The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

How do you get to the water temple?

Games Guru: It’s complicated, especially on the original game. Basically, you have to change the water level a lot and constantly put on and take off your Iron Boots. Keep the Zora Tunic on to stop from drowning. To help, here’s a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ1L0ZhzGqo

I can’t find the bomb bag to use on Death Mountain because the level I am on is Death Mountain. I need the bomb bag to blow up the rock that blocks the way to Dodongos Cavern so I can find Goron’s bracelet. Can you help me?

Games Guru: Here’s how to get a bomb bag. As a kid, you have to play the Bombchu game in the Hyrule Market. Play it a second time and win, and you’ll get the bomb bag, which can hold up to 30 bombs.

Where do you find the sword in the Deku Tree?

Games Guru: You should have a sword before entering the Deku Tree. You do get a slingshot in that tree. Have you checked for swords in the caves of the Kokiri Forest?

How do I get my bow in the forest temple? And are there any codes of any sort for this game?

Games Guru: There are many, many secrets in this game, but no code that I am aware of. There are hidden stores, including one in Gannon’s tower, places in which you can load up on Rupees or even collect gold skultullahs, but nothing so easy as a code.

About the fairy bow: Getting the bow is quite straightforward. As you explore the temple, you will enter a room in which you are attacked by a stalfos, a skeleton guard. Beat that stalfos and two more will appear. Beat them too slowly and they will simply reappear until you beat them in a set time. Beat them within the time limit, and a chest will appear. The bow is in that chest.

Do you have any tips on beating the Water Temple boss?

Games Guru: Having explored the HUGE Water Temple and survived your battle with Dark Link, your ultimate fight will be with a pesky water creature. Making this even more difficult, you fight it while jumping from pillar to pillar in a room filled with water.

Stay on the outer pillars. The key to victory is to keep moving so the creature can’t hit you, and keep your eyes open for it to give you an opening after its slow but powerful attacks. Using the Longshot, target its heart, which is visible in its water tentacles. Shoot it, pull it out and spin attack it with your sword, then keep moving.

You will need to repeat this process a few times, but I predict you will emerge from this battle swimmingly.

After I beat the Water Temple, how do I get into the Shadow Temple?

Games Guru: Congratulations on beating the Water Temple. Most people who quit this game stop during the lengthy Water Temple portion. Play the “Nocturne of Shadow” to warp to the Shadow Temple. Now go down the stairs, stand in the middle of the room and use Din’s Fire to light all the torches. If you hit all the torches, the door to the temple will open.

Where do I find the Master Sword and how do I get it?

Games Guru: The Master Sword is in the Temple of Time. Use the Ocarina to play the Song of Time to enter the Temple of Time. Once you can enter, the sword is yours for the taking—but there are consequences.

    Videogame master, where r u in the dungon? You need to fall through a hole in a chamber after going around and pushing a block into the room to fill a hole where a switch is in the last room.

    Funk dude, you don’t obtain the triforce in this Zelda game. You just have to defeat Gannon.

    Musicman, I have tried this, but it is hard to pull off. If you are near Zelda’s castle as a child, go to the tree before the gate. There play song of storms, a hole appears in the ground. There is a golden Skulita spider. If you kill it with your sling shot, you need to use your bomerang to get the gold head part. You must time this just right. As you walk to the light and get ready to go up, use Z-targeting to use your bomerang to grab it as you step into the light. This counts as a skulita obtained, and the game registers that you forgot to pick it up. Go back down and do it again. You can do this to get all the golden skulita pieces needed.

    Angelic dude, where r u? What r u at?

    Jacobd- I suppose that you said how do you get your horse into the Grado Fortress, but correct me if I am wrong. You must call Epona and speed up and she will leap the gap. After you have completed the fortress and gotten the member’s card, then you can call her again with her song and do the horseback riding practice and other things.

    The Fire Temple is across the rope bridge you have to walk across behind the chair in the Chief’s room. Push his chair aside and walk into the volcano. Walk to the bridge and go down into the temple.

    Musicman, I have beaten this game about thirty times and I have yet to find where the store is. All of the sites I have read say that it is in the castle, usually something about after using the fire arrows to light torches, but I still havent found anything. I will check again, but I have spent hours serching and still havent found it.
