    It's only a 10c increase in offer, considering the dagger owner is majority investor in your gambling scheme they could very well still prefer to sell to you.

    On average, I'd expect a 131wa after leveling up, which isn't much of an upgrade to spend too much on, considering that Pescas requires 10 more Dex and is untradeable. So, I don't feel it's worth spending over 250 coins after accounting for the multipliers from my scheme. At this point, I might prefer spending those coins on three perfect clean Pescas in an attempt to get an 8+wa.

    Okay, guys, I've made a new offer of 265 coins in which I'll be investing the 15 coins myself so I don't get hurt by the multiplier, so we're back in the game.

    However, it's not guaranteed I'll win because I'm up against a rich player, and 300 coins are probably just small change. But at least I have some crowd funding to support my cause.

    Also added the level-up table here for convenience.

    [​IMG]

    2-: 0x at 8.64%
    3-: 0.4x at 20.99%
    3+: 0.4x at 91.36%
    4+: 1.2x at 79.01%
    5+: 1.4x at 60.49%
    6+: 1.8x at 39.51%
    7+: 2.4x at 20.99%
    8+: 3.2x at 8.64%

    From the above, there's a 79.01% chance that you will profit, which is pretty high I guess? And an 8.64% chance that you will lose all coins.

    Hey there! If you missed the chance to invest in my dagger purchase, here's your lucky break! Every 100 mil meso spent in my store at FM 2-2 :> gets you 5 investor's coins for the 126wa Timeless Pescas purchase, giving you the chance to earn up to 16 p-coins!

    However, there's a limited supply of 15 investor's coins, available while stocks last.

    ljr166-2.png

    ljr166-1.png

    ljr166-3.png

    Update: 5/15 investor's coins redeemed.

    Welp, sorry guys, game's off. I've read your feedback and tried, but 300 coins just isn't worth it anymore.

    Those whom I've given the Investor's Coins, which is equivalent to Prestigious Coins, will be kept for future investments. Otherwise, if you want to redeem them as p-coins, feel free to let me know!

    Once again, thanks for the support!

    I tried farming in Memory Lane 5 for Piece of Time as I had the idea of crafting Reverse/Timeless daggers myself instead of just waiting for the weekly Pink Bean runs drops.

    ljr168-4.png

    Crafting a Reverse/Timeless dagger is definitely more expensive compared to buying the PB drops, but in exchange, I'd be able to acquire them faster.

    ljr168-6.png

    After doing the crafting cost table, making a perfect Timeless Pesca would cost 3-4x more on average than if I were to buy them.

    Anyway, I've always heard that the earnings of a solo Shadower at ML5 are better than a multi-mage at Ulu1. So I'm going to farm with Bishop and Shadower and see how it goes.

    ljr168-5.png

    After countless hours of dual-client farming at DGP, dual farming at ML5 feels pretty comfortable, with the first hour of earnings yielding very good results.

    ljr168-3.png

    I think I'm just lucky with the Helmet Int 60% scrolls drop this time, having three drops, and it should distribute itself as I spend more time here. Nevertheless, if at least one drops every hour, it's easily more than 12 mil meso/hr here, without accounting for gacha drops.

    ljr168-2.png

    60 mins with Bishop + Shadower at Memory Lane 5:

    3.1 mil raw meso
    2.9 mil meso from drops
    3 Piece of Time ~ 3 mil
    4 OA Str 60% ~ 1.2 mil
    3 Helmet Int 60% ~ 19.5 mil
    Total Meso: 29.7 mil -> 29.7 mil/hr


    My Timeless wand's second level up is done. I was hoping that farming the Temple of Time would provide some positive timeless energy to the wand, but sadly, the stats gain isn't too good.

    ljr168-1.png

    Stats Gained: Timeless Enreal Tear
    Level 1: 1/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 3: -
    Level 4: -
    Level 5: -

    Again, this wand will absorb all the bad luck, and the next one will be good!

    The third level up of the wand still yielded below-average magic gains.

    ljr169-1.png

    Stats Gained: Timeless Enreal Tear

    Level 1: 1/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 3: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 4: -
    Level 5: -

    I wonder if it can go above 2 since, according to Hidden-Street, it can gain up to 4.

    ljr169-2.png

    Pretty unlucky with leveling up stats so far.

    Also, spent another 105 minutes at ML5 with no Helmet Int 60% scroll drop, but still got close to 12 mil/hr, so it isn't that bad.

    105 mins with Bishop + Shadower at Memory Lane 5:
    6 mil raw meso
    5.9 mil meso from drops
    8 Piece of Time ~ 8 mil
    1 OA Str 60% ~ 300 k
    Total Meso: 20.2 mil -> 11.54 mil/hr


    Saw a purple name 10wa cape for sale and decided to make an offer for it.

    ljr169-3.png

    I think a 10wa cape might be the last cape I'll use for a long time; then, I'll be fully focused on getting the dagger upgrade.

