List of Contents
|Road to the Ancient Lab|
|Story Chapter||Chapter 1|
|Unlock Conditions||Clear the Battle: The Battle of Hyrule Field|
|1||Escort Zelda to the marked area at the center of the map. Defeat enemies if needed, especially the strong ones for some extra loot and useful items.|
Flee from the Guardian and make your way to the next marked area.
If you somehow managed to defeat the Guardian at this point, the battle will immediately end and you'll miss out the other chests and items in the remaining areas of the map.
Head to the Unearthed Guardians marked on your map and activate both of them to cripple the enemy Guardian.
You will also unlock Zelda as a playable character in this part of the battle.
Make use of the Order feature to move around the map and quickly finish the objective.
Lure the enemy Guardian towards the designated area for a clear shot and finish it off to win the battle.
You can split the party members and order them to move to a specific location. Simply press the + button, select a character, and choose a location. Make use of this feature to accomplish tasks quickly especially if the objectives are far from each other.
Also, take note that the order only executes when you're not controlling the character you ordered to move.
Activating the Unearthed Guardians as instructed will deal a significant amount of damage to the enemy Guardian and stagger it for a while, making it easier to take down later.
The Guardian's beams are its most dangerous attack since the Guardian tracks your movement before firing them at a high speed.
If you're using Link, you can deflect a beam by performing a parry (hold ZL then press Y). The right moment to parry is when the Guardian's eye lights up.
However, if you're using Zelda or Impa, you can only dodge sideways with the same timing as Link's parry to avoid the attack.
If the other party members are still far away, order them to move to the Guardian's location to help out in taking it down. You're going to need all the help you can get especially if you're underleveled or still getting used to combat.
Find a flower on your way to the targeted position.
Find a tree stump in the area where the Guardian first appears.
Find a glowing spot directly opposite to the Unearthed Guardian.
Find a flower south of the outpost.
Find a pinwheel in corner before activating the Unearthed Guardian.
Find a balloon east of the southern outpost.
