I tried to go for Destroyer Platinum on this run, and managed to pick up Gatekeeper Diamond along the way.

Level 2 housed the Jackhammer. Game starts don't get much better than that. Turns out, though, that it's affected by Triggerhappy.

Hell's Arena no damage, The Wall no damage, Hell's Armory one hit...

Spider's Lair went rather painlessly.

Cyberdemon kept sidestepping the missiles.

I wanted to make a Powered Duelist armor, but never got to that point...

I wanted to use the Jackhammer to destroy the Mortuary and potentially get the Angelic Badge...but I died beforehand. Appearantly I somehow failed to see that the Jackhammer was not fully loaded, so when I entered level 19 and got spawned right next to 3 revenants and 2 arch-viles, I thought 2 bursts from the Jackhammer would be enough. I only launched one burst, and while I should have ran, I decided to just stand like an idiot and reload. The end. Long story short, I am pissed off at myself.

That certainly is a sad way to die ...
Even then, you had a phase device, which could get you into at least some better position.

Well, no wonder that the first rule to roguelikes is "Die and learn" ...

EDIT: But anyway, congrats on the GK Diamond. Probably the easiest Diamond to get, but still it is quite an achievement.

I am not the type that destroys keyboards, so it's still alive :P
And yeah, I should aim for some more diamonds. AoMr on N! sounds possible if I can just avoid the hell knights at first, technician and armorer diamond are also easy. On the list of hardest ones, I have a question: How is Quartermaster Diamond even possible? (AoRA UV YAAM).

I wanted to make a Powered Duelist armor, but never got to that point...
BTW this isn't something that can be created. Powered armors are only compatible with "basic" armors: green, blue, and red.

How is Quartermaster Diamond even possible? (AoRA UV YAAM).
These days the best way to aim for it is probably Shottyhead: I used Fireangel back when I did it but the speed of MSh is surely better for it. Alternatively you could treat it like a Gargulec Cross run (except you can use shotties for the early-game) and pick Blademaster for the speed. I'd be careful about certain special levels, although if you manage to get far enough with the melee method, everything goes by rather quickly.

As Game Hunter indicated, you want a build that gives you lots of speed!  Personally, I did mine with a Malicious Blades build; in addition to the benefit of two levels of Hellrunner at the beginning, the extra resistances let me charge into the fray to quickly dispatch my enemies.

I agree with Tormuse - when you get MMB trait run becomes rather easy, allowing u to run into groups of enemies(and if u get Butcher's Cleaver it becomes very easy). First levels would be real pain(at least for me, cuz if i do MMB run i do it with Malicious Knives Cross xD), but Deimos and Hell would be completed rather fast. So I would try to do Conqueror AoRa run after my exams, cuz it looks like an intersting challenge.
