Finally got around to doing this. This is a lot better than having to write everything down. Every shortcut I know is documented in video form. Facility, Oasis, Yemen, and Old Quarter do not have any shortcuts at all due to verticality or because the way the jumping works doesn't allow you to do anything similar that you see in the video. This took awhile to make so PLEASE check it out. If you already knew all of these, sorry, not everybody does!
First reaction: ZOMG! 30 minute video!
But as soon as I started watching, I just found myself at the 25th minute. It is so greatly laid-out and an awesome video to learn some tips from. Really appreciate the effort that has gone into making it, and thanks for sharing these awesome tips and tricks.
They really are beneficial.
You taught me 4 new ones, though I know a few you didn't mention.
Molten Ruins note: You can climb up to the first floor using the left cover. It just requires you to turn your character a bit after you jump on that cover.
But all the same, good video.
