-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 24 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 19 of those were killed.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 killed the bitch and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

After about five years of not touching this, I finally gathered enough strength, nostalgia and will to ever delve into a procedurally generated Hell. First, completing Doom 1 and Doom 2 on UV with no saves mid-level. Then I remembered, "Hey, there's a Doom game that wants you to do like that!".

I really wonder how do people ever manage damageless kills in melee, esp on Hell Arena. Every attempt I try either gets me eaten, or I lose all my armor and medkits and run further on whatever I collect as Arena reward. This run I was heavily using knife throwing on Arena, three seemed to be about the right number to wield. Still got hit into the red before wrecking the last cacodemon, and it was even with the lucky red armor I found on level 2 in a vault with some lost souls.

Really, I don't remember the game giving me as many uniques before! My first win was a normal HNTR with as much as 6 uniques, this time it was three, and 4 times I got invulnerability to use a nuke, which I really planned for only at the gates of Dis, getting two in a row. Also I got blessed with quite a decent number of packs, including an onyx, so I rushed WK2 right after getting master trait. Still even a double chainsaw loses against UC's weapons... except for the sound, of course. BRRRRZZZZZZZZ!

The funniest thing in the run happened at Limbo, where I have already arrived with OP red armor. Any hit off a Vile triggers berserk, then I only get 1 damage from any single source (probably excluding lava), and each my move made a lot of enemies fly all sides just because a lot of mancubi were around, as well as other AoE shooting stuffs. So, I walk, they fly, I walk, they fly again, if I'm in luck, a corpse gets destroyed in crossfire, or a baron of hell, or at least an imp. I like fried mancubus smell, but I don't like having to suffer when they toss themselves into lava from their own blasts against my FACE! Had to run over lava to put down a vile tossed there like that, they don't frikking die in there.

Hmm... probably I would punch barrels just to get tossed into berserk state...

PS: Never *drop* a nuke into the lava, USE it there if you're invulnerable - a mere note to self. Good thing I've got two.

Welcome back - that's a fairly impressive first return run there. I don't believe I've ever attempted that many special levels with a melee build - certainly not as successfully as you've just done. Well played.

Wow, everything but the Wall!  :o  Impressive!  :)  Also, welcome back!  :D

I really wonder how do people ever manage damageless kills in melee, esp on Hell Arena.

I'm pretty sure it isn't possible, except maybe at high levels with Blademaster, where you can kill your enemies in minimal time.  (Using knife-throwing could be an interesting strategy, though it would probably be long and tedious...  which, come to think of it, might be right up my alley)  :P  I know 2Dev claimed to be able to do this kind of thing damageless, but my current prevailing theory about him is that he found a way to alter the game so that Doomguy is always invulnerable.  (I'm not kidding; it's the only theory that makes any sense)

That's just weird - I haven't played for 5 years either and picked up again this last week! Maybe there's something in the air?

Thanks :) Yep, how to get through The Wall on AoB if you don't have a phase AND a homing phase on yourself? You don't have plasmatic melee weapons, or do you? Well, Unholy Cathedral aside, as you first get to The Wall then to UC. Also I want Hell cleared in ALL my games (which sometimes set me off like the next run where I missed a lost soul that flew waaay over to the lava in Halls of Carnage, and missed me YAAM), so getting nothing off The Wall would just hurt. (And I only had a homing phase that time)

@llama Yep there should be something, definitely.

congrats on the successful run! vampyre is my favorite build to do conqueror runs in standard HMP/UV games

i dont know if you can cut through the wall with any melee weapons. subtle knife maybe? i've never tried it but obviously can't be reliably counted on

Yep, just tried getting an Azrael's Scythe and trying to make a dent in *a* wall (somewhere in Hell) - no dice. So, will have to resort to phasing when it'll be another time to tackle The Wall without being able to use a rocket launcher. But, Subtle Knife is not just "plasma", it's "BFG plasma", so maaaybe it is *the* key to The Wall. (Nice key it would be, hehe)
