    Here’s a summary for you to read.

    24 July 2023
    Start meso: 200k meso
    Reserves: 2bil meso

    Main Activities and Highlights:
    • Farmed many many hrs at Dual Ghost Pirate
    • Farmed 12hrs+ at A Desolate Cemetery
    • Farmed some 5hrs+ at Skeles
    • Gotten a Chaos Scroll from common gacha
    • Gotten 2 Brown Work Gloves from 100 exchange
    • Gotten Shadow Stars 20 drop from Brexton

    Item Trades, Scrollings and Spendings:
    • Traded 12 DEX Single Earring + 150mil meso for 13 DEX Gold Emerald
    • Spent 105mil meso to make 18 DEX, 2 LUK Green Pirate Skirt
    • Spent 100mil meso after recovery sales to make 1 STR, 4 DEX Spectrum Goggles
    • Spent 85mil meso to make 19 DEX Green Pirate Skirt
    • Spent some amount of ~50mil meso on shoe scrolling
    • Spent 200mil on a 13 DEX, 3 LUK Osfa Boots, sold for 70 pcoins (~231mil meso)
    • Spent 100mil meso on TMA 170 Wand 5 for my F/P
    • Spent 237mil on scrolling and booming two Spectrum Goggles, and a +4, 6 DEX Rat Mouth
    • CSS20 + 30% Rat Mouth to 8 DEX and sold for 100 pcoins (~330mil meso)
    • Spent some amount of not sure how much on random stuff

    04 Sep 2023
    End meso: ~400mil meso worth of items, pcoins + meso
    Reserves: 2bil meso

    If I take away the lucky meso from CS and BWG, totaling to around 362mil meso, I’d have 38mil meso. If I consider SS20 drop to be lucky as well, then I’m almost zero.

    You win some, you lose some! Get back in the saddle and don't dwindle on missed gains.

    From how I see is an overall gain for sure. Got what I wanted and have 400mil meso worth.

    Still have my 2/3 goggles as well, and 2 level ups.

    I was informed by a friendly player that there is a 2/4 goggles on sale for 300mil, which is actually lower than what I’d offer while I was searching for it the other time.

    I ignored the accuracy stats since in my case it’s not important. A clean 2/2 usually goes for 60-75mil meso. Scrolling it to a 2/4 has an expected cost of 400-500mil, which was about what I had intended to offer previously. Scrolling from a clean 2/1 has an expected cost of over 700mil meso.

    Although I’ve kinda achieved my goal, this 2/4 can be seen as an upgrade.

    With this goggles, I’ll only need to use topwear str 70% scrolls on a 6/2 blouse instead of having to 30% the first slot, increasing the overall chance significantly. This should result in a 14/6/2, replacing my current 15/5/3. I’d then be able to swap out my 19 dex skirt back to my 18 dex, 2 luk skirt, gaining me a net +1 luk overall.

    Selling my 19 dex skirt and 1/4 goggles would get me back a good portion of meso spent on 2/4 goggles.

    So I guess I’ll revisit DGP in the future for some 6/2 blouse hunt.

    I know 0-slot, 8wa cape cost around 1bil. Found dis 2-slots at 700mil.

    Bought it straight away and checked https://forum.maplelegends.com/index.php?threads/u-guys-r-overpaying-for-capes.50853/

    [​IMG]

    According to the table in the forum thread above, 2-slots 8wa cape is worth around 477 PCoins in terms of production cost.

    Not sure if anyone would buy it. If not, it's actually a bargain upgrade to a 8wa cape from my current 0-slot 7wa cape, which I could probably sell for around 500mil.

    New clean range from 7wa -> 9wa.

    [​IMG]

    Listing the 7wa up for sale at 600mil, hoping to trade for a 14wa BWG as well.

    I might consider lower it for a 14wa YM. See how it goes.

    Wow, I didn't realize someone made a Cape Price Chart. That's amazing, I always assumed there was some sort of calculations based on Chaos percentages, but never saw it fleshed out. Kudos to you getting a good deal on your cape!

