So, I really wanted to do a challenge that doesn't restrict me from using the master traits, (Why do so many of the Diamond badges require you to play masterless?  Hmph!)  so I decided to try for Blood Diamond.  (Also, I didn't want my game to be interrupted by an update, so I turned off beta testing)  :P  Since Angel of Vampirism theoretically meant my hp would be low all the time, I decided to lean into the strengths of Survivor and Angry MotherFucker traits.

I say "theoretically," because I actually turned out to be too effective a killer, up to the point that my health ended up being high almost all the time.  :P  (Oops!)  I started by going straight to AMF, because of the new 50% damage reduction when you're below 25% health, which...  I guess was helpful at the beginning, but as it turned out, quickly became irrelevant.  I think the re-kills of revived enemies is partly responsible for the fact that my health stayed high.

I didn't quite get Conqueror, because I wasn't able to kill everything at once in Frozen Temple.  (And I only went there to see if I could figure out how to use the "Frozen Heart," but I never did)  :(  I also tried to figure out how to open that mysterious right-most door in Infernal Lock, but didn't get that either.  :|  I did map out which switches open which doors, though, so there's that.

The shotgun with freezing ability you see there was one I got as the reward in Valhalla Command, and it was quite useful for the whole game, including the Summoner battle, especially against those occasional groups of fast-moving melee enemies.  I was able to freeze them and reload while running away.  :)

I'm not wearing any armour in the mortem, because it took a real beating on the second last level, (a hunt level where I got cornered) and got finished off during the Summoner battle, but I was wearing some basic armour I found early on that offered auto-reloading of automatic weapons, which I found quite helpful for the whole game, especially in combination with the automatic amp that gave a nice 20% damage boost to my pierce rifle.  :)

I carried around a storm SMG (or whatever it's called?  The one that fires 11 bullets at a time) for a while in case any enemies ever got too close, but it wasn't really getting very frequent use, so I was content to switch it up for the rocket launcher with the toxic cloud ability for the last few levels.
