Nightmare! / [N!|91%|YAUW] failed 100% attempt
« on: May 26, 2012, 20:50 »
Attempted to get a 100% killrate, then Dragonslayer spawned in UC, and this was the first time ever I've managed to wield it as well. However after this I realised I had no idea how to get a reliable 100% (corpse-clearing) rate with a melee weapon, let alone Dragonslayer, even if it's possible I have no experience with this and the corresponding armor artefact, so I opted for a minimal damage run instead (had already taken some damage including UC), stocking up on phase devices and enviropacks as much as I could.
After getting the Berserker Armor from the Mortuary, 100% would've seemed even farther away anyway, Nightmare Demons were everywhere, I couldn't find a limit to their numbers and corpse-clearing was a total non-factor.
Finding nukes also became a priority as I realised that I didn't know how to overload nuclear weapons while wielding the Dragonslayer.
The Apostle was also much more resilient than I expected (3 strikes with the Dragonslayer and he was still smiling).

This took quite a while, made as a precusor to AoB. I'm pretty convinced that a N! YAAM AoB isn't going to be possible with the trouble I had here, using knockback to clear up, when my only source of knockback in AoB is really weak.

Level 1: Quick & easy.

Level 2: Horizontal river right through the middle, so very easy too.

Hell's Arena: This seemed much harder than it is with a chaingun. Maybe someone could write a guide on clearing it with a shotgun? (as an extension to the existing shotty guide for UV).
Anyway, it was done, eventually, with lots of corpse stacking.

Level 3: Had to knockback enemies -into- doorways. Killing enemies with fists is an option but at 50% hitchance I'd give it a miss in general. Imps & Hellknights "helped" out with corpse destroying.

Level 4 & 5 and onwards: Acid Barrels = Portable acid baths, very helpful.

Chained Court: Began Supercharged to 200%, with Green Armor (100%) and some extra berserk. Killed the Arena Master by shooting him up against a wall so that knockback stopped effecting him and then just shooting until he was dead. Took a lot of damage, but the berserk packs helped.
The Arena Master's Staff helps with getting rid of some clustered corpses/enemies, once per level (or more sometimes).

Armoury: This was very dangerous. The Shambler took quite a while to kill because of his hitpoint regeneration, and teleportation. He managed to teleport and hit me at the same time. A few enemies that weren't in the lava respawned, and the only way I had to get rid of the Shambler's corpse was to kill another enemy on top of it immediately after killing it (otherwise the Shambler would've respawned, and I didn't want to fight it twice with shotguns). After that, eventually everything ended up in the lava but it took a while. The Armoury cache didn't open when the Shambler died, only when everything was dead.

I keep finding Bulk mods, and a Cybernetic Armor instead of a Schematic or advanced mod (although I did use the armour in the final battle with JC).
I made a second Tactical Armour, because the first kept getting wrecked and near destruction.

Hellgate: Invulnerabilty Globe just before it, so nice and easy (and I let them destroy each other's corpses with splash damage). Don't think I took any damage and the Elephant Gun I just assembled let me walk backwards and still hit the Bruiser Brothers for some damage. One of them respawned but was easy to kill again from where he was (they died in the middle of the first ambush area).

Level 16: Found a Hatred Skull, but without any levels in Brute (and Eagle Eye), there was no way I would contemplate a fist fight with Demons let alone the AoD.

Vault: Two invulnerabilty globes and a Berserk Pack just before it, I just let the splash damage destroy the corpses, shot a few Revenants into the Lava, there was nothing interesting so I left here with invulnerability to spare.

Spider's Lair: Probably could have been difficult, but I had Invulnerabilty at the start. Thinking about ways of clearing it, possibly corpse stacking on a horizontal line, but the stairs are at either end of the middle of the map, so if you can kill everything from the stairs you can just exit.

Level 20: Started on this map, surrounded by Arch-Viles. Lost quite a lot of health.

Morturary: Entered while Invulnerable. Used a Hatred Skull, then a Nuke followed by a Homing Phase Device which took me to the Assault Shotgun. After the Nuke, a single bloody corpse survived at the top of the screen, as well as the Angelic Armor.

Lava Pits: Thanks to envirosuits and Gothic Boots it was easier (and having 100 hitpoints helps).
Berserker Armor was here.

Cyberdemon: Nuked. The battle afterwards was very tough. All 3 of my armours took a beating (Angelic, Red(P) and Cybernetic(B)), and he summoned all of his Barons immediately. When the cybernetic armour broke I was in trouble, I activated the lava element, and he died from the double shotty and his own Barons before I did. Oh and I noticed, he isn't effected by knockback at all, although his rocket launcher sends his own Barons flying far away.

