|I think if I could repair stuff, I'd end up using the same stuff for the entire game. And I like that the game basically forces you to mix it up, even though I can definitely understand why others might find that frustrating.|

With most open worlders you get stronger as you progress. With this I never felt over powered even after getting the best gear, partly due to that mechanic. Whether that's a good or bad thing is personal preference I guess.

But getting the beat gear is annoying because you know you will lose it. I end up holding onto it and just using boko clubs and spears over and over.
There are some good weapons that appear in the world and can be picked up multiple times. Think there is one in Zelda’s room in the castle and the castle armoury is also full of high tier weapons.
There aren't any unique weapons aside from the Master Sword, so there's no real reason to hang onto or hoard anything.
Can you reforge the Zora spears?
I'm pretty sure you can. Might need some special materials for it or something.

You can reforge all the champion weapons. Also, weapons found in the wild respawn after a blood moon so you can go back and pick up that great frostblade etc. Plus, you can redo the shrines so you can get the ancient weapons and shields over and over in the tests of strength against the guardians.
That said, I've never minded the weapons breaking. I just use what I have and improvise. I'll crush a moblin with a metal box if I have to.

I always enjoyed the mechanic as it made me change weapons depending on what I was fighting.
BotW is the only open world game that I've played through multiple times.

I just started playing this two days ago. Some idle observations
I suck at bore hunting
I'm quite crap at fighting
The world has been a delight to explore so far
The way they've built in features to encourage learning is truly inspiring (e.g., when you exit one of the early shrines, there's always something right in front of you where you can use your new power)
The fetch quest for the warm shirt is a dud for noon English speakers. Both my kids had no idea you could get clothes to help you walk in the snow that early in the game. They just brought Aton of food.
It feels very Zelda despite being radically different from any other Zelda game I've played
I'm sorry if losing interest now that I'm off the Plateau

I still haven't done all the master trials. Managed the first one by being very patient and taking my time, but the dread of losing all your progress really took a toll. I got the master sword up to 40 damage with the first one, but I really want to do the other 2 to get it to 60.
But some of the rooms - ah man. Flying around in a room with no floor, hardly any weapons and having to pin point some arrows to drop a bomb on a guardians head in mid air, all the while knowing that if you fuck it up then it's back to the start again, just fills me with dread!
