*Edit -- oh yeah and got a Silver 'feather'...lol

So close... Got thru the Cleft to the"Bahro Cave" there in 8:01. Hard to believe I can shave any more than 5 secomds off of this since it was a pretty clean run.

Minkata 23:50

Started when I linked in to Minkata from the Library. After that, I have included all day/night cycles, link-outs to Relto and back to Minkata, link to the Bahro cave to get the wedgie, drop through the hole and back to Relto. (Did not get the boots in Kiva four, I thought they might slow me down.. :P )

Ok I've moved the "leader board" to this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26771&p=402225#p402225. You will notice I have 1 post per age and things are sorted afabitalle instead of in "collection order". Also you will not get a rank until there is more then one score for an age.

Ok this is quite interesting to debate...

What Minkata solving is? How do you achieve it?

Theorically, you should check the book in the library, figure out how many footsteps you should do in X, Y, and Z directions then go in Minkata. Walk let say 45 footsteps SW then 34 footsteps SSW then 23 footsteps NE, etc. up until the kiva you want to reach.

Because at this state... no one is solving Minkata correctly, everyone is cheating somewhat. I never heard no one fool enough to do it the intended way.

People are going in straight lines following learned landmarks (if done during daytime).

Some like me don't even get out of Minkata to change day/night cycle... We do it all inside one visit. Those kivas are acting like lighthouses under the night sky guiding us toward them, we don't even need landmarks...Like the the command "/look" tells, we are only 9 days away from the exit :wink:

There's no glitches, no skydiving techniques (LOL that's a flat land anyway...).

So my initial questions stand

Kadish Tolesa : 15:32

Started in Kadish, I did go through the linking book to the gallery and back, went through the linking book to the upper balconey and back, set all the scopes. I did have to do the first floor puzzle twice before it opened up. Got my Tree page, the sparkly, and my Butterflies in the alternate vault (didn't get the hat in there, it's ugly..lol), included all linking times.

Not sure what your goal is.

Are you trying to set some sort of speed record for MOULa?

I don't think there's really much of a goal behind this. It is just in human nature that you compare and compete in a friendly manner. :)

Oh, and regarding a MOULa speed record - that is EXTREMELY hard. Best tactic is:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
  • Find a good day regarding pod portals
  • Do Er'cana and start baking the pellets
  • Rush all other single player ages, making breaks for the pods in between
  • Have a bunch of people do the garden ages, and come in just when they open the door
  • Do the pellet drop, get the code, etc.
  • ???
  • Profit, maybe?
That is obviously close to impossible. The chance of some sort of failure anywhere is just too high - MOULa is large and time consuming. If you wouldn't have the pod portals and the Er'cana pellets, you could obviously be faster. Oh, and you also have a minimum time of a few hours.


I've taken the scenic route, and am not done, so 2+ years at best. I hope to NEVER be done with any age of MOULA or URU. :D

Lets keep in mind that even though this topic is mainly being answered by long time players this STILL is in the Spooler-free-Discussion please remember to put spoilers in spoiler tags, sorry for the inconvenience. ( I thought you could talk about age times without spoilers then realized any technicalities like Annables question will require spoilers to be mencined.)

As for Minkata, you may solve it any 'way' within the rules I have specified. Since walkthoughs are allowed one does not need to read the clues anyway. As also consider part of the fun of this composition to try and get people to figure out short-cuts that cut times down. The reason skydiving and exploiting glitches are not allowed is because not everyone knows how to do them.
