ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

What planet to choose as a Starting Place ?

As you may know or not, there are a few planets in the Entropia Universe but the main planet is Calypso, and that's where you should start ! In spite of what a few other people may tell you like…

Choose another Planet instead of the boring Calypso

This planet might be boring for people who are playing since years, but for newcomers it's not !

Better loot to be found on the Planet Partners” (understand the other planets)

That's true on the other planets the average loot % you find on mobs is “slightly better“, and you could break even much more than if you were shooting mobs on Calypso… There are just a few things these people haven't told you…

  1. Calypso got the highest population of players
  2. Calypso got the best and longest chain of missions for newbies (newcomers)
  3. Calypso got several Daily missions, by doing these you'll never have to buy a Gun !
  4. Calypso got MUCH More stuff in the auctions than the other planets ! (of course… more people !)
  5. When the MAYHEM event is Live, and it happens 4 times per year for at least 2 weeks each time, everyone goes back to Calypso. Why ? Because the Codex of MAYHEM creatures can only be retrieved from one place in the Entropia Universe… Calypso ! And also people need to buy MANY GUNS for these shooting FEASTS, and where can you find more guns in the auctions ? Again… Calypso !

Trust me… I'd like to tell you that the other planets are better… That they have everything you could dream of, and that you'll forget Calypso in 2 weeks… But as beautiful as they are… they're not as crowded as Calypso, and even feel pretty much Deserted some time…

ROCKTROPIA as an example is a DEAD Planet ! Some people (mainly Miners) still go there because there are places where it's very Profitable to Mine… Apart from that, and despite the brilliant ideas which unfortunately never seen daylight, it's slowly dying…

So do yourself a Favor ? If you're a newcomer… Choose Calypso as the starting place, go to Camp Icarus, Participate to the Gauntlet, and when you have finished it, go to the Camp Icarus Beach to start the CDF Chain of missions which will take you months to complete 🙂

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Calypso Daily Missions to Never buy Guns !

Calypso got a Unique system of Daily token that you can exchange for FREE weapons ! And these weapons are GREAT, because their efficiency is not bad at all, and their durability is EXCEPTIONAL ! That means one of these weapons will follow you through HOURS and HOURS of shooting ^_^

To obtain these Token you have to complete one of many Calypso Daily Missions !

  • Daily Category 1 Mission (average is 1 Token reward)
  • Daily Category 2 Mission (average is 2 Token reward)
  • Daily Category 3 Mission (average is 3 Token reward)
  • Daily Manufacture Mission (average is 2 Token reward)
  • Daily Mining Mission (average is 2 Token reward)
  • Daily Npcs Mission (Feffoid Cave, Argonaut Recovery, etc…)

All of these missions can be taken by going to a “Daily Mission Terminal“, clicking the one you want, and if you find one too hard to complete, just Abandon it and the next day it will be once more available. And of course the goal will be different (so it might stay hard… or be easier ^_^)

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #4Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #5Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #6

The rewards as described above are more in the 1 to 3 token range, but… You have to know that in every Daily Categories, there is a chance to get the “BONUS” Mission ! This Bonus Mission is ALWAYS Very EASY to achieve, and it can come from ANY of the Daily Categories mentioned above ^_^

You see some LOW Level players as an example never take Daily Category 2 or 3 Missions thinking it would be ALWAYS Too HARD for them… But no ! You can have the LUCK to get the “BONUS” from these harder categories, and in that case… Trust me you can complete them !

Besides… These BONUS Missions awards you most of the time with 20 TOKEN ! When you know that you can exchange 20 TOKEN for a nice exceptional GUN, that's like having a Gun for FREE ! Because these BONUS Missions, as an example in the hunting missions, are to Kill 3 kinds of creatures… Which will RUN AWAY from You ! 😀 So whatever your level you'll never die ^_^

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #7Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #8Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #9

So regarding the Daily Missions from the terminal, Best Practice is EVERY Fucking Day you click on it, select all of the Hunting missions, do those you can and Abandon the rest. Then wait for the next day and REPEAT ^_^ This way you'll finally get those BONUS ! I am Level 33 Laser Sniper at the time i write this article, and since i have started these Dailies when i was in the level 15-20 range, I NEVER HAD to buy a GUN to complete the other dailies… (even right now i have 150+ Token sleeping in my inventory waiting for me to exchange these token for a new Gun, as soon as one of my Guns will become unusable)

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Only SWEAT While doing something else !

