0.9.9.5 / [M|AoOC|76%|YAVP] First try ever of AoOC ended well...
« on: January 28, 2012, 14:42 »
Yeah, as the title says I decided to randomly give Angel of Over-Confidence a go, and happened to have it go very well, coming across a handful of modpacks and an early duelist armor to give myself some decent protection, and then coming across the Jackhammer at the very start of 6 and just destroying with it. Even better - Invulnerability globe on the floor before the Mastermind meant I was victorious on my first ever attempt at the challenge.

Decided it would be best to go a defensive trait set up and it didn't disappoint either - dodgemaster ASAP was golden at the start of the challenge, when combined with the knockback of the assault shotgun you're given basically means the only enemies who can really threaten you are archviles and mancubi, or revenants if you're caught in splashable range. Everything else simply served to get me going ASAP and allowed me to survive. I did happen to get a large amount of health pickups in the levels though (medpacks, 3 supercharges or so) so I dunno if it would go this well if I tried it again.

Regardless, extremely happy with it! I'm really feeling I should move beyond HNTR now, as I'm finding that serious attempts at victory (as in, not attempting a very difficult challenge for the first time) tend to result in victories 50% of the time now.

0.9.9.5 / [M|AoB|86%|YAFW] First AoB Win Ever
« on: January 21, 2012, 18:13 »
Well, I was typing a bunch of stuff up and then lost it all because I accidentally, stupidly navigated to another webpage! Gaaaaahhh.
Anyways, first AoB win ever, among other firsts. Hadn't played the game since 0.9.8.10, having won once on AoMr then and once plain on Easy. Always had hated doing AoB though, as my runs never got off the ground, usually getting slaughtered slowly but surely by the former sergeants early on. But this run, after the grinder that was the arena, started going very well. Especially once I did the Chained Court and got the chainsaw.

Did a lot of things for the first time - UC (easiest special level ever in AoB, only lost 20% of 200% if that), The Mortuary (ran away though, was too many enemies for me to handle ultimately), Dis (nuke+invinc), and fought JC. That battle was also hilariously easy - as I approached, he summoned a few lost souls that I almost immediately berserked cutting through on my way to him, and then slaughtered him in 8 turns of melee, taking almost no damage whatsoever. Really pathetic actually. Probably be harder for other characters though.

Didn't end up doing 100% as I originally wanted, after realizing I missed mobs in Halls of Carnage. Part of the reason I had so many medpacks left at the end. Also, had so many lava infested levels in the last few stages. It was starting to get silly, so I just sort of didn't bother trying to kill too many of the enemies then.

Saw a lot of nice items I sadly couldn't use though - Firestorm weapon pack (first time drop T.T), Missile Launcher (random spawn, skipped the wall), tons of mods I couldn't really utilize properly so I stopped picking most up, Cybernetic Armor (could've used, but didn't want to risk being stuck with something useless - ended up getting lots of red after a dearth of armor in general so I ended up being ok). Phaseshift boots were nice, though they spawned super late (Lava Pits). Acid-Proof boots were an early drop though, and made some acid river levels much easier.

Also, thought I could maybe use the Nuclear Rifle as a nuke also. Apparently can't on AoB, didn't know how the Alt-Fire would interact with the restriction.

ANYWAYS! It was an amazing run, the first AoB run I've ever done that's made it even a third of the way through the game, much less all the way. And I doubled my bronze medal count and got my first gold medal, along with I think my 2nd & 3rd silver medal. I no longer have a dislike for AoB anymore (I had originally just done this run to rank up! Oh the irony...)

Discussion / Need AoB Advice
« on: January 21, 2012, 01:28 »
Just passed the City of Skulls on this HNTR AoB run (saw my first Firestorm pack ever too...) and had a few questions, since I've never been NEARLY this far on AoB:

1) How do you do handle the really strong late-game enemies in a melee build? Specifically, I'm thinking of guys like the archviles and mancubi.
2) What should I used my mods on? So far, I've gotten a lot of agility that I've thrown onto armor when I could (the better to reach people to chainsaw them!). Will I be able to turn the cybernetic armor I just got into nanofiber cybernetic armor with another P, and is it worth doing, or is the speed loss too much? Also, since I can't check without starting my game up from save, can i throw a second bulk mod on my chainsaw without whizkid?
3) Just any other quick tips? Which levels should I avoid like the plague?

