No invites yet on my end to the Nintendo Discord. I am in the general GAF one though.
This game keeps amazing me months later lol
I am a sucker for exploring so this will be no different but I was asking more about combat, etc. Do I want to go all in or is the game a lot like Dark Souls?Really, take it slow. Explore a lot and don't rush. Because if you do rush it you will regret it later. If you are distracted by something, go with whatever distracts you.
I did the whole thing in layers. All towers - all maps, all towns that I could see on the maps and so on. But I missed a ridiculously huge amount on the way and wish that I had slowed down earlier. Hell, it took me 310 hours to get around to defeating Ganon and I still wish I had taken it slower!

Ill bear that in mind! MerciI wouldn't know about Dark Souls - never played it. Also, I'm pretty bad at combat. My primary early-game skill in BOTW was running away.
That said, you'll learn more and faster if you go all-in on enemies from the beginning. Sure, you'll die a lot, but you'll also learn about what to not do.
The only lesson I learned in late game that I wish I had cottoned on to earlier is that your most powerful weapon is an empty weapon slot. If you can steal an enemy's weapon he can't use it against you, and you win twice over.
Ill bear that in mind! Merci
Is the Master Sword a post game reward?
Hey, happy to keep this one spinning (slowly) even if it is just the two of us. Better than nothing. I've beat Ganon but still have a whole heap of stuff to do and am still discovering surprising things - not that I can remember where many of them are ...
Just beat the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. First one down! Only this time I discovered a hell of a lot of stuff I never did the first go around.
Don't forget to revisit the route to Zora's domain and all the stuff around it now that it's not raining. It's a really pleasant area and relatively peaceful. Also easier to shoot things now you can actually see them! I only remembered to go back there last week. There's just so much I've missed!
I spent about 6 hours just exploring one mountain.
There's a region below that with another village and tech lab and you can fast travel to this village and get a free hammer (every time you visit the village) at one specific spot across the bridge near the house - you'll know what i mean when you find it.I'm 10-12 hours into the game. Hammers are really useful to smash stones to get gems, but they seem to be pretty rare. I'm at the area where there is a ranch, where you can capture your first horse, right after the twin peaks. Is there an easy way to get hammers at this point in the game?

But not as good as huge rock swords.... you'll seeHey thanks for the replies. Yeah I eventually went back to the stasis shrine. Very easy to get. Bombs are kinda messy. Hammers also work really well against those giant rock monsters.
Yep, although guardians (the ones that walk around the world in various places) are not that easy to kill with their 1500 HP, but if you have a bow which can shoot 5 arrows at a time with 32 damage each or if you have ancient arrows which are expensive as hell and can only be made from guadian parts.... And there's also Lynel which are much tougher than any guardian and very hard to kill even after you've spent 160-170 hours in the game.Does anyone know if the bloodmoon will revive those huge rock monsters and those cyclops? Oh, and guardians? It would be an easy way to mine those crystals and guardian parts.
I'm not that far in the game. I got a little fed up with managing my inventory and decided to make it to that forest where Hestu(?) says he'll be, where you can give him the Korok seeds. I'm trying to reach the center of the forest but I can't. The woods are misty and if you take the wrong path the screen becomes white and it takes you back to the last checkpoint. I've been looking for signs that would point me in the right direction but I can find them. At first I thought I had to keep a lit torch with me but it doesn't seem to help.
I don't want you guys to tell me how but, before I waste anymore time, I simply wanted to know if this is a place you can get through at any point in the game, you just have to figure out how, or if you need a specific item to get through those woods, in which case running around trying to figure it out would just be a gigantic waste of time.
