I think everything has a use other than being sold.

Diamonds maybe? I dont remember needing them for anything but they may be used for some crafting/upgrades that I just didnt come across or take notice of.

Any tips on the centaurs?

Trying to get more hearts at the minute. Going to take a while though.

They are used for recrafting unique weapons, and for upgrading the diamond circlet. Possibly more. I definitely wouldn't sell them considering their rarity.

You can trade luminous stones for diamonds, but you're actually better off selling the luminous stones.

Get in close so they don't use their bows. Backflip to avoid their 3 sword swings - the timing isn't too difficult because you just flip as soon as you land, and you should get a sword flurry at some point over the 3 flips.

If they run off then crouch to charge you, shoot them in the face with a bow. It'll stun them, and when stunned you can mount them from the back to attack.

Once you have stasis+ that is also very useful for freezing them.

Jesus, Grainger Games are really just as slow as their god-awful website at sending out games. Just had the dispatch email for this. Also nabbed the Expansion Pass off CDKeys.

Ready to work my way through it without cheating with Arrows and Rupee's.

It's split into three trials. First two should be no problem, final trial gets pretty challenging at the end, although I still did it first go. I've restarted the game on Master Mode and given how much tougher the Great Plateau has been I reckon Trials of the Sword will be crazy tough this time round.

Depends on a few things.

If you are already quite well levelled (in terms of Hearts and equipment slots) and you know the systems of the game well...then its not at all difficult.

This doesn't mean that you'll necessarily beat all the levels first time, but it does mean that once you learn them and are able to use the right equipment for the right circumstances then you won't have any problems beating it.

Just finished it on normal, had a few goes at each of the trials, but by the end I had loads of stuff left I wasn't using because I didn't need it.

^Reassuring - will have to have a go at this now. I'd just assumed it would be too hard for me!

Possibly going to gets switch in the next month or two, will be getting this and starting it again. Going to pay attention this time to what everyone is saying in the game as I'm a bit lost on the U after doing 2 beats I'm just sort of aimlessly wandering with not real aim.

So I just beat my fourth and final divine beast. I'm on 94 shrines completed. Do I go for the other shrines before I go after the big bad?

There's always an aim at the very core of the game, find the 4 divine beasts. Then it's all about the journey in who and what you find along the way. Wander, discover and don't force yourself to play in a particular way.

Which may explain my issue I have having to just discover I like ncp or 30 pointing me in the right direction.
The "go discover" type stuff always annoys me as it just makes thing take longer and I get dpbored feeling aimless.

I did the tower in the dessert place so that seems like the next sensible place to go but yeah I liked the Zora domain and volcano thing of "dude go that way"

It's probably quite tricky but nowhere near as hard as people reviewing it would have you believe.

It's solid. I think I've only made it to around stage 11 :lol:.

There's this one stage where you get rushed by three armoured Lizalfos and you're on a narrow pier so can't go anywhere. I get battered on that one every time :(.

That's the one I barely got through. Used all my munchies doing it so got destroyed with the farting bit of health during the next stage.

I think your meant to dive in the water when that stage starts and work your way around and up a ramp behind them to try and take out the one facing the pier.

That's the thing, the game does guide you when you reach the areas with beasts.

You go into an area, go to small town, get sent to bigger town where you learn about the beastie and in that same town you get the quest (after doing the chain) to go get inside the beastie.

Trust me, I've done 3 in the past week haha.
