Hello all hunters on Calypso, Arkadia, Next Island, Rocktropia, Toulan, Cyrene or wherever you might hunt in the Entropia Universe,

Introduction
First a small intro to who I am and what I hunt (I tried, quess this shows who I am too). I'm an old player, started end of 2004 and I got my first swirlies about 17 years ago when I HOF'ed on an Exarosaur. It took me till the end of last year to score my first solo Uber (2.048 Oweko). I am a member of Laid Back, a fairly new soc created by me and other ex-members of Natural Born Killers. I've been in Supremacy Reign before that. A long time ago I was a member of Peacy, Inc., Seven Lives and Slaves to the Machine. Those three are all disbanded.
In the early days (or should I say years) I hunted exclusively with mêlée weapons, not even using a rifle to tag a mob. That changed with the introduction of the Sollomate Opalo first, but then I still didn't use ranged much. Later on I started skilling mindforce and I've begun to skill BLP Rifle quite recently. I often use the weapons that I find in my loot. I list the weapon(s) that I use each hunt, so no need to list them all here.
I have the following armor sets and plates: Musca (L), Pixie, CDF Scout, Gnome, Goblin, Adjusted Musca, Shogun, Gremlin, Viceroy, Liakon, Thunderbird (L), Plating 5B & 5D & 6A & 6B. I have discoverd and still own and use the GYRO Combat FAP-60 Smuggler.
I flew to Arkadia somewhere between august 2010 and may 2013 (I have no recorded global from the time between and I can't remember it either). I loved it at first, but now my faith is crumbling. More on that later. Since then I came back to Calypso a few times and I've also visited Cyrene, Next Island and Toulan.
I normally like to hunt pretty much everything that I can. This can be as small as a Carabok or as big as a Korwil.

I have a hunting blog over at Ark.Forum (click), yet I deceided to stop there and start it here. Two main reasons:
1) I'm no longer just a mêlée hunter, so no reason to continue calling it thus.
2) I don't like Arkadia as I used to do and I want to go to other places more, so no reason to have a blog on a forum that isn't active.

I have given myself five goals. Nothing special, just something small (or big) for me to aim for. When one is completed, I'll think of something else. They do not stand in any order, ie. the first is not the most important for me. When you click on the link above you'll see all the goals I had when I started the blog at Ark.Forum in december 2015.

Goals (from the start on this forum till present)
This list here is a summary of all the goals. These are either Completed, Active, or Abandonded. Between brackets is the date that I completed a goal.

68. Completed Finish Carabok Stage 5 (10.000) [09-may-'21].
73. Completed Finish Storm Drake Stage 2 (5.000) [15-jun-'21].
74. Completed Finish Otorugi Stage 3 (4.800) [18-jul-'21].

62. Active Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Active Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.30 of 30.00).
71. Active Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED (0 of 10.000).
72. Active Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (39 of 43).
74. Active Finish Oweko Stage 5 (1.918 of 12.000).

That's it for now. I'll post the first entry soon (I'm not running on MA nor Ark Team time, I promise!) That first entry will be a mirrow of my last entry on Ark.Forum.

Congrats on the new mentee and sorry for the poor hunting returns.

Do you track the skills you gain during your hunts? I'm curious if they're part of the "return" on hunting as there seem to be more of them from larger mobs and when the loot is poor or is that just because when the loot is good I'm not looking to the skills to justify the time/effort/$$$

Thanks and thanks ?
No, I don't track my skills during my hunts, I only check 11 skills before I make a new entry in this hunting blog. Those skills are: Clubs, Longblades, Power Fist, Shortblades, Whip [ie. Mêlée skills], Concentration, Power Catalyst [ie. MindForce skills], Aim, Handgun, Rifle, Support Weapon System [ie. Ranged skills]. So, no they are not calculated into the returns.
You do gain more skills on bigger mobs, of course, but that's more to do with the fact that you use bigger weapons too. Unless you take 5 min to kill one big mob, because you're using the same weapon as you do on an Ostelok.

To be completely honest about why I stopped the blog over at Ark.Forum: I've lost my faith in the Arkadia Developers. A year a go I said to myself: 'it's a good thing that we don't have Codex yet, because now I can prepare for it by working up to stages with good rewards.' But now, it's all been taking them too long, in my opinion. And then there are other issues too, like the debacle with the AMDs just to name one. For the last you'll only have to look at my results from this entry (although I don't dare to say that it would have been any different on another planet).
I want to go out and visit other planets more. I think that I'll make Arkadia my home planet from wich to set out and explore the wider Entropia Universe. I have an appartment here, that's very cozy and nice to store a bunch of weapons. And the extra storage in the Underground is very convenient for me as a hoarder.

