The Yiga clan fucked me up when we first met because the guy looked like a regular traveler, then said he's going to kill me. Before I could properly react I was dead and he was gone when I respawned.
Now they only get one or two hits on me, depending on landscape, if they hit me at all. They want to send me where I sent Kouga.
Something really cool:
I was up on one of the towers at Lake Hylia, waiting for Farosh. It turns into a lightning storm, so I start changing to wooden gear. Suddenly, I see sparks in front of me. WTF? There's literally nothing there.
Huge lightning strike. Windcleaver falls at my feet.
One of the Yiga sword guys was teleporting in to stab me and got struck by lightning and died. I got a free sword.
