Discussion / Hey y'all, it's been quiet.
« on: September 27, 2015, 16:59 »
Long time, no see.


How has everyone been doing?


When I first played doomRL, I was in my last year of high school.  I'm now a college graduate, and doomRL's been a huge amount of fun I've consistently come back to. Wanted to say, thank you for the hundreds of hours of good fun.  Helped me get through some rough times.

Hope everyone's doing well!

Discussion / I'm not figuring out the Apostle. :(
« on: October 25, 2013, 21:18 »
I can pick up DS almost every time I come across it, and I haven't had DS+Zerk Armor yet, but I just need a hint about the Apostle.

Does it require DS+Zerk Armor?  Is it findable in Ao100?  Ao666?  Is it.... PAST JC?  (It's not accessible by nuking JC, for sure.)

I just need a hint.  Been hunting for a while.

I was at 12 HP exactly.  What this means is that either Caco damage isn't 2d6 damage, or that TaN doesn't apply for the round in which armor is destroyed.

Which is true?

A fun and surprisingly easy run.  Took a total of three tries.  I forgot how easy ITYTD really is compared to the higher difficulties.

I feel that I could have completed this run without the chainsword (combat knife), assuming I could actually friggin zerk against Cybie.  What you don't see is the 2 bulk-modded red armors and phaseshift armor that he broke before I could kill him.  Very scary fight, with a medkit every 3 attacks.


Fist-only run is not uber-difficult just because of your low damage output (it's not that bad while zerking, I've accidentally killed knights after throwing a knife), but because zerk chance with fists is so darn extremely low.  The armor from zerk is the only thing that makes runs like these even possible.

Also, what special did I miss besides Wall? 

I avoided the wall because I wasn't sure if rockets on walls counted against Strongman.  Does it?

Fun run.  Done over the course of a vacation day, so a couple saves here and there.

I've been attempting H Conquerer for a while, going for Vet silver and preparing for what an Elite platinum would look like.  Arena was a standard level 3 Combat Shotty cornerfest, CC nearly killed me, surprisingly, and then the Wall was great fun.  I was rocketing Barons and I accidentally blasted two of them into melee range of me, so I panic-phased... directly onto the backpack.  Grabbed the missile launcher and proceeded to clean it out.  Got MVm shortly after and chainsawed my way through Hell Armory, using the launcher to kill a very annoying and uncooperative shambler.   I got a nano pack, and knew exactly what I had to do.  New Halls of Carnage was exciting as ever, with me actually racing the lava in order to find a demon that was hanging out in a corner, trying his hardest to break my YAAM.  Hellgate was a 2-BFG-shot slaughter followed by launchering the Brothers.  I nearly died in UC because I was meleeing skulls with a launcher, then upon realizing what I was doing I switched to my chainsaw and kicked AoD's ass. 

Grabbed the Scythe, went downstairs, destroyed a couple mancubi, and went to the City of Skulls, where I proceeded to FAIL FOREVER.  I farmed skulls for about 5 minutes, giving me a berserk that literally lasted for the rest of the game, and then proceeded to kill Agony, get the skulls, walk out with exactly ONE skull still alive.  I didn't pay attention because BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD and supreme confidence in an impending victory (and because I had decided to make a double chainsaw for funsies).  What did I learn?  ALWAYS CONFIRM BLUE!

Anyway, down to the Spider Lair and guaranteed plasteel boots.  I ended up having to BFG a lot of the spiders, since they hurt a ton even in zerk mode.  (Probably one of the few things that could kill me in Scythe-permazerk mode, honestly.)  I then created Gravity Boots.

These boots broke the game.  Period.  .2sec/move, combined with zerk, meant I was taking 10 to 12 turns every time a former human wanted to move.  Combine that with phase armor (that I, sadly, couldn't find an agi mod for), and I was taking 6 turns for every lost soul turn, and 8 for every vile turn.  Things would only really attack me when I attacked, and Finesse 3 made even that take far less time. 

So yeah, enter vaults, kill 8 mancubi before 1 can even shoot at me, take a grand total of 0 damage with green armor, and then go down to the mortuary to really see how broken fast I was. 

I killed a vile before anything had a chance to move, blew up half the arena to kill another 3 viles with a fire skull, turned another third of the arena into Zerker food, then, after murdering everything, healed from 200% to 200% using the blood skull.  Grabbed a couple mods, learned I could mod tactical crap and phaseshift crap, made the BFG ridiculous (though why bother?  Not like I used it), and continued on.

The Lava Pits confirmed what I believed about gravity boots being totally, completely and utterly broken.  I only took damage from the lava once every 4 steps, and literally ran from monster to monster, killing it to get back to full hp, and didn't even take lava damage.  I decided for funsies to pick up every enviro-suit and take them to Cybie just because I could.  Not like Lava hurt a lot, anyway; 1 damage every 4 moves is nothing.  I looked at viles trying to hit me, and noted that when they flamed, it was four squares behind my movements.  The message that said "You need to taste blood!" would only pop up every 4 movements. 

