Hey, welcome to the forums!  :D

The game lasted...  76 DAYS?  O_o  I'm pretty sure that's a new record, so congrats for that, I guess!  :D

And yeah, I think Scout is the way to go for this challenge.  It's already mind-numbingly boringly long as it is without having to hunt for the stairs too.  :P  Personally, I did it with a Bladmaster build, so I wouldn't have to bother with tedious ammo or reloading; just charge into groups of enemies.  :)  (That was over 5 years ago?  Wow!)  :o

Still, Cateye could work too, so best of luck with that!  :)

It's really the grind that got me on this one. I'd left the game running for 2 and a half months, taking a break to play Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup in the meantime. Figured I should try to finish it up before it or my computer crashed. Didn't heal when I should have, was trying to grab a berserk pack off the floor instead.

When/if I make another attempt, I think I'll go with a cateye scout instead of scavenger technician. Scavenger was nice for getting the nano packs I needed for my gear, but stair location and extended visual radius are probably more important for actually completing the game.

I love the nanomachic napalm launcher, but it was kind of a mixed blessing. Once you start using it it's hard to stop, since you're destroying most of the ammo you need for your other weapons, along with lots of other desirable pickups. It seemed like knockback was getting applied before damage too, so killing tougher fluid-immune enemies got pretty tedious unless I was able to pin them against a permanent wall. I eventually decided to start working on a nanomachic pistol so that I could take full spammy advantage of son of a gun, but didn't end up completing it before I died.

That's how we learned the Apostle's true appearance... in text mode.  Graphics mode is still up in the air; maybe it's just a plain ol' yellow archvile like the regular kind, but dammit I wanna see for myself.

I guess while I'm here, I'm also gonna ask: You guys do all know that it's actually called a soulsphere, right?  Not a supercharge?

Well, there is a way to get rid of the red, but you might not like it.  Picking up the Dragonslayer makes you berserk for 10,000,000 actions.  I once got rid of the red by running out the timer.  :)

Good question. Pretty good actually. See, I was coming from doing Ao100 with pistols. But it translated poorly to Ao666. It is extremely powerful, the dps is through the roof with SoG and SoB. But the knockback is a pain in the ass, and you have to press 'f' a million times. I actually did some testing, and it's much more comfortable to use the nanomachic plasma rifle at SoB 4 rather than 5, since it doesn't have knockback (it needs 12 damage to knock back). But I was missing a good single target knockback weapon for when you need to protect some items from enemies blowing them up and there are barrels around. The nuclear burst plasma sounds like it fits the deal. That said, with juggler it is quite important to be able to access an item with shortcuts, and exotics don't do that. And carrying ammo for a weapon is soooo Ao100. So it is either a pistol (doubtful, needs lots of skill to be decent) or a chaingun. Maybe assault chaingun (N)? 2d5+4 has a good chance at dealing 12 or more.

Eh, it's just my archaic mindset of "exotic means better".  Like I know a PPPBB combat pistol is better than an energy combat pistol P, but I'll probably still make the latter over the former anyway.

That said, which is better: a nanomachic laser rifle F, or a burst nuclear plasma rifle P?

Damn, I don't think I'm up for 400+ levels of red, specially with a technician instead of a scout. I'll prolly retire this guy.

Why did you use a laser rifle as a base in a scavenger? I assume you got intuition, which means you have 2 levels in eagle eye. A plain plasma rifle would deal slightly more damage with the extra shot in this case. I guess we read the same "guide", but I did some wiki reading and at the edge of LOS you have a 91% to hit with EE 2, vs 98% with the laser rifle. The extra shot is a 12.5% increase in damage with firestorm, and if I did the math correctly you get a full 2 extra shots when chainfiring the plasma vs the laser (12 vs 10).

I don't think it's possible at all.  For a hypothetical next version, I'd like to suggest the option for colored borders to indicate berserk/enviro/invul/etc. effects so the field can still be seen in normal colors.

Is there a way to turn off the Berserk red tint? I have 400+ floors to go on this run, and I'd like to be able to distinguish stuff... Been looking around in config.lua but I cant seem to find anything relevant there.
