    One of my favorite things about Majora's Mask is farming for money and items when I reset the time cycle. It's underrated, it's a running theme of the series. The Legend of Zelda is a series about cycles, repetitive actions. You need a fairly high iq to appreciate it.

    There isn't even much of it outside of the Second Quest, and the "hint" is usually that you need to get to the other side of that wall, and you can tell based on the map that there could be a room there.

      Only 2 dungeons required that. Level 8 is under the most obvious tree on the map, and you get an infinite-use candle in 7. An npc in Level 8 also tells you where Level 9 is, so it's pretty obvious where you need to bomb.

                Most Links are not from Hyrule.

                According to the manual, NES Link is from somewhere else. But that's just the manual so it may not be true.
                IIRC Kokiri Forest is outside of Hyrule technically.
                WW Link is from the Great Sea which is above Hyrule I guess but it's not Hyrule.
                TP Link is definitely not from Hyrule and they even make a big deal about him going to Hyrule for the first time. He lives right on the border though.
                Skyward Sword Link is apparently from before there even was a Hyrule.
                And Spirit Tracks Link is from New Hyrule.

                It takes just a few minutes of aimless wandering to max out your rupees. And you should be going into a dungeon and just collecting rupees naturally. Then come out and buy the bigger ticket items.
                >You can't possibly afford the rings and the meat and whatnot simply with enemy drops.
                The meat is just 100 rupees (less in one shop). By the time you need it in fricking level 7 you should have maxed your rupees like 3 times over. The blue ring is really the only one that is even remotely close to being high price. And again, by the time you need it, you should have max rupees. Unless you just have to get it before level 3.

And if you don't like them that's fine, Zelda has a ton of games, you can find one that will fit your taste. You should try BotW and TotK, in those you have a big open world to explore but to be efficient in combat you will need to farm weapons and materials... Wait

    Not quite. In the overworld only flat stone walls facing south and bordered by at least two other (not necessarily flat) stone walls are able to be bombed and you can check them two at a time. Dungeons generally have either very suspicious gaps in them (i.e. one "empty" space surrounded by 8 rooms) or point in a given direction pretty hard. In all, the number of suspicious places to check is surprisingly low. I wish they'd refined this into a system where there was genuinely no element of guesswork as to where you need to check, without totally giving it away like they do now.

    I tried to beat this game swordless without save states, but the fricking darknuts made me b***h out and use them. The only thing that can damage them are bombs and you're at the mercy of RNG once you lay them down since, when the bomb goes off, they have to be facing away from where you were facing when you placed the bomb in order to hurt them. After about 5 times of going back to refresh my bombs, I just said frick it.
    Still beat it in the end, though. Had to restart my entire run after making the mistake of getting the fire rod during my first attempt. Pro-tip: its fire hurts you and makes the rod practically useless.

    This game really needs you to draw your own map, and the guide recommends that much. But I definitely would have not been able to finish it as I got stuck finding the final two dungeons I had not yet completed before Ganon, nor would I have been able to finish the final one (Death Moutain) since I didn't find the silver arrows on my own. Got as far as facing Ganon without the silver arrows. I don't remember anything saying you needed silver arrows. Even with a guide, it took me many, many hours to find them.
