Same Moveset as the Previous Lynels

This Lynel uses the same attack pattern as the ones that you've already defeated, the only difference is this one's stronger.

Use the Remote Bomb rune when it prepares to breathe fireballs and the Cryonis rune when it charges.

Defeat it much faster by using your elemental rods to break its weak-point gauge.

Treasure Chest 3 is at a different spot on the map. Maybe do the 2 layer map, like the Korok images?

There is another chest at Korok seed 1 location. If you are looking at the korok seed 1 screenshot just turn around, it’s right behind you up against the tree.
