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].
75. Completed Finish Oweko Stage 5 (12.000) [06-sep-'21].
72. Completed Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (43) [21-nov-'21].
62. Completed Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (1). [27-nov-'21].
76. Completed Finish Korwil Stage 4 (4.800) [01-dec-'21].
79. Completed Finish Wombana Stage 6 (60.000) [19-feb-'22].
77. Completed Max-out Cryogenic Attack Nanochip 9 (L) (31) [24-feb-'22].
78. Completed Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part II (1) [07-mar-'22].
80. Completed Finish Madana Stage 4 (4.800) [08-mar-'22].
83. Completed Finish Magurg Male Stage 3 (2.100). [15-mar-'22].
71. Completed Visit Monria and cycle PED (10.000). [23-apr-'22].

69. Active Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.99 of 30.00).
81. Active Max-out Castorian Xeno-Dagger Stinger (L) (53 of 62).
82. Active Get a promotion in the IFN (Day 3 of 45).
84. Active Finish The Apprentice Traeskeron Fighter (0 of 600).
85. Active Finish The Order of the Elder Gods (1 of 4).

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).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (38 of 43).

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:

Thanks for the comments! I'm fully aware of the limitations of using unmaxed weapons, it's just my kind of gambling I guess lol. I don't use the Castorian 13-ME that much (these hunts are a rare exception) and the Camo Stalker is used as a tagger only. Still, you're right about it being unwise.
I've used ArMatrix blades in the past, but I was losing PEDs in the end. I did a large comparision of weapons one day, it's in one of the entries over at Ark.Forum. (On a side note, I had a 103% average return on the Castorian 13-ME then lol).
I track every hunt I do. Even if it's just shooting 50 PED at a big >1k HP mob. Variation is great, true at that. But in the end the numbers will be big enough.

And with having said all that, I've stubornly kept using the Castorian 13-ME till last friday. And losing my ass off with it too. I've hunted Oweko, Tiarak and IFN Bots with it.
I had one big Tiarak global. Oweko was shit every hunt.
index.php


Friday I flew to Calypso for a sochunt at the RDI lab. It was the first time that I did that and I had some good fun. I'm a solitary hunter most of my time, but I do enjoy hunting with friends just as much. The RDI Lab hasn't charmed me that much, though.


Saturday I completed an Aetherex mission first that I had open for like years. Then I warped on a full Mothership to Toulan for #bosshunting. The developers were throwing all the got at us, but they couldn't take us down. We had a couple of good HOFs and I got two items at full TT in smaller globals twice. The second stage was on Cyrene. We shot Byg Byrds for the most part. At first I got a new rank with every kill lol. I missed out on the good loots this time, but that's oké.
That evening was some good fun too.

So now I'm left on Cyrene. Bosshunting went on with Space mobs and Sand King, but I went to my bad late at night.
I have to recalculate the returns from the last hunt, because maybe I'm missing some 100 PEDs. And I have to check my HP, because I'm pretty well sure that I can't get 210 HP two times lol.
[EDIT] I have 210 HP now. A mistake of 210 where it must be 209 (hunt #1685) looks sort of weird to me though. The returns of the last hunt are as good as it gets.

I did one mining run on Cyrene and then I flew back to Arkadia.
My main goal for the next 10 months are to finish as many IFN missions as I can, before they are all gone. I pick one mob to focus on and Oweko has the honours for now. I normally do three hunts Oweko followed by three hunts of another mob. Yet now I started with six Oweko hunts, because I did many other things before with the IFN Bots, RDI Lab and Bosshunting. Lootwise they're about just as bad now as before (I switched back to using my mace). I reached however a fine milestone with the skills.
index.php

index.php


The mobs that I hunt between the Owekoes are those of wich I got to IFN Stages 5 or 6. Stage 5 because these are the largest and Stage 6 because of the figurine and it has the best skill rewards too. The digital dice rolled to Osteloks this time and I did the last 1/3rd of the mission in one go. And I got another nice suprise too!
index.php

index.php

So now I can proudly say that I got the 5th highest Ostelok global! lol
I can't say what's more embarrasing now though. The fat 571 Snablesnot HOF I got way back in 2008, or that this Ostelok beated it with just 25 PED?!
Funny coincidence is that I got them both on the 8th day of the 8th month. ... or is it!?

