Master Quest Any% NG+
« on: September 11, 2014, 07:46:29 PM »

Hello, I have found that by playing the Master Quest version of the game, one can complete that game faster, this applies to Any% and Any% NG+.
In Dodongo's Cavern on Master Quest it is much faster to get the bombs using a specific jump slash to recoil off a ledge down to the bombs. Using this trick saves about 2 minutes or so, maybe more.
I have been informed that I cannot post my video which, though it only beat it by 12 seconds (terrible run...), is faster than the current World Record.
Can a Master Quest category be added so I may post this?

This has been known about for awhile, however the community just doesn't do it for whatever reason. (I honestly don't know why). However the category will probably not be added to the leaderboards due to the fact that not enough people play it/have interest in it. This is why categories like All Dungeons NG+ aren't on the leaderboards. Another example is TWWHD 100% (because only me and one other guy have ever done runs of the category). So sorry for the inconvenience, but if you want to submit to the leaderboards for Any% NG+, you'll have to run on regular mode instead of Master Quest. Don't feel discouraged though, you can still run the category if you want to, you just won't be eligible to submit it to the oot3d leaderboards.

Actually, why shouldn't Master Quest runs be allowed if the routes are so similar?

Using a slow version on purpose is your choice, but you will get no sympathy or agreement from me.

If ever there is enough interest in MQ runs, I'm sure it could be added to the leaderboards at some point. Any% would be pretty much pointless though considering how similar they are. I wouldn't mind seeing MQ AD or MST though
