Master Mode playthrough part 10 - Champion's Ballad high playthrough part 3
Started this during the peak of an edible session. Won't have time to do all the Lanayru stuff or clear out more of Necluda or Faron, especially if the last trial of the Champion's Ballad is gonna be its own big thing. I definitely wanna finish that tonight.
oh man I hope they revisit these undercover villain NPCs in the next game... imagine if there's a bunch of Zelda 2 "I am error" or Castlevania 2 style NPCs that just give you completely irrelevant nonsensical information, and they always turn out to be a bad guy... this is such a good system.
This is like, the most frustrating boss battle ever. It's impossible to avoid the ice blocks if you're too close to him, but you HAVE to get close to him to hit him. and the ice blocks also destroy your ice pillars that you need to get up to hit him most of the time. I looked up the cheese strat, and it's actually just like with Windblight. Use Revali's Gale to float up into the air, then shoot his eye while falling a few times to knock him down. Doing this a couple times with Urbosa's Fury is enough to beat him.
Ended this Master Mode high session with 252 koroks and 97 shrines. I'm pretty sure I can do the rest of the shrines and sidequests very quickly, it'll just be a matter of doing the stuff that I haven't yet gotten around to, and visiting wherever I haven't been yet.
