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

 Before him 142 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 123 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? 6 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 5 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

A fun and surprisingly easy run.  Took a total of three tries.  I forgot how easy ITYTD really is compared to the higher difficulties.

I feel that I could have completed this run without the chainsword (combat knife), assuming I could actually friggin zerk against Cybie.  What you don't see is the 2 bulk-modded red armors and phaseshift armor that he broke before I could kill him.  Very scary fight, with a medkit every 3 attacks.


Fist-only run is not uber-difficult just because of your low damage output (it's not that bad while zerking, I've accidentally killed knights after throwing a knife), but because zerk chance with fists is so darn extremely low.  The armor from zerk is the only thing that makes runs like these even possible.

Also, what special did I miss besides Wall? 

I avoided the wall because I wasn't sure if rockets on walls counted against Strongman.  Does it?

I completely agree. I've spent too much time trying to get the demonic diamond... yeah fists really suck at triggering berserk.

It looks like you missed the lava pits.

Not sure, that is a good question though. I wouldn't be surprised if it was only violated upon killing a mob, but I don't know.

Tried this myself, won after a sketchy last few levels and an attempt at the Lava Pits stole my medpacks...

Does Malicious Knives require 100% kill rate?

Malicious Knives do not need 100% kill rate.

Also, please alter the title to conform to conventions: it is likely that when we shift the forums to a new server, we might need to sort the mortems according to the tags in the title.

I computed, therefore I was.

Wait, what? I never attacked a single demon with anything but fists or knives (or any of four chainswords I made for kicks, lol itytd). Did picking up the BFG in Halls of Carnage screw it up?

Depends. When you automatically wielded it, did anything die (possibly to lava) before you swapped back to a chainsword?

Not that I recall, but it could have happened.

It's not like it was a very difficult challenge, on ITYTD. Now, HNTR keeps handing me my ass...
