[1.4f|U|Sc|AoB|YAAM] Quad Ghost
« on: July 31, 2022, 15:05 »

For no particular reason, I felt like playing an Angel of Berserk game with a Ghost build.  :)

Leaning into the Scout's stealthing ability was a very shaky strategy in the early game, and for a time, I was living med kit to med kit, and very uncertain if I'd be able to win.  The Shadow Blade that I found mid-Europa was a big help, letting me do triple damage with my stealth strikes, (and quadruple damage once I got Executioner) and getting the Demonblood effect from the Dark Cathedral helped considerably, and that was when I knew I had the game in the bag.

That was also around the time I found the armour with the "silent" perk, which helped me get more out of my stealthing.  I was using the melee amp I found in Frozen Temple (that gave a damage and guard boost) up until the end of Dante Inferno, where I couldn't resist switching it up for a utility amp that also had "silent," so my two silent perks, combined with Skilled 2, meant that for the last two levels, I was getting four stealth strikes per stealth, (if there were enough enemies present) and since Ghost 3 made my stealth cost 12, and I was getting 3 energy back per kill thanks to Energy Leech 3, I was able to break even for each of my stealths.  :)

I got the Medusa's Fang toward the end, which instantly kills damaged biological enemies at the cost of permanently reducing your health, and I almost got rid of it, figuring I didn't want my health reduced, until I realized that it only triggers the health reduction if you deal non-fatal damage...  and my quad damage from the Shadow Blade was pretty good at one-shotting everything, and once Soulstealer was leveled up with smaller enemies, it was able to one-shot pretty much everything too, so I don't think I ever actually activated the Medusa's Fang ability at all.

In the end, Harbinger didn't even see me coming.  I ran up to him while stealthed, whacked him for four stealth strikes, then stealthed again, and whacked him for four more stealth strikes.  He spent his last moments firing off his mortars blindly, and was dead without ever seeing his attacker.  :)
