Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Guide To Defeating Lynels
Lynels are famous for being nasty and tanky behemoths in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are a weird mix of a lion and a centaur but with a whopping health pool of up to 2000 HP. Fighting them can be quite a challenge because when they hit, they hit real hard. Here are a few tips and tricks or strategies on how to kill Lynels.
How To Kill Lynels In Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Lynels are hard hitters that can blast off 6-8 hearts from Link easy, which is why they're not generally recommended bosses to fight early in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. To defeat one may require a bit of strategy and practice. Once Link has defeated one or two Lynels, he will be able to bring down more with practiced ease.
Firstly, using a shield is an absolute must since it can block any powerful attack from the Lynel. Blocking an attack that can damage Link significantly is a proper strategy in the book and it's especially useful for those still learning to time side-hops and backflips. That being said, learning to use side-hops and back-flips is crucial in going up against a Lynel in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Back-flip when the Lynel swipes, and side-hop when he charges. Time it right and the slow-motion will trigger, which is the perfect time to counterattack with Flurry. Add Mighty Simmered Fruit (five mighty bananas cooked) into Link's diet and he will be able to deal better damage against the Lynel in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Lynel will stagger if enough damage is dealt (or by a well-placed arrow on the head). Mount it immediately so Link can attack while on its back. Doing the combos behind the Lynel will not drain the weapon's durability and it is a good strategy to do if Link has limited weapons in his inventory. Nevertheless, it doesn't hurt to bring multiple weapons just to play it safe since 2000 HP is no joke in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Lynel Drops And Rewards In Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Ordinary Lynels drop Lynel Horn, Lynel Hoof, and Lynel Guts, which Link needs to upgrade the Barbarian armor. Lynels can also have 20 Shock or Fire Arrows in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Blue-Maned Lynels drop Mighty Lynel Crusher with 54 attack and Mighty Lynel Sword with 30 attack. White-Maned Lynels drop Savage Lynel Bow (3 x 32 attack), Savage Lynel Crusher (78 attack), Savage Lynel Shield (62 defense), Savage Lynel Spear (30 attack) and Savage Lynel Sword (58 attack).
