It has nothing to do with skill You can take every game and make it hard just by making the enemies instakill you It's cheap,really
Hero Mode isn't insta-kill or cheap. You need a lot more hearts/blue tunic. You could've had more hearts when you got to Lorule, you could have had fairies with you - They shouldn't dumb down the damage just because you lacked resources to deal with it.
Or he could have remembered the red Taurus dealing 2 hearts damage in regular gameplay and been all "**** he's gonna be a whopping eight hearts, better try to not get hit!"
I find it hard to dislike a tennis match when the ball is made of fire and the rackets are swords and spears and one of the guys is on a flying horse. -Siriay
I don't agree with tacking on hero mode as a way to pretend that a game has more lifespan than it does - but nevertheless, what are you doing going to Lorule with only 7 hearts? Given that you know that you're going to take 4x damage, you know the enemies deal more damage from your first playthrough, what were you thinking really? Get heart pieces, get fairies, don't get hit etc. etc. It kinda sounds like you just suck.
Why does everyone have to attack people when they are having a hard time with a game? You guys are REAL cool because you can beat a game with out getting hit or dying, bet your parents are proud.
Anyway TC, just try to utilize your items and try to keep your distance, I'm on hero mode as well, I use the bow a lot and it helps, use your shielld as much as possible. I'd get the hyrian shield from turtle rock first that way you can block magical attacks as well. Either the shield or tunic will do you good.
But, no, I get your point. To me, a "Hero mode" should do more than just instakill players. It should vary a lot of things and introduce trickier puzzles/challenges. It sounds like it's a bit of a lazy add-on.
I'm almost 100% done on the standard mode and won't bother with it for the reasons above. Though also I get bored of games fast, so even if I do attempt it, it won't be till next year. Better to allow time after finishing a game before playing it again.
i agree TC hero mode is not harder its just more anoying
harder woudl eb giving bosses new atacks and new AI scripts
harder woudl eb changing the enemy lay out abit
harder woudl be harder puzzels ect
Or...harder is making enemies deal more damage?
That is only valid is you can't play through the entire game while only getting hit a few times... You shouldn't even be taking on hero mode unless you can go through the game without getting hit every five seconds. But damn sure not if you only have seven hearts going into lorule. Taking more damage only matters if you actually get hit. If you actually slow down and take your time; thinking about how much damage an enemy will do. Thinking about the best plan of action. and NOT playing the game like a hack-and-slash. My next challenge is Hero mode 3-heart run.
