(I have done a new run as ranger on BBI, will submit when it will be upload on YT)

But I would like to know if there is something with your character weight and the "launch" of the cutting winds, because I am feeling I am going faster than the person in the other run with it, also if the gale harness, but maybe it is just a feeling, or one of the augment I have.

Anyway, thanks to peoples doing speedruns of BBi, and more largly of DDDA, I am taking infos from your runs.
(Credits to LiquidBlight for that new way at start.)
Have fun.
See you.

Edit : Inventory seems not have effects on. Don't want to do run a new character right now for know that.

Shearing Wind, the third upgrade of Cutting Wind you get from the daggerist's jewelry set, is faster than running and used primarily in the New Game Plus speedruns. It is also unaffected by weight. I'm currently looking for a way to implement Gale Harness into the mix, but the casting time far outweighs any use of it - except in, perhaps, the Griffin fight. However, most speedruns are done as Strider due to the skill Mad Dash being used to ensure players dont accidentally kill an NPC in Gran Soren, so Gale Harness likely is out of the run

The run is just submitted, try to see where maybe I am feeling faster as Ranger.
Thanks.

I will check it out after school! I'm a little busy but it won't be long

So my augments are :

Morbidity
Dexterity
Bloodlust (Asura? in french)
Grace
Flow
Leg-Strength

It seems they haven't any effects on that "launch".

With the lightest character, Gale Harness seems faster, so those augments and weight could do a good Assassin too, but as the Ranger throws ten arrows maybe Assassin couldn't do enough damages.
I would like to know if the number and timing of Gale Harness are the best possible or if it could be improved.

Sorry for the time of the vid compared to the time of the run and the problems it gives to see clearly the difference of speed, Assassin with Gale harness seems to be still faster, but maybe a run could help to know.
(My toaster didn't burnt anything, at this moment, thanks.) (Will try to edit for have segments etc. But with that "Vanilla" soft I am using for editings, sounds like a pain to peel that.)

The keys idea you had is good, but have to try, and doing some files and folders for have a clear way to save everything is not an option I think.

My idea for getting 2 keys is starting a hardmode run, grabbing the key, leaving hardmode, and starting another hardmode run and grabbing the second key. From there, you have 2 void keys off the bat with any speedrun. Other than that, the sheer power of the ranger likely does outmatch the speed of the assassin. Only a ranger could destroy the gazer that fast, for example.

I think Assassin can do better, with the Assassin's ring for Gale Harness (60 seconds instead of 30?), just saying.
(I have some, but dunno really know how it works for trade etc haven't done it anymore.)

For damages, maybe there is some solutions.

(Have to admit, I don't really want to do stuffs with keys, I like doing it within going to take the keys.)

I think the biggest way to make BBI faster is removing the key obtaining
Also, assassin could be good. Only way to know is test it

Yes, probably, but I don't want to do it, when I did it the first time, it had sense for me, "running in darkness" or something x) (And I should not laugh at it...) so I have no problem with having world record or not, I think the speedrun mode has a real sense in BBI too, but it is just my opinion.

I don't want to do it as Assassin, and hmm... Have to admit the video of "fardo_boingin" (such a name) is still a mystery for me, hope it will be solved a day.

And I am about to run my life in the normal mode, and I don't know if speedrun will be a part of it, so I prefer to keep that I just did there, for remember that probably, or... I don't know.

Flyoutfate is right, you can keep the key in hard mode to advance to the next area (get the key -> new game in hard mode without using it).
Just by doing that, you can easily break the world record, and daimon can cut down your HP in two shots if you are a ranger. This is not difficult to do, and will work 100% of the time as long as you know exactly what you're doing.
I can send you a video via discord if you want. (I currently have a lvl 200 character data).