-----

This was a pretty ugly run for me. I took a lot of damage from attacks and from making enemies gib their own corpses. Didn't earn the Iron Skull, anyone have any idea how to get that reasonably? the amount of damage you have to take per level on average is very high. I've yet to earn the Untouchables as well, probably easier to get on lower difficulty settings.

Carrying a lot of medpacks and finding Invulnerability helped so much with getting rid of corpses here. Imps/Hell Knights & Revenants are very good at "helping" out. You can kill Arch Viles on top of other corpses, but it's not something that's really viable or easy to do.
Pushing corpses around with barrels until they are next to acid/lava and then knockback them in works too but isn't optimal.

Marksman Diamond attempt, I tried to clear everything, not very successfully (78%) and I couldn't even finish Hell's Arena. After nearly dying there, a lever in my starting location was too tempting to resist. Predictable results ensue.

I'm kinda obsessive about fully clearing, but this is one of the badges I'll either have to give up on that for, or find a way to do it (might require a lot of time/patience/attempts).

 Before him 2 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1 of those was killed.




 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.

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


While great weapons, firing the Grammaton and the Storm Bolter in fully automatic mode did present me with ammo difficulties, at times I had switch down to using the Grammaton in single/semi-auto with the Speedloader Pistol. This gave me an appreciation of MAC (used in a later run).

Nothing special, except this was my first soul getting back into DoomRL. Begin to fall in love with Necroarmor and the Hyperblaster. Phaseshift boots are great, but hard to find.

Edit: Well, coming back to this game, I realise that the most special thing was that Berserker Armor and Dragonslayer spawned in the same game. I was kinda hoping that they always spawned together, but it doesn't appear to be that way browsing other mortems.

 18 of those were killed.

 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 4 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 2 killed the bastard and survived.

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

I decided that I wouldn't take MAC or a Master Trait in this challenge.

I kinda screwed up at CC, and blew up the Chainsaw with a Rocket (nearly died from the Arena Master too, and really felt the downsides of not having Reloader when I faced off against him). I'm not sure if there is a particular N! strategy for CC in any of the guides, but I think grabbing the berserks and standing in the doorway launching rockets to wherever you suspect the Arena Master to be might be the safest bet? The lava protects you from the Barons as long as the walls don't get destroyed. It seems especially pertinent in AoI where you have no way of healing (other than the berserk packs) and the Arena Master is quite tough at the level you face him at. Can his staff be destroyed by splash damage? I'm guessing not, because it's an Artifact, and I haven't managed to blow it up yet despite consistently killing AM with rockets.

Ambushed the Shambler. Luckily it didn't teleport to anywhere I didn't have cover from, and I just wasted ammo (plenty of ammo on that level) until it died. Didn't make the same mistake as last time and destroyed his corpse straight away.
I wasted a lot of ammo on level 13 to keep my killcount up, namely rockets and BFG blasts in all directions, and pretty sure I destroyed something exotic or unique there.
Took the easy way of clearing level 15 (Rockets/BFG), but underestimated a Nightmare Imp and took some damage. I'm glad there aren't any N! Viles there.

Level 16, took simply forever. I found the minimum damage rule applies to AoD, he takes 1 damage from even the weakest of attacks, as long as they hit. If only said attacks had even a 5% critical instant death chance, it wouldn't take nearly as long. It was strange when I realised I was around 3x faster than Lost Souls in the beginning, berserked I could kill 2 adjacent Lost Souls without taking damage.
The Scythe seems to lack many of the special properties of the Longinus Spear, so given a choice between the two, I think I would prefer LS, I did note that Scythe will take down anything up to an Arch Vile in 1 hit while berserked. Whisper of Death might have some risky tactical advantages, but not on AoI.

The Railgun I found on level 17 seems to have weak stats, surprisingly, but amazing penetration and range.
I couldn't find a way into the middle Vault. On AoI, I think it would take a Nuclear weapon (and prior Invulnerability).
Invulnerability Globes & Gothic Boots said that I should attempt Lava Pits. Thankfully the envirosuits there still work on AoI, if you can get to them. The reward was not really worth it (Medical Powerarmor (not that much can compare to Angelic anyway). Lava Element was consumed instantly on pickup).

