I had a rather excellent session on Zelda too, though not taking on Lynels - did kill a Molduga last night.
No, this go started off as a kill session for armour upgrades, with Electric Lizalfos as enemy no. 1. Got enough so decided to follow the road out of Gerudo Desert.
That led me to a new stables and a sidequest to save some guy's friends, which turns out to be on this quite mad but equally brilliant high bridge structure that spans an entire canyon. Now high-level fighting can be a pain so the better solution? Bombs. Blow them off, let them go splat, pick up the spoils - yes, this works very well and is very funny. The design of the bridges was a masterpiece while being, due to the graphic effects, hellishly vertiginous.
Got the lot, got the reward - 300 rupees, a very fun quest indeed.
Got the armour upgrades I was after and noticed I now have Unshockable set bonus on the electric armour and Unfreezable on the cold armour, which is very cool. At some point I'm going to have to get into Goron territory but haven't got the food prepared for flame resist.
