Hunting Kerberos S2 Merry Mayhem 2012 Solo with EWE LC-120 Purpose (L)

This year MindArk changed how Merry Mayhem works. Until now everyone was hunting at the open world and it was possible to interact with other participants now you enter instances where you hunt alone if you enter solo instance or you are only with your team if you enter team instance. Some people didn't like the change, but most are happy that now everyone has a chance to participate solo, not like in the past years where you needed team and a lot of work to form it and coordinate it.

To start the mission you must go to Port Atlantis and talk to Carl Tucker (61421; 75105). He will give you 30 keys for solo instances and 30 keys for team instances. Each key give you 1 hour to hunt in that instance. So you can do 30 hours hunting solo and 30 hours hunting in team. The event started on 14 of December 2012 and will end 30 of January 2013 which gives plenty of time to do it.

There are 4 categories for the event. In what category you are depends on your highest hunting profession:
Category 1: Highest Professional Standing 0-24
Category 2: Highest Professional standing 25-49
Category 3: Highest Professional standing 50-69
Category 4: Highest Professional Standing 70 or higher.

I am Laser Sniper (Hit): 33 and Ranged Laser (Dmg): 31 so I am in category 2. Looks like I don't have much chance to compete with players level 45-49, but I decide to do it for the fin. The price of weapons looks pretty high at the moment, but I buy EWE LC-120 Purpose (L). The MU was like 137% yesterday but 125% today.

I get in the instance, but few L21 Merry Mayhem Araneatrox (S,2) spawn around me and I die fast. I quickly decide that they are too strong for me and I start hunting the weaker L11 Merry Mayhem Kerberos (S,2). And I am not even thinking of getting close to the boss mob L38 Yulebot (S,2). I just take quick picture with him. In the end I was lucky enough to get a global and finish the first run on profit. For that run I made just 141 points for 141 killed Kerberos.
