I wouldn't have minded regular old Zelda dungeons. An interior design more like interconnected shrines, complete with maps and keys, rather than multiple puzzles in a large space.



This would have been great, I think.

Yeah, this is what I expected from BotW before playing the game. The disappointment is real ;_;

Two dungeons down now and I got the Master Sword. Also maybe 4-5ish memories to go.

I think I need a break. As great as this game is, the whole repetition of go here > climb tower > find and do shrines is starting to wear on me.

I also got a crapton of weapon upgrades. I suddenly went from rotating between crappy weapons to suddenly being overwhelmed by good weapons because I found that de-resting the weapons found near Hyrule Castle results in super strong stuff.

Fighting guardians doesn't seem so bad anymore because it seems the Master Sword makes short work of them.

By the way, are there any other interactions you could have with Paya besides just going "hey Paya, what's up?" It seems odd that that's all the talking you can do with her.

Let me guess - the other piece of rubber armor is the other one?

Where you have to use Zora armor to swim up the waterfall and then drop a metal weapon on the hill to use lightning to break open access to the shrine?

I have to disagree Zelda keeping its challenge. The lack of enemy variety and open nature allowing you to find relatively powerful equipment early on (I'm still speaking about a few hours in and not minutes following the Great Plateau, of course) made the feel of sticking to the edge of my seat over any battle an unlikelihood. That said, I'm not a player that feels sheer difficulty makes an adventure. However, when I come to a "Major Combat trial" and know that it'll be the same enemy with the same pattern and only a single spawn, it takes the pressure out of the whole title. It actually bleeds into a late-game encounter making it also less interesting visually and mechanically, which was a disappointment.

You see plenty of talus throughout the world. Not sure why an ice one is exactly special.

It's the placement of the talus. I was walking along the back boundary and decided to climb up, as I'm climbing up, I passed a small outcropping, and the way he's placed, it's only the one cube of ice like they'd been training me to melt for stones instead of three like the usual talus signifier. So it looks like a small reward for going up this part of the mountain, but then, as soon as you land, he rises up and you're fighting on the edge of cliff on the side of a mountain. Was so shocked, he one shotted me immediately.

And again subjective, but there are a lot of landmarks and interesting cliffs. Some cool hidden shrines, shield boarding course, just looking for the flags leads you to things, like a hinox.

I think the designers realize this, which is why the pillars are gone. Instead they have metal cubes recessed into the ground. It's fun trying out different ways to take out the guardians using the runes.

I actually really enjoyed the Divine Beast dungeons. My favorites were the Zora and Gerudo ones. My only complaint is that sometimes they felt too small-scale. If they were twice the size and had more interlocking difficulty then I would have approved. Wouldn't hurt also to increase the coloration and go for more of the region's theme but I think they wanted to keep the Sheikah theme consistent in design.

The idea of manipulating the whole dungeon to open up paths or solutions is really brilliant and a lot of fun. Feels like a fully realized continuation of the Forest Temple's hallway trick from OoT. Figuring out the trick behind manipulating the waterfall in the Zora one made me feel like a genius at least lol.

I love the Hebra area. Everything is so quiet and desolate, most of the time it's just Link and the snow, with the occasional wolf you need to shoe away with an arrow. Stal enemies seem to spawn a lot less out there, which helps.

I agree and was rather surprised to see some who outright hated them. I thought they were clever, simple, focused and capped with great boss fights each that played out like its own puzzle.

I , inadvertently of course, found myself beating them in order of most to least difficulty which was pretty neat.

I expected stuff like a sprawling underground city where your actions can effect things on the surface and all sorts of interesting interactions to open up new locations and solve puzzles would occur. Not to mention rare treasures to find and new enemies to encounter. I also expected glorious boss battles that rampage through the dungeon and occasionally back out to the surface instead of some samey pushovers that just get dumped in a room.

Still, much like Oot, BotW is really just the sort of first draft at this new style of Zelda so it will probably take them a couple of tries to really perfect it.

I like the idea of large puzzle rooms, but in practice they weren't as fun as they seemed, and oftentimes more frustrating than fun (I'm looking at you, Ruta). Some, however were a perfect small dungeon (the Rito one, for example).

That being said, I almost would've preferred extended shrines as dungeons than divine beasts, if I'm being honest.

Or, better yet, much more complex divine beast "boss fights" a la Shadow of the Colossus. That would've been neat.

After you obtained the Camera there will be (No Story Spoilers) locations that are hinted in the stock images. You can talk to the painter you likely met in Kakariko, that you may also find in different stables around the world and he will give you an extra clue based on one of the images. In these exact locations, there will be a shiny yellow aura. If you Examine it, Link will remember a part of the past and a cutscene will play. Afterwards, the cutscene will be replayable and saved in your main menu. There are 12 optional ones and 5 you get from the story as you progress through the major areas.

I finally rode a big deer though!

It wasn't on purpose, I had no clue it could even be done, and my stamina is so low that I couldn't hold on. I was paragliding down from a big cliff, ran out of stamina, and LANDED on one, then all of a sudden it's going crazy bucking and I'm trying to hold on all the while wondering just what in the world was happening. I thought I was dead, but nope, it inadvertently saved me then tossed me off!

