100% (G2S)

This route is a more advanced version of 100% that implements Grove 2 Skip and faster D/N cycles. It is intended for NA Wii 1.0 only. While PAL and JP versions will work, you will have to clear Cave of Ordeals without floor skips.


Coro TD (Text Displacement) is not required for this route, progression and rupee routing is based around Telma TD instead.

Runs should start with a blank file in slots 1, 2, and 3.

Addenda

Relative difficulty of each of the day-night cycles:

  • Post MDH: has a few minutes of leniency, but costs time to fail because of the Poes at the end.
  • Post AG / Pre-SPR: Quite short. Not tight on time at all.
  • Post ToT: The toughest day-night cycle in the route. It is very tight and has an estimated 30 seconds of leniency. Depending on the player's confidence level with this section, precautionary methods are recommended.
  • Post Cave: fairly lenient and also a good opportunity to grab anything missed, especially Poes.

Some considerations for the Post-ToT D/N cycle (specific to this route):

  • The Snowpeak backup 100R will cost some D/N time as it also passes in the Snowpeak connection cave.
  • Death Mountain to Gorge: If you forgot to place Epona, warp Kakariko Village to call her and ride her to Gorge.
  • Poes that can be skipped and easily returned to later include the Kakariko Gorge Poe and the Connection Cave Poe.
  • Another consideration is to end the night cycle with DMT as those Poes are also easier to return to if missed.

Other Notes:

  • If you miss both the Gorge HPs and Poe, a good time to return is after Cave of Ordeals to grab them in one trip.
  • There are various backup rupees. See GCN 100% addenda for a full list, most of which also apply in this route too.
