I think Rajhin meant to say mortem tags.  ;)

You can put the mortem in this forum and use the format outlined in this thread.

I'd be pretty curious to see it; I've been playing this game for a while and I have yet to wield the Dragonslayer or wear the Berserker Armor.  Just remember not to reveal the secret of how you did it.  :)

EDIT:  Oh yeah, and you might want to submit a bug report about the error message you got.  You should be able to find the message in your error.log file.

Thanks for the advice - I have posted it on the mortem forum, here it is

http://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,6261.0.html

I have never encountered the apostle before, but I am only playing since version (0.9.9.6). Going to post the error log as well now.

And now, it's *my* turn to have the DS sitting in front of me, taunting me.  :P

I've already exhausted all the ideas I came up with, none of which worked.  :|  I think I may just leave this running for a while until I think of something new, but I may end up giving up again.  I really hope I get it!  With all the multitudes of people picking it up lately, I have a good feeling about it this time.  :)

I think I'm going to have to give up on this for now...  :(  I have to go to work and the weather report says a storm's coming in and I don't want to lose my game to a power outage.

Next time, Dragonslayer, next time...

Just found my first, as well... not sure if I even want to try picking it up, though. I don't think I'll be able to finish this Ao666 run with a melee weapon, even one that powerful.

Edit: I left it without trying to pick it up. Not really sure how to go about that, and can't risk succeeding and losing my run. Hopefully it'll spawn another time when I'm not 107 floors deep into an AAo666 game with awesome gear that I'll play hundreds of games before finding again. Right now it feels like a cakewalk, and I'd like to preserve that.

So I guess I'm the last one who didn't ever see the damn thing? Too bad you didn't manage to pick it up...

No, Dragonslayer... I'm playing an Ammochain game. I can't use you. Please stop trying to entice me.

First on 107, now on 119... how many times is this going to show up? If I was actually willing to pick it up, I might even be able to figure out how, given that it's throwing itself at me...

I've found like 3 dragonslayers and even more berserker armors. I honestly didn't know it was that rare. I always just leave them because I think it's stupid as hell that no one can figure out how to pick it up and the information about how to do so is censored.

Haven't found any since 0.9.9.6, though.

Dragonslayer is so good that, if you can pick it up, it's worth throwing your entire build for.

Maybe if you have a Master skill that blocks Hellrunner, Brute and TaN, but none actually do that. (Cateye blocks two out of three though, and I might have to actually think about it there.)

This is starting to get old...

I'm already level 25 with no brute or TaN, sadly. Regardless, my current build one shots barons and two shots almost everything bigger. Literally the only thing that takes more then a couple of bursts is a Cyberdemon, and those have been pretty rare.

I almost want to try it, but with nearly 500 levels to go, and no way to adjust my build to it, I don't think it's gonna be worth it.

Edit: Dammit, I've just discovered that I apparently missed a kill somewhere, somehow. Here's hoping it's a bug and when I finish it'll display correctly - I've only left levels once they turn blue =X

Nope, Klear. I am yet to see it as well.

@Sereg, well, I've heard that if you don't try to pick it up, there's a chance of getting it again, but three in one game sounds crazy unusual!  :o  I played a whole Ao100 and AAo666 game without even one of them showing up!  Incidentally, it's none of my business, but if you did successfully pick it up, that's not the worst thing that could happen.  :P

I'm not sure... I had the Inquisitor set with that nice speed boost, but then I managed to lock on a nanoskin armor which won't come off and is blocking my technician diamond this run(so is a complete lack of chainsaws - how do I get 3x DS and not a single chainsaw?), so I don't think I have the movespeed to make a melee clear work. Currently I'm sitting back and blowing people away from ridiculous ranges, especially if I get light amp or tracking computer - if I had to close all that distance, I think I'd take more damage then I could sustain.

Even if I could one-shot anything with DS, that's not a huge improvement over my current weapon, and it exposes me to far more damage... unless DS has abilities I'm entirely unaware of. Not something I'm really willing to risk this run, I think - maybe when I go back with Scavenger to finish off my assembly collection, I'll give it a try if I find it again.

Dammit, this thread is calling me to try another ArchAo666 run...
I swear, 666 runs are only good for hunting for items and finishing up your Cyberdemon quota. Barring, of course, there is only one badge in the game that actually requires a 666 clear...

and maybe I'll find a DS and spend an hour or two mucking with it and screaming at my monitor all the while
