I see "Water of Life" listed under "The Legend of Zelda." I don't remember that item being in that game.
I looked at what is supposed to be a text dump from the game http://www.zeldalegends.net/files/emulation/dumps/zelda1/z1dump(evilgiegue).txt
...and I didn't see "water of life." Is this item really in LoZ?
Thanks. --Interdigital 20:31, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure the potions in that game are refered to as 'Water of Life' somehwere, but I can't remember where exactly. I thought it was in-game, but perhaps it's just in the manual. Also, that link doesn't work. Happyjoe5 09:56, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Alas, I tried to update this a couple of days ago, but accidentally closed my Firefox tab. The summary of my update?
1. I've corrected the link, thanks :)
2. The only references to "WATER" in the in-game text is for the waterfall.
3. The only references to "POTION" in the in-game text are "LIFE POTION" and "2ND POTION."
4. Finally, you were right - I've found "Water of life" on page 25 of the manual, and it has the photos of Life Potion (or "blue water" in the manual) and 2nd Potion ("red water" in the manual, which turns blue with one sip).
NOTES: (1) These are very different from the red, blue, and green potions (or water) that appear in other Zelda games, as the red and blue water in this game restore hearts only - there was no magic meter to restore in the first game, right? (2) "WATER OF LIFE" is in the in-game text in Zelda II: Adventure of Link.
It would probably be more accurate to list the "LIFE POTION" (blue water) and "2ND POTION" (red water) instead of "Water of Life", but I'll save that for another day. :) --Interdigital 01:25, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Types of Items
This page is lacking a lot of items, but before I mess with it I want to confirm what types of items we want here. Should it be all items that can be in Link's inventory (including bottleable things like Hot Spring Water, quest items like the Essences of Nature, and trading items like the Yoshi Doll?). I think it would be good to include all those things.
Also, should we count things like Rock Sirloin in MM and the Moon Pearls in FSA that can only be carried and are never in Link's proper inventory? If we include those things we need to draw a line somewhere so that bushes and pots don't get listed in every game.--FierceDeku 02:12, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
