Quest to get gud (Week 1)

Hi,
This is my thread to get gud. Right now my averages, goals and mains are
  • 2x2: 5.5 secs, sub 5, MGC 2
  • 3x3: 30 secs, sub 25, Thunderclap V3 M
  • 4x4: 4 mins, sub 3, Amazon brand (I'm getting a new one for Christmas so hopefully I'll be more motivated to get better)
I also know how to solve pyramix and megaminx but I have no interest in making my times for them faster.

I use Ortega for 2x2 and CFOP for 3x3, and I'm learning full PLL at the moment.
I use the beginners method for 4x4, but when I get a new one then I'm going to learn the Yau method.

I'd also like to get into clock and 5x5, but I don't have either of them yet.

Does anyone have any tips on how to beat my targets especially 3x3?

Thank you :)

Hi,
I have just hit my goal of sub-35 average so I'd like to start learning a few PLL algs. Which are the easiest ones I can learn?

Thanks!
If you're refering to learning them in a specific order, I would suggest learning the J perms, the R perms, the A perms, then the F and E perm, then the V perm, G perms, and finally the N perms. Even though you eventually will learn all of this algs so order doesn't really matter.

And if you're asking for algs, then I would recommend Jperm.net, but people may have better sources.

You missed the T perm

Honestly first of all there is no need for full pll until about 20-25 seconds. If you really want to learn full pll though than it's honestly up to personal preference, you can start with easy cases like j perms to begin with, you can start with the hardest ones like g perms. Or just do whatever order you want.

Do search PLL attacks online. You can try drilling all the PLLs in the order that most people do the PLL attacks.

I prefer the order, G G G G J J T N N E A Y A R R V F H Z U U .

Thanks, I used Jperm.net to drill 4lll so I probably will use it again .
Learn them in an order. It doesn't really matter, but definitely learn them all asap. Good algs can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17FBCIInZyqw-fcmIzaQnJ-NqH5JewaoSE050HN0VSwI/edit#gid=0
Ooh, that's a good sheet of algs, thanks!

Wow! Some really good tips there. I'll try do that when I'm practising.

If you know 2-look last layer, I suggest learning J perms first. If you don't know 2 look last layer I suggest you do that for OLL and PLL.

Quick update: I'm learning 1 or 2 PLLs every day and I've learned both T perms and J perms. I also got a new PB of 24.834, and an ao100 of 33 secs! Thank you for helping me.

One of the resources I used when learning PLLs was Bob Burton's website, since he describes how he executes and how he recognizes. I don't use all of his algorithms, but if you look at his PLL page, I more or less learned in the same order of "groups", except I learned the G-perms last.

Not sure if that's the best order, but it worked for me. Sometimes I learned in slightly different order, if I recognized a similarity from something I had learned previously (in 2x2, for example).
