Shock arrows are a type of ammunition in Zelda Breath of the Wild. They’re great against enemies with a weakness to lightning. Sadly, they can be a bit hard to obtain. During the Divine Beast of Vah Ruta quest, you’ll have to get 20 shock arrows, which are scattered around Ploymus Mountain. There’s an extremely dangerous Lynel there. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to get shock arrows in Zelda Breath of The Wild.
Shock arrows in Divine Beast of Vah Ruta quest
You’ll need the Zora armor to get up Ploymus Mountain and start collecting the arrows. The first dozen or so will be scattered on the slopes, while the rest are in the arena where the vicious Lynel awaits. You won’t be able to defeat it at this point. Your best bet is to sneak around the arena, get behind it and pick up the rest of the arrows. If you have a sneaking potion, now is the time to use it. Be sure you take a picture of the Lynel – you can cash it in back at Zora’s Domain.
Where to find lightning arrows
If you need shock arrows for some other purpose, you can buy them from several vendors. One of them is in Gerudo Town, in the southwest corner of the map. Once you’ve got the outfit that lets you enter Garudo City, just stroll up to the bazaar and look for a merchant dealing in arrows, on the western side of the market. She offers lightning arrows as well, and asks for 140 rupees for a bundle of 10. If you’re having cash issues, be sure to check out our rupee farming guide.
