I'm in love with this game again. Realised that place names only appear on the map once you've been there so started heading to areas of the map that looked a bit unloved.
I've found so much awesome stuff.
Leviathan, shrines enshrouded in sand storms I found by following pointing statues,
a giant Eighth heroine quest that got me sand and snow boots, a colliseum where I battled an epic enemy, a lava pit where I tackled a giant fiery boss, sand seal racing, a shrine that felt like a proper dungeon and took 25 minutes, modulga underground desert enemies, tracked down several memories by using geography alone and found some new side quests by going back to see some old faces
Best game ever? Probably..
