Yet Another Zelda 64 Guide FAQ Compilation: Version 1.4 By Roland Carlos Howdy there. As a respected source on Zelda 64 (i've written the 3 part guide at GameFAQS as well as the Bottom of the Well and Water Temple guides) I recieve a lot of email on Zelda 64. Most of my Zelda 64 emails are questions. Over time, I have a good collection of them. Since they took up too much space in my Part 3, I placed them in a whole new file! Now, look upon the questions of others and learn from them. Table of Contents - Part 4 1. Version Updates 2. Help on E-mailing me Questions 3. Frequently Asked Questions 4. Disclaimer ------------------ 1. Version Updates ------------------ Version 1.4: November 8, 2001 - Minor changes. Version 1.3: January 22, 1999 - Fixed TOC Part Number and added Notice for emails sent January 16, 1999 to January 22, 1999. Version 1.2: January 18, 1999 - Fixed update dates and added more Questions. Version 1.1: January 17, 1999 - Added more to Help on E-mailing me Questions. Version 1: January 15, 1999 - Moved Requested Questions from Part 3 over to here, renamed it Frequently Asked Questions. --------------------------------- 2. Help on E-mailing me Questions --------------------------------- Although I like feedback from my fellow Zelda 64 players, there are some guidelines that I you should follow for maximum feedback. -Make sure your subject states that inside the message, there is something about Zelda 64 (like "Zelda 64 Question" or "Zelda Help"). -If you are asking about help in a certain room, be as detailed as possible (tell what dungeon the room is in, what the room is like, etc.). -Don't email me multiple times with questions, try to place all your questions in one email. However, there are catches to this "free" help. (If I cost money, I'd be so rich...) -If you don't spell good (So, um, howe do I gets da Master Sworde?) or type in all CAPS you have a pretty good chance of getting passed by. -Please, PLEASE, read my guide before asking me questions that are already addressed. I am currently answering reasked questions, but I will soon stop that and leave your E-Mail floating in E-Mail heaven. -Asking stupid questions (How do I enter the Deku Tree?) is very annoying for me to answer and funny for me to read. Try and look at your question(s) before sending it. -Also, PLEASE try and answer your question yourself. Don't just go after the first try, "Oh, I can't do that I have to email.". KEEP TRYING! It is the way to win. And just so you know, this is what I do with my Zelda 64 email. Every time I check my mail, I see at least some emails asking for Zelda 64 help. I read every one at least once and then continue on the 'net, making sure I note down the problems sent to me today. After the questions pile up and I have free time (usually the weekend) I will beginning reading every single Zelda 64 email I recieved from the past deletion to now. Questions that I deem not hard, I place in the mass email I send to all questioneers. The questions that I deem need alot of help, I reply to that person personally. When all the reading is done, I send the mass email to the people and they should find their question answered somewhere. I delete the past messages and get ready for a new flow of questions (and sometimes replies to the mass email). One more thing, A man likes to be thanked for his help. Think about it. ------------------------------- 3. Frequently Questions Section ------------------------------- After I released the guide, many people started emailing me their Zelda questions. This is due partly because I did not put up a "Do not email any questions to author" notice (and I am not planning to). In this section, I will list all the questions I have answered over email and I hope this will somewhat slow the questions coming in. Of course, if there is a question you cannot find in any of the three parts that has been answered, just email me with it! IF YOU NEED HELP ON A CERTAIN ITEM OR AREA, USE THE FIND OPTION WHICH WILL MAKE FINDING THE QUESTION A LOT EASIER. -Okay, I went through the right door in the treasure room of the Gerudo Training Ground. I am short one key. Where is it? Or am I just not gonna get it? To get the 8th key, you must have the Silver Gauntlets (from the Spirit Temple as a child). Go to the room with the Wolfos. Go to the gray block. Grab it (since you now have the Gauntlets) and push it until it falls down. Go into the door revealed. Kill all the Like Likes in the room. Do not open the chest on the ledge. The revealed chest is only a Huge Rupee. Use the Lens of Truth and look for a secret chest in one of the Like Like pits. Open it for the 8th Key! -How do I get a double magic bar? Go to the Death Mountain Cavern using the entrance from Darunia's Room. Go on the other side of the bridge to your right. Use the hammer on the rocks blocking the cave. Go inside the cave. -The Giant's Knife keeps breaking! How can I stop it from doing that? Don't use it. Seriously, it will break after you use it 3-4 times. You cannot stop it. But an alternative is to get the Biggoron's Sword. It is just like the Giant's Knife, but it DOES NOT