Sweat Gathering is the ONLY FREE Activity in the game, it's about gathering vibrant sweat from creatures. This Vibrant sweat can be gathered but can't be sold to the Trade Terminal, you can only sell it to other players. So this is the WAY used by FREE to Play Players… But throughout the years the price of Vibrant Sweat drastically lowered… And it's not like you can do something about it, because other players who are PAYING decide if they want to buy your sweat or just tell you to fuck off ^_^ It's like if you're not happy with that… Deposit your own money then ! -_-

Entropia Universe Tips and Tricks Screenshot #10

So at the moment in Early 2022 the average price of sweat is more in the 1.4 Peds for 1000 Vibrant Sweat, and even at that price you'll have a hard time selling it… It's going slowly but surely to 1.35 Peds and even 1.3 Peds. I myself always sell it at 1.3 Peds when i want to get rid of what's in my inventory. But i am a depositor so i don't really care about the price of Vibrant Sweat…

Let's just do some Quick Maths…

  • If you Gather Sweat during 1 hour, you might get 1K so 1000 Vibrant Sweat
  • Let's say you're Lucky and you manage to sell it for 1.5 Peds
  • As you may know (or not) One real $ ($1) equals to 10 Peds
  • So if you sell your hard earned sweat for 1.5 Peds, it's like earning 0.15 cents…
  • You just spent 1 fucking hour to earn 0.15 cents…

So my next question is : Would you accept in Real Life to work for 0.15 cents per hour ?

As an element of comparison a Factory Slav… sorry Worker in Vietnam earns 84 cents per hour… So when you use your Avatar to ONLY Sweat and stay in front of your screen without doing nothing else (and trust me many players are doing that) you're earning more than 5 times LESS Money than a Slav… Again sorry… Worker exploited in Vietnam !

Your earnings won't even cover the electricity cost to power on your computer… -_- So that's why every time i hear a guy whining / blaming the AFK (Away from Keyboard) people sweating, because the creature isn't pulled fast to the turret or this guy is killed… I say FUCK OFF LOOSER ! WE the AFK people HAVE a LIFE, You obviously DON'T ! So pull the damn creature yourself or Die like a man !

Entropia Universe Tips and Tricks Screenshot #16

So when you gather sweat my friend… ALWAYS DO something else at the same time… Something PRODUCTIVE ! Myself I do my Workouts on Youtube 🙂 So i can't chat, can't type on the keyboard but i don't care, at least my avatar is gathering sweat without me having to stay behind.

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

The Advice you should NEVER listen to !

One of the best place to gather Info on Entropia Universe is of course the Calypso Forum.

Then just be careful about this forum because it's also a Very Unhealthy place…

  1. A few people think this Forum should be reserved to the ELITE (Rocket192 the perfect example)
  2. A few people think they're clearly above the Mass (Wizz, RickEngland, etc…)
  3. A few people like to stay Vague and Blurry in their explanations (Evey another perfect example)
  4. A few people are completely CRAZY when they don't take their Pills (Deemer, eSoul, etc…)

Because that's what MONEY will do to you dear reader if you spend too much time in the game like them !

Don't forget this Entropia Universe is all about MONEY and GREED ! People who have decided to invest A LOT of MONEY, and basically thrown their LIFE away in this game have been Forever changed in people who… don't give a fuck about others, and who are VERY TOUCHY !

I have seen a few of these same people on Facebook Groups… They literally think they're the kings of the world and insult each other copiously… Gaming at his worst… And very different from what i used to know more than 20 years back in time, when Internet was still a place where we were helping each other… feeling privileged to be part of this new technological circle. This dream is now long gone…

I am lucky enough to have my own space of expression, otherwise i would be censored on the forum (that's also why i don't speak there…). One day i have a put a little picture about MindArk and their Lack of Communication, and my post got removed in an instant and all the other posts after it…

This NEGATIVE atmosphere have been implemented by MindArk over years of NO COMMUNICATION, and just telling their customers to FUCK OFF if they're not happy… So you know like me that, when the management is bad, it influences all the lower spheres in a negative way… Yes i said Management ? Well because by playing to Entropia Universe, and trying to make money out of it… We're all indirectly MindArk workers !

