I beat the game but 100% for me is getting all shrines and doing all missions. Fuck the seeds.

the seeds annoy me. I cannot fathom how there are so many considering how much of the map I've scoured. I have to find more. I was considering a point by point trek through each section rather than the usual wandering followed by getting distracted.

Faron woods is a separate area. Do you use the shrine echo locator function on your map?

Eh, I never really figured out how it works.  I believe it'll start bleeping more if you're headed in the right direction?

Yeah, it starts off beeping if you are in the general area. Then beeps more when you are heading in the right direction. Then if you pass over it and it beeps less it means it was probably above or below you and you passed over it. You can also use it to locate any item you have photographed.

The Akkala ancient tech place will tell you more. Pictures you take are added to the Hyrule compendium and you use those images to find more of what you want.

Now that I've beaten Ganon I think I'm going to hold off from 100%-ing the game until I pick up the Switch and that version of the game.

You're going to replay the 100+ hours you've put into the game? I really hope Nintendo haven't deleted my Zelda save when I get my switch back.

Well it will take a lot less time knowing what I know now.

That's another thing I was going to ask. What do you (everyone here) know now that you wish you had known before starting the game. I think I've already said mine.

Hmm. I'm not sure there is really anything that I know now that I wished I had known before because it was all fun just learning those things in the first place.

But if you were to restart the game today for instance?

Well that's the same question so my answer remains the same.

I would wish that I'd forget everything should I restart the game.  Uncovering the map is the main attraction in this game, it'll be only half as fun on a second playthrough if you know where everything is and what every locale looks like.

Status report!

I've currently 'done' 3 of the 4 devine beasts, beaten 66 shrines, found little under 100 Koroks and unlocked the Master Sword, which I so far have only ever used to chop down trees to collect wood.  I still have to climb 2 or 3 towers in the top left corner of the map, which I started heading to yesterday.  Don't have a clue how much time I've spent in the game so far, but I'd estimate it to be about 50+ hours

If there's one thing I would have liked is more enemy types.  You basically have bokoblins, moblins and lizalfos, keese and chuchu's.  That's about it, save for the odd guardian.  That's not much to cover about 100 hours of play.

If you go to your switch profile it will tell you how long you have played.

Yeah a few more enemies would have been good and an ingame clock would have been an easy and convenient thing to have been implemented.

It's easier to check than checking your ingredients.

No. It would have been nice to have one there to show you how long you have been playing.

Oh I thought you meant an actual in game clock, which there is, which tells you the time in the gameworld. You can check the Wii U activity log and it will tell you how long you have played all of your games.

Yeah I know about the activity log but having a clock right there in the actual game is just so much more convenient and easier.
