So this was my first game in 0.9.9.2, and I was apparently either really lucky, or ITYTD had some adjustments.  I found both miniguns on the same floor, couldn't for the life of me find the Mortuary stairs (which ruined Conquerer and explorer D:)

But yeah, two miniguns, a shockwave pack, nuclear plasma rifle, onyx armor, some item called lava element (New to me, never got to use it), Arena Master's Staff, and I still managed to finish the game by being ultra-overprepared.  ITYTD really is easy mode. v.v

And, just like when I used to play, I still don't know how not to kill every damn thing I see.  I need to play more AoPc, or I'll never be able to win an AoB. x.x

Any advice on which bonus areas you all now think are worth the cost?  Unless the mortuary got a nerf/rewards got a buff, it's still probably not worth it.  Spider's Lair is doable, and the plasma is always nice.  What about the new Chained Court and Lava Pits?  Have the Vaults been changed?
Oh well, back to AoPc speedruns!

On the plus side, I think you can get some nice rewards, or at least medals, if you kill everything in AoB.

Usually I clear all special areas unless I think I can't - even if I don't get a 'reward', I still get experience.
  • Arena: always, except AoB.  This is a proving ground for my start, I get a lot of deaths here but it is near the start so who cares.  Occasionally I chicken out partway through, especially if I want to avoid the new CC.
  • Chained Court: always if old, almost always if new.  The rewards are good, and the experience from the boss is very nice so early.
  • Wall: On UV I might not be equipped to take it out, and of course many weapon challenges will not.
  • Armory: Always.  I'm not sure if I've been here on AoB, but giftdropping should work.  however, not all characters will be equipped to completely conquer the level.
  • Halls of Carnage:  I guess AoB has the biggest issues here.  Sounds like I need to play AoB again, I don't remember how bad the start of the level is.  Not AoB, always visit.
  • UC:  The choice should be obvious when you get there.
  • City of Skulls:  Always visit, as long as you have a plan for being swarmed at the start or a rocket launcher to go slowly, and decent ammo supplies if not using cells/rockets.
  • Spider's Lair:  I wouldn't go out of my way for this one, if I'm not sure I can handle it.  Shotgun builds are probably the least welcome.
  • The Vaults:  If you can do it, do it - who knows what you'll get!  significantly harder on UV.  They have been changed a little: right side vault has a new point, sort of symmetrical with the left one, and there's a guaranteed entry method into all vaults.
  • Mortuary:  If not going for 100% kills, you can probably raid one side or the other.  If you are, well, better players can clean it up fairly easily, it seems.  I seem to really want ammochain for it.
  • the lava pits:  Any character that has gotten this far should be able to deal with it if you have 2 envirosuits, unless in dire straits and just rushing to the end.  several of the tougher enemies can be knocked into the lava.


Also, the mortuary isn't available on ITYTD (nor was it in 0.991).  You probably missed either the Wall or the Vaults, maybe Hell's Armory.
