Trying to see if anyone wants to try this new speedrun I came up with.

Requirements: Kill one of Each Guardian, including; Stalker, Skywatcher, Decayed, and one each of the Minor, Modest, and Major test of strength guardians.

I also thought it would be cool for you to have to obtain at least one guardian weapon or shield but thats completely optional.

Its a cool odea but perhaps bulking out the ideancould help. Such as adding get a set of guardian armour or something thats fun and gives the run a bit of length. I think that its a cool idea! Next is to define the rules clearly and get 5 people to run it!

I might run it because it seems pretty fun and i love relatively short runs.

Keep in mind @GamerAlecGamerAlec that currently this is not an official run on the leaderboards and the rules have not been fully defined. It might be a good idea to define the rules before starting the routing process. Good luck!

Alright, I've fleshed out the rules.

Kill at Least one Skywatcher, Stalker, Decayed, and each of the test of strength gurdians.

Obtain 1 Guardian type Shield, sword, and bow (This includes Anything bought from the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab)

Obtain the full set of Ancient Armor; upgrades are optional.

Hey, Since this is my first speedrun i dont know how to get the speedrun approved and i cant seem to get help from anything on the site, would anyone happen to know?

EDIT: There probably is somewhere where i could find some sort of explanation but I legitimately can not find anything on the subject.

now that you have defined the rules, you need to get 5 different people (including yourself) to complete a run following the rules and record it. you can then take the recordings of those runs and post them to the category extensions thread to be reviewed by the people who deal with adding categories. here's the link to that thread: https://www.speedrun.com/botw-extension/thread/k8n3e

Also another thing to think about is the routing. The armour and other items require ruppes and ancient parts to aquire. So you may need to think about how you are going to get them. The push a guardian 2 map squares gliych is and option but killing guardiams is also potentially viable. You would need to time both and find the fastest route.

also, @Aquatic_OxAquatic_Ox are you including the guardian turrets?

I didnt think they were strictly necessary because they are only found in one place on the map. (Two if you have the DLC from the Mipha Storyline that i know of.) However i was considering it.

i mean, i was doing some routing the other day and it might be faster to do the dynamic guardian glitch to gather certain parts needed for the armor and bow. (the other items can be gathered from the shrines) So you could kill the guardian turret while grabbing the dynamic guardian from hyrule castle.

or the new dupe glitch? for armor/bow/other stuff

You can only get a max of 15 of each item using that glitch and its much faster to either farm guardians or use the dynamic object glitch
