    Anyone try a speed run, post-patch?

    Post by Back Lot Basher on Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:46 pm

    I've always wondered about these speed runs...the idea fascinates me, I doubt I have the skill to pull off anything remotely close to average. Just wondered if any of the nerfs had an effect on people's approach to speed runs? Saw one where the guy made good use of the DWGR, which would be moot now. What kind of time do you think an AVERAGE player sets?

    Nahh, I did it with only Fast roll before - set 1 hour 30 minutes. None of the nerfs would affect my time.

    Cool...did you die very often on yours? I'm still trying to imagine pulling this off on some of the tougher enemies like the O&S or the Kings. I'm assuming you do all of it alone, since summoning would take too much time?

    I didn't die once in the 1 hr 31 mins 46 seconds speedrun.

    Hard to explain my route - but the ele weapon nerf would slow the speedrun minorly.
