    I realized that you can find powerful weapons inside the castle, but as you complete the quests/shrines weapons start receiving an additional effect. You can get the best weapons from fighting lynels. I have a bow with an atk of 32 x 5 and lynel sword over 90 atk thanks to the additional effect. But how about yourself, where is a good place to hunt for those powerful weapons? what is your weapon of choice? and is there a way to horde weapons?

    I thought of dropping them inside my house. but they get erase when the blood moon shows up.

    Get the master sword.... Or there is one map tower you can go to, that has a royal sword on top of it with like 58 Attack power, and lots of durability. HINT It has a skull on top of the tower you can climb. :P

    As soon as i get a sword that doesn't break, i'll eat a bowl of coco puffs with no milk :P

    I've just found this royal weapon: it is VERY powerful (but i don't use it, too afraid to break it xD).
    Best way to find strong weapons is, i think, to explore !

    I like the savage sword that you get from lynels and their bows. I only use them when I'm fighting strong opponents. specially when they get the extra bonuses. and when they get red I wait for those blood moons and then back to hunting lynels. they are the hardest beast in the game even tougher than gannon.

    You can get a new one by revisiting that same place. To be fair, The royal guard to the princess has it, you can take a picture of it if you want for the shiekah archive, or for item scanning. But just remember every blood moon the whole world resets, inculuding monsters and items, so you can easily keep getting it if you ever break it. :P

    There is also a zora blacksmith, you need specific items to make a legendary zora weapon, i haven't done yet, cause i can't find a zora spear. But then there is that robbie guy too, anchient weapons from the guardians. And then don't forget those shrine trials that have those guardins you have to beat to win. Some carry multiple weapons including Ancient weapon +++ :D

    There is also some elemental weapons that are my favorite, you can freeze enemies, put them on fire, shock and paralyze, or even shot "SONIC BOOM" Like a street fighter charater.

    You didn't think that cutscene happens all the time to just piss you off over and over did you? Every time it happens, everything is reset to normal, all monsters/ guardians defeated, and item pickups are reset and can be gotten over again. :P

    According to the official Miniguide, Blood Moon can make stronger enemy types appear if you killed enough of them.

    Not quite. At least, not all of them. I know, because I was grinding Courser Bee Honey and it didn't respawn somewhere I know it should. Some pickups just seem to reset after a certain period of real time.

    So is Just some alter gameplay for difficulty to catch up if you wanna to get challenged?

    It reminds me of resident evil 4, according to a youtube video, the better you do in that game the harder it is, the difficulty automatically adjust according to how good you do, if you are bad it gets lowered (like mortal kombat if you lose too much or Smash bros with the dumb coin scale)

    If you find a good weapon lying around (not in a chest) mark the spots, they respawn.

    EDIT: nm, already said.

    It's also a good idea to use kurok seeds to upgrade your max weapon inventory slots so you'll never run out of good weapons. You just cash in the seeds on the maraca guys wherever they may appear.

    The strongest weapons in the game come from Lynels. My strongest one handed sword is a Savage Lynel Sword thats 100 attack with +42 Attack Up. I also have a 32x5 bow. However the Royal Guard Spear is the best spear in the game which is weird since its the only weapon that beats out the Lynel set.

    Just use it, as it will respawn every once in a while.

    Also, if you use elemental weapons on regular chu chus, they'll drop the element you hit'em with. No need to farm near death mountain for red jelly.

    God damn I hate fighting lynels. I don't think the weapons are worth it since they will break eventually. I just keep using my master sword with lightning combo. Works like a charm so far.
