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

I got lucky with the first 2 levels - nice layouts and I was able to farm a few hundred sergeants on level 2. Had a bad moment on level 1 when I got caught by a Mancubus/Baron tag team. I'd been camping so they were respawning faster than I could kill them! Luckily I managed to make to the level exit... Level 2 was better and left as my kill count hit 1000 - I thought that would be enough to carry me through :-) Level 3 had a great layout and an invulnerability sphere next to the stairs. I was doing really well when I got caught between a Mancubus and a Hell Knight, again! This time I was in a tight spot and what saved my bacon was a hastily slammed door (breaking line of sight with the Mancubus), an env suit and a mad dash to the invulnerability. I just made it! My kill count was good so I basically stair dived from there. Level 7 spawned me right next to a Mancubus Vile pack. Luckily I had a spare env suit and the stairs weren't too far...

I used the Tormuse Method (check out his Everyman Angelic - it's required viewing!) to take down the Spider Mastermind and it worked like a charm!

I get why everyone says this is the easiest Angelic to get - just takes a bit of luck and persistence. I had a great run yesterday when I found a plasma shotgun - was going amazingly until I ran out of ammo on level 6. Oh well - got it today!

The "Tormuse Method."  I love it!  :D  Are you able to reproduce it at will?  I was in a state of mad panic, flying by the seat of my pants when I came up with that.  :P

Well, I started off at the left side of the map and ended up dancing around the leftmost and second pillar at the bottom. I was being really careful only taking shots when I knew she couldn't fire back. I was safe - HR2 and Int2 pretty much guarantee a Masterminds Brain but it was taking forever. After a while I checked and she was only 'scratched' so I thought, what the heck, maybe the 'Tormuse Method' would work :-)

I headed to the top of the map and set things up exactly as you did. Int2 let me monitor her movements - it looked pretty random in the beginning but she consistently ended up in the firing line. There was one moment when it looked like she might escape, something like this:

.............
......####.@.
......####...
......####...
......####...
.....*.......

It only happened once and she moved back down but it was a little worrying. At some point though the random movements stopped and she basically just kept alternating between being in the firing line and one step away. All in all it worked like a charm - she went down pretty quickly once I got going.

That video of yours is ridiculously awesome (I've watched it twice)! That bit at the end where you think your way through to a win has an almost mythic quality. Bet the documentary 'The Road to Everyman Angelic' would be fun to watch :-) (The interview with the Spider Mastermind at the end would be the best: you'd have a lot of hellspeak and a translator saying something like:
"Look, the dude had no traits and a weapon that did no damage and no hitpoints. Should've been just another day at the office. I don't know what happened!"
