I would like to suggest a new run that requires you to upgrade runes in Hateno Village (Bombs, Stasis and Sheikah Sensor). These are the steps:

1) Get off plateau
2) Talk to Impa (idk if this is required for the run)
3) Upgrade runes (Bombs, Stasis and Sensor)
4) Defeat Ganon? (Maybe)

Maybe you guys can help me improve the idea?

Point 2 - Yes, talking to Impa is required, because you cannot talk to Purah for Rune Upgrades until you've talked to Impa, as all blue fire torches for powering the Sheikah tech are not available, the torch basins do not get loaded in until Impa tells you to visit Hateno, it's a required in-game flag that gets set in the game that checks if you've talked to Impa.

Point 4 - I don't think Ganon/Blights should be required, could be optional however.

I would also make it so any pre-existing setup saves aren't allowed, such as NG+

Game mode can be either Normal or Master Mode.

No Amiibos allowed, with exception of ones that give you Wolf Link and Epona.

Run ends upon last frame text box appears of receiving last Rune Upgrade.

Amiibo are generally blanket no amiibo or amiibo, not certain amiibo are allowed, so there would only be amiibo or no amiibo, not certain amiibo allowed

Thank you Alkaris and wumpus.

Ok, now this is the updated steps:
1) Get Off Plateau (using the Any% way)
2) Activate any other tower (for Sheikah Sensor) (recommend Dueling Peaks Tower)
3) Talk to Impa
4) Get materials to upgrade runes (3 Ancient Screws, 3 Ancient Shafts and 3 Ancient Cores) (Recommend to get it by killing Guardians)
5) Upgrade Runes

the route seems good, a better idea might be activate great plateau tower (before or after paraglider depending on skill level), then blss off to hyrule castle, gather the parts, blss to kakariko, talk to impa, then head to hateno?

I thought for a while, and I think that blss to Hyrule Castle is optional.

There are some shrines that gives you ancient cores and spawns guardian scouts, like the Kaam Yatak Shrine(Trial of Power), Kaya Wan Shrine(Shields from Water) and Dah Kaso Shrine (A Minor Test Of Strength). These shrine are located at Central Hyrule. I think I should change Step 4 to :

4) Get materials to upgrade runes (3 Ancient Screws, 3 Ancient Shafts and 3 Ancient Cores) (Recommend to obtain through Treasure Chests in Dah Kaso, Kaam Yatak and Kaya Wan)

Order :
1) Dah Kaso
2) Kaam Yatak
3) Kaya Wan

You can check to location of shrines here:

Just click the search button and enter name off shrines and click a relevant result to check to location.

I agree, that would probably work better

Sounds interesting, would probably call it plus % or something as you get a little plus when upgrading the rune.

I agree with Kirb788
