The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

Most of you have probably beaten TP by now, so I thought there should be a discussion about the endless sidequests and extras in the game.

First, have you beaten the Cave of Ordeals? It's probably the hardest thing in the game, and I would even consider it a dungeon. As you know, you get fairy's potion when you beat it; I was slightly disappointed with the prize, but proud that I had conquered the challenge.

Second, what's the largest Hylian Bass that you've caught? I've fished for a few hours, and I haven't caught any Bass bigger than 21 inches. I think I caught a 25-inch catfish, though.

Third, did you get the Magical Armor? If you haven't, it sucks. I've tried to use it in a couple of situations, but it just blows. I've heard a rumor that it was put in the game as a way to lampoon the PS3. The armor costs 598 rupees, and when you wear it, it drains rupees incredibly quickly. Although you're supposedly invincible while wearing it. When your rupees run all the way down, you're forced to walk around slowly, as you would in the iron boots. So the theory goes, that Nintendo took a jab at the PS3 by putting this worthless overpriced piece of **** in the game.

Fourth, have you collected all 60 Poe's souls? I have approximately 20 last time I checked.

I heard getting all 60 Poe Souls grants you unlimited Rupees. That Magical Armor doesn't sound too shabby anymore, now does it? (could be a false rumor though)

I'm currently at 59 Poe Souls and i just can't find that last one!

I have caught all of the golden bugs though

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

I have completed all the mini quests, that is to say:

-Cave of Ordeals (1 time around, apparently if you do it twice, the postman is waiting outside)
-All 60 poe souls, which took absolutely forever (Also you get a 200 rupee everytime you go inside Jovani's)
-All the Golden Bugs
-Both levels of the Star Minigame
-Talking to all the cats
-Played the roll minigame to get the Frog Lure
-In Hyrule Field North, there is a cave where you have to solve the block puzzle, yeah, did that
-The Goron Mines side quest
-Got the sinking lure
-Caught the Legendary Hylian Loach
-Collected all of the Heart Pieces

There are so many, but that is all I can think of at the moment. The only thing I haven't really done is played the Roll-o Minigame all the way through until Hena gives you unlimited rupees when you come in. Seems a pretty much waste of time after you've beaten the game, then again, you can say that you've done it...

As for the magic armor, wish that I had gotten sooner, would have come in handy, it only seems to be helpful in the Cave of Ordeals.

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

I got the armor, I had 45 or so Poe's souls, and I got to floor 44 of the Cave of Ordeals twice.

I also got all of the heart pieces and all of the bugs.

You do get unlimited rupees. You just have to go talk to Giavoni (That the guys name? I can't remember) And he'll fill your wallet whenever you talk to him.

I'm currently at 59 Poe Souls and i just can't find that last one!

It doesn't rely give you infinite rupees the cat game me on silver (200 rupees) and nothing more even if I game back after saving and quitting the game.

I always get all the lures, poes and the Hylian Loach because it's so easy in TP. I only got it 3 times in OoT and once in MQ.

The poes are easy to find is you comb the areas one at a time and don't take poes from areas if you don't have the needed equipment to get them all.

As a game TP is a little too easy for HC Zelda fans. Hope the next ones aren't. But then again the level of difficulty dropped dramatically after they went from 2D to 3D games in the series. And after that even the Minish Cap wasn't as difficult as the 2D ones before were. Shame.

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

I got to the last lvl in the Cave of Ordeals, but I couldn't beat it... It might've had something to do with the fact that I went in with no bombs or arrows, lol. I was just board out of my mind at the time.....

I haven't gotten all 60 poes, (I'm around 45 now) but I think that when you do, any time you go to the guys house, he gives you 200 Rupees. Also, I think the magic armour is great (providing you have the money)

It gives you access to unlimited rupees in that you can refill anytime you want by talking to Jovani's cat. Your wallet still runs out like normal though.

Still, that's a useful feature to have around. Before going into a dungeon, get 999 rupees and save them for the boss battle (even though most bosses are way too easy to even bother )

I think that Zant is the earliest boss you could do that on, unless you really liked sequence breaking.

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

I've caught the HYLIAN BASS, played the minigame at the Hidden Village, gotten all of the fishing lures and gotten the failworthy armor but I have yet to beat the Cave of Ordeals. >8| I've been super-close to beating it though!

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

The thing about the cave of ordeals, is that you should go when you are full stocked of everything. Including potions, faries, and a full wallet (for your magic armor). If you turn into wolf-form when you have completed a floor, you can sometimes dig up hearts and rupees, which help out A LOT. I try to save atleast two potions by the last floor, because you will need it. Also, you should try to go when you have 20 hearts, but I'm sure 17 is fine (thats what I had).

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

Haha, oh man... I remember I was like...on the LAST FLOOR of the Cave of Ordeals, and I had 12 or so hearts left. I had purple Chu jelly with me, and since I wanted to see what it would do, I drank some. Bad idea. It took me down to about 6 hearts, and I still had to take care of the three Iron Knuckles.

I have absolutely no idea how I did it, but I managed to kill all three of them with barely any hearts left. It was a pleasant surprise.

Re: The whistles and bells of Twilight Princess

What do you guys think, what's the best way to beat the last lvl of the cave of ordeals? I think that the best way to fight the first form is to throw bombs at them until their armour breaks off, but after that they get so fast, and I had a really hard time, any ideas?

Try to get the three (or four if its your second time) as far apart as you can. Often if you get far enough away, they won't leave theat corner of the room until you come closer. That way you can deal with them one at a time. Also, try to save at least a fairy or potion till the last floor. The ball and chain might work to dislodge thier armor, but I can't remember (I haven't done the cave of ordeals since I beat it the second time last year).
