    Omg I almost panicked when this cheevo didn't pop at first, but then it did after grabbing the hookshot. Phew. XDXD. This was challenging, but fair.

    Well if already the other doesn't seem to work..don't know for this one... I have the habit of Zelda since a very long time but...these two are weird well i mean the first encounter one....

    It's me or the two acheviement for him are very mislanding or well..strange ? Yet this one is almost clear (no damage WHEN you encounter him the second time and strat from)...

    Someone for explain ? the first one who don't look to appear. And what means no arrow/bombs ? for him ? (impossible ?) or for the entire stage ?

    Honestly it's very rare i am confuse but there...

    It says "no bomb arrows" the combo you get when you equip both and press both buttons almost at the same time, making the bomb travel on the arrow, that's a bomb arrow. You can use bombs alone

    Do I have to do the whole dungeon from the 2nd Master Stalfos until the 4th one not taking any damage? That's really hard! :(
    Kronoan 19 Jun 2022 07:38
    Never mind! I got it, even though it was really hard!

    Its no so hard... Just need to memorize the right rooms to go

    Holy crap this one is annoying. Just so much stuff in the way on the path. Thank you Roc feather for helping avoid so many hits on the way to the last room and to heck with the helmet enemies that wanted to camp the stairs to the last location.

    After beating Stalfos in the 3rd encounter, you can play the Mambo song to get back to the entrance that is close to the room with the 4th encounter, which reduces the number of screens and enemies that you have to go through.

    Jesus, this was hard. Not because of the traveling between rooms, but the Master Stalfos fights themselves.
    The key to crumpling the dude is not getting too far away from him, or else he leaps at you. Good luck dodging that lol.

    Here's what I did:
    - Charge up sword (holding it in front of you northwards)
    - Maintain mid-range so he doesnt leap at you.
    - Dart in and out to bait him into a slash.
    - After he misses, poke him with sword.
    - Bomb.

    Remember to play your Ocarina after fight #3 to avoid a few enemy-filled rooms!
    Good luck friends, you'll need it.

    Actually pretty easy, done first try. In each fight when he first drops down, sit on the left wall and wait for him to jump. Circle around all the way to the right wall, charge your sword facing left and line it up with his jump so your sword collides with his head. Rinse and repeat. Also, make sure not to set your bomb to B during this challenge or it will disqualify you.

    master stalfos is incredibly easy.

    - charge a spin before he lands.
    - be to the right of his shadow when he lands.
    - release the spin as soon as he hits the ground.
    - place a bomb
    - back up just enough to not get hit by the bomb yourself
    - charge another spin
    - release the spin as soon as he gets up, he goes down again
    - repeat

    master stalfos should never get a chance to attack even once.

    also not sure what @domek97 is talking about with the bomb set on B disqualifying you, i had bomb set to B the entire time and got the achievement no problem.

    Did you already have bomb set to b when the challenge started, or did you set it to b during the challenge?
