Turn camera away from goblin, lure Ganon into corner, slay

If the camera is off the goblin, it won't render and it will stay passive and out of aoe range

To the guy asking for bandages, the story map where you invade the shrine to links many forms has a ton of them. If you use the mats pots, you can get up to 10ish?per run, maybe more

Is that the one that asks you to defeat the "horse rider"? I got that wrong the first time because Ganondorf rides a horse in some cutscenes.

Ah yeah, that's also a thing.

Been doing quite a few things out of order recently. Current Lv. 4+ weapons gotten (usually without getting some of the lower-ranked ones). Some, particularly the Grand Travels weapons, can easily be done using someone other than the required character:

Hylian Sword (Link, unlocked his Lv. 3 weapon before I got the 4+ version so yeah, but at least he can now hit enemies for supereffective damage using any of the elements in the game now)
Gauntlets (Link)
Summoning Gate (Lana)
Dominion Rod (Zelda)
Great Sword (Ganondorf)
Scimitar (Zant)
Ring (Wizzro)
Sand Wand (Toon Link)
Cutlass (Tetra, did it using only a 5* Rank 1 Cutlass and Tetra leveled to Lv. 40)
Rito Harp (Medli)
Bell (Marin, actually has no character requirements at all so I went hogwild using my most powerful ones haha)
Rental Hammer (Ravio, him and Yuga are the only ones to date where I properly unlocked all the weapons in order for this edition)
Picture Frame (Yuga)

What level weapons should I tackle the Lorule map with? I tried to beeline all the characters after beating Legend mode and the Lorule characters were the only ones it was too hard to get to.

Technically, it's best to do so with Lv. 3 weapons, but if it's only characters, it should be fine with a decent Lv. 1 weapon.

It can help if you're not "behind" (messed up earlier objectives) but what helped for me was to sick the other captains on them with the command function. Once you engage one, they'll somewhat stop trying to retreat, so you can sort of abuse their aggro like this. Also, if your other captains are going after them you can quickly swap and at least try to delay them.

I just had trouble with it. Let Gharim (not checking the name's spelling) go after the one Lana that he wants to go after.

Go for the two in the West while they're still close together.

If you know it's coming you can get to the fairy fountain as they are coming out of it and try to fight all three at once. If they are mostly engaged with you they won't try to run away and you can command the other captains onto whoever gets away to slow them down. This worked for me on normal but I'm sure it's harder on the higher difficulties.

Also, make sure to make a save right before you finish the previous objective so that you can easily retry if you fail.

I'm really getting my teeth into the first adventure mode map and it's fun as poo poo. I like how it encourages me to learn characters I otherwise wouldn't give a drat about. It rules except for when it made me unlock Tingle and play as Tingle to unlock Twili Midna.

What's the point of the level each individual stage has though? Just a recommended minimum character level?

It took me a while to figure out that the "level" there doesn't mean character level, but rather the relative difficulty of challenges of that particular type.

Once I figured out how easy it is to cheese the maps where every attack is devastating by just using arrows, those became my favorite maps to unlock things on. The level of all of those maps is 1. It doesn't matter if it says it's level 10. It's actually 1.

Link with the master sword or Zelda with the baton are indispensable for those levels

I've been doing the same thing. Darknuts are sometimes tough if they whirl their sword towards your butt though. I also sometimes get whacked by weak mobs while running through them but you're left with 1/4 heart and can still complete it with an A rank for damage taken.

What map / where abouts is this one located? I don't see any link 4+ on Grand Travels, I'm guessing its one of the ones on Lorule but the only one I've managed to get to so far is the 4+ epona. (Didnt try the mission since I only have rank 1)

You are correct. Koholint Island had mainly side character Lv. 4+ weapons + one tertiary Link and Lana Lv. 4+ weapon (because Link and Lana were the only characters who had more than two weapons in OG Hyrule Warriors; Zelda's Dominion Rod was DLC in the original so it was shunted off to Lorule), Grand Travels had mainly villain Lv. 4+ weapons as well as the secondary Lv. 4+ weapon for characters who have one (with the exception of Linkle because the Boots weapons are all found on Koholint), while Lorule basically has all the Lv. 4+ weapons for characters with a choice for multiple weapons that aren't found in the other two maps (which includes the primary weapon for everyone who has one).

So Link's Hylian Sword is found in the Lorule Map, on a red square mission.

How difficult is it to A-Rank the mission in P-2 of the first Adventure Map? "Fight as a warrior of water!" Lv. 3, limited to Link. I haven't unlocked the Great Fairy weapon set for him yet, and I really don't feel like slogging all the way down to the opposite corner of the map just to grab it so I can clear this to get access to Linkle's level 1 Pegasus Boots set.

Is there some min-max thing going on with weapon levels? I think i've seen someone mention unlocking them in a certain order? So far my plan was to just play the adventure maps in order, dipping into later ones only to unlock chars who are required in earlier maps (like toon link for the first map).

You don't need to use the recommended element type to get a good rank.

Higher rank weapons get more slots which means more weapon skills, so even if you're not getting all those Rank 3-4 weapons for the power boost they give, it's worth getting them for the amount of weapon skills you can cram onto a higher-rank weapon (+ the Lv. 4+ versions have a secondary element in addition to the main element to hit more enemies for supereffective damage).

There's no need to unlock weapons in a set order if you're experienced at the game (I've been unlocking weapons out of order for quite some time now because as someone who played Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends, I've gotten a pretty good understanding of the various movesets to know how to possibly proceed with an underpowered character... and occasionally get around restrictions).

I say that you can get away with just a decent lv. 1 weapon here though because the early missions of Lorule Map is not very hard and can be done with lv. 10 characters packing a good lv. 1 weapon, up to and including unlocking Yuga, as well as Ravio and Yuga's Lv. 2 weapons (something underlined by the fact that both come at lv. 15 when unlocked).

Yes, just note that you're gonna have to keep the first player safe, also they'll have to be in the fort for the enemies to spawn.

Yeah, it holds like 20ish drops in memory before other stuff forces despawn. It usually is just lovely bronze captain drops so I wouldn't like go out of my way to scour the map for them, but grab em if you see em.

You will loathe that event like the plague. If you don't make sure that the Hylian Captain makes it back safe and sound to the Allied Base, he will come back as a Hylian Ghost and bring all sorts of misfortunes on your army like making everyone flee (if the map allows a secondary character, them fleeing makes the game think they died which is why you lost) or taking away your Rupees, lowering your allies' morale, etc.
