Return to Link’s House and you will find that Ravio’s shop has opened. Here, you can rent a variety of useful adventuring items from Ravio for a fee. After renting an item, you can use it forever… until you get a Game Over, at which point Ravio’s pal, Sheerow, will take the rented items off your unconscious body.
Here are the items you can rent:
|**Item Name**||**Item Description**||**Rent Fee**|
|Bombs||Blows up monsters and fragile objects||50 rupees|
|Bow||Shoot monsters and switches from afar||50 rupees|
|Sand Rod||Creates a line of pillars in the sand||Rented by Osfala|
|Tornado Rod||Hover in the air and stun monsters||20 rupees (discount)|
|Hammer||Pound monsters and objects||20 rupees (discount)|
|Hookshot||Grapple wooden objects and stuns foes||50 rupees|
|Boomerang||Collect rupees and stun foes from afar||50 rupees|
|Ice Rod||Freeze monsters and lava with ice||100 rupees|
|Fire Rod||Burn monsters and melt ice with fire||100 rupees|
For starters, rent the Hammer and Tornado Rod , which are needed to enter and complete the next two dungeons. If you have tons of rupees and are confident of your abilities, you can rent all the items! Besides the above, we recommend renting the Bombs and possibly the Hookshot . The Boomerang isn’t really useful for anything, while the Fire Rod and Ice Rod are nice, but don’t really open a lot of new roads.
With the Hammer in hand, you can enter the Tower of Hera by hammering the stumps blocking the entrance. Similarly, if you have the Tornado Rod, you can blow away the floor tiles in front of the House of Gales, revealing a secret switch, which opens the door to the dungeon when stepped on. Don’t forget to use Irene’s bell to get to the dungeon you want quicker!
