This is the cutscene I got on my first/current playthrough.
I climbed the tower and got the quest to meet Sidon, but I took a detour, got distracted, forgot about the quest and paraglided into Zora Domain from the cliffs.

given that the scenic route to zora's domain is one of the cooler parts of the game, i'd hate for someone to experience this first

One issue I have with Gerudo is the sand seals, which, I know I praised before, but the ones you find in the wild are both so fucking slow AND more difficult to sneak up on than they should be. Additionally, the ones you can rent go away after like 5 minutes of gameplay or warping, where they should function similarly to your horse (including coming when called if you ask me). Everywhere else in the game I refuse to fast travel but in the Gerudo desert it feels necessary.

Something else that seems like a missed opportunity is access to Gerudo Town without the disguise. After completion of the missions it feels kind of pointless to have to dress up as Twink Link to get into the town, especially since 70% of the occupants know you're voe.

Question for you.

Considering you're not a huge fan of Nintendo's Amiibo business plan (if I remember correctly) but also don't like """modding,""" what's your stance on the 3rd-party Amiibo Cards people have been selling that allow players of BOTW access to the exclusive outfits like the Fierce Diety set, Epona, and Skyward Sword outfit?

as much as i hate amiibos, i hate trampling on IP rights even more

as unfortunate as it is, if we're interested in using nintendo's products, and we care about having a moral compass, we're pretty much obliged to directly purchase literally anything that nintendo wants us to pay money for

the fact that i don't support amiibos means that i don't get to reap any of their benefits; to do otherwise would be hypocritical, or having my cake and eating it too

i won't stop anyone else from getting their hands on bootlegs if they want to, but for me, two wrongs don't make a right

though i can totally understand wanting to, and i can understand the frustration

nintendo ought to produce amiibo cards themselves for people who just want the content that they're being locked out of, and aren't necessarily interested in hunting for extortionately-priced toys as well

yeah, that's about what i expected. i've bought the amiibo cards because nintendo isn't making the amiibos i want, so they wouldn't be making any money off the product as it stands -- why pay 60 bucks to someone other than nintendo for the majora's mask toy when i can spend 10 on the card that lets me get the stuff i want? i'm okay with admitting i'm wrong. i'd rather not give nintendo my money (and thus let them know that i think what they're doing is okay). but some of the exclusive stuff is too cool to pass up.

So this challenge run didn't turn out to be very challenging. It was a little more difficult on the first playthrough because I didn't understand the game's hidden mechanics but now that I know what materials I need to fast track my gear upgrades it's extremely easy.

In the future I think a more challenging challenge run would be what I call the "Canon Run." Essentially you're only allowed to use the Champion's Tunic and the Hylian Boots. In rain, you're allowed to use the Hylian Hood. This means there's a greater emphasis on cooking and gathering materials rather than getting the correct gear for the environment (something that becomes trivial late game).

still not fantastic but certainly manageable

Supremely excited for this DLC... I really wish they'd actually gone with a New Game + option, though.

I've almost maxed out every armour set available in the base game. All that's left is 2 pieces of the Rubber set (can't be bothered to hunt down 20 more Electric Lizalfos in the desert) the Snow/Sand Boots (Rushrooms can fuck off), Zora Helm, Sheikah set (haven't encountered a single Stealthfin Trout) and Climber set (Swift Violet eludes me as well).

So thankful they reduced the number of Star Fragments necessary to max out some sets, including the Amiibo armor. By the end of next week I should have access to: OoT outfit, Fierce Diety, Skyward Sword outfit, and the TP outfit. They all require (except FD IIRC) 12 fragments each, instead of 36 EACH, like before.

You can buy the amiibo or the amiibo card for 10 bucks, but no you have to buy unfortunately.

There are rumours of a Year of the Wild edition with everything on disc though

1 in 20 Korok Seeds are fucking RETARDED. Anyone know about the one in Applease Forest? How the fuck was someone supposed to pick up on that? I'm really struggling with the Hyrule Castle Town Ruins entrance seed, too.

If there's one thing the completionist in me can't stand it's collectathons that don't have lists for every item. I'm spending a couple hours over the last 2 days trying to exterminate every Talus and Hinox in Hyrule to get my Medal of Honour from Kilton. After I finish my run, I talk to him only to find out I'm missing 2 of 40 Taluses and 1 of 40 Hinox. And there's no real way for me to figure out which ones I'm missing except to walk up to them and initiate the fight.

Korok seeds have this problem even worse. If there was at least a method checking how many more seeds you need per tower region, or if the Korok mask pointed you in the direction of the closest Korok seed rather than just jingling when you're in view of the seed already, these wouldn't exist.

Nothing infuriates me more. I'm a huge fan of checking off lists so when they don't provide them it really bothers me. Especially if they have trophies/achievements attached to them.

Just found this amazing interactive map that shows every Korok seed, Talus and Hinox location and you can filter through to find anything you could possibly want.

Thanks to the interactive map, I've got all 3 Medal of Honors from Kilton. Now I have to decide on filling my compendium up (the easier choice tbh) or collecting more Korok seeds.

Fun fact: you can spend money at the Hateno Research Lab to fill in missing entries in the Compendium. For example, if you happened to miss the dungeon bosses, you can buy them for something like 500 Rupees each. A smart move on Nintendo's part as a safety net for absent-minded individuals such as myself.

New Champion Amiibos releasing Nov. 10th, will include new helmets for each Champion:
Quote
With the Champion amiibo coming out on November 10th, learn more about what each helm does in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
When any of the Divine Helms are equipped with Ancient Cuirass and Ancient Greaves (All armor items need to be upgraded level 2 β˜…β˜… or above), you’ll also trigger a set bonus, Ancient Proficiency, which increases the attack power of Ancient or Guardian series weapons. All of them will increase guard from ancient energy attacks, while defense level and required materials for level-up are the same as those of Ancient Helm. Enemies' remaining HP/full HP will also be visible like the Champion's Tunic.

Additionally, there are specific effects for each item:
- Vah Rudania Divine Helm: Flame Guard (Lv1)
- Vah Ruta Divine Helm: Swim Speed Up (Lv1)
- Vah Naboris Divine Helm: Electricity Resistance (Lv1)
- Vah Medoh Divine Helm: Cold Resistance (Lv1)




Vah Rudania Helm:




Vah Ruta Helm:




Vah Naboris Helm:




Vah Medoh Helm:




Medoh and Naboris are the only ones that look cool to me but it's nice to see additional Ancient helmets considering the one in-game looks terrible.

Holy shit. There's an additional scene of Link and Zelda looking at the castle with the 4 Champions and King Rhoam looking down from the main tower if you don't skip the credits. Pretty awesome.
