My main point was.. is there anything I should know about now lol? Cus this all seems pretty straight forward except for the golden age one, plus I don't see any missables either.

it's mostly nothing after first Agahnim. Other than some exceptions, you can jus get the magic cape and become nearly invincible.

There are many achievements for optional items, but none for the red mail and golden shield. I forgot to pick the red mail in my playthrough, but would be fun to have them added in a future revision. Magic cape trivializes all damageless dark world boss fights. Overall seems like a solid set for this game, used it to check if my setup was working properly :)
