    Finally, the moment you all have been waiting for:

    [​IMG]

    Meso Damage - ~860.24 mil
    Dragon Khanjars - 8
    Shield for WAtt 30% - 3/8 (2 booms)
    Clean Slate Scroll 20% - 0/3 (3 booms)
    Chaos Scroll 60% - 2/2

    Attempt 1:
    STR +4
    LUK -3/4/5
    WATT -3
    ljr207-3.png

    Attempt 2:
    STR -1
    LUK +0
    WATT +4
    ljr207-2.png

    What should I ruin it with next?

    Option 1: 34 WAtt
    5x WS60 - ~1.83 bil meso

    Option 2: potential 35 WAtt
    1x 30% (or 1x WS30 - ~766 mil meso if no boom)
    (or 1x WS10 - ~2.2 bil meso)
    4x WS60 - ~1.46 bil meso

    Option 3: potential 40/41 WAtt
    1x CS (or 1x WS+CS)
    if pass:
    ~9% for WAtt +4 (4x WS10 to 40 WAtt)
    ~9% for WAtt +5 (4x WS10 to 41 WAtt)
    Option 1 provides a guaranteed upgrade of 1 WAtt (from 33 to 34), with an expected cost of 1.8 bil meso, which is actually reasonable.
    Given that 32 WAtt is valued around 600 mil and 33 WAtt is close to 2 bil, a 34 WAtt should exceed 3-4 bil, making this a reliable choice.

    Option 2 is the one I'm leaning more towards for the potential of a 35 WAtt at the risk of a 30% chance on one slot attempt.
    However, I could consider increasing my chances with the higher price of WS30 or even an eventual guarantee with 1x WS10 at a significantly higher expected cost of 2.2 bil meso.
    Considering that if I go for the safest route with this option, the total expected cost is less than 4 bil meso, which is definitely lower than its valued price.

    Option 3 gives me twice the chance of potentially getting a 40 WAtt WS project than what a regular 2nd slot CS would give. I would actually feel really bad if the LUK gets reduced. This is currently the least interesting option for me, and I'd rather CS another +1 Dragon Khanjar over this despite the higher chance.

    The problem is usually not about the price but the scarcity of the items. I see a 33 WAtt appearing on the market once in a while, but almost no sightings of 34 WAtt, let alone 35 WAtt.
    So, I'm actually looking to WS10 the next slot as my next option for the 35 WAtt, a 3 WAtt under a 7x WS10 Dragon Khanjar or 5 WAtt under from a CS+5 and 6x WS10.

    I think you should CS + WS again. I like to draw a parallel to brown work gloves in this scenario, since its kind of similar line of stat gain.

    This khanjar is roughly in line with a 7/5 bwg (though worth less due to class specificity and cheaper raw goods, unless bwg / gfa 30 have crashed in the meantime).

    Landing a +4 or a +5 would make this a worthy project to finish off with WS + 10%

    Thanks for your input! It definitely makes sense to compare WAtt to gloves or capes, and it's objectively better as they are common equips. However, it feels better for me to acquire a decent Dragon Khanjar due to the supply. Additionally, my rate of earning isn't exactly high, so I can't attempt these scrolls frequently.

    With that said, I think I will leave this 24 WAtt alone for now as a fallback to make 35 WAtt and consider CS-ing more +1 Dragon Khanjars to see how it goes. If I do get another +4 WAtt, I could attempt a WS + CS.

    Making more +1 Dragon Khanjars.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Currently, two +1 Dragon Khanjars available to Chaos Scroll.

    ljr208-1.png

    Meso Damage - ~969.44 mil
    Dragon Khanjars - 10
    Shield for WAtt 30% - 4/10 (3 booms)
    Clean Slate Scroll 20% - 0/3 (3 booms)
    Chaos Scroll 60% - 2/2

    Attempt 1:
    STR +4
    LUK -3/4/5
    WATT -3
    cs_1.png

    Attempt 2:
    STR -1
    LUK +0
    WATT +4
    cs_2.png

    I'm glad I managed to get a dagger upgrade with my 1k coins when they were at 2.6 mil.

    With coins dropping close to 2 mil meso, it's a good time to Chaos Scroll.
    If I can maintain the earning rate of 19 mil/hr at DGP, I'd be able to afford a Chaos Scroll every 11 hours of farming.

    I also sold the 19 DEX, 2 LUK skirt for 250 mil meso + 71 pcoins about two days ago. The image shows 150 mil because there was a separate trade for the other 100 mil.

    ljr208-2.png

    So now I do have just enough for the next CS attempt if I want to. angelmush

    WOWWWW that's gonna be a sick dkhanjar, congrats!!!
    Such a huge game changer, now it may be a good idea to slam another cs on the 24 att, or even make it 34 att.
    Incredible gains man, happy for you.
    Is the 25 dkhanj going to get WS10 ? 40 att is crazy insane.

    Thanks!

    I was inspired by Darah's earlier this year to consider making a 40 WAtt Dragon Khanjar. Compared to theirs, the end result is going to be lower by 3 Luk, but the 5 Str makes up for about 1.5 Luk, so it's not that far off and definitely worthy of WS10.

    I was hesitant to start CS-ing as I'm usually very conservative with taking risks, but I'm at the point where I'm not going to get anything better without taking any. Since the start of the journal, I've managed to build up my pain tolerance progressively from a lot of failures, but I also got very lucky.

