Has anyone been watching and/or attempting these challenges?
For those who don't know, Etho has recently posed two new speed challenges which look really fun. They are number 5 and 6 in his series of speed challenges.
Number 5 is the Companions Speed Challenge in which you must tame a Wolf, tame a Cat, craft a Snow Golem, craft an Iron Golem, and get them all together in the same place as quickly as possible.
Number 6 is the Brewing Speed Challenge. This challenge is to make all of the main potions as quickly as possible. The 9 types are Regen, Healing, Fire Resistant, Strength, Speed, Slowness, Harming, Weakness, and Poison.
The challenges pretty much have the same rules, which is that the difficulty must be Hardcore mode and there must be no use of F3 and no use of beds. In other ways, there are small differences like not using structures for the Companions one but these are explained in the rules for the particular challenge.
I've enjoyed watching these videos and also watching other people's attempts! It inspired me to try myself and also to record it for YouTube to see how well I could do.
I had a lot of fun and basically wanted to start up this thread so that others could find out about and attempt the challenges. I'd be really interested to see what times people can get. Perhaps we could have a little forum competition!
Also, I know that there are other speed challenges that Etho set some time ago, such as Kill a Ghast, but I'm not sure what they are so I haven't listed them here. If someone more knowledgeable lets me know the other challenges, I will edit this opening post and add them in.
Objective: Brew all 9 main types of potions as quickly as possible. The 9 types are Regen, Healing, Fire Resistant, Strength, Speed, Slowness, Harming, Weakness, and Poison.
Rules: No F3 and no beds.
