[N!|AoMC|100%|YAFW] Veteran Angelic
« on: October 18, 2018, 07:00 »

Of all the Angelic's this is the one I always thought was within my grasp. I usually play a damage focused game (lots of SoB levels) but this time I went for a speed focused build. The initial idea was to get another Longinus Diamond (got it before in 0.9.9.6) but as I went through the levels everything clicked and I realised I was on track for another Angelic. I guess it's a little tacky using AoMC to get it but I think this is a good platform to aim for an Elite :-)

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

 897 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 834 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 10 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 31 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

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

There was a plasma shotgun in Deimos Lab but I got a sniper/power mod combo and chose to make a plasmatic combat shotgun instead. I thought it would make more sense because shells are easier to manage as an ammo source. After that I just rolled along - with guaranteed corpse disposal nightmare isn't that bad :-)

My first Longinus Diamond used the knife throwing technique but this time I wanted to do it properly. Between HR3, Fin3 and the ripper the AoD went down hard (although it wasn't damageless - took me a moment to work out the right rhythm to avoid getting hit).

Limbo was alright, felt easier than the Mortuary (first time I've finished it!). Helped a lot that I had some seriously big guns and corpse disposal at the ready.

I periodically ran out of plasma but never shells which, I think, validates my decision with the combat shotgun. Having a massively damaging melee option didn't hurt either :-)

And now I'm finally a full General :-)

very impressive run! you dont need to get conqueror to get this angelic, so i always skipped the mortuary and cathedral, but this definitely puts you in a good position to try it for the elite, especially if you weren't even aiming for the angelic on this run

Well - the intention was to do the cathedral from the start which helps :-) I had the Angelic in the back of my mind but I've had to abort on previous runs so I was just trying to keep things going. When I found the plasma shotgun in Deimos Lab I knew I could probably pull it off. Once I decided to go for the angelic I knew I pretty much had to do the mortuary (the RNG loves not giving me nukes when I want them) but I was happy to see Limbo instead. Btw: The Elite is much harder than this badge. No AoMC to make life easy! I'm back to the old 'constantly dying on level 3' routine...

Meh - it only took 21 hours apparently :-) Which did involve me leaving my laptop on overnight but, yeah, this takes forever!
