    pSyCHe's Hunting Log

    Hello,
    I have been playing this game for a while now. I have finished the puny iron missions and the shinkiba iron missions. Now, I am working on the Berycled iron mission. I was not hunting very eco for the puny and shinkiba. Just did not have much idea about how to be eco. My return was awful. After reading Mark's "how to survive post" I decided to give it a try. It had help my return significantly (thank's for the guide). I had just been hunting and not keeping track. Recently, I have been reading several hunting logs and I would like to start recording, tracking, and sharing my results. I'm hoping that my results will be helpful.

    My set up:
    *I decided to buy the amp and I will be switching between the melee and the ranged. This way I can make use of the 101% shrapnel and gain the benefits of the melee skilling.
    Castorian Combat EnBlade-B(L) + Melee Trauma Amp I
    Castorian Survival EnBlade-B(L)
    or
    Omegaton m2100A1(L) + ZX Sinkadus
    Castorian Survival EnBlade-B(L)
    CDF Scout with Armor Plating Mark.2a
    Vivo s10.

    I will try to update every five run.

    My current profit is

    overall profit tt= -361.02 ped
    overall return%= 96.68%
    total tt spent (tt in)= 10,863.95 ped
    total loot gained (tt out)= 10,503.01 ped

    Iron Challenges Complete:
    -Puny
    -Shinkiba

    Good Luck Mate. Iv been recording my hunts also except using a Excel Document. So far i'm up 650 ped because of a HOF. Otherwise I would be at a 90% return also.

    Your defense cost feels a bit high at ~4%. If you are feeling a bit over-protected, maybe consider switching to a lower-end armor set or do it partially naked. Another option is investing in a X2 rifle + A102 which will give you more DPS and range, but beware of overkill.

    Other than that, your setup looks fine. Good luck and keep us updated!

    Thank you for the suggestion. Which armor should I try(I do have the adjusted Harrier from the gold beginner package and the cdf scout harness and thigh from beginner missions. I'm not sure how eco those armors are). I guess I can try a new set up(partial naked) for the next five 50ped ammo runs, and see if there are much improvement on the defense cost. I don't think I will invest in a high cost rifle and amp just yet. Perhaps until I move on to another mob with more hp.

    Try the armor adviser: http://www.entropiawiki.com/ArmorAdviser.aspx

    Against Berycled Youngs, the stats are:

    - Adj. Musca: avg. 4.8 damage, 0.50 PEC decay
    - CDF Scout: avg. 9.75 damage, 0.17 PEC decay
    - Adj. Harrier: avg. 10.75 damage, 0.11 PEC decay

    So, for example, if you downgrade to CDF Scout, you will save about ~67% on armor decay but also take ~5 more damage per hit, which however have to end up as fap cost. Therefore, it is a problem of balancing the two to minimize the total defense cost. Ideally, you want just enough protection where your natural regeneration can keep up with the damage taken, and only use a fap for emergency (e.g. critical hits). You will need to experiment for a bit and find out the best combination.

    Good luck to you pSyCHe!!!

    Glad was able to inspire you ^^.

    Seems you are doing well at 96%

    Edit: PkmX is right, Adj Musca for Bery Young is too much protection however you never have to slow down or heal, so I opted for CDF Scout + 3A plates this amount of protection compliments my health and evade though the plate set alone costs about 100 PED to acquire, that might not help your budget.

    Get the S10 from the gauntlet mission and go naked / go smaller armor and use that to heal.

    It will not cost much since it's pretty eco, as a side benefit you get heal skills as well.

    Too much worrying about armors ) You can use anything mate with a bit of impact in it, normal pixie, A.R.C Guardian, a few others out there that should be good. Or just use the adj musca which is good for a lot of mobs

    Defense costs will go lower when you upgrade your weapon and get something that will kill the mobs faster, preferably before they reach you

    Keep hunting mate!

    To be honest, I did global more often with the onset of adj musca armour decay

    I would most times at least achieve 2 globals per run on every other run I did .

    Also 4 runs of ZX amp = 55.1296 of used ammo

    Hi

    good luck on puny iron! I used HK110 and naked. Ended up +100 PED, over 2500 bones still banked + fragments and random trash. So pretty decent return on them with that weapon.
