The more I think about losing those shields, the more gutted I feel. Can I revisit combat shrines to get more?

Both yeah, but it's never the charged up beams, it's always the smaller pulse lasers. And yes, blood moons reset tests of might and you can get the items again.

So after encountering them a few times and getting completely destroyed, I decided to finally go toe to toe with a Lynel. It's the one in the coliseum (which after 70+ hours with the game I *JUST* found). I equipped all my best gear, got my best weapons out, and let him spot me from a distance so I could lure him out. As he approaches me I shoot him once in the face with my bow, then hide behind the outer wall of the coliseum to ready another arrow... and mother fucker shoots an arrow OVER THE WALL and leaves me with 3/4 a heart. I was like "damn, what a lucky shot" but then it happened two more times, with six near misses.

The game is rigged, man.

It was raining when it happened for me. What I found there was one of the best surprises of the game for me! I literally freaking gasped, especially understanding the meaning of it. Fantastic moment.

108 shrines down. Two shrines with motion controls. One was getting ridiculous, had to turn the gamepad like a madman because the sensitivity is complete bonkers. Feels like they designed it for Wii U but playtested the switch version.

Apparently bladed Lynel shields can be used as makeshift weapons--parrying with them does damage to enemies that get hit in the swing. Found that out today on accident.

If you want to know. Something is there when you see the light randomly at night.


Also, if you play long enough you do reach a point where Guardians are not scary anymore.

i turned 35 on the 15th, and one of my first video game moments i can remember is when i was in kindergarten, and my dad purchased a nes and zelda. My dad is not nerd/geek in the least. Was a hippie and played sports in his younger years, and sports are pretty much his only recreational passion/interest.He worked as a home improvement salesman in those days, and i remember him sketching dungeon layouts floor by floor because a strategy guide wasnt something he knew about. The mere promise of aLttP was enough for him to get me a SNES when it launched. That was 25 years ago.

So we celebrated my birthday over the weekend by having a cookout at my house. He watches my daughter on Fridays so he knew I had been playing BotW already. During the night he gave me an envelope with a bunch of stuff from my childhood including pictures, school papers, personal writings ect. Included in this was the book I made when I was in first grade, about the legend of zelda. It was one of the best presents ever. Not because it was a stupid thing from my childhood from 29 years ago, but because it let me remember some of my earliest and favorite memories of my dad, enjoying a hobby that years later I would continue to be passionate about.

I miss old dungeons. Also quests are pretty lame fetch quests for money. Is there any meaningful quests...I loved majoras mask people's lives and etc... I'm looking for that.

I went to hyrule castle And it was great.., my favorite part so far. Calamity ganon isn't involved enough imo

Best in games are against none story bosses maybe you didn't killed enough monsters to see their silver version ?
But no, this game is not Majora Mask like game.

They also teach you stuff about the tribes, their uses, the lore in general etc and those are reminiscent of Majora's Mask. Then sure there are some fetch quests, and it's ok that they give you money since you don't really find many rupees around anymore, but let's try not to suggest that all this title has in terms of subquests are fetch quests. Because it's false.

Bring me a horse, take a picture of this thing, I need 10 of this, find my friend... these aren't fetch quests????

Majoras mask quests were awesome because you got game changing masks and finally the fierce deity mask. They were great stories, depressing about the end of their life and the world.

Let me be positive, still finding new items things and haven't even explored most of the world. Equipment is awesome, love the personality and touches. Still haven't tried to tackle lynels. I mean yea there's sooo much content but but getting a new weapon+++ isn't that great compared to getting a hook shot, Invisibilty cape, etc. i guess cause weapons break in end game it doesn't have the same effect of getting a giants sword from oot.

I enjoyed eventide island ... idk feel like there's not much reward I guess other than endless playing which is good on its own. More fun the stronger you get though

Yea I fought some mini bosses likemogdula and haven't done anything with the dragons yet. Are you talking about white versions with cavemen looking clothing? Or silver is something more? Yea I mean it's good that I can play this game for years but my favorite thing of zelda has always been the dungeons lol. So yea definitely a 360

No use in tackling the remaining three dungeons if you're already bored. At 50 hours, you're likely powerful enough to finish the game.

Btw, I'm 105 hours into the game and am still utterly consumed by this world. :)

I always power the console off and had it happen once, I immediately reloaded a save before the bloodmoon and powered the console off.
never happened again.

It "breaks" when it runs out of energy. Just let it break and it will regenerate after 10 minutes.

Just let it shatter and then it comes back in 10 minutes.

Low energy is just a weapon specific way of saying low durability.

I'm talking about normal monsters up to Lynel.
Not sure about the others since I didn't killed that much and I don't think dragons count.

Destroy the Guardian drones. Use Magnesis.

Still don't get why this area is such a challenge for some people.

I can understand the frustration from the Yiga Clan Hideout (even though I loved it), but not this section.

The latter, but make a few heat resistant elixirs instead of food.

If you're a ways into the Tarrey Town sidequest, you'll meet a character very early on in the desert than can sell you armor long before you reach the inside of Gerudo Town.

This is also true. Travel in the early morning, evening, or night. I like having a few elixirs available though, so I can just explore whenever.