After that I did two uneventfull Oweko hunts. The last out of three was good with a few globals and better items then a withered roomplant. Then the digital dice rolled to Zadul. Again a Stage 6 mob, but I needed three hunts to finish the smallest part of half the 60k. The first hunt was good, but then they thought "Screw this hunter, we're not giving anything." Still happy with the reward for the IFN mission of course.
index.php


Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.61 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (40 of 43). - Yeah! Going up! lol
75. Finish Oweko Stage 5 (6.857 of 12.000). I would still have to do 12 or 13 hunts on them at the average rate of the past 9 Oweko hunts. So let's see how that goes.

Last time I talked about how I am going to take on the IFN missions. So, naturaly, I've changed my plan already.
I looked at the progress on the open missions and realized two things. 1) I have many mobs at Stage 4, ranging from the small Monura to the big Yuka. 2) Many mobs at Stage 4 are at 0 of 4.800. Conclusion: It's very likely that I won't be able to finish all the mobs. Some of them will be hard to finish in their own rights. Yuka, for example, would need something like 50 hunts to complete, because I'm doing 100 kills per hunt on average. And so I'm adjusting my plan, since I don't want to end with 10 missions at 50-80%.
My plan now is to alternate between two mobs, doing three to five hunts on each. The first is still the Oweko. The second was Oratans, untill this happened:
index.php


Very happy with how that ended, I can tell you that. But those were only two hunts and so I flew to the Moon to do this:
index.php


The Owekoes are a little bit better now too, with the last hunt for this update ending with a nice profit.
I did one small hunt on Jori, just testing the waters so to speak. I haven't made up my mind yet if I want to do them (and Hornets and Ferans as well) or not. If I do, I would propably have to hunt with massive overkill and lootpills, to speed things up.
Side note: I have made some progress on all three of these small mobs. And yet I don't know how I got that on the Ferans. I haven't listed any hunt after finishing Stage 5, and yet I've killed a bunch of them. And not like 20 either that can be accounted for as collectoral damage on Yuka hunts.

And now I'm on Bokols, doing good on them lootwise and progressing fast on finishing Stage 6. I will finish them in 1 or 2 more hunts, so will do just that.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.80 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (40 of 43).
75. Finish Oweko Stage 5 (9.007 of 12.000).

Small change in how I present this: just showing what mobs I've hunted. Codex Points (CP) are my own calculations and I use those to track my hunts personally.

I'm leaving out how much Mêlée, Ranged and Mindforce I hunt with (and choose as skill rewards) now too. That will go to the summaries at the end of the year, because the fluctuations each update are simply to minor.

Another mission completed, a good reward and another figurine.
index.php


After that one hunt I went back to Oweko. They were good enough compared to other hunts, meaning that it's still rather poor though.

Then I went down into the Aakas Dungeons. Now, I had been in doubt many times if I wanted to go for the Aakas Challenges or not, because you can only hunt them together. But then I looked at the reward for the one that would be easiest to finish, that is Stage 3 Dehere Defenders. It will give me Rifle and that's a good enough skill not to let go by.
I did three hunts on them, all small with just one Aakas Key (4 and 5). One of the Deheraas even gave me a fine suprise:
index.php


I can finish them in three more hunts (keys). I think I'll do the Magurgs partly with key-runs and partly on their Island.
Ubo is another likely candidate that I can finish without too much trouble.
Yarrijak is a bit of a doubter, I place them along with the other small mobs such as the Hornets.
I simply have to kill way too many Rakta to even think about them. Not talking about the bosses (Magurg Female and Dehera Sentinel) either.

Talking about finishing missions: I did three more Oweko hunts after the Aakas runs, and now I can see the end ahead. Just a little less then 600 left to kill, wich I can do next time around. But first completing the Dehera.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (26.94 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (41 of 43).

This is a good update, for a couple of reasons. First: I had a profitable hunt 8 out of 12, and of the 4 hunts with a loss half of them were still over 90%! Second: I finished the IFN missions of the Dehera Defenders and the Oweko!

