Author's comments and explanations:
Hello there! This right here is my first TAS. I played at 49% speed, so perfection wasn't sought after.

Tiger Quarry:

aw man, if only that stair glitch would work in more places. So far i've only been able to use it in three spots, and they are all in the Tiger Quarry. If you climb the first stairs you come across in the waterfall room, you can go up above the screen and somehow end up at the bottom. It doesn't help much tho.

A few seconds were wasted after the Dulan fight. I should have unequiped the Power Ring after picking up the sword.

Ilvern Ruins:

Them firebirds sure are anoying..

The fight against Gilan was kinda slow.

Second visit to Tiger Quarry:

Could save some time by taking a hit on the way down.

I have no idea if you have to grab the Mission tablet. You never seem to use it anywhere. hmm.

Eldam Mountains

wasted about 10 seconds before entering Eldam, I could have skipped the trip to the item shop.

I had to spend some time leveling right before Harpy, so that part is easily fast-forwardable.

Ballactine Castle:

O boy, more leveling.

Galbaland's Island:

This place is really short for a final dungeon.

mmbossman: This line pretty much sums up why I'm rejecting this: "I played at 49% speed, so perfection wasn't sought after." We strive to produce movies that would be impossible to replicate in real time, with focuses on both entertainment and technical prowess. Recording a movie at such a speed decreases your control, and produces a sloppy result. Better luck next time.
