It's actually pretty obvious. Also you've played botw how do you not know how to get a stick they're everywhere.
I've never seen someone have so many opinions about a game without even finishing the tutorial section. I'm all for you sharing your opinions but maybe actually progress past the tutorial before talking anymore about it?
I just assumed that you could make sticks out of trees with the opened up crafting, which would make sense. More so than triangular shaped rocks turning into axe heads. But I found sticks and triangular rocks and can cut trees again. They're not everywhere, they do drop from trees when you cut them down. Chicken egg problem ;) The game seems to remember the resources you picked up (on Sky island) but not the stuff you made. All the cut down trees are back, but no apples nor sticks from those anymore.
Not my design that the tutorial takes as long as HZD's 'tutorial' area. I don't have that much time to play so still wandering around on Sky Island. And yes, I do have opinions on game's opening sections, the first impressions that are supposed to entice you to keep playing. So far, just like HZD, it's failing at that. BotW's 'tutorial' was much more engaging.
Fair point. Man it was obvious about the axe heads. You literally just have to look at the axe heads on the axes the game gives you to figure that out. There are hundreds of sticks in the opening area alone, I think resources return after blood moons.
From what you've been saying you've spent most of your time living out a weird lumberjack fetish rather than finishing the tutorial which isn't even particularly long, could probably blast through the tutorial in less than an hour if you don't bother exploring much. I actually think the tutorial is the one aspect that this game is weaker than BotW, still a great tutorial, just doesn't quite beat BotW's, which is probably among the greatest tutorials I've ever played. I never said you shouldn't share your opinion on the opening but you've probably made at least 30 or 40 comments about this game on this site which is ridiculous for a game that you haven't even passed the tutorial in. How many hours have you spent in the opening section?