Every single time I play I find something that blows me away. I've never played anything that did that to me before. It's so amazing.

Hebra Mountains is a very nice zone that invites exploration at every turn. You also often have clear weather, I don't know why you'd imply it had always poor visibility.

This comment and the unclimbable mountain in the highlands makes me think the story DLC will be focused here. Definitely the most barren and pointless region, even the Yiga Hideout is technically in the Wasteland region.

Edit: I've found four memories so far, that i can lend help on:

1) The image with Hyrule castle, a river, and a flying bird in the distance. This is found on the western slopes of Eldin. Go to a point on the western slope of the region where you're looking out at the Forest Tower and hunt around those ledges.
2) The image with the squareish mountain and a bridge. This is northeast of Hylia bridge, near the river that drains into the lake. The tree in the picture is the only tree around that spot.
3) The image with the Dueling Peaks in the background. Pretty straightforward. Take the canyon between the Dueling Peaks as your starting point and go due West until you come upon a patch of woods that look like the trees in the picture
4) The Bazaar. This one doesn't even need spoiled, the Bazaar in the desert is right there in the picture!

Well, it looks as though my unintended, emergent ambition to complete all shrines without bringing down a single Divine Beast is at an end, as after 108 shrines, I finally ran into one (and an obviously placed one, at that) which told me flatly that it can't be done; Beast first, come back later. The Sand-Seal Rally. I bypassed a lot of the minigames until very late, and didn't realize until last night that this particular challenge unlocked a shrine, only you're not allowed to do it while Vah Naboris is still stomping around the desert. I'm sure there are other ones, too: of the shrines I haven't done, I know where about half of them are but not how to enter them, and was definitely beginning to think that some of them had a part of the main quest as a prerequisite. (Not a surprise, as some of the other shrines required other intermediary stages of things filed under "Main Quests", namely access to towns.)

I'm now at 109 shrines and 368 Koroks, and after exploring much of Hyrule Castle without finishing it, I think I'm ready to hit some dungeons at last and see what else unlocks from there. I guess I should eventually talk to Impa, too. Of course, I've been saying that repeatedly for a week now, but what's changed is that now the game has given me some closure on the matter of whether "all shrines before Beasts" is even achievable.

Speaking of Hyrule Castle, I loved the method for obtaining the Hylian Shield. It felt like an earned accomplishment, but one fully within reach of players who choose to hit the castle as early as they can. I was also surprised and delighted to find all three of the dragon fangs in chests around the castle, as I had no idea they were there, only to notice that they were fangs, not horns, and therefore not the parts I needed to finish upgrading my Barbarian set. I don't know what the fangs are for, but I look forward to finding that out for myself.

This is another one that makes me wonder what other people did to get through it, as my own solution for it was rather hacky and I know there must be other ways. I dislike moving objects by putting them in stasis and hitting them, and avoid it by any means possible if an alternative presents itself, so for the orbs outside the central area, I ran around the perimeter until I found just the right spot to place a barrel, hop on the barrel while carrying an orb, and get enough height to chuck the orb into the elevated ring. It took a few attempts to get the barrel and the hopping just right without knocking everything over.

Well, after that event, one of the builders goes off to build a town that you can help with. You should be able to find that quest in your Side Quests log. Asides from that and the house upgrades, that's pretty much it.

I'm definitely over 75 hours in and I only have like 75 shrines. Which is honestly good for me because I never want this to end.

Well, I've come to the point where I've beaten the game and have found as many shrines, side quests, and Korok seeds as I can without using a guide. Currently sitting at around 32% completion at about 100 hours of playtime. I think my stats look something like this off the top of my head:

Shrines: 92 / 120
Shrine Quests: 30 / 42
Side Quests: 47 / 76
Korok Seeds: 130 / 900
Location Discovery: no idea lol

At this point I'd probably be more willing to use a guide to finish up the rest but on the other hand I feel using a guide for this stuff is a total waste of time and completely defeats the purpose of the game (exploring). The only other option is to meticulously comb the entire map from top to bottom and even then I will probably miss some Korok seeds.

This doesn't even take into account other stuff that doesn't count towards 100% completion but still are in the game like the Hyrule Compendium, miniboss medals of honor, collecting every piece of armor and upgrading each to the max, horse equipment, Amiibo stuff, etc.

I think at this point my goal will be just to get all 120 shrines so I can have 27 hearts / max stamina to be prepared for the DLC later in the year and then shelve the game until then. No point in using a guide to collect all 900 Korok seeds and getting burned out.

I'm definitely over 75 hours in and I only have like 75 shrines. Which is honestly good for me because I never want this to end.


Hahahaha! You hit the nail on the head.

I got 80-90 on my own, been using a shrine map to locate the last of them.

It's like a Phylliidae (a walking leaf). The leaf shaped face is part of their body. It's not a mask.

EDIT: Koroks are of shoots from the Kokiri forest dwelling people, if I got it right. So it follows that OoT would be an example of the Koroks in their humanoid form.
