Steps

  • 1. Get found by the Bokoblins with bows.
  • 2. Move away from the enemy until they cannot reach you.
  • 3. Collect the arrows stuck in the ground.
  • 4. Save and load when the arrows no longer stick to the ground.
  • 5. Return to Step 3.

Go southwest of the Great Plateau Tower, move away from the two red Bokoblins with Bows until you are out of arrow's reach. They will continue to shoot arrows at you, so you just need to collect the arrows stuck in the ground.

Arrows Are Also Falling Around Bokoblin

These two red Bokoblins may have been practicing shooting, and there are many arrows lying around the area, you could pick them up while you are at it.

Need To Complete The Trial

Lizalfos Dropping Fire Arrow

Fire Arrows drop when you defeat the Lizalfos with bows at the lookout and hideout of the Abandoned North Mine in Goron City. You can get about 20 Fire Arrows at once. Visit there whenever the Red Moon comes.

Easier With Ice Weapons

Fire-Breath Lizalfos are vulnerable to ice, so a Frostblade or similar weapon can defeat them with a single blow.

A Bokoblin and a Moblin in the hideout north of Mt. Hebra and on the north peak of Hebra will drop Ice Arrow x 5. It is recommended to head there from the Shada Naw Shrine.

Convenient To Buy In Stores

There are few places where you can get Ice Arrow in large quantities, so it is better to buy them at Zora's Domain, which will cost you more money but will ensure that you can get them quickly.

How To Get Shock Arrows

Mostly Dropped By Lynel

Many Lynel, including the Lynel in the Ploymus Mountain, are equipped with Shock Arrows. Therefore, if you hunt Lynel in each area, you will naturally have plenty of Shock Arrows.

▲ The Lynel in the Ploymus Mountain, east of Zora's Domain, drops 10 Shock Arrows. It's an easy place to fight as it doesn't turn into silver even near the end of the game.

Better To Buy In Stores

Same as the Ice Arrows, there are few places where you can get a large quantity of them, so it is better to buy them in Gerudo Town or other places, which will cost you more money but will ensure that you can get them quickly.
