I do understand why some people would want to figure it out on their own, and don't want it spoiled... but as far as I'm concerned, someone could PM me how to do it and I'd be just fine.

I actually have had a number of people PMing me, offering clues and answers and so far, I've turned them down.  It feels like it would defeat the purpose of figuring it out if someone tells me how to do it; I wouldn't feel like I achieved anything.

But then again, as you said...

...I just don't feel like stressing about it for hours, leaving the game running, trying all sorts of ridiculous things that probably aren't even close to what's actually required, and otherwise hating life, like so many people seem to be doing because of it =P

This.  If I don't figure it out, what's the point of stressing over it?  Maybe I should just accept the hints people are offering me.  :S

...If I'm correct, from a strict gameplay standpoint, you're better off with the Cybernano.

Thanks, got it now, and it has space for an extra P mod... I wonder if I should have waited for some Gothic armor, just to make it as ridiculously strong as possible.

Found it again... not the slightest clue how to pick it up, though.


Here it is again *sigh* spoiler updated... still no luck.

It's not overly complex to pick it up unless it has changed since the last version. Don't overthink it.

Don't worry.  I have maliciously changed something in the source code that you will probably see in the next release.

Heck, I might even change more.

I can only do things that occur to me =P if it was simple... well, pressing "g" and "u" have already occurred to me =P

While I suppose it's reassuring to know it's not overly complicated, that still doesn't solve the problem of picking it up. The only thing I can think of now is that it might require a higher difficulty setting then what I play on.

I've played a game of Ao100 yesterday... pretty fun, but no luck with the DS. I guess RNG is not feeling generous anymore.

I think I'll try it on n! again... some time ago I was on the right track a couple of times, so maybe I'll finally be able to pull it off...

Just as a thought. Any character can pick up DS. But there is at least one stipulation, maybe many.

What do you do in Hell's Arena, and what do you fight for?

That may give you a chance to fight a smaller boss in the grand scheme of things, but do you have to? Who's arena is it, and why do you destroy this small beast?

Perhaps your rewards will allow you to blow away any wall, in anger or not. Only to gain greater destruction from it. Are those on the other side of the wall barricading themselves in, or you out, or simply a last vestige of those strong enough to fight hell? Is the wall against you, or against those you fight as well?

Are you, by fighting tournaments, killing grand champions, destroying ursurpers and raiding the riches of hell with your artifacts and weaponry simply playing a part in the mastermind's plan?

Only a champion that can sacrifice himself for his cause can wield the dragon-slayer. There is no reward but death............

Implication being DS is tied to the Arena/Court/Vault storyline? If so, that would explain why I was unable to lift it in AAo666...

Not really, you can wield it during Ao100 as well:
