FAQ for 100% planning
« on: December 21, 2011, 04:36:57 PM »
I wrote a small FAQ that hopefully is useful for 100% route planning. Its goal is to concisely outline when what item/event is available.

I played through the game again when making this, but I made an initial draft using http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii/960633-the-legend-of-zelda-skyward-sword/faqs/63413. Descriptions of locations are often partly copied/plagiarized from this FAQ. This is just meant to be a useful document for speedrunners. Suggestions are always welcome.

*** Shows important items/events. These are required to move on in the game.
() Shows locations. The goal of these is just to distinguish what item is being talked about, not to lead you to it if you have no idea where it is.
[] Shows either the cost of an item or the contents of a treasure.
{} Are some additional notes.
The rest should speak for itself.

Pretty godly so far. I'll use part of this for my any% planning if that's okay. As a reference

Also, I don't think potions need to be included. Maybe not even shield upgrades

This seems good. The upgrades will be a tricky part if you haven't gotten treasures in a former adventure. It seems you planned to get items before the neccesary ingredients are aviable somehow.

Yeah, I assume(d) that such a run will be done in Hero Mode.
