Well, I wanted to see the Angelic requirements, and I thought Longinus the easiest one. And I was correct, as it took me only four or five attempts before things clicked into place.

My strategy was easy - pick up a Scout and simply outrun AoD. With Fin2/HR2 I had 0.64s both attack and movespeed. A lucky invulnerability on Hell 1 spawned close to me, allowing me to level up to 3 in perfect safety. Some of the invuln lasted even into the UC for the initial wave of lost souls. The demons? I simply led them into a lava bath effortlessly, granting me level 4. I had everything I needed.
Then, I just escaped from the AoD, and when he didn't move and was two squares away from me, I waited. This brought him into my melee range, but giving me a free attack without him having a chance to retaliate. Rinse and repeat until he's dead. He did not attack me at all.

The next level got me killed, but I didn't mind at all.

What's too easy (and needs to be fixed) is not longinus diamond, it's Angel of death. He's clearly ridiculous.

As long as there will be dual angels, anyway, you'll just have to come in with an AoB and zerk him. It's quite easy too (you may even take EE for accuracy).

Hey, that *is* easy... time to update the badge count.

I've actually been doing it without AoB on Reaper Gold attempts, going Marine with Bru->Bru->Ber and just stabbing him to death with my combat knife and whatever mods I can find for it. It's a lot easier to 100% clear for Scythe, to say nothing of making it down to the Mortuary, without being melee restricted.

On a related note, Scythe is easily my most found unique, with 22, compared to the second best, AMS, at 13.

It's not _that_ easy. Longinus Diamond disallows Brute (and thus Berserker as well), so no zerking from this source. You get one berserk from dropping and then picking up the starting chainsaw (which, I believe, is already in bug reports), and that may well be not enough to take AoD all the way down. Plus, you might need that one zerk to pass the starting level.
