After no luck since the surprise with the shell, tonight I picked up a Silver Babaa Coin (JN shows price fluctuations on it, but current TP price is 2 mil). Went straight into my album as I didn't have it. Also regular RS'd an 900k coin that I didn't have so went into my album.

I've missed at least 5 other boon items, though, (seen and failed to click fast enough/haggle) including on that I stared at for a full 5 seconds before realizing it was a boon item. :roll: (It was the Lucky Coin Stamp, which is gold colored, like the boon markings, and it was in between several other yellow/gold colored stamps so maybe that was why?)

Boon has definitely been worthwhile. :) Time-consuming, perhaps, but profitable.

ETA: Caught a Mipsy Stamp (740k-990k, depending on when you sell apparently) and a Maraquan Draik Maractite Coin (~875k), both went straight into my album. Missed another 2 boon items today, and finally got actually banned around when I needed to stop anyway.

So....yeah. Definitely not complaining about this boon aside from the time, luck, and little bit of skill it requires. I don't think I'll restock on a regular basis (it's boring as all get out - I've been only really doing it when we're watching a movie), but on any occasion that I might get the boon? Maybe. I really only super tried to restock some of yesterday and today, or I might've done better, but eh...I was finally getting better from being sick and we had other things to do. I don't feel like I missed out.

Total boon items seen: 12
Total boon items bought: 4
Net profit worth: over 6 mil (only actually 1.4 mil in pure nps, which was used for more album items just for kicks)

Amazing boon week for Pickles! I thought I was doing well by selling a some of stocks at 55 (or so) for a whopping 200k profit.

This week: Thieves Guild, Awakened & Seekers

Frankly, I could use an "easy boon" week. While I usually go for Thieves, I would be happy to have the "easy" bank boon. That leaves only Seekers as the best choice, I suppose. They have the bank boon, and awakened is just too random (and those girls are creepy).

Seekers, anyone?

I don't have a preference anymore since I already have the bank and stock boons from Granny, and I don't have much time for restocking or spinning wheels (TNT, change them to HTML already!). Since I'm about to start my 15-hour work day, I'm joining Seekers now in deference to Blue's preference!

I'll jump on the bandwagon. I'm not sure how next week will go, so I might do wheels, but we'll see.

ETA: Almost forgot to battle. Last few days have been weird. But! Battling in.

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Mon Feb 03, 2020 1:34 pm

Just got 17 battles in myself. It's late, so hopefully that's enough!

Edit: Seekers won! I went with the wheel boon. Thus far, I'm 500 NP net positive thanks to an item. I probably won't keep careful track, but it was easy to calculate today.

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Mon Feb 03, 2020 4:00 pm

Also went with the wheel boon. Not sure how much time I'll have to spin, but it'll be worth it to try at least!

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

Just got another ~3200 net, for 3700 net total thus far. Not really keeping good track (missed what I won from the first WoE spin just now, so didn't count that either way...).

Edit: third set of spins, 1850 net, so 4050 total (ish).
Day 1, Spin 4: 1500 net/5550 total
Spin 5: +4676 (thanks to 1200NP R90 item + 4k from WoMed); 10,226 net total
Day 2, spin 1: +1749; 11,975 NP net total
Day 2, spin 2: -624; 11,351 NP net total (I was overdue for a negative set)
2.3: +900; 12,251 net total (Med only)
2.4: +4645; 16,896 net total (bri from Mon, 2.5k from WoE) - not bad for the day after being gone from 7:15am-8:50pm, with only a short lunch break! Tomorrow is even longer, but if I bring my laptop, I'll be able to sneak in spins at work...
2.5: +3697; 20,593 net total
2.6 WoMed only because I suck at going to bed: +600; 21,193 net total
3.1: +813; 22,006 net total (WoK of all things was what kept me from having -1k+!)
3.2: +1800; 23,800 net total
3.3: +1300; 25,100 net total (WoMed only; 1st WoMon is still spinning...)
3.4: +1950 (WoMon = bri, the rest = 0); 27,050 net total
3.5: +4750; 31,100 net total (forgot to check for items last time, so rest wasn't 0...)
3.6: +1900; 33,000 net total
4.1: +2750; 35,750 net total
4.2: +800; 36,550 net total
4.3: +5400; 41,950 net total (5k off WoE)
4.4: +400; 42,350 net total
4.5: -1100; 41,250 net total
4.6: 100; 41,350 net total
4.7: -300; 41,050 net total
5.1: 1300; 42,350 net total
5.2: +450; 42,800 net total (was away from home with no access to any electronics today, so I won't get many spins in)
5.3: +400; 43,200 net total
6.1: +21,300; 64,500 net total (hit the 20k on WoE, whee! makes up for the lack of spins yesterday)
6.2: +300; 64,800 net total
6.3: +300; 65,100 net total
6.4: -800; 64,300 net total
6.5: +300; 64,600 net total
6.6: -500; 64,100 net total (maybe I should have stopped at 1 spin today?)
6.7: 900; 65,000 net total
6.8: +100; 65,100 net total
6.9: 3800; 68,900 net total
7.1: +2550; 71,450 net total
7.2: +1800; 73,250 net total
7.3: -500; 72,750 net total
7.4: 1500; 74,250 net total
7.5: 2700; 76,950 net total

*Note: Sometimes I added a spin to a prior one, especially if it was just a couple of quick Mediocrity spins or close to zero or a round number, and I didn't record how many wheels (or which) each spin was, so you can't calculate average per spin in any meaningful way

Woot. Yay Bandwagon. I went with the bank boon. I *almost* clicked on the collect interest button before realizing I had not checked the boon.

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

And that's a wrap. ~77k NP this week from the wheels, which is particularly impressive considering there were 3 days when I was away from home the vast majority of the time (and I had ~8-10 hours on most other days when I was AFK as well.

(WoMed is every 40 minutes, and it's the most lucrative wheel, unless you hit the 20k jackpot on WoE once, as I did this weekend... Since it only takes a few seconds to spin all the wheels (refresh and start spinning again, without waiting for it to stop), as long as you can access a computer with Flash, it's not too hard to get at least 4-5 spins in a day. Once the site converts to HTML, we'll be able to spin on our phones, which will be crazy.

I also didn't count all the extra sticky snowballs I managed to snap up after spinning the wheels each time; they're probably worth as much as those spins, honestly...)

I didn't track what I netted, but i know I was constantly depositing NPs over 2k (I usually keep 2k out for wheels in general), and I buy a Sticky and visit the healing springs after every time I do WoMed. I've been spinning the wheels on a semi-regular basis lately, so double-spins wasn't hard to add to my schedule - but I was pretty busy this past week trying to catch up on things so I didn't get as many spins as I could've. Ah well, it was still fun.

Next battle: Sway, Order, or Brutes

Re: Battleground of the Obelisk [Split 8]

I need to get more wins against Order and Sway to even up my battle scores.

Panicked picked (forgot last week, almost forgot this week) and chose Brutes!

Go Brutes? Sure. Why not?

Don't forget that battling ends in less than 10 hours!

Thanks Siniri! I am well over my usual weekly battles :)

Traveling has its benefits...
