With phaseshift combo, I surfed lava tide, laughing at monsters! It really change they way game is played - for the best. It would be ideal if I'd find napalm launcher (and nano mod for it), may be some day...

My early build was actually inspired by playing Doom2. I was moving very fast around, easily outrunning mobs and projectiles. I thought "hey, I want to do same in DoomRL". So, I took HR before even started on mastery. And it indeed helped both in early and late game. Knights was suddenly not a problem at all. I could run away from any serious fight/enemy nearly unscathed. Especially after I found phaseshift boots and, then, armor.
Cerberus-modding phase armor felt most like blasphemy, and I pondered some time about it (when I first time saved), but I'm sure it was right choice. Very good speed and awesome protection is better than awesome speed and barely any protection at all. There were lots of moments where resistance helped me, but barely any, where 0.27 speed would work, but 0.43 won't. Also, HR synergied well with Cateye - it lets me stay exactly at right distance from enemy.

Also, I took EE first, because without it, Cateye is of little use too - with it's sight range you have huge accuracy penalty. Actually, I should have took EE2 and EE3 earlier than I did, before SoG, and even before SoB 3-5 - difference is very noticeable.

Gear. Besides phaseshift set, game was very stingy again, not a singly onyx, nano, nuclear or napalm. No combat pistols, until 98th level. I got Malek and Butcher's, though, which I had stashed for rest of the game "just in case", never used.

I got blaster and GCB. I was skeptical about blaster, initially, but gave it a try. And with SoB5/EE3 and storm (B) modded it was very good for something with free ammo. Full 20 clip was enough for Shambler or Lave Elemental. Revenants often dropped in one burst (unless they were knockbacked out of sight and dodged rest of burst because of that). GCB is also not bad, but for my build it's just plain 11 bullets worse than Storm Combat Pistol (B).

So, I had blaster nearly always as my prepared weapon and used it for killing smaller stuff, finishing off stronger enemies, and when ammo was tight, as a primary weapon.

When I used stairs, I had missile launcher in other slot, and used it for destroying nearest clusters of enemies. Before clock started, they were mostly dead, and those alive - out of THEIR range of fire.

Because of Juggler, I used mostly (heavily modded) standard weapons. Even skipped super shotgun, because I already had focused double (B) on speed dial. Yes, I mostly used Bulk mods, because lack of Reloader really hurts.

Oh, and those 9 monster I was short of 100% - it was Arachno cave that I encountered too early. I was totally not strong enough yet to took them, so it was either Q or stairs.

Very nice win.  In the words of the DoomRL Master (2DeviationsOut), speed is the key to winning, be it faster movespeed or faster attack speed (or even faster reload).

Glad to see that you survived through UV Ao100.  =)
