    Day 12: A day of making MONEY.

    First, I wanted to start it off pretty chill, watch some Netflix while hoping to find some valuable loot.
    [​IMG]
    There were definitely some ups!
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    And then there were some downs...
    [​IMG] OnionF5

    All in all, the results from a quick 90 minutes of Nightghosts weren't so bad!
    [​IMG]
    And, with some of the best luck I've had on this server in FOREVER, the Red Katana turned out to be a perfect 88 attack OnionBlushOnionBlush

    The rest of the day (so far) was spent by selling more leech, adding up to another 15m to the cash stack and 25 gachapon total on the Bishop!
    If I decide to do more today, I'll update this post accordingly :)

    Day 13? 14? How do I even consider skipped days? (No pictures in today's post because I'm writing this on phone)

    Hi guys! Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday, I'm sure you were all super bummed there wasn't anything posted by me! /s

    I did get a fair few hours in yesterday, but it wasn't really anything too interesting to post, so I'll just keep it to a quick summary. Today won't offer much in terms of playtime either :(

    Anywho, yesterday was another day of good meso-making! I'm glad I can profit from my lazy friends who would gladly pay me for a few hours of leeching them at genins/red slimes/ghost ship/cds/Wolfspiders!

    Sold another 3 hours of leech at cds and did some more Nightghost farming, resulting in a total profit of ~25m yesterday.

    Also, one of the biggest wins yesterday can be fully attributed to FatSlothFatSloth 's kindness. Carrying my dk through yet another pap run FINALLY resulted in a chair!

    Day 14, a busy (but profitable) day, only had time for a quick gach run!

    I had been complaining virtually nonstop about my 5.5-year dry-spell of doing gach run upon gach run without ever landing a CS or WS.....and it sorta paid off? Unfortunately STILL no cs/ws, but this really was a run I couldn't complain about.
    [​IMG]
    I've decided to start keeping track of all gach tickets I exchange from now on, set up a nice little excel sheet for it.
    [​IMG]
    These were the highlights from today's run, some items might be priced slightly optimistically, but it shouldn't be too far off for most of them!

    Super stoked about making some money, this brings me a step closer to replacing the int shield for my mageOnionF2OnionF2


    Edit: VERY sad update, after passing 2x30 on my max stat clean red katana and getting it to this:
    [​IMG]
    I got a little too enthusiastic with my 70s and it boomed :(

    Day 15: It's been a while

    [​IMG]

    Greetings! Seeing how it's been just over a year since the last post in this thread was made, I figured it might be fun to start writing again.

    Where have I been?
    Turns out, 10+ years of playing a wide variety of v62 servers on/off does eventually get monotonous.
    I moved irl, got busy with uni again, quit smoking, lost weight, got back in shape, am generally having a pretty smashing time.
    Which means, now is as good a time as any to absolutely demolish any productive habits I've built up by sinking my hours into a 2005 mushroom game.

    What did I miss?
    [​IMG]

    Changes were made, events were missed (alongside, unfortunately, 100s of potential APRs), prices shot up (wtf happened to gloves), scrolls now have fancy icons that are supposed to make it easier to see what item they are for.[​IMG]

    Where did we leave things?

    Oh boi, compared to the original state of my characters when writing the original post, we've come a fairly long way.
    I now have a heap of 4th job chars (still none at a relevant level), did my fair share of multimaging (and plan to continue doing so), sort of semi-settled on a main?

    Where will this journal go next?
    I have absolutely no idea. I'm still unsure of how to even spend my time back on ML without multimaging.
    I've found joy in playing my Shadower:
    [​IMG]
    It's a nice jack of all trades, master of none. Farming is laidback, pot costs are low, damage is reasonable.
    I intend to play this guy a fair bit, doing daily ravs and trying to accumulate more meso through farming.
    However, if I'm perfectly honest, I'm kinda at a loss for what to really do with him.

    Thankfully, there are MAGES:
    I like multiclienting. I currently have the following mages available to me for farming:
    Snootboop: Lvl 151 ~~goby mule~~ bishop.
    Itadakimasu: Lvl 146 I/L.
    Aestheticism: Lvl 124 I/L.

