Except you can take a regular weapon and leave it in water to make it a rusty weapon. This resets the weapon degredation as part of the transformation. So being able to make that now repaired rusty weapon unrusty lets you repair any metal weapon in the game.

One big disadvantage of having the HUD off.

Tried that god damn stealth section so many times before breaking down and looking for help. Then saw the guy roll the damn banana. Blew my mind.

Another thing I learned more recently is that if you hold something like a Meteor, Fire Rod or Flame Arrow next to a block of ice it will melt it. Haven't tested flame swords, but I assume the same would apply. It's slow going, but it works if you don't want to waste your Rods or Fire Arrows.

I still find it easiest to use a torch and hold Y. Also, fire weapons can ignite fires (ex. campfires) with the fire clouds they generate, without actually touching them, meaning no durability loss.

The puzzles where the tilt controls a rolling ball through a maze get super easy if you're not in tablet mode - flip the controller over and you have a non-maze surface to roll the ball around with and flip it up where you need to go.

If you think any of these are "wonky" or "unintentional", you're doing the game's devs a huge disservice. Especially since:

ice arrows plus regular arrow (to the frozen body) works really well. I think just that kills them. no more lightning storms from the sky from them.

Then they like you enough to follow you and even point things out to you (or so the loading tips menu says. I've never had a dog point things out to me. Just follow me)

Edit: YOU COULD USE STASIS ON THE YIGA CLAN SECTION?! ARGH. I wish I had thought of that. That section was so frustrating for me. I should've used stasis

Well, I'm going to try this ASAP.

If true, it sounds more like a bug than an intended feature -- I wonder if it keeps any related affixes, like Attack Up or Durability Up.

You can make a campfire instantly on Death Mountain by just dropping wood.

You can stack armor effects and cooking effects past three stages. I used a haste elixir at night while using upgraded Sheikah armor (with the night speed bonus) and I was running so fast the animation looked like a cartoon.

You can tell when the Lord of the Mountain is at Mount Satori if you see a glow at night (there are tons of Blupees there as well, and the mountain is always filled with crows or goats for meat).

If you open a chest other than from the front without pants on, then when Link kicks it he grabs his foot and winces. The same happens if you're crouched down and open it, even if you have something on (he punches it).

Being in bushes or tall grass actually increases your stealth.

If you drop or throw your weapon (like a boomerang) and have lost it, then use the Sheikah Sensor+ to find it. You could also do the same if there's arrows everywhere. In case you missed it also when you got the Sheikah Sensor+, you can buy Compendium entries (it's random from selected categories, and each one costs 100 rupees) from Symin at the Hateno lab. You can also take photos of treasure chests and the different kinds of ore deposits to track them.

You can burn the leg guards off of Hinoxes to attack their legs more easily.

Frozen enemies will take increased damage.

You can destroy Guardian's legs to immobilize them or destroy the flying one's rotors to send them into the ground.

There are five types of monster disguises in the game; four are from Kilton (the Bokoblin, Moblin, Lizalfos, and Lynel masks, though Lynels will only be fooled temporarily) and the other is from the secret club in Gerudo Town, which at night will glow in the dark and act as a lure for more Stal enemies to spawn, and if you have all three it will disguise you from them. It also increases your bone weapon damage.

Traveling merchants sell better stuff on rainy days.

I didn't even use any stealth potion or gear in the Yiga section.

First guard, wait till he passed by, glided to the rock middle. Climbed up. Let him walk around. Glided to the left of the door guard, stasis'd him, walked in.

Take ladder to banana room just to take the bananas for myself. Go back to the opening on the balcony, glide to boxes in front of door guard, stasis him, then run inside.

Only took me two tries cause of accidentally climbing things i didn't want to climb and didn't beat my stasis timer.

Hell even going into the Yiga area I was on the top of the cliffs the whole time. Whole segment was dirt easy

You can do that by holding the flame sword too :)

If there's an ice block near you you can melt it by literally just standing next to it if you have any flame weapon equipped.

I remember trying this because I saw it in the trailer. The timing isn't very hard so it actually makes them very easy to beat. Same with the major test of strength enemies

As metal weapons conduct electricity, you can actually circumvent certain shrine / dungeon puzzles by simply bridging the current with a weapon. - don't forget to magnetize the weapon and not carry it yourself, though.

It also knocks enemies over if you use it to parry melee attacks, but it's better to side-step and use a flurry counter.

Yeah, kills octorocks instantly

I'm surprised people are making a big deal out of the shield parry. They show it being done in the trailer.

Campfire tricks:

Start a campfire to make the wind go up. User your glider to shoot in the sky. Good for supprise attacks.

When it rains and you dont want to wait find a dry spot. Start a campfire and just choose wait to skip the rain.

  • When you see a Korok circle of stones where one is missing walk to the center of the circle, then start walking towards the gap in the circle where the rock is missing. You´ll always find the rock a few steps ahead.
  • You can feed bombs to Octorocks, then detonate them to easily kill them.
  • The stealth attack will OHKO almost all enemies in the game (haven´t found any who survived) WITH ANY WEAPON. I killed a bunch of Yiga Blademasters this way using a not lit torch.
  • If you shoot an arrow to a Lynel´s eye you will stun it. Run to his back and press A to mount it, then spam Y to get some free attacks.
  • All mountable animals (including Lynels) can be easily mounted if you glide on top of them.
  • Feed 3 times any dog at a stable to make it guide you to a buried chest. Can´t say it works with all dogs, but so far it´s worked with every dog I´ve tried.
  • Hinox will start covering their eye when you shoot it twice. try jumping and gliding from anywhere (even a small rock, box, or whatever) and shoot mid-air to trigger slow motion, this will allow you to hit it in the eye before it has time to defend itself.
  • All Shrines have at least 1 secret treasure chest. Once you beat a Shrine an icon next to it´s name will indicate if it has any chests left. Note that if you open a chest but don´t take it´s content (because you have a full inventory) the chest will not register as opened, the map will show it accordingly and you can go back and get the contents later. Edit: As Kain-Nosgoth pointed out below it´s actually the opposite: The Shrine will only show the chest icon when you find and get the contents of all chests inside the Shrine.

Subbing for future reference later. Funnily enough, I didn't know that guardian shields could reflect their beams until I had already wasted all my best weapons on fighting them, despite the fact that I had two guardian shields in my inventory.

If it hasn't been mentioned already, setting stuff on fire and then throwing food into the fire cooks it.

You go faster if you press rhythmically. But don't press so quickly that you enter the combo. Every stroke should be the same.