I regret finishing JC off with fists now. Most nuke kills on JC are naturally fist. Combat Knife would be a lot rarer, considering most Malicious Knife full wins would use the Cleaver or Chainsword anyway.
I wasted tons of mods experimenting in this run (they disappear on pickup). I haven't been able to successfully mod an Assembly yet, even with maxed out Whizzkid, but I see modded Assemblies in Ao100. I took Whizzkid early purposely so I wouldn't waste mods, oh well.

I need to do a few AoMr and get some silver badges to rank up. Still wondering how to get an Apostle to spawn, but it's probably way out of my league anyway.

Traded a homing phase device for a level and easy exit early on. I was hoping to find an Invulnerability on 24 to make it a full victory.

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


Not sure what I can say, I found it really difficult without Hellrunner, Dodgemaster & FireAngel (not that I find AoPc easy anyway). Didn't have a phase device for level 15, so I made a straight break for the hellgate. Level 16 turned out to be a heavily guarded Arachnotron Cave, without any way to dodge, I was repeatedly near-killed and finally had to make a mad dash when it was clear I couldn't heal my way out. Made it to level 17 barely alive and steps away from the stairs, but had no way to get past the Arch-Vile (with nearby acid barrels).
Is this really considered an easy Diamond? Lack of running speed & dodge makes me feel like a sitting duck for most nightmare level enemies.

I tried Marksman Diamond earlier, but wasted vital supplies trying to clear HA. I think that it's not worth attempting (clearing HA on a Marksman Diamond run, that is), it's difficult to make safe kills and beat the rate of respawn with a single pistol and no SoG.

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

I'm quickly racking up the deaths here, but it's all adding to my experience of melee so it's worthwhile. I've decided to go for Arena Diamond, but I don't know a specific strategy to get it that doesn't require some luck, hence the rapid deaths. This is about the closest I've got so far, and I knew that I would die, because I entered with 30% and no medpacks (and probably should've gone for Berserker Diamond instead), so it's a definite YASD. I think that if I had had decent health and medpacks, I would've had a chance here, but I'm not finding level 3 to be easy at all with the Hellknights, and it's hard to sneak past the middle of the map which I had to do to reach the Hell Arena stairs (had an open map again, and enemies in the middle of the map can see all the way to the top and bottom).

I would ask for tips but I think this is just one of those luck-based challenges that I'll have to persevere with until I get it.

Managed to get my first GK Diamond here, also cleared The Wall for extra experience. Was going for a YAAM minus one run (minus AoD), and will keep in mind that AoD should be possible for the future. However Mortuary nearly killed me, either I used the wrong shotgun (or didn't find the right one), or the wrong strategy, or it's just plain difficult for shotgun-users there.

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 11 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 7 of those were killed.

 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.


 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 3 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

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



With hindsight, I probably should have gone for Longinus Diamond as well, but when it occured to me, I'd already selected Brute. With the Double Chainsaw and different traits instead of Bru/Ber, maybe it would've been possible. I knew that restricting myself from Iro/TaN for the Destroyer diamond could make AoD potentially much trickier. Unfortunately my inexperience with this game version led me to be unsure whether I could handle AoD without berserk or not (he only did me 8 hp damage berserked in total, from 132% to 116%, and I let him have the first strike).

I wasn't awarded with GK Diamond above, but did clear it without taking damage (hence Platinum). The reason I wasnt awarded it was I believe a Nightmare Cacodemon respawned at the same time as I walked into the Hellgate. The transition doesn't happen instantly as it does with the stairs since you're actually moving from one square to the next. This also cost me my YAAM, and I got a little lax with JC and allowed him to summon hellspawn, so the 5 Barons in the picture plus the N! Caco make up the 6 guys I missed out.

I already have GK Diamond, on the run before this one, which was U|AoSg. Should I post that mortem? I could post it in the main section since it's only Ultraviolence.

Oh I forgot to mention, the YASD would've been pretty bad (hilarious or worse) if it actually happened. I found the BFG 10K on the penultimate level, dropped a Power Mod into it, went to the nearest corner, lined up some enemies. Naturally I took a few BFG AoE blasts at point blank range in the face, this being my first experience with most weapons, I didn't realise it had spread somewhat like a combat shotgun (or AoE either really, having not used it before, and even if I had, I would've assumed it's "safe" AoE like the regular BFG 9K anyway).

Hopefully this gives some laughs, it would've been an ignominous end to the run if I didn't get a victory because I picked up an OP weapon on the penultimate level that killed me.

Finally had enough time to finish a game. Decided to fall back to medium difficulty so I could explore all (well most, since its an AoB) of the way through. Ended up with 14 "portable berserk kits", and just filled the rest up with Red Armour. Used one phase device the entire game (probably obvious where, it was a useful place to use it) and found more but exchanged them for Red Armors. Could have spent more time berserk-killing in the Mortuary, but wasn't sure how many Archviles and healing there was on the level.

