I have 36 defense on my armor, the master sword, 5 points in stamina and 11 hearts yet I'm too scared to do the first divine beast...

Dude, Master Sword alone makes all of the Divine Beasts piss easy. Just go for it.

My defense was probably 12-14 and had about a 20 or less weapon when I defeated my first Divine Beast boss. They literally two-three shot me. You'll be fine, little bitch.

Easy now. They are Divine Beasts not Gods of Gods. Having 10 hearts is good. Going to Zora is also probably the right choice for you considering your health concerns going forward.

I'm generally terrible at boss fights too, but they're indeed "piss easy" in this game. Especially if you have good food to buff your offense/defense. And you can have tons of health restore meals etc.

That said, I didn't need much of that for the bosses. Only had a little trouble with Thunderblight Gannon, but not bad--mostly wonky camera there. Think I only ate a couple of meals for the final battle even as it took me a bit to figure out the 2nd stage, and I was at 17 hearts and worse armor than you.

Yeah, the Divine Beasts aren't hard at all. The real reason you shouldn't do them is that they're way worse than the rest of the game.

The beasts themselves. Just so underwhelming compared to exploring the rest of the game.

This doesn't mean that you won't necessarily waste a huge amount of time. I spent almost an hour yesterday scanning and rescanning my Smash Zelda amiibo for a Twilight Bow. All of that stuff is really rare. But, scanning more than once a day counts for so. A mething.

Didn't realize you could just "load" a game. Must've missed it, knew you could save anytime.

I'm sure there is probably another way but bring a healthy supply of arrows. Don't just use the Electric ones either.

I have 4 hearts and completed my first divine beast last night. Why are you so afraid to die?

Fun Fact

I take my Switch with me to work and play 15-20 minutes every hour or so.

Still dont understand how I have 30+ bours but Ive barely touched the surface of the game. I can easily see final completion time at 200+ hours.

What's best armour? I have mainly been using the Ancient chest piece and the Soldier helm and legs, all 2* upgrades.

I have 3* full stealth armor, 2* full climing... Oh I upgraded the Zora chest bit to 2* as well.

Pretty sure he only sells things you have already come across. He exists so you can replace those things you broke that your really, really liked or accidentally sold.

Final Boss Discussion:

So Ganon... that was it? I feel like if you go in prepared at all, it's a stupid easy fight, then an unnecessary second phase. If you use Urbosa's Fury, you can stun lock him to 1/4 health. Then he starts shooting guardian lasers that you can reflect back at him, keeping him stunlocked.
Then the second phase, which kind of fun, didn't feel very climactic at all. For such an amazing game, I was hoping for a better, more satisfying final boss fight.

Ah okay. That explains the starter armor set. I remember reading a lot of people sold it early on and went to regret it. Good guy Grante.

I did the Divine Beast Van Medoh (Rito area) over the weekend. In my opinion it was the easiest one yet with the least lead up.

Personal Divine Beat tier list:

1. Rudania
2. Ruta
3. Medoh

I haven't been to the Gerudo area yet, I hope that one is fun. I have maybe 3 or 4 towers left and then I'll have the whole map explored. The game is coming close to the end for me, even though there is still a ton to explore. I think I have 54~ shrines and almost 100 seeds found so far.

I wish the Goron and Rito had recognized Link more like the Zora did. It was a cool feeling going into the Zora area and everyone recognizes you and is in awe and/or pissed that you are alive. Really gave a sense of importance to the whole thing. The Rito and Goron you are pretty much just a stranger that they let help with their problems.

I think at this point it sort of doesn't matter what armour you wear, bosses don't scale in difficulty along with you so it likely won't make a dent in you no matter what you wear.

You have more upgraded armor than I do, and I've done all four dungeons. Just go do the fucking dungeon, christ! :P

Seriously though, if you've beaten a few Hinox's, you've fought something as-hard if not harder than the dungeon bosses.

I had just fought a White Lynel a couple hours before Ganon and it was 10x as tense. I concur. Heck I thought the divine beast bosses (the blights) were harder.

I'd love a version of the final boss balanced for players w/lots of hearts and cooked meals, would've been really satisfying to have all the hours put into the game pay off like that. I guess that's the tricky thing with having it have to be beatable for low level Link also.

You can grab the Master sword before you even ever do any divine beasts? The master sword ain't breakable, is it? Please say it isn't so.

You can, and it is. But it has a ten minute recharge time so it will fix itself.

It "loses energy" which is effectively the same as breaking, but is then usable again after ~10 minutes. Which is the right approach, IMO. Encourages you to still use a lot of the other stuff.
