[M|Ao100|99%|YAVP] Oh COME ON!
« on: December 04, 2016, 17:16 »

Hey kids, it's been a while. I've not been playing DoomRL much (high hopes for Jupiter Hell), and... well.

Okay there's one thing that's been bugging me for-fucking-ever. The secret of the Dragonslayer. Anyways, I'm going  along, and there's apparently a hint about it if you complete Ao100.

So you know what, why not? That said, it didn't feel as long as I thought it would be... I was getting somewhat bored near the end, but I still wanted to shoot everything. If it moves, it's dead. I don't like leaving things alive. So uh, why isn't it 100%?

About 20 levels or so in there was a lava fort level, only the bridges to one of the rooms didn't spawn. Two demons, far out of my sight, and me lacking the armament to kill them properly. Such a shame. I might have to retry this.

So, some thoughts.

I'm still a chain whore. MAc has yet to do me wrong like ever, so I saw no real reason to change my playstyle now. My plan was fairly simple. Get MAc, get Whizkid, get Badass, work things out from there.

Equipment-wise I didn't really have much of a plan. I found duelist armor, so that became my early armor (I actually found THREE what the hell), and found an energy-shielded vest. Decided to make that into cybernano armor.
I also found acid-proof boots early on, which was nice, but I was fairly set on getting cerberus boots once I had full Whizkid.

Finding Malek's armor was interesting, I decided to make it my backup armor when my Duelist's and backup Red got too banged up, but seven levels later I found the Boots and quickly *didn't need anything else*. Late game, there's some plasma and acid, sure, and the rare bullet, but most of the dangerous late enemies do fire, and ignoring lava was a lovely too. Between that and badass, I pretty much never used a med kit. When I finally assembled the Cybernano armor though... okay, the Power Cybernano Energy-Shielded Vest was neat, but after spending most of the game pretty much immune to about 60% of what I dealt with, it felt like a downgrade. Great armor, great assembly, and I was very lucky throughout. But man, it felt like a letdown after Malek's + Nyarlahotep's. I have no idea why. Fortunately I had my cerb boots.

I'm also annoyed that the gothic boots spawned.... some 20 levels after I ditched the gothic armor. Oh well, the RNG was lovely to me anyways so I'll forgive it.

As I'm going MAc, I naturally want a plasma rifle. I found one, started to the high-powered rifle, then found the laser rifle. After some thought I decided that was better, and ran with it. Eventually, I just decided not to bother with anything else: any other weapon I got after ditching my gatling gun and double shotty was basically something to mess with.

All said... it was mostly grindy really. Early worries yes, but after getting set up (AKA about Badass 2) there were a few tense moments but mostly grindy. Still I think I'll do this again, if only because of the MOTHER FUCKERS WHO GOT AWAY.

So any thoughts?

That's pretty much the story of my Ao100 and AAo666 life, right there. I'm right with you on MAc builds - by far the most effective for someone like me, who doesn't appreciate doing too much inventory management.

All I can tell you on Dragonslayer is to think like a true berserker.