Grind Codex by Killing 5000 times the same mob over and over

Probably one of the most stupid advice given by the Veterans on the forum… All because of “statistical numbers” that you're going to lose less money this way, and have better chances to get a Global… So let me tell you straight…

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #11Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #12

Killing 5000 times the same amount of PUNY is not boring… it's BORING AS HELL !

That's the quickest way for newcomers to QUIT the game !!! No one on earth but “Crazies” want to GRIND the same mobs for DAYS and WEEKS ! Unless your life is that much Depressing, or so Shitty that killing 5000 times the same pixels looks like heaven to you, You should NEVER DO THAT !

The players who will stay on Entropia Universe are those who HAVE FUN, those who are entertained 🙂 And there is no entertainment or Fun to kill 5000 times the same thing… I would have Quit the game 1st week if i had to follow this stupid advice. Fortunately i didn't follow it and 5 months later i am still there, successful and happy to make my avatar evolve even more ^_^

  • Don't Grind the same mobs for days, Do Missions and also Side Quests
  • Explore the world and kill new mobs, Get out of your Comfort Zone 🙂
  • Try missions where the mobs are harder (like the Argonaut Recovery)
  • Don't spend your whole fucking existence gathering sweat… you're not a slave !

And Deposit ! Otherwise Entropia Universe is clearly not a game for you. You make money with Money !

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Most Entropia Deeds aren't Worth Buying !

Entropia Deeds are the best way to Profit in Entropia Universe, there is no better way like in Real Life than to buy a part of Land, then to profit from every activities which will occur on this Land. You're the land owner and as such will every week win some Peds. Great isn't it ?

The only problem is the Deeds have become FUCKING OVERPRICED over the last decade !

As an example let's take the more sought after Deed, the Calypso Land Deed (CLD) ! Calypso Land Deeds were originally sold for 1000 peds but it was more than a decade ago… And since the price shot up and it seems there's no limit ! Sky the limit (like they say in america) to the bullshit ^_^ Because at the moment the Calypso Land Deeds are sold for more than 3000 peds, and that's utter bullshit my friend !

Let's do some quick maths will you ?

  • Let's say someone (completely and utterly Dumb) buys a CLD for 3040 Peds
  • As from the official thread right here, the average weekly profit is 5 Peds (i am generous)
  • There are 52 weeks in a year, so you'll win roughly 260 Peds / year
  • 3040 / 260 = 11.7 so a little more than 11 years and 6 months to reimburse your CLD.

Then you have 2 kinds of people…

  1. The people who are going to play Entropia Universe for ALL their life…
    For them they might profit if (i don't wish them any harm) everything goes right for them in RL
  2. The people who think they're going to Play EU only with the CLD Profit earned each week…

These 2nd kind of people are really funny… And the price of CLD is also raising since a long time because of these motherfuckers… Let me explain :

  • These poor fuckers buy just 1 CLD thinking they will be able to play for FREE every week
  • So they invest $300 to buy it and then they receive every week an average of 5 Peds

What do you do with 5 Peds ? Well assuming you already have a gun, you're going to Hunt PUNY Mobs for 15 to 20 minutes every week. That means the lowest possible mobs in the game, that means NO FUN, No entertainment at all ! Because these mobs loots are SHIT… When i say 20 minutes i am VERY Generous, and it's like you're going to get GREAT Loots to continue the hunt ! (but don't dream won't happen 😀 )

So do you know then what happens with these poor motherfuckers ?

