I think it's this, but Kornel should give you the numbers if anything's missing.

Brigadier General - Requires 4 platinum, 1 diamond.

Lieutenant General - Requires 8 platinum, 3 diamond.

General - Requires 10 platinum, 4 diamond.

Marshal - Requires 12 platinum, 5 diamond.

Legend - Requires 7 diamond

Blade - Requires 10 diamond

God hand - Requires 15 diamond

Do you think you can achieve the remaining diamonds?
There are 3 or 4 I got my eye on, however there are others I think are virtually impossible.

Marksmanship without SoG seems pretty farfetched.  Pistols are already underpowered with a full set of traits, and pistols benefit far more from traits than other weapons (i.e. pistols are really really bad, it's only Son of a Gun/Dual Gunner that grants massive bonuses allow it to be viable).

Nightmare with only fists seems kind of tough too.

Edit:  I'm surprised that AoPc without HR is doable.

I'll keep God Hand a secret, wouldn't want to spoil that?

I was thinking about that the other day - If you could do N! with fists, you could do AoMr without SoG (Just pick melee traits and off you goooooo, you even get 2 mods at startup for your trusty armours)

If there is a reward for doing N! with fists without brute, I will prove it by the power of TSearch.

First, though, I've gotta unlock N!

Which ones are impossible?
UAC Diamond - My best time on N! ever was just under 18m, with a Butcher's Cleaver on lvl2. To be able to shave 3 min off that would require epic RNG intervention.
Strongman / Demonic - I still haven't suceeded on a fist run even on HMP, haven't really tried hard either, but can't really see this happening.
Marksman - I don't know how doable this would be with an early unique. Still wouldn't be easy.
Centurial Diamond - Same as UAC, might be possible with an early Cleaver. Still 60 min for 100 levels averages at 36s/lvl. (No Chained Courts and you can't just enter a special level and leave)
Longinus Diamond - Considering the AoD's Hp on Nightmare! you'd need epic RNG intervention. Even 2 Zerk packs near the entrance might be insufficient.

Dervis, any chance we could get an N! special level/General guide?

I think Thomas' tips for Nightmare! are already quite to the point. I would consider making a badges guide.

Yes, but when you have such things as Hell's Arena where you can't just close doors and move on...

The only topics Thomas doesn't cover are the finer aspects of killing monsters on doorways/water/acid and corpse piling to avoid respawns.