Then, I dropped a nuke, and tested exactly how fast I could run.  While moving, TWENTY moves was one second.  TWENTY.  I could run past a Baron without him having a chance to shoot at me.  Literally, twenty times his speed.  I had to dance for 400 moves to get the nuke to explode.  Lava element seemed to last forever.  Then I finally went down to see JC.  He took one step forward, and in that time, I crossed the entire arena and attacked him twice.   He had a chance to attack, which pinged me for exactly 1 damage, then I ate him to heal for 3.  I wish I had no-damage killed him; maybe there's a medal for it?



Let me put it somewhat poetically:
As I donned the gravitic plasteel boots and Phaseshift armor, time slowed to a near-halt.  Dust that I kicked up seemed to take minutes to settle.  When I attacked with my Scythe, it was like slicing up statues.  When monsters attacked me, their movements were so slow that it felt like they were tapping me lightly.  Even bullets and plasma, previously instant and painful, became nothing to my berserker might.  Arch-viles would take several seconds to flame me, and I could completely side-step their entire attack with ease.  Mancubi appeared nearly stationary; even lost souls, the fastest of the demonic forces, were as slow as turtles compared to me.  If I faced a large group, as I did in the Mortuary, it would appear as though my foes took turns to shoot at me; one or two out of a group of 20, at the most, would fire.  Viles had no chance to amass large forces;  I could destroy them before they had a chance to react.  The very elements themselves could not catch me;  I ran so fast that lava had no chance to transfer its heat to me, and acid could only take the barest licks at my heels.  I felt as though I could outrun an exploding barrel or a homing rocket.  I ran so fast that I outran my own emotions, my lust for blood only occasionally ringing in my head.  I was a dervish, a hurricane of death and destruction, and no force in Hell could stop me. 

Now imagine if I had gotten levels in Hellrunner and Dodgemaster.  Hoo boy.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 1 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Got the DS!  Most AoBs lose at floor 3.  If I get to Chained Court, I feel safe.  Getting to AoD means I win.  Then, I found the DS.  Experimented with a couple possibilities, and figured it out!

Once I had it, I was immortal to anything but stupidity.  So, I stupidly took on the Mortuary.  Alt-fire and taking 1 damage from anything let me win. 

Then I took on Cybie.  He did 1 damage with anything; I coulda sat there for a while.  I mean, look; he hit me three times, now look at my ending HP.  Totally imba!

I also saw the new level types;  very nice, though the time limit's long enough to not worry about.

I was going for YAAM, but I made a mistake somewhere. =(

And I wasted them, too.  I'm so mad that I died; it was my own stupidity and overconfidence at having a weapon that dealt, you know, 10d12 at close range, and would ignore armor very soon.

So this was my first game in 0.9.9.2, and I was apparently either really lucky, or ITYTD had some adjustments.  I found both miniguns on the same floor, couldn't for the life of me find the Mortuary stairs (which ruined Conquerer and explorer D:)

But yeah, two miniguns, a shockwave pack, nuclear plasma rifle, onyx armor, some item called lava element (New to me, never got to use it), Arena Master's Staff, and I still managed to finish the game by being ultra-overprepared.  ITYTD really is easy mode. v.v

And, just like when I used to play, I still don't know how not to kill every damn thing I see.  I need to play more AoPc, or I'll never be able to win an AoB. x.x

Any advice on which bonus areas you all now think are worth the cost?  Unless the mortuary got a nerf/rewards got a buff, it's still probably not worth it.  Spider's Lair is doable, and the plasma is always nice.  What about the new Chained Court and Lava Pits?  Have the Vaults been changed?
Oh well, back to AoPc speedruns!

I came down the stairs on the topright box, and burnt through all of my medikits being pushed around by shotguns.  That, and the previous floor had a shotgun guy in a narrow corridor that I took huge damage from. 

I guess I don't like how luck-based shotgun guys make AoB.  </rage>

Is it true that AoB has been made easier?  And what do I do in situations like these?

I totally won.  Bullcrap. =(

And I stood around, wondering what to do for like 15 minutes, so I missed compet-n by a bit too. D=

Not a single award for my victory!

As a side-note, I dodged every rocket he shot.  Dodgemaster ftw.

EDIT: It was on H?  I didn't even notice.  Silly me.

What do you do when you run out of ammo?

Run right up to the big guy and RIP AND TEAR.  I'm so glad I put a point into Brute after finding the Cleaver, it ended up winning the game for me.

That, and finding an invincibility orb next to the Mortuary Stairs.  3 BFG shots cleared one side of the mortuary, giving me enough time to look for the nuclear BFG to get a full AoH win.  Unfortunately, there was no nuclear BFG on the side I ran to, and the other side of the map was quickly filling with monsters, so I just grabbed 2 sets of red armor, several weapons and mods and kits, and went for Cybie on the very next floor.

Hit Cybie with the BFG 3 times, emptied my plasma rifle into him, (Does Cybie even take damage from rockets?  I wasn't about to risk finding out, so...) then I ran out of ammo.  Cybie seemed too heavily armored for the shotty to be useful, and I wasn't sure about rockets, so my last choice?  Run right up and RIP AND ****ING TEAR.  Heck yes, I ripped, I tore, and if I hadn't killed it the turn I had (or the next, I guess), it was going to stomp me into the ground.  But alas, I shoved the Butcher's Cleaver into its guts, RIPPED AND TORE THEM, and left him a bloody heap on the ground.

Best non-intentional melee kill ever.