They're really disappointed… and they go back to the auctions to resell their damn CLD ! But they don't want to sell it to a lower price than the price they originally paid, they don't want their 1 or 2 weekly profits to be gone in the reselling… NO ! These motherfuckers are going to raise the price ! So they'll put it at 3045 Peds… And later another poor motherfucker wanting to be rich will buy it, and the cycle will repeat over and over again ! That's why we're already at 3080 Peds for a fucking CLD… (And also because there are Assholes Veterans players on the forum encouraging this…)

There was one guy who was all happy to have bought 1 CLD these last months, and then he began a little hunting log on the forum saying he would hunt every week with 5 peds 😀 Guess what ? He wrote less than 10 posts in the forum and we never heard from him since lol… He resold his CLD and Quit ! Obviously… That's why i was speaking above of “Not listening to all the shit spread by Veterans on the forum“.

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Ships like Sleipnir or Quad are Important !

Obviously when evolving in a HUGE world like Calypso planet, it's better to have your own Transport ! ^_^

Running is nice but it has its limits… There are missions for newcomers where you're asked to travel from point A to point B, and trust me all the mobs on the way are not lower than you… Some are WAY stronger and can one shot you if you come too close.

So you might think that you'll be careful and so on… But creatures have also different level of “Aggro”, that means they're more or less Aggressive… And some creatures have some Strong Aggro ! Meaning even if they're far on your radar (symbolized by a little red dot) they'll run at you from far away, then eventually catch you and kill you and you'll respawn at the nearest revival terminal, which will not always be the best spot… like surrounded with MANY creatures ! And you'll be… Stuck -_- Don't worry there is a channel where people can come to save you…

But sometimes there is no one and so you can have to wait for a long time…

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #17Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #18Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #19

That's why Buying your very own Sleipnir (cheaper choice) or Quad-Wing Interceptor (more expensive but also twice as fast) will be a Time and Life Saver ! It will be in your inventory, and when you need to use it, just place it on the ground and then Fly and go to your destination.

Also for your information, a Quad is a little more touchy than a Sleipnir when placing it on the ground… Let's say it needs more “stable” ground, so whenever you want to place it, check your little mouse pointer it will be either a Red Cross or a Green Validation. Just move around your cursor on the nearest ground and eventually you'll find a Green spot to place your Ship 🙂

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Fighting Smart is better for your Wallet !

Fighting Smart means the right weapon for the right mob, or the right weapon at the right moment 🙂

There's no use to equip a Gun doing 60 damage if the mobs you're killing have only 30 Hit points, because no matter how low the hit points of this creature, you'll still consume the ammo needed to do 60 damage ! And that means twice as much ammo as if you were using a 30 damage Gun !

So if you're like me a Daily Mission Junkie (read above the section about daily missions), I encourage you to have several guns on you ! Maybe not at the beginning of course… But the more you'll advance into the game the more these will be needed !

I have myself 3 guns at all times i really use : (Dps means Damage per second)

  • A low 10 Dps gun (that's a 20 Daily Token CDF weapon)
  • A low medium 35.3 Dps gun (that's a 40 Daily Token CDF weapon)
  • A medium 53.5 Dps gun (that's a 60 Daily Token CDF weapon)

Obviously with my level i don't have higher guns than that 😉 (not yet ! because i will !!)

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #20Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #21Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #22

As you can see on the screenshot above, for the Feffoids i am using my highest gun because they have some high regeneration… So if i had to use a lower gun, the battle would never finish and i would lose more ammo than anything. On the contrary on the Equus, i began with my highest gun then as the creature's health was going low i switched to my low medium gun to finish it.

There's always a different situation for different mobs, it's up to you to apply the right dosage.

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Winning Auctions against other Players !

As you know or not, there is an Auction system in Entropia Universe. Players can bid on items sold by other players which can last for a maximum of 7 days. And sometimes on popular items there can be several players fighting to get them 😉

As an example i recently have acquired a Beautiful Blue Wazir Pleat ! It's the competitor of the master coat which is very popular by old school players, and still… not worth the high price for its low design. On the contrary the Wazir Pleat shines and sparkles ! Basically you really stand out of the crowd !

So when the auction was near its end… One guy began to fight for it, and the funny thing was… He made a bid 2 minutes before the end thinking i would not have the time to bid higher ^_^ First i was ready for that, as i was in front of my screen refreshing the auction every 10 seconds, and Second… In Entropia Universe when you bid higher than the other player in the last 5 minutes, it Resets the counter to “5 Minutes” 😀

So whenever you Bid higher… At 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 minute before the end of the auction… The counter will be put back to 5 minutes for everyone ^_^ That means you can't “Ninja Bid like it was possible in other games, auction platforms on the web or real life systems… No ! On EU, everyone will get the chance to outbid their opponents with 5 more minutes and take their time, to think about if it's worth it or not.

