Good way to get bows?

  1. I'm doing a lot of hunting recently to get a lot of rupees, but it's kind of hard when my bows break after 10 minutes. Are there any good ways to get decent bows on a regular basis to combat this? I'm fairly early in the game, I'm at the point where I'll soon be going up against Vah Rudania, which is my second Divine Beast to beat after Vah Ruta

  1. Well, the best way to get rupees is to sell luminous gems and you only need bombs to get those. So, apart from actually beating enemies with decent bows, you could hunt down spots for the luminous stones and any others along the way. There is definitely no need to grind anything as if you vary your gameplay enough, you will come across many ways to make money, such as selling food even. The Divine Beasts are not essential to get done as early as possible either...there are plenty of other quests to do also. Soon you will get used to using swords and melee weapons to get enemies just as easily as bows...don't back out of a fight unless you know you won't win it yet. You have plenty of saving opportunities to retry any failures.

  1. I think the best way to go about it is to just invest time in gathering bows from enemy camps in areas you have already explored (go for the ones within your fighting range). Earning rupees is fine and all but it can be a bit time consuming unless you're willing to do side questions for gems and luminous stones in anyways.

  2. only get 500 for a diamond whereas you will get 700 for selling the stones, so it's only worthwhile the first time when he gives you two! If you actually need diamonds, then that's a different matter.

  3. There is a respawnable royal bow in a ruin right by the gerudo tower go open this chest a couple of times using the blood moons and you'll have more then enough bows to last you till they start dropping every 10 seconds.

  4. Enemy camps are the best way to get bows efficiently and quickly. Another good place to find bows is at towns or ruins, where you can find weapons laying around. If you want to get the best bows, fight lynels. They will drop some serious bows. Another method is fighting hinoxes, as they will wear weapons as necklaces. Or you can even fight yiga soldiers, as some carry bows. Moldugas can carry chests inside them that, when killed, can contain bows. These are all (mostly) easy ways to find bows. Or guardian scouts in shrines. Just fight enemies and mini-bosses whenever possible, and you are sure to find plenty of bows. Never pass up a good fight. If you are struggling to find enemy camps, travel more on foot or on horseback.

  6. One of the best ways to earn rupees is the bowling game in the mountains.
    Build up Link by completing shrines, choose hearts first then stamina vessels.

  7. Instead of selling your luminous stones collect 10 and go to Zora's domain and near the entrance there will be a guy who will give you a diamond (two if its your first time) you can do this as many times as you'd like. its way more efficient.

  8. I mean just explore. You'll find them in enemy camps and shrines quite often. You'll start to find good ones often as you progress through the game. Oh and it's a lot easier to get a lot of rupees from selling gems cause they're worth much more than meat, don't really have any use to you so it's easy to part with them, and you can just use bombs which you've got an unlimited amount of.
