[U|AoB|99%|23|YASD] Critical Miss
« on: November 16, 2011, 01:39 »

I decided to try for the Gargulec Cross today and came *very* close to making it.  As is typical with melee builds, the early game was the toughest part, and I managed it with lots of "gift-dropping," a technique I came up with independently, and later learned there was a name for it from watching one of Game Hunter's videos.  :)

It was pretty smooth sailing once I got Vampyre trait until I started encountering Arch-Viles, who caught me out in the open a few times without berserk and I lost all my med-packs.  In the end, the level was down to one injured Revenant and I managed to retreat around a corner with 2% health left.  My only chance of success was for him to come around the corner and have me hit him first.  I waited there for a while, alternating between pushing "," and "." so I would rest twenty turns at a time, until finally he came around and...  I missed!  ...ARGH!  One hit from Azrael's Scythe would have finished him off; what a terrible time for the RNG to mess me up!  :(

 You miss the revenant. The revenant hits you. Your blue armor is
 damaged! You die!... Press <Enter>...

 676 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 517 of those were killed.
 28 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 23 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 108 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 15 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 93 killed the bastard and survived.

Last Sunday.  People keep telling me it's supposed to be a secret, so I guess I'm not supposed to say how I got it.  Let's just say that it's easier than you might think and you just need to keep playing and winning and you'll likely get it eventually.

Yes that is supposed to be a secret, but more importantly, the ultimate ending hasn't been discovered yet.

That is the deeper darker secret of it all.
