Author's comments and explanations:

In this final installment of the famous Phantasy Star series, the protagonist, while out on a routine assignment, uncovers evidence pointing to a sinister threat to the entire solar system. One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil. Such a quest would normally take at least ten hours, but with copious amounts of luck manipulation, it can be reduced to just under an hour and a half. Yes, yet another improvement. It had been a while since some people had found new ways to improve the game, namely escaping Igglanova and skipping the spaceship "docking" sequences. I finally decided to get back to it after the menu glitch run. After careful planning, here are the major changes

But sadly, I had to catch up all these levels before the Juza fight. I fought slugs in the cavern leading to Kadary, which still put me at a -125 frames advantage over the old run. But then...

Suggested frame: 10318, escaping Igglanova

Possible improvement: better luck overall in fights, especially PD and xe-a-thul

ThunderAxe31: Judging.

ThunderAxe31: Accepting as improvement over the current publication.
