Carabok IFN Stage 4 – Complete

Good morning, Arkadians.

Some good news. I have officially finished the IFN Stage 4 Carabok mission. All caraboks were swunted. All of them! All 5000 of them. I do not want to see a carabok for a while, I tell you! I don’t have the data to tell you cost, profit/loss or anything, only the overall statistics of the last 2487 kills.

Decay: 103.0100 PED
Loot -MU: 88.0117 PED
Loot +MU: 108.4028 PED
Return -MU %: 85.44 PED

Had it not been for Migration on Calypso and Lootius favouring those hunters my return would have been better. The worst return I’ve had so far was 39.85%. Usually its over 80%. If I were to make up for the loss in loot with sweat I’d have to collect nearly 6500 bottles. I might join a sweat circle for that.

I sold off some stored goods like ores, animal muscle oil and oil residue to some local traders to fund my next mission. Halix (young) IFN Stage 4. I’m required to kill 4800 halix. They are far fiercer than carabok and will require a different approach. First of all, I will not swunt them. Secondly, I will use a Piron PBP-0 (L) to tag them – if needed. I will also make use of a healing tool now and again to avoid resurrection at a nearby firebase. I will still use my trusted S.I Psy-Blade. I do love that powerfist.

Yesterday I headed to Courageous Firebase Academy with my gear and killed 129 halix young. It was a nice run in the snow – until I got wet. I decided to move south into the grass to dry up some.

It was a good hunt. Resurrected once and use the turrets once after being chased by older halix. Lootius must have smiled upon me because loot return was 137.03%, without MU. That’s really good. No globals though. They will come, I’m sure of it. My friend Lizzy can’t get them all.

Oh… I heard there is a bounty on Halix Skull. 1000 PED to whoever finds one. It would certainly help with future hunts, but alas, my luck sucks. I’ll just plod along for now.

An absolutely crappy month. Loot has never been as bad as this month. It seems Lootius has favoured the Migration participants on Calypso. Migration should be over within 1-2 months though.
