[M|AoB|96%||YAVP] AoB finally!
« on: June 24, 2012, 19:32 »

Was having trouble fine-tuning my melee strategy. Kept wanting to go for move-speed like my last Shottyhead challenge, only as a Marine Vampyre. Finally decided to give that up and go with a passive defense, then my games started improving. Everybody dumps on TaN in the endgame, but an extra 2 armor does make the health gain from Vampyre go that much farther.

For awhile I was going Fin -> Fin -> WK2 because I wanted a Ripper, but when I finally did assemble that Ripper, I found that the -4 accuracy makes it a worse weapon than the Longinus Spear. A-mod would probably help there, but I died before finding one. Finally. when I decided to not do the Vaults and just take the stairs every level after the Mortuary, I was able to knock AoB off the "Silver Badge's to get" list. Kept wanting to do the Wall, with the homing phase from HA, but none of the phases I found on levels 1-6 put me behind it.

Notes: Try to get to Hell's Arena without using a single medkit. Then fight every demon with running turned on, and use a kit as soon as running expires. On AoB a Large Health globe spawns with the third wave, That + Berserker should see you through. CC+ is straightforward, grab the saw, and annihilate the Caco's/Knights with it, one more for the AM, save the last for healing. It's worth it, the dodge bonus from Tac Boots goes a long way in a melee game, and there's a lot of experience there.

It's generally not a good idea to get Iro in berserker builds, since it lowers the chance to get zerked while taking damage (you need to take at least third of your health - without armour - to get it to activate).

Other than than, good show!

Knocked out AoLT while I was at it. The move-speed bonus I thought would work well with a Blademaster build, and boy did it. One of the easier challenges I've attempted, beat it on only the second try. Going to try MMB on AoI next.

You could have gotten Finesse - a DPS increase is never a bad idea.

In any case, I'm just pointing out the unfortunate negative synergy between Iro and Ber. I didn't know that for quite some time (then again, I don't take Iro too often.)

Yeah, Finesse is especially useful in any case.
