For those new to the game the free gifts in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - given through 'Tips from the Wild' news posts on Switch - are undeniably helpful. For everyone else they're nice little extras, albeit not particularly exciting.
The latest news post is all about climbing, and so the gifts are designed to help you concoct a handy stamina-boosting meal. By loading the game from the news post you get a Bright-Eyed Crab (the poor fella is already dead) and two Stamella Shroom - cook these to make 'Energizing Fish and Mushroom Skewer', which gives four hearts and a full stamina wheel.
As for the post itself, it reminds you that you can press X for a final leap towards safety when climbing with low stamina; we've all been there.
We'll see what gifts arrive next time; hedge your bets in the comments.
Can't beat the odd little free gift
Stop ignoring Wii U owners Nintendo!
I just can't get enough... B]
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Soon the Wii U will become the new virtual boy. Nintendo won't accept it's existence...
The only useful tip I got from Zelda channel is the one about dog. When the dog is friendly to you, feed it 3 pieces of meat and it will lead you to hidden treasure.
@PhantomSwitch The WiiU is their console Virtual Boy. Abandoned, low sales numbers, few give a damn other than those who had one or for some unexplained reason still do. WiiU is dead and been dead even before the games dried up as they had so much left over inventory they shut down the line to push out the dead stock. No reason to waste time on that embarrassment further.
It's better to cook food that gives you bonus stamina.
Any food that gives you bonus (yellow) stamina, however little, completely refills your green stamina meter.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE You're right. While they're at it, they should add motion controls to the GameCube version of Twilight Princess and stop "ignoring" the people who didn't buy the Wii version. What's that? The GameCube doesn't support motion controls? Sort of like the Wii U doesn't run the Switch's news channel, which is integral to the functionality of this feature? So you're saying my request is ridiculous? Oh, OK.
@tanookisuit Facts. Honestly, if it wasn't called the Wii U, it could have sold more. But people expected too much from it considering it was another part of the Wii timeline.
Wii U is already died.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE its not like they are giving us anything valuable. Its two shrooms and a crab, come on it would take a maximum of 10 mins to get them yourself
@Captain_Gonru - The best bet would have been to be in or near water to not have them break.
Wii U owners should be able to bitch about these useless items, too!
@8-Bit_Zorldo One good deed deserves another
You get a nice little hint and some freebies, thanks Nintendo.
@PhantomSwitch that a completely denying the human stupidity,of course the wii u has a wii build in which also make it a wii just as much as the wii v1 was retrocompatible for gamecube games and accessories. in the past some peoples refused to use wii mote straps and damaged their tv there a lot of video on youtube and dailymotion, the biggest issues the wii u had was lies from competition and bad planning of 3rd titles release.
@tanookisuit " those who had [a Wii U] or for some unexplained reason still do"
Speak for yourself- you sound like an elitist. I for one (and am not alone in this!) still happily fire up games on my Wii U which I will not soon get rid of. Heck, I still have my Gamecube, though these days I play those games on my Wii U since the 'cube output was meant for a CRT and I don't keep one hooked up.
@Qun_Mang Hardly. I had one the day it came out. That's my grumbling over wasting money on something they doomed out of the gate unfortunately as much as the third parties that tossed it under the bus immediately. I sold the disaster off around the time MK8 came out to recoup much of my losses. Until I found out the Switch was a hybrid I wasn't having it either, glad I did get it though as it's the anti-WiiU very much so. At that time I had never sold off a Nintendo system in my life, let alone any in complete disgust.
Wii U had nearly nothing to offer on physical media other than just 1st party games, a fan service box which did nothing for me. Nintendo seemed to learn living in a closed off cost prohibitive fanboy echo chamber is not how to make a profit with the Switch.
Not bad! That'll come in handy for those near a tall structure but are early in the game!
@Captain_Gonru they probably broke, eggs break if you drop them on solid ground, I'd imagine it's best to be at the water's edge when you got the eggs.
@tanookisuit Fair enough, though I would say you got rid of it too soon. As for me, most 3rd-party software that I care about also comes out on PC so I personally never had a worry in that regard. I'm one who buys Nintendo mostly for first party. With Switch being both home and handheld, that is a game-changer now for me in (some) 3rd-party purchases.
@gwendaal what you said actually made no sense
@Qun_Mang Well from my perspective all that was left to buy was Starfox, and ultimately the reviews due to poorly made forced touch mechanics panned it. Xenoblade is too large of a game for me to sit on a TV and do and Mario kart (I have it on Switch) I could easily live without as it doesn't do much for me. It was a dry well as I'm not into digital leases but physical media.
@tanookisuit I got the Wii u many years ago, just to play the new Zelda on it...well,we made it but damn only the inferior version of the game.They could have give some use to the gamepad but Wii u version can,t possibly have any advantage.
@RupeeClock Yep, just need to find an place with lotsa of Endura Carrots.
@Neferupitou As I recall, they're commonly found around great fairy fountains.
Any ingredients that grant temporary stamina will do though, and you only need one of them.
