Baldur's Gate 3 seems to be defeated in 7 minutes

Baldur’s Gate 3 seems to be defeated in 7 minutes

7 minutes! At least it will take three times as long to complete the character creation. Baldur’s Gate 3 At this point, it may only provide part of the final planned experience, but even that long chunk is summarized in just 7 minutes by speed runner Cary “Professor Palmer” Palmer. He blinks.

As reported by KotakuPalmer explains that his route involves killing nothing, talking to no one, and skipping all quests. All you need is a solid jump leg and a little magic.

The trick is, in fact, to use jump transform spells to triple the hop height, jump over all combat encounters, and skip most of the game’s cutscenes. There is one real test point in that the player needs to make a successful survey check to go through the well to the whisper depth. But after that, it’s a simple case of jumping to the last area of ​​the game and completing the run.

Of course, there is some controversy as to whether this is “counted” as a real speedrun. Palmer is basically not involved in the game plot at all. As the first act of an unfinished game, you don’t even have to worry about Baldur’s Gate 3 having no end to talking anyway. As it stands, his speedrun simply lets his character reach the final point on the map of the game.

But for fairness, Palmer tried a more traditional speedrun. He found it a bit pointless because it had no concrete ending.

“By using the corpses of team members, we were able to find a way to end the most difficult battle in the game before the game started,” Palmer told Kotaku. “I was very proud of that strategy, but when I reached the end of the game, I quickly realized that the storyline wasn’t resolved or continued, and now it’s all tied together. I realized that is actually an option. “

However, in his honor, Palmer noted that he plans to route speedruns for all other quests through Baldur’s Gate 3 flesh and potatoes. It’s a shame I can’t see the character he’s speed-running. As fashionable as us..
