There is a new post on the devblog about the upcoming Server Cluster Revamp, let’s hope the lag will be decreased in the HQ’s homesystem. Though it has been a lot better the past few days !
Last night was an eventful one ! My first low sec mining up landed me my first pvp kill. Our miner was attacked by a lone kestrel in 0.3 space, he was soon taking care off my my ferox’s missiles and Kikuko’s rifter fire. What was he thinking ? He was also carrying some skill books, not the smartest thing to carry stuff like that around when you go pirating. Anyway we mined quite a bit of Kernite, the payout was nice ;). And yes I got my Ferox now, more on that later.
W00t ! Sold the harpy for 22mil. Had it on sale for 24, but saw a buy order a few jumps from Sobaseki in Nourvoukaiken (sp?), so I packed it up in my Badger I and brought it over there. Put up a buy order at our corp’s forum and hope to get a Ferox soon ;).
Last week I decided that my Eve Career needed a step up. Been playing Eve mostly solo, though the guys in the Eve Uni Corp channel have been very helpful, I felt like I needed to join an active corp in the Calderi part of the galaxy. Checked the eve forums and the recruitment channel for a while and for some reason this corporation looked really interesting, since I am both interested in mission running and the industrial side of Eve. Dropped by their channel last night and they were really friendly and funny, so I decided to join them. I am sure I’ll have a great time with these guys ! Their forums can be found at http://www.rakeriku.co.uk/
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.
Unfortunetely the registration of the domain name this blog is on was expired, so I havent been updating this blog for a while, but it’s now back in full swing :). Will post an update about the past week’s adventures soon !
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 ;).
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.

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…
