Sick run man, nail biter at the end so understandable why you didn't farm.

Here is a quick breakdown, I guessed the health but the end score was a tad higher so maybe it rounds down to where it zeros out I'm not sure.

In game Karma - 108,420
Kill Score: 27,000
Time - 53,693

Total - 189,113 x 2.5 = 472,782

Items, Ninpo and Health:

1 Ninpo - 20,000
2 EOSL - 20,000
2 GSE - 80,000
Health - 260

Total - 120,260 x 2.5 = 300,650

Essence - 3,806 x 5 = 19,030

Grand Total = 792,462

If you could collect all the minions essence with Benediction on UT kills that would total 9,310, that would be 46,550 end game karma. That with the missed UTs in this run would be the record.

Murai did waste quite a lot of time on that run so I'd say 850k as a minimum with the essence is doable.

The biggest thing really is how far you are willing to push farming Murai, the other run had some very fast UT and ET stacks so if you could repeat that and get the essence you would smash the record.

I would say a realistic run to break 850k would be:

In Game Karma: 123,000
Essence: 7,000
Time: 65,000

With full health this would be 850,500 end score, add on one more UT in game if you take a lot of damage so 128k in game.

what do you think would be a reasonable time for that? it sounds like it would be anywhere from 350-450 seconds if i can get that many UTs without Murai wasting as much time as he did

The above breakdown is based on getting the mission at around the 350 second mark, which will be tough no doubt but going by these two runs it's definitely possible.

You just have to keep in mind that if you go over what you're aiming for in terms of time you can make that up with UT's. Getting two UTs back to back on Murai would more than make up going over by 1 minute.

I tested the Lunar UT btw when he summons the dragon, unfortunately he takes way too long to come down to hit him with it. Shame as that would have been a really good way to get UTs safely when he's low health.

yea i tried lunar too and it would be safe but i think the damage is too high as well if you want to farm especially since he takes too long from the dragon