The first hunt I did were on neither of those, however, but on Jori. Just a small hunt before going to work (I work in shifts). I did another Jori hunt in between the Aakas runs for the same reason.
I enjoyed running the Aakas Keys more then I did previously. I think it's because now I did bigger keys (5 and 6), while I did the smaller Keys in the beginning. First time I did it solo with only TT mêlée and that was a bore lol, especially on the bosses.

index.php

index.php


The Oweko didn't gave me much to remember, although it looked like MA wanted to give me a few good runs to remember them in a possitive way. Either way, I might want to get back to them to push myself to Codex Rank 26, but that's a plan for the far future.
I'm very pleased with the reward for Stage 5. I don't often see well over 100 skillpoints in any General skill.

index.php


And then I had to roll the dice to see wich mob to focus on.
It's the icy cats, the agressive killing machines, the fast Korwil.
I had to take out the Jungle Stalker again to tag them, because going at them Mêlée all the Way (something I did 99% on the Oweko), is a sure suicide. I'm suprised to see that all three hunts I've done so far had a positive result. All three had good globals and I now already have too many Cryogenic MF chips lol.

Now I'm closing in on another major, silent milestone.
index.php

Longblades / Swordsman had been my #1 almost since day 1, that is more then 16 years ago, yet now I'm closing in on topping that with Clubs!
This following pictures are from may 2007, when Ardorj was 2 years old lol. It's the oldest skill picture that I have.

index.php

index.php


I must say that I didn't expected to have >5.1k Longblades skill and being a Great Level 30 Swordsman (Hit). It kinda makes me wonder what I did the 14 years following these pictures? But then, when I do I bit of calculating, the answer sort of emerges. 5.1k skills equals an ESI of 168 PED. I now have 7.6k Longblades, equalling an ESI of 905 PED. That is ~5,4 times more Longblades skills. Clubs are far, far more impressive going from 0.4k (80 PEC!) to 7.4k (803 PED) wich is ~950 times bigger!
I could do the same with a couple of more skills, but I guess that's unneccesary?

Results since tracking:
Total decay: 654k PED

So much to do and so little time to do it in. But at the very least I've completed another IFN Mission: Oro Stage 6!

index.php


I hunted the big Oro with looted ranged weapons. The loot was ok, nothing special about it.

Then I went back to the Korwils for three hunts. On one I accidently answered the question if it's possible to global in death: Yes, you can :ROFLMAO:
index.php


And then, on the last of three hunts, I got a big suprise.
index.php


Woot! This is my third Ubers as of today - and with an item too lol. It took me many, many years to get my first solo, and now it seems they're a little bit more common. And I like them all.

In the end I went for three Nusul hunts. They're my new secondary focus mob and another that is at Stage 6 for the IFN mission. Nusul aren't big, at least not that much bigger then an Oro, yet somehow this will take me a couple of more hunts compared to Oro.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.02 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (41 of 43).

It's been a while since I last updated my log. And I have to admit that I did not do nearly half of the hunts that I wish I did. And some of those were rather small as well. Real life had been consuming a lot of my time, and I predict that it will continue to do so till the end of this year, if not after that too.

I've hunted Korwil, Nusul, and then Korwils again. One day I've hunted Jori while I was waiting for the plumber to arrive.
The loot has been good, except for the Nusul hunts and a couple of hunts before and after those.

I'm going forward in my own slow space. First hunt was another small Korwil, followed by two smaller Nusul hunts where I finished Stage 6.
index.php


After that I managed to finish Stage 6 Tiarak as well in two more hunts. By the way, those Stalkers can put on a good fight, especially when they come in pairs.
index.php


So, that's another two mobs to cross of the list.
I started Korwil once more with the normal setup, yet I switched to the badboy Castorian sword on the second hunt, because I was close to this:
index.php


