    I believe this can be misleading as skill gain values are not one to one.
    Before a hunt I pull up the profession window and hover with the mouse over the progression bar for the (dmg) and (hit) of the weapon I am going to use and write it down. After the hunt I do the same. This gives a very accurate comparison number.

    sorry, but you seem to not understand, damage/pec, not by any site... by making my own calculation, how much damage i do, and how much does it cost me. thats why i calculate the weapon decay seperatly.

    Hunting daikiba with an opalo isn't eco, it's just cheap.

    Don't expect to even come close to becoming self sustaining until you can:
    1) Hunt something that has decent MU loot
    2) Hunt something where your last shot isn't like 10% overkill.

    your not crazy

    I have been playing this game since 2007. There is a difference in loot and the way the game is played from the last VU to this. Dementic i agree with just about everything you said, That is a lot of money to spend on a game.


    since the new VU i may have deposited 4 times. throughout the game i must have spent 400 or 500 dollars if that much. Being I had to buy ammo, repair, armor, weapons, waste money through the learning curve of the game. I mostly hunt low mobs. I think what your limit of low mobs change as you raise your skill level.

    I think that MA is getting the hint that this is a global recession. The loot is much better since the last time I played. Which tells you how much I deposit these days. I fo have to say, If I wanted to totally sell everything TT I would have a lot of USD money back , and the added plus of all my skills I would have my money back plus some.

    My advice to Dementic is to keep to the shinibas, but sometimes gen Bots 01, 02, and berry's are good too. Esecially the bots sometimes drop stones also, and can global. It's like mining and hunting at the same time. I find argos take up too much ammo to be eco.

    here is what is wrong with your "Eco hunt"...
    I didnt read all the posts so i may repeat someone.

    1. You need A101 for your opalo or CCC amp (CCC is a tt food for most Evis hunters so u may as someone to help)
    2. If you hunt young daiki/shink u do over kill way too offten with this opalo. Get some finishing weapon wih 3-4 dmg.
    3. Your mob of choise... daiki are BS from MU point of view. Better find some mob that drops higher MU items.
    4, the size of your ped card... too small... u already deposited so and if you cant make them grow you have to readjust your strategy. I managed to get to lvl65 laser and blp sniper with no deposit at all... also lvl50 miner. All is about balance between storage and cash. U cant TT everything and expect profit after all .

    Hope it helps... GL
    Alex
