?

Just wondering, are you playing this game on a WiiU or a Switch?

    So I've been wandering, and progressing in the game collecting clothes, hell yeah!
    Killed my first Guardian Stalker, Stone Talus and beat my first Major Strength Trial, so I felt very badass today (which is completely undeserved because I spammed a 5 shot bow in all three situations). I also completed the entire map, but there's still stuff for me to do, so I ain't fighting Ganon yet!

    The Master Sword has slain more trees than enemies, mostly because I forgot to use my korok seeds and I'm too lazy to go home and make room for a regular ax.

    Oh, Thanks @Aki@Aki for those horse tips, those were pretty cool to try out myself!

    Quick question, do you guys have a commonly used weapon class? Like One-Handed Sword, Two-handed Sword, Spears, Clubs, Axes, Bows, etc? (I use spears a lot, followed by two-handed swords.)

    If you need to get your hands on good weapons, farming Coliseum Ruins and Hinox is a great way to do so. Both of these scale; meaning that as you progress more and more through the game, the items they drop will be better and better. I'd suggest marking down Hinox, Talus and Lynels on your map so you can quickly traverse there and farm their stuff after a blood moon. So far, my best one-handed weapon is a base 84 Savage Lynel Sword (wear the barabarian armor set with that, and boom, lots of damage), and the best two-handed weapon I got is a base 102 Royal Guard Claymore from the Hyrule Castle. This is another great place to farm arrows and weapons. I went there pretty early, after just getting the Master Sword and beating my first Divine Beast, and I have to say that was the best decision I made. The place is filled with Royal and Royal Guard gear (a basic Royal Guard Shield has 70 def, a basic Royal Guard Sword has 48 atk, a basic Royal Guard Bow has 50 atk), so if you feel confident enough, I'd recommend to go there to stock up on resources every now and then. I'm sitting on like 200+ arrows of each type (only 50 ancient ones), and filled to the brim with epic gear. Lynels drop the best stuff though when you beat them. A great way to grab yourself some good swords, bows and shields; and in all honesty, they aren't too difficult to beat. Time your jumps to evade their attacks right, and just abuse the flurry rush. Maybe throw in a Stasis here and there for extra easy damage.

    Ah, @Luka S.J.@Luka S.J. Thanks for all those tips, I must have spent two hours wandering in Hyrule Castle, got a memory, completed some sidequests, and a couple of weapons to boot!
    I even beat my first Lynel, the one by Zora's Domain. (Then I had the bright idea to fight a Silver one.) The Stasis tip is really good, honestly, sometimes I forget I have runes besides the Camera and Remote Bombs.


    Edit: There are no new posts, so I'm just editing. I got all the memories now (Yay!) and I think I have a tip too.


    Funny story though, a Yiga Footsoldier attacked me in the middle of a thunderstorm, carrying a Demon Carver (You may see where this is going). The telltale sparks of an imminent lightning bolt form on the weapon then, BZZT-ZAP! The guy is obliterated, I didn't even see the usual teleport away on defeat.

    Edit 2: I took some pictures of some of my shenanigans. (You can copy to SD card in the album with Copy, but I was to lazy to do that before.)

    I started to play the game a week ago and I must say that this game took my breath away. To begin with, the game has amazing graphics and I was impressed with the level of detail in the game.Eventhough it was annoying when you are almost at the top of a mountain and your stamina runs out and also the fact that you can't climb when it is raining, it adds realisticness to the game. The soothing music which plays when you explore Hyrule gives a good feel while playing. I haven't played much and I am now in Zora's domain but I am loving it so far.
    I really wish they release a pokemon game for the switch with stunning graphics like this and a vast open world to explore.
