Here's another sorceress run I did last week. 45:09 this time.



Didn't die, which was nice, and had my best a2 clear time. Unfortunately, no great marsh skip in a3 and I wasted a minute in the chaos sanctuary due to sneaky Maghda, which prevented the run from being even better.


Got to admit, I’ll never get anywhere near your times. Very impressive runs and I’ve learned quite a bit from it.

Tried out some casters today, here is my assassin attempt.It's a little bit slower than sorc for sure.My second attempt on sorc was around 48min so ill try again tommorow and post it if its close to 45 min.Suchbalance runs are pretty impressive i don't feel very confident beating even 46 min run.

Managed a 42.02 speedrun with summon necro. Uploading to youtube now, but have super slow internet so it'll take some hours.
Will see if I can get an even better time tomorrow, as there was still a little room for improvement (for instance I had 1 death, and I never found a Dol or above which is really powerful for Necro to make Dol rw boots).

Edit: after 11 hours of uploading with my slow internet, its finally done.

Here's my final sorceress submission @ 42:52



With better play it can probably be brought down a minute, and with better map RNG another minute into the 40:XX, but it's definitely into diminishing returns territory and would take quite a few runs.

An "easy" 1-2min time saving would be skipping the A2 sewers. I tried this a few times but found the XP too unreliable then. Still, it feels like the last possible big free optimisation that either requires good RNG with lots of elites in your way in A2, or finishing the whole thing in the 24-29 bracket, which could be doable.

I had some success with skipping sewers and really quick dive into that dungeon in lost city, there is very high elite density there, often with tons of "pack" elites.
But for this to matter rest of the run needs to be very good and lined up.
Either way results below 45min are very good, impressive runs.
