How to Get the Ice Arrows: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- All The Basics: If you’re one of those people who are actually still trying to figure out how to get those illusive Ice Arrows. Well, you get them in the Gerudo Training Ground. It may seem easy, complete the tasks, solve the maze, but I found it to be quite tricky. If you’re having trouble with this task you’ve found the right guide. Oh, and for those people who are still wondering what’s so great about Ice Arrows, here’s the scoop. You know those Blue Tektites in Lake Hylia, with normal arrows, Fire Arrows, and even Light Arrows, they take two shots to down, but with Ice Arrows, you shoot them once and they’ll freeze over with ice cubes surrounding them. After they defrost, they fall apart and die, like they would when you kill them, and it doesn’t even take two hits. Now, I am finally going to tell you the steps to getting the Ice Arrows: The Central and Front Rooms: 1. First, take the door to your left once you enter the Gerudo Training Ground. (Refer to “The Left Door Rooms” for directions on how to get past the tasks in the rooms behind the left door). 2. Once you complete the tasks behind the left door in the central rooms, continue on to the rooms behind the door to your right. Refer to “The Right Door Rooms” for directions on how to get past the tasks in all the rooms behind the right door). 3. After you have collected all seven (7) small keys from the rooms behind the left and right doors, you can enter the door straight ahead of you once you enter the Training Grounds. 4. Once you have entered the front room, you will be in a maze of cages, where choosing the correct door to take first is the key. To make it to the prize of the Gerudo, take the door to your left. Then, continue entering the door at the end of you current path until you reach a big chest. On your way to the big chest, you can open the small chests, but all they basically contain are rupees. Once you open the big chest, you will finally receive the Gerudo’s treasure, the Ice Arrows!!! The Left Door Rooms: 1. When you enter the first of the “left door rooms”, you will be prompted to defeat all the enemies in the room in a limited time. Once you complete this task, a small chest will drop down onto a patch of red carpet. Collect the small key within the chest and continue onto the next room. 2. In the next room, you must collect the five (5) silver rupees within the time limit. There’s not much advice I can give you for this very difficult room, except for watch out for boulders!!! When you collect all the silver rupees, use your longshot on the target near the next door to reach it without getting set on fire. Enter the door and continue on to the next tedious task. 3. In the room #3, when you attempt to explore, some Wolfos and an Ice Wolfos will pop out of nowhere and challenge you. Once you defeat them, push the massive crested block forward using the Silver or Golden Gauntlets to push it into a hole in the floor to reveal a barred door. Next, use the Megaton Hammer to destroy the fake door. Now, Use the Lens of Truth and look above the place where the fake door used to be and you will discover a false wall with a hookshot target behind it. Use your longshot to get into the small cave and discover another door and a floor switch. Step on the floor switch to raise the bars over the door and enter the door that was behind the large crested block (the door in the small cave is not used to get the Ice Arrows, although it did help me choose my path to get to the Ice Arrows). Don’t forget to open the chest on your way out of this room, I forgot what’s in it, but it might be a small key that is needed to complete the maze of cages. 4. In the final room, there are three (3) Like-Likes that you must defeat. Once you defeat them, open the chest closest to the door you entered through (The other two chests simply contain rupees). 5. Now, you have all the keys you can acquire in the rooms behind the left door and you can continue onto the “Right Door Rooms” section of my How to get the Ice Arrows article in my submission. Right Door Rooms: 1. When you enter the first of the “Left Doors Room”, you are prompted to defeat all the enemies in the room within a time limit. Do just that, but watch out for the walls, when you get close to them, a barrier of fire that can burn you raises. Once you complete the task, collect the small key from the chest that dropped down into the center of the room onto a patch of red carpet. When you have gotten the small key, go through the door with a crest above it and into the next room. 2. In the second room, that we’ll call the “Lava Room”, you must collect five (5) silver rupees once again. The Hover Boots may help you collect a majority of the silver rupees here. When you’re ready to collect the silver rupee inside the ring of fire, go over to the platform with the floor switch on it. Then, when Navi turns green when you’re facing out toward the lava, use your Ocarina to play the “Song of Time” and two time blocks will appear. Take off your Hover Boots and equip your Kokiri Boots. Then jump to the nearest block, if you don’t get far enough back when you start running, you won’t make the jump and you’ll fall into the lava. After you’re on the block, climb up to the higher platform and open the chest to collect the small key inside. Now, go back onto the platform with the floor switch and trigger it, lowering the ring of fire around the final silver rupee. Then, quickly jump onto the nearest time block again and then climb up to the platform above. Finally, jump over to the platform where the final rupee is and grab the rupee. Now, quickly use your hookshot on the target above the platform with a door