Has anyone done that weird cube maze structure/shrine in akkala? I love how alien it appears, like something out of a sci fi film. There's quite a few treasures to be found there too. Love the music, felt like a dungeon from an older zelda game.

I think it's just TWA. I've found just shy of 150 (rechecked) and am closing in on 150 hours played.


Maybe but people should be at more than 6 after 20 odd hours.

I'm at slightly over 100 after about 60 hours, they are literally all over the place, you just have to get into the mindset of where they might be and know what you are looking for. If you see anything out of place then its probably a Korok.

The labyrinth in the north? I just climbed to the top and ran over to the shrine. What sort of stuff was in it?

You just need to be a little more curious about what is around you. I just keep my eye out and investigate. You can actually see a few clues on the map for some of them.

Did you go down below the labyrinth after doing the shrine? I only ask because I almost missed that the hole that opened up lead to somewhere I hadn't been before.

Yea I did, nearly was going to ignore it but wanted to know why wind was coming up. Then down below it's like holy gooseberry fool!

Is it weird that I'm 15 hours into this (supposedly) but haven't encountered lightning once?

Same. I'm thinking "Why was I ever afraid of these guys?" as I'm shooting them in the eye and cutting off their legs (saving my ancient arrows for when I storm the castle).
Still haven't gotten the hang of reflecting their shots back at them. I mostly just get hit or my shield does (and is destroyed in the process).

Got into a fight with one earlier which was really annoying. I got hit once early on and by the time Link staggered to his feet I got shot again. This happened repeatedly until I managed to fall off a cliff and hide.

Zora trousers? I've got the other two bits, just not those.

That's the bit I'm getting good at.

Hint: You hit A as soon as you hear the "beep"

Couple that with chopping their legs off and slicing at them with the Master Sword, and they go down in a few hits.

That's good to know. But I imagine the timing required depends on what distance you are from them. Do you find you have to keep a specific distance from them for that tactic to be consistent?

Not that I've noticed. Perhaps it is an intentional cue, so it stays consistent to make it work.

Distance will matter.

One other thing that gets on my nerves in this. Links slow swimming. Can't the speed boost be more like sprinting? Rather then a little wiggle.

At least there's some items that speed up swimming.
