Well they aren't if you have 5 hearts and all u have is a mop but now that I finished Botw but not completely finished cause I skipped Urbosa,Now I have a full row of hearts plus one and I have a lot of Royal weapons and shields I spent way too much time collecting them and I can't tell you all the times I died because of a lynel so when I went to face the normal one in the Zora domain I was actually scared for my life. So scared I went and killed 10 guardians with a potlid but I was still scared so I put on the Phantom armor. Guess wut the lynel hit me one time only. Im still terrified of lynels but not so much the normal ones. After that I went to Akkala and tried to get to the shrine of Skull lake and I almost ran into a lynel luckily I'm so good at getting scared that It didn't even see me. It had the question mark tho. I was wearing majora's mask so I knew I could stay a bit but 2 Stalmoblins were trailing behind me so I knew I was outnumbered If the Lynel attacked me. After that and a few days of encouragement I went and faced Ganon and won. Also a good tip to get rich is kill silver books trust me!
