[U|AoB+AoLT|90%|YAFW] A bit of light malice
« on: December 26, 2021, 16:52 »

For no particular reason, I decided to play DoomRL the other day, to see if I could do a melee only game with a Malicious Blades build.  I also combined it with AoLT for the speed boost, reasoning that a melee build won't need much inventory space for weapons/ammo.

Once I got MB, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the game, but getting there was quite a chore.  While MB is considered a melee trait, it really is best suited to a hybrid build, due to the lack of berserker trait.  Still, somehow, I made it work by focusing on the enemies I could kill relatively easily without taking too much damage, and stretching berserk packs and invulnerability spheres as much as I could, and simply avoiding a lot of enemies, and avoiding Hell's Arena altogether.

I turned the red armour from Phobos Anomaly into nanofibre armour, which I used up until Deimos Lab, where I got an onyx pack as a reward, which I ended up putting on a suit of blue armour for the plasma protection.  Those two levels of Whizkid I got ended up being solely for modding the armour;  I would have liked to dual-wield two power-modded chainswords, but it didn't end up being convenient to do so, and the Longinus Spear turned out to be a good enough choice anyway.

I was considering skipping Spider's Lair, since MB's protections don't include plasma damage, but a lucky nuke and invulnerability made me change my mind.  :)  I still had to break down two walls between the invulnerability and the SL entrance, which I did by throwing a couple of combat knives that were lying around at napalm barrels.

Limbo felt like a big mistake that nearly got me killed, since enemies were reviving faster than I could deal with, and I just made a run for the exit, though I was able to pick up the nuclear BFG on the way out.

I probably would've skipped Lava Pits if it generated, but I lucked into getting Mount Erebus, and there were two berserk packs next to the stairs for it, so I was able to just run across the lava, only losing about 27% health in the process, enabling me to get a full win.  (Though there was an invulnerability next to the final stairs, so I didn't end up using the lava element anyway)  :P

Yay!  :D

 1741 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1364 of those were killed.
 8 of those were killed by something unknown.
 189 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 60 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 120 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 6 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 83 killed the bitch and survived.
 31 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Ah nukes+invuln... now I remember what I miss in JH from DRL!  Karmic payback to those pesky mobs that sniped me from afar...

Wait, this is DRL here.  Great win for you!
