[N!|Ao100|92%|YAVP] Centurial Diamond as Scavenger!
« on: September 13, 2011, 12:24 »

GH: I'm not sure why you used spoiler tags, given that this the one forum where posting mortems is a necessary part of any OP. I've removed them for now: if you wanted to keep your text spoiler'd, feel free to edit them back in, but please keep the mortem out of the tags.

Alright, this one could of been a lot smoother had I known a few things but I learned a lot. Obviously we all dream of the sick armor and weapons we can create on Ao100 with the Scavenger trait and I got extremely lucky while making some mediocre decisions that cost me the perfect run.

Some highlights:
- Nano pack on level 1 (Caco Vault bleh...). This happened on my eighth try. Wow. Plasma rifle FTW!
- Trigun->Scavenge->Nano pack. 15 levels later->nanoskin gothic armor.
- Cereberus armor + berserk = invincible, next run will take advantage of this.
- Cereberus Gothic Armor is probably the best.
- Three sets of Gothic, of which I grabbed 2.
- Scavenging my original plasma rifle with A1T1N1B2 gave me a technical mod :'(
- Nanoskin Gothic (P) [12/12] + Gothic Set Bonus [+4] + TaN 3 = 19 Armor };)
- Lack of Berserk! trait made this much, much longer than normal.

What I would've done different?
- More careful modding of that Nano plasma rifle. You're guaranteed all the basic and exotic mods you'll ever need in Ao100, just not when you need them when you're a MSc. Personally I'd have gone N1S1B3 on that baby if I'd thought about it before hand. Nanomanufacture optional, not worth waiting for...
- I would not have killed my Nano plasma rifle by Scavenging it. Damn.
- SoB sooner. Especially with regenerating plasma ammo, that stuff goes pretty quick so make it count.
- I found that Cerberus armor to be better than my nanoskin gothic until I found my next power mod. I should've taken better care of it and used it until then.
- Cerberus boots didn't occur to me until way late in the game, never found enough power mods. Definitely worth it.
- high power Railgun (P) instead of (T) I think. I almost disassembled it in hopes of gravity boots but since I was relying on my nuclear plasma rifle after disassembling my Nano rifle it seemed far too risky. And it was really, really useful later.

That's it! Been waiting for Centurial Diamond for a long time now. . . Thank you Classes!

Wow, okay...wasn't really expecting THIS so soon, either. I guess Scavenger makes it easier to build yourself up to be ridiculously powerful, but Nano Pack on dlvl1 certainly doesn't make things any harder!

I would certainly wait for infinite ammo, especially given that you could THEN place the sniper mod on it for 100% infinite ammo, AKA the coolest weapon ever. Mother-in-law is always a good idea, too.

Anyway, congrats on Centurial Diamond. Looks like it isn't quite as bad as it used to be, although I've heard that version 0.9.9.5 will change things radically. (Although I've ALSO heard that 0.9.9.5 will change the normal game quite radically too, so there's that.)

That some realy epic gear you're packin' there, and that lvl 1 Nano mod was the harbinger of victory :P.

Seems you got lucky in the enemy department -- no cyberdemons generated :).

7 days? Good thing you didn't lose in the endgame, something might have died.  Any idea what your in-game time was like?

Lucky L1 vaults are quite nice, my best was the Necroarmor.

The best run I had before got a Lvl 1 Malek's. Just couldn't find healthpacks to save my life.

@Game Hunter
After some more reflection I would've Nano'd the plasma rifle and left it unmodded except for the Nano pack until I could disassemble it and then assemble a Nanomanufacture plasma. Since I had EE2 I wasn't sweating the sniper pack but probably would've gone firestorm for the two turn Vile kills.

@The Master of the Universe
I did get freakishly lucky, thank you RNG. I don't suppose you could have the Scavenge ability prioritize Unique>Exotic>Basic mods from weapons? I was praying that was the case but I'd understand if it was too much.

@rchandra
I think I spent about a full twelve hours on this one. But I'm playing between work assignments....

Nano mod on level 1?  Wow!  :o

- Scavenging my original plasma rifle with A1T1N1B2 gave me a technical mod :'(

Yeah, I've found Scavenger to be pretty unpredictable.  It can be very powerful if it gives you unique or exotic mods, but otherwise you can't really rely on it.  Recently, I was trying to build a Storm Bolter Pistol, and I scavenged an assault cannon, hoping to get the Firestorm back but got a bulk mod instead.  :|  Later, I had everything I needed except for a bulk mod and I scavenged a gatling gun, and got a tech mod instead.  (Grrr!)

Do you know the chances of getting any particular mod? Everything you said was very likely to happen.

Regular weapons will give you a random mod that was used to create them. There was a 4/5 chance of getting a non-nano mod from that plasma rifle and a 1/5 chance of getting your nano back.
Assembled weapons will always give a random normal mod no matter what.
Exotic weapons have a 1 in 6 chance of firestorm, 1 in 6 for sniper, 2 in 3 for random regular mod.

What you really want to be disassembling is uniques, which give onyx and nano on a 1 in 6 chance and an exotic mod otherwise.

The wiki says that you've got a 1/3 chance of Unique mods from Unique weapons (else Exotic) and a 1/3 chance of Exotic mods from Exotic weapons (else Basic).
