I still have to finish my Master Mode run but for that I want to power up my Master Sword first.
But Trials Master Mode is some crazy stuff.

Decided to start a new file, it's not like I was really far though (only maybe 2 or 3 area mapped with the towers) another game tend to get between me and zelda and huh I have a tendency to forget BoTW.

Not this time!

Left the plateau and headed to Kakariko Village! I think I'll just get the last rune and than wander from there. Beat the talus stone monster as well for some easy money because I want the Sheikah outfit. (Link looks too good in it okay >.>)

I got my Sheikah outfit and I side tracked quite a bit but remain in the constraint of the part of the world where Kakariko Village, I have yet to wander beyond that. In the past, the further I uncovered was the Plateau, the kakariko village part of the world and hateno village. So far i've seen quite a few koroks and enemy camp and when I look at what's left to discover it blows my mind.

Returned to the game today, playing since launch and still haven’t complete it, but today I went out exploring and couldn’t believe that I found a new shrine. Just when you think you’ve looked everywhere!

I learned today that, apparently, the encounter rate for the Yiga Clan increases based on the number of mighty bananas you have in your inventory.

Is there any way to force the game to drop the green outfits when I use the amiibos? I tried them a few times but for now, the best thing I got was Epona but I really want a complete set of one of the green costumes

Not that I know of. They are the rarest things so you just have to keep trying. Also, you can get dupes.

The game has finally clicked with me after 3 separate times I've tried and quickly dropped, ah it's great. Really enjoyed all the shrines I've done so far (except 1 that was motion controlling platforms, couldn't control it at all and just walked up a couple of wonky ass platforms) and the freedom to just do stuff in any order really is extremely refreshing, compared to most open worlds.
I'm especially surprised it finally clicked as I hate weapon durability more than most game mechanics and thought it never would due to it, but I'm getting through it, though still definitely hate how fast weapons break, doubt any game (that's not horror anyway) will make me ok with weapon durability being there.

Has anyone else seen Bokoblins riding BEARS? I have hundreds of hours in the game, been everywhere collecting Koroks, and just saw this the other day. I love that I still find new stuff.

How do I put a saddle on my horse? Got a new one from a time trial race and have no clue how to put it on my horse.

You have to go to a stable that has customization options. Not all of them have it. I think Highland is one that does. There will be a person standing near the horse stalls who can change the look of your horse and change gear for it.

I'm addicted to finding Shrines. Got 80 so far, only done 1 of those Beasts in comparison, because every time I enter a new area I'm just hunting for Shrines, which leads me to another area and so on. Zelda is well fucked.

I feel like I did the best Beast first, because outside of the Zora one they feel super rushed with nearly no build up, the Rito one being the worst for this, kinda leaving me underwhelmed after really enjoying Shrine hunting for the 90% of the time and the Zora beast. Anyway back to finishing up the Shrines and then on to Hyrule.

You ever just kind of load up your 200-hour BotW savegame, ride around aimlessly for an hour, and think about how it's the best game ever made?
If I did the first bit of DLC, and now I'm into the second (I think something to do with the Champions?) after doing the one-hit-kill shrines, what is there after that? I think I need to do some more of the actual game too.

Late, but I'm pretty sure you can scum save with the amiibos. That's what I did. It can still get tiring to continuously reload though.

I kinda forgot how to do advanced combat after learning in the Temple on the hill of the first village.
It's the temple where you learn to do the dodges and strikes, right in front of the Faerie pond where the Faerie can buff your armors.

Is there anyway to re-learn them? Put the game down for a few weeks and now I can't remember any of the lessons.
I thought I could just go back in the temple and practice again. . . 😭

I am now convinced that The Great Plateau is actually another Hyrule lifted from that world and transported to this version of Hyrule in order to save it in some way.

The locations match up very close to the Ocarina map - Castle Town (only the fountain is left), Temple of Time, gate to castle, and the castle (Eastern Abbey).
Do the other landmarks that we have confirmed to exist in the past show up in a relatively similar fashion (Lon Lon, Earth Spring, Skyloft Temple) with respect to map placement?

Lon Lon is in Hyrule Field - look on the map for the Ranch Ruins. It matches up. The Forgotten Temple was probably part of Skyloft. It has the Loftwing sculptures and the large goddess statue. All the springs in BotW look almost identical to their Skyward Sword counterparts.