On the third Korwil hunt I got only one global, yet it was the biggest of this update. I also got to Rank 10 Korwil and picked Dodge, because l was reading and commenting in Rookie chat about the Evader and Dodger proffessions.
index.php

index.php


And now I've finally started the Navi Stage 6. I had the idea at first to try out small, middle and big maturities first and see what gives me the best results in terms of killpoints per PED spend. But when I got to the Alphas I changed that to just stick to the lower maturities. Guardians can give me hard enough blows already to send me to revive and the KP/PED was roughly the same.
I'm also not sure that the damage type on them is entirely correct. It's listed as 100% impact, but it wasn't much better when I switched from Gremlin (15 Imp) to Liakon (21 Imp). Maybe it was even worse? I might check it next time with 5D and 6A plates and see if they decay, because neither of them have Impact protection.
I used a Piron rifle on the last two Navi hunts (out of four), because I came to the realization that too many weapons were littering my Storage. I also had about 3k Shrapnel unconverted and unsolled locked in Storage. And besides, it's just nice to shoot with a rifle once in a while. I put a lot of other weapons on Auction, some of wich have been sold by now.

Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.19 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (42 of 43).
76. Finish Korwil Stage 4 (2.356 of 4.800).

Korwil / Navi / Korwil / Navi.
That's the shortest version of this update.
First three Korwil hunts, where on I didn't get much loot. Maybe because I was using the Jungle Stalker on two of these hunts because I was out of PEDs to repair my mace, but had plenty of Shrapnel to go with. I did, however loot one ESI and I got the highest global of this update during one of these runs too.
index.php


Then I went to the underground and got a small suprise right at the first global.
index.php

Another one of the unlimited Gravis weapons! It doesn't quite suit my playing style, so I placed it on Auction. The smaller GLP-27 is on the Auction now as well.
On the next Navi hunt I got to Codex 10 and the hunt after that I made it to level 60 Clubber (Dmg)!
index.php

I tried the big Navi over at Dead End of the last of these hunts, but I think I prefer the small ones north of the main Underground TP. Maybe I'll try it another day with a healer.

The loot had climmed to nice green numbers on the last two Navi hunts, and it stayed that way in the first of the following Korwil hunt. The one after that was terrible, and I don't know how or why. There is one thing to note though on this hunt:
index.php

Swordsman as always been my #1 Proffession, for as long as I've played Entropia Universe. But now Clubber has taken the lead! Longblades is still a bigger skill then Clubber (Anatomy is my highest). I suspect that Swordsman and Clubber will flip a few times before I can say for certain that Clubs is now my best. Navi will give me Longblades rewards, for example.
I don't know how, but Wounding is rising very fast as well.
index.php


I've looted two Cryogenic Attack Nanochip 9 (L) on these Korwil hunts and I used them on the following Navi hunt. That was quite fun and the loot was pretty good as well.

62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).

I will have to start hunting the Yukaas as soon as I'm done with the Navies, or else I propably won't be able to finish Stage 4 before IFN ends on Arkadia. The reward is Clubber, but that's not the main reason why I want to do them. I just want the trophy in my appartment to show off lol. There are still too many IFN missions left for me, and with each passing week it seems less likely that I will be able to do most that I want to.

I'm still going on with Navies and Korwils and more of the same.
First hunt was on Jori though, because I had just a little bit of time to play. Second was on Jori too, to break the MF-chip that I was using.
One more Navi hunt and then I went for the Korwils again. I had some good globals there, yet the end results were rather meh. But I did get another suprise HOF lol.
index.php


Back to the Navi, first at Dead End, where the big maturies roam. I had a healer with me that time, but they could still pound me back to revival with ease. There I futher solidified my Clubber level.
index.php


I forgot to check if I had maxed out the Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) because of that progress, but I did for sure a few days later.
index.php


That wasn't so easy lol. Now I want to stock on a couple of more of these axes and do a nice bit of hunting with it. I do wonder now how I got it though. I can't find it as a loot in my log and I also have not left a note with a markup. Still, it got be from a teamhunt where I bought it at 100%.

