Limcube has been making content material on YouTube since July 2018. Primarily recognized for speedrunning video games similar to Breath of the Wild and Tremendous Mario Odyssey, Limcube has overwhelmed Nintendo’s open-world Zelda sport to hell and again. Proper now, he’s performing an all quests speedrun which, because the title suggests, requires that Limcube completes each Breath of the Wild quest earlier than placing Calamity Ganon six toes underneath. With over 6,000 hours within the sport and loads of time on his fingers till Tears of the Kingdom drops on Could 12, Limcube thought it’d be humorous if Hyperlink obtained all of the hoes within the Nice Plateau.
A speedrun designed out of desperation
In a March 15 livestream, Limcube stated he “made this [all hoes speedrun] up out of desperation” as a result of he wished to do a “cool, quick run.” He informed Kotaku over a Discord name that he practiced 20 to 30 instances earlier than finishing it in 29 minutes and 40 seconds. Previous to ending, the run began like each Breath of the Wild playthrough: within the sport’s principal area, the Nice Plateau.
After leaving the beginning shrine and snatching the Sheikah Slate, Limcube started amassing some fast gear and supplies. This included the weak Boko spear and Pot Lid defend, in addition to some spicy peppers for therapeutic. He carried out a couple of defend clips and the flying BLSS approach which permits Hyperlink to simply go by means of partitions and soar by means of the air, respectively. These maneuvers made up the muse of Limcube’s all hoes speedrun, as he phased into shrines and zipped across the Nice Plateau with ease to get the runes (bomb, cryonis, magnesis, and stasis) that make traversal simpler. It’s right here, after being set unfastened within the mountainous area, that the run actually began. He launched himself utilizing the wind bomb transfer, a glitch that catapults Hyperlink a number of toes into the air with tons of pace, to search out the primary hoe tucked away on the base of a tree within the Satori Mountain. He then picked up one other couple of hoes stashed on the Hateno and Kakariko villages. All of the whereas, he’s amassing Koroko seeds to extend his stock. In any other case, he couldn’t maintain all of the hoes.
Preventing for the hoes is tougher than you assume
Whereas gathering the majority of the sport’s 11 hoes was comparatively simple, as Limcube solely needed to discover them mendacity around the globe, he informed Kotaku that 5 of the hoes have been laborious to get as a result of blue Bokoblins have been utilizing them as weapons. Since it is a speedrun, Limcube didn’t stage up or gather any armor to lift his defenses. As such, he stayed on the minimal of three hearts all through all the run. And since blue Bokoblins are more durable than normie purple ones, a single hit from their golf equipment and pitchforks may ship Hyperlink to the grave. As such, “one of many components that was tough on this run was discovering a powerful weapon early on” to steal the hoes, Limcube stated. Fortunately, with the Golden Claymore he discovered within the Satori Mountain, he made quick work of each Bokoblin he encountered.
After dashing by means of the Nice Plateau and bodying any Bokoblins he got here throughout, Limcube completed the all hoes speedrun in underneath half-hour. Limcube stated that together with being bored and determined, he actually wished to strive a brand new speedrun, one thing completely different that nobody has performed earlier than but.
“Af first, I used to be considering of all these severe concepts, like amassing all of the armor or amassing all of the legendary weapons similar to these you get from beating the dungeons and all that,” Limcube stated. “However all the things didn’t sound that enjoyable. So, my thoughts went to meme speedruns just like the one I did in 2020 the place I obtained Hyperlink laid as quick as potential. Then, I began considering of different humorous concepts for runs and, for some purpose, I got here up with this all hoes one. Wonderful pun, tremendous inventive. There are 11 farming hoes within the sport, so I knew it was going to be comparatively fast. So, I simply plotted the route out after which, like, randomly did it.”

Now that he’s performed with this speedrun and biding his time till Tears of the Kingdom comes out in Could, Limcube goes again to the all quests problem he’s presently embarking on. He hopes, although, that his Breath of the Wild meme speedrun evokes different creators to get all of the hoes sooner than him.
“I’m excited to see if anybody else picks up the [all hoes speedrun] and optimizes it,” Limcube stated. “Stuff like that’s at all times enjoyable to see.”
