YAMM:  Yet Another Mass-kicking Marine.  :P

Cerberus suit *and* boots?  That must've slowed you down a fair bit!  :o  Of course, HR 3 will take the edge off that, not to mention all those resistances allowing you to tank everything.  :)

Well, there's always ArchAo666.  It's so painfully long, you're pretty much guaranteed to get at least one of everything!  :)

I find that when you have the kind of defenses that MMB and a good Cerberus Armor provide you really don't need speed for about anything. Sure I get knocked about like a pinball on crack against all the explosive enemies, but them doing 1 percent damage pretty much means that unless I just glaze over and ignore everything I wont ever die once it gets going.

Even nightmare arachnotrons wont kill me so long as I remember to heal when I get low, they just don't do the kind of damage needed to kill me before I have a chance to heal and the depths that they start appearing mean that full health kits become more and more common. I fear that if I don't have some kinda lava proof boots that I would keep getting bounced into pools of lava that I would take more damage from. I would routinely fight rooms full of Archviles, mancubi and swarms of barons of hell, and at most they do about 30-50 percent damage, thats after killing all of them and not healing till I hit red health, then I can usually find some kinda spare health item that was not destroyed and rinse and repeat.

I would have taken an Anti Grav Phaseshift boots to compensate, but I always go cerberus unless I find either the Inquisitor set or the good Phaseshift set. I probably would start Ao666 just to try to fulfill that dream.

 48 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 38 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 4 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 5 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

So I finally got another Ao100 run again. Malicious Blades are really, really indestructible if you can make a good armor. I knew this run was gonna be magical when I found my Onyx mod and Phaseshift armor, I just had to survive till I could get the Mastery Trait followed by two ranks of Whizkid. I was also surprised to find out that 2 bulk modded combat knives I took from floor one were pretty effective at killing things with just 2-3 ranks of brute. If I never found the spare power mods to make the Chainswords + P I feel that I could still have killed things easily before I was in any danger of dying, 95 fire resistance and 70 acid means that the only real damage spikes I had to worry about were nightmare arachnotrons. The only three things I needed to turn this run into a dream run were the Dragonslayer, Butchers Cleaver, and Phaseshift boots. I even had the mods needed to make Antigrav + A just to fly across the screen, but no luck finding them. Oh well, maybe one run I can complete the dream.

I'm almost tempted to change my plans for Ao666 from MSs to MMB... :S

Just be aware that you'll need an alternate way to kill dudes till you've got your defenses up to par, a good Cerberus armour with Onyx or an armour or two to last you between armour shards or just a really good armour to beef up your energy resistances, ie fire, acid, and plasma. Once your defences are up to snuff then you can focus on just using melee two chainswords with the Bulk or better yet a spare power mod will start killing things well. You'll still want more and more brute ranks till you're killing things at a good clip or put off pure melee till all your defensive traits are online line more Ironman for more health or Hellrunner for more speed.  At some point you should start to get to the point where the only difficult part of killing a good chunk of enemies is reaching them and you should have a nice stash of large med kits, at that point its all about making sure to heal when you feel you should and making sure you remain above about %20 health.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations! I personally never understood the appeal of MMB, although the idea of not having to depend on berserk kicking in to be protected doesn't sound half bad. Guess I just didn't read through the description closely enough. Why didn't you go for P-modded chainswords though? Would have gone from 8D2 to 8D3 instead of 9D2. Bigger spread, but a better average damage... (I have to admit I had to look up B and P mod effects to be sure myself)

I read the wiki about how its more effective to use a Bulk mod on a Chainsaw on average vs a Power mod and assumed it was the same for things chainswords without thinking why it works for the chainsaw.

As for MMB the thing is that to me its a really defensive Master Trait. Sure you have that double swing for extra damage if using knives but the permanent resistances allow me to just tank everything and laugh and laugh as shit tries to kill me and just does nothing and the Dodgemaster means that I can just sidestep my way closer to anything that doesn't do high knock back. With the right armor like a good Cerberus armor with Onyx mod or better nano-fiber armor you can pretty much tank anything with a knife because of those resistances and that means that unless I get screwed with the drops of med kits or healing globes I can't die at all. Like to illustrate how immortal I was this run I killed two different Mancubi by repeatedly getting close enough to it to have its own missiles damage it an kill it. It works best on the longer runs like the Ao100 and Ao666 because eventually you will get the mods you need to make what you want on your techie and this trait makes sure that you survive till you can get your full power on.

First full Ao100 Win.

After I got MB working and Wk at rank 2 the rest of the challenge was pretty much over. I found what I needed to make the Cerberus Boots early and some mods to make Chainswords Bulk mod that I just started to main them, the real big thing was finding a Nano mod early enough to make Nano-fiber skin armor and later adding that Power for more protection.

Eventually I lucked out and found the Butchers Cleaver and that really helped my murder spree, I could just start running to things without the knock-back screwing me nearly as hard. Honestly though when I made my swords and fiber armor the challenge was effectively over not much was really damaging me excepting packs of Mancubi and even then they only damaged me because I couldn't get close enough to kill them and then I still had an inventory nearly stuffed with Large Medkits.

There's something just funny about tanking enough Mancubi rockets to make it kill itself and barely have a scratch on me. My only regret was not finding the Dragonslayer and having permanent berserk, at that point I would be effectively immortal with near 95 percent resistances, tho I'm eventaully gonna try for the A0666 to see if I can ever get my MB Techie that berserk just for lol's.
