Oh yeah, they can be a fun challenge to take on, certainly more interesting than some enemies like the "Test of Strength" guardian fights ( :dread: )

I wasn't actively avoiding them when I did the castle, I just climbed my way up and missed them. I only realised there was way more to the castle when I went back to it later! :lol:

I plan to find a non fight route to the get brought it, by the looks there are lots of waterfalls I should be able to swim up to short cut up to the top.

I only found you got forced/cornered into battles if you went inside, outside there’s loads of guardians (and one Lynel but I won’t spoil just where!) but for the most part you can run by most enemies.

The castle is so damn cool, there are so many ways of approaching it :wub:

You definitely want to explore the place though, plenty of secrets to find

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

What...I've been there twice and the only Lynels I've seen are in a few towers.

Forgot I have the DLC for this so I need to get on and do that.

It seems no matter how long I play this I'm still really underpowered. How do you get hold of the better stuff?

Have you found many Great Fairies? Upgrading your armour makes a big difference

I think I found one or two. Will take your advice about upgrading armour when I work out how. :)

Upgrades are handy, although I’m not sure how much difference it has made.

I’ve found decent enough armour as I’ve gone so is mostly ok, shields however I only have 2 which is a bit gooseberry fool, I burn through them with guardians...

I do have the master sword now so that’s nice and I always have a few fairies in my bag just in case.

Upgrading at the fairies to get stronger gear is key, plus you can stock up on fairies whilst you're there to revive you on death as well.

Ace. What did you think all in all?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

The main game is very good fun, lots of variety and I enjoyed exploring. Loved that you could find your own to stuff and not follow their path even up the castle with the waterfalls. The final battle was easier than all the other bosses and the after credits was slightly deflating but all in all very good.

Deffo keeping it to replay at some point and maybe be more aggressive, this play I was very passive and avoid conflict where I could.

Ended up doing beasts in order elephant, gecko, bird, camel and it seemed like a good route to take.

I've been posting in the Switch thread about playing through this. It's been a blast so far, I don't know why I slept on it for so long. I've still only done the elephant so far. The opening boss fight with it was strawberry floating incredible. Really enjoyed that.

I've just been wandering around the map a lot. I've got to a few towers, but there's a few I haven't been to claim (the one with the electric strawberry floaters all around it :dread: :dread: :dread: )

If this keeps up the goodness, I will need to reassess my top 5 zelda games.

This is the most common order I believe, I did the same and yes it makes sense if you follow the game's prompting

I'm not sure I was prompted that way.

Once I had done elephant I actually went to the camel town and did everything except go get the thunder helm as I get destroyed by some lank monsters of the way.

I ended up in that order mainly as I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to get strawberry floated by those monsters the 2nd time round.

Didn't get all the memories in the end but I'm not too fussed by that I was using that Zelda Maps website for their locations anyways as sod working out silly riddles and aimlessly wandering.
