The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be hitting the one-year anniversary of it’s release date in less than two weeks and I feel like I’m still reading about new discoveries in the game everyday. And even so, there is still tons for players to discover all on their own.
FINALLY I finished all the quests in Gerudo and was able to borrow the thunder helm. For such a small area it’s pretty easy to get turned around with the help of stamps.
Anyway, I’ve discovered a pretty neat trick using the thunder helm. I’ve seen YouTube videos where you have Link hold a metal weapon during a thunderstorm and right before you are about to get shocked, you throw it into a group of enemies and it deals out some pretty good damage. However, timing your throw can be tricky and is all that’s standing between you and electrocution.
If you have the thunder helm, you can have the same effect. All you need to do is wear the helm and equip a metal weapon or shield. When you see the green sparks coming on Link, run into a group of enemies. The lightning will still come down but you won’t be affected by it. I haven’t tested this on more powerful enemies like Lynels but it’s really fun on a bunch of bokoblins.
I also found the Horse God today. Not really a mind blowing discovery, especially since the map is pretty explicit about where you can find this (the bridge you cross is literally called Horse God Bridge). What I was pretty surprised to see is that the Horse God, called Malanya, lives in a Great Fairy Fountain. Malanya can also bring your dead horses back to life. First one is free and then after that you’ll need to hand over an Endura carrot. But that’s a small price to pay compared to what the other great fairies ask to perform their services.
Try it out to bring an old friend back.
