Shaving a quarter of your time off in just over a week is amazing. There's still a few little things that can save time, but a lot of it is RNG. I'm not sure on what the best time is on this type of run without glitches, but I reckon you would push it.
24:14 is the top time but I'm wasting a lot of time getting Varia Suit, High Jump and Screw Attack.
I want to get sub 36 on the run we're on, and then try stripping away the safety items to see how fast we can go.
Had a few runs on Saturday at a new path without Varia/Screw Attack. It's tough but doable. I was on some really fast times but died twice in Tourian when I didn't get any missiles from the Metroids. I'll get it down soon though. Excited to see what the time is.
First full run of the No Varia Suit path.
It's tougher, but doable.
I got some terrible RNG and still have a lot of time to save in certain areas.
I feel like sub 30 is a realistic goal.
I'll maybe have to ditch the high jump boots but I'm not ruling out being able to make that time with them.
It's a benchmark. It's also the 8th quickest time on All Bosses/Classic that exists.
Can't believe I didn't post this on here, when I got it!
I ended up getting 28:32, when I recorded this take without any commentary, before I went to bed. I started recording all my practice runs because I couldn't risk missing a great time. It's a pretty crazy run tbh, I wanted sub 30 minutes, I didn't even think that a sub 29 was possible.
At the time when I uploaded it, it was ranked 5th in the World on Speedrun.com
