Finally a decent start on N! Ao100, last ten or so attempts got me screwed at L3 or below, and two lasted to L8 and L12. This round got me blessed with this creepy vault:

You need to taste blood!

There was a VERY handy berserk pack pretty close to those cacos, so I wasn't in a real danger whacking them with that knife. And having level 4 before L3 was very helpful towards survival. Gift dropping on formers was the way to retain 100% kills up until I was able to attack from distance with enough chance to hit, and could finally rely on my gatling and tac shotty to land corpses right on doors, or into the acid/lava, then a set of cerberus boots were assembled to screw that lava, and BAM "There's something very valuable here" on level 34 yielded an Acid Spitter. Of course that level had no acid, but I went to keep the gun, and boy was it fun when I have finally started salivating all over the floor. BBVV? MMVV? RRVV? Hey have a SPLASH, good riddance! Of course it didn't last for real long, as BBs and nightmare everythings started appearing, yet while the majority of enemies were "normal", and actually while there was at least one happy former, I was still relying on ordinary weapons to do the job.

But Nightmare wouldn't be Nightmare without stair traps. Level 58 met me with two MMVV at sight distance and a happy revenant to blow a wall - KABLAM, you can run but you can't hide, that sort of things, in the end I had to abandon YAAM with this screen:

missile hits the nightmare imp. The nightmare imp dies. There are stairs

That envirosuit was used on the previous level prior to me exiting for rumored extra protection - quite possibly it saved my butt over there. Not for long though, level 61 had me up against a corner with BBVV and a ton of arachnotrons covering the perimeter. I tried to rocket jump away into what happened to be a literal swarm of hV. And just look at that grave... the right part of the level is completely empty.

PS: archvile complexes are a kind of relaxation from having to control N! rezzing - they never stand back up. And I've got three. The NM arach cave was under invulnerability, so no biggie, NM demons actually too. But zero BFGs really hurt.
