It has been virtually three years for the reason that launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and we won’t inform if persons are bored with it or actually into it, as a result of now they’re making an attempt to speedrun the flexibility to make bread within the recreation, often called “Bread%”.
The bread recipe includes discovering Tabantha Wheat, an ingredient discovered by slicing grass within the Tabantha Frontier area, and Rock Salt, gained by hitting Ore Deposits. The present excessive rating, held by Xeryph, is available in at 19:44:700, a lot of which is unskippable cutscenes. Xeryph additionally has BOTW speedruns of “All Canine Treasures”, “Fall Off A Cliff” and “Rake In Lake”, which… properly, you possibly can learn the title, so you’ve got all the data you want.
The speedrun includes the conventional speedrunning techniques: Hyperlink escapes the start chamber by operating right into a wall, climbing up into the void, showing atop the mountain within the Nice Plateau, and operating – virtually bare – in direction of the closest Bokoblin encampment, the place he nicks a pot lid for defend browsing functions. He finds a close-by woodsman’s axe, and similar to that, he is absolutely geared up (though nonetheless principally bare).
With pot lid and axe in hand, Xeryph sprints, clips, defend surfs, stasis-fires and “bullet-time bounces” his means round mountains, shrines, and plains in an effort to get the powers he wants to tug off his plan.
Lastly, he yeets himself over to the Tabantha area, cuts down some grass to get the wheat (which, as he notes within the YouTube description, is a totally random drop and takes some time) after which it is only a matter of dropping off a close-by cliff to seize the salt, and voilà: you’ve got bought your self some bread, child.
Do you assume you may do a greater Bread% speedrun in Breath of the Wild, or do you’ve got a good weirder thought for a BOTW speedrun? Tell us within the feedback beneath.
