A Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild player reached the Beast Vah Medoh through non-traditional means and was sadly not turned away for doing so.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildIts own open world design has spawned countless exploits and chain breakers since its release in 2017. However, 5 years later, and players are still making new discoveries in the game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with someone finding a way to approach the Beast Vah Medoh without Rito’s assistance.
While there is no predetermined order in which to conquer them, for most players, Vah Medoh is one of the last Divine Beasts to be conquered. Vah Medoh is seen from many places in Hyrule, as it flies around in a large circle above Rito Village in the northwest corner of the map, harassing people below. Finally, when players actually make it to Vah Medoh, they’ll be treated to one of the best dungeons in the game, as they must control the Beast’s yard to move obstacles and open doors. It is the only Divine Beast that flies in the air, and is practically inaccessible by conventional means.
Reddit user DudeBroGuyManSirPal successfully reached Vah Medoh without performing the main quest, although the results were a bit disappointing. In the posted video Breath of the Wild subreddit, DudeBro attach the Octo Balloon to the tree trunk, ride it into the lower atmosphere, and when they reach the right height of Vah Medoh, glide to the Divine Beast. Unfortunately, while DudeBro actually made it to Vah Medoh, there was no collision detection on this version of it, and so they fell over the wing and returned to Hyrule below. Although the post was titled “Game Developers Aren’t Ready for This”, it looks like they did.
Interestingly, as DudeBro’s video shows, this version of Vah Medoh is still simulated quite intricately even though players will probably never get to see it up close like in this video. One might expect the underside of Vah Medoh’s wings and perhaps head to be detailed, but intricate ancient stone pillars and carvings on Vah Medoh’s wings can also be seen here. Then it seems that when the real player Vah Medoh dungeon that it gives a more detailed version of the Beast because when DudeBro cuts through this, no actual stages are seen.
It’s a pity that DudeBro’s creativity (and perhaps also their patience) was not met in this case. The Octo Balloons don’t lift too much, and considering the edit in the video from when DudeBro’s climb first began, they’ve probably been waiting a long time. Maybe if DudeBro used it as a crate or a log they could get to Vah Medoh faster. Either way, this is still a succinct Breath of the Wild discover anyway.
