I'm certain whenever a game has "optional" stuff the quality control goes out the window.
I have not the words for how shit the Mt Lanaryu dragon fight was. In the end I just loaded an old save and didn't bother with it. Yes, they took what should have been an epic fight with a dragon and completely fucked it up.
How? I had 52 arrows, by the time I decided it was too shit to complete I was down to 30 and only had 2 hits out of over 20. Why? Because it fucks with your sense of distance, you'd think you have a good shot - nope, out of range. This one? No, dragon moves too fast. The first hit is easy because its not flying around but after that? And every damn time it flies off somewhere else and you can't get to it.
Whatever fuckwit came up with this ought to hang their head in shame forever.
Combined with a hidden shrine that renders your shrine sensor completely fucking useless, tonight's go has been utter crap from start to finish.
Well, not quite, did get Gerudo Tower and completed the Hyrule map but after that it was all down to shitedom.
Also blocks any means of upgrading some armour as it requires you shooting pieces off dragons and I'm unlikely to be doing that now. Fucking idiots.
