All Dungeons

Runs should start with a blank file in slots 1, 2, and 3, as all files are used during the run.

2-Trip Eldin

Completing Eldin Twilight in 1 trip means getting the boomerang after Eldin Twilight, which makes the more beginner-friendly Bomb House Skip as human impossible. An alternative route completes Eldin Twilight in 2 trips, which allows for human Bomb House Skip and is slower only by a small amount of cursor movement on warps:

  • In Eldin Twilight, after saying 'Yes' to Midna at the cannon in the sanctuary basement, warp N. Faron
  • Ending Blow through Zora's Domain warp portal as described in the route above
  • After Zora's Domain warp portal, warp Kakariko and finish Eldin Twilight (from Malo Mart bug onward)
  • After Eldin Vessel complete, warp Death Mountain and routes merge (⮤ return to route)

Ice Boost

Using ice boost in SPR incurs the following route changes:

  • Skip small key in SPR before Ice Block Clip
  • After acquiring the ball & chain, exit Darkhammer's room through the same door used to enter and use the ball & chain to break the ice wall to access the window used for the boost
  • After Ice Boost, LJA to other side of courtyard and routes merge
  • To have 120R by the end of Goron Mines to buy the bomb bag from Barnes, look for rupees in the bedroom key room, get the three yellow rupees outside Goron Mines, and open the purple rupee chest behind Elder 3 inside Goron Mines
  • All 3 red rupees mentioned in Arbiter's Grounds will likely be required to reach 300R to pay Fyer (⮤ return to route)
