The new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is by far, the most ambitious Zelda game ever made by Nintendo. So far, it has sold more than 1.5 million copies, both in digital and physical media combined. The game brings a sort of nostalgia to the previous game in a lot of different ways. It encompasses a great adventure in a huge landscape with a ton of side quests available to explore.
Speaking of side quests, every now and then a player’s attention will get sidetracked and end up doing an entirely different quest from the original. However, in the entirety of the game, currency can help a player in more than one way. Because of this, it is quite important to obtain as much Rupees, the game’s currency, as possible. And we have one sure fire way to get you earning at least 280 Rupees per minute.
To start earning, it is best to prepare for your journey. Since various environments have different effects on Link’s health, it is best to be prepared. In this case, our destination is the wild Tabantha Tundra; the northwest section of the map. It will be cold, so best wear something like a pair of Snow Boots or a Warm Doublet. Another thing worth remembering is to make sure your inventory is full before you travel.
After fast traveling to the Tabantha Tundra’s Hebra Tower, make your way all the way down to Pondo’s Lodge. Here you will find a tall man with white fluffy hair and a moustache to match. The easiest way of locating him is to look for a bunch of totem poles.
Once you have located Pondo, approach him and he will ask you if you want to play Snowball Bowling. After paying 20 Rupees, he will let you roll two giant snow balls. You will then use these snow balls to knock down the totem poles at the bottom of the hill. Now this is where it gets pretty interesting.
To earn more, make sure you get a strike. Because this will get you a Gold Rupee which is equivalent to 300 Rupees. A spare earns you a Silver Rupee while knocking down nine or eight pins will get you Purple and Red Rupees, respectively.
Another trick that you can do is stand behind Pondo and a bit slightly to the right. From here, just drop the snow ball and let it roll. Most of the time, it will roll along the center of the alley giving you a bigger chance of hitting a strike. If you’re still confused, check out this quick guide from a Youtuber named TJ.
Again, you have to make sure your inventory is full so Pondo will reward you with Rupees instead of items or weapons.
