I'm a newbie. I get my ass kicked by the Arena Master it's not funny. Could someone please tell me some strategies? Also there are so many abreviations, that it's not funny. What is the 666 level UV?
DoomRL isn't supposed to be funny.

Amatsu, are you trying to troll here?  You've been on the forums long enough that you should be used to the abbreviations by now, if not, I suggest reading more mortems and possibly reading the Wiki.

You should also check out the various strategy guides that have been lurking about.  Thomas' guide, Sylph's addendum and dtsund's beginner's guide are all out there.


I created this account to ask stuff regarding BerserkRL. This week I started to get into DoomRL.

Does the Spider Mastermind really do plasma damage despite the bullet sounds? Don't want to put on a plasma shield at the end of a good run and get totally wasted to find out.

Yeah, even the Spider Mastermind's description says something along the lines of "lacking the plasma gun, instead we gave it a big ass superchaingun"

The quote comes directly from the description in Doom. All of the monsters that arn't original, such as the shambler, nightmare demons, etc. All have original descriptions.

But the wiki lists it as plasma damage and i've seen a few mortems where people have worn plasma shields, which leads me to ask.

According to the wiki:



Can someone confirm this to be the case? If Berserker gave 20 actions of berserk effect every 4 melee hits, then I wouldn't be dying so much on AoB. Same for the berserk on damage.

I believe the Wiki is somewhat outdated, I've heard things around the forums hinting that it's actually based on damage done or something. Same with taking hits.


My question: I see an invincibility globe and the stairs to the UC literally 5 steps away.

I have 2 nukes.

If I nuke the UC, will the melee weapon that spawns be destroyed as well?

Edit: Got impatient. Huzzah, new spear. :D

Just tested it - attacking four times in quick succession is guaranteed to make you go berserk. If you wait too long between attacks it seems to reset the counter.

Apologies if Double Posting is bad even with the lack of activity, i'll delete my earlier post if that's the case. Didn't see anything in the rules about it and seeing as we're not as active as some forums @_@...

Recently got the BFG for the first time in 9.9.7 and slapped a power mod on it. However, it seemed really underpowered. It didn't kill Vs, Ms, or Rs, and despite shooting and hitting Cybie like 6 times didn't even come close to half killing him. Now, I realize weapon damage is based on rolls, but has anyone else had any experiences with the BFG like that? It makes me question how good it is and how good the upgrades/unique BFGs are. Thoughts?

Yes it is bad form.  Don't double post, especially if you are going to post an addendum a couple of hours later to an existing reply.

If it is a different topic for a rapid rambling thread like this one, it is fine, but for goodness sake, wait for a reply to the current "quick question" before firing off another one.

You are confusing me so much. :c!

Better to just make a blanket no double posting statement.

As for the stomping...Ooh, senpai, don't stomp on there~

Question should still stand though. Dumb people ask lots of questions.

Edit: It was nearly 24 hours, not a few. S-senpai ;_; OTL

Does anyone have general tips for the Hard chained court on UV/N? It seems to be a huge stumbling block for me unless i've had godly RNG luck up to that point.

Particular trouble points:

-Barons coming in and blowing up my berserk packs/healing
-Arena master camping beyond LOS and just resurrecting things all day. I don't have infinite ammo, especially if i'm doing a shotgun run. (And unless on a challenge i'm usually using shotguns at that point even on other challenges).
-Arena master resurrecting barons. Trying to knock their corpses back into the lava is difficult for me, and he seems to hover within res range of them.
-Arena master doing 500d1 arch-vile attacks

Basically, I suck and i'm not prepared for this, i've been doing lots of runs to try different strategies and nothing's worked for me so far. On M and H it's still a total joke and can grab the 2 packs + chainsaw and just running riot to the arena master, but on UV I get perforated by chaingunners and barons are hard to cornershoot from the awkward position.

There's no strategy guide on the wiki. A search of the forums revealed this this topic, which didn't reveal anything that I didn't already know strategy wise, and running straight at him isn't viable on UV as I said earlier. Even worse on N!.

[urlhttp://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,4966.msg40179.html#msg40179]This topic[/url] gave some more insight into it, but it was again around 0.9.9.2 - and doesn't help with UV and N!.

Does anyone have some general advice they can share? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Aki, just one piece of advice - use that rocket launcher you received in the Arena (unless you're AoB/AoMr/AoSh, of course). Either you can dispose of the baron corspes quite safely, leaving you only with formers, or it allows you to quickly rocketjump all the way to the Master and then charging him with the chainsaw.

Charging straight at the Master without the RL is possible if you pick up the chainsaw and at least one more berserk pack for extra duration - you can then kill the Master while still zerking. But then, expect a quite a fight when cleaning up the rest of the open floor - have some medpacks and some spare armor at hand, if only to recharge running.

Also note that the Master attack does plasma damage - blue armor and berserk resists help a lot here.
