Well, the easiest way to get a Blizzard Rod would be to kill a Blizzrobe (which instantly die to fire-based attacks). Now, it's been a bit sine I played this game, but I recall that a few can be found in the upper reaches of the Hebra Mountains to the far north-west of the map. I also want to say that the Crenel Hills to the north-east of Hyrule Castle has one of each of the stronger Wizzrobe types, too.
Following up on my previous post about the Blood Moon thing, that seems to have been a one-time issue. It took a bit because I was more focused on finding treasure chests than killing, but I finally killed enough monsters to trigger the BM, which happened in the normal way.
Good thing, too, because I was down to 10 regular arrows, waiting for the BM to reset the arrow vendors.

Alright. Took care of both the Snow Boots and Sand Boots quests (Eight Heroine and Forgotten Sword, the latter of which I knew to take a picture of early due to a guide).
Next up, gonna see about that sandstorm quest, along with a few others. Want to really clear out my plate before I hit the Yiga fortress. There are probably still a lot of areas I haven't fully explored too.
If you're going to Yiga fortress, make sure you have the complete Sheikah suit.
I do, though only upgraded up to three stars.
Should I get it up to four by finding the last Great Fairy?
If you play like most folks, the last fairy will be in the far southwest corner of the map.
So somewhere in the Gerudo Desert then?
But that sounds like it's around the area where The Divine Beast is. Does that mean I have to beat it first?
You might. But it's further west than all that. You might be able go go around.
I see. I took a look at a video of where it is.
I might try reaching it early. I also want to see about getting the rest of the Barbarian armour. So that means time to hunt me some Lynels.
Speaking from experience, it is possible to get to the last Great Fairy before beating Vah Naboris. But yes, you do have to maneuver around the Divine Beast, so it's a tad easier approaching from the north. Fortunately, you can see the Divine Beast in the sandstorm before it gets close enough to shock you, so just keep your eyes open. Also, if/when at all possible, make absolutely sure you can find some variety of landmark in view (there are a couple plateaux that work for this purpose). It can help to get to a couple of the calm spots (where you can call up your map) and then use your map to figure out where the next one you should hit is... but fair warning, some of those calm spots feature Moldugas, so be prepared for a few fights if you do try it.
Also, seriously, stock up on solid healing food before you go. For the most part, you won't have the pleasure of warping once you set out.
Honestly I'd just go ahead and conquer the divine beast. It's not terribly difficult and it clears up some shrine locations that makes navigation much easier.
Whereas I say, just go straight to the Great Fairy. From Gerudo Town, jump out of the window at the back of the throne room, and run straight until you find the giant skeleton.
Isn't it faster to ride a sand seal?
I will admit, Vah Naboris is on the easy side, and getting the desert Great Fairy is much easier once it's beaten. Trying to navigate in the sandstorm is very much a Self-Imposed Challenge. That said, I did it because I wanted to see if it were possible (and, in fact, I had only cleared Vah Rudoh at the time) - it seemed like enough of a challenge that I'd get a tiny amount of bragging rights, but not so much that I needed to have lots of experience in the game to pull off (like the "go right to Ganon" challenge that I bow to its victors).
So yeah, do it if you think it'll be fun for you.
Yes, I was giving the easiest directions I could. I donít even remember there being a sandstorm between the fairy and Gerudo Town.

Alright. I'll hold off on the great Fairy. My next order of business before braving the sandstorm is getting the rest of the Barbarian Armour. First off, grinding Lynel parts. I want to upgrade what I have as much as possible in one go so it's time to fight all those assholes....
So apparently all the dungeon themes include a Morse code SOS. Oof.
Not quite. It doesn't quite have the right divisions for the letters to be S.O.S., though it may possibly mean something in Japanese.
Alright. Completed Captured Memories. I was gonna wait until after I took care of the last Divine Beast, but then said fuck it and did it anyway...
...I thought you were supposed to get the Tunic of the Wild for doing it? I didn't get anything at all. Was I misinformed on that?
Well, anyway, now it's back to my previous plan: get the rest of the Barbarian set.
The Wild armour set is your reward for completing all of the shrine puzzles.
That's gonna take a while.
Yeah, the only armor associated with Captured Memories is the blue Champion's Tunic, and for that you only need to find one of the 12 memories.
And on an unrelated note, More than two years after release BotW is still the sixth best seller for the Switch. (From the general Switch thread.)

x5 That's for the audio in the right channel. The audio in the left is undoubtedly SOS. You don't even have to take my word for it. Pull up the song, plug in some headphones, and only put the left ear in. It happens around 15 seconds into the song.
Ah, my bad. I misread the article; it does indeed specifically mention that.
So just found my way to the Labyrinth in the Hebra region. Had to work my way around a Lynel to get there (didn't want to fight it in the snow, at least not until I have the best armour so I don't need to focus on defensive potions for fighting them.
