Typically you want the Master Sword in LTTP, but what happens when you Death Mountain descent and decide to temper that nice level 1 sword, before acquiring the Master Sword, well you bypass it and downgrade when you receive the Master Sword.
No Death Run Practice. Surprisingly I finished this pretty quickly today. I namely almost have levels 1-6 down almost perfectly with some trouble spots in world 7 and occasionally a slip-up or two in world 8-3 or the dreaded final hammer bros/fireball in 8-4. Overall I'm satisfied with this run.
This is the end game. I make 3 or 4 trips into Ganon's Lair due to running out of bombs. However with lucky bomb drops from orange wizrobes it maybe possible to make one trip if I was to avoid the red ring and silver arrow. But I'm so use to acquiring both items that I make two trips just for those items. The final trip is for dying at Ganon.
