    Default Wizardry 8 speedrun

    Someone published several commented Wizardry 8 speedruns on YT, IM any% actually at 4h 40m,
    and i would not be surprised if he manages to go below 4h.

    Interesting. Had never occurred to me to do a speed run, I think if I ever return to playing Wiz8 I will give it a go.

    Well i did several ingame_time_speedruns through the game when it was young,
    with some things similar to a common realtime speedrun like e.g. kill marten to skip the helm of serinity or rapax rift by running through the lava.

    I did some attempts now with quite easy starting conditions,
    i.e. import party with excellent equipment starting at UBC (spent much time in Wiz7 to get > 200 mystic arrows;)
    but up to now have not managed to go below the 3h mark on IM.


    However bigoo has set a new mark of 3h 28mn for non IM:

    And now it is at below 3 hours on both IM and non-IM. Still need a lot of polishing though

    Just for fun I counted my hours while I played reforged mod: it took 53 hours to reach Ascension Peak. Comparisons to vanilla game may be difficult to make, but I thought I would be nearer to 100 hours than 50. Mostly I knew where to go but there was also some running around without knowing what to do next.

    I guess that those who are interested in the speedrun already know it from other sources, but it should be said that the 2 hours mark has been beaten.
