The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Snap!, I just completed it as well. I played it on release and got distracted by other games, as it is a big time investment, so I decided to restart it again a month or so ago.

 

I did most of he shrines, but never went out my way to find all the seeds, cos, well, I have other games to play. I obviously did all the divine beasts, and most, but not all the quests, skipped some of the side quests, but might go back to the game again to mop some missed items. 

 

I think the stand out things for me was the way you can approach combat and some puzzles in different ways, which elevated the experience. There was a great atmosphere to the game early on, very lonely.

 

I do not think I hold the game in such high esteem as some here, but it was a good experience. I still hated the whole weapon breaking thing early on as it got annoying. Also some of the one hit kills. 

 

Onto Age of Calamity now.

I did all 120 shrines, 4 divine beasts, 12 memories but less than 100 korok seeds.

 

But shrines aside, I didn't really focus on anything other than enjoying the world and its inhabitants. I did a lot of aimless wandering which turned into awesome moments of discovery.

 

Just a wonderful video game. I'll definitely get Age of Calamity but I've got some other Switch games to play now so I'll have a break from Hyrule.

My aim is to do all 120 shrines before I head to the castle - no doubt I'll struggle to find the last few.

 

This has been my aim too. I'm on about 70 or so at the moment with one divine best left to go. As new shrines get harder to come by, I think, dare I say it, that I'm starting to get a little bit bored. An hour or two of wandering aimlessly (which I had been loving) can result in no tangible progress. Any tips for finding shrines at a satisfying rate when there aren't so many left?

I guess use Hero’s path to see area’s you’ve not visited ?

Thanks. That’s DLC-only, right? Probably worth it at this point. I’m sure there are places I haven’t explored properly in my wandering, but I can’t remember where I’ve been in sufficient detail to know where they are.

You’ll be amazed at what you’ve missed... make sure you get all the armour sets as well, some of them are hidden in really cool places

Look for a shrine map online ;)

I missed loads on my first playthrough, on the second one I used a map to find the last 3 or 4, as it was getting to me.

I did try to make a 3 run at the game, but so far I've started it several times, and there just isn't any urgency to it, think I burnt out on it and BotW 2 can't happen soon enough tbh, I want more of the same, but newer :)

This is my 4th time to start this, I never could get into it before but this time it seems to be clicking with me. However...

 

Please help me, I've looked online for the answer and it was no help. I need raw meat for that old man, I know I'm to find a boar or a bird and shoot them, thing is, there aren't any. I've spent the last 3 days sneaking around the forest like a fucking clown and nothing ever appears. What am I doing wrong. I'm about to give up on this game again.

The quest isn't essential (almost nothing in the game is). There are a few other ways to get through the cold area. Pretty much anything you cook with peppers will do it.

I spent a while doing that too, as others have said there are other options. Once you you're more familiar with the world you discover all the different ways you can get round a problem some of the ones you think of will be bloody stupid...but will create some of the best moments of the game which will be wholly unique to you!

 

Stick with it! It's *such* a wonderful game.

Just started the game again with my young kids. You definitely don’t need the warm doublet. 

 

There are 6 spicy peppers by the arched entrance to cold area beside the river. There’s also a small camp nearby with a cooking pot. Cooking 3 peppers together will give you 7m30s of cold resistance, which should be enough time to cross the snowy terrain from the other elevated shrine. The other route is longer/tougher because there is combat along the way and you have to use magnesis to cross the icy water before climbing the mountain. There are mobs of monsters along the grassy outskirts along the river, with a particularly tricky blue moblin at the treehouse. 
 

Still loving this game after all these years. I revisited the castle area for the first time in ages recently and accidentally triggered the battle with Ganon but I still don’t want to ‘finish’ it.  Have continued to explore, currently in Gerudo desert. My hero’s path has maxed out though, so my current movements are overwriting my earliest adventures.

The first of my three daughters has now completed all four shrines on the great plateau and was given the paraglider by the king. It was good to rewatch the cutscenes and hear the backstory which I haven’t seen for about 4 years now! I also noticed that the blood moon cutscene is longer the first time.
 

Anyway, off she jumped out into the real adventure and almost immediately she was exploring places I’d either forgotten or not visited. So now I’m mirroring her movements on my own profile and finding more korok seeds, treasure chests and cool unexplored areas such as the ruined colosseum.

That’s funny, I didn’t find the Colosseum either until way after I’d ‘completed’ the game, when I was using the tracker to cover unexplored bits.

I think by default you jump down from the great plateau and then head out into the wild, rather than hanging around the base of the walls and exploring. My daughter was certainly intending to go straight to the village the king mentions (she wasn’t actually heading that way, but I didn’t tell her).

I take it I can complete the Champion’s Ballad business post-Ganon if I choose? Doing my first Switch run after completing it on the Wii U at launch and picked up the DLC, but it’s kicking my arse a bit and I’d like to save it to come back to rather than keep throwing myself on it.

Earlier in the year I finally went ahead and defeated Ganon after putting it off for ages despite having found all the shrines and completed all the DLC. I enjoyed just wandering around, enjoying the views from high up, hoovering up Korok seeds and chests. Then shortly after I restarted on Master Mode and got right back into it again, loving the increased use of tactics and stealth, and having fun revisting places I'd completely forgotten about.

 

But now my youngest has gone and lost the cart :angry:

 

Wondering if I can justify buying it digitally, so if the cart turns up I can flog it. I presume my saves would still work OK?
