I beat the Elephant and Bird divine beasts. I also took care of the dragon of Wisdom. I'm gonna hold off on more divine beasts because I just made it to the Northeast area on the map with Robbie and such. This is by far my most favorite area. It really feels like Zelda 1. It even matches the map of Zelda 1 with that labyrinth island. In Zelda 1 it was just a tiny island you would take a raft to. There's also a dragon in this area that I'm gonna take out. At one point it flew in front of the moon, and that was crazy awesome.
On that labyrinth island I managed to beat some guardians for real. That has really stepped up my game a ton. I'm going to try to take out some of the flying sentry guardians next. Them and the Lynels are the only things that I'm still worried about. And if I fail, big deal. I die and go do other stuff to get stronger before I try again.
One thing I want to know is about the Goron area. I've been afraid to go in there because fire/lava. There must be an item to provide heat resistance. If I head to Goron land, will I find this item (presumably an armor set), or do I seek it elsewhere? Do I just eat some cold foods and tough it out? I have some frozen meats, and I know where to get more.