Before I fly to the stars I want to do a couple of things here on Arkadia still.
1) Finish S5 Carabok, using the ping-pong method of hunting that I've been using in the past. That is 3 hunts on mob A ; 3-5 hunts on mob B ; 3 hunts on mob A ; 3-5 hunts on mob C, etc. Another small difference with the past few months is that I"ll be focusing on stages 5 & 6 exclusively.
2) A once in a decade crafting run. I've bought all blueprints from the Ark Technician and I've stored enough materials for about 4.875 clicks or 2.1k PEDs (I might not have enough Carabok Leather).

And now for what I've been hunting now. The main theme is bad results.
First I went to the Underground for big IFN Bots. I'm almost done with S5 now. After that I started Zadul S6 on the big boys. Around that time I came to the conclusion that Arkadia is drifting off into the cold and lonely vacuum of space. So I went for the Caraboks after having put that mission on hold for the past 17 months or there about. I used the old skool powerfists on the first two hunts. The last one is a hunt on big Bokol, the start of S5.

I hope to see you all on whatever planet we meet.
Maybe, with this change in approach to where I am, I'll join shared mobs more as well too.

PS. I don't know why my pictures don't work. Maybe I don't have enough rights yet? I had been active on this forum in the past with another username. Guess I'll have to ear it all again?

I also got these two screenshots that I wanted to show in the first post. First are my attributes at the start on Caly Forum, second the two rings that I have now: Mod Ares and Mod Athenic.

I stayed with the Bokol first, but this time the smaller ones. The returns were better too, and I got three small globals. I went for the event area for the last Bokol that I wanted to do on them. That's the area where they are mixed with Nusul. Again three small globals, but nothing special, yet the result is good.

After that I focused full on Carabok. Their loot is off, normally when I hunt such small mobs I get 9-11 new weapons after I had decayed 10. Now I haven't looted a single on after close to 4k kills. And the hide drops are also rare. Later on I did a small hunt of 400 Jori and I got ten times as much hides from those.
The result is good though: I finished Stage 5 Carabok and earned the Evade reward!

I wanted to get a bit more of that other defense type to, so I went down to the Underground to complete IFN Bots Stage 5. I succeeded with that, but not in getting anything close to a decent return.

A small Jori hunt and a very rare crafting run was all that stood now between me and flying off to Next Island.
At first my crafting returns were just mêh and my enjoyment was even less. I watered the plants, did the laundry, watched some Youtube and read a book. Halfway I got a big global of 122 PED.
And then at the end, I got a shock because the trumpets sounded to announce a HOF. Who would have thought that? lol

Yesterday I flew through a tick cloud of lag to Next Island. The first mob I took on were the small Yellow Papoo. I finished Stage 2 on them.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
68. Completed! Finish Carabok Stage 5 (10.000).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (25.32 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (37 of 43).
73. New! Finish Storm Drake Stage 2 (31 of 5.000). I am a bit afraid to take them on. They killed me quite a bit last (first) time I was on NI, but that was in sep '20. Not too far off in the past, so we'll see how it goes. I'm also mighty afraid that they will bleed my PED Card fast, since I didn't had much good returns on them when I finished Stage 1.

For now I'm planning to do the open Iron missions on Next Island in two steps, going back to Arkadia in between. Then, after a time on Arkadia again I think I'll go to Toulan to finish the open Iron missions there.
This time I want to hunt next: Grey Papoo, Mutant Boar, Mountain Boar, Shark, Ice Drake, Snow Drake and last Storm Drake. I'm going to do a few Storm Drake hunts between the others, because this one will be the toughest.

And I still don't know how to add pictures properly ... but it's getting some what better, is it not?

Next Island is good to me, extremely good. After one week I'm now 700 PED plus, or 111% return. :love:

After the smallest Papoo I went for the first Storm Drake hunt. They weren't nearly as bad as I'd feared. I can now solo, with relatively ease, up to a Dominant. I killed an Alpha one time, but he got me killed during the hunt. It's not to say that I won't get killed by smaller Storm Drakes, I do, but not quite as often as the first time I went to Next Island. I use Thunderbird (L) and 5B plates, because I found out that works best against them.
I got a very nice HOF on the second Storm Drake hunt, at the same time as I got up one rank in the Codex Challenge.
index.php


Other Storm Drake globals from these hunts:

After the first Storm Drake hunt I went to finish of some Grey Papoo, getting a smaller Perception reward for having done Stage 3. After those and the second Storm Drake hunt I went for the Mountain Boars. Nothing special here and the loot wasn't with me (same as with the Grey Papoo).

