Flamicia and Hamada (me) of Orien completed a TR in 26 hours 55 minutes, starting Tuesday Dec 20 and ending Monday Dec 26. We had 20% XP potions as well as a 20% XP holiday bonus the entire time. We demolished our previous record of 37 hours. Our quest path was similar to the 37 hour TR, except we've completely eliminated Sorrowdusk and all but one quest from Tangleroot. Some of the one-of quests we typically do during a TR (like elite Fear Factory and elite Crucible) were skipped as well. The contributing factors for speeding up our TR time dramatically: Having a full group of self-sufficient people who knew the quests and could follow directions when we split up.
Congratulations to Flamicia. This was his 16th (and last) life before Completionist. It's been a blast TRing with him the past 5 lives.
Many thanks to our TR companions this life: Mitwo (completionist monk), Ixtli (pale master), Ironmaw (fvs melee) and Vrac (pale master). This was the most fun TR we've done yet!
