I probably won't be able to play this Saturday, so I'm in the same boat as ML

Sending in about 2 hours. Running it an entirely different day is fine.

An important thing to keep track of is how many non-dungeon items you got from each dungeon. This is useful if you want to save a tricky boss for a bit later without potentially getting punished for it, or to skip doing a boss entirely.

Eastern Palace: 3
Desert Palace: 2
Tower of Hera: 2

Palace of Darkness: 5
Swamp Palace: 6
Skull Woods: 2
Thieves Town: 4
Ice Palace: 3
Misery Mire: 2
Turtle Rock: 5

Spoiler.
Real time 1:33:06, Game time 1:31:43

Light world trek got me early Mitts, started almost every dungeon except Turtle Rock but didn't need to claim a single crystal, was already fully geared out when I got Hammer and Hookshot. Even though there were 3 lamps, it somehow became the last item I needed, but I found it while exploring Ice Palace. Definitely nicer than last time

DONE!
Spoiler.
In-game time: 4:08:51

Early game was pretty nice, I was rolling in hearts (which proved beneficial as I lost like twelve minutes at the beginning scrubbing out lmao). Unlike s1x, I did end up gathering some of the crystals. I was INCREDIBLY determined to find that Fire Rod (or half magic) which killed my time. I also had to take a detour into the Light World for some potions and fairies midway through Ice Palace. I liked not having to go into Turtle Rock this time. Or having to defeat Agahnim that's just such a time loss smh BUT HEY FOUR HOURS IS BETTER THAN SIX HOURS

Much easier seed due to early Flippers and Bow but Ice Palace cost me A LOT of time as I ended up reseting it from scratch because I could not figure WTF key I was missing. (which is why IRL time in the bottom corner is so much higher) I finished Desert Palace in case SUPER BOMB was needed but it was not so that was some more time wasted.

On a side-note, I found Lamp in the Eastern Palace big chest which was cute.

Route details as I went along:
Spoiler.
-Kakariko (had to pay for bombs)
-Swamp, Mini Moldorm Cave
-Back to Kakariko
-Eventually went to Eastern, got Glove (left when I got to dark room)
-Went straight to Desert, got Mitts (left when I realized that killing Lanmolas would only give me Dungeon map)
-Went to Zora, stopped at the grave to of castle escape--moon pearl!--and got the Bow!
-Funny that I paid 100 rupees to the merchant in Kakariko to receive 300 rupees, then paid 500 rupees to King Zora to receive 20 rupees
-Did the first part of Skull Woods Thieves Town (except I knew killing Blind wouldn't give me anything)
-Getting really fed up that I haven't gotten either the Mirror or any Lamp, starting to feel like I missed something
-Decided to do Palace of Darkness...and found both the Mirror and the Flute. Confidence restored.
-Did the Blacksmith and Purple Chest, then checked the medallion spot while there. Cane of Somaria--bingo. Just need Ether to get into Mire.
-Remembered the spot to the left of the Sanctuary. Got the shovel. Went to the Dig spot. Extra bombs. woohoo.
-Flew up to Death Mountain, couldn't progress in the Tower of Hera without the lamp.
-Checked the beginning of Swamp Palace. Single arrow. great. I'm running out of ideas.
-Finally got the hookshot on the right side of the pyramid. Forgot about that spot. Now I can get to East Death Mountain.
-F I N A L L Y got the hammer and Ether. I can clear Swamp now. Hopefully I get Fire Rod or Bombos in there for Ice.
-Arrghus down, but still no fire rod or bombos.
-Just found Bombos. Very mad at myself for not seeing it there sooner.
-LAMP IN ICE, FINALLY
-Kholdstare down. Time to rush through Mire.
-Arrghus down. Anyone else notice that this pendant race was the 3 "giant eye" bosses?
If I had just checked(/remembered) the Pyramid Spot sooner, I could have solved a lot of problems...and if I had just seen Bombos in Lake Hylia, I could have solved even more. Though if I went through Ice Palace and got the lamp, I might have been tempted to try to check Eastern and Hera for things before getting Ether which was ultimately in Death Mountain. But even then, I would have needed to go to Death Mountain right away because I still didn't have hammer.
Little mistakes cost me a lot of time, as well as forgetting the location of a few chests. But, all in all, for my first completed race run, I'm pretty happy.

Were we playing the same seed? Because I did not find lamp in that chest.

There are three Lamps in Easy Mode, just like in the original game.

But how can we look in the same chest and get different items if we're playing the same seed?

My bad
Spoiler.
I said Big Chest but i was remembering wrong/typing like a doofus and it was actually the chest where the Big Key originally is. That's why I said it was cute: I got it right after the easy dark room and right before the dark room with the two Eyegores.

Ahh ok. That makes sense.

Those dark rooms in Eastern are easy, but I feel like I shouldn’t ever have to do anything contrary to the logic. Though I do know how to do Fake Flippers and make cave blocks disappear, in a pinch.

5PM EST on Saturday March 3rd
Easy, Standard, Goal: Ganon
?

I heard people want to challenge the scary blue pig again. We could do it this weekend, or I could push it to next week if people want to practice their Ganons

I believe surplus copies of things like swords, bottles, or lamps turn back into the item they previously replaced, like a red rupee and stuff

Finished

If only I had just gone to Skull Woods earlier...

I actually streamed this one but I got disconnected from my internet partway through, so it's in 2 parts and Skull Woods is missing. Either way, you can now see firsthand just how bad I am. ( I say that, but watching a completed rando? eh...) Maybe next time I'll record it and then just stream the recording...
Part 1
Part 2

^ Wow, that's a pretty sick game time, because...
Spoiler.

I decided to check the first half of Thieves Town right after getting the MItts. It got me 3 of the 4 non-dungeon items inside, so I decided that was fine and went elsewhere. I cleared as many dungeons as possible except Turtle Rock trying to find the last progression item, the Hammer, and it took a good 20 minutes of checking obscure locations before I went back to TT to find it.
