Jupiter Hell > Post Mortem


(1/3) > >>

So my first full win on Nightmare. I used a Marine with the "Survivalist" master trait, which saved my butt exactly twice in the run. Ironman was really helpful, as the higher your total HP, the higher your HP's are restored on Survivalist.

A little luck here and there, mostly with the drops. Things really fell into place.

Having found "Avalanche," in the Containment area on Europa, this made a massive difference. It meant that I could carry no ammo, and could fill those slots up with medical items, and grenades. (Avalanche is a super special plasma gun.)I also found Duramesh scout armor, which is indestructible. Also very useful on a run like this. I had the CRI bio launcher also, which allowed me to deal with those pesky medusas. By shooting a medusa with a rocket that releases a ball of toxin cloud, it broke line of sight, as well as damaging the medusas, so I could just fire one or two of those into the medusa's path, and they would just get disoriented and die.

The cryoreaver's claw was great too. Between that slowing enemies with chill, and maxxed out hellrunner, I was able to avoid most of those run-ending "open-a-door-and-there-is-three-exalted-cryoreavers" scenarios. the Jackhammer was very useful midgame, but wasn't used at all once I hit Dante.

Anyway, a very pleasing win.  Perhaps not as hard as some challenges, but I am still pretty happy with it.

Thanks for a great roguelike. :)

No worries!  I fixed it for you!  The trick was to use "mortem" tags.

Great win you've got there on N!.  I'm still glacially making my way to playing on N!... but it's tough given my playstyle and general inattentiveness.  =)

Thanks thelaptop. Much appreciated for fixing my post and for the encouragement.

You mention inattentiveness. I go off on these trains of thought while playing and get myself killed regularly. Or else, I tend to be way too conservative with my health use. "Yeah I have 15 hp and 5 medikits, but I might need them later and I can dodge these guys shooting at me and wait until I find a health orb."

Nek minit...

"Dammit one of those zombie grunts shot me."

Hey, congrats on your win!  :D  I have yet to win a Nightmare game of the new version so far.  (Though that's partly because I've mostly been playing Apocalypse difficulty)  :P  I did face the Harbinger during Beta-testing, though, so I know he's pretty tough.  Rather curious that he doesn't show up in the list of enemies killed.  Is that a bug?  (Now that I look at my old beta-testing mortem, he didn't show up there either;  oops!)

Wait... Apocalypse difficulty? What on the flat is that?

Thanks for the reply Torm, appreciated that someone of your skills would behold my humble attempts, which is 99%persistence and 1% talent. :)

I was lucky to get a unique (green( assault rifle, as well as indestructible armor, and with Survivalist I still died twice during the run. But hey, a win is a win. Hope you are well, and looking forward to whatever crazy tricks you figure out.
