I did a lot of different gambles and very few of them worked in my favor. A few different times, I grinded rupees to get no progression. My go mode item was the Cane of Somaria, and I didn't check the dig spot until I checked literally everything else possible. I tried to explore Dark World early as soon as I had access but took a couple deaths.

At least I found the hidden sword in Kakariko's supply shack really quickly

5PM EDT on Saturday June 23rd
Normal, Standard, Goal: Ganon, Custom Pick Four


Here's an idea I've been toying with. This will be a custom seed. I will not be running it, because I will set it up based on your own inputs.

After you say you're participating in this, privately message me (wherever you want) where you would like 4 items in the game to be placed ("Hookshot in Kakariko Chicken Hut", "20 Rupees in Eastern Palace compass chest", "Swamp Palace Big Key in the big chest", etc).

- For locations, you must select 4 different areas. For the purposes of this, the entire LIght World overworld will count as one "area", and the entire Dark World overworld will count as one "area".
- For items, you can not select more than one of the following from this group:
Bow, Hookshot, Pegasus Boots, Flippers, Moon Pearl, Fire Rod, Ice Rod, Lamp, Hammer, Flute, Cane of Somaria, Progressive Sword, Progressive Glove, Magic Mirror
- And no more than one from this group:
Mushroom, Magic Powder, Book of Mudora, Magic Cape, Shovel, Bombos, Ether, Quake, Bottle

I will test that this can be completed shortly before the start date. If your item placement breaks the logic, or if you have duplicated someone else's item or location, I will give you a chance to re-submit that placement.

Sound interesting?

Alright, sure. I'll PM you once I've figured out my 4 items.

Looks like I'll postpone this idea and turn it into a regular Normal Ganon seed to be run at a later time (not this weekend)

4PM EDT on Saturday July 14th
Normal, Open, Goal: Ganon


Back to somewhat normality? We can do Open mode this time so there's no hell flashbacks to the key rat this time.

Is Saturday fine, or are there more convenient times?

I'm even more garbage at this game now that I don't have time to practice, so I'll be sitting this one out. I'll be at a housewarming anyway but maybe once I get back, I'll watch anyone who's still going. :3

I know that a lot of the game was gated by a few locations, but man I sitll got pretty unlucky with my choices. I didn't find Hammer in PoD until it was one of the last places I could look, I didn't go into pendant Turtle Rock until I was forced to, and I didn't find the Boots in Spike Cave for go mode until it was the last possible place I could look.

Also Ganon bodied me 3 times

Sorry, I'm going to DNF this seed. I got pretty fatigued about 2 hours in, mostly due to my bad routing.

edit: looking at the VOD it looks like Kat and s1x watched a bit! Thanks for stopping by and sorry I couldn't play better.

Oh, no worries. I would have stayed longer but my internet crapped out.
