Did you try dash sliding to the floating platforms that are part of Turtle Rock? I always wanted to try dash sliding to them to see if it was possible to get in Turtle Rock that way

No I didn't actually, it seemed much too far once you're actually up there. I can give it a try though.

We reached those Zora Domain areas way back with some funky shenanigans over at Eastern Palace Area. You might've needed Stamina Scroll for that tho. Those camera shots and such are cool tho.

Also, what I wanted to achieve with reaching the T-Rock area was pretty much exactly what Weegee brought up. Some kind of awesome dash slide to possibly reach the two other T-Rock entrances.

If we could reach the one with the HP, I think at least 100% would have a use for this.
On the other hand, if it's Bee Boost exclusive, it's never going to be used.

It'd be interesting to see if any% could save time with it tho.

So far no success with dashing to the two other entrances. Not even close :/ I got pretty close with a bee boost though and I'm pretty sure with the right position you could bee boost to the roof of the entrance with the heart piece. Will keep playing around with this.

If you'll all remember back when I was trying to skip the Flippers for the whole game, dash-sliding into one of the two auxiliary T-Rock entrances was the number one thing I was trying in terms of accessing T-Rock (before we found the more useful way to activate fake flippers). Never managed to make it work after many, many tries... I honestly think it's too far to work with dash sliding alone. Feel free to prove me wrong ;)

It doesn't seem possible in the slightest :(

Well, that sucks :P I was hoping it would at least be possible in even a TAS.

Thanks for trying though! It would be neat to find something other than Flippers Early with Bee Boosting though :(

Do bees spawn at Death Mountain(s)?
Since it's now sort of confirmed Bee Boost is it's own beeast to tackle, it might be worth checking if it could lead to something there.
There's a lack of OoB around those parts, parring some smaller stuff (Well, I guess Hyrule DM has some decent ones, just not used because we have better stuff anyways)

No, Bee's only spawn from bushes and there are no bushes in either of the Death Mountains.

Most of the OoB's there are useless anyways because all the walls are impossible to merge on. I've messed around there quite a bit with Bomb Boosts and sadly couldn't find anything useful :P

I would still love an ice cave skip though :-X

Yeah, they are pretty bad at not allowing merging, but there's a lot of stuff at DM that's weird.
Like... Deadrocks at the Ore Mine section. Those tend to get stuck on the ledges and stuff. It's weird to see enemies just... glitch themselves out.

That looks new.

Also, really stupid.
Why does this exist.

Par for the course.

So, I wonder how that works. I'm already thinking uses for it.

I've seen this tech before so its not new, and It doesn't have any uses That I can think of for any% ,UNLESS SOMETHING COOL, I'll try using  a trick to actually make this really  good,  so I'll come back later

Hey guys, for anyone who hasn't seen it yet:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEgWVMlqfRI

A new method for skipping the majority of HoG 2F was found! No more precise pixel dash anymore. I'm really surprised a damage boost works on the fan loading zones honestly. I guess bombrodding/damage boosting works on any loading zone above Link

Hey everyone, I found that in Tower of Hera, on 3F if you head to the top-left corner ( walls switch is there) you can bomb-clip into 4F without being kicked out. Method seems reliable. I just wanted to spread this, so, thanks for your time.

Can anyone direct me to an alternate route to get to the other Racing bro near Rosso's route? I am trying to do 65 second, not the 75 seconds.

I'm so happy to see this game still being broken! What an awesome technique too!  ;D

I'll try to find some stuff with it but it seems most of the main spots where this would be useful have already been taken care of. But you never know!

As someone coming from oot, ive got a big preference towards pause buffering. For the two difficult bombrods in the run, in ToH and TR does anyone have the exact frame of the bomb explosion that the rod could be buffered on? Or for turtle rock specifically, the frames for placing and rodding based on the rolling spike? I've seen the pictures on the page for BK skip, but are those general areas to look for or the exact frames, because buffering to them I've still missed clipping through the top.

Unlike other games, pause buffering is very inconsistent in this game.  I'm not sure about the frame data for bombs but I typically look at bomb flashes to time when to use the tornado rod, but looking at flashes isn't a good method either.  For Hera I use the tornado rod when the fourth flash would appear...not when you see it but when you believe it will happen.  For Turtle Rock somewhere between the fourth and fifth flash is when you tornado rod, but bombrodding in Turtle Rock is one of the toughest things to do in the game.
