A considerable improvement over my 18:33. It didn't come easy thanks to a lot of risky moves, mostly herding and skipping monsters. It's still crude and full of embarassing moments, but the map is far too intimidating for me to polish the run. Perfecting a route could take months, so I leave breaking 16min, 15min, etc. to the following generations!
On the way back from the massive YK battle I almost missed a caco - if it didn't shoot me in the back, I'd never notice it hiding in that secret area. I'm very happy with the baron battle, that went smooth.
