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

 Before him 136 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 118 of those were killed.
 3 of those were killed by something unknown.

 And 10 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 5 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 4 killed the bastard and survived.

Fun run.  Done over the course of a vacation day, so a couple saves here and there.

I've been attempting H Conquerer for a while, going for Vet silver and preparing for what an Elite platinum would look like.  Arena was a standard level 3 Combat Shotty cornerfest, CC nearly killed me, surprisingly, and then the Wall was great fun.  I was rocketing Barons and I accidentally blasted two of them into melee range of me, so I panic-phased... directly onto the backpack.  Grabbed the missile launcher and proceeded to clean it out.  Got MVm shortly after and chainsawed my way through Hell Armory, using the launcher to kill a very annoying and uncooperative shambler.   I got a nano pack, and knew exactly what I had to do.  New Halls of Carnage was exciting as ever, with me actually racing the lava in order to find a demon that was hanging out in a corner, trying his hardest to break my YAAM.  Hellgate was a 2-BFG-shot slaughter followed by launchering the Brothers.  I nearly died in UC because I was meleeing skulls with a launcher, then upon realizing what I was doing I switched to my chainsaw and kicked AoD's ass. 

Grabbed the Scythe, went downstairs, destroyed a couple mancubi, and went to the City of Skulls, where I proceeded to FAIL FOREVER.  I farmed skulls for about 5 minutes, giving me a berserk that literally lasted for the rest of the game, and then proceeded to kill Agony, get the skulls, walk out with exactly ONE skull still alive.  I didn't pay attention because BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD and supreme confidence in an impending victory (and because I had decided to make a double chainsaw for funsies).  What did I learn?  ALWAYS CONFIRM BLUE!

Anyway, down to the Spider Lair and guaranteed plasteel boots.  I ended up having to BFG a lot of the spiders, since they hurt a ton even in zerk mode.  (Probably one of the few things that could kill me in Scythe-permazerk mode, honestly.)  I then created Gravity Boots.

These boots broke the game.  Period.  .2sec/move, combined with zerk, meant I was taking 10 to 12 turns every time a former human wanted to move.  Combine that with phase armor (that I, sadly, couldn't find an agi mod for), and I was taking 6 turns for every lost soul turn, and 8 for every vile turn.  Things would only really attack me when I attacked, and Finesse 3 made even that take far less time. 

So yeah, enter vaults, kill 8 mancubi before 1 can even shoot at me, take a grand total of 0 damage with green armor, and then go down to the mortuary to really see how broken fast I was. 

I killed a vile before anything had a chance to move, blew up half the arena to kill another 3 viles with a fire skull, turned another third of the arena into Zerker food, then, after murdering everything, healed from 200% to 200% using the blood skull.  Grabbed a couple mods, learned I could mod tactical crap and phaseshift crap, made the BFG ridiculous (though why bother?  Not like I used it), and continued on.

The Lava Pits confirmed what I believed about gravity boots being totally, completely and utterly broken.  I only took damage from the lava once every 4 steps, and literally ran from monster to monster, killing it to get back to full hp, and didn't even take lava damage.  I decided for funsies to pick up every enviro-suit and take them to Cybie just because I could.  Not like Lava hurt a lot, anyway; 1 damage every 4 moves is nothing.  I looked at viles trying to hit me, and noted that when they flamed, it was four squares behind my movements.  The message that said "You need to taste blood!" would only pop up every 4 movements. 

Then, I dropped a nuke, and tested exactly how fast I could run.  While moving, TWENTY moves was one second.  TWENTY.  I could run past a Baron without him having a chance to shoot at me.  Literally, twenty times his speed.  I had to dance for 400 moves to get the nuke to explode.  Lava element seemed to last forever.  Then I finally went down to see JC.  He took one step forward, and in that time, I crossed the entire arena and attacked him twice.   He had a chance to attack, which pinged me for exactly 1 damage, then I ate him to heal for 3.  I wish I had no-damage killed him; maybe there's a medal for it?



Let me put it somewhat poetically:
As I donned the gravitic plasteel boots and Phaseshift armor, time slowed to a near-halt.  Dust that I kicked up seemed to take minutes to settle.  When I attacked with my Scythe, it was like slicing up statues.  When monsters attacked me, their movements were so slow that it felt like they were tapping me lightly.  Even bullets and plasma, previously instant and painful, became nothing to my berserker might.  Arch-viles would take several seconds to flame me, and I could completely side-step their entire attack with ease.  Mancubi appeared nearly stationary; even lost souls, the fastest of the demonic forces, were as slow as turtles compared to me.  If I faced a large group, as I did in the Mortuary, it would appear as though my foes took turns to shoot at me; one or two out of a group of 20, at the most, would fire.  Viles had no chance to amass large forces;  I could destroy them before they had a chance to react.  The very elements themselves could not catch me;  I ran so fast that lava had no chance to transfer its heat to me, and acid could only take the barest licks at my heels.  I felt as though I could outrun an exploding barrel or a homing rocket.  I ran so fast that I outran my own emotions, my lust for blood only occasionally ringing in my head.  I was a dervish, a hurricane of death and destruction, and no force in Hell could stop me. 

Now imagine if I had gotten levels in Hellrunner and Dodgemaster.  Hoo boy.

I've been thinking that gravity boots has needed a nerf for some time, but still they're heaps of fun. With HR3 I believe you can get down to 0.12 or so, with the right equipment.

If that demon in HoC was in the right spot the lava would kill it for you, if you were lucky.

Now you just need to do it exactly the same, but not miss the one skull. ;)

They take a nano pack, that alone nerfs them enough in my book.
