The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


Recommended Posts

I was doing the dlc quest underneath one of the mazes this morning. Just as I cleared the room and was heading to the chest I got a blood moon!

 

It was like a swat crew arrived as I opened the chest & ported out of there with many, many red dots on my back. :lol:

@Mr Do 71 I could do with one of your ludicrously cryptic clues. 

 

The dragon who flies near the huge canyon - Dinraal I presume.  I've only seen him once..  I would like to see him again.  What's the trick?  Like I figured out Farosh easily enough, it was time of day based.  But I've gone to the same spot where I saw Dinraal and waited a whole day and NOTHING.  Ran up and down the edge of the chasm, NOTHING.  Made a few fires to pass days, etc. Still nothing. :(   I'm at my wits end!

 

The canyon that leads to the Forgotten Temple? If so, I don't know either sorry :( I actually haven't bothered too much with the dragons yet.

Has anyone else had a go at master's mode yet?  It's properly awesome, I think.  I'm only about halfway through the plateau, but sheesh I'm avoiding most fights, the basic weapons like treebranches etc are just useless!   Stealth really is important and making potions to help me run away / sneak are crucial!!  Top stuff, it makes the game very different! 

 

I hope there are more new baddies, too, the floating platforms are interesting! 

 

Yes I am currently playing it because 120 hours of normal mode is just not enough.

 

I've polished off the Rito Dungeon first of all since it has such a quick leadup, and the ravioli jump is handy for towers. So far I'm not noticing much difference? But it's great to play it again. (Is it just floating platforms, tougher enemies and regenerating health?)

The Hero's Path is such a good addition :wub:

 

I've already found a bunch of new areas and shrines I've never been to before. It's got me right back into the game.

 

I really hope Crackdown 3 has this, will help massively with the agility orbs :lol:

Last question for now; the missing (fish) wife quest;

  Reveal hidden contents

the highlighted text in the log indicates that she has ended up at Lake Hylia, I've been round half the lake, am I in the right place?

?

 

Yup. I missed her several times because

I mistook her for a Lizalfos; she was hanging out surprisingly near a bunch of them, and so I thought she was one of their gang when I saw her swimming around. D'oh!

Well you're a good chunk further than me, so I can't answer fully!  I've just about finished the Plateau and I'm just really digging how terrified I am of attempting to fight more than one bokoblin.   Not from a threat point of view, but from a chew-through-my-inventory perspective!  The regenerating health seems to kick in very quickly, it's tough!  I'm sure I'll eventually reach the point where I'm confident that I can take things on, but right now I'm loving having to play it a little more.. cautiously.

Hehe, I did feel a couple of the funnies were a bit forced, but I can let it slide because Matt & Quinns are the best. 

 

He made some awesome points, I think. The bit about where the game resides was bang on, you look at the most important part of the game - the world - 99% of the time.  I definitely feel that's a good way of explaining what it is I feel is such a draw for the games I love. 

 

And I think the bit about hiding mechanics was really interesting too. I definitely think the best part of any game is the 'learning', the bit where everything is a bit new and strange, figuring out bits and pieces is so satisfying.  But once you've got a good hold on things, when you really know what you're doing, the experience can dull a little. 

 

I definitely feel a bit dismayed that I figured out how to parry the Guardians so early, because it kinda made them trivial after that. Would've enjoyed some more frantic escapes from them before I'd worked it out. :D

Even when the game gives you a very 'gamey' overlay like the Shrine Locator it still makes is vague enough that you have to engage more with the world than with the detector. It only tells you that you're getting warmer/colder. You still have to work out what that means in relation to everything around you. You can't just follow-the-pings.

 

The Matt Lees video is fantastic. Makes me want to delete my save and make a visit to Lacuna, Inc.

Ah man, just completed the middle set of master sword trials. They were fucking stupidly good.  Did it on my first try! :D

 

I wish there was a randomly generated version of this trial, purely for fun. That would be so good.

Spoiler

The dark areas were my favourite part of it. I was all 'oh shit, what on earth have they put in here now?' :wub: Luckily the enemies weren't too tough.

@dood re: Dragons

If it's the fire dragon you're after, there's a bridge over the canyon, right beside some stables (the one you'd probably pass on the way to the Rito). 



 

Head there for about 7am ;)

 

 

The DLC has got me right back into this, I've got most of the new clothing bar the teleport medallion, and made it to room 11 in the trials (I think) before dying by accident (right before it sounds like you can save? FFS) 

 

After that just went wandering where I had gaps in the map - I now have about 40 more Koroks (close to 320 now) and, according to the map, I'm now over 50% complete :D

 

(... after 150+ hours)

Down to the last 8 shrines now, I have quests for two of them which I haven't been able to work out yet but no idea where the remaining six are. 

 

Found three tonight by exploring some areas I hadn't been to yet, thanks to the Hero's Path, two of those being quest ones. 

 

How many Shrine Quests are there please, stick the answer in a spoiler just in case? I have

37 so far, so I'm guessing there's 40 in total?

There's a little counter below the quest description box.

Haha! When you wear it, it shows the enemy's energy in numbers and the health bar.

 

It says that on the description!!  Did you only just get it?!

I'm hitting my stride now, I have gained access to the Divine Beast Vah Ruta.

 

But, before I went in I thought I'd go and find the rest of that fishy armour. Sure enough 4 hours later I went back to Vah Ruta and switched the game off because it was way past my bed time. 

 

Combat is starting to click now too, especially since I've started to pick my fights. So if there's a Lion headed, horse body wanker I will simply run away, it may be cowardly, but I'm not eating all my grilled acorns on a loosing fight, no sir. Speaking of food I have found all sorts of weird and wonderful recipes. I'm a keen cook myself and have no idea how a carp, some Hyrule wheat and an apple can make a mushroom skewer, but there you go. Some of the stamina boosting stuff is very useful, and figuring how to get extra heart boosts is quite simple if you read the food descriptions. I must admit I thought the micro managing  of food etc would become tiresome, but I actually really enjoy it. In any other game I'd describe it as a fun mini game, but in this it's just a fun part of the whole game.

 

But yeah, still too scared of Lynels, don't really see that changing any time soon. Sneaking around photographing one made me feel more Bill Oddie than Jimmy Stewart.
