I can't figure out if I favor speed or power in some of these challenges. Before I attempted this run, I was mostly aiming for Gun Kata, but I always died before I got Dodgemaster. I've heard great things about Sharpshooter, and maybe if/when I attempt UV AoMr I'll try that out, but building Bullet Dance seemed like a good idea at the time. Judging by how this turned out, I can't say that Bullet Dance was a bad choice. Having the combat pistol show up when it did helped though.

I had enough mods to dual-wield storm bolters, but then I found a combat pistol and I wasn't able to find another T mod. Wasn't too sure if I should have opted for the high power combat pistol instead of a B1P1 combat pistol. With my build I was able to go through the arch-vile only floor on floor 19 without taking a hit, so that was neat.

The 9 enemies that I missed were:
- the bruiser brothers at the anomaly
- 7 enemies on floor 15 with a primed nuke, had three minutes left and I didn't want to risk getting melted from the nuke that I didn't place, so I made a beeline for the stairs

And then I found a Trigun. And then there were two invulernability globes really close to one another. And I also had two homing phase devices with me. So I put the Trigun to good use. Almost feels like cheating, using that Trigun for that purpose.

As a small aside, I passed my 10 day mark on DoomRL. :whoo:

Gun Kata may be good for Cybie, but my favourite build is CatEyed Glass Canon Scout. With Sharpshooter you can't go wrong either.

And if you ask about power or speed, I would say... go both! Why didn't you take more SoG or TH? :P
At UV you may need better damage : bullet ratio, so every additional point of damage counts ;) . Not to mention bullet-time-like firespeed with SoG * 5.

I think the reason why I didn't take more SoG was because I was so concerned with getting Whizkid to finish up my storm bolter, but then I found the Trigun and I didn't care anymore. Though I do keep forgetting that SoG doesn't cap at 2.
