This game just keeps on giving. Nearly a hundred hours in I've just found a shrine in an area I visited in the first ten hours. I must have traveled past it countless times.

Returned to Kakariko to do the stolen orb shrine quest, then wandered around a little just before saving and turning the game off. Ended up at Lanayru Promenade because I saw the name on the map and didn't recognise it.

When I got there I found the most beautiful location and a shrine in a cave, which turned out to be a pretty cool puzzle.

I'm far from bored of the world, but it was so refreshing to stumble across something different.

Does the new profile for a new save work with WiiU?

Otherwise I think I'll have to transfer my save to cemu and play the rest there when it's all fixed up.

Everything else about this game is so on point and so good, especially all the changes from the staple Zelda model, but dungeons are the most important part of a Zelda, and it's just a shame this game seems to have not delivered on that aspect.

I had the exact opposite reaction to you. Everything in the lead up to conclusion I thought was just brilliant. Mind you I have only played Link to the Past before, so I guess I didn't have the usual dungeon formula imprinted in my expectations as much.

I appreciate how they disperse the usual discreet sprawling dungeons throughout the shrines and in the actual world. It's different and it works for this game.

Just doing some random obvious shrine locations and one of the coolest is Typhlo Ruins up north past Korok Forest. I loved how it was completely pitch black and you had to create fire to light your torch. It really felt like an area you'd find in a Dark Souls game -- it really heightened my heart rate a bit because of the fear of the unknown. Of course, I went in from what appeared to be the main entrance to the place so navigating my way to the shrine wasn't too bad. Only to discover there was a Hinox with one of the ancient orbs used to spawn the shrine! I defeated it pretty easily but I could see that place being hard if you went there earlier on

Still, a really awesome place and experience. I really like all these small unique locations on the map they've come up with that just weren't here in previous Zelda games. It really makes exploration meaningful and awesome.

Like, the other day, I went through Tanagar Canyon and found a Forgotten Temple which was filled with Guardians, a shrine at the end, and a very large Goddess Statue. Almost if not completely the same size as the one in Skyward Sword on Skyloft. Yet another really cool location that's purely awesome because you discover it on your own and while what's inside may not be everything you want, just seeing the innards and going through it felt so, so satisfying to me.

Finished up the fire dungeon. Pretty cool concept but I ran out of arrows and had to teleport out, buy some and come back to complete it. :/

I really like the fireproof armor set. Goofy, but adorable in a way.

Discovered that latter location yesterday. It felt like something out of OOT or Majora and it made me happy to run around exploring it. Ending with a memory and Lynel fight was just pudding.

For all the complaints that might be levelled against the music, dungeons, bosses, stealth sections, story, voice acting, lack of dog/fish petting, Amiibo-locked content and the censorship of Purah's swimsuit scene, this is by far the most major issue holding BoTW back from being as flawless as is realistically possible.

Of the 3 or 4 armor sets that are in the "wild," only one set is obvious where the other 2 pieces are after finding the first.

The rest are luck, unless I missed some clues in journals or spoken by NPCs which is very possible.

Yep. Jim was right. Slant was right. The game really is mediocre.

Yeah the Savage set is easy to figure out, but the Rubber set had me frustrated for ages. The locations kind of made sense on their own but I couldn't really anticipate the others after finding the first.

That's weird. The only thing I don't constantly get against lynels are shields because only the sword wielding ones seem to drop them. Otherwise, I always get their bow and weapon upon their defeat.

No lies detected. I try to avoid that faker whenever possible. He was kind of a jerk in Skyward Sword too. Faker there as well.

I forgot about that after Hudson left and recently bumped into it again after tons of hours of exploration. I felt it was pretty cool how it pulled at location knowledge of people you talked to through your journey. I knew where everyone was located and it felt really rewarding.

Can anyone explain the Fairy Fountain upgrades and whether or not they stack?

So for example, if I go to the fairy who upgrades a great amount, can I then go to the fairy who upgrades a small amount and get add'l defense points? Will I need to go to both to get the most out of my armor?

When you unlock a new fairy, all of them do the same upgrades. So if you unlocked the second fairy, both the first and the second will be capable of doing the same upgrades. They will all do a great amount when you reach that level of upgrade

With regards to the Wolf Link amiibo, can you spawn Wolf Link as many times as you like? Like, say that it dies, can you revive it? Or is it a one-off thing and it can never be summoned ever again?

As far as I know, once per day, like most other amiibo.

By the way, a loading screen tip says that it will lead you to anything you have set the radar to detect, which is pretty cool.

Just found the blood moon shrine.

Seems like a poorly thought out idea, considering there's no warning when one is coming up, and you can't possibly get to the area quick enough when one starts.
Idk, maybe you could just make it if you warp to the shrine with the lord of the mountain and glide over?