    Seeing how disappointing the wand level-ups have been so far, I bought another Reverse Aeas Hand and managed to pass 2x30% and 3x60%, resulting in 161 TMA with 3 level-ups available.

    ljr170-2.png

    Considering that the wand is only at 156 TMA with only 2 level-ups remaining, I decided to 70% all its remaining slots,

    ljr170-3.png

    which surprisingly passed all 3 slots.

    ljr170-1.png

    This brought it to 165 TMA with 2 level-ups available. Now, both the wand and staff have a pretty good chance to go over 170 TMA

    165 tma Timeless Wand: 2 level-ups remaining
    up to 2-4 Int, 2-8 ma, 169-177 tma
    161 tma Reverse Staff: 3 level-ups remaining
    up to 3-6 Int, 3-12 ma, 167-179 tma​

    Did another 75 mins at ML5, but this time with really bad earnings—only dropped 1 Piece of Time and no Helmet Int 60% scrolls at all. It seems like this map relies heavily on RNG.

    ljr171-4.png

    75 mins with Bishop + Shadower at Memory Lane 5:
    4.4 mil raw meso
    3.4 mil meso from drops
    1 Piece of Time ~ 1 mil
    3 OA Str 60% ~ 900 k
    Total Meso: 9.7 mil -> 7.76 mil/hr

    Also, I got a little impatient with leveling the wand, so I went to Skele instead and leveled up the remaining within an hour.

    ljr171-3.png

    ljr171-1.png

    ljr171-2.png

    Stats Gained: Timeless Enreal Tear
    Level 1: 1/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 3: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 4: 2/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 5: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma

    The wand leveled up to a pretty okay 172 TMA. It seems like anything more than 2 magic attack gain will remain a mystery for now.

    The first level-up of the Reverse staff is done, and sadly, it's just a 1 magic attack gain.

    ljr172-4.png

    Stats Gained: Reverse Aeas Hand

    Level 1: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: -
    Level 3: -

    164 tma Reverse Staff: 2 level-ups remaining
    up to 2-4 Int, 2-8 ma, 168 -176 tma
    While it's still possible to achieve a higher TMA than the wand, it doesn't seem likely given how bad the rolls are so far.

    Also, I bought the 10wa cape! I can finally give my cape upgrade closure and fully focus on the dagger upgrade.

    ljr172-1.png

    And, thanks again to Feen for sending another crafting GDK my way!

    ljr172-2.png

    I've been collecting them in preparation for another batch of crafting Dragon Kanzirs.

    ljr172-5.png

    However, Dragon Scales are currently still expensive at more than 90k meso each. I could farm some of them myself while leveling my Reverse/Timeless weapons. Hopefully, I'm able to get another dagger to level up soon.

    The final two level-ups are done, and I finally got a +3 magic attack, so now we know +3 MA is possible.

    ljr173-1.png

    ljr173-2.png

    Stats Gained: Reverse Aeas Hand
    Level 1: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: 1/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 3/4 ma
    Level 3: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma

    Sadly, it's only 171 TMA, although 1 magic short, it looks much cooler than the wand and is definitely usable.


    Here are all the previous level-ups, for science:

    Stats Gained: Timeless Pescas
    Level 1: 0/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 0/2 wa
    Level 2: 1/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 2/2 wa
    Level 3: 0/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 2/2 wa
    Level 4: 1/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 0/2 wa
    Level 5: 1/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 1/2 wa

    Stats Gained: Timeless Pescas
    Level 1: 0/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 0/2 wa
    Level 2: 1/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 2/2 wa
    Level 3: 1/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 1/2 wa
    Level 4: -
    Level 5: -

    Stats Gained: Timeless Pescas
    Level 1: 0/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 1/2 wa
    Level 2: 0/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 1/2 wa
    Level 3: 1/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 1/2 wa
    Level 4: 0/1 Str, 1/2 Luk, 0/2 wa
    Level 5: 1/1 Str, 2/2 Luk, 0/2 wa

    Stats Gained: Timeless Enreal Tear
    Level 1: 1/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 2: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 3: 2/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 1/4 ma
    Level 4: 2/2 Int, 0/1 Luk, 2/4 ma
    Level 5: 1/2 Int, 1/1 Luk, 2/4 ma


    It feels really good to have achieved all other gear goals and be able to fully focus on the dagger. This has been the longest consecutive period I have played ML, and I believe it's largely due to starting a journal to log all my progress. It makes everything organized, and I always have a clear goal on what I want to do next. It also allows me to look back at all the milestones I have achieved.

    Hopefully, I'll be able to see some results for my dagger by the end of this year.

    There aren’t many cheap Elemental Wands in the market, but managed to acquire four Wand 5 and 6 for 1 mil meso or below, and successfully scrolled one into a 171 TMA Wand 6 using the usual method: passing 60%/70% scrolls until reaching at least 154 TMA with 2 or more slots left, then using 30% scrolls on the rest in an attempt to achieve 170 TMA and above.

    ljr175-2.png

    With this wand, I can now sell my 176 TMA Wand 6 for a fortune.

    ljr175-3.png

    Consequently, I decided to splurge on crafting materials for round three, enough to craft a total of 46 Dragon Kanzirs.

    ljr175-1.png

    However, my laptop battery was running out, so I had to stop here. Fingers crossed for a positive outcome this time!

    105wa: 2 :(

    Looks like crafting luck is really bad this time... :arghh:

    While I did say I'm not gonna scroll anything less than 105wa, there just isn't anything in the market right now. So, I tried scrolling those 100wa and above...

    After trying my hand at scrolling daggers over a hundred times, I've concluded that maybe scrolling daggers just isn't for me. Consequently, I've opted to convert my remaining meso into coins, ensuring a consistent reserve of 1k coins. Now, I'll patiently await the appearance of a 130+wa dagger in the market.

    ljr177-2.png

    During this period, I'll engage in casual farming to slowly rebuild my wealth and indulge in occasional, light-hearted scrolling sessions for fun.
