Idk, maybe you could just make it if you warp to the shrine with the lord of the mountain and glide over?

You can always check in with the guy at dueling peaks stable who will tell you the day's moon. Or you could just backup an old save once the blood moon happens to go back before it starts

I guess you could check with Hino in the morning of that day and have a full day's notice as a result, but it's still inconvenient to expect players to check back there every ingame day until a chance comes up.

This game is a dream, I'm loving it! The only thing pissing me off is that I need a fucking amiibo to get Link's classic costume... :-(

There is no other way to get the costume??? Even as DLC? I wouldn't mind paying a few bucks for the costume...

By the way, a loading screen tip says that it will lead you to anything you have set the radar to detect, which is pretty cool.

Ah, cheers. My friend wants a wolf companion for his quest, so this info is much appreciated.

From one of the analysis videos, seems like you can use stasis on some weapons to prevent enemies from grabbing them? On the video I saw a moblin was going to grab a tree trunk but the player used stasis on it and the moblin was no longer able to pick it up.

Pretty crazy if thats what really happened!

This one is really easy. Did it today. Made a fire by the platform, slept till the evening a couple of times. the third time I woke up the platform was lit up. It doesn't have to be midnight on a blood moon, just the same evening.

This is spoilers for completing all the shrines, but if you want to know:

After completing all the shrines, you get a costume called "Tunic of the Wild", which is a redesign that is heavily based off of the NES tunic. It's a great alternative if you don't want to hunt down the 8-Bit figurine.

This makes sense, Stasis freezes items from all types of movement including gravity so it wouldn't make sense enemies could pick it up.

This comment is so true; I also love how it reinvents a lot of Zelda traditions in new ways that aren't even immediately obvious. For example, in most Zeldas your primary means of getting rupees are cutting grass and killing enemies. Here, neither yield rupees, but cutting grass reveals bugs and lizards, and enemies drop parts; mixing both gets you elixirs that sell quite well.

QUOTE=Megasoum;232459993]Huh...

I just noticed that my MS is doing 60 damage... Isn't it 30 when you first pick it up? What affects that?[/QUOTE]

When you're close to certain kinds of enemies (mostly guardians, I think), or in dungeons, it will glow blue and deal 60 damage.

Anything else I should know about increasing it's hearts?

Wolf link will stay with you for 20 mins or so and disappear, but unlike other amiibo, you can call him again the same day. Unless he dies. If he dies, you can use him again in 24 hours

You can see the red moon in the sky way before the cutscene starts, so just check the sky once in a while and teleprot to the shirine when you get one

If Zelda has her own study, don't you think the King should have one too?

Look around the Library a little harder if you want to get a peek into the King's perspective on things.

So i finally finished the game, after 60h. At one point I got tired of shrines and decided to just finish it up

BotW is a great game, there's no denying it. But there is a lot that can be improved, IMO, in the next zelda games. Here is my short list:

-Better dungeons ( and more of them)
-More enemy variety... Seeing the same bokoblins and moblins everywhere was honestly boring.
-Better bosses ( seriously, bosses in this game are pretty lame... Lynels are harder and more fun to fight. All of the bosses have the same old EYE SWEETSPOT!!! DONT SHOOT MY EYE PLEASE weakness
- Make rain less annoying lol
-Make dashes slightly better. The current ones are useful but they feel too floaty to me, you can get hit out of the air with some attacks with them even if you use them properly because of how slow the dashes are. This would improve the gameplay a lot IMO
- Less shrines please... and other ways to get stamina/ hearts that aren't just shrines
-Shrines could be more appealing aesthetically, it would help making them less ''samey''. For example shrines in Death Mountain could be fire themed, or have more of a Goron look, etc.

All that being said, BotW is probably still one of the best Zelda game ever made. Good job on nintendo for going from ''Handholding babymode enemies hit for a quarter health'' zelda games to a ''Challengingly difficult get one shot by everything son'' zelda game

Got frustrated trying to find the eighth gerardo statue during that quest and looked it up online. Turns out the in-game hint as to its location wasn't 100% accurate. I hate having to do it but sometimes I just want to move on.

Next is trying to figure out how to get to that back section of the desert that the game is gating me off from.

I just transferred my wiiu save file of BotW and it has it all there.

I used ddd (need to have homebrew launcher on your wiiu). Took a few seconds and I have my whole album and compendium shots!!!









Don't have to worry about this bullshit:



Or the 48 shot limit!

It's a bug that happens when you put the Switch to sleep too many times with Zelda running. You can avoid it by making sure to quit the game and restart it every so often between sessions.

I just saw one guardian shot another when I was fighting three at once, felt good as it destroyed a fee limbs. Not sure what the damage was, I would guess the same as a reflected beam. Still hard to pull off, they need to be at opposite ends or their line of sight will get cut off.

This game never stop to surprise me!

It's probably one of the best side quests I've done in video games, and I play JRPGs a lot which has a ton of them. Such a heartfelt experience, with feel good music to boot.

Does anyone know what the four treasure types are for the compendium? I'm only figuring out treasure chests and the smashable rocks?

I just finished the main story

hit the button to open the paraglider during the cut scene where the floor falls out and link floated to the ground, had a quick try at Ganon last time I played and was seriously pleasantly surprised that there is a different way for this to happen!

I finished with 30.60% and I doubt I'm going to play much more but I had a LOT of fun with this, it's a truly brilliant game. Next open world game I promise myself not to rush through and really take my time.

What kind of runs are people doing to vary up their BotW playthroughs?

I beat the game with all divine beasts and memories the other day, and wanna maybe start a new playthrough, though I'm still debating about finishing up all the shrines and side quests.

Been thinking about doing a straight to Ganon run, but that wouldn't be too long (probably). Kind of hoping Hard mode has some more survival aspects to it, I wouldn't mind replaying the game and having to watch my hunger and stuff.
