But I like how they wiggle going down.

... what?

To the main topic, my God, did I hate farming smotherwing butterflies. I can't think of anything that I farmed that was more onerous. I remember mostly focusing around Southern Mine during the day - no enemies around, they stood out against the rocks, and there were enough that spawned that I was bound to get several unless I really screwed up. I remember specifically warping in and out of the area to farm, go do other stuff to trigger respawns, then go back.

I always found it amusing how the frogs would continue twitching after you hit the water they were in with a shock arrow.

As for shooting insects, how about when one gets in the way of a tricky arrow shot? I've had that happen at least twice. Lined up for a ludicrously long shot, bow raised about half-way to the sky (not one of the "sniper" bows), and as soon as you let go "HAHAHA INTERCEPTED BITCH!". tongue

Regarding finding smotherwings, about the only thing that took longer to find was electric Lizalfos tails for the Gerudo Vai rubber outfit, and that's just because the desert is so big. Even using Sensor+ it took a while to get all those SWs.

Fortunately I took the advice about just buying some (though I still had to collect a lot).

Finally got it updated now, so that just leaves the remaining shrines, maybe some more Korok seed to fill my remaining Shield slots, and of course the final upgrades for my Sheikah and Climbing sets, as well as the Sand and Snow shoes.

110 Shrines down. 10 to go.

Phew, this will take a while. The best I can think of is searching any nook and cranny I haven't already been to, and that'll take a while.

I found that there were patches north of Gerudo Village that tended to have Electric Lizalfos spawns, so I typically popped over, took them out, then went elsewhere until a Blood Moon restocked them. Come to think of it, much of my late-game farming was popping between spots to farm a dozen different spots and returning when a Blood Moon happened. If nothing else, it did make it so that the individual farming felt less tedious.

@Rob:I found that Hebra has some easily missable shrines due to some of them being in caves.

Without looking them up, the ones I recall in Hebra off the top of my head:

  • that skeleton one,
  • one along the top edge of the N. Tabantha Snowfield, between the Hebra range and the mountain to the east (with the possibility of running into several Lynels depending on what path you take),
  • up in the far NW corner of the map,
  • in the Labyrinth to the east of that eastern mountain I mentioned above,
  • Biron Snowshelf (shrine quest from the Rito village, talking to one of the kids whose name escapes me at the moment, with pink plumage),
  • Pikida Stonegrove,
  • Near the Flight Range,
  • next to the shield surfing woman's cabin,
  • near the Snowfield Stable in S. Tabantha Snowfield,
  • and Kopeeki Drifts

I might have gotten most of those already in fact.

But I'll check your list with what I've already got.

it turns out blue Lynels die to multi-shot bomb arrows just about as easily as anything else does.

Huh.

I should have tried that. Anyway, I'm mostly fighting Silver Lynels now, so that's no good to me.

it should let you get in a good bit of damage anyway. use Revali's Gale or the updrafts from their fire breath to get airborne and unload into them. Stamina food optional if you want to be absolutely disgusting with it.

That's also one of the only things, besides Urbosa's Fury, that will reliably stun them for a moment so you can get more hits in, or even climb onto their backs. Once they throw you off you can shoot some more bombs if you're fast enough. Oh, and be sure to aim for the face.

The biggest chese strat for fighting Lynels is to charge them with a twohander and then spin to win. Their biggest weakness is that they always start a fight with a roar followed by a fire nova. This animation isn't interupted by them taking damage BUT slightly delayed. With the spin attack you hit them so often that they can be down 50% before they get it through. Releasing Urbosas Fury right before it allows you to finish the deal.

I see. So using spin attacks with big weapons is one of the best strategies (besides just shooting them in the face).

I did know that using Urbosa's Fury was a good way to start. I'll keep this fact in mind from now on. I always stopped and used Urbosa's Fury too fast, but now I know to squeeze out a little more damage while I can.

Edit: Also, I took care of upgrading my Climbing Set fully, and...

and Kopeeki Drifts

Got this Shrine, which is the only one I seemed to be missing of the list I got from earlier about Hebra. I believe that brings me up to 111, and one more before I get another heart.

Nearly done here. I could probably just beat the game by now if I wanted.

Best feeling after going on a murderous Lynel rampage from the Hebra snowplains with three, to the northern craters leading to the Death Mountain with another three lynels (six total) and a blood moon appears.... YAAAAASSSSS, LET'S DO IT ALL AGAIN!

there's another shrine, Lanno Kooh, near Kopeeki Drifts that's in a cave full of freezing water. you have to swim through the water to get to it so you have to be able to tank the damage from it, but that shouldn't be an issue for you.

I hate that one in the icy water. It's possible to get in without taking damage by riding a log down the river, or by carefully arranging Cryonis blocks and climbing.

Current obsessions: fountain pens and piano repair. Mention them at your peril.

It also helps to pop the monster camp downstream from the shrine before entering, as IIRC they can see you while you're floating down the river on the way out.

Mind you, "pop monster camps" is good advice in general. grin
