Do you think the monks designed their respective shrines? Does that mean the ones with their faces covered are ashamed of what dicks they are?

Am I the only guy who dumped the ball, and then twisted the maze to let the new one drop into the exit channel?
I believe I did this as well. I was still terrible at getting that stupid ball to make the jump.

It reminded me of the ferret situation in New York City. Ferrets are illegal to own within the city, yet the pet shops there all seem to stock ferret food...



Also I'm gonna steal that for my user title, thanks.

I have saved Hyrule!

...again.


So, is this one of the few Links who actually gets to be with Zelda? 'Cause... I don't think Malon's an option.



Just a hunch.

Finished the game. Meh. I wonder if I would've not hated the story if it was just text and no voice acting.

Throwing a boomerang and then catching it mid-backflip makes you look like the baddest ass

I wish I knew I didn't have to kill the Hinox on Eventide Island before it killed me twice.

Urbosas Fury takes care of that problem as well. Very efficiently.

I ended up killing it by using Magnesis to hit it in the face with a box a lot, because I did it before I had Octo's solution.

I killed it with the swords I had thrown onto the island before starting the challenge.

That's amazing. How did you get them there without triggering the start?

I guess you could throw an ice block up off shore and throw to the beach from there.

You can also take a raft there and toss items just offshore then hop onto the beach wade out and grab them, apparently, according to this (very low quality but enough to get the idea) video:

I don't mind losing your gear for that island.

What I do mind is the fact that the orbs can be very easy to lose. If you, for example, Stasis-launch a barrel bomb into the camp on the plateau by Koholit Peak and the orb gets knocked off the plateau in the process?

Too bad. There's no path that you can take to walk the orb back up there. You boned that run, redo it.

If it's strong weapons you're after, there's a lot of treasure hidden around if you look for it, even before you fight anything. Off the top of my head, the eastern shore and the central bog both hide a metal chest with goodies.

If it's anti-Hinox tactics, again, you can either glide onto its belly, grab the orb, and run for it, you can beat it upside the head with one of the metal crates about, you can use fire on it which will light up its anklet, you can drop boulders from the campsite above, et cetera.

I found a spot where his AI got stuck on a rock and chucked bombs at him for a couple of minutes.

I want Breath of the Wild: Castaway DLC that is just a series of island puzzle scenarios where you start with no gear.

So far the best thing about the Tarrey Town quests is dude who's all "here's 100 rupees now go murder two guardians right over there chop chop"

I killed it by throwing my shitty soldier's sword to its feet while there was a lightning storm going on.

Default ask me about my Dila Maag/Tu Ka'loh slash fiction

OMAN AU: Thank you all for joining me, my brothers. Though it may be long beyond our lifetimes, the day will come when the hero of legend will awaken. Today we, the monks of the Sheikah Tribe, leave behind our great legacy to ensure that he is capable of bearing the sacred burden destiny has placed upon his shoulders. Now, tell me of the trials you have prepared for the hero.

MYAHM AGANA: Wait wait hold up

MYAHM AGANA: Shrines were due TODAY?

OMAN AU: Yes, esteemed Brother Myahm. It is as we agreed, one year ago this day. Surely you remember?

MYAHM AGANA: Wh... Oh yeah yeah yeah no, of course I totally remember. I just... It's just hard to believe the day's finally here, you know?! F-Finally!!!

OMAN AU: Your enthusiasm is truly inspiring, brother. By all means, be the first to share with us the fruits of your labors.

MYAHM AGANA: Oh... uh... well, I... H-Hey listen, Tu looks like he's about to burst, let's let him go first before he blows a gasket over there, hahaha

TU KA'LOH: ...? Very well. Over many months I have constructed a vast island labyrinth, and secreted my shrine away deep within its walls. Only through wit and perseverance will the hero be able to find the hidden path to that which he seeks. In this task I collaborated with my wise brothers Dila Maag and Qaza Tokki; each of us has designed a complex warren of twists and turns that will test the hero's skills to the utmost.

OMAN AU: Excellent work, my brothers. The true hero must be able to find his way through even the most devious of dungeons.

MYAHM AGANA: yeah no I guess that's pretty good yeah

CHAAS QETA: Hear this, brothers: I have shaped my shrine into a great arena, and set within it a powerful Guardian armed with fearsome weaponry. Victory over this foe will not come easily -- strength, reflexes and strategy will be needed in equal measure to overcome my ordeal.

OMAN AU: A splendid trial, Brother Chaas! Certainly, the hero's combat prowess must be honed to a razor's edge if he is to have any hope of repelling the darkness that plagues Hyrule.

MYAHM AGANA: oh wow he has to fight a guy? yeah I thought about doing something like that but yeah

OMAN AU: Keep us in suspense no longer, o Brother Myahm! Let us hear of your contribution to the Sheikah legacy.

MYAHM AGANA: shit

MYAHM AGANA: um

MYAHM AGANA: alright well

MYAHM AGANA: okay so you remember those toys we had as kids, where it was like this maze that had a little ball bearing in it, and you had to like tilt the maze around to get the ball through it and put it in the hole or whatever

OMAN AU: I... believe I may recall seeing such a device...

MYAHM AGANA: yeah it's like that

MYAHM AGANA: but... bigger

MYAHM AGANA: yeah

TU KA'LOH: Hold a moment. A maze? That sounds similar to--

MYAHM AGANA: NO, Tu, it's not similar, okay?! You didn't say anything about a ball or a hole in your pitch, did you? So mine's already way more complicated. In fact YOURS sounded a little familiar to me, now that I think about it! Didn't you say you copied off of Dila and Qaza, or something? I wouldn't be surprised if you took a peek at my notes too. Probably spent the whole year sleeping in and watching cat videos on your Slate

TU KA'LOH: I never--

OMAN AU: Brothers, please! Fighting amongst ourselves accomplishes nothing. Brother Myahm's shrine... may... have some merit?

MYAHM AGANA: It's got tons of merit. You know, I'm sorry if it's not as brilliant as Fight A Guy--

CHAAS QETA: Hey--

MYAHM AGANA: --but it's kind of a multi-part puzzle, if you just take a second and think about it. The hero's gonna see this ball, right? And he's going to be all like "what's up with this ball???" And then if he looks around a bit maybe he'll notice the hole, and he'll be like "WHOA there's a hole too?!" So that's already two things he has to worry about. If he's clever he'll realize that maybe the ball needs to go in the hole, but that's when the real test begins! See there's this CRAZY maze, and he has to--

OMAN AU: Peace, my brother. We have one hundred and twenty shrines. They need not all be winners.

MYAHM AGANA: god dammit
