  1. Shrine completion is unrelated to modifiers - modifiers basically depend on the amount and variety of enemies you've slain. Try taking down a lot of Main Quest bosses and Lynels to get your modifier levels really high, and before you check the Hylian Shield chest make sure you save your game in case it doesn't have what you want.

  2. is there a reason to get modifiers on the H Shield other then for bragging rights? it's nearly unbreakable and does not really take damage?

  3. There's not much reason to besides bragging rights, it would be more helpful to get it earlier in a playthrough.

  4. It's very breakable, I broke two of the suckers just from pretty casual play!

  5. The keyword is "nearly", as you know it's absurdly durable and you can easily buy another one. If anything, the fact that you can break Hylian Shields means that it's less worth it to wait for a modifier because you can break it and lose that modifier forever anyway.

  1. Just be aware that there's a hidden counter that increments by slaying up to 10 of each Mid-Boss & enemy & each tier of enemy except red & blue Bokoblin, the base-tier LizalFos, & Stal (skeleton) enemies.
    It's going to take quite a few Blood Moons & many, many Lynels, Molduga & others before reaching Silver/Gold Lynel tier, then a few Moons of slaughtering after that before the Hylian Shield gains its 1st/lowest modifier.
    Good luck.
