Defeated Queen Gibdo. Bitch hits like a fucking truck. Died twice before finally pwning her, but I had to heal at literally every hit because she took off so many fucking hearts, especially with that charge attack! But now there’s just the Fire Temple left.
Had to stop just before going into the Gerudo Highlands Depths, but I did spot three Lightroots in the area so that’s gonna be a fun hunt. Just hope I don’t find any more Gloom Hands (Gloom Spawn?) ‘cuz one in the Korok Forest area came outta fucking nowhere and made me have to warp away and start the travel from scratch. And no, I don’t mean the one in the Deku Tree.
Honestly, I just wish I had better weapons. I’m too used to playing BotW and expecting to find high-tier weapons eventually if I go to the right places, but it seems the bulk of them have been removed to encourage using Fuse to boost attack power.
But there’s the rub: WHERE ARE THE STRONG WEAPONS THAT WOULD MAKE EVEN STRONGER ONES WITH FUSE‽‽
I’ve been coasting on weapons with like 9 or 12 attack if I don’t find Fused weapons with closer to 20, but the latter are too fucking rare for me to rely on this. Hell, part of what made Queen Gibdo such a pain in the ass, besides spamming those fucking tornadoes, is that my weapons did jack shit to her, even when I was able to stun her. I had to get real fucking lucky with the timing of Riju’s cooldown on her lightning to make any headway, and it was pure dumb luck I defeated the bitch.
And because of bullshit pricing, I couldn’t get the Flamebreaker Helm to test my hypothesis that you can climb on Moragia’s base to get the higher ground if you have all three. Hell, if that didn’t work, I’d have upgraded them all to see if I get the Fireproof status like in BotW. Until, of course, I learned there’s a cheese hidden near where the battle begins, but this is for those who probably missed the damn thing like I did. I’m still hoping for input on this strat, but nobody’s responded.
