Follow up: I cleared River King Casino - Going All In (Level 3 Map 2) in the most dumb-luck way possible. I had Purrminator
Robo-Fortune and Toad Warrior
Cerebella leveled-up and ready to go. The enemy, diamond Pea Shooter
Peacock tried to finish off my low health Robo-Fortune with a Lonesome Lenny blockbuster followed immediately by a Bandwagon Rushdown blockbuster. She's in her clown car ramming the big blob of a bomb at me when it suddenly explodes, incinerating her half-health to ashes.
Saw Fel's video of a Beowulf beatdown and thought, "wow, that node restriction looks obnoxious." And then I saw the entire 21 nodes map has the same modifiers:
Cannot suffer more than 1% HEALTH from a single HIT.
All attacks are UNBLOCKABLE while below 25% HEALTH.
Danger Zone is cool, but Aegis feels more like a chore than a challenge. Like chopping down a tree with a spoon. Not much fighting finesse in hoping to have a gimmick SA handy or it is time-out city.
