New to the forums hello ! Currently I am on my 2nd play this time on mastermode . I finally got the mastersword, upgraded some clothing , gathering resources. Now I'm up at akkala lighting the torches so I can get ancient gear , it's alot different playing now especially on mastermode. But I have a good idea of what I need to do first instead of just randomly running around . In actually well armoured and lots of inventory space, after this it'll be time to do my first divine beast !
Started a Master Mode playthrough recently (I finished my first file earlier this year on Normal). To be honest, the difficulty doesn't feel all that meaningful. Enemies become damage sponges and regen is annoying for weapon durability. But once you get really good armor and weapons (raiding Hyrule Castle helps), it's not all that different from the normal experience. With the way enemies hit, I can't imagine how frustrating TotS will be though. I struggled enough with it on normal.
I am enjoying the water, as well as Eventide Island, even if the Shrine has already been unlocked. I like to imagine that Link fell asleep upon reaching the island, dreaming that he was without his inventory, similar to Link's Awakening. I wish there was more to explore on the sea.
