Author's comments and explanations:

The speedy warrior "!" is back after a year, to repeat his quest faster than ever.

Changes from Genisto's last run (18:43):

  1. Didn't buy herbs, went first against all 4 metal slimes, took a different path to get Erdrick's Token: 27 seconds saved
  2. Faster Goldman fight: 1 second (70 frames)
  3. Faster Axe Knight fight: 1-2 seconds (100 frames)
  4. Faster Dragonlord fight: 2 seconds
  5. Other (luck manipulation): a few more frames
Total gain: 32.5 seconds

Other than the first part, the route through the game stayed the same ... everything new I could think of would have been slower, which I guess is a good thing if it means the run is very close to perfection.
