Babel on AoPc?
« on: April 25, 2013, 00:34 »

I haven't played much DoomRL under the current version, and I'm not too familiar with the new layout.

I was running a few AoPc games trying to get those lower badges(I have gold from a previous version where that only required completing AoPc), and ran into some trouble at Babel.

Is there a way to run past the Cyberdemon, like with the Bruiser Brothers? Is there a staircase I didn't find? Or do you have to be lucky enough to find an invulnerability powerup on the previous level, like with the old full wins? I had to drop my nuke and settle for Bronze, and I'd like to do better next time.

There is indeed a staircase on the far end of the level...

...do note that it's only there on AoPc, though.

Good to know, thanks. I'll have a look for it next run.

It should be like that for a pacifist:
Marine: [Diplomacy] Let me pass! Your boss is a threat to all living things!
Cybie: Oh my god, you're right! Hurry, here's the key to the stairwell to Hell!

You're learning. Since you're still gaining new badges and ranks, you are definitely improving. Before you know it, you'll snatch your first diamond.

I seriously don't know how people get diamond badges. My first diamond is probably going to be from getting uniques..

Build all basic assemblies (#1: Technician). Enter Babel with plenty of Invulnerability duration left (#2: Gatekeeper). Clear Unholy Cathedral (#3: Longinus). Complete Angel of Overconfidence (#4: Daredevil; I recommend cheesing it with a Dual Angel AoB/AoOC). Complete Angel of 100 (#5: Centurial). Clear the Vaults (#6: Scavenger).

Other viable targets are "Complete the Mortuary" (Reaper) and "Complete AoMC on HMP+ with the Untouchable Badge" (Destroyer).

I'm tempted to say it's harder to get the 15 silvers than the six golds.

Armorer Platinum and Diamond should be abolished; the Dragonslayer taboo deserves every scrap of mockery it receives.

Enter Babel with plenty of Invulnerability duration left (#2: Gatekeeper).

Alternately, do Babel as Fireangel; it's pretty easy to defeat the Cyberdemon without taking damage with that trait.

Assemblies. Getting Diamond from uniques means collecting three Berserker Armors.

Means three Dragonslayers, too.

Berserker Armor, at least anyone can pick up.

To be honest, I have the same progress on Armorer Gold as I do Technician Diamond(I'm one item from both). Armorer Diamond is a pill.

Also, hope you can pull off the reqs for Azrael's Scythe three times. :)
