Abandoned volcano area because it was super boring and fire lizards kept killing me. Went south and ran into a beach town, then managed to activate 2 towers and have massively expanded my map! Yay! #botw
I'm doing my very best to not look at walkthroughs or guides unless I'm REALLY stuck on a shrine or specific plot quest thing, as I think it's more fun to wander around and explore. It DOES mean that I'm currently 40+ hours into playing and still only have one divine beast tho #botw
Went back over to volcano area; accidentally skipped over a bunch of exploration side quest things and made it to rock eater town pretty easily. Then got halfway thru the fire lizard beast quest before deciding to take a break and get upgraded armor instead! #botw
Sucked it up and finished the divine fire lizard quest and actually it was EASIER than the water elephant quest because I just kept shooting ice arrows at Gabon until he died and it took like 5 min #botw
Stumbled across the Big Sword almost completely by accident ("almost" because NPCs kept telling me it was in a forest, and then I found the Lost Forest and thought that seemed suitable so I went into it) but don't have enough hearts to survive getting it, so now I'm trying to find more shrines & farm spirit orbs #BOTW
Accidentally wandered up to the cult compound and wiped out the cult members in front of the main entrance before I even got the lightning helmet quest. Nice!
Did have to use Youtube videos to get thru the cult compound, because sneaking missions make me nervous. #BOTW
Last few days have been farting around avoiding the giant metal bird quest. Still trying to find Dinraal— he REFUSES to show up at Tabanatha Bridge no matter what time
I’m there, so now I’m hunting him up near the giant skeleton off Mt Doom #botw
Okay, so I guess my Dinraal is on a totally weird schedule because he never shows up at any regular time. I missed him at the skeleton at 5:30am, and then fell off the edge of the world trying to get him the next day at 2:30am. Now I'm waiting slightly downwind from the skeleton at 9:30 pm, hopefully far away from the Lynel I just saw prowling around...
A consequence of avoiding main roads because they’re “too scary” is that I keep finding Stables that I should’ve found HOURS AGO #botw
I defeated a purple lynel! 🤗
I really need to work on a) dodging b) parrying c) not panicking and opening the slate’s zoom feature instead of just moving the camera before I get to Ganon so I guess I’m gonna be killing a lot of lynels for practice #botw
#botw accomplishments: Divine bird has been fixed— I only fell off it once— and I unlocked the tower closest to Hyrule Castle, which means both the divine beasts quest and my map are complete!
Still have a lot of shrine/side quests to do, and I want to finish upgrading all my armor (and finding missing pieces). Kinda nervous about the Calamity Ganon fight, so I’m gonna dodge it until I feel too guilty to not continue the story.
Finally watched a how-to kill Guardian Stalkers video and tried it today— I did it! Fairly easily, too, since I had some good Guardian weapons on me. I keep forgetting how useful Stasis+ can be on enemies. It doesn’t hold them for very long, buts it’s just long enough to get close and stab them a lot. #botw
I think hinoxes are the cutest monsters in #BOTW 🥸 they’re just big sleepy guys who hoard weapons and fish!
Should I buy the #botw DLC now before I get to the final Ganon fight? Is the extra story/clothes/etc worth forking over the $20?
Me after 150+ hours playing #botw : I’m pretty good at solving shrine puzzles 🥰
EX The Champions’ Ballad quest: 🤡
#BOTW : have been busy trying to find the DLC clothes and finishing up the Champions quests things. Super slow-going because I’m trying to not use walkthroughs— and my map isn’t filled out all the way, so some of the places I needed to get to were undiscovered.
Still, making progress! Found maybe 1/4 of the treasures and have gotten to the final monk battle in the quest, where I rage quit because he is TOO FAST
Finally went back and beat the final monk boss in the Champions Trials quest thingamabob & now I have a motorcycle!!! I love it!!! I feed it apples and zoom past monsters!!!!! #botw
@tozka I enjoy reading about your progress in this game and the reasoning used to cave in and buy
the DLC cracked me up.
@tozka I was the same amount of grumpy when my stalhorse was rejected. Also when my bear was rejected. :(
@MK that Stalhorse LOVED me! I fed it an apple and it had hearts around its head!!
And then morning came and it turned into dust. ._.
