  1. there is a big crystal on its head. Get to the ttop of his head by throwing a sheikah bomb at his arms. then he will collapse and that will be your time to climb on him and attack. you can also snipe his giant crystal if you use a bow and arrow. if you do, he will collapse again. If you just spam bows at him. it makes it 2 times easier. Good Luck!

  2. This and all subsequent Taluses with head crystals are much easier to dispatch by charging your weapon once on the head. Especially useful are the axes. Bombs work on the crystal as well as the arms on the easier ones.

  3. Do note that not all talus's have their crystals in the same spot. Some have them more behind them.

  1. I'm not sure which forest you're talking about, but all taluses (tali?) can be defeated by climbing on their back, getting to the top, and hitting the crystal. If the crystal is more on their back and not on the head, shoot it or use remote bombs. When smacking their head crystals, try to use 2 handed weapons (specifically goron weapons such as boulder breaker.) There are also 2 secondary types of talus, frost and igneo. Frost taluses can be defeated by shooting their bodies with flame arrows or hitting them with elemental fire weapons to warm them up, otherwise you'll freeze once touching them. Then simply repeat the normal process. For igneo taluses, do the same thing as the frost taluses but instead of flame arrows or weapons, use ice arrows or weapons.

  2. The Stone Talus in the forest on the Great Plateau near the beginning of the game can be beaten by climbing onto it's back and attacking the ore deposit sticking out of it. I usually grab the Iron Sledgehammer by the shrine in the southeast corner of the plateau. It's on a ledge sticking out over the shrine. When fighting the Talus, toss a bomb to destroy its arm. This stuns the Talus and gives you an opportunity to climb on it's back. With the Iron Sledgehammer, start a charged attack on his weak spot and just before you run out of stamina, end the attack. This will stun it again. DO NOT stay on his back. The Talus will shake you off when he gets back up after this. Then just rinse and repeat until dead.

    Other Taluses later in the game have the ore deposit further down on their backs. I find the easiest way to beat them is to toss a bomb to destroy both their arms then toss bombs continuously to hit their ore deposit. Timing it well, the Talus will continue getting stunned over again and you can beat it in a couple minutes. The bomb+ works best as it does slightly more damage and recharges faster.

  3. Attack its weak point for massive damage.
    No, seriously. The game even shows a big arrow pointing at it.

  4. Just grab a sledgehammer and run around to his back avoiding attacks and climb up. Mash away at the crystal on top. Eventually you may get thrown off, just rinse and repeat. Bombing the arms will stun, but isn't entirely necessary.
