Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild


#479

Aye, that would be a fair point but for the fact I got the amount the game told me to get and then a few more for good measure. I get that it feels like a conscious decision to go against convention but some conventions exist for a reason innit.


#480

I don’t think I even used arrows to down that boss. O.o But then again I had a wide array of additional powers at my disposal which would ground them.

Also it’s not self contained, you can come and go as you please.


#481

Ah fair, if there’s other ways of doing it that’s totally fair enough tbh, I was very limited when I went in in that case.


#482

I also had to leave the Zora divine beast boss to stock up on arrows. I don’t think the internal logic of this game is as flawless as some people have made out.

The 2 or 3 times I have gotten stuck in this game and I’ve checked a walkthrough, it’s been down to a poorly explained game mechanic rather than my inability to spot the solution.


#483

If you haven’t already I recommend upgrading your stasis ability it makes fights far easier, especially fights against bosses and lyels


#484

Yeah, think I’m gonna spend a considerable amount of time trying to build myself up now after that, get more hearts, upgrade runes etc


#485

My switch is arriving on the 1st of April apparently.* Can’t wait to dive in (my copy of Zelda is staring folornly at me from a shelf) and see what I’ve been missing: this thread is a better ad than anything Nintendo could have cooked up.

*it will be a very cruel April fool’s if it does not.

Really enjoyed Eventide Island. I didn’t find it that difficult because I have a decent number of heart containers, stamina and (Mipha’s Grace), but I did die quickly a couple of times before figuring out a solid order to tackle everything in.

I love how it was just tucked away on the map and I’ve only found it after 50+ hours.


#487

Just done my first Divine Beast (Rito one), the fight seemed easier than some of the big Moblins. Had to use a walkthrough to get to two of the terminals in the Divine Beast as I didn’t understand how to tilt the thing at first.


#488

Got there quite early but kept dying so I’ve left it until I get more hearts. It’s a great concept for a challenge


#489

Do you get all your gear back after beating it? Kind of worried I’ll lose the master sword for good if I go there.


#490

Yeah everything reverts to your original state, which was actually quite annoying because I made a ton of attack raising meals from bananas to defeat the Hinox, didn’t use more than one and then lost them all when I got my regular gear back.


#491

Thank feck for that!


#492

I figured out that thing you can do to kill the guardians without the Master Sword, which was a nice surprise because it was a complete “I bet I can’t do this but I’m going to try it anyway”. But now it’s a bit disappointingly easy to kill guardians, it used tobe like “Shitshitshitshit run away!” when one showed up, but now I have a sure-fire way to kill them easily without taking any damage. I’d have preferred to have kind of a difficult epic duel with them, would’ve been more satisfying. Maybe I’ll wait until I find the Master Sword and see how it is taking them down with that instead.

If anybody doesn’t know the method I’m on about but wants to, it’s using A with your shield up to deflect the death ray back at them, it takes between 1 - 5 hits to take them out.

Still no divine beasts, still got only about a third of the map unlocked, still having a great time with it.

Have we seen this?


#493

60 hours in and I’m starting to get a little fatigued. I think I’m gonna work towards the endgame now, I’ll probably use a walkthrough to locate all the outstanding shrines as that’s the one element I really don’t want to miss out on at all.


#494

You’ll have to make a choice on what to spend those orbs on - there’s 12 shy of a complete set of having 30 hearts or +10 stamina vessels. So those final 3 upgrades are a choice (unless you’ve already maxed out one of the criteria).


#495

Ooh just discovered this by chance.

If you fought Ganon before you’d got all your memories back (as I did), you may want to fight him again! MInimal spoilers: The scene after the credits is different


#496

I did the same. I also lured the hinox up onto the adjacent hill with the boulders on top. I then used stasis on a metal crate and smashed it into him repeatedly from a safe distance, all while making him set fire to himself walking over the campfire. Finished him off quite easy once I’d worked all that out!


#497

How far are you in on the main quest by the time it all starts to feel like hard work? Is it because it becomes repetitive?


#498

raises bat, nods towards pile of unfinished work
