What’s up, everybody? Once again my name is Matt and today I’m going to be showing you how to farm for Rupees in the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ll be showing you three different methods, two of which will earn you plenty of rupees for anything you need in the game, and the last one is just something you can do to get some extra rupees if you’re in a pinch. Before we begin though let’s go over some gear that you’re going to need. For the first method you’ll want to have activated the Hebra tower, and because this region is in a tundra you’ll need something to keep Link warm. At least level two cold protection is required to survive in this region. For the second method you’ll want to have a long-range bow.
The swallow bow is a good choice here since it has a long range and you can find them pretty easily in the Tabantha region. On top of that you’ll want some wood and something to light it with like a great flame blade. This method takes place in the Faron region so you’ll probably want to have that Sheikah tower activated as well. Once you have those tools, you’re ready to go.
So let’s start with the first method: the snow bowling mini game. This game can be found at Pondo’s Lodge right off of Hebra Tower. Here you can find NPC named Pondo and he’ll let you play a snow bowling mini game. The game itself costs 20 rupees to play but if you get a strike you earn 300 rupees, and if you get a spare you learn 100 rupees. At first that might seem difficult but there is a sweet spot in the mini game that if you toss the snowball off of you can pretty much guarantee a strike, or at least a spare every single time. This method does have the possibility to net you around 25,000 rupees per hour which is pretty good. However due to the fact that there is some minor amount of luck involved and not every bowl is guaranteed to give you a strike it might not be the best method for everyone. Not to mention the mini game itself might get a bit old after a while, so that brings us to method two.
For method two it’s probably best if you’ve explored the Faron region a little bit because you’ll need to find this specific location on the map. This location is perfect because there is a nearby overpass of rocks which will protect us from the elements. And it just so happens to be right next to the spawn of one of the legendary dragon spirits Farosh.
So the idea here is that we’ll set up a camp fire underneath this overpass and just use it to constantly sleep until morning, which coincidentally is when the dragons spawns. As soon as it spawns, we’ll use our bow to shoot it and get some dragon horns. Dragon Horns are worth 300 rupees a pop, which makes them great for farming. And thankfully these items do not disappear when you sleep. Meaning you can farm them for a while before you go and actually collect them.
Plus the game auto saves every time you sleep at a campfire, meaning that if something bad does happen, you should be able to reload your saved without losing too much progress. It’s important to make sure you’re hitting the horn of the dragon. If you hit something else you may end up with the dragon scale or a dragon fang which don’t sell for nearly as much. Once you finish a lengthy farming session, collect all the drops then bring them to any store in Hyrule. You’ll get the same price anywhere, so sell away and enjoy your newfound life of wealth and riches. With this method you could technically have the potential to make around 54,000 rupees per hour, which makes it a little over two times faster than method one. And now this brings us to our final method. Now this really isn’t meant to be a rupee farming method, just more of a general tip. Along your adventure you’ve no doubt collected several gemstones along the way, so if you want to make the most profit from these gemstones you’ll need to travel the Goron City.
Once you complete the divine beasts Vah Rudania, a new NPC will be walking around Goron City. She’s a Gerudo lady in search of gemstones. If you talk to her, she will offer to buy your gemstones in bulk of 10 for anywhere from twenty to forty percent more than normal shops will offer. What she’s buying depends on the randomness of the game so this isn’t the best or most reliable method to farm for rupees. But if you need some quick cash and you have 10 or more of all the gemstones it’s a great option to use.
That being said, those are some of the best methods to grind for rupees in this game. I am sure there are others out there, but between these three you should find something that works for you. Anyways, I think that’s going to do it for this video. So if you guys enjoyed it a like/rating would be greatly appreciated. You want to see more of my videos consider subscribing.