Don't worry about spoilers.
Thanks!

0.9.9.5 / [M|98%|YASD] I don't know how I could've avoid this...
« on: January 17, 2012, 16:43 »
Heya, just recently came back to this after a long absence after noticing the graphical beta was up, and decided to start playing it again. Imagine my surprise at how much had changed (thought I'd won when I beat the cyberdemon). Anyways, it was a fun run, and only my second time ever beating him (did two or three dozen runs prior to now, and this was my 5th run since starting it up again) and then I got thrown into a situation I don't know if I could've handle better, so I thought I'd see if anyone had any words of wisdom for me. I was spawned with two arachnotrons within view of me, so I immediately unloaded with my plasma rifle (nuclear plasma rifle + ammochain is hilariously fun, although I didn't get to enjoy it for long), after taking down both of them I was almost dead, and having used up my healing when I got shot from off screen by cybie I moved onwards, only to run into a third arachnotron before I could reach either the medpack or berserk pack in view. Considering I was almost dead, and not thinking I'd have time to run and escape, I used my homing phase device only to find that the stairs were still in his view range and he killed me.

The only thing I could think of would've been to possibly move away from the center of the lvl and try to get congregation to occur (but it's incredibly difficult for me to discern where I am relative to the lvl in the graphics beta, as I can't view the whole map) or to move left instead of right (I guess there were two health globes over there) but I'm wondering if there would've been a better response to the initial situation that wouldn't have whittled down my remaining 50-60% hp to 7% before I ran into the third arachnotron. Maybe switching armor at the start, but I'm not very aware of the time value for that and didn't want to get pummeled while I was changing. Any opinions? Bad luck or easily survivable?

Discussion / Minigun - Useful w/Master Trait?
« on: September 01, 2009, 16:19 »
Just thought I'd pose this question, as hearsay has told me that it is a very inaccurate weapon. I'm currently running an Angel of Impatience, and just finished Phobos Base lv9 where I found the minigun. Since I'll also have whizkid, I guess the question is if it would be more valuable to mod a chaingun (hopefully advanced) with agility and damage mods than to use the minigun? Is the minigun better than the chaingun in the meantime, what with only a single agility mod on the chaingun? (A1, that's the accuracy one in the beta, right?)

Any opinions on this?

EDIT: Note that I will NOT have Eagle Eye, because of the aforementioned master trait.
EDIT 2: Make that an A2 chaingun :D

Pre-0.9.9 / [E|99%|YAVP] First Win, Pathetic As It May Be :D
« on: August 28, 2009, 03:14 »
Yeah, win on easy mode isn't that impressive (if I win in the future, I'll only post if it is actually notable, lol), but it was fairly satisfying considering the problems I was having with the game (for some reason, the game kept crashing on me for several characters before the issue mysteriously disappeared...).

Was an interesting game. Went fairly haphazardly on the talents, besides the early focus of acquiring intuition 3, which proved to be the turning point for me in regards to the later areas of the game (as in, I didn't walk into deadly situuation that I could've otherwise handled from afar). Got some normal items and uniques to drop that proved to be very useful to getting through the game:
1) Missile Launcher. Once acquired, this paired with intuition proved critical to late-game success, and was great for sniping.
2) Jackhammer. Didn't get it until fairly late, but became my staple attack choice at that point, only otherwise using the Plasma Rifle.
Used the chaingun alot early on in the game to mow through the weaker enemies too.

One thing that also proved to be a major point of my success this game was the proper usage of Tactics. Previously, I never made use of the ability to Run, and actually putting that to use early on with the shotgun, and later on to dodge rockets from some of the enemies (not to mention surviving going down the stairs into a group of enemies on lv20ish...).

Had a thermie, and being thoroughly spoiled, I was sadly disappointed to not find a method of invulnerability for lvl 25. Also, never used the Hell Staff. Wasn't even quite sure how it worked anyways :/

I hope that next time I post it will be something a bit more respectable. What I'm shooting for is a Medium AoMarksmanship victory, so I'll just have to see (and pray for pistol uniques...)
