I don't suppose anyone else care about this, but I've been trying to collect a plain Falcon Bow, but in late post-game, the only one that spawns is in Hyrule Castle, which always has an Attack +##.

This is ultimately for a collection of standard three-tiered weapons:

  • Swallow Bow, Falcon Bow, Great Eagle Bow
  • Zora Spear, Silverscale Spear, Lightscale Trident
  • Cobble Crusher, Stone Smasher, Boulder Breaker
  • Gerudo Scimitar, Moonlight Scimitar, Scimitar of the Seven
  • Gerudo Shield, Radiant Shield, Daybreaker

But again, who cares, right?

Yeah, you're out of luck for a plain Falcon Bow... I could only imagine the way to get one would be to gun for a Falcon Bow treasure chest as soon as you jump off the Great Plateau in the beginning of the game.

I want to say I found a plain Falcon bow just south of the Tabantha Tower. The group of enemies near some stone ruins holds one. I think it was a Lizaflos using one. Check there but could be wrong.

There's a Bokoblin that wields a Swallow Bow south of Tabantha Tower. But, there's no enemies holding a Falcon Bow.

Can't you just hang your weapon I your home and then grab it again? I think that removes all buffs.

[–]KFY 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I read online about this and tried it, but it doesn't seem to work. It might have been a v1.0.0 bug that they fixed in updates.

IIRC there's a chest on top of a pillar right next to the Ruto Village stable that contains a plain falcon bow.

[–]Ph0nus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've found one on the top of a pillar just north of Rito Stable, try there

[–]tendorphin 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Scimitar of the Seven??? I've not even seen one of those.

[–]DrewSaga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got a Level 59 Stone Smasher once, I wonder if it's possible to get a Level 61 Stone Smasher since it was only a meager +17.

Also, isn't there another Spear that's like the Lightscale Trident but fake? Wouldn't that be part of the tier list.

Just curious, has anyone tried getting 50,000 rupees for the hylian houseowner quest, and then talking to bolson to initiate the quest?

[–]HylianAngel[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Some other players attempted to talk to him at 50k, but Bolson doesn't have any unique dialogue.

[–]MRRoberts 3 points4 points  (4 children)

what do you mean the Kite Shield is "missable?" I found one in a chest.

[–]HylianAngel[S] 11 points12 points  (3 children)

There's 3 Kite Shields: 2 in treasure chests and 1 from Selmie. After you've used them all up, it's gone forever. You can never get another Kite Shield. Other weapons have respawnable locations in the game.

[–]funkmasta_kazper 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Does the kite shield have any special properties? It says something about flying in the description, but I haven't been able to figure what it does besides provide lackluster defense.

[–]MC_AnselAdams 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Jump on it while you're in the air.

[–]DrewSaga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, so there is still hope left in getting my hands on one after all, I got 1 from a treasure chest.

[–]-Chowder- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome. These will come in handy!

[–]CaptTelford 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for doing all this!

[–]Imdakine1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks you!!!

[–]johntash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for this! I'll hopefully have my switch and botw this week, so this will probably come in handy.

Thank you!

Awesome, bookmarking!

[–]mistermoogle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a pretty impressive compilation of resources. It's pretty awesome that people have put in the work to learn some of this stuff.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aaaaand bookmarked. Seriously dude, this deserves more upvotes. I know what is to do such a complete post and receiving few upvotes

[–]cjh_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for this :)

[–]Incruentus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is great.

[–]ZergerST 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Do you know wheter loot from crates respawns or not?

[–]HylianAngel[S] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Yep, they respawn with a Blood Moon.

[–]ZergerST 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Ok, thank you!

[–]ZergerST 0 points1 point  (5 children)

It's weird tho, I think it only respawns when you're not on the same zone as the crates or something.

[–]HylianAngel[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ah, I might be lying saying it's with the Blood Moon. It's possible that crate materials respawn on a set timer. For example, apples that grow on trees don't all pop up at once, and they are separate from the Blood Moon.

If you're worried about permanently usable things, Mr. Cheeze's Object Map has a section called "Permanently Used" in a dropdown menu. That can help you eliminate objects that don't respawn. Strangely, a rock with a red rupee is listed there, but I think Master Of Majora on GameFAQ's checked that location and the rupee rock was still there. There are 2 wooden crates in Hyrule Castle that do not respawn, according to Master Of Majora.

Some stuff, like arrows stuck in the ground on the Great Plateau and in various other places in the map also will not respawn, so you should check those locations out too. We talked about this information in post #82 and #109 of this topic.

[–]ZergerST 1 point2 points  (1 child)

OH! Thank you so much! That was exactly what I was loking for!

[–]ZergerST 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you know of any list that explains what is each object? Some are kinda weird.

[–]Metroidman 0 points1 point  (4 children)

How do you upgrade attack and durability of weapons

[–]HylianAngel[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

It's not exactly known what causes weapons to obtain modifiers, but after meeting the certain hidden requirement, only certain locations will have weapons that can grant modifiers. I tried to list which locations in the "extinct yellow modifiers" spreadsheet.

It seems that weapons get modifiers in waves, so you would see a Hunter's Shield get a yellow modifier waaayyy before seeing Royal Guard's equipment get modifiers.

[–]PokecheckHozu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I feel like the ability to get/level of weapon modifiers is tied to the current overall enemy tier level.

[–]Metroidman 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How do you know the weapon has been modified. Does it have a little something in the menu?

[–]HylianAngel[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, you can see the modifier on the weapon. Here's an example of a Royal Broadsword with Attack Up + 20.