to reach the door, and then enter the door into the next room. 3. Now, in this room, lower the ring of fire around the chest in the center of the room by using the Megaton Hammer to smash the one-story column of blocks near the corner and furthest from a door to reveal a floor switch. Trigger the floor switch and the column of fire temporarily lowers. Collect the small key inside the chest and then smash the only three-story column of blocks in the room to reveal an eye switch. Trigger the eye switch by shooting it with an arrow, and then enter the door without a crest above it. If you want, you can open the other chest in the room. 4. When you move forward to explore the next room, the platform you jump onto starts spinning and you are prompted to blind the eyes of the statue. Do so by shooting each eye with an arrow. If you miss an eye, the statue eyes will reset and any eyes you have blinded will no longer be blind. When you have completed the task, float to the center platform with your Hover Boots or use your hookshot on the chest to pull yourself to it. Then, open the chest to obtain a small key. Use your hookshot on the target above the door you entered through to get back to the rotating platform. Now, return to the “Lava Room” and enter the other door with a torch next to it. 5. In the final room, get next to the time blocks and play the “Song of Time” and the time blocks will disappear. There’s not much I can help you with here, but all the same, I will give you a hint. You will need to switch between your Iron Boots and your Kokiri Boots very often if you have trouble collecting silver rupees in a swirling pool of water. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 02. The Biggoron’s Sword: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Do you hate how the Giant’s Knife always breaks? Then the Biggoron’s Sword is for you! It never breaks, but still, like the Giant’s Knife, does double (2x) the damage of the Master Sword. Remember, you can’t use a shield with the Biggoron’s Sword. Also, it takes a long time to get it, and you should have rescued Epona already, because you can’t use warps to get to where you need to go and she’ll help you make the strict and annoying time limits. Well, here’s how to get it: 1. Go to the Cucco Lady, who wanted you to get all of her cuccos into a pen when you were a child in Kakariko Village, and get an egg of her newest breed of cucoo, the Pocket Cucco. 2. To make the Pocket Cucco happy once it hatches; find the house in the same village you got the cucco in where Talon is sleeping. Wake him up with the cucco and take it back to the Cucco Lady. 3. When you give it to her, she’ll be so happy at the job you did, that you will get another chicken, named Cojiro, to take care of. 4. Take it to the Carpenter Boss’s Son, who is sleeping at the base of the stump in the Lost Woods where the lone Skull Kid that gave you a Piece of Heart as a kid for playing “Saria’s Song” to him. Then wake him up with it and he will ask you to take an Odd Mushroom to the old hag in Kakariko Village. (THERE IS A TIME LIMIT!!!) 5. Go back to Kakariko Village, YES AGAIN, and give the Odd Mushroom to the old hag, who will sell you an Ultimate Potion, in the building behind the Potion Shop. She will then give you an Odd Potion. 6. Take the Odd Potion back to the stump where the Carpenter Boss’s Son was and a Kokiri girl will take his place. Show her the Odd Potion and she will confiscate it, giving you the Poacher’s Saw in return. 7. Take the Poacher’s Saw to the Carpenter Boss in Gerudo Valley and he’ll give you his Broken Goron’s Sword. 8. Show the Broken Goron’s Sword to Biggoron at the top of Death Mountain and he’ll offer to fix it and give you a prescription. 9. Take the prescription to King Zora, now covered in Red Ice that melts on contact with Blue Fire, which you can buy at most Potion Shops and may be found in the Ice Cavern. After you show it to him, he’ll give you and Eyeball Frog. (YOU HAVE A TIME LIMIT!!!) 10. Take this to the scientist in Lake Hylia, and he’ll make you the World’s Finest Eye Drops. Take them to Biggoron at the top of Death Mountain. (THERE’S A TIME LIMIT!!!) 11. Give the Claim Check to Biggoron and he’ll give you a Claim Check and to wait three (3) days and then come back to get the Biggoron’s Sword. You can either wait out three days normally, or go inside Death Mountain and play the “Sun’s Song” six (6) times. After you come back and talk to him again, you’ll have the Biggoron’s Sword in your inventory!!! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 03. Getting Epona =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 1. To get Epona, go to Lon Lon Ranch during the day and pay ten (10) rupees to Ingo so you can ride a horse. 2. Play “Epona’s Song” and mount her. Then jump over each of the two fences inside the pen and you will get your rupees back. 3. When your time runs out. Go back to Ingo and ride Epona again, getting your rupees back by jumping over the small fences. This time, when you’ve gotten your rupees back, if you wanted to, talk to Ingo while riding Epona and challenge him to a race. He will bet fifty (50) rupees that he will win. 4. If you beat him, he will challenge you to another race, in which if you win, he’ll give you Epona. 5. Once you beat him in the second race, he’ll lock you in. But don’t sweat. You can ride Epona almost anywhere in Hyrule, still. You just have to jump one of the brown fences by the building near the back of the ranch. 6. Finally, you’ll have Epona freed and you will be able to ride her anywhere in Hyrule Field. That includes Lake Hylia and Lon Lon Ranch as well. Don’t worry about coming back to Lon Lon Ranch, Ingo will be back to normal and he won’t be mean anymore.
