Has anyone gotten the Speed King Steam achievement?

#1keichi morisatoPosted 1/9/2010 2:53:26 AM
Just wondering if any has actually gotten it, as i was reading about how the ironman victory one might be bugged, so i was wondering if this might be bugged also.

I plan on getting a vanquisher on easy to speed through it, but I wanna make sure im gonna get the achievement if I manage to pull it off.

thx in advance

I assume the 0% achievements must be bugged, as don't see how people can have completed VH HC but not Hard HC...

speed king is unbugged, have it on my steam profile from an easy hardcore runthrough

also @ thecallhimjim: the 0% achievements must just be anything less than .1% (.09, etc), because I have the Supreme Slayer achiev. on my profile so it can't be bugged. But of course yes, some of them are bugged down there (alric easiest to figure out :x)

I did easy / non-hardcore last night (2:56).

Vanquisher, generation 2, shared stash (My endgame pistols and armour). All worked fine, just CHARGED through the dungeon. Was a bit worried I wouldn't make a high enough level for my gear, but it was pretty easy.

Must do hardcore next. Didn't get ironman victory, but I did use some enchant shrines.

As for speed king, like the previous poster suggested, save up some powerful weapons (enchant a lev 20ish weapon up a lot), then put all your early points into the expertise of that weapon to lower its level so you can use it by level 10.

After that, rush through the rest of the dungeon, killing only as necessary.

I played it as a Vanq on very easy/nonHC with no twinking and had no trouble making the 5 hour cutoff. I just used whatever gear I could find, ignored single enemies, spammed ricochet or explosive shot at normal enemies and spammed arrow hail at Ordrak to win. I died 10-12 times, mostly to Ordrak where I just respawned in place and was thankful for a mana refill rather than any inconvenience at dying.
