Correct, I powered my way to 13 hearts then claimed some back and put them in stamina once I got the sword, not done any divine beasts yet.

I want to do the Goron main quest for the divine beast but I can't even get close to the nav point without getting set on fire.

If anything, if you want good boss fights, going straight to hyrule castle and doing the boss rush is your best option. But then you miss all that amazing content. Its kind of weird that doing everything the game has to offer makes the bosses disappointing, its almost punishing you. They should either scale with what gear you have or just be harder in general.

Stop by the stable on the way into the region and talk to the person by the cooking pot.

I'm hoping this changes next city though. I'm currently content just activating shrines and coming back to them later. A few less-than-fun ones recently have kinda put me off them for a while.

I finished the divine beasts and almost beat ganon last night. All my weapons are in the 20-30 range, more towards the 20 side. I haven't gotten a strong unique weapon in forever.

Only attack or defense power is listed in the game. The other numbers are hidden.

Some of the numbers are in the official guide. Like the Hylian shield has 800 durability. Possibly you can also get the numbers from data mining the games code.

Personally I like the choice, it reminds me of how Megaman X handled it's first boss encounter. When a boss is difficult at first, and lot easier after the journey, it serves to make it feel worth the effort.

I hate hard boss fights (still platinumed Bloodborne with no summoning though!) so that was honestly a plus for me. Gamers that want more of a challenge can not add hearts or use the food. Those who just want to get them over with can power through them by gaining hearts and improving armor, doing them later when they have better weapons, use food as needed etc. Good way to customize difficulty options IMO.

Went mineral hunting and ended up in a very curious looking place: Forgotten Temple. For a series that is inspired by Miyamoto stumbling into a cave, this game very much lacks caverns so a finding cavern-like place was fantastic.

"What could go wrong?" I think.

"Everything," this game answered.

I own the Wii U version, and my daughter has the Switch version. Only real difference I notice is the framerate gets hit more often on the U. Not a huge deal for me.

I play the Wii U version on the tv in our upstairs living room, while my daughter plays on the switch. We're constantly telling each other to come and look, then we are marking each other maps for locations. Basically, we're playing Zelda as a co-op game, lol.

Though after paying up, you can go to any fairy to upgrade the gear

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.

Same, I don't currently have any incentive to use my upgrades for hearts, or feel as though I need more. You lose heath quickly (instantly in many cases) but the game throws temporary hearts at you like candy. Also the pretty lenient autosave keeps the game from punishing you too much.

That's plenty. Especially if you have a lot of life restoring food, food for extra hearts, defense/attack boosting etc. May not even need that, but super easy if you have it.

I've been farming the bowling game in the snowy mountains to get rupees.

It's a good way to get a lot of rupees without selling valuable materials.

I need the 10,000 rupees for the last fairy fountain and 6,000 rupees for the ancient armor set. I also need to fully upgrade my house.

The rupee grind continues! I love how the rupee economy actually works in this game.

I think it's actually more fun if you only have one stamina meter, since you have to plan a route if you want to go higher, like an actual mountain climber.

Nah, I like having extra stamina (and then food-boosted extra stamina) so that I can use the jump button to scale faster, especially for long climbs. No sense is wasting that kind of time (this coming from someone who has put 75 hours in so far and only beaten two bosses LOL).

Who ever designed Hebra and hid some of those shrines is a monster. A goddamn monster.

See that random hill? There's a shrine under it but only if you look at it from the right angle, from the right height, while wearing a dress on the third day of the month but only if you shield surfed and shot two bokoblins in the face.

Yo, that bird guy in the plains outside of Kakariko gave me a shrine quest and I think I'm in the right area to start looking for it.

The mountain next to Lanayru tower has bones and shit all over the base of the hill it's on. Going by the text of the puzzle I should be able to see it from there and I see like 4 shrines. Which one is it? Or do I need to climb the full mountain that has the bone structures at it's base?

One thing I noticed recently that may not be widely known: (mild weapon spoilers)

the weapons on hinox necks scale up, even red hinox. It drops nothing but 40+ royal broadswords and 50+ royal claymores for me now

Quick way to load up wth quality stuff late game I'm thinking, especially because red ones go down in 5 hits now.

Did you guys end up googling the solutions to some of the riddles after trying to figure them out for a bit? I was initially just going to beat the game without looking up any guides but then I realized I was just going to ignore those quests until I beat the game and then use a guide. So far I've only had to look up how to unlock the fragmented shrine in the beach and I was overthinking it so much that the solution made me laugh.

My suggestion: You'll get those 12 locations as you play the game. You can really progress along any "main quest" vector, or explore for shrines/seeds/regions, etc.

Everybody plays it differently from there, essentially.

No. I just move on and come back later. That no content really "blocks" any other content, other than a few quest chains, is like the single most freeing part about the game design.

They're either the worst or second-worst set of dungeons in 3D Zelda, depending on how charitable you want to be to The Wind Waker. I don't think many will disagree with that statement.
