[N!|AoD|92%|9|YASD] Shamblers suck!
« on: April 16, 2013, 15:19 »

I think I'm getting the hang of nightmare a bit, though getting past anomaly is still quite a challenge for me. This time I tried AoD to get that nice XP boost. I figure that if I can survive long enough, Cateye pretty much neutralizes the disadvantages of this challenge but I still get to keep the extra XP for the rest of the game.

I did my best to clean out most of the levels completely, though I ran through Arena hoping to get on track to getting Hunter Diamond as well. I skipped Phobos lab though, since there was an invulnerability globe close to regular stairs to the Anomaly, and besides, I don't think I would manage to survive the lab on n!.

Level 9 was an arachnotron cave with a very dangerous starting position. Phase saved me, though I had to burn a couple of medkits, but on the other hand I was able to farm a lot of cells.

Deimos labs looked pretty good at first. I killed and disposed of everything up to the Shamblers and actually killed them both relatively cleanly, but since I took my time cleaning the first part of the level, they respawned before I could blast their corpses. One of them teleported into acid and I killed him there, but I was no match for the other one.

Well, at least I managed to snag schematics with for cybernano armour once I saw I won't survive, so the run wasn't a complete waste.

Personally, I decided the Deimos Lab was better to just raid and leave than actually clean out.

It's very easy to do a smash and grab to get all the breakable crates, the mods, and any exotics in there, and then split. It's really tempting to go for the big cache-that can be a run definer, getting a nice Nano or Onyx-but I was pretty afraid of exactly what happened there to you.

Phobos Lab I tried a few times. It's possible but it's really irritating and requires a pretty specific set of actions, as far as I can tell. (Lure most of the Nightmare Demons into the acid, be willing to blow some healing clearing out the tunnel further in because they are never, ever going to move, truck over to the west side, grab both Envirosuits, use one, hit switch, run left straight up the big acid pit until the second set of Demons are let out and you get the scripted loss of Envirosuit, use the second, then run right back over the acid so the demons follow you into that and get shotgunned to death, then leave.)

Mostly the loot's bad by N!, though. One mod isn't a great reward, neither is one specific shotgun or a Blue Armor, and the two large medkits-the reason I usually go in-I've never managed to actually keep through the whole thing on N!. For that matter, the times I tried the place, I usually slipped up someplace weird and died.

I was wondering if the AoD EXP stacked on N!. Since it does... I think you're onto something there, as far as ways to get through N! goes.

I think I'll try to pass Deimos lab if I can hold onto an envirosuit and kill the shamblers in the acid near the supercharges. My DPS was up to the task, but I shouldn't have forgotten to dispose of the shambling bastards. The vision of getting more master assembly schematics is appealing to me. I feel the Technician Diamond Badge    is finally within my reach.
