In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, there are myriad important mechanics and concepts that the game never explains outright.

With so many veiled secrets, we've compiled 14 useful things to know to help you on your journey.
Be wary, there are potential spoilers ahead. Check back often as we update this feature with more secrets.
