As a fan of this run, its runners and wanting to learn it myself some point down the line I am a little conflicted. I see the need for it to be banned as I share the opinion of Hoishin, anything that effects the game should not be allowed, I know the port has bad FPS issues but thats part and parcel of the game surely? Again though my opinion is biased as I have an intel build and when running a game I like to run categories that have a lot of runners, I don't feel as satisfied with a good time if there isn't much comparison/competition and I fear splitting the leaderboard would lead to making each category for PC looking barren.

EDIT: just seen a decision has been reached already so ignore my slow ass Kappa

oh you mean the menace dungeons, there is one in most dungeons you need the secret key for them from a side quest where you are required to complete all the optional dungeons, search "A menace sleeps below" quest, this are the ones with a crap tons of floors and ye the final one has 100 floors

costlemark tower i believe you are on about, it has the level 52 Jaberwock as the final boss, its a dinosaur type enemy and it drops a royal arm? if so it is Costlemark, it is in the Fallgrove area of Duscae, it looks like coliseum and the entrance is only accessible at nigh

what is it that actually prevents him flying away? is it hitting him as he is forming the bubble I assume?

@pretends2know I unfortunately don't have the route, I spent months routing it and the actually attmpted it and the trophy for getting gladiolus survival skill to level 10 is what killed it. I had every trophy at around the 17 hour mark, except this one and the real problem is this trophy. The Skill only levels up when Gladiolus and the group walk, through most of the run we jump, use the car, chocobos meaning when I had every other trophy he was only level 4. I tried doing the whole run running every where but It took me close to 3 hours to do chapter 1-2 doing this and then run would be very long and boring. If I remember correctly I timed running from Lestallum to the Duscae gas station and it was close to 40 minutes. The run would either be boring to watch or a case of a fun run which ends with us using rubber bands to run in circles for hours. I put it to the community and showed clips and we all said it isn't feasible due to this one trophy sadly. Also I used to be very active in discord but the update recently messed it up on my laptop

just as a side note I routed plat% a while back and learned that the "my car is broken" quest is an infinite quest, the guide apparently confirms this. So there are a handful of NPC's that have broken cars and need the repair kit but after a while the quest refreshes and the same quest can be obtained and done infinitely so it would need removing. Further more this would mean doing all dungeons as those are quests, all the MSQ, The menace dungeons (good luck routing that without the ring of the Lucii) the adamatoise fight, All Vyv photo quests, all quests in insomnia if your playing royal edition, and the cup noodle quest, all of Whiz's chocobo quests the cactuar quest for Talcot, all fishing quest, All Sonia quest, all Dave quests, all weapon upgrades for Cid, the weapons of legend quest line (involves some very high level foes including Neglafar), Takkas quests, the 3 vendors in Lestallum all have quest chains, Every campsite tour quest, All imperial Bases (all but one are MSQ) all photo points for Prompto, the treasure map quest, all royal arms as those have quest but most are tied to dungeon quests. So its a huge undertaking and will pretty much be close to a 100% category, if you want to be really pedantic hunts fall under quests so they could be included but the community would have to deliberate on that and would most likely rule in favour of omitting hunts from the category.

ye I am learning this on and off and have only one cycled him once despite using both strategies outlined in Ya boy B trues youtube tutorials, I get in the right number of single hits combos and blizzards but he still seems to fly away, I am also on PS4, this and getting antisora in a loop are what is stumping me, but I think antisora is a personal timing thing for me but the Jafar fight seems odd as I am 100% executing the strategy right and have even watched the tutorial countless times and the video looks similar to the game when I do it but he is simply forms his bubble and flys away where as in the video he gets hit whilst forming the bubble and stops summoning it, in my game I hit him as he is summoning the bubble and he just carries on any way

I have riku 2 in a loop no problem but I really can't get anti sora in a loop, I know I am meant to strike when his left foot comes back forward and I feel like I do but he still disappears, I had the loop once for a few hits. I am finding the route fun and easy except this, as for arial combos I am giving up till I have played the game enough. I really hurt my hand yesterday trying to do it fast enough lol

also new to this run dude, doing my first run soon and I am sure it will be shocking but I will still post it. I run FF15 and now have a top 5 time. My first run was a shocking 6 hours, I love having it posted though its fun to go on obsolete runs and see the progress my PB's have made, so you will be happy you posted it to look back on when you improve :)

EnglandEtrostormborn125 years ago

I can beat him comfortably using the recommended Strat its just a little over 2 minutes. I picked up tricks fast in FF15 which is the only thing I ran so will try my hand at the jump combo, I sort of figured out how to do it but the speed at which you have to mash is crazy. thanks for the advice

EnglandEtrostormborn125 years ago

Hi all new to the game and learning the beginner any% route but having some difficulty getting a fast anti sora. the strategy as described in the notes is way different to that start used in the video provided by the notes as the video makes use of stop. I watched mists current WR and he uses some wired jump and hit combo to trap him in a corner. I tried to replicate this and sora won't jump as fast as mist seems to what gives with this fight

EnglandEtrostormborn126 years ago

Hi all I managed to get my hands on the PSP version of the game and thought I would do a casual run but the PSP any% notes seem to stop after the ice cave, is there any plans to finish them?

EnglandEtrostormborn126 years ago

Hi, all I am looking to run this game, I only have the ps1 origins version of the game and I am aware that the loads are a lot slower on that version but it's all I have. I don't know which guide or route to follow in the guide section can someone point me in the right direction

EnglandEtrostormborn126 years ago

I am currently routing a Plat% but its ging to be a while as I am busy with my final year of uni and pushing for sub 5 any% before the end of the year. Eventually I will get around to it but its looking ike a normal any% run and then a lot of using the ring and picking up items to get the gil for elixers, so nothing to out their
