I had an idea for a new category extension for Link’s Awakening (2019), and I wanted to share it here to hear some thoughts about it.
So the category is called boomerang%, which basically your goal is to collect the boomerang. I think this would be a fun little category since all you have to do is complete the trading line in order to get the lens and the boomerang. I don’t think any of the other categories complete the trading line so I think that’s quite unique.
I would love to hear your thoughts about this!
Well you could skip all of the trade sequence, including Yoshi, and just get the Lens with Rooster if all you want is the boomerang. Would have to time exactly what's faster between just getting the things for Rooster or trading everything + getting hookshot. Unfortunately I can't actually do the tricks needed for the Rooster route so I can't do the timing.
Could also just ban early rooster from this category specifically, so you're forced to do the trading sequence. I think it's a cool category idea.
Edit: Oops I meant to say early lens.. not early rooster lmfao
Wait what? How do you get the lens with rooster? Im interested
I don't have the willingness to spend the time on explaining it myself, the trick is called Early Lens, if you wanna do the research, or maybe you can find someone willing to explain to you in the Discord :)
I'm okay with requiring the collecting of all trade items if the verification team is willing to do that job.
Yea, I dont mind having that glitch in there, I iust thinking collecting the trading items will be a more enjoyable run. Im not too fond of glitches haha
It's a really goofy glitch that was discovered insanely quickly after LAS's release. The only examples I have off if it offhand is this goofy video I made for the discord after it was found, and an example of it being used in practice during an All Secret Seashell's run.
Oh lol that's insane! I don't mind that being allowed, I'll still do the trading line cuz I think that will be more fun :)
