Author's comments and explanations:
VBA rerecording 19.3 was used for the creation of this TAS.

This is my first TAS, and I decided to improve OgreSlayeR's "full" Circle of the Moon TAS. This is an improvement of 2540 frames (42.3 seconds) over the previous submission.

I get a Cotton Robe from an early enemy to get more INT, which let me have the DSS-combos active for a longer time, and also gives me a slight DEF-increase. This robe allows me to take a different route, which is a great timesaver. I also visit one less save room than the previous run does. I take a smaller detour in the first room of the Machine Tower, where I have to wait next to a Fox Hunter for a couple of frames (Around frame 23850, where I have to wait for the moving platform to lower itself). This move itself gains me 22 frames.

Other improvements:
