    ...you must pick it up immediately...do not run over and do something else assuming it will still be there. The game deletes items very quickly. Just got shocked by an electric bat and lost my high end guardian shield down a cliff...went to go do a little mining and came back where the shield was...it was gone. %@&^!!!

    The problem was that it fell down a cliff. Things tend to despawn when they aren't near the player.

    Nintendo Switch is just another way to call Breath of the Wild.

    Also, your weapon and shield are still going to break anyways so it doesn't matter.

    most item should a place where it spawn on the map, so a blood moon respwans them (and you can redo the "test of" shrines to get the guardian stuff)

    Once you get the Hylian sword and shield, those two you get to keep forever but they still break (reloads after 10mins).

    yeah I got the master sword, so I like to use that all the time because it allows me to save my good weapons knowing it will regenerate. so then if I'm in a real bind I have my good backups

    Once you've upgraded your slate a few times, you can also take a picture of the equipment to add it to your logbook in order to track it, similar to shrines.

    It's perfect to kill the Guardians but too bad they're brought back again after that red moonlight. :( I had thought I could clear the area of 'em. :(

    They are easy to kill and the items they drop have a good value. So it's good they respawn.

    what's this about blocking the laser shot with a shield? I tried to block it and it disintegrates my shield. I tried parrying and it wasn't even close to hitting the guardian. But daruk's protection is a sure fire guardian killer, in fact that has made the most dangerous areas accessible to me now

    If you're too far away, the guardian will likely move out of the way of the parried laser. If you're closer, though, it should hit and do massive damage.

    I dropped all my weapons, shields, and bows at once to try to take pictures of anything I missed for the conpendium. To my surprise I think that the weapons I dropped first disappeared and unloaded right after they were dropped!

    Just do a couple at a time (or make a save first before doing it). No need to be risky with it since you're voluntarily dropping things. :P

    This bugs me more than anything. I'll be hunting with a weak-ass bow, and chase the animal down after putting 4 arrows into it, and it will suddenly vanish right in front of me. Complete bullshit, but meat is easy to come by with my Bokoblin Amiibo.

    A fox ran for a while near me and a cliff wall, and he ran right to me before fading away, it was hilarious.
