    Is there a way to get the silver arrow early?
    TheMysticalOne 22 May 2023 19:10
    You can leave after getting the hammer. Super bombs available after misery more and ice palace are complete.
    LeftyGuitar 22 May 2023 20:42
    Ah, ok.
    FBernkastelKues 25 May 2023 12:20
    Apparently you also need your sword tempered, it wouldn't show up until after I got it.
    TheMysticalOne 25 May 2023 12:22
    That *shouldn't* be a requirement. Would be interesting in a save state with master sword (outside the boss room) that exhibits that behavior.
    TheMysticalOne 25 May 2023 12:54
    I fixed a bug early on where if the little mini helmasaurs were alive in the prior room, it'd reset the achievement upon entering the boss room, but that was the morning after the revision launched.

    Found a small error from when I fixed the above issue, but it *shouldn't* have caused an issue unless something was very coincidentally equal to 0x92.

    I was talking about the super bomb showing up in the shop, not the challenge indicator.
    TheMysticalOne 25 May 2023 17:11
    Oh. Nevermind, then.
    PaddyW 27 May 2023 21:21
    To get the big bomb, you need to clear the two dungeons AND save the smith, but it's not necessary to temper the sword.

    He will die in a single hit to a silver arrow! Recommend doing this at the same time as damageless.

    How do you get into misery mire without the bird.
    TheMysticalOne 30 Mar 2024 19:00
    Note: you can just leave the Palace of Darkness after you get the hammer.
    randresen77 30 Mar 2024 19:50
    that doesnt give you the option to use the flute to go to misery mire. you have to finish palace 1 to be able to use the flute.
    TheMysticalOne 30 Mar 2024 19:53
    Just progress to other places. You'll be able to at some point.. We're not idiots.
