Nice. I'll check it out soon enough. Thanks a lot.
i was trying to do Eventide last night, and managed to completely clear it, except the Hinox's orb got lost somewhere before i killed it and wouldn't come back no matter what i did.
now im trying to convince myself to cheese it with amiibo since i already did it legitimately so it's not actually cheating, it's fixing a bug.
So not only did I take care of that shrine you guys mentioned (I just swam to it and didn't bother with the camp, though I had planned to take it out) I found another one in Eldin just by using the mine cart system (boy is that fun).
Unfortunately, it requires lighting blue flames, and the last part is brutal (You have to light torches that get continuously doused in water due to moving plat forms).
....I eventually got myself stuck on it and gave up....after falling in lava and not being able to get back up.
I'll try it again tomorrow. Anyway, 112 down, soon to be 113.
Use arrows. Arrows bathed in blue flame light up blue
I've been doing that, (though I wish I could have just used the torch, but I didn't have enough room in my inventory, though I worked around it by using a wooden weapon....only it was my Kokiri Spear, of which I only have one, and thank god I didn't use it).
Anyway, my timing is just off on the last part. It'll take a while (and maybe a lot of arrows) but I'll get it. It would just be easier if I could use normal fire.
I don't think the spear would've worked anyway.
They just get regular fire.
It did for the part I was doing. I just lit it with blue flame and ran up (though only for one spot).
Man, I'm gonna have to use that spear eventually. And then it's gone. Good thing I already took a picture of it.
The Forest Dweller spear respawns leaning against a root of the Great Deku Tree. So you can always get another.
All wooden weapons can carry the blue flame. I've used moblin and boko weapons.
For the blue flame shrine, it is possible to light multiple torches at once if they're close enough together and you use a certain classic attack technique.
I've never thought that last set of torches could be done other than with the attack implied , but I suppose that given other shrines where there's usually several ways to solve the puzzle it shouldn't be surprising that there might be another way.
What attack technique are we talking about here?
@HandsomeRob The Spin Attack - when you absolutely, positively must clear your personal space.
Shit. I need to get the torch for that, and I don't have any room in my inventory.
Eh. I'll think of something.
It's been a while since I booted up my save, but I know for a fact that I always keep a torch in my inventory. Specifically, the one I have has a Critical Hit modifier, so I mostly keep it around for the novelty of having it.
i just use a flameblade, generally, but i know where to get a torch if i really need one; both ancient tech labs have one inside.
I would do the same (or arrows) but in this case, you have to light the torches with the blue flame.
You can also find torches near the cooking pots at stables, and IIRC every puzzle that depends on lighting lamps (Van Rudania as well as the lamp-based shrines) will have a torch nearby in case you don't have one in your inventory.
Finding space in your inventory for the torch is another matter entirely.
3 Shrines left to go.
Man, that's crazy. To be fair, I kinda cheated for a few and deliberately checked a guide but still. A lot of them were found on my own.
With only three to go before I get the Tunic of the Wild, I'm thinking of doing some Star piece grinding, which means my cowardly ass will finally need to start travelling at night (which I still hate, especially when it rains).
I'll check some guides online, load up on them (I got about three right now) and then I'll be all ready to upgrade the tunic as soon as I get it.
You Are Almost There.
The triumph is near.
Though there's still so much I haven't done yet.
Edit: Plus, I still can't fight Flying Guardians to save my life.

Never seen a point to fighting those...
Ancient arrows or Stealth
I did try using Ancient arrows on them recently, but kept missing.
Then again, I wasn't using an Ancient Bow, so that may be my fault.
Need that range, mang.
It's really good.
The only thing the Ancient Bow really brings to the table is improved accuracy at distance, since it doesn't really arc like other bows. Make the hit with an Ancient Arrow, even using just a Boko Bow (4pts), and they're just as dead.
The easiest way to smack down Skywatchers if you're not perfect with bows is to get the high ground and glide towards the Skywatcher, and when you're close trigger Arrow Time to hit them square in the laser lens with an Ancient Arrow for a one-hit kill. (Alternately, if you have a Lynel bow, three AAs hitting anywhere will kill any of the Guardians, without needing to be quite as accurate with a bow.)
You can, if you're bored, pop each of the rotors from somewhere that you can duck away from the reflex shot each hit causes, and make it crash then walk up opposite the laser head and just wail away at it, but it's somewhat tricky to hit the rotor hubs (especially for those not good at arrow sniping), and the extra durability hit on your weapons (both bow and melee) isn't really justified by the few extra Ancient parts you get in the process (similar to chopping off Guardian Stalker legs) compared to the debris from the single arrow hit mentioned above.
Another "if you're bored" option is to get the Skywatcher's attention than parry the laser blasts with a Perfect Guard. However, the bounced beam hits the center of the model, not the laser lens like when you parry Stalker lasers, so it takes six hits to make a Skywatcher kill itself, vice three for a Stalker.

Yeah. Sounds like I should get more ancient Arrows in the long run.
I am kinda low.
I do prefer getting up close for the normal guardians in order to gather extra parts (though I'm actually maxed out on screws it turns out).
I guess I should get more arrows and then use them for ancient ones.
Just like with dakka, you can never really have too many Ancient Arrows. Besides the obvious use against Guardians, they'll one-shot any non-miniboss monsters no matter where you hit them, though using them means you don't get any loot.
In some cases, though, even the lack of loot from killing non-Guardians with an AA isn't a detriment. Apparently if there's too much loot lying around the stuff that's been out longer disappears when something new drops, which can be kind of annoying if you wanted that stuff that vanishes but were too busy with combat to grab them right away. (In particular, engaging a Guardian with leg-chopping in central Hyrule when some Stal creatures pop up comes to mind, from personal experience.)
