You don't even need the durians in normal mode. I got by with just apples :lol:

After my fauxmiibo farming I have a stash full of 5 meat skewers that I use when I need a quick pick me up.

I rarely used any of the status effect meals, but that was me just doing it wrong and making life harder than it needs to be. 8-}

I've just now started using status effect as I want to always wear a certain armor set that gives a different status effect!! Like climbing or stealth in hot or cold regions!

Good call, I didn't even think of that. One day I'll learn to game.

I never thought of it before either!! Just running around farming and finding the Koroks wanting to have two effects running, it was the best way!

It’s funny that you guys mention the status effects. Cause I also bad at game :lol:

I didn’t use anything until very late in my MM playthrough. I dunno why, but I kinda saw it as cheating? If you’re cold, wear your cold gear. If you’re about to be struck by lightning, wear your rubber suit. And the defense/attack buffs are the things that make me feel cheater’ish. I started to get over that when tackling Trial of the Sword, and much later on while monster hunting. In the end I exclusively wore the Fierce Deity for the attack boost, and even ate warming food so I could keep it on while hunting Lynels in cold climates. Cause damn… them gold enemies in MM… the FD really takes the edge off 8-)

Also for reference, FD is the exact same thing as the Barbarian outfit. I don't think I ever used it because I was so hung up on "MOAR DEFENS MEANS BETTAR" for most of my playthrough. That, and it's one of the few outfits I don't like the look of 8-}

Wanna hear cray? I suit up in the champions tunic, soldiers pants and amber earrings for defense. When I mount a lynel, I pause switch to the barb gear and wail on him. Sometimes I'll even switch to a two handed weapon. When I get bucked off I pause and change all my gear again.

I need 4 more lynel guts to finish my upgrades. I need to get gud at parry and dodge to get them free throws in. Maybe when I'm done with that I'll upgrade that deity set.

You know what's crazy? Perfect Parry and Flurry Rush are my best friends. It's the only thing I'm good at in the game. And shooting arrows while free-falling. So basically, I'm good when the game is in slow motion LOL

Hahahaha, the game seems to be really good when I'm in slow motion, which is most of the time.

I need to just suck it up and go practice. Unfortunately normal mode doesn't really require you get good at those things.

I do love slow-mo arrow shooting ;)^

I've considered doing that, but I was too lazy :lol:

Last time I checked, I had about 70-80 Lynel guts to spare 8-}

I honestly found the parry to be kinda pointless. All it does is open them up to couple regular attacks, and if I'ma use my timing skills then flurry rush is more useful. Now I know what you'll say, returning Guardian lasers. But in MM they have random timing, making it literally impossible to use it as a reliable tactic.

I'd use it at every opportunity. Leaping off a horse/Master Cycle and going into slow-mo bow mode (SLOBOMO?) is a great tactic. But I really wish that slobomo didn't require you to be airborn. Lotsa games do a "focus" type thing whenever you want. Just another thing for you to improve upon Zelda team ;)^

Just make it a Sheikah Slate skill. I wish BotW had a magic meter instead of all the skills having uses/cooldowns. Just like weapon/shield durability, it's more of a nuisance than game mechanic. Neither adds nor subtracts, so why bother?

I'd been happy with durability if they had added two things, a trackable number and repair.

I was taken aback when I started BOTW, seeing the Sheikah slate replacing many key items and the magic meter. But it doesn't take long to get used to, and I now feel it's was a really innovative idea. I still miss the Hookshot, and feel that Cryonis was painfully underused, but everything else about it was great. I hope they expand upon it.

Speaking of expanding, I know they don't do direct sequels often but I would love to see one for BOTW. It ends with a "now what?"... and damn.. I wanna know what's next for them! :lol: Does Link even return the sword after Ganon is gone?

I also missed all the tools and was bummed when I found how useless and annoying the boomerang was. I did use them to pop a lot of balloons though when I was low on arrows.

I agree on cryosis. Opened a gate once or twice, turned over a few dead guardians for bonus loot, used them to bounce a few rocks across for seeds and traveled a few lakes with them.

Did you ever use magnesis with a two-handed weapon to turn rafts into motor boats?

:lol:

I'd like to see a sequel or a stand alone expansion. I just want more new areas!

I hear ya. Song of the Storms is what clued me into this mix. Going pick up the album and I'm sure it's going on repeat at work.

I'm pretty far down a chillwave rabbit hole at the moment, bouncing between this Zelda, other stuff that I'm finding on youtube and google play. I need two sound cards and four ears. I guess I could use my phone and computer at the same time, I may have a problem.
