Hi,

I am wondering is the bananas mode allowed in this category? (It only says difficulty normal) I did a speedrun in bananas mode in about 35mins. If not, can I get a new category?

Thank you!

Nice, stuff!
Hey do you have any vids on the skips you use? When did my run I just watched yours ad copied as much as possible, but you had some really cool stuff in your most recent run that I haven't seen before.
Would be great if you're still around!

Imo that would make an interesting category which can be also split more for some different interesting challenges.
Also the only moderator for this game was last time online 1 year ago, so it might be a good idea to find someone else.

Yeah I'm going to send SR.com a message and see if they can make me a mod

Hi,

I haven't played this for a long time. More likely, I won't spend time to do runs on this, in future.

I do have couple other big skips. For example, chapter 3 last scenario, you can teleport through the gate, or do a super jump flying over the gate to skip the battle. Similarly, you can do super jump, flying over the whole map, at ch 7- 1st scenario, ch 9 -s2 and s3, without touching any story check point. etc...

Also, there are ways to do multiple haste, to boost the time, but the process is not tricky, which probably can only save couple seconds. (I showed all these tricks to one active player on steam, WildMiles? and one player on PS4 online.)

I will leave these to you all to figure out and make videos. 😃

It's very glad to see more and more players coming to speedruns of Magicka 2.

Sound like some pretty sweet skips! It'd be awesome if you made a video or two showcasing them but I'll still try and figure them out.

I lost all videos after reset my youtube channel, but someone saved my last video and posted on bilibili.com ( link: https://www.bilibili.com/video/av19079679?from=search&seid=18404685761830676003). The last trick shows how super jump will work in speedruns.

Bananas mode and Co-op mode categories have been added! Records free for the taking!

I can't seem to get that vid link to work Zhenchao!

I have put the video in my google drive. Here is the link:https://drive.google.com/file/d/10__wWqV7eUr8vwMtbcZDnK-BOgIufeKA/view?usp=sharing
Clearly, WizardRobe did't watch it neither and was rebuilding the wheel on employing super jumps. The current routes is still not optimal. Problem 1 is where and when to apply super jump throughout the game. Problem 2 is what's the best way to prepare super jump, "sacrifice" or "icicle". More water will push you faster.
Based on all tricks I know, an ideal route, 60fps and A LOT of practice will reasonably give sub 18min. Roughly 16min will be the limit if no new big glitches can be found, considering the loading time is always there.