Lastly, I've done two more smallish Korwil hunts. The first was very good with one good global and an Item that I haven't looted before.
index.php


Goals:
62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1). Working on the Navi!
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.29 of 30.00). Slow, but steady. More slow then steady.
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000). Ehhh ... let's talk about this one once the 1 year grace period on Arkadia ends.
72. Completed! Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (43).
76. Finish Korwil Stage 4 (3.932 of 4.800). Less then 1.000 to go!
77. New! Max-out Cryogenic Attack Nanochip 9 (L) (30 of 31). I know, I've used this as my main weapon already, but I don't have it maxed yet. This goal is a stepping stone to maxing-out the Cryo 10 (L) that I've looted on the second to last Korwil hunt.

Someone borrow this man a fen weapon!

You could use one of those combu 6, kinetic 8, cryo 8, and add mf-delta, dpp would be 3.2 with that setup.

I had taken a look at some of the mêlée FEN/Loot 2.0 weapons, but they're either lvl 10 or the markup is way out of my reach :(
I've looted a Cryo 10 (L) lately that I haven't maxed yet. I can buy a MF-Delta for that and see how it goes. I've had some oke results with the Cryo 9 (L)s that I've looted, even though those weren't maxed-out.

The past ten days I've continued to hunt Korwils first, but nothing special to note happened there. Then I went for two Navi hunts. On the last one I went a bit crazy with the Castorian Combat 13-ME. I did so because the Navi reward for Stage 6 was Longblades, and sometimes it's just fun to not care at all. It's a game in the end, even when it's costing quite a sum of money. I've bought a Fi/Ra/Co Beast that I've used here on the finisher. In the future I can see myself using that amp more often on smaller BLP weapons where the Dante is too big.
index.php


And that reward sparked some more.
index.php

Longblades have taken the lead again over Clubs :ROFLMAO:

I went to visit the Smugglers in the top secret cave that nobody knows anything about. It was guarded by Nusul with bad loot.
index.php

Part I done! Part II can be done as well with the Wombana (Stage 6 is also good for mindforce skills). I have no idea what Ark is planning to do with this Smuggler mission when the IFN missions are all removed.

After that I took a first test run of the Yuka. The last time I hunted them was end of january / beginning of february of this year. I'm happy to say that I can now handle then better. Still a good challenge, of course, and I still get killed, but I don't enter panick mode any longer then I get three hits in a row.
I'm also shooting Ferans as collectoral damage and to make some progress on their Stage 6. I tagged a Yuka Old by accident (I try to hunt only the Young and Mature) and then this happened:
index.php

I got one more biggy at the end of the hunt, wich made this a very nice test hunt.
index.php


And in closing I did one more Korwil hunt, where I barely got over 75% return. The Clubs are starting to close in on the Longblades once again though.
index.php


Goals:
62. Completed! Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (1).
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.40 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
76. Finish Korwil Stage 4 (4.323 of 4.800).
77. Max-out Cryogenic Attack Nanochip 9 (L) (30 of 31).
78. New! Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part II (0 of 1). From Part I to Part II. As I've mentioned before this will the Wombana.

There's a lot to unpack, so let's start with the beginning.
I've started off with the last Korwil hunts. Loot wasn't too bad on the first two and I've even made a small profit on the final hunt.
index.php

index.php


I'm very happy with this result. Out of all the Korwil hunts I've made a return on TT of 98,10%. The markup might not be too great (I can sell some of the Cryo chips on auction for a few PEC extra), but I can't complain at all. I only just now see that I gotten to max. 217 HP because of the Athletics reward too lol.

And then it was december first, the sale of the NTI shares.
I came online about 30 minutes after they'd all been sold in a mad rush. I had anticipated that it would sell fast, so I tried to log on earlier, but I never thought it would be all gone in less then half an hour. I was sad and angry that I missed it, because I've desposited a good sum of money to invest in the NTI shares. I think that MindArk screwded over all those players who could not be online at the time of the sale, for wichever reason. It would be better next time when they sell it in batches of a period of 2-3 days. Limiting each player a maximum of shares I don't support, however.
I think the price will go up to about 25 PED, but that's just pure speculation. I've heard others claim out of envy that it will drop to 5 PED. Yet those are the same that lost out of the sale and are hoping to buy shares in three months time. After wich the ROI will magicly increase, because the first buyers aren't allowed to profit but they themselves are.
Some friends of mine from Laid Back were in time and got the shares that they wanted and I'm happy for them.

