The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Recommended Posts

Get yourself a woodcutter's axe which does the job best and lasts longest! Likewise, there are specific tools for gems and rocks, etc. You'll find stuff in time, no doubt.

You want a hammer for the ores. 

 

I need to build up a selection of weapons as I have just defeated a large monster

in the desert... Like actually in the desert

which I wasn't even convinced I'd be able to fight. I'm playing on master mode and was down to bombs at the end. Regenerating enemy health really keeps the pressure on.

 

I think I've explored most of the map, now onto my second devine beast, and to actually advance the story.

No - this is a clean break from pretty much every previous Zelda, especially in the overall structure. But also in just about every detail of the game mechanics...!

 

Classic Zeldas lock you out of regions until you complete a dungeon (a series of interlocking rooms forming a navigational puzzle) to get an item that allows you to pass whatever is gating off the next region, with the dungeon boss acting as a tutor for that weapon. Nearest you get to those dungeons are the Shrines.

 

This you can pretty much go where you want to from the off, once you're off the plateu. And even 'though weapons do get better as you take on better enemies, you'll still find yourself taking on goblins with sticks at times in the late game...

 

I reckon this is way more n00b friendly than any other game in the series - some of those old Zeldas were tough.

Buy chucking them remote bomb things at them don't break any weapons atall and they are unlimited :)

Hey guys, so I've been playing this for a good bit now and I'm. Not actually sure where to head, I've done the first 3 shrines bit, got to a village and met impa, gone to another village to get my slate sorted for taking pics, back to Impa, taken a pic, back to Impa...... 

 

Now what? I've been going round for ages climbing towers and discovering shrines but main quest wise where do people think I should head next? Will the bosses I'm searching for be too hard for me at this stage? I just need a bit of guidance of where I should be heading to continue the story. 

 

I know it sounds like I'm after some hand holding because that's exactly what it is :lol:

Most people do the Zora divine beast first, so maybe head there. I remember doing that with only four or five hearts so you don’t need to be that powered up to handle it. 

 

But really, the choice is yours and that’s what makes it so great.

In case you haven't figured it out, you can toggle the goal markers to different objectives in the menu. Stick it on the Divine Beasts one.

I've found the kit you get from the Zora one super useful for getting about in water. Helping me explore coasts and lakes etc a lot easier.

Played about 40 hours or so of this now and only done one Divine Beast (the Zora one)! I was a bit lost to start with but actually once you start exploring and talking to people there's always something else to do/see.

 

Spoiler

Currently trying to figure out how to get to the maze type thing by the Akkala Tech Lab

 

BTW, where does that leaf dude with the maracas go? He was on some hillside but then he buggered off somewhere and I don't remember where he said he was going!

Head north, to somewhere where you’d find lots of trees...

After he buggered off from the hillside I found him at a stable. He's gone from there now and I haven't seen him in a long time, I've got 150 seeds to trade in...

There’s one bit in this that’s eluded me...

 

Spoiler

In the Eldin Mountains region there’s a goron in an incomplete tunnel and it seems like helping him blast it open is something you can do, but I never found a tool capable of it. Is it possible?

Think you might have to talk to someone in town, first.

Put about 40 hours into this but haven't touched it in an age, so much so that I can't remember what I've done and the thought of jumping back in is a bit daunting so I'm thinking of starting a new game.

 

Just a quick question - is the DLC worth it? There was an upgrade or something to the map with the DLC if I recall?

The first DLC added the Hero's Path, which showed the path around the map you've taken since you started. It's worth having that after about 200 hours play, but not if you're starting the game again. It would spoil your exploration.

 

The first DLC also added a useful mask for searching for Korok's. Now that is worth having.

I went for the 2nd ‘set’ of the Master Trials & was doing pretty well, but then I got to a single decayed Guardian where his positioning made it clear that you supposed to take him out with a shield parry.

 

I’m usually pretty good at nailing the timing, with the audio cue & all, but one slight mistiming = run over. :(

 

I’m pretty sure that they only up the anti from there, so... back to practice.

Took people's advice and went for the Zoras Domain one, just beat my first Lynel at the 50th time of asking, honestly when I beat him I literally cheered out loud much to the dismay of the Mrs trying to get the baby to sleep. 

 

After he'd beat me 30 odd times I thought to myself that I don't have the skills to be able to do it, I couldn't get the hang of backflipping out of the way of his attacks and one hit from him killed me, but I persisted and on my final attempt I didn't take any damage atall.

I’ve still not seriously gone after a Lynel. I strip down to trunks and pot lid combo to take out Guardians in suitably humiliating style, but Lynels I’m leaving well alone.

I finished the game without killing a single Lynel. 

 

I thought you were forced to defeat one when approaching Calamity Ganon for the final battle? Unless that was only the route I took.

Nope. You can run away from them (as I did) for the whole game.

IIRC that battle occurs if you enter the keep in which it's situated & there is no warning that you're going to be locked into it, but you can bypass it by climbing around/over the building.

 

Just imagine if other games did that...

 

Minion 1: Where's that hero guy?  He should be here by now!

Minion 2:  Dunno.  Boss got all of us set up here to wear him down over multiple floors, & we haven't seen...

(sounds of battle suddenly start from the top floor, both minions look up)

Minion 1:  What?!

Minion 2: How?!

Minion 1: He...bypassed us?!?!

Minion 2: The nerve!

Minion 1: My union rep will hear about this!
