EDIT:

How do you know someone's grinding for the Ancient Armor upgrades?

Answer: When they have enough materials to craft...76 Ancient Arrows. Need those Ancient Reactor Cores. Only 5 more to go, then every piece requires shooting star fragments >.<

Same. This game is just dominating my brain in the best possible way.

I've been using the fire rod in grassy areas to create updrafts and fly over enemies then snipe them from mid air with arrows. I love that you can just do stuff like that.

If its the one I'm thinking of, you need to actually jump to be launched.

Not OP, but this has been bugging me since I bailed on the chest a few days ago. Do you jump from the top one to the bottom, which sends the chest up in the air, and then it comes back down which shoots you up?

I don't know if this is the solution but something I did in a different shrine might be helpful.

In a different shrine where you get flinged in to the air, I discovered if you hit jump at the moment you were thrown upwards you could go much higher.

I stood on the top one (the horizontal one) then used the magnet to set the chest as high as it would go on the other side of the top see saw, then jumped right as it landed. Took me a few tries to do correctly.

Just finished this one!

Use the metal chest as a counterweight!

For the final chest you have to sling shot to get to it but it is shit so you can skip it.

Yeah, thanks. Cheesed that quest with the ability you get in Vah Medoh :P

Now time to add that item to the Hyrule Compendium and pray.


EDIT: Aww, you can't add those :(

Is it just me or is it easier to take out guardians on foot rather than on a horse? Speaking of guardians I wish they offered a bigger challenge, I just arrow them, climb and abuse slo-mo from there on to get the job done.

You have to hold the drop button rather than just pressing it, and you'll hear a suction noise and it'll stick on.

If you just calmly walk up behind them they won't ever notice you. Should they see you, just sprint towards them until they're in Stasis+ range. Then chop off their legs while they're helpless. Walker guardians really stop being scary once you get that ability.

They upgrade armor down the road but seeing as you need cash to GET to those upgrade I say sell them and farm them later. Speaking of faming, I really need to abuse the bowling minigame.

So for the last week I've basically been exploring the eastern portion of the world in Breath of the Wild. I haven't explored west of the starting area at all and only gave the areas directly north and south of the Great Plateau a quick once over.

I was in a very familiar area and I started stalking a deer around a ridge to show my daughter how I could ride it. When I got to the top of the hill I realized there's a humongous snow capped mountain I've never even noticed before sitting right where I've been exploring this entire week.

This game.

I used Stasis to get them up there. Took a couple tries, but I had no other idea.

The Blood Moon is just a cutscene, as soon as it's done playing all the enemies and resources get respawned.

Ahh,k. That's what I figured, but the way some people were talking made it sound like better enemies are supposed to appear while the blood moon's still up or something.

Damn! You might be right. Everyone, both players and other developers weren't expecting Nintendo to brilliantly add this amount of awesomeness into the open world genre after years and years of open world game saturation and blandness. All of us thought that Witcher 3 was the peak of this genre but Nintendo simply knock them out with such brilliance, that I also believe the upcoming big ass games from top notch developers are going to analyze BotW and start adding similar elements to their games to make it as interactive as this Zelda game.