The bad loot remained with me for the third Storm Drake hunt, even though I got three smallish globals.
And then, one morning (or better said, one night) I woke up at around 04:00. I was staring at the ceiling and twisting left and right, head to foot. At the end I got up, got dressed and got in front of my computer. I dove into the southern sea around Crystal Bay. A lovely beach, nice warm waters infested with Sharks. The first I encounted gave me a very good global of 338 PED! :D
I got six globals that hunt in total. And on the next hunt MindArk deceided that I didn't need any more, so I got none lol.
index.php


In 2-3 more hunts I go finish the Shark mission, old style. After that I'm going to find out how good or bad the Ice and Snow Drakes are to me.
So far, I'm very happy that I got here on Next Island and it's a much more pleasant experience then the first time around.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (25.36 of 30.00).

I've noticed with Codex here on Next Island that some mobs are grouped together. For example, there's the Papoo Challange, the Drake Challenge, and the Boar Challenge. I know for certain that Papoos are grouped together and I expect the same for the Drakes, Boars and Sharks. On the one hand I like it, because it leads to faster progress, yet on the other hand it feels kinda lame and makes it even harder to distinguish between one type of Papoo or Boar from the other.
Posting pictures goes better too now here on Caly Forum. I've figured out how to post the in full, but can't see to post thumbnails yet. :unsure:

I haven't been able to play last week, but still I have a lot to unpack from before that.
First I continued with another Shark hunt, and then I talked a bit about it in socchat. A socmate send me a pos "for the bigger Sharks". Ai, those bigger sharks were the Great Whites. I didn't back down from the challenge and so there's a Great White hunt between two normal Shark hunts. It took me one more Shark hunt near Crystal Bay to finish that mission.
Then I went back to the Great Whites, forgetting that I had them planned for the next time I would be on Next Island. Oh well, it's good to have them done now or later. I tried the big Great Whites once, but I had trouble to kill them even when a socmate (who just ended a solo hunt) was healing me. I guess they smelled my blood and thought it's very tasty. Also, I get way better loot from the normal Sharks compared to the Great White Sharks.
After finishing Stage 3 Sharks I did one Storm Drake hunt, but there's isn't much to talk about that one.

Some of the globals and other Shark pictures:
index.php

index.php


After the last Great White Shark hunt I took a Sleipnir out of my backpocket and flew to Calypso. First I hunted the Boorums, because I had it open as a daily and to gain a little bit of Mutant Looter skills. It was a good hunt, with two smallish globals. I continued with the mutants by hunting Calamusoid, Argonauts (not mutants!) and Feffoids. All small maturities, and all except the Argonauts were pretty good hunts.

The reason for flying to Calypso, before finishing the Storm Drake mission, was that I joined The Hunt Club. This was the first of the hunts, organized by Talos. We hunted Proteron with small weapon (I used an S & B Ardenner 4 (L) ). It was great fun, and I now have almost finished Proteron Rank 1 lol.
index.php


And now this update is taken over by the events of the past week.
I am back on Arkadia as I write this (the last hunt of this update is on Otorugi). When I landed there we did not had Codex, but now we do. During my flight I made a top 10 of mobs that I wanted to push to Stage 6. I picked them based on what Stage they're currently in, how much I like a mob, and the rewards from the current to the last stage. These are:

1. Oweko
2. Otorugi
3. Navi & Wombana
4. Korwil
5. Pandi
6. GMC_Gamma
7. Oratan
8. Jori
9. Warhound
10. Aakas Keys (one mob at a time).

I picked one mob at random and that was the Otorugi (hence the last hunt is an Otorugi hunt). Now that we finally have Codex on Arkadia I have to change my plans again lol. I'll keep this Top 10 and cross out one mob at a time. It's a challenge to get them all done I think. On the other hand I can't complain when I fail to do some, since I already had almost a year longer to prepare and hunt on Arkadia then I thought when Codex was first announced on Calypso.
Oh, and the Otorugi hunt sucked.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (25.78 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (38 of 43).
73. Finish Storm Drake Stage 2 (2.511 of 5.000).

Three remarks about the hunting table below.
1. Codex Points (CP) are based on Drone Killpoints. So 0.1k CP is roughly 0.1k KP, at least for Drones. I know that some mobs have way more or less CP for the same effort in time and PEDs spend. I do that just to quantify my hunts and be able to compare one 2.6k CP Sharks with another 2.4k CP Shark.
2. How many Codex Points I scored are now rounded up or down to the nearest 0.1k
3. I list the CP only (except of course on the last Ororugi hunt, where I can't do that yet).

