Well, this is it. The secondmost-grindy challenge possible in DoomRL is done, and I'm not certain whether the most grindy challenge, Nightmare AAo666 YAAM, is humanly possible at all, mostly given the no-save restriction.

I played this run for slightly over a month, a few levels here and there. Hence the number of saves and the play time (at least once I fell asleep with this game running).

I _love_ the Sharpshooter build. Once it gets rollling, it can produce one of the highest DPS possible in the game. I believe that out of those 56565 kills (nicely shaped number :) ), only a few hundreds or so were non-pistol kills.

I learned my lesson from my previous Ao100 YAAM Sharpshooter run, when I nearly ran out of pistol ammo. This time, I used a heavily modded P3B2 blaster, first in combination with the GCB, and later with what I personally call White Death (in memory of Simo Häyhä, one of the best WW2 snipers) - a P3B2-modded combat pistol. As a tertiary weapon I assembled the Mother-In-Law, for times, when corpse disposal was a really high priority.

This run was made much easier for me when I completed the Inquisitor's Set at levels 56 and 67. A complete immunity to fire allowed me to laugh into VMR packs' faces, and considerably improved my maneuverability, treating lava as solid ground. After finding the Set, I was pretty much indestructible, and I supported it with Iro5 taken as my last five traits. In this situation, I could have been only killed by doing something _very, very stupid_ (doing something normally stupid was fine :) ), or by a really, really bad starting position, like starting in the middle of nightmare demons or arachs caves.

That being said, those nightmare demons and arachs caves were pretty much the only challenging levels. A nightmare demon cave felt like an advancing wall of doom, kept at bay only by knockback, and sometimes, even that wasn't enough. Nightmare arachs then could inflict pretty high damage at the start of a level.

On the other hand, there were levels where I spawned with a Cyberdemon right in the line of fire. The feeling of a Cybie kill before he even has a chance to move or retaliate is simply priceless.

In this run, I also had a sidequest besides simply completing the challenge, and that was finishing the last three master assemblies for Technician Diamond.
I failed.
Seriously, in a run like this you'll find all the uniques, all the extras and so many mods that you could get Tech Diamond even if you started from nothing (barring unequippable armors, that is) - but all of this is worth nothing when you don't find the items to slap the mods on. Out of the three assemblies needed, the cybernano armor was no problem (I actually finished the assembly right after clearing floor 666 before leaving), but the other two, the biggest fucking gun and the ripper? I only found one BFG9000 on level _550_. And I was even less lucky with chainsaw - I found only one during the whole run at level 240-something, only to see it destroyed by a stray mancubus rocket. Ah well - can't have everything, and at least the components for the ripper are easy to find in normal games.
That being said - I had to rely on GCB until level 282, when I finally found a combat pistol and turned it into White Death, finally peaking my damage output. This weapon is simply a beast.

As I slowly advanced deeper and deeper, the amount of monsters per levels went to staggering amounts. In the end, 100+ monsters generated on a single level became a more and more common sight, happening more often than not in the last hundred-or-somesuch levels. The most monsters generated on a single level was _160_, in a "Hellish magic fills the air!" level (an archvile+formers complex, with about 1/4 of the monsters being viles).
But the most-kills levels were the pain elemental and agony elemental caves. I encountered five of these, with 398, 505, 707, 534 and 506 killstreaks respectively. Two of those particularly stand out: The level 529 agony elemental cave, where, after clearing the initial on-screen wave of enemies I opted for conserving ammo, leaving my blaster to recharge whenever possible, thus allowing the elementals to breed a bit, leaving me with a killstreak of 707 - my best DoomRL killstreak ever. The other one was the last pain elemental cave, encountered at level 640-something, when I ran to the left in a lava river (again, the Inquisitor's Set was a huge boon here), allowing me to simply wait for the elementals and lost souls to come to me for their deaths and leaving my blaster to recharge inbetween. I racked up a killstreak of 506 without spending a single bullet.

Some more interesting numbers come up when I compare this single run to the rest of my whole previous DoomRL 0,997 career (which took me to Archvile Br. General rank, no less):
  • This game took me three days and fourteen hours. The whole of my previous career took four days and six hours.
  • Prior to this game, I racked up a total of 28589 kills. This game netted 56565 - I was only a few hundred kills shy of doubling my previous career killcount.
  • In fact, checking the rank requirements, this single run would carry me from Human rank all way  to Cyberdemon (provided I could throw in some melee kills as well).
  • The difference is even more notable when considering Cybies. I've had 18 Cybies on my deathlist before this game - and 152 in this game. My Cybie kill list grew to almost ten times the original size. I didn't encounter any Cybie complex in this run, but at least once I encountered three Cybies on a single level. Of course, with the Inquisitor's Set, I could not only laugh them off - I could even use them to wipe the floor of unwanted corpses :).
  • An even more massive increase of a deathlist came for nightmare archviles. Out of 504 total kills I have now, 492 were scored in this run.
  • The 50000th kill was a former captain (on level 609), and the 55555th kill was a baron of hell (on level 658) - these two were the most-encountered enemies in this run.
  • Last but not least, the score in this run was 37122516 points. Compared to my second-highest score of 2353162 (UV Ao100 YAAM, Sharpshooter of course :) ), it's almost 16 times higher. Compared to my best non-Ao100/AAo666 game, the score is 103 times higher (a UV AoMr YAAM run, Sharpshooter again, scoring 358528 points). Quite an increase.

Well, that's it. It was grind like no other, and with no rewards other than a good feeling. But at least, the Infernal Sharpshooter is finally done.

* ZicherCZ will now take a short break from DoomRL, if you please.

PS: I noticed that a killstreak is broken when you are hit - even if you completely resist the hit and take no damage (for example, you're hit by a revenant rocket while wearing the Inquisitor Set, taking zero damage). Is this intentional? I'm not calling it a bug, just pointing out the behavior.

Awesome.

Actually, Ao666 is so boring.. I think the fastest way (in time) to blaze through Ao666 could be:

1. Select Scout and take Shottyhead build.
2. Assemble nanosharpnel super shotgun +P, nuclear biggest fucking gun +F (as a subweapon).
3. Just press f button over and over.
