Wolta’s hour:- Wolta reports that the Horrors were sparse at the beginning and a gain of 2.86% in Captain skill. Loot seemed reasonable.

Space Skilling Saturday 238 (At Rocktropia IV)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1805 MA.
Present:- Ntina and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Cee’s 12 years in EU

I arrive with little time to spare but am ready on time. Nocturaline and Phil have taken planet leave so I wait for Wolta who does not arrive. At 1805 I head out solo, disbanding the team on the way. And yes, 12 years ago on this day was my first day in EU, much has changed.

Cee’s two hours:- Ntina joins at 1810, I recreate the team, a little later I realise I’ve spelt Sleepyheads wrong so disband and create for a 3rd time. We soon settle into a pattern, it seems about 8 Cosmic Horrors is as much as I should collect at one time, by the time they are grouped and I am in the turret the ship has taken quite a lot of damage and I have to kill them quickly. I try to stick to just 7 but that is not always easy as the density is quite good. Skills seemed slow to gain but loot seemed quite good. Ark Royal is spotted Skilling, shortly after an explosion was heard, though she seemed intact. I take us back to Rocktropia Space Station where Ntina and I complete repairs. Ntina has done well tonight keeping the damage balanced.

Kills: 6 + 8 + 8 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 50
Balance -Gain of 7 PED
Return – 105%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will still be at Rocktropia.

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1802 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads feat. the Log Lady

I arrive with time to spare, once aboard I position the ship and create the team. Nocturaline is already waiting. Once all are ready we leave, encountering the horrors at 1806.

Wolta’s hour:- Reports a gain of 2.04% in Captain skill and good mob density.
Kills: 14 + 17

Cee’s 21 minutes:- Ntina joins 1908. I am struggling to remain awake, after several recoveries I fall asleep having collected about 10 horrors and the ship blows. Looking at chat it seems only Wolta noticed anything and there were several YouTube links shared. I hand over to Nocturaline after just 21 minutes as I am not sure I can stay awake.
Kills: 0

Nocturaline’s hour:- While leaving Rocktropia Space Station we are followed by a hostile but it warps. Nocturaline received a little shrapnel from the first horror, we do not know how. Nocturaline reports that mob density was OK and a 1.08% gain in Captain skill.
Kills: 14 +20 +7

Return -66%