    Aside from these, I also have 4 more FPs in the making. 2 of them are paused at lvl 75 and 2 of them are getting very close to 120.
    I will probably buy leech on the latter two to get them to 120 soon and then try to figure out a way to farm my way to 130 on both.

    Short term goals:
    • Get FPs to 120
    • Do Zak/Krex on Shad
    • Reach Tier 5 on Shad (T4 atm)
    • Get Shad to JC level so I can bother my friends for even more carries.

    Day 16: An eventful day

    Ok I stayed up a little later than I had intended, so I'll have to speedrun writing this journal entry.

    Shad:
    - Yesterday's daily rav with HiyoHiyo got me my first coin pouch in my ML career!
    - During the same rav, I did a dpm2 test to see how my Assassinate damage was coming along, I think I got around 110m dph. Not very great, but it's a start!

    [​IMG]
    Went on to pass assassinate 30.

    [​IMG]
    Got my ass carried in a Zak run to hit lvl 136 and got coins 2 and 3, slowly building up a bank?

    Started off my morning with some 7F, managed to get back up to ~30%.

    Then today, did 2 more Rav's with my (now lvl 20) assassinate, got slightly better dph numbers!
    [​IMG]


    Me sucking
    Come to Krex, they said. It's great exp, they said.
    [​IMG]

    Luckily, I didn't grief the second run and made my lost exp (no nx for charms) back by a long shot!
    [​IMG]

    Washing stuff:
    [​IMG]
    Sounds pretty good, right?
    [​IMG]
    Should've kept voting during my hiatus.

    Monster Book:
    I used geospizageospiza 's delightful tool to get an overview of my monsterbook:
    [​IMG]
    And I've made a list of the few mobs that I'll be starting my #RoadToTier5 with.

    Other:
    I found enough meso lying around to buy myself the packages to get both of my FPs to 120, so the quad maging may soon commence!

    That should just about do it for today, I'd get into future goals but it's late. Have a good one!

    Day 17: Busy irl, still getting some gains in!

    I won't waste too many words on progress over the past day(s), I was busy IRL.

    Mages:
    We hit 120 on both mages! They're ready to hit 4th job and I'll start farming with them to get em to 130.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I'm not looking forward to getting 3rd and 4th job advancement done for both, but it'll be more than worth it.

    Shad:
    Continued doing daily Ravs, we're up to 6 prestigious coins!

    Also made decent progress on monsterbook, completed the following sets:
    [​IMG]Biner
    [​IMG]Chlorotrap
    [​IMG]Emo Slime
    [​IMG]Dark Fission
    [​IMG]Oly Oly
    [​IMG]Pac Pinky
    [​IMG]Scaredy Scarlion
    [​IMG]Ratatula
    [​IMG]Selkie Jr.
    [​IMG]Rodeo
    [​IMG]Charmer
    [​IMG]Gallopera


    After all of this, we've made it back up to 72.5%
    [​IMG]


    As for future plans:
    - Farm all Excavation Site cards
    - Get to 137
    - Get multimaging sorted out again

    Day 18: Not real progress, but progress?

    BOOM

    [​IMG]

    BOOM

    [​IMG]

    BOOM

    [​IMG]
    (I did this on 2 chars and my finger hurt so bad)

    BOOM

    [​IMG]

    Nothing special really happened aside from just getting all the multimage stuff sorted and prepared.
    Did like 30 minutes of it with HiyoHiyo providing me with mw in return for free exp.

    One of the mages is 122, the other is 120. I think once the latter reaches 121, I won't need mw anymore and I can just afk my way to 130 and then potentially on to other things.

    Day 19: Babysteps

    Unfortunately, rl obligations are keeping me a little pressed for time. I don't really have time to sink hours into card hunting or any tasks that take a lot of time, so it's just quick 30 minute multimage sessions spread throughout my day.

    Mages:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The first bit of farming has been logged! Slowly starting to get the ball rolling again, hoping to get them to 130 a.s.a.p. so I can switch to some more profitable options.

    Shad:
    [​IMG]
    And, I proudly reserved one SP to be my first point into Smokescreen (I had never really bothered socialising before, so bossing was never a thing, so smoke was obsolete).
    However, when I wanted to be a good padawan and live up to SobletSoblet's explicit instructions to get Smokescreen, I realised that I had not yet unlocked itOnionF6

    [​IMG]
    Daily damage test at ravana now that I leveled, slowly climbing!


    upload_2022-3-5_23-1-1.png

    Believe it or not, this has been my most rewarding gach run since I came back to ML. Special shoutout to WizKhalifa for getting banned for paperweighting.

