I didn’t have that, so I looked it up. Apparently, Thunderblight can’t shock you if you have lv 3 shock resistance, even without the “unshockable” effect. No other enemy in this game has this property, making Thunderblight’s electricity actually a tier weaker than just a keese or lizalfos.

@Munchlax Thanks. That's an interesting find.

You've got a lot more options for getting level 3 shock resistance, including food and potions, so it's definitely worth a shot.

I hate this boss so much. I dont know who hurt the designer of this boss but why do I have to suffer because they did. I don’t understand how you can include a boss this hard and not include the option to either turn the difficulty down or see my failing on this dozens of times over and there not being an option to just skip the boss so you can progress. This one boss has just ripped out every ounce of like I had for this game. I went from being excited to play BOTW to resenting the icon on my Switch. One boss has ruined an entire game.

I clear stage one - the parry tip helped me keep my shields for longer. I clear stage 2 - this stage is just a complete mess, because it doesn’t consistently work on every attempt and the camera in BOTW is awful, but because of the lightning tonic meal thing it doesn’t matter, the game can’t screw me on this.

Then, OMG, I am down to a tiny sliver of health. I have one proper shield still left, I have burned all my food, all my fairies and my self res but surely this is it. I have done it, I can finally go back and enjoy this game again. I am sweating so profusely I can barely see or get a grip on the Switch. I am so close, I am pursing my lips. Tasting the sweet taste of being able to once again progress and enjoy this game again.

Then the dev turns around and says ***** YOU, NO JOY ALLOWED and slaps me right across the face. In one moment, all my hope, dreams and joy are shot into a void of utter woe as the boss suddenly unleashes a brand new attack, an instantly shield shattering laser beam. All my shields are gone, all my healing items are gone, I have nothing left and it knows it, finishing me off with one twirl of it’s weapon. It is over. Almost an hours worth of effort, just evaporated into thin air with nothing to show for it.

I know people like this stuff, but I thought this stuff was isolated to games like Dark Souls so I could keep a wide berth as I play games to have fun and in my world, this isn’t fun, this is torture. If I knew this game was a Dark Souls game I wouldn’t have bothered playing it but now I’ve invested like 30 hours into this game. I either cut my losses and just give up on the game, knowing all that time was wasted or I just keep turning the game on, failing to this boss, fighting the urge to dash my Switch at the wall and then just sit and feel miserable for the rest of the day.

I... don't remember Thunderblight being like that. Granted, I saved him for last, but while I remember him being somewhat more annoying, I don't remember being all that frustrated.

It kinda makes me want to continue my Master file just to get a refresher. Of course, everything hits harder there. But I never recall anything being Dark Souls- hard.

I googled it to see if it is just me and it isn’t just me. Someone said they gave up after trying to beat them for over four months. I am not quite there yet, lol.

@Pizzamorg Yep, if you get the blights to very low health they pull out the guardian laser attacks (which you can also parry) I always do Thunderblight last and at most it takes me 3 times, so maybe go for the master sword and the last divine beast?

I never really had this problem either. Thunderblight was challenging, but I saved him for either last, or second to last... as it was the one area I didn't really feel the urge to explore right away. Due to this, I had Mipha's healing grace, so if I died, I'd get revived for free. I also had fairies on my person.. a ton of fairies, and lightning resistant foods. Wasn't a cake walk, since I died multiple times and got game overs, but it wasn't as hard as this sounds.

Yeah, for me on my first file it was a bit surprising finding out just how much more competent thunderblight was compared to the other two blights I fought before it (and the one after), it killed me several times but it wasn’t like, too bad.

I also had a lot of food and stuff. So that helped.

I’m sure you just need to go have a virtual walk through hyrule, find equipment, get new foods, breathe the wild (😛), and then go fight him again all refreshed and more experienced.

I’ll probably just try and get up Death Mountain or whatever it is called and try and clear that Beast and then if I come back and still can’t beat Thunderblight, I guess I’ll just give up. It is just not fun having this hanging over my head, especially as I am probably the best geared I will ever be as I hoarded weapons, fairies and meals for that fight and now I’ll have to use up all of that stuff clearing a different Blight and I dunno if I can be bothered to horde it all over again as it is so tedious and time consuming to come back and true Thunder again.

Do I need to buy the full outfit in that death mountain place to have full immunity to the fire or do I just need to hoard tonics?

