Could you maybe stop posting the stuff that isn't working? I'd rather give it a fair shot without any hints.

Reasons for theory:
Berskerk!'s story (I really must re-read it), Dragonslayer being a type of multiple-rocket artillery as well as a big sword (you can have one and not the other) and the aforementioned sacrifice posts (I still don't know if the daemons behind the wall are allegorically Polish or commies. Maybe neither). Now I'll probably never see it again for a few versions.
I may have not read all the Berserk volumes, but I have read enough of them to say that DS is not a multiple-rocket artillery...

The Devteam is doing a good job and has made a terrific game that deserves to be commended.  Again, I don't want to anger anyone and I don't want to undermine the great work they have made on the game, but I think it is also worth noting that the previous version was released with a number of major bugs (Fireangel, Destroyer Diamond, etc.) and this version was very nearly released with a major bug that would have denied people a lot of badges that I thankfully caught at the last minute.  This bug came about because of an emphasis on adding new features over cleaning up existing problems.  This is not to say that the Devteam never fixes bugs; I'm just saying that Skarczew has a legitimate complaint.

I hope noone is angry about this post, but just in case, this should calm anyone down!  :D

EDIT:  Ooh!  666th post!  Ominous!  :o
Thanks, that is exactly what I am thinking (and sometimes I have problems formulating my feelings).

Btw, nice kittens! =)

That's why it's all spoiler tagged ;)

Not everything. That's why I said that.

I just picked up the Dragonslayer for the first time ever (3rd time I'd seen it). When I entered the level I got 'This will be a mess, Khe he he' AND 'You hear the sound of Hellish Mortars' AND 'There is something really valuable here'. With all the barrels and explosions, I was tempted to just leave as soon as found the stairs - until I saw what was lying on the ground.

I also have Berserker Armor from about 10 levels earlier :-)

Kinda ruined my Ao100 MSc build-all-the-assemblies run I was in the middle of, but I don't care!

Ohoho, the requirement is stricter than I realized.  I feel rather foolish now.

So I guess it actually is possible screw yourself out of being able to pick it up, now that I think about it.

Well, I think that mystery about DS is ... contrived?

This discussion has gone on enough.  No more.

I warned you all that I'm monitoring this.

Edit: Upon conferring with Kornel, we will be unlocking this.

Ok, this is seriously a joke that went too far - I've seen people raging about the DS/BA no-spoiler ChaosForge rule on other forums :).

Hence, let's just agree that the topic of the DS/BA should not appear on the official Wiki, and if being discussed on the forums, please use spoiler tags.

Have fun, and do not rage! (at least not until wielding the Dragonslayer!)

Also, to be clear, I am merely an enforcer -- I enforce the Will of the God Hand.

No hard feelings to everyone involved.
