      Wizard101 Speedrun?

      Complete all main storyline quests in the game.

      Should it be solo? or perhaps with 3 other storm school characters?

      How would you imagine it being done?

      Re: Wizard101 Speedrun?

      I can't link it, but these already exist on a certain website dedicated to speedruns of games. They just added a new Krok% category too, and the Wiz speedruns are actually pretty active especially recently.


      There's also a page for Pirate101 if you're interested, but it's a dead speedrun page. Only has a few runs recorded.

      EDIT: decided to add an image. I don't *think* there's anything that I'm not allowed to post in this. Depending on the run there's more school variety, but Harvest Lord% is pretty basic and Storm is essentially the one you have to go with. There's other categories listed under Misc. and Level Leaderboard as well.

      Re: Wizard101 Speedrun?

      I feel like a W101 speedrun really comes down to the likelihood the individual is first in battle, which means less time will be used for the enemy's spell animation. Or the likelihood an enemy fizzles their attacks, which saves something around 10-15 seconds that are valuable to the speed runner.

      I really jus created this thread because I thought of a scenario where a speedrunner can just port to various friends waiting in different NPC locations, thus reducing the amount of time is used for walking (using a 50% speed mount) and also having 3 maxed out storms obliterating every single battle during the first turn. I feel like if that were possible, perhaps completing something like a HarvestLord% is far quicker than 20min. Repeating this all the way until the end of the game, would definitely be considered a special world record

      What you'd be describing there is something of a 'new game plus' mode. For most speedruns, at least as far as 'getting max storms to help'.

      Also 50% mounts likely aren't allowed (though not sure, haven't checked the rules in a while) as they'd be considered a 'pay-to-win' advantage. Mounts you can buy for gold though should be fine, as should mounts given from quests. Also, speedruns wouldn't allow use of shared bank because, again, gets into the 'new game plus' category.

      Definitely strict rules. Under the official speedrun rules (at least, official in terms of what you can submit to that website), you:

      aren't allowed any help (unless it's co-op, then it's 1 other player following all the same rules, which means no tping to waiting players);

      must change to the emptiest realm available after battle if another player joins your battle;

      have to start from a fresh character;

      can't use the shared bank nor crowns items;

      can't use any mounts except the 1 Day 20% broom rewarded from the Rattlebones quest, and the 1 Day 40% dromedary from the Fragments of a Key quest;

      can't use the bazaar or crowns shop (bazaar can be easily manipulated by other players, so too easily abused);

      can't use any glitches, exploits, or third party programs (this is more for the safety of the player; glitches and exploits would actually be allowed if KI allowed them, but in an email between KI and one of the run moderators, they were pretty clear that any player caught doing these on video would be banned).


      There may be other rules that are category specific, but all of these rules exist to keep the runs fair. There is a lot of general game RNG and that does get annoying sometimes in runs, but these rules keep any possible P2W element out of it.
