    Like you I went to the Zora area near the start of the game, but left as the enemies were generally too strong and didn't come back until Link was much stronger.

    The guy shooting the thunder arrows is definitely the most difficult class of enemy in the game, so it's not a surprise he will destroy you early on. The one thing that is always true in this game is that it will never require you to have certain equipment, you always have the tools at your disposal. However, the weaker you are, the fewer options you will have and it may be more difficult so if you feel like a certain task is too tough or requires too much extra effort, it's probably a good idea to try to come back later or find a creative/different solution.

    Oh ****. I didn't know that about the trees. Going to head back and see if I can snag some of them.

    I did find one fairy fountain. Going to start looking for the rest. Good to know there are four.

    And yeah.. those spider guardians absolutely roasted me lol. Happy to know they are beatable later on.

    Thank you. Going to try looking for the solider armor. My equipment is really weak.
    Thank you. Going to take NFS advice and try to snag some arrows out of the trees. If I still get smoked I will come back later on and give it a shot.

    Stumbled upon Zora Domain questline. First divine guardian quest line for me to start. Hopefully it was a good one.

    There is no best order and the game is, overall, very easy so yes, it is a good one.

    The one thing I'll say about the order: what you get for completing the Rito quest (north east corner of the map) is by far the most useful skills in the game. I did that was one last and was livid when I saw the reward you get :laugh:

    I will concur.

    I don’t want to give away spoilers. But the Rito Divine Beast is the easiest of the four, AND it rewards you with the most useful ability for the rest of the game.

    If I were starting the game over, I would do that one first.

    I did the Rito one first just purely be coincidence and yeah, its a very useful reward.

    That said, I am well into my Master mode play through and don't feel too compelled to go get it. I cant think of many instances where it is absolutely crucial to anything.

    I just finished the Goron temple, my first Master mode dungeon.

    I started stumbling over to North East corner last night. I got up the mountain, I found a castle, I think I am heading towards Akkali? Is this the right direction to find the Rito quest?

    Oh ya, not exactly the opposite. but Rito is more centre west than north west IMO.

    Did anyone get to that island where you have to get the balls put on the platforms and youre naked the entire time? I stopped there because I kept failing and havent played the game in a couple of weeks due to business. I am scared to jump back in. :laugh:

    Eventide Island. Took me a few tries to complete it my first time out.

    you can cheese it just drop all your gear on the raft moments before you reach the island.

    it will be there when the island puts you naked.

    That being said, i wouldnt suggest doing that. I thought the island was one of the coolest parts of the game especially since it puts you naked.

    Can anyone answer if/how much the DLC would affect my original play-through? I've read mixed reviews on it, so I was going to wait until finishing BOTW to get the DLCs, but now I'm wondering if there are features/things I'm missing out out that would be better to have for the first playthrough?

    Second DLC only really comes into play after you get pretty damn far into the main game, so that's no big deal. First DLC has some random stuff tossed in and a great map mechanic, but I wouldn't say that anything in either directly impacts your play other than the initial burst of new quests that you get upon downloading the DLC. That being said, getting the Korok mask from the first DLC is a pretty big boost to finding those seeds. I don't think it'd hurt at all to get both if you're interested.

    I got a lot of time playing Zelda on my latest vacation... think I logged a good 6-8 hours.

    I FINALLY found Rito Village and was able to beat the Divine Beast questline. I see what you guys are saying about the reward. Seems like it will be very helpful.

    After that I shot over to Zora's Domain, finished that one.

    Are the Divine Beasts the new temples? Last Zelda I played was N64 and I thought the temples were far more in depth, however, I played it what 15 years ago. Thought the Divine Beasts were pretty easy as well.

    Not sure when I will pick it up again because it is pretty hectic but those two quest lines were definitely fun.

    Yeah, the divine beasts are the new temples, along with the 120 shrines and kinda/sorta the three labyrinths.

    Had to take a break due to busyness and got back in it last night. I feel like my stealth gear is all of a sudden worthless? I get spotted all the time now.

    Speaking of, is there a best gear? I go with knight and stealth gear, and climbing gear for climbing (duh). I have no idea how far I am in the game, but so far Ive done 1 beast quest, and have just wandered around doing random side quests and shrines. I am thinking I need to head to the beast cities to unlock some cooler stuff? I have also only done the first fairy fountain thus far.

    BotW is a surprisingly good dad game so far. Nice and relaxing to wander around Hyrule with an eye occasionally going over to the baby monitor and easy to pause anywhere. Whole lot of games out there I couldn't say that for.

    It absolutely is. Only game I have managed to play since my son was born. Took a small break due to work being crazy. About to finish the third Divine Beast. Got the Master Sword finally.
