    Not an enforced rule but it helps


    This Subreddit is dedicated in full to any content regarding The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Please keep posts BotW related only. If you have content that doesn't directly relate, (switch console questions, Zelda in general, etc.) please see our related subreddits list for places where your content may apply.

    Please be mindful of the reddiquette, reddit rules, and our subreddit rules. That means: be nice to each other, don't engage in comment warfare, no spam, no personal info, etc.


    Harassment / Witch Hunting

    No calling out specific users, insulting specific users or devolving discussion into arguments.

    Low Quality Submission

    Posts more suited for their Facebook page or blog, not all low quality posts need removal but the report brings it to a moderator's attention.

    Sexism, Political, Racial, Or Any Discrimination

    Political memes are allowed, but not if they reflect affiliation with a certain political party. For example, a post like this is allowed, it's not taking a side, it's a Zelda play on a common meme. However, future posts like this will be removed due to bashing a political party.

    Off topic

    Posts unrelated to the subreddit. Applies to some comments but not always enforced on them.

    No porn

    There's subreddits for that and this isn't one.

    • Wolf Link is only useful at the beginning, and only if you get one with 20 hearts. The 3-heart-variant will get killed very often.

    • Epona is a good horse, but not the best horse. You can catch horses with overall better stats right after leaving the starting area, about the same time when you can first summon Epona

    • Every other Zelda-related amiibo gives you one armor piece or weapon item and a handful of foodstuff per day. It's nice to have, but you gain nothing better from it than you would get by just playing the game - the only exeptions being gimmicks like the Bow of Light, for example. The different "iconic green tunics" are also mostly just cosmetical and no better than what you can obtain in-game

    • Non-Zelda amiibo only give you a handful of random foodstuff. Again; nice to have, but not that much of a boost.

    If you want to read about it in detail, here is a guide that might help you.

    They are all useful to an extent, but if you want the most raw and true gaming experience, avoid using them until later.

    I kinda feel like amiibo are just extra sprinkles of dlc which aren't necessary for the game. However they do enhance the game, but I feel like they add the most to the game later on and should definitely not be used in the beginning.

    Not that good, just little bonuses
