I think Nintendo modelled this special edition guide of the size of the map. It's strawberry floating huge!


A copy arrived in the post yesterday. It looks lovely but I've decided to send it back. I was hoping the £60 price was a placeholder but it wasn't. Plus it's absolutely huge. Way bigger than all the other collectors edition guides I have.

I've gone for the standard hardback one instead.

Looks like that wasn't the only thing that got beaten.

I beat Ganon yesterday and now I'm devastated that it's over :cry:.

91 shrines down and plenty of other stuff still to do. I just hope I don't lose interest now that the main story is done.

Easily the best game I've ever played. Smashes Ocarina (the second best game I've ever played) out of the park for me, even when you put everything into context.

Best water banana split. Turns out having a shield up and spamming the gooseberry fool out of hit with attacks in part is a good move then being far from him in part two. Also i didn't realise zl helps with aiming!

Ended up taking him down in 3 minutes at most with only one stop to eat

:wub:

Just read something really cool in the guide.

Obviously all the Shrines/Koroks add to your completion rating, but one thing I didn't realise that does as well is discovering all the location names like Castle Town Prison and Shadow Hamlet Ruins. Sometimes there's nothing in these places but they're great in terms of world lore.

Which order did you guys do the Divine Beasts?

I've been wondering about this because I feel as though I did the easiest one last!

My order was:

Zora
Goron
Gerudo
Rito

The Rito beast was almost embarrassingly simple compared with the Gerudo beast, which was deviously difficult.

There is no doubt that my experience, upgrades, weapons etc will have had a huge impact on the difficulty level of each beast. In order of difficulty​ I would probably go:

Gerudo >>> Goron >> Zora >>>> Rito


Thoughts?

Edit - apologies if I'm covering old ground — I've been avoiding this thread up until now like the plague!

I have to say I was disappointed with the end fight with Ganon and everything. It just sort of happened, it was no way near as epic as Ocarina of Time or Skyward Sword.
I wasn't really impressed with any of the 'bosses' really, they weren't at all memorable.

I did it in the exact same order as you. I think that's the 'story' order, but yes I found the last one ridiculously easy. I was a bit miffed at the shortness because of the simplicity of it. I think it was because it was mostly on one level and was a simple tilt. Plus by that time I'd really got the hang of it.

I did it in that order to. I wouldn't call it a story order either. Maybe only Zora feels like the first because of it proximity to the start of the quest. Rito is the simplest but I wouldn't call any of them difficult. Bosses were pish.

I enjoyed it a lot, felt suitably epic.

Though having said that I was a little surprised there was no attempt to flesh out Ganon more or show Ganondorf or give him any motivation. I don't feel like the game needed it but when I compare the way motivation is explained and the character is given more room to actually be a character in the likes of OOT and TP, then I would have to say I definitely prefer that way of doing things than the way it was done in this.

The other bosses I absolutely loved, they looked so cool and the way they were tied back to the central enemy was good I thought. Having said that I'd always be up for more variation.

Regardingthe order OB, I think the last one you do is always going to be the easiest as you're probably quite overpowered by that point. I did Goron last and the whole thing took less than half an hour. If there is a 'correct' order, I believe it's Zora>Rito>Gerudo>Goron, I did that (except first 2 switched) and it felt like the best way. I didn't die once to any of the bosses in the game.

Not 100% sure where to go but there seems to be some big bastard in the side of the volcano so that seems as good a place as any to go :D
