 205 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 181 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 14 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

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

After getting so close to winning AoB as a Vampyre Marine a few times and then trying some more as a Blademaster Scout (never getting that far), i gave the former another shot.

I was lucky with getting a Nano AND Onyx mod! I don't know if Powered Red Armor and Lava Boots were the best of use them strictly speaking but both of those served me VERY well this run, actually. Between the Power Armor and the Nanofiber Red I put together earlier, I didn't have to worry about Armor, throwing out a whole boatload of Blues and Greens, I did hang onto the Lava Armor I found as a backup though. Meanwhile, the Lava Boots saved me a lot of hassle in later levels without needing to worry about envirosuits.

I was practically choking on Bulk and Agility mods that I didn't need, I wasted some of the latter trying to make a second set of Tactical Boots and this time A-mod them, but then realised I only had Whizkid 1. At least that didn't cost me anything.

Conversely I was starved for Power mods, it took me WAY longer than it should have to put together my Ripper...

Funnily enough, I discovered that the Longinus Spear + Angelic Armor set seemed to "count" with the former in the prepared slot instead, which is interesting (and helpful!). The AA seemed weirdly fragile in terms of durability though.

I found an Invulnerability Globe close enough to Dis to not need my Lava Element there, so I got to use it on JC! If I held onto the extra nuke I stumbled onto I could've nuked him too but he went down easily anyway.

I definitely got very lucky but in general it seemed pretty simple once I got going even though it was tough at the start, which I guess is how melee builds tend to go. Very happy in any case!

EDIT: Fixed the title.

Good job on recovering from your previous loss... and interesting discovery about Longinus in the prepared slot - I don't recall ever hearing about that one before.

What happened to the 3 enemies you missed? Really close to YAAM there... and you are entitled to YAFW - instead of a mere YAVP - for the JC kill ;)

Also, which special levels did you skip? And which did you fail to complete? Pretty close to Conqueror, there, too.

Oh yeah, fixed the title now.

I noped out of at least some levels early for my own safety, or just not wanting to hunt down an enemy in an annoying place. At least, I think that's it.

I skipped Hell's Arena (kinda painful as a low-level melee-locked character), The Wall/Containment Area (Nothing to punch through with) and The Vaults (no Staff because no Arena). Don't quite remember which ones I didn't complete, I'm afraid.

EDIT: Looking back through my History, Halls of Carnage is the only one without the completion quip, so I guess that was the one I didn't fully clear. I don't know why.