    Goals:
    - Unlock smokescreen
    - Get mages to 130
    - Get shad to 145 for JC
    - Get back to cardhunting when I have more time.

    Day 20: No notable luck yet, but we'll keep pushing on.

    Didn't really feel like actively playing the shad all too much today, did get some magefarming done.

    Screenies:

    Woooo yaaaaay gaching so funnnn, at this point I think I'm closing in on like a 300k EV since my return :^)

    Day 21: An update, future plans, random stuff.

    [​IMG]

    Your wish is my command. I am but a humble waster of time.

    Shad

    Quick highlight: [​IMG] I finally broke rank 10.000 (Probably entirely because of RWT bans, shut up)

    Ok, so you guys remember how I said I genuinely didn't know what to do with my shad? 7F felt kinda whack, but the exp is insane. Trying to find profitable grinding maps was honestly very doable because there's so many viable options.
    HOWEVER, when's the last time I played this game without having it turn into a (mediocre) attempt at optimising my every second spent playing?
    BOOM
    [​IMG]
    You got that right, I needed another sheet.
    BOOM
    [​IMG]
    ANOTHER ONE.
    BOOM
    [​IMG]
    Stat update after washing out like 30 excess str/dex.

    BOOM
    [​IMG]
    Buying scar service and getting this junk.

    SOMETHING ELSE?

    [​IMG]
    Who doesn't want another lvl10 T10? I'm by no means the first to do it and it's by no means a creative idea anymore, but I figured I would someday want a very washed BM anyways so I'll keep this on the side.

    Random stuff

    LEARNING SINGLISH:[​IMG] SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe

    Oh also I gached and it sucked
    [​IMG]


    Future plans:
    • Probably spend my time split 50/50 between farming meso and grinding 7F, getting to JC level sounds fun, but I need meso.
    • Save up to 400m so I can buy a 30 att Dkhanjar
    • Progress towards Tier 10 because SobletSoblet reminded me how relevant it is for shads (after HiyoHiyo tried to remind me for years and I never once listened)
    • Buy a wifi card for my desktop so I can actually multimage on a proper dual monitor display again instead of my 15" laptop that can barely run 4 clients.

    Day 22: Learning new things, progressing, living my bestest shad life.

    Seeing how I didn't really do anythingn mage- or alt-related, I'll just stick to talking about my shad.

    First of all, I realised I hadn't done a gear screenie of my shad, so here it is:
    [​IMG]
    Now you all know how embarassing my dragon khanjar is, hence the need for an upgrade. The specs could be better, but they were a fun cs gamble in a time where I had meso to spend. After the Dkhanjar, cape is next on the list of very necessary upgrades. Already in the process of getting a better helm, but that's no rush.

    Revealing my scroll of secrets, will fitness make me a billionaire?
    no.
    [​IMG]
    Credits to myself for being an amazing hypeman.

    Today was a very productive day, though.
    Grinded for an initial 10%, farmed 10 (!!!!!!) card sets, bringing me very close to reaching Tier 5, at which point I'll make a new screenie of my book.
    Also did daily ravs, got 1 coin to split among me and a guildy, nothing special there.
    Was supposed to run zakky tonight, turned into me losing my cwk virginity:
    [​IMG]
    Ended up using over twice as many pots as SobletSoblet noted would be enough, because my 4.6k hp shad needed to pot every hit in order not to die.
    [​IMG]
    I was ready.
    [​IMG]
    Thank god for my readiness.
    [​IMG]
    Godly dpm.
    [​IMG]
    Got this baby cause guildy that wanted a MoN-run was afk :^)

    AFTER RUN REWARDS, WILL CWK MAKE ME RICH?
    No.
    [​IMG]
    OK IF IT SUCKS CLEAN WE'LL JUST MAKE IT GREAT WITH 30s.
    [​IMG]
    YES.
    [​IMG]
    NO.

    CWK exp on a lvl 138 is nutty tho, gained a good 30ish %.
    Final update:
