Definitely, and I know he payed a hefty price for it as I avoided that exact symb because I didn't have the credits. Just to make twinking into the Excalibur less painful though, he'll probably want a ql 200 implant; however, not sure what the current 2he stat is so he might not even need that. That's JUST to get the sword on though, or get into a higher KO sword if a CoE isn't available.

Thanks for the tips! Yeah, my 2HE selfed is now 1051, so with the bladestaff thingy and 131 wrangle I could probably equip the 240 Excalibur. Have a +30 staff in bank, not high enough brawl atm to use the +50 one. Have a chest and some other symbs waiting to be equipped, the chest is a QL210 so will need some levels... The 180 brain is also in the bank, needing a bit more treatment, must get better library and buff eye... Let's see if I can find the sword or something else. Will try to rush to 150 someday soon I hope. Had a bad teaming experience in IS yesterday, thought it was behind me, as TOTW levels are long gone, but apparently not.

But still 145 keeper LFT! :)

...Well, now 149, going to squeeze some time in today. Made some calculations for my QL 216 type 112 in the bank, will be able to equip it at 161 at the latest, if I calculations are somewhat correct. So it's a rush to that level now! Also still waiting to put my new brain in and getting more good stuff... An orgmate might have an Ancient Container I can borrow, and have planted a speed tower for 100 more melee init. So the race is on!

A major update! :)

Got to 160 lately, rockpiles and more rockpiles... and some missions to add to the tokencount. Also got me a new chestpiece, OFAB one. Got lucky with LE missions so that I got my upgrades for it, so it buffs my weaponskill quite nicely. with the help of that and some buffs, I was finally able to equip my shiny new kyr sword. With that I no longer need to be at almost full agg to be able to do damage to mobs. Noticed first hand the effect, when I went down to 29% agg, I started to evade some hits. Feels nice and makes the missions much faster to do. Also got brawl and fast attack back!

Also upgraded some symbs, now can self all my nanos ATM, so no need to beg for CI every time I go out buffing. Been doing some BS too, even was a freshman a while, lost it soon enough though. Also breedcapped all abilities, and IP seems to be a bit more available atm. Will see how the leveling up will go on from now on. Be seeing you around, always up for some fun stuff, when I'm on! 160 keeper LFT!

k, another update... Currently level 173, still more or less the same equipment, only got a range meter on and moved the earring to HUD2 and changed my conventional memory chips to Yutto's ones, so a bit over 600NCU now selfed. Was a bit expensive, but it's only credits after all, and what else to use them on than to get my char better.

Playwise I have now gotten as far as Penumbra in SL, even got my garden key, so traveling is not really a problem outside the fact that the mobs like to gank me on sight! :) Been doing some missions there too, mainly for exp and research, only one level 6 goal left to fill now. AI levels are lagging badly, only 11 ATM.

From character development view there is not much to do until level 190 and new title level. I have breedcapped all my abilities and titlecapped all weaponskills except dimach. Also all evades, runspeed, nanoresist, melee init, complit, nanoskills, treatment and first aid are maxed, as well as bodydev and nanopool. Will need to update my AUNO profile soon enough...

For the time being my playtime is limited, but should you catch me online, feel free to invite to teams and such, I can provide some auras and DD, tanking is not that good but doable with enough heals and such, I have no enfo type hitpoints, and no aggro management tools except damage! :)

Good to see an update! Sounds like you're making some good progress. Don't worry too much about your AI levels right now unless you really need an AI perk somewhere. IMHO there are two level ranges which are prime for getting AXP: 150-160 for AI raids and pulling LE missions for 210-220s, and of course 210-220s for AI raids and having LE Missions pulled for them by 160s :-)

You're probably going to be at a semi-rough time with your keeper until you hit the SL levels and your perks start to shine.

A quick little update... Got to 180 yesterday, got my Pain Lance perk special and finished one level 7 research topic. Armor is getting old, but nothing better is in sight atm, as I didn't do enough BS to get a full set of OFAB, and T2 will be impossible to obtain without an escort or major credit usage, although the price of those glyphs supposedly has dropped... Could get one glyph doing the Ado quest line though. :) But slowly working my way up!

Yeah, I'm kinda back again! Just yesterday got finally around to join Omninet, and that way I heard about Tara spawn, and got this bright idea to join in on the raid! Only died once during the raid, and we won! Somehow didn't get many hits in on anyone, depressing to see all misses on combat spam. But was still fun, a lot was happening all around. Made me wanna level more, to be able to really contribute more to the raid. Might even try out some APFs later on! :) Also met a nice soldier whilst doing the Ado quest further, got the embryo part done!

