Tarrey Town quest is pretty long and involved. Thought I would get something nicer at the end!

Alright, 113 Shrines secured, 297 Korok seeds (in only caring about getting to 300 there). My quest log shows 5 more Shrine Quests, so there must be a couple just sitting out in the open I missed... No idea where to go next tho lol. Might just do some Side Quests hoping they point me toward places I've neglected.

Also a thing I just noticed: the monster shop guy says there are 40 each of Hinox and Talus, and he says he wants me to go kill each of them. Is that a thing? Is there a reward there? He doesn't offer a current count so I have no clue if that's a "quest" or just a fun bit of trivia.

Dog the real reward is the friends we made along the way.

Had to look up the locations of the last 12 shrines, but that's all 120 shrines.

Can a cooking pot be lit without using a torch? What if it's raining?

I used to keep a torch in my inventory especially for this purpose, but then I noticed that there is usually one provided next to cooking pots in villages so I thought I'd better free up that inventory slot for a weapon...

Well now I've come across a cooking pot in an enemy camp at the eastern edge of the map, and I'm in need to cook some meals. Don't have a torch. I thought no problem I'll use a fire arrow to light it up, but surprisingly that didn't work after multiple tries. Even tried a flame sword and other fire-generating weapons. Nothing is lighting up this cooking pot :/

It has been constantly raining in the area, so I wonder if that's why? Or cooking pots can only be lit by a torch? That would be lame. Or did I just encounter a bug?

Can't remember the last time I was this hooked on a game. I love just exploring the world that is out there and going on my own quests and adventures. I can definitely get the complaints about the dungeons. I wish they were longer and more involved - maybe with a mini boss or two. Oh well, this is still master class open world design.

I found that giant horse yesterday after going back to the plateau and gliding off a random direction. Even found the quest attached to it, didn't know that was a thing.

You're so tiny standing next to it, one of the coolest secrets/easter eggs in the game

111 shrines. When I hit 120 I'm done with the game. May just look up if there were any cool sidequests I've missed, but not going for 100% there. Finding those Zora statues for instance seems so boring.

You can definitely light them without using a torch.

I've used but Flame weapons and Red ChuChu Jelly and flint for sure, and would guess that I've used a fire arrow as well.

The thunder plains shrine quest challenge (near the giant mushrooms) where you have to get the 4 balls into their pockets:
---------------------------------------------------------
How did you guys solve it?

I used arrows to knock two of the balls off the high place they were at. And 2 other ones that were outside the raised circular area, I used the balloon things (2 on each ball) to get them to go up and then shot at the balls with a few arrows to nudge them in the right direction. I made sure to place them somewhere quite close to where I wanted them to go and quite high up, there was a place with a fire nearby that I used.

I felt like there may have been another solution though. I tried golf for a while after raising the balls up on water tower sheikah things but it wasn't happening.

Arrows are not an issue for me anymore, followed that tip posted earlier where you can go to one of the rocks off the shore from Eventide, there's a chest there with 10 arrows. You can save scum for a while (I'd recommend while watching a video or something). Ended up with 999 arrows :P

It's the game's own fault. I want more arrows because I like using the bow loads. Don't want to waste my time collecting things, cooking and selling to grab just a 100 or so. And I can't make them from tree branches which is kinda silly. So, that leaves me with one option and I'm glad to have done it! Might have to do it again after a couple dozen more hours.

True, but only if you break it or (I think) misplace it otherwise after finding it. The durability it yields is so great that I'd find it unlikely to really happen if you had the energy/skill to pop over to get it in the first place. Fair enough, you can also get it really, really early if you have insider info starting out. I'm excluding those situations.

That all said, I liked the quest alright. I wish more were nearly as involved between inhabitants of Hyrule.

How do you do the old man quest for the cloth? I talked to him jear his house but he only taught me about cutting down trees.

After you activate the tower, visit his house and he will pop up and have a dialog about food. Complete his cooking quest and he will give you the reward. But you can buy that reward later if you didn't get it. Also, the old man should give it to you (or you found it in a chest?) when you climb the snow mountain (I'm not sure about this one since I didn't do that way)

I didn't realize that it was only available under certain conditions, I broke mine fairly quickly...about 10 failed guardian laser parrys will do it. Luckily I'm good at snowbowling

lol! Fair enough. I tried to keep mine as backup, so I don't have a great gauge on exactly how much punishment it can take. Perhaps I'm overestimating its abilities! Awesome item though.

There are lots of features that other Zelda games had which seemed superfluous and BOTW made worthwhile.

Congrats! You may want to get all the memories for reasons...

In admittance, it isn't much and I wouldn't even scoff checking on Youtube instead, but just a thought.

It's really well balanced. Big part of that is how every single item seems to have some kind of use so you can't just blindly sell much.

Oh yeah,

Considering most shields break after one failed parry it's still at least 5x as durable as any other shield I've seen

It's just a "medal" you get in your Key Item inventory that doesn't do anything, like the reward for 900 Korok seeds. But if you refight a Hinox or Talus you defeated, it does mark them as previously defeated, so you can sort of keep track.

From my experience, more you loot a weapon and more bonus the new version will get like the enemy scaling but I don't know when the game apply the scaling on weapons.

I assume you are referring to Smash Bros Link Amiibo his exclusive drops are;

-Epona, note you can only do this once per save file so it's wise to do this near a stable so you can register her.

- Cap of Twilight

-Tunic of Twilight

-Legging of Twilight.

If you mean Wolf Link amiibo he doesn't drop anything and is just used to summon him into the game.

It's powered up when you in an area with malice or enemies that are corrupted by ganon, ie the Guardian in the overworld.

Couple of quick questions:

Do you have to change the Switch's system language to play in Japanese, or is using a Japanese profile enough?

And is there something I have to do to un-register a horse, or is there even a way to do this? I'd like to try my hand at getting the special horses but I already have 5 registered.
