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:

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.

  7. how do you get the biggorons sword

  8. ohh yeah go to the spirit temple if you know how then go through all the kids stuff to do then you get it to use as an adult.

  9. yoy get the silver gauntlets when u enter the spirit temple, but u have to be a child

  10. I remember the golden gontlets but i dint remember where the silver ones are.

  11. how do u get silver guantlets?

  12. hey master of zelda- when he gannondorf does his 6 beam attack it is better to do the charge attack of yours and right before it hits you you let it go and they will hit them, also when he earthquakes just dont be on the front edge most of the time and you will already be in position to fight him. also when fighting gannon use the biggorons sword and r through his legs instesad of shooting him. I also found its sometimes better not to lock on to his tail.

    JAK- you go over tothe place where the little fences and plants are then crawl through a hole and look for sword.

  13. How do you find the sword?

  14. you go into the well as a kid peanut.

  15. the master of zelda // February 9, 2008 at 11:12 pm // Reply

    rayquaza like what anonymous said but here r a few more tips- when u hit him with the ball of light shoot a light arrow at him,then run 2 him and attack him with your sword,when he gets up run to 1 of the corners of the room because of his earthquake attack, keep on doing that and if you need magic or health drop down to the floor below,after awhile he’ll launch six beams of light that attack,2 dodge those just run to another corner,when he finally dies he brings his castle with him then u must escape with zelda, when u start to fite ganon he knocks your master sword away,so get the hammer or biggoron’s sword,use navi 2 lock on 2 his tail and hit it then fire at him with your light arrows,then i think u have 2 hit him with your sword(it’s been awhile since i faut him)your welcome and if you need anymore help just ask me
