The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


Recommended Posts

You also shouldn't forget about the charge attack each weapon has.  I find the multi-hit twirl that i can do with 2-handed Weapons really useful on Shrine Guardians, but the Classic Sword Spin & the Rapid Spear Stab have their uses too.  Just be sure to watch that Stamina Meter.

Enjoyed my first go at the Sword Trial just now.  Reached the 6th or 7th, and after a hairy battle found myself with half a heart remaining. 

 

Wanted to cook some food to top myself up, but had no easy fire (used fire arrows for combat)... Chopped a tree for some wood, then puzzled on how to get some flint..  Perhaps I could break one of the many rocks dotted around the map?  I tried throwing one into a wall to smash it. It bounced back and killed me. :D

 

Brilliant, I am getting worse at the trials every time I try them!

I noticed a huge area that I'd walked to, then seemingly thought 'fuck this' and turned around (discovered this on the Hero's path map thing). Went there last night, it was the Lost Woods....spooky.

I'm now 160 hours in and I've still not unlocked the entire left side of the map.

 

Been too busy exploring everything else, right?

 

So imagine my horror after downloading the DLC at the weekend and finding out that there are colossal fucking areas missing from my Hero's Path. Like, huge meadows, forests, and an entire sliver of map I thought I'd finished ages ago. There are main paths that I haven't even walked near to. I've just spent the entire evening wandering around the field outside Hyrule Castle because it turned out I hadn't done shit there yet. I reckon I still have about 10 more hours before I unlock the next section. It's ridiculous. The god damn game is glorious.

 

Bonus EX chest picture.

 

Spoiler

MA BOYZ!

Thanks, I'll finish it then grab the DLC :)

I don't think you need to 'finish it' first, I'm happily chipping away at the DLC with 1 guardian to go (~80 shrines, I think).

I finished the first 'checkpoint' of the Sword Trial, that was good fun!! I only died once more after aforementioned rock rebound incident, to those blinking Red/Black Lizalfos, they're nails with low level weapons!  

 

Protip for those attempting the trial: any max health/stamina effects will carry into the dungeon :)

You've... you've never been to the Lost Woods before this?!  Holy crap dude.

180 hours and I've only JUST discovered there's an approved way out of the lost woods...

 

The side quest to rescue 4 team members was really good. Made you go onto places you'd normally avoid and I found another shrine quest as a result.

 

THIS FUCKING GAME

I'm loving being back in Hyrule - have collected quite a bit of the DLC stuff so far (full Tingle costume, Midna's helmet, the Korok mask and Majora's Mask) - Path  of the Hero combined with the Korok mask is brilliant, I've found loads more, some in areas I'd never visited (after 145 hours...) and others that I'd just missed! 

 

Giving the trials a quick run now (I had a very brief try earlier, but I'd started with half health and was just fucking about so didn't get far!) 

Love that the whole thing is just a big Eventide (one of the best parts of the game IMO) :D

I'm still very much at the beginning of this. I've JUST got Sheikah Slate fully operational (I assume) and can now take selfies. Combat is getting easier, but I do sometimes feel a bit out of my depth, I'm hoping that at some point it will all click as occasionally it feels like there's a lot of micro management (weapons breaking mid fight, pause game, select new stick, unpause carry on, pause, eat, unpause, shield breaks, pause etc...) 

I'm enjoying finding and completing the shrines, yesterday I found a shrine quest with the following riddle.

 

Spoiler

"When a dark light resides in the cursed statue's eyes, pierce its gaze to purge the seal from the shrine,"

 

That was a fun one to figure out, and then the shrine that appeared was fiendish! So yeah all good fun, I'm just not sure if getting side-tracked so early on is the best way to be playing so might bash a few story missions out to see if it clicks a bit better. Or maybe, and more probable I'm just rubbish.

I'm assuming when you say "pause" here, you don't actually mean you are hitting pause - you're just holding down the required selection button right? At least, for weapons, arrows, and shields anyway.

In that case I'm definitely playing correctly! I have scores of apples, gears, opals, inedible food, and no idea what to do with it. I also have Horsetwat, who won't really do as I say.

I will persevere.

Head for the Zora and do the first divine beast (if you haven't already). That, I find, gives jsut enough structure and progression early on for a lot of folks.

No! There's a huge part of the map around the final Divine Beast I haven't seen yet but I thought I'd been lots of other places. I don't know if I found the entrance to the Lost Woods and just didn't chance it at that point or not, but it really did look like I'd walked up to the entrance and then ran in the opposite direction at the time.

Ha, no I'm not actually pausing it, but it does interrupt the play somewhat. I have found out that if I dodge at the right moment I can do a flourish type thing, which makes things a lot of fun. 

Also whats with the rams? I make it my personal mission to kill every one I see now as they tend to attack on sight!

Your poor inventory will breath a sigh of relief once you trudge through it..

Yeah, early on - as you progress the weapons generally get more durable and you'll find them breaking much less overall. I'm at the point where I'm leaving loads of stuff behind now as I just can't carry them all.

 

The dodge/flurry mechanic was shown in a tutorial on one of the plateau shrines wasn't it? Along with shield parry. Didn't think it was something you could miss...

All shrines get (well, one to go, which needs a particular moon cycle). Probably did my favourite two shrines in the game last night... the one with two bombs was pretty ingenious!

 

then today on the plane to heathrow, I tamed the Lord of the Mountain and had a brilliant time dressed as Tingle hurtling full pelt throughout hyrule. A guardian caused me to dismount and I lost my ride :( 

 

ive now taken to photography.:: capturing items, flair and fauna to fill my compendium.

 

just the greatest game ever made
