So, a while back, in February, Sereg challenged me to get Lightfoot Angelic without using melee to aid boss fights.  (And he renewed that challenge again in June)  :)  It took me a while, but I finally did it!  Yay!  :D

I did it with a Sharpshooter build to maximize ammo efficiency, since that's what worked for me when I got Lightfoot Diamond before.  The run was aided immensely by a nano mod from Hell's Armory which I eventually turned into a Nanomachic Pistol which permanently put an end to my ammo worries and made the rest of the game fairly simple.  This makes it less of an effective demonstration than I wanted to, since Sereg insists that you need to weaken Cybie and SMM with melee attacks to save ammo, but I maintain that if I hadn't gotten the nano mod, it would've taken 57 bullets to kill Cybie and a similar number to kill the SMM and I had been entering practically every level with a full stack of bullets, (or in many cases an ammochain) so it should have been doable.

As is usual for me these days, I recorded it; here are the videos:

Part 1  Featuring:  Hell's Arena, Chained Court (Plus!), Phobos Lab, Phobos Anomaly

Part 2  Featuring:  Hell's Armory, Spider's Lair, Tower of Babel

Part 3  Featuring:  Dis

I never intended to try for Conqueror, of course, since Unholy Cathedral would be an impossibility.  I considered getting Explorer, but skipped Abyssal Plains because the prospect of being trapped in the ambush, surrounded by Pain Elementals, being able to shoot only one at a time, was very unappealing, and I just kind of didn't bother with special levels after that.  (Except Spider's Lair where I almost died before giving up and fleeing for my life)

I made a point of taking things *very* slowly from beginning to end...  (well not quite to end; I sped up later on, once I got the Nanomachine)  :P  I took the time to be careful every step of the way and took lots and lots of breaks so I wouldn't get bored or tired or do anything reckless.  (It ended up being almost 7 solid hours of gameplay!)  :o  There were still some *very* harrowing battles, most notably in Phobos Lab and Phobos Anomaly where in both of which I got reduced below 10% health, without med packs, and surrounded by Nightmare Demons.  Not gonna lie; I did not expect to survive those situations, but somehow, I pulled it off and it made my victory all the more epic!  :D

Well played,  sir. I am both surprised and very impressed, as promised.

And with that,  you've passed papilio in Angelic badge count.  Now *that* is impressive.

Any of the last 9 looking doable? I know you've been after Everyman, but are there any others you're thinking about trying?

Regarding this run... how did you handle the cyberdemon without Dodgemaster, Fireangel, or even Hellrunner?

Obviously mastermind is trivial with Int2, but personally I have lots of trouble with Cybie.

Thank you!  Thank you!  :D

Oh, really?   I hadn't realized!  :o  I wonder what Papilio is up to these days...

Well...  I think I've tried all of them at one time or another, except the damageless ones.  To tell you the truth, I'm a little reluctant to get a ninth Angelic badge anyway because I like holding the rank of Chaos Major General for the tangential Pirates of Penzance reference.  :D

Regarding this run... how did you handle the cyberdemon without Dodgemaster, Fireangel, or even Hellrunner?

I was fast enough to dodge a majority of the Cyberdemon's rockets and a lucky envirosuit gave me 25% fire protection right before I went in there.  I also counted bullets from the time Cybie reloaded so that I could duck behind cover when he was ready to fire again.  Unfortunately, the cover I chose was right next to another structure that he kept hitting that was close enough to injure me from splash damage, so it was far from ideal, but after weighing my options, I decided to stick with the same cover anyway, because I was already making good progress by then and I didn't want to risk giving him the chance to get extra shots on me while I sought out new cover.  It's all there in the video at the end of part 2.  :)  I'm afraid I haven't added my usual helpful links to specific battles in the video yet; I'm on my way to a dental appointment right now and it'll have to wait 'til I get home.  :)

Thanks.  :)  I hope you get some use out of the video; it's a lot longer than some of my other ones, so I worry that people will find it boring.  (three hours each to get through Phobos and Deimos!)  :o

Absolutely amazing, well done.

Thank you!  :D

The more I watch you and your achievements, the more I think that you might the one to get the Quad Angelic legitimately (and with a video for good measure).

Congratulations on yet another awesome run! :)

I'm flattered by your confidence, but that's not happening.  I had enough trouble keeping below 200 damage; I don't see myself ever playing a game where I take zero damage.

i'm highly skeptical that the damageless angelics are even possible

Theoretically, anything is possible, but I can't imagine devoting the time and patience necessary to achieve it.
