So this "Next!" took a while, huh? I've been trying a lot of things in my diamond quest - trying to get a Vampyre through the Anomaly, trying to get enough luck for a Centurial Diamond run to do something other than stairdive with a combat knife and pray to never meet an enemy... but reading Icy's thread, as well as inspiring me, tempted me to the dark side - Angel of Overconfidence is a pathway to many badges some consider to be... unnatural. So I decided to try a Sereg Destroyer Diamond run - it starts you with a great rapid-fire weapon and pretty close to game-winning status already. Plus, when you need to keep the damage under 50, health isn't an issue...

This was pretty much the least eventful run imaginable - I met an arch-vile close up on level 1, shortly before grabbing 2 invulnerability globes. I gained several levels by enemy collateral damage while running, and I didn't really do much besides running and grabbing another invuln- my invulnerability started on level 1, ran through a couple of specials and an arachnotron cave and ended after a few volleys into Spidey, at which point I used the ancient art of "stay out of range like a coward and snipe with int2 until target dies" to finish the job. As you'll see in the message log, though, I did grab a tech mod that I didn't remember or bother to apply until close to the end.

I'll probably return someday and try a non-Sereg version of this, as it really feels like the least deserved diamond badge since the days when I earned Gatekeeper Diamond by melting through the walls with plasma - although considering I only played part of level 1 and part of Dis while vulnerable and still took 40 damage, and have never even obtained the untouchable badge, let alone cross, that might be a little ambitious. I guess next up are some platinums to get me to Marshal, and then begins the quest for diamonds, which will require some serious work on my skills in various areas such as stabbing things without getting stabbed, Phobos Anomaly nightmare tactics and a broad variety of general Nightmare skills. (Either that or going hardcore on Sereging...)
