    Since the 1.1.2 patch is there another way to farm arrows besides getting the 20 then saving and loading? Or is there a way to delete the update data and not lose any save data because it downloaded even though I have auto updates off.

    even if you delete the update data the game will actually never let you start it back up unless you redownload the update. For physical games tho idk if you can play after you delete the update in the digital version

    It's likely the same for both retail and digital versions. I presume that when you save your progress, the current update version number you have installed also gets stored somewhere in your save file. When loading a game, the system checks the update version in your save against the update version currently installed on your system and refuses to start up if the installed patch version is lower than your save version. This is because new content may be released in future updates and prevents a user from attempting to load saved new content when the update patch is missing.

    I farm for rupees with the snow bowling method in 5 minutes, and then buy all the arrows from every store. I get around 200 arrows from that, enough for me, unless you're bad at aiming.

    A good way to farm arrows is to go here http://i.imgur.com/cUYeNWo.png and fight six goblins who ride on horseback with bows. They shoot an endless stream of arrows which you just need to dodge and pick up. Once you have enough just teleport out the area. Closest stable is Tabantha Bridge Stables, and closest shrin is the Shae Loya shrine. I got about 100 in like 5 minutes, you'll need to dodge pretty well because with all 6 it can be a slight challenge.

    Welp, the purpose of this thread is to find a method other than that, because, well, it's been patched... :rofl:

    I find Dragon's Horn farming the fastest and most effective way to farm rupees since one Horn sells for 300 rupees and is never a miss if you have a great spot, some fire wood and flame sword.

    The snowbowling method gives you around 1000 rupees a minute.

    The best way to do it with minimal fail is by dropping the snowball slightly towards the right behind of the snow guy.

    Arrow Farming still works, just limited to 20 arrows at a time. A save & load lets you pick up more.

    And If you look up the Farosh farming the one at the lake on the south of the map you get a spawn/horn grab every 30 seconds, it's far more lucrative than snowling even though it's not bad.

    I just used a N^2. I have all the Zelda Amiibos loaded onto it, and cycle though it every day. I get lots of bomb, shock, fire, and ice arrows that way (and hundreds of normal arrows)

    @Bladexdsl I'm betting as well someone reports this one asap to Ninti! very good though, nice find @McWhiters9511 . This was published on the 16th, yesterday bet it gets a patch real soon cause this is very easy to farm for arrows I think maybe the easiest way so far I have noticed :)

    ooh, I have just found another arrow trick similar too farming on patch v1.1.2 while I was looking through youtube. Go arrow farming, GO!!!