    Thanks! I have been practicing a lot.

    I love these kinds of charts, although it's a little ugly, I appreciate it very much. It's the function that counts, just like the ugly Yellow Markers.

    Didn’t expect to be back at DGP farming so soon. My plan is to hunt for 6/2 Green Pirate Blouse and scroll for 14 str, since I had gotten a 2/4 goggles.

    I’ll sell my 19 dex skirt and 1/4 goggles. Although I have the option to CSS my 1/4 goggles for a potential 1/5, the chance is too low to risk. I can probably sell it for 100-150mil meso, and the skirt for 100mil meso maybe?

    Still thinking if I actually want a 14wa attack gloves. Depending on the price of GFA30 during the event, I might try scrolling a 12wa Blue Aneline instead. With 5 dex, 4 luk, it’s almost like a 13.8wa equivalent. Opens up to NT dagger option as well with 155 dex. See if a 20+ luk, 130wa happens to pop out.

    It's actually my first Summer Event.
    So far I've played 2 Halloween, 1 Christmas, 2 Anniversary.

    Didn't play any Lunar New Year or Valentine's.
    Not sure if there's any other event I might have missed.

    Hopefully I'll have time to experience New Year Event.

    [​IMG]

    Sold my 1/4 goggles for 53 pcoins.
    Not too bad, considering I spent about 100mil making this, profiting about 73mil.

    [​IMG]

    Never expect keeping random ETCs would be useful.
    Event quest needed 25 tree branches and 25 firewoods.

    [​IMG]

    Did boss pq with Shadower, then jump quest with Bishop.

    [​IMG]

    The jump quest was annoying in the beginning, but got better once I got familiar with the platforms.

    [​IMG]

    Just a low effort entry this time, didn't take many screenshots.

    Decided to retire my Gunslinger after Air/Aerial Strike, the supposed goal, got a drop rate nerfed.
    Mainly because there is no number to gauge what "slightly" is, and what "comparable" even means.

    Might stop playing when event is over if the FM is still bare.

    Had some unexpected sale of a 33wa Maple Claw. A pleasant surprise that it’s still able to sell at 20mil despite all the cheap Maple Claws out there.

    [​IMG]

    Also got rid of my remaining six topwear str 30% scrolls, which I bought under 1.5mil meso each overtime. Only need 70% scrolls now so no point holding onto them anymore.

    [​IMG]

    First 7 raffles. Nothing too impressive.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Still some decent gains. If I can get more than 100 pcoins from raffles, I’ll recommission my Gunslinger.

    Current PCoins: 4

    Went for 4 rounds of BPQ but mostly ded to pinus beam after dispel, on top of the lag.
    Leader got DC in one of the rounds as well.

    HP only 3.7k while beam does almost 5k damage.

    [​IMG]

    Afk-ed too long on a pot map and got too many pots.
    In the end only managed to have enough shovels for 5 blue coins.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    No coins this time.

    See if the daily quiz and some ice boxes can bring me 2 more shovels.
    Find it rather hard to earn points outside of BPQ.

    A little update on my reserves. Previously I was left with 1bil meso after spending them on goggles and att cape.

    [​IMG]

    Currently topped up to 1.2bil. Still have my 7wa cape unsold, as well as my 2/3 goggles.

    Have about 200mil meso outside of reserves to spend.

    [​IMG]

    Got another blue coin for raffle. The process of getting to raffles is actually not that great as compared to the last event, on top of the crappy rate.

    Starting to wonder if I should skip the raffles and farm normally for a more predictable gain.

    [​IMG]

    Bought two Canon Shooters from a buddy, 59wa and 60wa. 59wa got obliterated on the 2nd 30% unfortunately.

    [​IMG]

    60wa passed the first 30% and proceeded to failed a couple of 60%, passing only two of them. With 69wa and last slot remaining, passed another 30%.

    Not too impressive but at least it’s purple! Spent around 7mil total for that.

    [​IMG]

    Doesn’t mean I’m gona play back Corsair. I’d just like to have a complete set of purple text maple guns.
