Nintendo seems to have a simple philosophy with its DLC content in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - if you want to enjoy the content you have to work at it. The Champions' Ballad in DLC Pack 2 is no different, and it kicks off with a particularly tricky section on the Great Plateau.
Stealth is certainly a good idea here, so the latest 'Tips from the Wild' post on Nintendo Switch offers a helping hand.
If you load the game from the news post on the system you get ingredients to make 'Sneaky Steamed Fish' - three Silent Shrooms, a Stealthfin Trout and a Silent Princess.
So there you go, sadly there's no recipe called 'Super Fast Steak' for those of us lacking our youthful reflexes. Darn.
Or use the Majora’s Mask. I only died twice, once without it, and the second time I was being a little too bold, haha. I actually enjoyed the segment of the DLC.
No spoilers, but I hope that this is a weapon that you can permanently unlock... though I’m not holding my breath... of the wild.
All I did to beat the "tricky part" is climb up to higher ground and just dive bomb each enemy one by one with the Obliterator, run away, rinse and repeat.
@Biff_ARMStrong Exactly. I used arrows and picked them off with headshots... especially the electric arrows. Bomb arrows were pretty effective too.
@OnBeingHuman Yeah, I did it on master mode so arrows didn't kill the gold and silvers very effectively compared to the obliterator. The Lizard camp I couldn't get high ground so I used the Tower just to be safe.
Skyrim trick: save every 5 seconds just in case (I completely forgot about the existence of Majora's Mask)
@Biff_ARMStrong Oh, interesting. Admittedly, I’m not playing on Master Mode. Seemed too daunting of a task at the time, haha! Maybe after I finish this play through and work through Odyssey, I’ll give it a go.
I refrained from using bomb arrows, wat is the fun in that? Although I used arrows a lot. Also stasis to sneak up on the big guys. And saved a lot. Would be frustrating (though satisfying when completed) to do do all that without saving
@OnBeingHuman I recommend trying Master Mode. Unfortunately Majora's Mask breaks the entire concept but try to ignore it or just use it to save yourself time. The Ganon bosses are a nice challenge though, without Urbosa's Fury they would be impossible due to the weapon shortage of the trial. lol
@Biff_ARMStrong I completely forgot about Urbosa’s Fury!! Yeah, the beginning of the DLC 2 pack was the only time I had ever used the Majora’s Mask. I was reading everyone was talking about how difficult it was, so I opened my inventory and thought, “What items would be the most useful in this moment.”
I’ve been struggling with Thunderblight Ganon till last night. Especially the third form... couldn't seem to get the rhythm down to perform a Flurry Rush (or whatever it’s called.) But alas, he has been defeated, praise the Lord! Haha.
Tip that got me through: Save. Save. Save. Shrines? Try. Try. Try.
@OnBeingHuman Yeah that form is tough. You can parry his attacks but I just save my urbosa's fury for that part to knock him down. In Master Mode you must stay on them and not mess up or else they regenerate health. It's a bit frustrating, especially with limited weapons.
Ice. Arrows. Then One-Hit Obliterator everything.
Actually I think is bad to have a sword powerful than the Master Sword... And it's also ugly AF.
@Zach777 Very smart!
All I did was use arrows. I'm a better Archer than swordsman, so all it took was to find a sweet spot to shoot from and the rest was a piece of cake.
Waterblight Ganon on the other hand though...
One of the few weaknesses of the game is a lack of an automatic recipe book that remembers your successful ingredients. Skyrim got that right.
@Yasaal Yep, that's the hardest boss for me on the DLC. It was the easiest on the main quest but relentless on the DLC plus the limited arrows sucked. Good thing Urbosa's Fury saved the day!
@OnBeingHuman But that's cheating
@cowntsikin I forgot I had Urbosa's fury disabled so had to go through the whole thing without it. Didn't realise about Urbosa's fury until I finished Thunderblight Ganon. But I got the same feelings here, Waterblight was easiest in the main quest and hardest in the DLC lol
@ThomasBW84 Fortunately, Zelda doesn’t have a referee.
In the first part of DLC 2, I used the Sheikah stealth suit and pants, while using Kilton's monster masks for whatever I had to deal with.
Similar concept to using Majora's Mask.
Cheaters finish first.
Snipe every enemy with ice arrows wearing sheikah armor, since they are frozen you can hit them multiple times without them alerting the others. OP
I used ice arrows to freeze them. And the wizard guy killed him with a bomb arrow
I tried that on the fire one. But i think the ice arrows should freeze them in all bits. But be quick because they thaw out very quickly and the one shot thing doesn't work on them then unless you freeze em again lol.
The hard part of the DLC 2 was what you fight at the end of The Champions Ballad. Not gonna say what it is just cause some of you haven't got that far yet.. but if you get through it on Master mode like me, let me know how you did it. It took me a little while
Yeah, I just put on the Sheikah Outfit, crouched on a ledge, and sniped at the enemy encampments with my Ancient Bow (because arrows fired from an Ancient Bow will travel in a straight line).
I died maybe twice, first time was going all in with the One-Hit Obliterator, but the second time, I was caught off guard when a Lizalfos threw a bomb barrel at me while I was sniping. I didn't know they could do that.
Cheating would be wearing Majora’s mask and sneaking into camp and One Hitting everyone.
I'm confused, what are the article and everyone here referring to?
I already finished all EX quests from the second DLC last weekend and none if them took place in the Great Plateau...
Edit: Ah, I have to finish the dungeons first (for a second time)! Didn't know about that.
Also: why would anyone need the sneaky food when there are several outfits with Stealth abilities?
@Yasaal Waterblight killed me for more than 5 times befire I was able beat it haha. The other 3, including the final DLC boss, I only had to play once.
@cowntsikin Ah. Water took me three friggin tries before beating it. The others as well took just one shot. Still, I'm kinda surprised how easy Thunderblight felt. Must be bc of all my Lynel Hunts I do nowadays... Bc Parrying is key as well as the usual flurry rush.
@Yasaal the weapons provided for the Thunderblight fight are pretty good. For the Waterblight fight, you are only given 10 arrows haha.
