Discussion / Re: Progressing on UV Arch Ao Lt. How do I improve?
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:12 »
I usually can clear chained court with archvile, but it often costs me a medpack, and even with it I am low on ammo and do not have full health on exit. Overall I feel it is much harder than Military base, and also appears 2 levels earlier. And with barons locked and no V it is order of magnitude easier. And as ArchAoLT you do not have room for arena staff anyway.

There is always a risk of barons or archvile destroying the berserk packs, or even destroying the chainsaw if you did not pick it first, or items that you dropped for some reason, like making room to pick up chainsaw. Is there a way to pick up chainsaw without having free slot in inventory?

After you killed barons (hopefully to the right of the structure) you go kill former captains. And you do so without berserk as it was used to kill all the barons and you have only one left. Then you find the archvile, but can not fight him, so you run back to pick the last berserker pack. by the time you arrive there are lots of formers nearby and by the time you kill him you take a lot of damage, even with berserk. You finish the remaining formers, mostly with shotguns.

The problem is not just RNG. The problem is that drops gradually persistently improve in quality with the number of games you play. Transferring stuff between different games is not very roguelike.

I switched my build a bit, now I take ToN first, than Bad.

I do not like IM, ToN is much better, the point of Vampyre is to have more mitigation and maintain your health through lifesteal, not to have more total health that you can not reliably regenerate.

I tried playing with not clearing the last wave in arena. I can clear it easily, but it makes chained court much harder. I wish there was an option to clear it fully for XP and than choose to decline the title of arena champion and rewards just to avoid tripled difficulty of Chained Court.

I'm a bit disappointed in nano weapons, now I want WZ mainly because I want to assemble red armor with PAO or PAN but..

[rage]
Fuck those schematic drops! I can hardly believe the brilliant developer who made this great game could even think of idea as idiotic as schematic drops. Every time I get to clear hell's armory on UV I get a useless schematic drop. Not Nano or Onyx for my armor. Not sniper's for plasma shotgun. Not even firestorm for missile launcher. Stupid useless schematic. And with disgustingly large number of assemblies in the game I know it will ruin a dozen more runs for me.

Adding insult to injury if you ragequit with "Q" the discovered schematic is not added to profile. Why would anyone think that not counting schematics from games you quit is a good idea? You better take a lava bath for your stupid schematic drops ragequits.

I tried tried discover some schematics, but it way too slow. I tried AoHu tech to start with more mods and I tried easiest difficulty, but discovering schematics either way is slow.

Seriously almost any way to introduce assemblies to players would be better. Why not add schematics as a reward for completing the game? Or as a reward in addition of normal drop, not as a replacement? Or as a common random drop on simple layers. Or WHY THE FUCK not make the list of all schematics known in game to begin with we are in 21st century everyone will look up stuff on wiki anyways.

It is so infuriating that it even affected my decision to not pre-order Jupiter's Hell yet.

Is there a hack to disable those schematic drops?

After getting HMP ArchAoLT with relative ease I am trying to do the same on UV.

For sacrificed 20 slots you gain a whopping 30% speed which makes very early game even easier, than standard game.

I have 2 ideas to try.

One is melee build with vampire.  Use shotgun in early game while leveling. In lategame your vampiricism will sustain you.

Another idea is to get to Armoury somehow, find nano mod and eventually build a nanomanufacture/nanoshrapnel weapon.

In both cases I want WizKid on non technician.

I can clear up to chained court fairly well with my build. It is levels 6-7 that I struggle with. The number of sergeants drops limiting your ammo supply, the number of armoured enemies requiring multiple shots to kill even at point blank raises. And at that point I am still not strong to rely on melee, especially if level is full of open spaces.

My build so far is Fin->Bad->Bru->Bru->Ber->MVamp in preparation for melee lategame and Wz

What should I do to improve? Is WizKid a good skill to pursue?

Post Mortem / [H|AoMr+Ao100|93%|YAVP] Sharpshooter grind
« on: January 11, 2018, 15:47 »
My first HMP win. Ao100 feels somewhat easier, than standard game. Getting an early blaster and combat was very nice, but game was not too hard even with simple pistols modded. Being umodable Grammaton is not as strong, as I hoped. The very end was a boring grind, I started skipping levels and did not reach lvl 25. Inquisitor set is totally overpowered in lategame with so many fire based enemies and lava all over the place. Had onyx and nano pack unused...

Discussion / Skulls
« on: January 04, 2013, 11:56 »
Are skulls considered good? Good enough to risk going to city of skulls. Can I use these in Berserk, Shotgunnery or Marksman challenges?

Hello. Just won my first game on "not-hard" difficulty. I took technician marksman. Instead of taking dualgunner I went for sharpshooter. The idea was to get double benefit from power mods that I have plenty as WK. With only one gun I can use ammo chains for fast reload, Even with reloader trait you won't double reload as fast. Having high rate of fire and decent damage even when I need to fire much more than 6 shots. With 17 damage per hit enemy armor is not an issue. (Inability to one-shot lost souls is somewhat annoying, wish I could get 20 damage).

While the game is much shorter than Dungeon Crawl SS (which I won a couple of times and enjoyed a lot) it feels very fun and well balanced. Ability to pick difficulty is what many roguelikes miss. "Medium" difficulty is not very hard, just takes a few YASDs to learn it. I tried some games on H and on UV and the things do become scary rather fast. In the future I\d rather play DoomRL than commit to a ful game of Dungeon Crawl or (god save) Angband.
 Hoping to get my hands on version 1.0.0 soon.
