--------------------------------------------------------------

This was my first attempt at a mFa build, and my first HMP win in a standard game (this wasn't on my main computer so I don't have a billion deaths yet).

Nothing terribly interesting happened until early on in Hell, when I ran into a vile/revenant pack in a maze. I should have any trouble with them, because Fireangel lets me ignore damage when I dodge their attacks, right? I learned the hard way that you're not going to dodge as much as you'd like when you don't have any levels of Hellrunner. I manage to take them all out, but I'm reduced to 30% health with one large medpack and no armor. Time to make that 100% health with no medpacks nor armor. Sounds like a good time to check out the Vaults!

And the RNG agrees with me, popping the first unique of the game in there! Even better, I hear revenants and mancubi, which obviously can't hurt me because Fireangel! I pop a hole in the right vault and blow up the revenants as they come out, taking a couple of hits but usually blowing them up from out of sight. It's worth it to get the unique, which turns out to be... not in that room. Damnit. Just standard weapons and a pair of steel boots. Maybe in the right vault? Mancubus missiles are easier to dodge than revenant missiles, so I'll definitely be fine here. Or I would be if that asshole wouldn't shoot at me from out of my LoS. I run away, tail between my legs, with only 8% health left.

Next level is another maze, and the first thing I encounter is a Baron. Not chancing that, I phase to the stairs and find a big pile of demons around an acid barrel. RUN, RUN, then I blow up the barrel and take care of those demons. I've got a little bit of breathing space, so I can take a quick look for extra health, and find a large medpack before any monsters. That gives me enough confidence to keep looking for more, and I get another large medpack and one small. Good enough to keep heading down, even though I still need some armor.

Next level, I start next to a berserk pack and see a red armor by a napalm barrel by the top of the level. I grab the berserk pack before heading for the armor, in case something blows up the barrel, something like a pack of mancubi and archviles. Which is exactly what I find next to it. The mancubi keep hitting each other and I'm berserk, so I don't take too much damage in taking out the pack, but I still don't have any armor. I get my revenge by finding the last one and punching him to death (he managed to attack himself once in there, somehow.)

I rush to the bottom and only find a couple of blue and green armors on the way, but there's an invulnerability globe next to the stairs so the next part isn't any trouble at all. Too bad I didn't find any nukes at all.

Fireangel never really struck me as that nice a trait, especially a master trait. Point-blank rockets are nice and all, but how much mileage do you really get out of it?

Fireangel is personally my favorite trait. And it's mileage varies. It grants a margin of forgiveness for stupid things you would otherwise die for. If you are a master of playing conservatively, you may not get much mileage out of it. But if you like to be reckless, its perfect. Also in my opinion, it's the only viable path for those attempting the Longinus Diamond Badge. Not so much for clearing it, but rather getting to it.

I have so many fond memories of trouncing Vile/Baron packs with Fireangel. I'd usually die from a hidden Sergeant moments after though. Oh well.
