I have been trying to get to Hyrule castle town (for unexplainable reasons), but every time I get killed by guardians. They seem to spawn more nearby, and I can't get the map from the tower! What is the fastest way to get to Hyrule castle town? If possible, I would like to not deal with touching any guardians. What I need:

  • A path that won't take me by guardians but is semi-optimized
  • Horse-friendly (optional)
  • Can you clarify a bit by what you are looking for? Asking for the absolute fastest route would probably mean running directly past guardians. Asking for a route where you dont meet any guardians probably wont be the fastest. Also do you mean by walking? Do you plan to use a horse? Would you prefer to fly in? I just feel like this question is too broad and could illicit opinion based answers.

  • So Im writing this a comment because I havent tested it and dont plan to but looking at the map.. could you head west out of the tower until you hit the river just before Hyrule fields, then go north along the river until you reach the mountains on the east side of the castle town, then maybe just fly in? Its been a while since I played this and I dont remember much but IIRC the castle town is swarming with guardians as well. If you are trying to avoid them castle town might not be the place to go. Anyways just an idea, best of luck in your adventure!

  • If you could post that as an answer, ill test it on my run. Jan 8 '21 at 17:47

To better illustrate what I said in my comment to the question, I decided to write an answer. Ideally, your route would have you avoid Hyrule Fields altogether because that's where a lot of guardians like to roam. So thinking about that, what I would propose is a route similar to this.

enter image description here

Basically I would head out of the tower and get myself to be on the mountain range directly east of Castle Town. The yellow line means that I would then attempt to fly in to the north-east corner of the town. I don't remember if there are guardians there or not so you would have to watch and see. I also don't know what kind of stamina you have but I imagine with enough food/potions it could be done. If the flying is not possible, an alternative suggestion would be to get into the water north of the north-eastern part of town and try to climb up the cliff to it. Neither of these ideas have been tested or optimized and there is a probably a better solution, but one thing I loved about this game is you don't have to take the obvious route to get somewhere. James Bond that ish and get creative with it.

  • Thanks! Ill try this out and see how it goes. Jan 8 '21 at 19:07