@Pizzamorg you only need one piece of that particular armor set to be able to survive the mountain. And you can actually get one for free if you do a certain side quest in one of the quarries.

Fireblight Ganon is a lot simpler, and easier to cheese. That entire divine beast mission is also relatively simple.

If you have problems though, I’d recommend getting the Master Sword, since that just cuts through malice like it’s paper.

Oh, cause I bought just the trousers as the whole set is extremely expensive but it didn’t protect me as I went into the mine or whatever for the quest line, I still set on fire and died so I thought I maybe needed the whole set.

Where do I go to start the quest for the Master Sword?

@Pizzamorg huh that’s weird. Do keep in mind that even with the armor you are not immune to fire or lava, and wooden weapons can still catch fire.

Maybe that’s what happened?

For the master sword, have you seen a huge pink tree in the distance? Try going there.

I was gliding over the top of some lava, but I didn’t go in it, so even with a piece on if I get too close to the lava I will still die? Is there no way to get full immunity?

I also don’t remember seeing a huge pink tree, is that in the centre of the map? I have sort of avoided the centre of the map, as all of the enemies seem absurdly strong there and I often end up getting one shot by random trash enemies while trying to explore, so I figured I’d avoid that area until a later date.

@Eel That's the beauty of this game. Dungeon too hard at the moment? Don't fret, since you can always come back to it later, and do something else instead. It's not like the past games where you could be stuck on a boss for hours, and not be able to progress.

@Pizzamorg you should be able to see the forest from the mountain; big ball of fog with a huge tree. It’s not a difficult area, but it does involve a puzzle, you can’t just float down into it.

Immunity to lava? Not that I know. If you feel more comfortable with a full set of the armor, a Hylian npc on the way to Goron city can give you the chest piece if you give him 10 black lizards (you can get them around in the same area).

I do advise you to explore everywhere, don’t let the enemies scare you away from entire parts of the map: you can always run away if things get rough.

@Pizzamorg being close to lava, or going into certain areas of the death mountain area requires two pieces of armor to survive, and yeah what Eel said about the wooden weapons and not touching fire or lava (if you get the full set and have a great fairy upgrade each of the three pieces twice, then you gain total fire immunity, not lava though, this isn't necessary at all either, it's just cool) The Master Sword quest is a ways North of Hyrule Castle in a big foggy forest, follow the path in, and then you have to get past some puzzles

@pizzamorg
I used to hide behind the concrete arches/beams when Thunderblight would whip out the laser attacks. Sure-fire way to avoid damage.

For what it's worth - Thunderblight, IMO, is more difficult than the final boss...and the rest of the main story was a breeze after I finished Thunderblight. I did him last of all the four beasts though, and the other champion abilities learned came in very handy, particularly Daruk's Protection for a temporary shield, and Mipha's Grace when I'd die and get revived.

It’s well worth it though, Urbosa’s Fury is awesome.

I think I just felt so defeated, because I got so close and then the boss just busts out another phase with no warning and I’d burned through everything I had just to get to that point. Like weren’t the first two phases hard enough? Why make it so absurdly hard?

When I go back and face this thing, it won’t seem so bad because I know the boss just pulls more crap out of it’s ass right at the end, but at the same time it doesn’t change the attrition problem. If it takes all of my healing items/fairies/self res/shields just to get to stage 3, that means he can still effectively just one two punch me right at the end regardless.

I am going to take @Eel’s advice I think, try and obtain the Master Sword, clear out Death Mountain and then come back to this again. Hopefully the Master Sword and the DM power will be enough to give me that final push through to the end of the boss fight. Although it does mean I’ll have to spend hours again searching for shields, stocking up on food items, hunting for fairies etc which just sounds like a complete PITA but I guess the game has left me no other choice.

I actually did make it into the forest yesterday, but it seems really buggy? Lots of trees pop in right in front of me like I am playing Pokemon Shield again, this can often make it seem like there is a path forwards when there isn’t, forcing me to get teleported back to the checkpoint again. Very annoying.

Thanks for the advice @FroZtedFlakerZz, I’ll grab myself a second piece then, before heading into the DM mine.

@Pizzamorg Np, but yeah the forest is probably the laggiest place on the map, but even then it shouldn't be TOO bad, there's a lot of fog, trees, and vegetation to slow down the game though, although the pop-in may just be from the fog abstracting some of your line of sight.
