I'd like to thank you LuckyDee

Aww, shucks :)

I might start doing streams of runs, if I were to do that where could I post it on here so that you guys could ridicule me while I screw everything up?

On Youtube, spiced up with your commentary interlaced with frustrated screams, howls and groans.

Otherwise, the Post Mortem board will do fine.

Quick question: Does the nuke actually just do a shit ton of damage to everything or does it just kill everything?

6 metric tons of damage.  Unless I remembered it wrongly.

So theoretically with enough damage resistance, something could survive?

No.

Your only means of survival are either being invulnerable or being a unique item.

The nuke does do a finite amount of damage, but the way the damage is dealt and the way resistances work, there's no way in the regular game to attain enough resistance (that would work versus the damage the nuke deals, that is) to survive it short of invulnerability.

Cool.  That is more what I was going for in an answer.  Thanks to both of you though.  Next time any of you have a look, I am curious just how much damage it deals.  Thanks again in advanced.

6000.  For reference, Doomguy starts with 50 HP.

I should amend my initial answer though: The nuke is finite damage to the player only.  It's instant death and destruction to (almost) everything else.

6 metric tons == 6000 (weight unit).

That was what I meant.  But I guess the joke is lost on everyone except myself.  =(

So even if you had 95% nuke resistance, the nuke would still do 300 damage to you.

With 99%, it would do 60.

Hey, what's the best use for a Hellwave Pack? Just found one on a MAD run for the first time and IDK if it'd be useful or if I should ditch it. I'm on HNTR and just past Hell's Armory.

Could I use it instead of melee dmg in UC? How would that even work? Use it as close to the boss as I can get w/o dying? Or couldI use it from outside?

Maybe use it in Limbo/Mortuary for easier wins? IDK, just thoughts.

Effect:   Deals 20d10 fire damage in a radius of 15 around the player.


So you could probably take out all the lost souls by hand, then open the demon door, rush past them, they'll chase you to the boss door, you open it, instakill all the demons and probably severely weaken the AoD.

Lesse...

Health:   250 + 10×difficulty2 = 260, 290, 340, 410, 500
Armor:   10

So, if you're lucky, you'll do 190 against the AoD. At worse, 10, unless I'm really bad at dice notation.

So it seems better for if you're crowded by like, Hell Barons and Revenants and stuff, rather than against the AoD.

That's assuming the Hellwave pack works in the Unholy Cathedral. I haven't tried it.

As for running past the demons, you'd need to be either lucky or have some antigrav boots or something crazy like that - they swarm up against the door.

20d10 is 20 dice with 10 sides - so it would do 20-200 damage, averaging at 110.

Probably best used when you come across a harder vile pack/the mortuary.

It does work in UC (unless I'm remembering it wrong and it will result in some hilarious yasd in the future)

But as Aki said, it's better to save it in case of gettig caught up by a vile pack or something.
