The Bow, you’ll shoot your eye out!

After gathering various items in the the game, your are finally ready to go to the first dungeon.  Yes, we could have gotten a potion at this point. But, it’s the first dungeon, come on, you can do it! An update on the potions – I have almost completed a unique casting technique to make the bottles. I am just waiting on a special material to arrive to make casting it even easier.

Back to the dungeon – it’s called the Eagle and is located in what seems to be a dead Deku tree.

In its depths you will find one of the most iconic items of the Zelda series, the bow. It appears in almost all the Zelda games. In this timeline it appears in A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening. However, the bow in Link’s Awakening exists in a magical world which is the dream of the Wind Fish, whereas the bow from A Link to the Past looks very much like the game manual image of the bow from the original Legend of Zelda. Is it the same bow?

It appears to be. I designed the bow based on this linked history.

Stringing the bow is very easy to accomplish. See directions here.

If your still lost on the Zelda Timeline make sure you watch Zelda The Complete Story!
