[0.9.6|N!|AoLT|Ma|YAVP] Lightfoot Diamond Badge! :D
« on: January 07, 2021, 15:19 »

I've been alternating between various challenges lately, trying for a number of Diamond badges, and finally got Lightfoot Diamond with my classic favourite Vampyre build!  :D

I largely relied on ranged weapons for early to mid game, carried a lot by the lucky find of the 7.62 CRI SMG, and then somewhere around Io, I switched to melee almost exclusively after I got the AV3 Katana from the weapon terminal in Tyre Outpost.  The "Exalted Bane" upgrade seemed fitting for a Nightmare game.  :)  (And I like the little nod to Nethack in the name)  :D  The Momentum upgrade on that weapon combined with the Kinetic upgrade on the armour meant that higher dodge bonuses meant higher damage and protection, which perfectly suited AoLT, where you get a natural speed boost, which I enhanced with Hellrunner, Swift, Danger Monitor, and Running.  :)

In a previous run, I found out the hard way that bleeding protection is now extra important for melee builds, because of the extra stackable bleedings that late game enemies give you.  :|  (And I also learned in this run that you need a power mod for bleeding protection instead of a bulk mod, like in previous versions;  that was a waste of a tech terminal)  :|

Not much else to say except that I noticed a couple of bugs.  The Tech Monitor ability says it "increases all repair received by 50%" but when I used the "repair armour" feature of a tech station, it increased it by the regular amount.  (Using multi-tools got the bonus, though...  and I was pleased to find that it affected both my helmet and body armour;  wasn't sure if it would, from the description)  :)  Also, the mortem still isn't displaying the trait order properly;  probably owing to me getting too many traits.  (All those Nightmare re-kills)  :P

Most impressive! I've got my eyes on this one, but with a totally different build!
Nice work! I'll take note of the bleeding protection point, I hadn't noticed it myself.

Note that I've been playing the bleeding-edge Beta version, so it's possible that some details are different from the "public" version.  It's easy to lose track of what comes from what version.
