@Zeldafan79 ya, I was surprised I could max out my rupee wallet in just a few tries, lol. No more money problems for me!

I had to kill Koloktos with one heart left to get the shield... So I decided to stop there. Only to find out you don't get all the rewards, only the last one. Sigh, so the heart piece can wait.

The shield is enough for now.

Man this game rocks, I don’t get the vitriol surrounding it. Finished getting fun fun island and about to head to the tower in the plaza.

Ugh now I can't just use the camera stick normally, even in other games I'm reaching for the L button by default.

@Eel I've gotten super used to it after a while. It was awkward at first, but now it's second nature. Well see how I adjust on my next 3d game.

That tip about ghirahim blows my mind! I used to think tricking him was the way to go also. He's so much easier now! All this time i was fighting him wrong.

@ themagusx1

I usually quit fun fun island once i've got the heart piece.

I've gotten used to the L button for the camera thing. On the Wii, could you control the camera like this or was it just centering behind Link?

Eel

It just worked on its own, with L-targeting centering it behind you, like on the N64 games.

Here I'm not sure if the automatic camera was always like this, or of they stripped it down for this version since you can control it yourself, but trying to play without using the camera stick is kinda rough.

Awesome, glad it helped you 😀

I have a major gripe finally, the pumpkin shooting game s driving me mad I can barely get 400 points. I tried joycons and pro controller and found the aiming difficult. I think my joycon started having connections issues again as it was choppy sometimes. I am definitely going to have to check on Wii to see if I find this easier, not sure if I ever did it as I didn’t 100% any of my Wii play throughs.

Just beat it! After around 35-40 hours. I think I only played through once on the Wii, taking a looong break midway through, and I never revisited it. But after playing through again, it’s really gone up in my estimations, maybe one of my favourite 3D Zeldas.

I started off playing docked with motion controls, but visiting home this week so I played in handheld. Which was difficult to get to grips with first. But I persevered and it got to the point where it felt natural. Eventually it just clicked.

I like that it’s kind of linear, I never felt stuck enough to have to Google things which I’ve done in previous games. The dungeons feel a lot more manageable and self contained, it feels rewarding to figure things out for myself.

QUESTION THOUGH. So, I think I’ve done my version of 100-percenting things. I’ve got all the heart pieces, etc. BUT, I only have eighteen hearts? Twenty with the two heart medallions. Is that all of them? Is it not possible to have twenty without the medallions in your pouch?

Yeah, the medallions count towards the 20 total.

I just watched on YouTube to turn off motion controls completely, aim at the second fence post, let go of charged up A button as soon as the pumpkin moves from his torso. You hit it on the way up out of his hand consistently so the wild throws at high scores aren’t any more difficult.

@blaisedinsd

Yeah that really helped! You totally made that fight alot less irritating!

Here's a tip for you. In the pumpkin shooting game the first five or six throws the pumpkin will fall in roughly the same spot so just try to hit the first one thrown and keep your aim in the same place. Always use a fully charged shot and shoot just before the pumpkin gets to the center of the aiming reticle. Also keep an eye out for the flashing pumpkins They are worth double the points!

Oh and getting multiple hits in succession adds to your multiplier.

@Eel Ahh, thank you!

Four hours into first playthrough. That wooden shield is really pretty crappy. Where do I find some amber to upgade it?

Also, this Groose guy really is a doosh. There was no way he was going to get the statue from the bird in the ceremony. He thinks zelda likes him, but she totally doesn't. I really showed him!😃🙃🙃🤪

@WoomyNNYes in this game, you can’t just use the shield like in normal Zelda games, it’s more like breath of the wild in the sense that you need to do parries in order to use it effectively.

If you just use it to block normally, it’ll take damage and break, but if you parry attacks with it, then it’s effectively infinite.

For amber relics, they’re found about everywhere in the faron woods, just keep your eyes open for them.

@Themagusx1 i don't either. Mainly from the establishment reviewers. I've been loving this game. Every time Link gets that short cut scene descending into a REAL dungeon I get excited and remember why I love Zelda so much

I'm at the end of the desert/mine dungeon. I do really like it, but I'm not jumping on that wagon of moving SS up in my Zelda rankings yet lol I still love these little "ah-ha!" moments I'm getting from some of the motion/direction-based inputs.

Playing this game has also given me a new-found respect for how timeless WindWaker's art style truly proved to be.
