Too bad you are wrong.
I'm not saying that they are bad. They are just worse than others. Or I don't know how to use them right (which is likely). I suppose killing things before they can hurt you is better protection than some situational resistance. I looked through PMs and nearly all technicians are sharpshooter or malicious blades. One scavenger in Ao100.
How am I supposed to use MB? Stack it with nanofiber red armor and tank Mancubi? Most dangerous enemies are plasma anyway.

Discussion / Re: Is Angel of marksmanship challenge really easy?
« on: February 08, 2013, 00:31 »
I did Marksman and Berserk on HNTR, they are really not too hard. Compared to HMP. Traits make a lot of difference. I recommend Sharpshooter and Vampire respectively.

With Marksman you have it easy early, thanks to huge SoG bonuses.

With Berserk it is somewhat hard at first. But if you do a lot of door camping it's not imposible. Use that "run" button for waiting, I moved it from "," to "insert" (number keyboard zero) for easy access. It will skip lots of turns, but will stop as soon as you see enemy.
And later you get guaranteed good weapon progression (knife, chainsaw and spear/scythe) that let you kill any non-boss under a second. Bossess - under five seconds.

First I make sure that I have enough fire rate with shotguns to hold off Barons in the Wall. That is, at least Finess*2 + Reloader (or some mod packs and shell box)
Then it depends on build, but I don't know how to beat Cathedral without at least Berserk, so, berserk. Juggler is always good, especially with melee.
My favorite builds are Vampyre, Sharpshooter and Shottyhead.
Gear - I usually make "tactical" everything. Boots, armor, shotgun.

Still don't have reliable strategy for Mortuary. I know running for nuclear  BFG helps at prolonged sieges, as well as having nuclear plasma rifle, as well as clearing some patchess with skulls. And that worst case, I can do four Azrael blasts to kill all Viles, at a cost of 20 maximum health. But either way, above HNTR I end either dead (rarely) or nearly out of resources, so I have to do reast of the game with nuclear weapon, melee and handful of remaining ammo/medpacks.

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoMr|92%|YAVP] Technicians are awesome (with pistols)
« on: February 07, 2013, 13:43 »
Hello, all, my first post, and my first Angel post mortem:) Wanted to try if I can manage without magic powers of shotguns.
Never found any good pistol, of cause, so I had to make one myself. Storm Bolter is awesome. Sadly, it can't be upgraded further:(
But now I think, may be simple T3P2 pistols can be better. About same amount of bullets per second (with SoG<5), but 4 more damage per bullet. Smaller magazine, though, but may be it can be "fixed" with ammo chain? I heard ammo chains (and may be other ammo boxes?) can reduce firing time, but Wiki says nothing about it. Shell box definitely makes reloading shotgun faster, but by how much?
Technicians special abilitias are all very handy. Being able to heal onself in the heat of battle without losing most of that health while you doing it is great. And level map showing all monsters makes level trivial. Too bad master traits are not very good. Except sharpshooter, that is.
