Normal Single Segment Speed Run in 01:42:11

Post by JTB123 » Tue Dec 20, 2016 8:59 pm

Been busy again and got my time down by quite a bit. This made me really want to pick apart normal though, I think sub 1 hour 40 minutes is very doable. Got some stratagies to iron out over the week and hoping to have everything down by Friday. There are still two big mistakes in this run.

I tried something new with the commentary for this run. I streamed the recorded run live and did the commentary that way which I think worked out really well, it's great to be able rewind the video if needed and explain the strategies and thought process with the chat and answer questions about the run.

Great video and thanks for cleaning up my big goof. :ninjabow: Send me the file when you can please.

It's always fun to do the commentary with you and looking forward to the next run.

Excellent run. Always nice to see a pro, such as yourself, not be perfect. Give hope to the rest of us.

Impressive!

Perhaps you should submit to speedrun.com ngb leaderboards? Their guys are way way behind you

I'm in the process of submitting my segmented run but their submission process is still archaic. I can only submit it at the weekend due to size of the file I'm sending and they have a lot of conditions on top of that as well. With how busy I've been since the start of the year it's making it a huge hassle. Still hoping to have that submitted soon though.

I'm still waiting on single segment as now I have an optimal route in mind I want to set aside some time and really focus on a proper run. Both this run and the previous run were done on a whim with almost no prep and doing that segmented run gave me all the info I wanted. Now I just need to find the time to get it done.

Updated with a new run I got this weekend, tried something different with the commentary too. Still got some things to iron out though.

Is the damage boost from potency too low to make it of any use for the run? Which I guess is only the bone dragon.

I have found some potentail for Potency in the run but I still have a few things to test. Ripping thunder is devastating on normal with potency equipped so there's part of that thinks it must be viable somewhere.

Love Ripping Thunder and would love to see it be useful somewhere but I just can't remember people ever talking about it being better for anything in particular over the DS or Lunar other than maybe Paz Zuu IIRC. But my memory is pretty much gone for NGB and I think you said Gleaming Blade is better than the VF for Doku, or that a bad GB is better than a bad VF fight so maybe a good one is better?
It's also another, what, 7k essence?
Iunno, just curious.
