It's been a while!  Whatever skills I had have felt like they are gone, but eventually I was able to get through a UV game.  I wanted to play a generalist with Malicious Blades.  The early game was fine, lots of shotgunning, except when I did something dumb and died, or couldn't make it through CC+ - this is my first character to get to XL 7.  Amusingly once I did get it, I hadn't been carrying a 2nd knife so had to use the chainsaw in melee.  Deimos Lab awarded PPBBFO mods, which led to some tough choices.  I didn't really want to carry mods around waiting to assemble cerberus etc despite my ballistic vest.  Converting shotgun(P) to elephant gun also tempted, but eventually decided on bulking a knife and finishing tactical shotgun and making OP red armour, protection now is better than resistances later.  Early micro launcher felt like an error, would rather have had the T mods at this point - especially once I found it wasn't breaking walls, fortunately found a missile launcher before the Wall.

I brought some phases planning to try for the lucky vaults clear, but instead I kind of cheated my way through (and Limbo too) (if I had planned on that, I could have dropped Arena Staff earlier!).  Can you see the hint in the mortem?

After getting Malicious Blades and WK2, I alternated between Iro to live (especially when current HP was low) and stuff like Finesse/Brute/Juggler for extra offense.

In the later part of the game the only real problem was Mancubi flinging me (and themselves!) everywhere and destroying all the stuff (many mods, and the double medpack from a HK - I use one of my 2-3 hoarded packs after seeing those drop, step out, and they explode).  Not sure what I'm meant to do about those - maybe assemble some low-knockback boots?

 5 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 13 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 5 killed the bitch and survived.
 5 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Nice return to the forums!  Welcome back!  :)  (Almost 7 years!)  :o

Judging by your finishing hp, I'm guessing you used the Azrael's Scythe trick to get Scavenger Diamond?  :)

Indeed, Azrael's - I was at 70 or 80 HP at that point so felt fine to go back.  Also used it for Limbo, but several Bs got raised and claimed some of the medpacks.  I didn't think of using the supercharges by the start point to refresh stamina instead.  On scanning other mortems, I see this is a common method of getting the Scavenger Diamond.

Thanks for the welcome! Reading your posts has been pretty cool, nicely documented accomplishments.  (I watched the Everyman Angelic, and tried to watch some of your other YT content but audio balance was a serious issue).

Yeah, sorry about the quality.  I have seriously crappy hardware, because I'm cheap.  :P  I did get a new microphone recently, and I'm hoping to maybe get a new graphics card soon, so maybe things will get better for future videos.  :)
