Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Hints, Tips
- Fake Link rewards and Windwaker spoof
- In the northwestern area, sail to the traveling ship, and climb aboard. Talk to the "Doppleganger", and he will tell you that his boat's name is "The Prince of Red Lions". His uniform also resembles Link's, but with a few tweaks. He will then take you as an apprentice and challenge you to a fight. Fight him, then leave, and re-enter the ship. Fight him again, but inflict more hits than last time. Exit, and re-enter again. Fight him, and get as many hits as possible. Under 100 hits will earn you a spoil (for example, Pearl Necklace, Princess Crown, etc.). Get more than 100 hits to get a Heart Container. Try to get 150 hits or more.
- Easy Rupees
- When traveling the ocean, you may encounter a jellyfish-like creature that hovers high above your ship. When this happens, shoot it. Each hit is worth one Rupee. After approximately ten to fifteen hits, it will multiply, giving you double the Rupees if you aim correctly. Once it multiplies, the copies will begin to descend into the sea. Keep them afloat by shooting and hitting them.
Once it is open, take all of the ship parts and treasures you have doubles of to the Collector on Mercay Island. This is an easy way to get Rupees. However, do not take your Pink Coral there. There is a travelers ship filled with men with telescopes. A person there will buy the Coral for a lot more than the Collector.
- Salvage Locations
- While sailing on your ship, you will encounter enemy pirate ships. If you destroy all the ships in the group, the last ship destroyed will leave a red "X" on your map. This is where you can salvage for treasure.
