It is a square area where in the background on the right there are 3 Bokoblins, they have their weapons leaning on a log as usual, if we have good resistance it is as easy as running and grabbing weapons before them, bombs are also very useful for eliminating the enemies.

The Bokoblins are in elevated areas, 3 of them in a structure that we can climb by killing the Fire Chuchu and taking advantage of the fire to ascend with the parabeil, using the power of the wind beast or breaking the bridge ropes using a bow . The 4 bokoblin is in the classic archer turret located to the right of the structure. In this level we get 2 bows, it is good that we try to get arrows, dodging the shots of the two archers, a shield and sword and a two-handed club. In the boxes above in the Bokoblins structure we have more arrows.

Level 3

Enemies: Normal Chuchu x1 – Fire Chuchu x6.

This level is very simple, with the bombs we will quickly kill the enemies, the important thing is to know that on both sides of the room we have chests in elevated positions on wooden platforms that we can burn by shooting a fire arrow, taking advantage of the fire of the chuchus we can set our arrows on fire to get them. In one we find a Boomerang and in the other Fire Arrows x5.

The two Moblins are patrolling around the skull, inside we have the 3 blue bokoblins, the skull, like many that we have already seen in the game, has fire points that we can cut using an arrow so that it falls inside and the explosive barrels explode, thereby We will have almost eliminated the 3 blue bokoblins, be careful that the fire can burn the objects they leave us, there are several food items and the weapons they carry. We can easily eliminate the red Moblins using sneak attacks or using the paralyzer.

Level 6

Level 9

Sword Shrine Level 9 (easy)

Enemies: Octorocks x2 – Electric Invocantis x1.

The only problem that this room poses is in the electric Invocantis, be careful that it is the same as the previous one, islets with water, so the Invocantis projectiles are dangerous, we already know that by covering ourselves with them fixed we will return the projectile, to the Invocantis, with arrows on the head and weapons like spears, when he is within reach we will quickly get rid of him, and as we start on the left there is a chest (non-metallic) that we have to push a little to open, it contains wooden arrows x10.

Level 10

Lizalfo x1 – Lizalfo black x2.

As we begin we find a bridge and the normal Lizalfo armed with a bow in the background, if we kill him with an accurate shot to the head we will not alert the black Lizalfos that are covering the stairs on the sides and we can use the sneak attack to take a good part of their life. Thanks to the electric scepter that we took from the Summoners in the previous level, we will leave them without weapons to finish them off quickly.

Level 11

Sword Shrine Level 11 (easy)

Enemies: Red Bokoblin x4 – Blue Bokoblin x3 – Black Bokoblin x1 – Black Moblin x1.

At the top a black Moblin awaits us, be very careful with his blows and try to finish him off quickly using everything we have at hand, electric/fire arrows, paralyzer and our best weapons. Before entering the portal, if we jump towards the platform where the bokoblin archers were on the right as we came, we will find a couple of boxes and another chest in the watchtower that contains wooden arrows x10.