I tried hunting Wombana, but my heart wasn't in it. For the Codex rewards I always pick one at random and for each Rank of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 I do the best out of three. Yet when I got to Rank 5 Wombana there was no best to speak off. Out of my head it was Vehicle Repairing, Telepathy and Translocation.
index.php


We decided to do a teamhunt on New Treasure Island this weekend and I wanted to join in. The sale of the NTI shares teached me a lesson. I've been focusing too much on completing the IFN mission here on Arkadia and too little (or none at all) on the wider Entropia Universe and to do whatever I like. The game became more a competition against far better (and richer) players then a game that I will play for fun.

When I landed on Calypso I went first for the Traeskerons, because I still had a mission to kill 200 of them open. I thought these were gone long ago, but apperently not and I've even gotten the next stage. The hunt was fun and the result recent.
Then I went to hunt Fungoid for the daily and after that Thorifoid to get more skills in Mutant Looter. Man, the Beserkers are not my friends. They're more agressive then Korwils and hit me harder too. The loot wasn't good, but I do wish to return there when I have a bit more skills.

On saturday I woke way too early and hunted Calypso Punies for the bone samples. I only gotten like 25 of those, making this a mission that I can't complete in one lifetime lol.
In the beginning of the evening I started with the daily Argonauts. I couldn't finish those before the Laid Back teamhunt. First round terrible, second round great lol.
The teamhunt itself was short, but fun. We started on New Treasure Island with the deathly Globsters, switched to Furors but those were too easy again. Tried the big Hogglo and failed and then left for some Proterons. I started as a healer, got distracted by messages from real life friends and then started shooting just when the globals started to pop lol.

Like the baby Proterons I also have had a mission on Rextelum open. I started those late in the evening, but the loot was bad then. Sunday morning I started with another daily Fungoid, loot was terrible and then went back to the Rextelum. The loot was better and I finished that mission too.

index.php

index.php


For the last hunt on Calypso I wanted to do the Daily 1. I went for the pupugi nest behind the Drones and Troopers. But when I checked my progress I noticed my mistake. The daily was for the other wasps: Igni! So I went to Eos and started running and shooting Molisks on the way. Then I was the announcement of JBK for the warp to Arkadia and so I ended it there and then and hopped on the ride.
Back on Arkadia I did one small Wombana hunt to break the Longreach 4 (L).

Goals:
69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (27.48 of 30.00).
71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
76. Completed! Finish Korwil Stage 4 (4.323 of 4.800).
77. Max-out Cryogenic Attack Nanochip 9 (L) (30 of 31).
78. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part II (0 of 1). From Part I to Part II. As I've mentioned before this will the Wombana.
79. New! Finish Wombana Stage 6 (27.061 of 60.000). I want to finish these at least for two reasons. First because of the Smuggler mission and second for the reward wich will help me to max-out the Cry chips 9 and 10.

Now I'm thinking what to do with the PEDs that I've desposited for the NTI Shares. My budget to upgrade is ~15k and any suggestions are welcome.

And one last closing thought. Because I've came to the conclusion that I should broaden my Entropia Universe Horizon and enjoy more of whatever is out there, I might just do some hunts in Merry Mayhem this year too. Let's see how that turns out for me!

After reading this for the first time, I can tell you really love Entropia, its nice to see :) . As for the newly acquired budget, I would get rid of that Stalker and get something like a M&L 35 adjusted if you have the levels for it, using that stalker unmaxed is just throwing away ped. You could even switch to laser and get a Zorra which is more dps, nice range and much cheaper. If that doesn't tickle your fancy then I would just shoot that ped away in the upcoming mayhem. I know you say you just play for fun but the MU from tokens and boxes will help sustain your pedcard for many more hunting adventures around Entropia. Best of luck (y)

So your return rate is 92.9%. Can you get enough markup to cover that -52k?

2021 Summary

I used to do a summary of the past year when I had my huntingblog at ArkForum, and so I'll do the same here.
The year had it's ups and downs, ending with a break from Entropia early in december.

