[1.2d|N!|Te|YASD] Explored a little too far
« on: March 11, 2022, 22:53 »

So I wanted to get the CRI and Jovisec Diamond badges for winning on Nightmare difficulty masterless as an explorer, and I decided to try playing as a technician, since I have the fewest victories with that class.  Ultimately, I failed, I'd say mostly due to trying to complete the Dante Inferno special level, even though (as I found out from Kornel after the fact) it wasn't actually necessary to do so.  (Oops!)

The run was carried by finding "Vengeance," a unique hunter rifle with a significant damage boost, plus incremental critical chance boosts from consecutive shots without reloading, which was later helped by armour with "loading feed," so I didn't have to manually reload it, so it permanently kept the critical bonus maxed out, consistently doing quadruple+ damage with each shot.  (I was slightly disappointed to discover that there's a cap on how high the critical bonus can go;  I half expected it to keep climbing into the thousands of percent, until I could one-shot anything;  oh well...)  :P

I recorded the whole run, which you can watch at the following links.

Part 1 - Callisto

Part 2 - Europa

Part 3 - Io

Part 4 - Dante

The recordings mostly speak for themselves, so I can't think what else to comment on.  The only other really notable decision I made along the way was getting rid of the Ravager's Heart relic at the end of Io.  I have no idea whether or not that was the right decision, but considering that I ran out of health items at the end, maybe it was a mistake?  Who knows?
