I thought for AoLT I should use a melee build, I used Vampyre back in DoomRL due to the combo of not needing ammo and another healing source, but I was pointed to Blademaster here due to the nice defensive bonuses. Worked out better, I think!

Was tricky deciding which guns to have before melee got going, I'll admit.

Stressed a bit about mods since they were kind of important but I found what I picked worked well.

Sometimes it seemed a bit strange when I seemed to get or not get my defensive bonuses but generally I was blazing through things once I had a pair of katanas!

I somehow got two special levels on Europa. I wanted to go to CRI Amory for all the loot... But there was only one Red Keycard. >:( Will note not to go there again unless I use a stash already.

First time visiting Shattered Abyss and I one-shot the Swordmaster! The Demonic Sword might not be compatible with dual-wielding but Frenzy and a higher Vampiric rating gave it niche uses... Still mostly stuck with my katanas though.

I finally got 100% kills, I thought I might've gotten screwed over by a minor enemy still being alive when I finished the Summoner but it seems not!

Nice win!  :)

I've found that Vampyre hasn't been as strong a contender as it was back in DRL, though it's possible I'm just not using it right or something.  (This game has some very different strategizing to it)  One thing I think is a must in these latest versions for melee games is some kind of bleeding protection, since the late game melee enemies' bleeding attacks hurt a lot.  Looks like you made do without it, though.  Did the Reavers and Kerberos's give you trouble?

I found Scout wit Assasinate is also very useful in doing the AoLt as once it gets going the enemy will have a hard time landing a hit on you and you ca one-shot them most of the time.

I guess I did, avoid the hits probably helped a lot. :P

Honestly, I didn't make a connection of which enemy types actually threatened me, some did land some heavy hits but I didn't even really pay attention to what kind of enemy... Outside of robots so I knew not to try walking into them.

I was considering that one too. I might give it a try another time.
