I was planning to do a 100% completion run, including a full Hyrule Compendium. About halfway through the game, I realized I never took a picture of my first dungeon boss. I didn't worry too much at first, since you can buy additional pictures in Hateno, but now that I bought every single monster picture available, that boss is still missing (as well as a few others, which I assume to be the final boss and some special enemies I haven't seen yet).
You will have the opportunity to purchase the missing boss pictures from Symin at the Ancient Hateno Tech Lab. They will cost 500 rupees each and will only be available after you beat the game. Just look for the Elite Enemy Picture set when buying pictures.
If you have the DLC and haven't beat the illusory realm blight Gannons yet in order to upgrade your hero powers you can take a picture of them for your compendium. That will give you a second chance to photograph those \"Elite\" enemies if you don't want to buy the pictures.
The Hyrule Compendium compiles pictures and information of every Creature, Enemy, Material, Weapon, Shield, Bow, and treasure. In order to register an entry, Link must take a picture of the subject with the Camera Rune. Alternatively, once the \"Sunshroom Sensing\" Side Quest is completed, Link can purchase any missing picture from Symin for 100 Rupees each. Once Calamity Ganon is defeated, pictures of elite enemies and bosses can be bought for 500 Rupees each. Entries saved in the Hyrule Compendium can be detected using the Sheikah Sensor +.
Item_Mushroom_C - A picture of a Sunshroom. This would have been included among the pictures Symin sells you, but to be able to buy pictures for the Compendium, players are required to already have an entry for the Sunshroom, and since you can't overwrite your own pictures with those of the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab's Guidance Stone, this goes unused.
I don't have this on Switch yet, but one of the last few pictures that I took of this game on my Wii U - through Miiverse - had my Link looking like this while holding what was my favorite sword until I broke it on Ganon's big head lol.
Yeah, this is only a spoiler if you read the article. I did the homeowner quest and still had no idea Tarrey Town had to be unlocked, and hadn't even heard a mention of it in the game so far (never went to see Hudson). I could have simply chosen to ignore the headline and I'd have forgotten about this completely. If you're not looking at guides, you don't even know what Tarrey Town is until starting the quest (I did from looking up some armor stuff, and if you even recognize the town in the headline, then you've looked at some kind of guide already anyway). If y'all would have just ignored this, this would not have spoiled ANYTHING. You'd still wander off and find Hudson on your own after buying your house and THEN you'd realize, \"oh, that's that town I could unlock.\" Like I said, zero mentions of this town in the game until that quest actually begins, meaning you don't know it exists, or you already know that it needs to be unlocked. Hell, I've even spoken to the Goron, Rito, and Zora and thought nothing of it yet (and didn't even realize their relation in names).
As for people skimming the article and finding the spoiler that one is more seriously spoilery because of the title. A guide for \"how to unlock the town\" Answer: Complete the house quest in Hateno and talk to Bolson & Hudson again, and a \"step by step how to of completing a massive quest after you start the quest to unlock it, complete with pictures of each person and location involved\" provide different perceptions before you click the link
It's a good guide, but I think a lot of people clicked in expecting a guide on how to start the process and unlock the quest, not a complete guide on completing the quest. If it said it was a guide on completing that less people might have clicked in and discovered, in pictures, what was involved.
Imagine you knew about either, read a headline that said \"how to unlock the hidden town\" and didn't mind being spoiled on where to do that because you didn't know about it before and instead find the complete lengthy quest spelled out in words and pictures instead if giving you the location to start it as you might expect from the headline.
\"didn't mind being spoiled on where to do that because you didn't know about it before and instead find the complete lengthy quest spelled out in words and pictures instead if giving you the location to start it as you might expect from the headline.\"
Sorry, I'm really not dumb enough to believe that something prefaced with \"Guide:\" would not give me an article with pictures and explanations on how to do the quest. In fact, I click on every guide expecting that because it wouldn't be a guide otherwise. People complaining about spoilers should have ignored the article, plain and simple. They let their curiosity get the best of them. And like I already said, they could have read just the first portion to only find out where to do that quest and fully avoid the step-by-step guide on the quest itself. I don't know why you're arguing for an option that already exists.
The really spoiler-y thing is that it doesn't just say how to unlock the quest, as implied by the title, but how to do the whole entire thing, pictures included. If they mentioned at the top that there would be spoilers or said \"spoilers\" in the name of the article or whatever, then perhaps it would give people less room to kvetch. But I definitely feel like it was implied that this would only tell you how to unlock the quest, not do the whole thing. Luckily I'd finished it a while ago, short of sending Bolson & Co back home. (I just hate talking to them so it was dumb luck. Learned from reading this comment section that talking to them sends them back to your house!)
@Damo Still advocating a neutral BotW picture for these articles so people can't complain about being spoiled by pictures on the front page, too. You guys really can take a few simple steps to cut down on the kvetching.
There, you'll find Loone under the cliff face, who gives you the Guardian Slideshow quest. To complete it, you must look for Guardians - in her words, \"flying ones\", \"small ones\" and \"ones that walk around\" - and take pictures of them with your camera rune. 59ce067264
