[H|100%|YAAM] Cleared HMP - Mortuary included!
« on: February 04, 2011, 15:36 »

I've been struggling with HMP for a while now. My many initial attempts were for close-combat character - fireangel and blademaster. Some of those went quite far, but never far enough. At some point I decided that I'm fed up and started another character with intent to get Cateye. The first one of those, with Dodgemaster on top of Cateye got killed by Arachnotrons on level 24 due to my sheer stupidity - I decided to keep fighting instead of going downstairs.

My second character went quite well, despite never finding anything exotic or unique in line of my traits (assault shotgun?!)  I was stocked on large med-packs (by the way - ditch most of that as well as the armor as soon as you get Cateye - you don't get hit that often after that and those slots have to be used for ammo).  When I found the Mortuary, I had Cateye, Sob(3) and Hel(1) as well as three (!) homing phase devices. The latter decided it for me.

My plan for the Mortuary was this: teleport to the stairs immediately, slowly work my way towards the center, teleport back to the stairs if there is no hope of winning this fight, grab everything next to the stairs and descend. This would leave me with an extra homing device in case I needed to bypass a tough cave on my way down.

I never activated that second homing device!  I killed easier enemies from afar, lured stronger ones (Barons and Arachnotrons) towards the edge to kill them there and pick up any dropped ammo while away from the Viles, and killed the Viles with missile launcher (knockback rules!). It was almost too easy...

Anyway, for the mortem:

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 154 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 134 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 16 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 3 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 killed the bastard and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

Nice Mortuary clearing!  Knockback is a really good friend in many circumstances.  I think that it became easier to plan your moves once you have Cateye going -- that additional 2 more tiles of visibility gives you just enough time to knockback anything that comes close.  Also, 2xInt probably helped you plan your moves better too.

It's been a while... I think I should try this build and see if I can clear the Mortuary too!  Good win there!
