[U|ArchAoLT|99%|YAVP|Live Fast And Die Hard]
« on: April 19, 2015, 10:30 »

Been playing DoomRL for a little while, but wanted to post something substantial for my first mortem and I figured this was decent enough.

I actually ended up spending way longer on this than expected. Theoretically I figured that the lack of space to store ammo and Medpacks would make Marine's Vampyre trait the ideal way to go. Helped along by the massive speed boost that negated the main reason I almost always go scout over marine I figured I'd get in there, wreck some shit and be done before dinner that night. Practically though, it turns out I'm pretty bad when it comes to melee and could never make it past lvl 11, despite three days and many attempts passing.

I was already pretty aware of my lack of skill in the melee department thanks to a few AoB attempts made in the past, so my main strategy was to take a couple of levels in reloader at the start and use the two inventory slots to store shotgun ammo. Through very liberal radar shooting I was able to avoid a lot amount of damage in the early game, but by deimos I just felt that without dodgemaster I was taking way too much damage to sustain, even with Vampyre.

I was ranting to 2birds1stone about this when he suggested trying masterless scout for extreme speed. So, fed up with doing so badly I decided to give it a go and the resulting mortem occurred. I found a nuke on hell 4 and was hoping to find some invuln orbs to let me get the full win, but no such luck :( I have a slightly better grasp of how to melee properly now but I'll probably stick to using the last few levels of Hell as a missile dumping ground. Though one question I do have is about the berserker trait. Does the damage that you take to go berserk get reduced by the added resistances? Because I found a lot of the hits that turned me berserk did nowhere near 1/3 of my health in damage.

Nice mortem, UV 99% on an Archangel challenge is a damn good achievement. Any idea where that pesky last one was?

Berserker is affected by the damage you would have taken before your resistances are taken into account (and possibly before armour as well, but I'm not 100% sure on that one).

Thanks :) unfortunately I don't know where I missed it. I'm usually fairly carefully to make sure the level name is blue, but I remember checking kill count after finishing Deimos 5 and seeing that I was missing one. I really need to get into the habit of checking at the start and end of each level, but I get caught up in the moment sometimes.

Awww, I got a mention.

Scout is unreasonable to the point of brokenness in both of the Light Travel challenges IMO, glad you had fun abusing it.

99% + Lightfoot Gold is actually pretty good, almost all of my Lightfoot badges have been low% runs, grats.
