GCN Any% (BiTE) (Zora Armor) - ZeldaSpeedRuns

GCN Any% (BiTE) (Zora Armor)

Note that this alternative Any% route is about 23-33 seconds slower than the optimal Any% route with Gorge Void, and about 18-28 seconds slower than BiTE Route without Zora Armor

If you are not consistent with Gorge Void, Rupee Roll, or Morpheel / Zant without Zora Armor, this route probably is the better alternative.

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