Have done all 4 Divine Beats. Been upgrading armor sets. Getting more and more shrines and cock seeds. One more great fairy to find. Next thing is to get the missing memories. There's like 4 that are outside the Castle but with a view of it. No idea where one of them is...no identifiers other than it being inside a fucking forest.
I'm still on my third Divine Beast. Only finished a third of the shrines.
Keep getting sidetracked by monuments in the distance.
Don't know about kick ass armor but you can upgrade the barbarian set with their horns.I've only downed one Lynel to get the lighting arrows. I've passed on one by Death Mountain and another south of the Great Plateau. I'll came back to em later though.
Heard you get a kick ass armor if ya eliminate enough of em.
Finally succeeded in taking down a white lynel, got a sword worth 58 power but the bow is sick, 49*3. Decent shield too and a ton of horns. Red ones are poverty conpared. Hard fight, died about ten times. The charging sword swipe is the hardest to avoid, key is to attack him first and you kinda duck under his sword
Highly recommend ancient armor too for anyone on the fence about buying it. I've got chest and legs to level 3 and they have 18 armor each
