Yeah make use of the dedicated BOTW thread, everyone has gone through the same things and will aim to give non-spoiler tips and nudges.
In general, I used to try and avoid guided because I felt it would somehow invalidate my experience, but I have to accept I’m also shit at games and sometimes I need the help. Think the question should always be “am I having fun?”, if you’re proper stuck and you can’t enjoy the game any further then what’s the harm in looking? You’ll know how sensitive you are to spoilers and stuff, it’s for you to judge - obviously there’s satisfaction to figuring things out yourself but you can’t always do that.
If this is going to be the new Switch thread, can we put the friends doc in the top again?
