 Is he immortal? 2 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

Managed to get my first GK Diamond here, also cleared The Wall for extra experience. Was going for a YAAM minus one run (minus AoD), and will keep in mind that AoD should be possible for the future. However Mortuary nearly killed me, either I used the wrong shotgun (or didn't find the right one), or the wrong strategy, or it's just plain difficult for shotgun-users there.

Wait, do you mean that you think AoD is possible on UV AoSh, or just in general? Because I would never try to do it in a situation where I didn't have at least a combat knife (and, by extension, a chainsword). I'm kinda surprised you went through the trouble of killing the Lost Souls with a 50% to-hit fist. I am also impressed with the clearing of The Wall, musta gotten lucky with some phases (I just hope you picked up Fireangel in time to avoid the big damage).

Mortuary is always hard if you don't have the damage to deal with the constantly-encroaching army. Most games use a BFG or a missile launcher (or Ammochain plasma and a long time) but shotty builds should probably use MAD so that the damage outside of vision actually hurt more than one. FDS is a decent substitute, but I would definitely combine it with DM/MFa's ability to avoid damage to get closer. Either way it's gonna be a pain, but at least it's not as bad as pistol Mort.

You seem to have picked up the game rather quickly, I hope to see plenty more! (And I've seen the post in the Nightmare! forum, well done.)

I was thinking AoD in general is very killable now, but you're right, it's not a viable strategy for fists only runs. (I'm not saying it's impossible, but the chances are around 1 in 1000 that it's possible, in this version), still if I ever end up on AoSh or AoMr or during a strongman/demonic run and I have extreme luck with the RNG maybe I'll attempt it.

The Wall was indeed phase devices (homing to get back).
I tried a modded assault shotgun at first in the Mortuary (I brought mods in with me in preparation and I headed straight for it first thing), I expected it to work and kill at far distance, but it didn't, and I was quickly running out of shells, so I did indeed switch to FDS and had to close range to hit the Arch-Viles who didn't want to be nice and stand in front, which was extremely dangerous (MFa helped, and I had to sit next to some Mancubi & Arachni), it's definitely not something I advise and it was very costly in the supplies so I consider it a bad move, until I have the appropriate weapons or figure out a better strategy for dealing with Mortuary using shotguns. Once I reached the centre I was at least able to pick up some additional shells from dead sergeants.

I can't take credit from picking up the game quickly, as I've played UV/N! before in a previous version (pre 0.9.8.5) a long time ago, and this version gives more options and improved strategies.

Something seems wrong with this mortem, you say that you cleared the wall? Did you forget to get the reward?

I wanted it (main reason for attempting), but it was destroyed by Hell Barons firing from right to left.
