Finished this run a few days ago, might as well make a forum thread now.

I fully admit that I used the wiki to tell me the assembly for nanomanufacture ammo, along with a bunch of other info. Without two infinite-ammo guns this run would have been a lot harder.

Most notable bit of good RNG was getting the Enviroboots on level 20. Total fluid immunity takes a lot of the sting out of Ao100, though I kept my modded plasteel boots for speed. None of the other uniques I found were even worth carrying. The most amusing RNG was when I found the Nuclear BFG on two levels in a row, long after it would be useful.

I was really frustrated when I did the math around level 80 and realized it was impossible to hit level 25 and get the medal for that; the most optimistic estimate put me midway through level 24 despite killing almost everything before that point. So I said screw it and just stairdived for the last 15 levels or so. I guess if I want that medal I have to either do it on nightmare or play 666, neither of which sound like a good use of time.

 Ooh, UV Ao100, another one of my favorites... nice work.  You're right about the Enviroboots... not having to worry about terrain makes things a lot simpler.

Pretty nice kill percentage too... were you at 100% before you realized you had an XP problem?

You're right that nightmare or 666 are the only viable ways to reach level 25... Ao100 nightmare isn't too terrible as far as dianonds go, so now that you've got one nightmare win under your belt you should at least give Centurial and Dervis some thought when you're considering your next challenges.

I didn't have 100% before then, no. I never intended to go for 100%, but even if I did level 24 completely kicked my butt and I had to flee with a homing phase device (I know the exact level number because it was a "you're being targeted" level--I ended up with three archviles and a bunch of other strong enemies surrounding me because every time I tried to fall back to a better position I ran into more enemies). I also skipped a few out-of-the-way enemies in some other levels.
