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!
Been avoiding Ganon for almost a week but I’m basically at the point where I’m ready to get in there EXCEPT I wanted to find all the memories before I kill him, to get a better(?) ending. And I am having a VERY hard time finding them on my own. 💀 #botw
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
Currently following the wall on the Great Plateau (looking for Koroks/ treasure chests) & it's making me itchy for an in-depth history of wtf happened to everything. Like, yeah, there's ruins and stuff from Calamity, but some of the really old structure look like they've been decaying for centuries.
I don't really like fighting games so I didn't want to get Age of Calamity just to get more backstory for #botw but maybe I'll watch the cut scenes and see if there's anything interesting...
Shout out to Wolf Link on YT for making the video that got me started looking obsessively at the details of the game in the first place 👍
