We love Kass, the gentle bard from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In fact, his set of sub-quests and the eventual ending to his original tale is one of the most charming sequences in the game, and actually provides some important insight into the overarching story. If you haven't worked through all of Kass's shrine quests yet, you should do so.
He's very prominent in the Champions' Ballad DLC story, too, and that's the focus for the latest 'Tips from the Wild' news post on the Switch. It encourages you to listen to his ballads and also speak to him a second time in each location to ensure you don't miss anything.
Due to running out of ideas or some cruel / mischievous humour, the free gifts in this news post are 2 Roasted Bird Drumsticks and 2 Raw Bird Drumsticks. That's right, enjoy gorging on Kass's brethren as he performs for you at no charge.
Be a jerk, in other words.
Better not tell that to the Rito female in Gerudo Town trying to get some chicken to eat...
I'm sure Kass doesn't mind. He seems very open minded. And maybe Rito descend from birds of prey, not cuckoos?
Now that I'm replaying the game in Master Mode I've been making a point to get these goodies every time I start the game. BTW/that final DLC boss was a real challenge in MM.
One thing I didn't care much for is Kass and his silly riddles. Some people aren't good at them and I didn't like resorting to a guide.
"Eat ROASTED BIRD while listening to his ballads"
A Caniballism in front of Anthro Parrot ?!
... that ain't right...
@JHDK I found the Ganon bosses a lot tougher on MM. Not sure if you got fully crafted gear and hearts. I used full Barbarian armor with no food to beat the boss.
For anyone with the Champion's Ballad DLC, did you know that each Champion now has a hidden diary in their hometowns? Go check them out! The game tells you about them if you visit the Divine Beasts a few extra times after beating the Champion's Ballad DLC. Also the members of each tribe that were closest to the champions have new stories to tell you about each one. Plus after the DLC you can talk to Kass in Rito Villiage and he has one final song to play for you. Lots of cool extra diolog just hidden in the game if you care to find it.
@Biff_ARMStrong Agreed. The character is a terrible lyricist, haha. He would ask if the song “moved you” which always made me laugh.
I love how the game lets you go vegan if you want and still get all bonuses that meat provides.
Who would go through the trouble of being Vegan in a game of fantasy? Does that mean you would wield a sword to vanquish people in real life? I'm intrigued in this argument.
@Biff_ARMStrong The Gannon bosses took me a few tries but that last one, and especially the the phase with the 9 enemies, drove me crazy and made me quit and restart a whole bunch of times. I kept letting him get back up to 75% health while breaking a bunch of my weapons in the process. It did make finally getting the Master Cycle all the sweeter though.
@Ryu_Niiyama “Bird” is only as specific as “mammal.” I don’t think eating a hamburger makes a human a cannibal.
@JHDK Oh so maybe you don't have a fully augmented Master Sword yet? I found the key to defeating the Ganon bosses is to use Urbosa's fury. Without it, I don't think they would be possible due to health regen and the frail weapons
@Biff_ARMStrong I haven't done the first DLC in MM yet so I didn't have the fully powered master sword. I had all 120 shrines finished but not the most powerful weapons going in. The Master Trials gave me problems when I did them in a regular play through. I anticipate a ton of frustration going through them again in MM.
@JHDK I see. Okay well Master Mode Trials only have one main problem, FLOOR 10 in the beginner trials. You will have to use the sneak strike technique on the lizalfos in order to defeat them. You can find tutorial videos online. Also, use your lightning weapons to stun enemies. Especially those hard hitting Moblins. Use spears as well against weak enemies, spears aren't strong but they're safe
@burchdude65 shrugs Merely made a comment in the same vein as the article.
Um... don’t the Rito eat birds though? You’re not eating roast Rito, that’d be huge.
@Anti-Matter I don't think is Cannibalism; I find it like a human eating a monkey: it's not ethic, but definitely isn't Cannibalism.
^ This guy gets it. Their design in this game is more akin to a falcon than a chicken. They are the predators, not the prey.
So yeah, cook up those gourmet chicken theighs. Kass might even ask you for one, no shame necessary.
Hope it was his family. He was one of the most annoying characters in this game. Damn I can't wait til the next Zelda game launches and actual has a story and an entire cast of memorable characters so we can forget this garbage story and 99% forgettable characters.
@Ryu_Niiyama Of course. I’m just being serious about it as a joke.
@burchdude65 Tone is difficult to read in text.
@Ryu_Niiyama That’s definitely true.
"and also speak to him a second time in each location to ensure you don't miss anything"
Well, I am not done with Kass yet. However, I missed some of his "second speeches" sadly because as soon as you have done the shrine he's gone in that location!
