[U|100%|YAFW] Elite Platinum
« on: August 22, 2018, 05:45 »

My first conqueror medal! The worst part of getting this badge is Phobos Labs. That level tripped me up everytime. I was really happy to see the Military Base this time - it's so much easier it's not funny.

 557 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 506 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 10 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 25 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 15 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 9 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

I almost got this badge yesterday when I messed it up by accidentally using a homing phase in Phobos Lab - I was stuck and couldn't complete the level. I kept going but, as I suspected, it didn't count as a proper level completion. Sigh. The MVP for the Mortuary was the super shotgun. That thing is amazing - I cleared the level without too much trouble. I had two shell boxes which really helped as well. Also I was extremely lucky to find two onyx mods which allowed me to try the lava boots for the first time which also made a huge difference. The Lava Pits were a formality really.

All in all this was a blast. Some of the most fun I've had in doomrl. Three platinums in about a week - I'm feeling ready to take on some diamonds! Although... I probably need to get back to work... (looks guilty)

Grats with a conqueror! And yes, I find out I am less inclined to work once I've got back to DoomRL :)

I wonder though, how does super shotty help in Mortuary? Does it just help knocking them back, or viles actually die from it? Frankly with MVm I'd rather run at them and go KIYAAAH while everything gets hurt in the crossfire.

congrats on the run, phobos lab is definitely super hard with a vampire build on UV. if you can splash damage the nightmare demons and get them to come out into the acid its not too bad but can be tricky lining up proper shots, and if you screw up they're way faster than you

Both! I used a strategy khiijol suggested - I made a mad dash to the right using the skulls I got from agony elemental to clean things up. I whacked everything in sight with the scythe and got the nuclear BFG. As I moved leftwards I found there were a lot of formers and arachnotrons spread out just enough to do an annoying amount of damage. My best Mortuary runs always seem to involve a big shotgun (a Jackhammer was responsible for my first ever Mortuary clearance) so I switched and everything just became easy. It's like there's a massive force field pushing all the monsters away from you. Plus - the super shotgun does between 16 and 64 damage so things tend to die :-) I didn't even  need the BFG!

And how! My first attempt I was so overconfident I got my ass handed to me at the door. On another try just after I triggered the trap I got surrounded and chewed to bits almost instantly :-(  Those things scare me...

One bad thing is that when trap triggers, your envirosuit gets disabled at once, and there are too many demons to tackle on such small ground even with them getting hurt in acid, which nightmare demons are immune to, anyway. I'm thinking about a rocket jump out of that trap back into the nukage THEN use an envirosuit. I wonder though, how can an AoHu pass there... he'd get blown up with plain shotguns as they see you in an instant.

I had to take a step away from my laptop to 'recover' after that incident and realised that this was exactly what I should've done. Sigh...

I've successfully used a phase to get past the trap, might be the only way for a AoHu game...

They're not immune.  They just have a lot of hp, so it takes them a *long* time to die.

I'm thinking about a rocket jump out of that trap...

Oh, hey!  That's not a bad idea!  Rocket jump to the left from the last square of acid so you avoid having the Sergeants knock you back into the acid.  The envirosuit provides fire protection, so you'll take less damage from the rocket jump!  (And if you're playing AoHu, you'll have red armour which will provide additional fire protection and make it perfectly survivable)

Ohh, perhaps I've forgot that bit. This makes it a lil easier to plan vs N! UC... and allows trying N! lab in fact.

Frankly I was thinking about rocketjumping back into the acid right after triggering the trap, then using second envirosuit to avoid stupid death, and there's a chance you land on a square where shotgunners were, so you won't even get harmed by the acid, then pick at demons with shotgun from the distance, then whack the shotgunners.
