I've just uploaded a new version of my Guides to the Sprinter and Speed Racer Conquests.
What is the Sprinter Guide?
A detailed, printable guide that gives you all you need to know -- right when you need it -- to smash the Sprinter and Speed Racer conquests.
What's in the Sprinter Guide?
There are five main sections:
Introductory Notes-- (including explanations of how to understand and use the Guides, and tips for builds, tricky maps, etc)
Town Camper Guide-- (detailed enough that even a monkey wouldn't mess it up)
Runner Guide-- (including maps and strategies for division of labour)
Concise Runner Guide-- (just the essentials, for quick reference during a run)
Time Record-- (to help analyse what went wrong, and for posterity)
The Introductory Notes include separate sections for Runners, the Town Camper, and Everyone.
Do I Need to Read the Whole Sprinter Guide?
You can skip straight to the Guide you'll need during the run. The Town Camper should print the Town Camper Guide and the Time Record. Runners should print just the Concise Runner Guide. Everyone should skim read some of the Notes, to make sure they understand the Guides, and to pick up any Tips they may not have seen.
Where Can I Download the Sprinter Guide?
The quick link is goo.gl/dsru6o (mouse over the link to see the full destination).
You can download the whole guide (and just print the bits you need), or download the individual sections.
I apologise about the two extra clicks for the larger files -- free web hosts...
What's Changed Since Version 2 of the Sprinter Guide?
A whole new section: The Concise Runner Guide. Much easier to use during gameplay than the full version.
Captions on all the maps.
Visual directions for three maps in Act 5 (with proper maps planned).
Contents table showing the different parts of the guide. (You only need to print the bit you'll be using.)
Clearer layout of the Notes (with corrections and clarifications).
Each section now has its own page number prefix, from A to E.
Corrections and other adjustments, based on experience running the conquest a few more times.
Updated target times for Act 3.
What's Next for the Sprinter Guide?
I have some ideas, and some feedback to address. This includes (in rough order of priority):
Adding stylised maps for Act 5, to replace the coloured arrows.
Using GameFAQs to host the files, so every download link is direct.
Rearranging the sections, moving the heavy text to the end.
Adding more icons (like the speech-bubble icon that means "talk"), especially to the older parts of the guide.
Adding more colour cues to the Town Camper Guide.
Using more headings in the Notes, so specific information is quicker to find.
CSS overhaul of my website (it'll never happen: too boring).
Items 1 to 3 are likely to happen during Season 9. Beyond that, I'll tackle things based on feedback and enthusiasm. So let me knowif you like or dislike these ideas (politely), or if you can think of better solutions.
Before any of that, I need to finish off the patch 2.4.3 version of my Kanai's Cube Checklist (possibly tomorrow).
This is truly well thought out and detailed. Although I will probably never attempt this (I play mostly solo or with one other friend) Ive downloaded it and will give it a thorough reading as I await S13
