During the events of Breath of the Wild, Link traveled to the town of Gerudo deep in the desert. Among the practical jokes he performed there was a shrine quest called The Perfect Drink. Our hero had to help local bartender Flossa by carrying ice to the bar before it melted. To her gratitude, she said that when Link was old enough, he would drink Noble Pursuit to celebrate.
The Legend of Zelda: Kingdom of Tears takes place quite some time after the events of the first game, and although the legal drinking age in Hyrule is unknown, it’s safe to say that Link is a few years older. . And like many of the callbacks to the original game, return to the bars in Gerudotown to pick up a Noble Pursuit drink.
You can also make your own drink. But oddly enough, the recipe for this drink doesn’t actually contain anything that could be considered alcohol, just palm nuts, hydromelon, bolt fruit, and rock salt. So it’s not exactly clear why Flossa only gives Link a drink when he’s old enough. A fermentation process is probably required.
This finer detail was shared on the Zelda subreddit, and fans really appreciated the callback to the previous game (thanks GamesRadar). One comment said, “That’s really cool!! How many callbacks are there? I would have missed most of them.” Based on this, other comments speculate that Link’s age must be around 20 to 21 years old by now.
However, while there’s a lot to look back on, Tears of the Kingdom is about moving forward. Using Link’s new abilities, players have created all sorts of inventions to travel through Hyrule. The simplest of these is a ridiculously long bridge that allows players to skip puzzles, enemies, blocked areas, and anything else that gets in their way.
To make things even more complicated, one player created an engine that works in-game. This includes a large zonai wheel mounted on several plates that eventually form a piston and shaft. It’s not the most impressive invention, but it’s based on Newtonian physics rather than Zonai technology.
It can be terrifying to see all these intricate machines while you’re struggling to get your glider up in the air just barely. please do not worry. One of his Tears of the Kingdom players has created a website to share his custom builds of various contraptions.
Contains crafting requirements and blueprints to help you on your adventures, such as catapults and weaponized gliders. But there are also plans for silly things like korog torture instruments, mechanized elephants, and even a man with a giant flame lord. |
