The time is 5:35, but the video shows me finishing the nexus at 5:28
Evidently there's a few seconds delay between the time posted and when the nexus is actually pushed.
I tried to smooth out some kinks with the run, but ended up getting 5:35 again on another try.
1. lost a creep to tower at the first wave
2. accidentally cleared 3rd wave so my cannon wave met under their tower
I was really lucky in this video because I almost died so many times to tower shots. The 2nd time I got 5:35 was somewhat safer, and better, but still posted the same time for several reasons. I smoothed out those 2 kinks and found that doing so won't help your time, and in many cases, actually make your run slower.
As far as I know, clearing the early towers faster doesn't help your time because the nexus turrets will ruin your day. The only way I can see to make the run faster is in the nexus section. I haven't bothered to look at the numbers in detail, there might be a rune/masteries setup that gives higher dps for the inhib/nexus area to clear that section faster -
i) you want to kill the inhib by 4:00-4:05
ii) you want a large enough creep wave to help you kill both turrets
so far, I can only do i) or ii) not both.
i) is necessary.
trying to do ii) by waiting at the inhib for another 30s is slower than i) by about 10-15 seconds
but if you can do i) and ii) you should be able to do better than 5:35