A few of the highlights are:
- I discovered the Arcticus Harness (F) on Next Island.
- One Korwil Über of 1116 PED.
- One Handed Clubber (Hit) has reached the milestone of Level 60, and has become #1 too.
- I looted from Navi both a Gravis GLP-27 and -36.

I've cycled through 241.997,56 PED the past year, wich is not far from 50k less then the year 2020. Of those PEDs 231.093,81 (95.49%) was the decay from weapons, ammo, enhancers and amplifiers. My defense bill for armour and faps was 10.630,52 PED (4.39%), wich is less percentage wise then 2020. A small 0.11% (273,22) was the cost of everything else, from pills to the use of TP-chips to the decay of my scanner.
I got back 227.337,48 PED, or a return of 93.94% TT-in vs. TT-out. This is a better result then I had in 2020. It's still a loss though of 14.660,08 over a total of 304 hunts.

I've completed the following missions on Arkadia and Next Island:
Stage 1: Snow Drake
Stage 2: Great White Shark ; Storm Drake
Stage 3: Teladon ; Yuka ; Togolossi ; Badger_710R ; Yellow Papoo ; Grey Papoo ; Mountain Boar ; Shark ; Brown Papoo

On Arkadia I got to the following Codex ranks (in steps of 5):
Rank 5: Otorugi ; Arkadian Hornet ; Oweko ; Tiarak ; IFN Defense Bot ; Zadul ; Oratan ; Oompa ; Bokol ; Aakas Dig ; Jori ; Magurg ; Oro ; Korwil ; Nusul ; Navi ; Wombana
Rank 10: Otorugi ; Tiarak ; Oweko ; IFN Defense Bot ; Zadul ; Bokol ; Oro ; Nusul ; Korwil ; Navi ; Jori
Rank 15: IFN Defense Bot ; Oweko ; Oro

And on Calypso the Codex ranks are:
Rank 5: Mulmun ; Maffoid ; Traeskeron ; Thorifoid ; Rextelum

On Next Island it was a bit slower:
Rank 5: Papoo ; Boar ; Shark ; Drake

And one trip to Cyrene for #bosshunting did this for me:
Rank 5: Pleak
Rank 10: Pleak

I made two graph to get an idea of how the results vary from hunt to hunt.
index.php

Here you can see for each hunt # on the x-axis (first hunt of 2021 is #1, it's not the same as the numbers in this blog, because I've started end of 2015) how much the total return % is for 2020 on the y-axis. The view can be a bit misleading, because there's a huge range in hunting costs. With the cheapest I've only spend 8,06 PEDs (Hunting Jori with Cryogenic #3 and #2 after doing a small Aakas-key run). While the most expense has been a hunt of 2990,17 PEDs (Hunting almost 325 Korwil and getting shit in return).

index.php

This graph shows the accumulated hunting costs on the x-axis versus the accumulated return on the y-axis. It's a rocky path all the way down lol.

In earlier summaries I added a Top 5 mobs (good and bad), but last year I ommitted it. Now I want to add it here again, because I'll try to adjust my ways of playing. I hunted all mobs in this list at least 4 times in 2021.
Five good mobsReturn %Five bad mobsReturn %

Otorugi105,2Badger_710R85,1
Storm Drake103,0Togolossi85,6

I've also looked at wich months are good and wich are bad, because some say that events like Mayhem or the summer vacation of MindArk has an influence on our returns.
January92,0%
February95,0%
March93,5%
April89,6%
May97,7%
June97,4%
July88,6%
Augustus93,5%
September105,4%
October92,4%
November93,1%
December89,6%

It's a better look then I had previous year.
In may I spend two weeks on Next Island and then again a few days in june.
In may I also spend a few days on Calypso.
Septermber was also the month where I got the 1116 PED Korwil HOF, but otherwise I haven't gotten anything special then.
I was on Calypso a short while in december, hunted Wombana too (see good/bad mobs) and it's the month where the break started, of course.

I logged in yestereve for the first time in weeks. I hunted Wombana for a little bit, but I have no idea how this year will look for me on Entropia. Maybe, from looking at the good/bad mobs I'll go for Next Island for a good while.

I'll reply to the comments made next time!

Best wishes to you all for 2022!
