If someone said that not having Iro in that circumstance would have helped you, I think you were misled.

Funny you should say that, 'cause I could have sworn that it was you :)

EDIT: went through all my mortem posts, can't find it anymore :(

The only point I disagree with is LuckyDee's comment about Ironman.

That piece of advice is actually based entirely on one run, or rather the advice I got on the mortem. I had IRO1, which caused the Mastermind to not deal enough damage to trigger. Run ended right there D:

I agree with Omega on the WK part. Apart from Ao100/AAo666 runs, I don't think I've ever combined MVm with WK - with the Spear (or Scythe) to count on, you hardly need any more punch, and even the chainsaw should serve you nicely.

Fin is a solid investment to me, since attack time can make a lot of difference for your DPS, with SoB being out of the question. TAN should allow you a little damage control, as you definitely don't want to take any levels in IRO (which decreases your chances of going berserk). And with HR being prohibited as well, you'll swiftly find yourself running out of sensible options anyway.

As far as I know, the only thing that counts is dealing every killing blow with your fists. If you kill something with your secondary weapon, you're screwed - having your primary slot empty doesn't change anything. In fact, I think you can even clubber something to death with a non-melee weapon in your primary and still succeed. Shooting something to near death and then punching its lights out is also a valid - albeit risky - strategy.

Barrels/skulls/acid/lava/nukes and other non-weapon damage doesn't affect this badge. Save scumming should not affect run stats in any way.

I might not be 100% correct here, but I think I'm close at least.

Great initiative, if you ask me :)

Maybe we could even bump this thread to General Discussion and have some more people enjoy this... It doesn't appear to contain anything that isn't publicly available already.

@KK: agreed?

Next up - Kickstart LuckyDee's new computer?

Don't worry about me, I have too little time to be playing games anyway :)

Not that I let that deter me... D:

An epic tour of all the four (or how many were there? :P) moons! I'll meet you there!

Can't. My computer won't run JH D:

I know, right! :D
I became a bit of a lurker, but I'm still here... I'm a ghost that will always haunt the dungeons of the 'forge... (whose soul is stuck in limbo until jupiter hell is released :P)

Awesome. Any travel plans for when you're gonna be set free? ;)

Great, awesome!

Hey, you live! You've been silent for an awfully long time... :*(

Congrats man, MSs is indeed a challenge to get going, but once she's rolling...

And yeah, that's one hell of a lesson to learn. Bet you won't be forgetting that one any time soon D:

As far as your terminology goes: this run isn't a full win, but a partial. It's not a YASD either, as you clearly landed a win. See Da Rulez! and/or the Wiki for further clarification. To answer the unasked question: people pay me to be annoying like this, and I like taking my work attitude home with me ;)

Nice, and on AoB no less - that's no mean feat. Let's see how much time it will take you to surpass my skill level :S

I have to wonder what your experience with female fronted metal is, if that has been your reaction to it - perhaps your forthcoming review will shed some light on that question for me.

Well, for starters, as I've pointed out before, I think most metal is crap because almost any one band you pick sounds exactly like the next (just as about any band in any genre does). Prolific copy-catting puts me off a certain sound/style very quickly. In my experience, FFM to me is just about the worst of it, because

1) All vocalists sound exactly the same
2) Not only do all musical parts sound the same, they're also among the most standard riffs and progressions you can think of
3) I can't relate to the general mystical/fantastical/goth vibe the most visible of these bands try to convey (a fellow student of mine during my audio engineering course dubbed the style 'Efteling rock', after our most famous national amusement park which started out from a sort of permanent exhibition of famous fairy tales - since then I had to stop taking the entire scene seriously altogether)

What I have experienced from FFM, centered around bands like Within Temptation, is that it's boring, rehashed music that contains no genuine emotion, only the suggestion of one, and specifically one that will appeal to the developing sensibilities of sixteen-year-olds. Substitute the distorted guitars for some electronic samples, and you have pop music.

That being said, I was quite impressed with Vuur and bought their new album to give to my son next week (our version of Christmas, gift-giving-wise) - so there's some hope.

if you have an interest in women in metal, allow me to shamelessly plug this project i put together a few years ago

Hot diggity that's one impressive list. I'm pretty confident there's something on there that will prove my assumptions wrong - there just has to be - but digging into that is pretty daunting D:
