Welcom to the second installment of the "Post your time records and tips for speedrunning Loki's Maze"!  I have to say, they made this version of Loki's Maze very difficult to complete in a short amount of time, what with pulling/pushing statues, Speed Stinger sentinels patrolling the halls of memory, and tricky platforming with very non-generous respawns. 

As of yet, I have run the maze three times in all, and timed myself only once, setting the initial record at 7:39.33.  I know a much better time is possible, as I royally messed up in... just about everything.  I took several wrong turns in the maze, I fell off the platforms multiple times,  I got reset in the halls of memory at least 3 times, probably more, and I fell many times in the "The path to victory is sweet" room.  That room has been made far more difficult to speedrun as compared with Dreadfall's version. 

Anyway, I am certain a sub-7-minute run is more than doable.  I just have to be less bad. XD  Anyway, feel free to share your records and tips!

OH!!

One important thing I somehow forgot to mention:  I am timing my runs starting from the top of the initial stairway, with the door open, and ending at the moment I set foot on the stairway to the reward chest.  Now we're all on the same page. :)

New time!

Guess what?  After doing some testing, I found a few new strats that, being used, allowed me to complete Loki's Maze in...

4:29.22!

Quite the drastic improvement, wouldn't you say?  These new strats are as follows:

  1. The hall with the rolling ornaments: I found that if you enter immediately after one of the ornaments passes you, and run along the inside radius of the hall, you can safely ignore the first two safe spots. It's pretty tight, but doable.
  2. "The path to victory is sweet": In this room, all you have to do is make sure the Terrible Terror is not flying along the left side, so you can quickly jump straight across any of the tiles and get to the exit door without much trouble.
  3. Statues room: I found that you can completely ignore the puzzle in this room.  You just need to jump to bar that the glowing Groncicles(?) are on, and you can jump across their platorms, jump to the last bar protruding from the other wall, and finally jump to the button to open the door.  It's very nerve-wracking, but again, doable.

Now, I'm pretty sure I could set a sub-four-minute record, as I traversed the memory platforms the correct way instead of straight across, got reset in the halls of memory by the Speed Stinger sentinel once and had to go slowly in a few places to avoid getting reset again, and fell off the platforming section a few times.  All in all though, this was a much better run than any (of mine) preceeding it. :)

This was unexpected.

So, I somehow just set a new record of 3:54.93.  I don't know how, since I did nothing differently and messed up terribly in the Terror room (pun not intended, but cool) and the ornaments hall.  Now I'm firmly convinced that I could set a record 3-1/2 minutes or less.  Bring the challenge! >:D

LACK LUNASON

(I figure you've probably already figured that out, but I thought I'd play it safe.)

 

 

    Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.

 

      Here are just a few things that I am:

  1. A procrastinator.
  2. Nice (mostly).
  3. Kind (don't listen to those that say otherwise).
  4. Adventurous.
  5. Lazy.
  6. A dreamer.
  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold clan known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a master farmer.

 

      On the ranking on the forum, I've completed/on the following: Jarl, Forager, Wilderness Explore, Viking Warrior, Dragon Trainer, Drott, Dragon Master, Chief, Berk's Power Player, and......

Quotes I love

 

"Once I set the sea alight with a single fiery breath....

Once I was so mighty that I thought my name was death....

Sing out loud until you're eaten, song of melancholy bliss....

For the mighty and the middling all shall come to THIS...."

"WE WILL FIGHT THEM ON THE BEACHES! WE WILL FIGHT THEM IN THE BRACKEN! WE WILL FIGHT THEM IN THOSE BOGGY MARSHY BITS THAT ARE SO DIFFICULT TO WALK THROUGH WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SHOES! WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER!"

"I sailed so far to be a King, but the time was never right.....

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....

Heroes.......Hearts......FOREVER!

You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

BUT A HERO.....FIGHTS.....FOREVER!"

Grimbeard the Ghastly's Last Song. How To Train Your Dragon: Book 11 and 12. Cressida Cowell.

 

"That's how we're going to win. Not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love."

      That's about it. I give full credit for.....well, everything, to GOD. Have a good day. And, in the words of a Vulcan, "Live long and prosper."

 

Bye for now!

Objective complete!

Well, I did it! I have just run Loki's Maze of Cheer in...

3:29.28!

Again, I didn't really do anything differently; I was just more optomized. :)

Just keep cuttin'

Well, I just improved my record to 3:11.34!  The only difference was that I actually avoided getting reset at all! I believe a record of less than three minutes is doable.  I just need to thoroughly optomize my movement, and master crossing the memory platforms straight across.

I've only managed to get

I've only managed to get 3:55, if the Speed Stingers didn't push me back then it would be shorter.

And we watch as they fall...

Several days ago, I managed to slice my record time down to 3:08.55! I don't remember doing anyhting different; I was probably just more optimized.

And just today, I pared it down to 3:05.09.

Records broken, doubts shattered

YES!!  I did it!  I did a sub-three-minute run of Loki's Maze!  I can't say exactly how long it took me, since my stopwatch didn't immediately respond to the stop button, but it was about 2:59.  I kinda doubt I'll be able to break that record any time soon, although my movement wasn't perfect. 

What new strats?  None.  None at all.  I've just gotten to know the maze and how it works well enough to take crazy risks that sometimes work out. XD  I did traverse the memory platforms straight across, which probably helped. :)

tips

there are ways to skip through some places there is two i have seen the first one is the candy following platforms

all u have to do with the is jump one them really quickly and u wont fall, same for the one after the speedstingers but it is more difficult. 

another tip is with the rolling balls you only need to stop at the second gap and then run strait to the drop.
