I was trying for CRI Diamond, and this was the first time I got as far as Io.  (A bit disappointed there's no badge for getting to Io in Nightmare;  Oh well...)  :P  Aside from being a little worryingly low on ammo, I was doing well, with some pretty nice equipment, up until I opened a door to be greeted by a quartet of naturally occurring exalted reavers with fire ability, and I guess all four of them must've hit me at once, because they did a lot more damage than I was expecting.  I should've healed or sought cover or something, but they were so perfectly positioned for my cold-enhanced shotgun that I couldn't resist just shooting them.  Whoops...

And while I'm here, why are there so many Diamond badges that require you to play masterless?  They might as well say you're required to not have fun.  :P  I sort of wonder...  what if the requirement instead said you have to kill everything at least once?  (Or a minimum number of first-time kills?)  Then you still get the interesting benefits of the master traits, while making for some interesting strategic planning as you figure out what route you take through the level.

IO L5 by a exalted reaver.
