Whew....a couple things to note:

- The bow and the tornado rod are Link's best friends
- The Ice Ruins are truly the hardest dungeon in the game
- Yuganon was truly the hardest boss in the whole game. Helmasaur comes in as runner-up.
- Died roughly a hundred times in my run. Each death was followed by a flurry of curses from yours truly.

All in all, good times. It's nice being challenged by a Zelda game...even if you kinda have to restrict yourselves in a few aspects to create that challenge... >_>

Edit: Also...just to clarify, when I say no upgrades, I mean no armor upgrades were collected, no upgrades were made to the Master Sword, none of Ravio's weapons were upgraded by Maimai, and no optional items were collected (like bottles). I did buy all the weapons from Ravio though, just so I don't have to trudge my way back from the shop every time I died.

Would getting the Blue Tunic or level 2 shield matter? The shield doesn't seem to matter in a normal play for me and normal foes do like 6 hearts on hero mode in the dark world so I don't see how wanting to change Link's look to the better Blue would still not "count"

Since blue tunic lowers damage, I'd say so.

It lowers damage, but since everything is at least doing 6 hearts or so when you get it everything would still 1HKO you I'd think.

It would let you take multiple hits from weaker enemies without dying though. The shield would also give you an advantage over a normal shield because it lets you block magic attacks.

I don't think the upgrades other then the bottles possibly would have helped. Sword upgrades would make things faster but I'm thinking that most of the bosses have to be done well enough it wouldn't matter that much

Fairy's would have been fantastic for you though.

Might try this

I imagine it makes traversing the light world a bit easier since it's absolutely riddled with enemies.
