[M|100%|ArchAo666|YAAM] Double Promotion
« on: September 26, 2017, 21:09 »

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Another dull AAo666 grind, only notable because I promoted not only in experience rank from Arch Vile to Cyberdemon, thanks to all of those wandering around, but also in skill rank from Chaos Lt. Colonel to Chaos Colonel with the completion of my technician diamond badge.

Also, yes, those are Biggest Fucking Nuclear Guns(N1) that I am dual-wielding, and yes, they are sick as fuck for clearing levels, thanks for asking.

Edit: I've also learned that I cannot use spoiler tags inside of mortems, so you'll just have to scroll through all the level messages. Typical 666 stuff I guess.

Ao666 + YAAM deserves a medal...<something> of Patience perhaps. What a grind!

Eh, I just have a sick obsession with killing absolutely everything. Once I completed my missing assemblies(Cybernano and *B*FG) and finished my Cyberdemon kills(I was missing mere single digit kills), I should have just stairdived the rest of it, but I felt compelled to finish what I'd begun, so it took alot longer then it needed to have done.

I'm a bit disappointed in the build I chose - I had heard good things about SS, and to be fair it was an effective method for a (very small) phase of the game, but a single pistol, no matter how accurate and powerful, isn't really cut out for killing twenty thousand demons. Most of the game was bladework with the Butcher's Cleaver, but unfortunately I had almost maxed my level by the time I decided that, so I'm lacking several levels between Fin, HR, and Bru that would have made a melee run significantly smoother.

Regardless, it was still pretty effective - I completed the first *B*FNG(N1) somewhere around level 200, and after that I ran around with the big gun up and the Cleaver on juggle, blasting away whenever it charged and chopping everything else to pieces. The only trouble I really had was Nightmare Arachnotron caves, which are a pain for almost any build - otherwise the 8 points of permanent armor I had kept damage on me to a minimum even while carelessly charging around amongst packs of mancubi and viles.

Once I finished the second big gun, though... let's just say the last 50 floors didn't hold up very well. Two of those things on swap with the nano pack on top of the nuclear charging clear floors absurdly quickly, and only a handful of enemies(Cyberdemons, Nightmare Viles, Shamblers, Lava Elementals, and Agony Elementals) can survive a single blast, much less two. Really the only trouble was hardened wall levels, because otherwise the initial blast not only kills everything in sight, but also exposes everything else by obliterating all of the walls in the blast radius.

As much of a grind as this was, the end sure was a lot of fun - not often you get to play with BFGs as your permanent primary weapon system. As a space marine, this is as close as you can get to calling supporting fire from an orbiting battlecruiser.

Interesting strategy...I know I've never stood through an entire run of Ao666. The bulk of my play time was prior to that mode existence.

As for the build, if I were to attempt it, I'm 99% certain that I'd go masterless and just stack up all the basic/advanced traits. That way every unique and every assembly can remain an option. Well that and it keeps decent trait choices up to the very end. I know with Master builds on Ao100...it's slim pickings after level 20.

Yeah, masterless or melee mastery is probably the best way to go with this game type. In the past I've used Marines with Ammochain, which is pretty effective, and I thought that it would be cool to do something similar with pistols, but even with my signature F2N1S2 laser rifle, Ammochain is slower then just running around slicing everything to pieces.

Combine that with the very real possibility of Dragonslayer(I did find it this run, but unfortunately I couldn't grab it due to my Technician Diamond goal requiring that I wear cursed armor), and melee is far and away the strongest option for 666 games - unless of course you build both Death Stars like I did this run.

As far as this goes - why not simply call it the Medal of Extreme Prejudice? ;)

Medal of Extinction? It should certainly have something to commemorate such an extreme feat!

Infernal Asskicker's Badge? Because, you know, 666, the number of the beast, and you are an ass-kicking marine?
Perhaps even Infernal Asskicker's Badge/Medal/Cross for getting a YAAM AAo666 win on HNTR+, UV+ and N! respectively?

Yeah, IMHO such an achievement is borderline-impossible, especially with no saving.

So do I...  but I've never mustered the patience to do YAAM on ArchAo666.  Well done, I'm impressed!  :o

...And now that I've said that, I feel a little compelled to one-up you, so maybe I'll see if I can do it too.  :P

Medal of Extinction?

I like this one best, I think.  :)  Or maybe Medal of Extermination?
