  • Hey, does that BotW tip in your signature contain story spoilers or something? I really wanna know what it is but I'm hesitant to hover my mouse over it haha

    • neeeeeeeeeeeeeevermind

    • Oh, sorry. It wasn't a plot spoiler or anything, but sometimes people like to discover the mechanics for themselves. The tip was that you can climb in the rain by taking four "steps" upward and then jumping up the slope. Then you'll slide down just a little less distance that you jumped, so you get a little more than four "steps" of distance, just at a greater cost of stamina that would without rain.

      Step, step, step, step, jump, slide. Step, step, step, step, jump, slide.

      With climbing gear, you can get up to seven steps before sliding down, though I usually jump on six, just to be safe.

      The fact that people still list rain as one of the main flaws of that game just amazes me. Like the only thing they do is climb sheer cliffs, so every time it rains, they just stand there and wait for it to stop.

      ...I should really check my notifications more often.

  • Sorry for not responding to your post in my theory thread yet. I've had internet problems on and off for the past week, and plan to respond tomorrow. Also, thank you for sympathy... If you wish I will PM later to explain. If not, that's okay, too.

  • Hello, Evran, :) Just wanted to let you know that I have seen both your comment and Jason's in my theory thread, but haven't replied for lack of being able to upload the pictures on Xomf that I was planning to use. :(

  • hehe nice avatar, but young link beats adult link

    Posted by Young Link 12

    • Young Link is pretty awesome, but to my mind, there's just no beating the Link/Midna duo.

  • I'm curious as to why you don't think the HMS and Skull Kid in MM are the same ones from OoT.

    Posted by StinksAwakening

    • Oh, sorry I never responded to this. I don't pay much attention to my wall. Anyway, since Termina has counterparts of a lot of Hyrule's citizens and the HMS and Skull Kid both have access to the portal and are found either just on the Hyrule side or just on the Termina side, I haven't seen much reason to believe that they are from Hyrule rather than Termina. Though I think someone pointed out that the HMS references the Happy Mask Shop with no indication that such a thing exists in Termina, so there's some indication that he is indeed from Hyrule. For Skull Kid, people like to use that "fairy kid taught me a song in the forest" quote, but that requires that Link performed that action off-screen in the CT and that the Skull Kid who was familiar enough with the song to exclaim "Hey! You know Saria's Song!" -- implying that he already knew not only the song but Saria herself -- didn't know how to play it. Or the Skull Kid is referencing Saria as the 'fairy kid,' but since he already knows Saria's name, why say "that fairy kid" instead? Also, in Skull Kid's case, it isn't even a matter of Terminian counterparts: we see three skull kids as a child, and they all show musical inclination. As an adult, we can kill them and they're replaced the same as any enemy, so there are potentially many more. So it's certainly possible that they're the same Skull Kid, but I don't understand why people so often take the fact for granted.

    • I believe HMS is from Hyrule, but not Skull Kid. I've seen enough evidence otherwise, as for myself, anyways.

      Posted by Linkle

    • Well, just because he [maybe] isn't from Hyrule doesn't mean that he can't be the same HMS from OoT. I don't remember the HMS ever claiming to be from Hyrule in OoT or MM. I think he claims to be a traveller in OoT, just like he does in MM. As you've mentioned, he travels through the same path that Link takes to get to Termina; which kind of suggests that they are if nothing else, coming from the same place; I think it makes things less complicated if we just assume them to be the same HMS. I mean, what's the likelihood that the these three characters, commonly believed to be the ones from OoT, pass through the same exact path? According to the Deku Tree, the Lost Woods was a barrier to deter outsiders; assuming [perhaps incorrectly] that the forest we see in MM is beyond the Lost Woods, it would seem that the way out of Hyrule is through the Lost Woods; and that all three characters (Link, HMS, and Skull Kid) were in the process of either leaving Hyrule or returning from Termina.