Another milestone achieved, just yesterday dinged 190, TL6 and skills opened up again. Equipmentwise no real changes, everything is so expensive for my cred balance, was thinking about T2, but 30M for a glyph is a bit steep for me atm. Only real change is that got the Ado brain done and inserted. Also pants are T2 now, as the questline yielded me parts for one glyph set.

Got saved in Inferno, even been doing some mishes there with orgmates, although I don't feel that I realy can contribute much to those, as I'm so gimpy. In Pen I think I can be a somewhat reasonable asset to team, but even running around Inferno is easily quite lethal to me. Also yesterday made my first visit to APF, was nice while someone else had aggro! :) Was quite a messy visit though, as the bot timer was off, and nobody got the mission, hence resulting in some 'interesting' tactics. But I think I'll pay another visit soon. Also doing the last bit of tokengrinding, need to gather those 2500 tokens for the ultimate board. So if anyone here is running some mishes, I could use some company, also can help in rolling things in my level range, as those mishes also count to tokens, as long as I kill my way around them! :lol: But be seeing you around, take care!

Gratz on TL6! I'd work on your kit a bit if you can. You don't have to buy everything; farming patterns ftw! If you collect patterns and spawn a pocket boss you can get your own symbs. I've actually had rather good luck getting the symbs I need from them. The best part is that you can turn around and sell the symbs that you don't need for some good cash. Filling out the rest of your setup with symbs (except for the wrists) and upgrading a few of the ones you have will give you a very noticeable boost. I'm not saying twink out here, but just get on a "leveling kit" :-P

Your sword doesn't look that out of date, but I bet you could squeeze into a bit higher one. Your armor needs to be upgraded. You don't have to buy the T2/T3 glyphs; I actually farmed them (well, except for a couple because I got bored). The only problem I see today is that everyone wants Ofab instead of Tier, so you might have trouble finding a good T2 farming team. Maybe get an Alappa pad on? I'd get an MotR from IS also. There are a few alternatives to Tier until you go Ofab/AI. You can get on some Sworn Night stuff or go Bellums. Both are sets are quite good with Bellum naturally being the beefier option. The Bellums Coat is quite expensive, but I believe all other pieces (except perhaps for the helm) aren't that badly priced. Again, you could get a team and farm the parts if you wanted to in order to save some cash. Lower ql Arul bracers have come down in price quite a bit with the release of the 5 gem ones, so look into grabbing a pair if you can.

Since you are TL6 now, you should have some ways of making some cash to buy some upgrades. Along with selling symbs and gear, I still make a good bit of credits by selling things I pick up in RK missions. One RK mission usually nets me 10m unless something really good drops. That includes all the implants that I sell (ql 200 implants usually sell the day after I put them in my shop), any belts or NCU, nanos, and of course shop food. That's at ql 250 though.

Just throwing out some ideas ;-)

Thanks for the pointers. Yes, am painfully aware of the armor situation, must work on that! :) Actually started selling some stuff I have accumulated along the way, some QL200 imps I had are now sold, and some belts too. Too bad I'm not a very good marketer, but did put some stuff to my shop, let's see how it goes. Currently running easy mishes by the dozen, need to gather them tokens before I hit 200, which is not too many Pen/Inf mishes from now.

Weaponswise I have a QL248 - to be 250 once I get it typed, sword waiting, will still be some time until I can get it on, currently can just about re-equip my 216 type 112 with a 131 wrangle. Armor is on the works too, will have to somehow get some glyphs together or get some more VPs for better chest... Pred circlet is actually nice, as headgear needs to be hotswappable with them Pen glasses, and it lets my hair flow in the wind! :) AC needs to be upgraded, true, will see about that. Also the waist if changed to a symb would be very nice. Well, slowly getting there, be seeing you all around the vast Rubi-Ka!

You can't self Sworn Knight's yet? Helm is nice and it makes for a decent second shoulderpad if you don't want a second omni pad.

Ahh, thanks, have forgotten about that set...or actually the thought has never crossed my mind. Sure could self that one quite easily... :) Might have a look at that soon.

Also did finally get around to update a bit of my stuff, as can be seen in the signature. The sleeve was the only part that really needed some work squeezing into, nothing too major, only behe and some nova dillon, didn't want to put pillows on, as then I should have hunted for a wrangle to put my sword back on... Well, the tokengrind is still on... CYA around!