I decided to punch CD to death. In non-berserk mode he barely takes damage.
Berserked, you are Mr T.

I know I should be on UV difficulty but I tried that, jumped right into it and got overwhelmed by the new AI. I think if I can win a normal H game, then I will be ready for UV again.

This one was just an attempt to complete the game in fewer turns and with fewer xp. I could definitely
have done it in less turns, but on some levels I couldn't find the lift down, and as usual I made sure I got as many exploration bonuses as possible. I also made sure I got the best armament, but I think thats sensible even if you're trying to do in few turns.

And now obviously I'm going to download the new version of DooMRL :)

I originally intended to go pistols, but I think it takes too many traits and you might as well use a Plasma Rifle instead. Therefore I regretted taking Son of a Gun, also Shottyman to a degree. Taking 2 extra levels of TaN instead would've helped greatly.. but I still won so not too fussed.

I entered every dungeon that I could find. I think for some reason there wasn't a City of Skulls, as I didn't get the stairs message, else I would have attempted it. I entered but then gave up on Spider's Lair, it was consuming too much ammo. Same for the Mortuary, I attempted it but theres just too many AVs and self-resurrecting corpses and the reward is only AA, so I exited via the safest corner (Adv RL, which I didn't bother taking as I had one from the Wall). I could have nuked Mortuary, but I didn't want to risk the nuke mortem bug being the reason I didn't get a N! win.

After 24 levels of pure N! hell and a nuked CD, JC was a piece of cake (I still had 105% health when he died, the remainder of my overhealth from level 24).



Oh I thought this would happen to the hiscore table. I just wanted to see for myself.
"scored 1521672 points."
any score over 999,999 shows up as 6 digits in the hiscore table (only space for 6 digits).
so my top score is N 152167 .. and underneath it is my 290,000ish win from AoI game.



Ok lets see, Major requirements:
Win on at least Hurt Me Plenty. Ok I think I've done that now :)
complete AoMr
complete AoP

I think AoP is going to be much easier, because I get to use all my weapons, so thats next.


Oh I just noticed this, I love this (from my player info):

Difficulty level achievements:
Nightmare!: fully won (1 win total) deaths: none kills: 4888

No deaths, and nearly 5000 kills. I might never play N! again just to keep it like that, lol.

This for my Captain rank, and one of the easiest games I've played so far (you don't need medkits with Int 3). I cleared CoS, taking 1 hp damage in total. I probably could've cleared (or given it a good attempt) the Mortuary with pistols, but I didn't think I had enough ammo, so I went in like the Cyberdemon on N! (fastload RL plus 3 levels of reloader equals almost non-stop rocketing) and finished off the remainder with pistol ammo I scrounged from dead former captains.

I had originally intended to take on the CD with one pistol, but found 3 special pistols (1 fastload, and 2 extended), so the game was really pushing me to take a level of Dualgunner, and I couldn't ignore the obvious advantages of dual wielding extended pistols.. its like having a plasma rifle with chaingun ammo.

JC took over 150 bullets to kill, and by firing a couple at CD it shows that he takes around 100 to kill, so my earlier estimations about the pistols and SoaG seem to be correct. 48 Barons behind JC survived again.


N! difficulty unlocked. My last two games should have given me enough AoMr and AoB experience to have a good chance at those challenges for Major, as they were pistol and LS games, although I see now I don't have to complete AoB for Major rank, just AoMr and AoP. I think they are both harder than any challenge I've attempted so far (AoP sounds harder than AoI, but if I just replace some of my unused rockets (I had over 100 in total this game and had to keep dropping some) from this game for large medkits, I should be ok).


It should be possible to kill the CD almost 100% of the time with pistols in AoMr with no medkits/phase devices, as long as you have the right traits, supercharged/Badass health and full AA. This is because, even if he spawns in front of you, you can defeat the CD, without even dodging. You should deal 200 hp of damage with pistols before he can deal you 100 hp of damage with rockets. I think thats hilarious actually, that you can go toe to toe with the CD with pistols and win without using a medkit or phase device, but then only with (boosted) health, and AA (otherwise you will die first).

The only part I'm unsure of, is that in AoMr your best pistol combo is probably Advanced and Fastload, whereas I was able to dual wield Extended pistols. Perhaps AoMr should give you an Extended pistol instead of Advanced :P (so no WK mods in beta lol).