BREAK! Look in the Hard to Find Items Section for it. -How do I get the second Deku Nut upgrade? Fall into the secret pit in the bushes in the area with two Scrubs in the Lost Woods. Wear a Mask of Truth and see what happens. -Can I beat the marathon guy? There is no way to beat him. He will always win by 1 second. -How come Zora's Domain is frozen after you beat the Water Temple? I have no idea. -When you say first and second upgrade, does it mean there are two ways to upgrade or are they two different ones? They are two entirely different ones. -What are the maxes for all the items (w/ upgrades)? Deku Sticks - 30 -=- Deku Nuts - 40 -=- Deku Seeds - 50 -=- Bombs - 40 Arrows - 50 -=- Bombchu - 50 -I know that the Graveyard Heart is randomly placed, any tips on where it is? Well, I all I can say is that the Heart is only in a Soil spot, not in the rocky area. -How do I get to the fairy on top of Death Mountain? First, you need to get the bombs from Dodongo Cavern. After that, instead of taking the path to Goron City, take the path to the west of the flag. Blow up the boulders that are blocking the way. When you reach the top, you can blow up the rock there to reveal a pit (only containing a cow and some rupees). Keep going north. After some time, the screen will turn red and rocks will start falling. Make sure to equip your Hylian Shield now. Whenever your shadow seems to get bigger, just hold the shield until all the rocks are done hitting you. Keep going north until it stops falling. At the ivy, just Z-Target the Skullwalltulas and fire the Slingshot at them. Climb up until you reach the top (there is the owl there so you can't miss it). Bomb the odd looking wall that is west of the owl. Go into the revealed room. -How come the Skull Kid in the Lost Woods and the Cows won't talk to me? The Skull Kid will not talk to you until you play Saria's Song for him. The Cows will not talk to you until you play Epona's Song for them. You can not talk to the Cows outside of playing the Song. -How do I get the Gerudo Training Pass? Just free all 4 carpenters from Gerudo Fortress. -How do I get the Eyedrops? Give the Old Man at Lake Hylia the Eyeball Frog. -What's up with the 2nd upgrade for the Deku Nuts? I don't know why people are having trouble with this. I guess the only other problem is that you have to it at a certain point, I did mine before turning adult. -Where is the Boomerang? It is the big treasure of Jabu-Jabu's Belly. You can get it in the northeastern most point on the first floor. -Where is the Bow? It is the big treasure of the Forest Temple. You can find it in the circular room east of the first messed up room (the one with the boss key treasure box hanging on the wall). -How do you get past the 1st room in the secret tomb (the Royal Graves at the Kakariko Graveyard)? Kill all the Keese in the room. -How do you turn into a child again after adulthood? Go to the Temple of Time. Go to where the Master Sword was. If you beat the Forest Temple, Sheik will tell you how. -How do I get the bottle at Lake Hylia? You must have a diving depth of 6. To do that, get the Silver Scale. To get the Silver Scale win the Zora rupee collecting game (just west of King Zora's room). -Where is Saria in the Lost Woods? Just go to the sacred meadow and keep going north. -Any tips on finding the running man? He keeps moving so walk around Hyrule field until you see him. -How do I get to the boss room in the Forest Temple? My tip here: You can grab and move the gray pillars. -How come the Big Rolling Goron says to stop bothering him and watch his wild rolling? You need to use a bomb, not a bomb flower to stop him. -Do I need to use a special lure to get the 15-18 pounder? Nope, you can use your regular lure. -Any more keys for the Gerudo Training Room?

It is in the Desert Colossus. -How do I get to the Soft Soil in the Death Mt. Crater? Just play the Bolero of Fire as a child. -How do I get and use bugs? When you see a bug, use a bottle near it.

Go into the big room (looks like a backward C, has secret fire walls and fake doors. From the first entrance jump onto the little platform just ahead of it.

You can use that pillar to jump over to where to the boss is. -Where is the "old hag" in Kakariko Village? Go to the first Potion Shop.

That is where the old hag is. -How do you get into the other part of Gerudo Valley? It is impossible as a child. When you are an adult however, just use Epona to jump across the bridge or use your Hookshot/Longshot on the sign to cross. -In the archery game do you have to be 10/10 or you just need to hit 10?

Use your Slingshot to kill it and the Boomerang to grab the token. -What do you do in the moving blade room in Dodongo Cavern? First, pass by the moving spikes and get to the east part of the room. Move the gray block so that you can climb on top of it so you can get to the ladder. Go up the ladder and jump off the little ledge near the blocked door to the platform with the Bomb Plant. Pick up and throw the Bomb Plant at the blocked door. After the door has been revealed, go through and pass through all the rooms until you get back to moving blade room.
