Fellow old maniacs - the "use 5 ways to remove poison" thing is fine at 5 ways. Removing poison through viper ward purchase is just us being sneaky bastards (done it on numerous ocassions myself) but I think hte point of that achievement is to get people to get familiar with the basic stuff.
Just hink about the timing and crap that would be needed to fit the purchase into the rotation and then you're purchasing somethign that you have to get rid of if you want to get poisoned again. Takes a lot of experience to start thinking about it (as well as encyclopaedic knowledge of all the crap in the game).
Killing a lvl 10 at lvl 1 is still easy as pie (for the right sort of grizzled veteran) with the right unlocks, it's not killing the boss at lvl 1 without killing anything else. Orc Rogue + Fabulous Treasure + Prepped Tikki Tooki picked up at the right time + Bear Mace + any DP string / damage increases you can find. Not Trisword needed at all (I've done SMM this way and the vicious Goblin even (I think)). You could probably do Aequitas in with a Fighter (what with the initial free DP probably easier than with some other guys). Heck, if I wasn't rusty I'd do a "bet you can't do it with x" with anything you can name (provided I can go Orc), I used to do them to relax between serious runs with no Trisword back when it was busted
You can do Namtar at lvl 1 even, knocback + TT potions is crazy strong...
Sriously, the one time I went to record it I had to do it 4 times in a row because the first 3 times I messed up with video recording in 3 different ways (each time I'd do it and then find out the video is messed up, was frustrating) :_D