    As for the 24 WAtt, I might take up the suggestion by Akash and attempt a WS+CS.

    If you're expecting the upcoming scroll to be a WS10 project, I'm going to disappoint you by saying that I'm not starting it straightaway.

    Instead, I'm considering WS+CS on the 24 WAtt next. Selling the 24 WAtt could also be an option, perhaps for around 700-800 pcoins?
    If CS passes:
    +3 WAtt -> WS60 into 35 WAtt
    +4 WAtt -> sell the one with fewer Luk
    +5 WAtt -> potential 41 WAtt
    Roughly ~27% total chance for any of the above outcomes, which isn't too bad!

    If the 24 WAtt doesn't result in an upgrade, I'll look into completing 3 slots of WS10 first on the 25 WAtt, so that it becomes 34 WAtt, an upgrade from my current 33 WAtt.

    Also, if you recall earlier this year, I prepared a bunch of equips that I'd consider using CS on.

    [​IMG]

    Between top/bottom and shoes, I think I'll get the most out of the shoes since the 10%/60% scrolls give fewer stats of 3/1 compared to the clothes 3/2. It's also easier to complete with 3 remaining slots after a successful CS. More importantly, shoes are gender-neutral.

    However, there's Facestompers, which is preferred by high-end players. Though I shouldn't be concerned about its resale value since I'll be scrolling it for myself if I decide to do so.

    Sold all my remaining Red Pirate Boots, adding a good amount to my earnings.

    ljr210-1.png

    It's been a while since my last DGP farm; I just didn't have much time to farm lately.

    115 mins with Bishop + Shadower at DGP:

    7.23 mil raw meso
    13.83 mil meso from drops
    90 Power Crystal Ores (~2.63 mil)
    3 Cape for INT 60% (~2.34 mil)

    ljr210-2.png

    Total Meso: 26.03 mil -> 13.58 mil/hr
    72 equip drops in 115 mins -> 1 drop every 1 min 35 sec

    Gacha:
    13 commons
    3 rare

    Total:
    Time: 1,543 mins (25 hrs 42 mins)
    Meso Loot Sale: 74.08 mil
    Meso Gacha: 143.1 mil
    Meso All: 525.12 mil (20.41 mil/hr)
    Equip Drop: 864(1 drop every 1 min 47 sec)
    Gacha Common: 105
    Gacha Rare: 19


    With the sales of loots and gacha pulls below, I'm now averaging over 20 mil/hr in earnings farming DGP! This amount does not include the WS/CS I had gotten.


    13 Commons:

    ljr210-3.png

    ljr210-4.png

    3 Rares:

    ljr210-5.png

    Notable items:
    Gloves for Att 30% - ~18mil
    Earring for Dex 70% - ~3mil
    The rest - ~1mil

    There is an ongoing world leap event in one of the official servers, MapleSEA. There are currently 4 servers, ABCD, and historically, world leap events only allowed leaping from any server into BCD as A was the first and most populated server.

    However, this time, leaping into any world is allowed, and having all of my characters in B, I decided that I want to leap into A so that I have access to a healthier market. Although I haven't been playing for a long time and the last I played was during the release of the 5th job, I just want to prep them in case ML shuts down.

    These are my two favorite characters, lv222 Xenon and lv232 Shadower.

    ljr211-1.png

    My equips are nowhere near the top; I’ve only upgraded them mostly with items that can be obtained by playing the game. MapleSEA is notorious for having the most expensive cash shop, and I couldn't afford them back in the days as a student. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the game a lot and have plenty of fond memories.

    I’ll be performing the leaps for all the characters during ML’s patch maintenance later.

    raysinz5raysinz5 has made this cool Timeless Lubav, which tempted me to make an offer for it.

    ljr212-2.png

    While it's 1 WAtt less than my current 16 WAtt Brown Work Gloves, the 13 Luk more than makes up for it. It also has the potential to gain up to 15 more stats from leveling up if it follows the info Hidden Street has provided. I don’t see myself committing to a gloves upgrade in the near future, so I'm totally fine with this being untradeable.

    If I win the bid, I get an upgrade and can still earn some extra meso by selling the BWG, so I'm happy with it.

    ljr212-3.png

    Then there's the dagger…

    ljr212-1.png

    it’s been lingering in my mind, this ugly piece of equipment. No offense to the person who made it, it’s just a personal preference.

    I’ve decided that once I’m done with my 24 WAtt, 5 slots Dragon Khanjar, my next goal would be to make a 133+ WAtt Pescas so that I can sell away this ugly dagger.

    Close to passing the 7k range clean.

    Following the above event, I'm now poor AF. So I'm not expecting to scroll anything in the near future given my current earning rate.

    Therefore, the frequency of journal updates will decrease drastically, mainly because I've also decided to stop documenting my farms and just do small sessions whenever I can without having to care about the numbers to save some time.

    The next scrolling projects I'm looking at are making a 133+ WAtt Pescas and passing 3x WS10 on my 25 WAtt, 5-slots Dragon Khanjar. For that, I'm looking at earning 10 bil meso to work on both projects, which will take quite some time. With my humble average earning rate of 20 mil/hr, it’d take me 500 hours of farming. If I can squeeze in 1 hour of farming on average every day, it’d take me about 16-17 months total. So I’m expecting something to be done by the end of next year!
