enough oils to bounce back, which wasn't possible with less eco.

    To be fair I did reasonably ok with less eco gear for many years, my issue was buying a weapon that should perform and it wasn't at the start. I still don't quite trust everything under the hood, but I'm more confident.

    Maybe a few more levels looter skill will make the difference.

    Other than finding a few nice pets and some ESI's years ago when I was doing all the Rex missions, I've still not found that amazing item.

    Onwards and upwards.

    Back to farming some CP revenue for the community today....smiles.

    "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to RickEngland again."

    Looks quite positive. I had a similar experience with my LR-40 FEN and mayhem alpha amp. Have upgraded to BC-80 Augmented based on my experience there.

    Thanks everyone for the comments..

    Interestingly your LR 40 FEN had comparable stats to FEN Mace. Gratz on your upgrade I hope it works out. That wasn't cheap either, so it would be nice to know just how much better it is than the FEN LR 40. Please keep us updated.

    I need another 20+ levels of clubs to use the level 80 FEN Mace, but no worries having fun with the kit I've just bought for now.

    It would be nice to hear how others are getting on with their new FEN weapons.

    I'm out for now, laters.
