Well I'd think if you made a new profile with the specific intent of unlocking the Hard version again if they did an official contest, you could probably do it in like six to eight hours. If they gave us a week advance notice or something, it could probably be arranged. I'm going to wrap up my other quests for now and if I start getting low on money or finish them all and GT is still in its current state (or they DO make a contest) I'll start scumming for that dream run (that's about what I had to do for Muu..., Warlord Edition.)
But that's possibly because I hate Binlor and just ended up using him long enough to be guaranteed an ENDISWAL glyph and then switched to Dracul. Doesn't help that unless you're a Paladin/Monk/elsewise reliant on resists, that Binlor has one of the sissiest wrath effects. I'm not much a fan of his boons either, unless I very specifically need magic resist.
