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?