So the guy had to wait for 5 more minutes, and then i made a bid at the last minute to outbid him ^_^ Basically by doing that we were both forced to stay on the auction screen, waiting 5 more minutes every time there would be a higher bidder… So yeah if both bidders are stubborn it can last for a LONG time -_-

Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #23Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #24Entropia Universe Tips and tricks Screenshot #25

And in Entropia Universe, other players like to Bid with just 1 Ped higher… I wasn't ready to stay 2 hours in front of my screen so i went to Bid 10 more Peds every time ! The guy even searched for my name in the global roster and sent me a message as you can see on the middle screenshot above ^_^

Telling me that if i was going to his position (or really just a position he randomly took from the map) and giving him 5 peds, he would let the auction go to me lol 😀 That's the kind of trick which could work on someone New to Internet, a little Naive maybe… But i am on Internet since 1995 so i have seen all kind of shit going on, so i didn't even care to answer the guy… I continued the fight in silence !

And eventually as you can see on the same screenshot, he wrote me that he was giving up. It's all a matter of not falling into your opponent trap and showing that you have bigger balls. By bidding way higher than this person, is also a way to show your opponent that you're not afraid to Bid Higher, as opposed to a 1 ped Bidder who seems to be very cautious about its Ped budget.

ENTROPIA UNIVERSE TIPS AND TRICKS

Don't Believe in Fake Success Stories !

Internet is full of Fake Stories of Successful people… and why ? Because it helps to sell ! It can be used to sell tangible things like products, pills, things you can touch 🙂 And it can also be used to sell intangible things like Ideas, and this one works very well on Internet since years !

Entropia Universe is not devoid of them, but the most perfect example will be this story you can read below

How i Turned Entropia into a Full Time Job

In this thread you can even read answers from Naive people like :

Divinity : Very inspirational story and thanks for sharing.
Katie Chalmers : Success stories are what drives interest in our lovely little game
Jambon : Pretty awesome post

One guy was smarter than the rest though as Mihaimnb answered : Kind of sketchy story

Because this story is not awesome and even less Inspirational at all ! It's not a success story and if you drive people in with that, they'll feel deceived and will leave as soon as the treachery will be discovered !

These 2 sentences are important :

  1. I don't know if I would've kept going on with my Entropia journey if I didn't meet Eve at the time I did.
  2. I remember the first week I started mining hardcore I made around 4000ped profit, and I knew this was it for me. The rest was history.

There are 4 long sentences on the Player Eve… Eve is the local Uber Asshole who likes to tell people

you don't listen, you don't understand” as soon as you don't agree with him.

I find it very hard to believe that this guy whose reputation is not good at all, apart from the fact he is respected by some because he is a UBER, would have helped our little Fake successful guy…

Also This Zach OnlyGodPlays Lusk has hidden his profile on EntropiaLife… Even Eve doesn't hide his profile ? What do you have to hide Zach ? Maybe the fact that your little fake story is all bullshit and you never profited more than 1 week ? 😉

Because EVERYONE can hit a HOF or have a Good Week of Nice returns on investment ^_^ I know i did ! So 4000 peds profit can be made by virtually anyone… You just need Luck ! We can see MANY of these HOFs in the game every fucking day ! It doesn't mean that these people are going to become Profitable on the long run, and moreover it doesn't mean luck will forever stay on your side -_-

So The rest was history ? I say the rest is all Bullshit ! This story was made between Eve and Zach to Re-brand Eve bad reputation, and at the same time to make people believe you just need to invest $5000 and do it Eve's way… Because obviously all the others who are not making it are just…

not listening, not understanding” (Eve)

And you know the funniest thing in all of that ? Zach came back on January 2022 😀 What happened poor little Zach ? Lost a job you recently found ? Lost a woman you thought would have dragged you out of EU ? ^_^ Ahah… Sorry but i just can't be a nice guy towards Fake People.
