Definitely the worst shrines in the game. If you want an easy way past them turn the controller completely upside down - you can roll the ball over the bottom of the maze so there are no walls

Nah, the golf/target practice shrines where you use stasis and then have to try and hit an object at a target are by far the worst. The game gives you so little control over the aiming and power of your shot and you end up just wrecking equipment. :x

I didn't find them too bad as long as you're happy to not get the chest from the bonus challenge

I was never happy with that.

These are definitely the worst offenders in my opinion, I got round it by just loading a save if I broke too many weapons.

I found those to be the worst. I just couldn't get the bonus chest in one, and after breaking loads of weapons I just gave up.

Use [5] weapons to get [1] weapon as a reward

I still say that the risk/reward gameplay model in this is its worst aspect, along with one or two other fails like the early trivialising of exploration and survival.

It quickly lost the ability to incentivise me as a player to overcome the challenges it presented. Although as I've said on here before I don't really know what the right answer is - certainly there are general balancing improvements that could be made, and more unique or valuable drops/rewards for doing things would help - but the entire game is based around almost everything being disposable so it's hard to marry anything with that concept!

I found discovering how the systems worked and interacted to be incentivising and rewarding enough. Trying something because it's fun is pretty much as pure videogame as you can get

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. A moblin camp sucks time and resources out of the player, a treasure chest returns it

I've never seen one before, no one has, but I'm guessing it's a genuinely useful reward from a chest in BOTW.

I dont think many of the camps take that much resource.

Pretty much every one I came to you could destroy with bombs and a well placed arrow or two.

It costs time but I always came out with more resources than when I went it.

Got the Master Sword 8-)

Going to have a go at the bird beast boss next. Did all the puzzles very easy.
