[M|AoB|100%|YAVP] I did it at last!
« on: March 28, 2013, 15:03 »

My first AoB victory! Is it a bit simple than in previous builds? Anyway it was pretty hard only at the beginning. And more than just hard at Chained Cort. Luckily I could've cleared it spending all my medkits and armors. Cause staff of Arena's Master helped me later more than once. And I almost died on the Wall (4% hp and plenty of barons and knights around) because I jumped right in the monster crowd. That was incautious but luck sat in my pocket this time. After that almost no difficulties at all. Berserker and Vampyre traits helped really much. I'll try AoB with other classes definitely, but later.

Grats. I know for a fact that a player's first longinus spear & AoB victory is always very exhilarating. :P

What were your tactics for the Arena? Apart from the fact that I'd usually rather skip it and have a chainsaw handed to me on a silver plate, I really don't understand how you beat the Arena on melee unless you're packing a serious amount of medkits and armors. And since it's been moved from "maybe on dlev 3" to "always on dlev 2"... I don't mind with most other builds (although I changed my mind halfway through the first wave on AoMr as well), but with melee I'm still not really comfortable with that.

It's best if you can get a zerk just prior entering and the monsters spawn close. It's usually a close call, but the Arena spawns a large health globe (which triggers zerk) on AoB after the 2nd wave, so that helps.

From my experience, Arena is quite difficult on AoB, but the rewards will replenish your stuff and so you'll basically leave with extra XP.

Yeah, but it kinda is the "leaving at all" that worries me...

My personal experience with Arena on AoB is only with 0.9.9.6, when Arena was on either Floor 2 or 3.
If Arena appeared on Floor 2, restart.
If Arena appeared on Floor 3, attempt. I usually make it past the first wave, and then the second wave kills me because berserker loves to proc when nothing is around to berserk on. Argh.

On another note though, I had a Blademaster Sunrise Iron Fist + Conqueror run on ITYTD earlier where I finished Arena with 3 levels into Brute instead of getting Berserker, since from prior experience, Berserker probably would not proc at the times I wanted it to proc (see definition: RNG). In a similar situation, I wonder if a point into Hellrunner or Tough as Nails would have been useful, but I doubt one extra point of armor would help as much as some more dodge chance.

Yeah, I also found it useful to get Bru 3 before Ber in the Arena when attempting AoB UV (I never finished the game, but I got thru the arena occasionaly, I must add). Ber just doesn't trigger often enough and with unfavourable monster placement tends to run out before being useful.

I tried to save all medkits and my blue armor (gives plasma resistance which is very useful against cacodemons). I also throw knives in some cases. It works for pinkies for example or for any other monster that you're killing with corner tactics if you know what I mean. Usually you have enough time to through one knife and then turn to the prepared weapon - another knife. And yes as it was said - large health globe helped really much. BTW - I advise you to keep at least one knife with you all the time even if you'll find good melee weapon. You can destroy not opening doors with throwing knife into them.

Thanks, the plasma resistance goes without saying of course - provided you manage to hold on to the armor you get at the start or find another one.
The throwing knife thing is something I've never tried as of yet. Thanks for the tip!
