Random question - do you have floor standing fronts and a bookshelf sized centre speaker?  Does it get overwhelmed by the front left and right?

And it's over. 105 hours on the clock. After I focused on the story rather than exploring, things went pretty quickly. Did a side quest to rescue a dragon so I could upgrade my armour before meeting Ganon - the feels when a dragon comes into view, the change in audio cues, the sight of if it flowing past you, the draft.... it was so well done. Genuine tingles.

 

 

Gonna feel a bit empty for a while :(

The center is quite large itself and ideally, it should be as large as possible as all dialogue goes through the center for movies and games. L/R take care of the rest of the audio. Through the amp I have the center up a few notches up, volume wise, over the rest.

I found a barbarian tunic last night in a labyrinth by the southwestern mountains. Are full sets of these types of clothing available or is it just tunics? I have a couple of other tunis with various abilities.

There's full sets.

 

If you upgrade a set twice, there can be useful 'set bonus' when you wear it all.

 

I've found the barbarian, climbing and stealth sets to be the most useful.

Find one of the (3?4?) fairy fountains, and if you have the correct materials she will upgrade the armour you have. The materials can be anything, but as you’d expect the higher the upgrade (from lvl 2-4) the more rare the ingredients she needs.

 

Collect everything, always! Especially swift violets.

 

I think the main suits I switched through during the game was stealth/barbarian/climbing gear, with the Thunder Helm for when it gets stormy. And Goron/snowquill suits. And the desert ones. Also the diving one is handy. Love the Guardian one. Just collect everything.

 

As you get into the higher upgrades, you’ll be able to get decent buffs with one or two pieces of the set so you can mix in another for extra effect, eg one bit of climber gear is always useful with two bits of extreme hot/cold gear.

 

Or just wear what looks cool...

You'll have to find all 4 fairy fountains - and pay the crazy 10,000 rupee opening fee for the final one - to get the max upgrades.

 

Like with everything BOTW, experiment - I kept all the environmental armour, but my default setup were the amber earrings (easy to upgrade), Champion's Tunic (you can see enemy's health) and the Ancient Greaves for protection against Guardians.

Approach a fairy carefully, there might be something else you can get. ;)

I never leave home without the Korok mask. Still searching. That reward will be mine. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not this year or the next.

I never saw the point in the Champion’s tunic - when is knowing enemy health more useful than buffs?

I mainly kept whichever outfit I thought like the best outside the times where you have to change for environmental reasons.   I did like the fear you end up letting for winter weather - very Viking chic.

Is there any easy ish way to rupee farm? Everything is so expensive ! 

 

I just played Snowball bowling near Hebra Tower all the time. There's a trick that will guarantee you strikes 90% of the time (300 rupees each)

There's a few. Near the end not so much, but when I was short on arrows and good weapons, I always switched to the crappy ones when enemy HP was low. No point wasting another hit on the Giant Frostblade or whatever when you can finish them off with a club.

 

The biggest advantage is when you're exploring, it acts like a radar, making you aware of enemy presence behind a building.

 

It also offers the highest armour protection, equal to the soldier and ancient armour

At a ‘mere’ 105 hours in you must still have shit loads to do.

Erm. Just discovered this !

 

But I jumped off to blast some rocks and now he's gone! Can I find him again? Do I need to tame him each time. What's the deal?

 

Completely fallen back in love with this game and rediscovering areas I've been before. Just wonderful.

It's such a beautiful game. Being at the top of this peak and being able to see the entire area still left to explore. I remember one if the earlier e3 videos where Nintendo said that everywhere you can see on the map, you can travel to.  Was so hard to believe at the time.

Done.

 

Last fight:

 

I had a crack at Ganon before doing any of the divine beasts a good while ago.



I fought 4 bosses before falling down into the main fight and then losing.

I realise now after completing it, that the 4 forms I got where the divine beast bosses.

I didn't get any of them just now, straight to big boi Ganon, who got mullered.

So if you leave any divine beasts, you'll face their boss I'm the final fight.

 

255hrs

653 Koroks

120 shrines

All sets maxxed.

 

I can finally move onto Gris and then Hollow Knight now.

Yes:

Spoiler

Dragon horn farming:

Spoiler

 

 

That guy puts the fire in a cave a bit too far away from the dragon spawn which makes hitting the dragon horn harder than it needs to be. I set up the campfire under a tree (so rain doesn't stop you from lighting it again) right next to the lakeside. Use a bow that shoots arrows straight for miles (swallow bow, falcon bow, phrenic bow, golden bow) and you'll get the horn almost every time. Sometimes the dragon comes out of the lake with it's belly facing you which means you can't see the horn, but just get a scale/claw/tooth instead, you'll still get a good amount of rupees.

Working on the thunderhelm challenge now.

 

I've seen these big dragons in a couple of locations but have not a Scooby Doo how to take them out. Are there 4?
