Two Week Recap

The game has been kind to me the past two weeks. Got a story mission that got me an implant I sold off for 12.5mil, so I could afford a Caracal and a Blackbird. Been mainly using the Caracal to run lvl 2 missions now (mostly for the Caldari Navy). Also got an offer from an agent to exchange a Hawk for a Harpy. The Harpy is now for sale at Sobaseki, hope it sells soon :). I now got the skills to buy a Ferox, just lacking the funds so as soon as it sells, I’ll be flying in that.

The war Eve-Uni was in, was a bit annoying. Basically the Forge region was very unsafe. I found that out while mining in a neighboring region (Ferent). I was chased by two of the enemy, managed to dock safely, but they hang out outside the station for over an hour ! That war is over now fortunetely.

Saving for a Caracal

Currently I am saving up for a new Cruiser, I’ve set my eyes on a Caracel. Currently having a lot of fun with the kestrel. Loaded up with 4 launcher. some sabertoothes and bloodclaws and any npc enemy is toast before they even come close. Well, except for the rare occasion when there’s a lot of them ;). I am doing lvl 1 mission at the moment to rake in some cash. Also getting myself into industries. Sold 2 Keresels for 200k isk a piece and some ammo. Bought some bpc’s on the escrow market, which didnt cost all that much.
Big Blue is currently at war, so we have to be a little careful where we’re going at the moment, but I havent run into any enemies yet, so no loss for me so far. Gives a bit more excitement to the courier missions ;).

Whispers in the dark

Got this storyline mission about a week ago. It’s a four part mission with a nice background story. I was flying a Merlin at the time and only used to level 1 missions, so I was in for a bit of a shock. The object of that mission is to retrieve 10 building blocks from a few industrials.
The first part was easy, cant quite remember what it was, but I got my but handed to me on the second part. Think I managed to aggro just about every enemy ship in the area ;). So I decided to let this one sit in my log, shame since it had an extra 200k Isk bonus. So this weekend I tried it again with my nice new Osprey. Not really the best fighting Cruiser, but it can do the job.

My first Cruiser: An Osprey


Originally uploaded by Morphisat.

Finally finished learning Frigate IV and cruiser. Found an Osprey for 2.8Mil. Didnt have a lot of extra cash for more goodies, but I did equip it with an 10Mn afterburner (which is a must since it’s kinda slow), medium shield booster and a nice shield extender. Got almost 1600hps on the shields now :). Mining works great with 3 cargo expanders in the low slots, and lvl 1 missions are a breeze now…
