Finally managed to finish it this morning.
Spoiler.

Really wish I would have dipped into Skull Woods sooner... hookshot AND bow, yowza.

I pissed away SO much time in Ganon's Tower...like, probably upwards of an hour. Couldn't find the big key because I forgot about that bomb-able wall in the warp tile room. Just wandered around like a moron in the basement forever. Oh well.

My other major time losses were dying to Vitreous twice (really stupidly, too--I could have used the Cane of Byrna), and falling down on Moldorm 1 a whopping 7 times.
I really just need to work on dungeon memorization (Mire still takes me forever, and don't get me started on Ganon's Tower) and overworld movement/routing. I'm glad to finally have finished one of these seeds, though.

Still, very happy with the time, which is automatically a PB (since I've never done a Defeat Ganon run before--save for my first time running the Randomizer last year, which wasn't for speed.)

What do you think about this:

6PM EST on Saturday March 10th
Easy, Standard, Goal: Triforce Pieces


We can go back to Ganon next, but in between, let's see how this goes. In Triforce Piece Hunt, some of the items are now fragments of the Triforce. When you find a certain amount of them, you instantly win. The amount needed depends on the difficulty:

Easy: 10 out of 30
Normal: 20 out of 30
Hard: 30 out of 40
Expert: 40 out of 40
Insane: 50 out of 50

The Easy version goes by extremely quickly. My record is less than 25 minutes on a seed that required me to climb Aghanim's Tower. It starts normally, but when you're 1 or 2 pieces away, the strategy should shift to finding dense areas of chests rather than smooth routing. Every second will matter in this mode!

Spoiler.
Claimed the 10th piece at 33:32 real time, 33:03 game time.

With the help of the Flippers as the first item, the light world check + Eastern got me 9 of the 10 pieces. From there, it looked like I had no choice but to challenge Aghanim. Final piece I got was midway into PoD

Spoiler.
34:43 in-game time.

Looks like you and I had the exact same routing ideas, S1x. If I had routed PoD smarter and gone straight for the basement, I think I could have beaten you. But hindsight is 20/20, I gambled going to the right first and it didn't pay off.

Saw times and times only and became v psyched out bc I thought it was set to Normal. Running the seed now, not streaming or anything though.
Spoiler.
57:13
Had the same logic as s1x/ML, I think, but not realizing that I could do part of PoD without the boots killed my time. Also, I decided it would be a good idea to grind for rupees so that I could buy King Zora's heart. Oops.

Because of the logic update just yesterday to v29, I'm going to wait until the weekend after to start a VGF seed. The new Retro variation sounds cool

Awesome. This also gives time for my Cactuar shirt to get here (shoutouts to Fangamer!)

So how about:

5PM EST on Saturday March 24th
Normal, Open, Uncle Sword?, Goal: Pedestal


Now that Open mode and randomized swords aren't tied together, want to try a run like this (Uncle is guaranteed to have a sword)? Or do we want to be bolder and start with Random Swords and possibly go weaponless for 30+ minutes?

Yeah, I'm good with that. It'll be the last one I can do for a few weeks, btw.

I’m good with both Uncle Sword and Randomized Swords. I’ll defer.

I probably shouldn't as I haven't had a chance to play around with the logic yet (although I will be able to today).
