I know it is a hard time for beginner to perform a saw jump. Yeah, it is hard as heck. And I am one of them, can't even pass a dunegon with saw jump. So, any guide to practice this more usually and make it easier? Thanks for your help :D (I even made a dumb dungeon to practice but it results nothing) http://prntscr.com/dv2ymo(also how to upload image)

For raiding: use ghost. Inline saw jumps are path dependent, so they cannot be performed from every origin point. With some jumps you need to walljump off of a specific point (although often there are multiple points) in order to be on the right pixel for the jump.

 

You get a lot of practice of course from trying to save a saw jump when you can. Watch a video on how to beat it on YouTube for example (berndt_toast has many videos) so that you know the correct path. From there on it's simple practice :)

This may help explain the path and reason why sometimes they work and sometimes they dont:

 

 

I have plenty of saw jumps on my youtube channel if you have a browse :)

It only explains 4 blocks. How about 3 blocks and 2 blocks? You would be closer than that.

There are examples of both on my defence videos :)

The main thing that you can do to be better at saw jumps is learn the common paths for each and memorize them. Many apply for different dungeons if the layouts are similar. By memorizing these paths you will be able to apply them when needed and through practice, the ability to complete them in fewer tries will come.

Is there some Place that has a collection of all paths?

I dont know the answer to your question, but i have some relative advice that might help.

I have used this technique to learn saw jumps myself and now i can confidently say i can 3 star about 60-80% of the different saw jumps (not taking into account other traps). Trust me at the start i couldnt 3 star any of the inline saw jumps for a very long time.

My method is the following:
1) Pick a base you would like to practice on. Focus on that one.
2) Look for an easy path. If you use a ghost and its really hard to follow, try giving up and raiding the same base again, which might be saved with a more memorable path. (Or just look for a different path yourself, if you are up for the challenge).
3) Practice it a few times. Make sure to keep raiding that kind of base so you dont forget how to do it later on. If you find even the simplest path to be very hard, maybe you should try and master a different setup first, which might turn out to be easier.

Progress will feel much slower this way, but personally it helped going one by one much more than trying to master all the different setups at the same time.

Thanks Oliver
I'll take your advice and try it out :)
But the dungeons with high loot usually don't use paths I know..
Also, I hope I'll get a base where I can practice a bit soon.

Thanks :)

This video has almost all saw jumps. Its in portuguese, so you probably wont understand the instructions but i think its self-explainable
