Use the mitts on a cave just north of where you enter Mount Crenel's Base. All these fusions will make secret caves in trees appear in North Hyrule Field. Enter the cave and press the switches to make another ladder appear. Climb down the ladder to the large chest with the Magic Boomerang.

She will give you another quiver to hold 99 arrows. LIGHT ARROW- You must fuse a Red Kinstone with Stranger in the yellow roofed house in Hyrule Town early in the game. This makes a portal appear in South Hyrule Field. Run over to it to warp to a place you havent seen before. Walk up a flight or so of stairs to find an old man with a blue ghost swirling around him. Suck the ghost up with the Gust Jar to rid him of it. Talk to the man to get a reward. Later in the game you will return to this place as it is on the Cloud Tops.

SHIELD UPGRADES SMALL SHIELD- At the very beginning of the game, Princess Zelda wins a drawing in Hyrule Town. She picks the shield and gives it to you to keep. It is the first item of the game. You can also buy one at Rems store for 30 Rupees. I dont know show someone could possibly lose one though . . . MIRROR SHIELD- To get this amazing shield, you must do several things. After you obtain the Four Sword and get the final bottle inside the Goron cave in Lon Lon Ranch, fuse Kinstones with the Goron standing to the far right. This makes a giant Goron appear at Veil Falls. You can talk to him, but he says to come back after you accomplish a major feat. This major feat is beating the game. Go once and defeat Vaati, then return back to the Goron at Veil Falls. He notices your Small Shield, and since Gorons eat that type of metal, he asks to eat it. Allow him to eat it. You will now have no shield. For this to work, you cannot go to the store and buy one. Now go beat Vaati again without a shield. After beating the game again, so and talk to the large Goron and he spits out the Mirror Shield. After you get it and think it is crap, block and Octoroks rock that he fires at you and see what happens. SWORD UPGRADES SMITHS SWORD- This is the first sword that is given to you by Smith after Vaati turns Zelda to stone. It is small and weak, but it does the job for now. WHITE SWORD- This is the sword after Melari forges the Picori Blade back to normal. It deals better damage than the Smiths Sword. WHITE SWORD (TWO ELEMENTS)- This is the sword after you fuse the Earth Element and the Fire Element into the White Sword at the Elemental Sanctuary. This sword allows you to split into two Links! WHITE SWORD (THREE ELEMENTS)- This is the sword with the Earth, Fire, and Water Elements infused in it after you sneak into the Elemental Sanctuary. You can now summon three Links! FOUR SWORD- After you obtain the Wind Element, return to the Elemental Sanctuary and fuse in the Element. This gives you the golden Four Sword. Now you can summon four Links and do a spin attack to fire a beam that turn people that are stone, back to normal. This is the strongest sword in the game. BOTTLE UPGRADES BOTTLE #1- The first bottle is required to beat the game. Go down the ladder in the north part of the Trilby Highlands and bomb the wall to the right to find a Business Scrub.

BOTTLE #3- Turn Minish in the Milk Bar in Hyrule Town and climb up next to the book case to climb across the rafter to go into Rems store as a Minish. Grow back to normal size and pick up the bottle. He says its not for sale and that it is his dog food. He asks you to give it to his dog in Lake Hylia. Go over to his house in Lake Hylia and dump in the food. You get to keep the bottle. BOTTLE #4- Summon all of the Gorons to the cave in Lon Lon Ranch by way of Mysterious Walls Kinstone fusions and a farmer Kinstone fusion.
