    Found a glitch to get max arrows. Not fire, bomb, ancient or any other kind of arrow. Just regular arrows.

    Look at this youtube video to find the exact location of where to get this glitch


    On the video it says that you need to get the flying divine beast. But that's not the case. You can do it without any fancy tricks. All you have to do is find the 3 bobokins and then move the camera directly overhead. No need to do the jump as was suggested on the video. After you reset the camera to the top looking down just let the arrows pile up around you and press A a few times to collect the arrows. Dont let it go on too long or the arrows stop accumulating. Moving around a bit is ok to collect the arrows behind you and a bit further off but be aware that while moving you're liable to get hit by arrows but as soon as you stop moving the arrows start piling up at your feet again.

    It is possible that this works with any set of bobokins on horseback that have only arrows but I haven't tested it.

    Need these for the Zora dungeon - yes, I suck at archery and they are ridiculously expensive in the villages...

    Archery is amazingly easy to do with the gamepad. I was playing with the pro controller for a while and it does very good but archery with the gamepad is unbeatably fun.

    PS: I got about 700 arrows using this trick and still have about 300 left and I've been very generous with them. Expending them at will and without concern. Rarely stopping to pick them up.

    I thought about doing this but never really had problems keeping arrows.

    Regular arrows aren't hard enough to find to make this necessary.
    However, I would be interested in seeing this performed with a mob that shoots Shock, Fire, Ice or Bomb arrows. Those are really expensive in shops and only available in highly limited amounts, especially the bomb arrows which are crazy expensive.

    So obscuring the camera effects enemies ability to aim or attack? How bad can problems be for a game this advanced? I seen better AI in Super smash bros melee..... I mean Super smash bros for 3ds/wiiu than this. :wtf:

    Next time i fight enemies i'm just gonna aim the camera away and stand there with a photo of naked link with text saying SWAG!!!!! :creep:

    Revali's gale isn't needed BTW. You can use a fire arrow for the updraft or any hang glider landing will do it.

    They hit you once no matter what like every 10 minutes or so but it's not enough to put you in danger.

    North of skull lake there are a band of bobokins on a tree house camp. They shoot bomb arrows. They can be harvested. There is a requirement though. It needs to be raining. If it isn't raining then the arrows will explode on impact and... No arrows. The way to tell if an arrow will explode is when the bobokin strings his bow if the tip flares then the arrow will explode. Else no explosion. If it is raining then they will accumulate. One of the bobokins will hit you, not sure what the deal is but I think he's under the tree enough that he can get his arrows to explode. I'd suggest taking him out. Killing him is necessary, just hit him with your arrow and knock him off the tree house camp. He's the farthest one in the back of the tree.

    Regardless. Stay far enough away and light a camp. Sit and wait till it rains. When it does go close and let them shoot at you. I have not been able to get no hit location but the arrows keep coming and with the rain comes wind and with the wind the arrows roll away from you. So movement is a must, really. Collect them as much as you want. I have noticed that after a while, say 100 or so arrows into this, they turn into regular arrows. That's when I leave the place.

    I understand location is important. Since I dont have an exact location screen cap I'll say it as best I can. It is northeast of gut check rock and north-northeast of skull lake, not at the bottom of the canyon. In the mountains. I'll try to add a screen grab of the map location highlighted. If you stand at gut check rock and look at the shrine at skull lake you can easily scope out the location of the enemy camp, it is the only tree north of skull lake.

    No jumping is necessary at all for harvesting the (regular) arrows. Move the camera location to the top of Link's head, looking straight down and let the arrows pile up.
