  4.  
  5. The following comparison assumes NG+, but is relevant to other categories as well.
  6.  
  7. - Route 1: Reset for any rain before Spring 14 to ensure all CS completed by the second Saturday, gifting every day except Thu.
  8. - Route 2: Gift Wed/Sat only.
  9. - Timings are from gaining control after sleeping, until inputting "sleep".
  10.  
  11. TIMING
  12. - Shop talk: 1m17s
  13. - Wed gift+talk: 55s
  14. - Sat gift+talk: 37s
  15. - Sleep: 2.5s
  16. - Route 2 saves an interaction (15 vs. 16)
  17. - Ideal run on Route 1 has its last interaction on Wed Spring 24. This means:
  18. > 3 Wed (165s)
  19. > 2 Sat (74s)
  20. > 11 shop (847s)
  21. > Total 18m6s
  22. - Ideal run on Route 2 has its last interaction on Wed Fall 6. This means:
  23. > 8 Wed (440s)
  24. > 7 Sat (259s)
  25. > 42 extra sleeps (105s)
  26. > Total 13m4s
  27. - Thus, a run on Route 2 would have to lose another 120 days to bad rain luck before Route 1 is faster (impossible, obviously).
