I did the same thing - at some point, I ended up just skipping all the Blessings and Tests of Strength; then did them all consecutively. Some more variation was desperately needed there - the Magnesis barriers and flooded chambers helped a little, but didn't alleviate the fundamental problem of the repeating enemy design. Throwing in a couple of Stalker Guardians, groups of two or more Scouts; Guardian Turrets which act more like Beamos and project a continuous beam to apply pressure while you fight other enemies; even Stal-nels using Ancient weaponry - it'd all have helped make them less of a chore. Since the shrines reset after every blood moon, there's no excuse to repeat the same enemy layout twice.

It seemed so low-key that I didn't realise that it was supposed to be the assault sequence on the Divine Beast; instead of a warmup to the actual fight inside the crater. Actually attacking Rudania there didn't cross my mind at all to begin with.

Well, I was bored by W3's bad combat, wonky RPG mechanics and uninteresting open world not even 20 hours in.

Imo "story" can only carry your game so far if the game design part of the package is as pedestrian as W3 (true for games like Uncharted too).

If I remember correctly the german translation got this message right... I knew that I was supposed to hit the beast in order to drive it back into the vulcano.

I also went all the way to the end of the path without knowing I had to use the cannon, then just got back and did that whole part incredibly fast since there were no enemies, lol.

I'm at ~100 shrines, I know have a lot of trouble to find them, I'm impressed by people that reached the 120 quickly. About 200 koroks.
point your penis at me,

Then I looked down and saw a circle of rocks in the water... then I realized immediately that you have to throw a rock into the center of the circle. I love that Korok seed puzzles are just so intuitive with no instructions.

I've seen a few which are not so intuitive. There is one on a raised platform to the east of Rassia Lake, which seems to be purposefully impenetrable. It is actually a twist on the common rock circle... but all the rocks are already present. There is a loose rock in the middle of the circle. Nothing happens when you remove it. Nothing happens when you put it back. As far as I can tell, there is no other circle of rocks nearby. There does not appear to be a place for the loose rock anywhere nearby. I have not figured this one out yet. Currently I'm at 112 seeds. There are three or four now that have stumped me. I'm sure I am missing something obvious, but all the difficult ones seem to eschew intuitiveness by sidestepping expectation.

I used the map that says how many shrines there are per region. So I roughly knew where to look.

This game is actually worth discussing. Everyone (who plays it without guides and goes beyond fighting or the main quests) will have their own stories to tell.

Im playing without a guide and only I very rare occasions I checked online for a hint rather than the solution to be honest.

Im now 50 hours in around 50 shrines half of the memories and maybe 100 korok seeds.

But my conclusion for now: it's the best game I ever played.
