This glitch is probably going to be vital to be able to recreate, and honestly this discussion kind of makes me want to try any% or some funny shenanigans in 100%. If we are defining the category as if the game says 100% after you stop the timer, you're good, then I definitely want to try some things...

Thanks zarcatus, really interested in that glitch (and whether the grasp spell has potential glitch possibilities in other areas / fights)!

I will give the route a go but having tried a magic focussed run earlier today (ran out of time) magic seems far more skill based and tbh I struggled in places. I may try and first crack out a decent any% time using a mixed magic/melee run and ferryman to skip golden boulder, but not skip MB. Just because WEK sounds so difficult magic only.

Jason, I think I will be running any% CD if anything, and zarcatus seems to be focussing on any% CD too, so 100% category definition is your call. I could email the dev potentially to clarify how the game defines in game %age...

Incidentally, just saw this: Probably wouldn't work in a run as the character had been maxed in this vid and I don't think Overseer's fireballs can be rebounded without mageblade, but I will test next time I get a chance.

Just more brainstorming. I saw this video showing how the rift spell could be used to jump to normally inaccessible areas:

I don't think it has any useful application in the run because you don't get rift until late on and none of the late key-locked gates seem like they could be jumped over with this technique, but its just something else to keep in mind.

Edit: Perhaps useful to jump over the right hand wall in the Ice Dwarf arena to skip that boss fight and go straight to the last shard of the mageblade? Unlikely but I will try and check when I next get the chance.

I did a casual run through of the game using the no-MB / magic focussed route and agree that it is potentially very fast.

In case it is of interest, below is the video of my fight with the final boss first stage. It was the product of lots of attempts and I think getting a consistent strategy for this fight will be essential as it is not at all easy.

I also managed to get Zarcatus' glitch on the Master of Chaos as below. It is actually quite consistent and I have replicated it a couple of times. It seems he needs to be baited with some damage (either grasp or bolts) whilst the character is as far into the wall as possible, and fairly quickly he will do the backwards jump necessary to make him clip through the floor and die.

I will try and do a full run soon with this route 🙂

Just a quick one. Using rift you can skip a section in WEK as below. However, you then miss out on a key in that section. The time save is 1:30ish but as it potentially means having to do Bishop for his key (which takes about 1:20), it is marginal whether it is worth it overall.

Hey Guys,
(first of all, two things... First, is this page still acitve? Because the last massage was from two years ago... And I dont want to write to no one:/. And sorry for my bad english, im from a not english speaking country...) I play Swordigo for three years now and I finally discovered that theres a speedrun page for it :‘)
I just wanted to share some (sadly for speedrunning very unnecessary) glitches I discovered in the past few months. I normally have more, but you guys discovered most of them...
1. In the first vid, I used the multi jump power of the rift to jump above the roof of the room where the first boss fight finds place. I think u can also jump into the room with the shade in it, if ur skilled enough... (Im sorry for the ad I forgot to turn off my wifi)

2. In the second one I just wanted to give an example for what grumble already sead (that u can clip threw walls using enemies and pots)

3. This one, is in my opinion the least useful one when it comes to speedrunning. I called the glitch „Speed sword“ because in this glitch u lose ur sword and nearly ur full horizontal speed as well. U want to make sure you dont get in contact with the box from the side after u destroyed it. Because if u do that, the glitchmode will stop. That will also happen if u go in another area.
It also works with other boxes. If it has the right wall...

Thanks for posting! The first two were known of but I have never seen the third, quite interesting.

Although there aren't many active runners, there is a discord that is a little active (hopefully it is linked on the sidebar on this leaderboard). It's always good to see another swordigo fan! I would recommend you give the Up to First Shard category a try to begin with if you are interested in doing runs.

I don't know if any of these are helpful they might be but I decide to show them anyway!