My story of the past two weeks in short:
I got back to Arkadia for a few days, hunting Otorugi, including my first Ark Codex hunt. Then I went back to Calypso for the first Laid Back sochunt, yet I missed the memo that it was cancelled lol. So I went for the shared Mulmuns and lost my ass off (not as bad as some of the other hunts though). After that short trip to Caly I flew to Next Island to finish off the Storm Drakes, Brown Papoo and Snow Drakes. At the last one I discover the Arcticus Harness (F)! And now I'm back on Arkadia once again.

I didn't do anything yet on Arkadia, except ...
index.php

No, I don't know what it costed me to click that baby lol.

So, the story in more details. First three hunts were on Otorugi on Arkadia. I got four global on the first hunt and even seven on the second hunt! And then zero on the third, resulting in a major loss. I did made some good progress on the Codex though, so it's not too bad.

After those Otorugi I flew to Calypso for a sochunt that wasn't. I hunted Daikiba at the wave, because that was a daily. Then I had some fun and losses at the shared Mulmuns. Last I hunted Maffoid to increase my Mutant Looter, whom tried to make up some good for my past failures.
index.php


It took me longer then expected yet to finish Stage 2 Storm Drakes, but I did and not without some good loot either.
index.php

index.php


I stayed a little longer on Next Island, because I couldn't get a trip down to Arkadia before yestereve due to work. I finished the Brown Papoos first, but then I deceided that it's better to go for the bigger Snow Drakes. Reason being that I don't know when I'll be back on Next Island again, and they give a better reward for my efforts (Vulcan and Death Drakes don't have interesting rewards for me).
On the second or third Snow Drake I ever killed I got this pleasant suprise.
index.php

index.php


Last two hunts were on Wild Boars, but nothing much to add for them.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.17 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (38 of 43).
73. Completed! Finish Storm Drake Stage 2 (2.511 of 5.000).
74. New! Finish Otorugi Stage 4 (3.075 of 4.800). Just going to start where I left off, unfortuatly with a mob that has one of the most useless rewards in my opinion. But at least I'll have a guaranteed Otorugi Trophy that I can put on display lol.

Right now my plan is to stay on Arkadia at least till the end of this year, with the exception of short trips now or then for teamhunts. In about six months I want to evaluate how far I've come and thus if I can afford to go on another trip to Toulan and Next Island to finish of the Iron missions there.

Real life is making my head streaming over and therefor I haven't done much here in the Entropia Universe.
I'm oke, no health nor mental problems. Just a bit overworked from working 5 days a week and preparing for a summercamp with the boy/girl scouts.

I'll just keep this update simple.
After I got back from Next Island I started on the Otorugi. I got a nice juicy HOF on the second hunt.
index.php


Then I hunted Ark. Hornets for a little while. That was just a mob that I picked at random. So to conclude in the first month of Codex on Arkadia I have 1) Been to Calypso, 2) Been to Next Island, 3) Hunted Otorugi wich will give me Vehicle Repairing - wich I don't use, 4) Hunted puny Hornets wich I could do any other month.
I'm not off for a good start lol.

Summercamp is over and done (in the good sense of the phrase). I'm still tired and so haven't done very much in the Entropian Universe.
I've hunted Otorugi on the last day before camping. Yet this time I used my old skool bad boy just for the fun of it. The return was shit (because of it?), but I'm still using it. Now I just want to know if I go broke before I hit a big one or not.

This weekend I've finished Otorugi Stage 4.
index.php


Now I'm on the Oweko, working on finished Stage 5. I'm not disappointed with my progress so far and I think I can do them in 20-30 hunts.
index.php

Funny story about this picture: I saw the Nissit and liked the view off Victorious Firebase from my standpoint with the Oweko in front so I clicked the PrtSc button. I never saw the second Oweko coming up from behind me.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.30 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (39 of 43).
74. Completed! Finish Otorugi Stage 4 (4.800).
75. New! Finish Oweko Stage 5 (1.918 of 12.000). I like the reward a thousand times more then the reward for the Otorugi S4. Otherwise this was simply randomly choosen as well.

Nice hunting log! If I may make a few points regarding the tt return: I assume it's in the right ball park given looter levels of 30ish and efficiency of 60. Perhaps a little low for the big turnover (I'd assume 94 %). However, you're using UNMAXED weapons like camo stalker and enblade ME-edition. That's throwing peds out the window. Keep hit at 10/10. It's worth paying for Armatrix blades in the 120% range instead of hunting unmaxed (120% adds like 0.7% total cost of a hunt). Another thing is that there's not much use tracking returns on 1k hp++ mobs with just 300-600 ped runs. Variation will be great until you kill 10k-100k mobs. Killing 200 big mobs is just lottery. My 2 pec. Now, keep it up (but ditch the UL unmaxed!) :cool:
