How the hell did they pull this off?
It's funny because gathering ingredients can be tedious sometimes (to me anyway), but it does give you a different perspective on the world. The other day I had to gather a lot of Swift Violets, which are plants that only grow on cliffs. So I spent two hours on the Hebra mountains climbing cliffs in extreme cold, defintetely something I hadn't done do in this region before.
Another example would be some electrical bugs that are common on the Akkala region at night. You can find them on trees so I did some exploring in the forests of the region. The gathering is nothing too interesting but the world makes it worth it.
