Well to be honest, i think its a hard sidequest for just a bottle.Is it really that hard a feat? Since I compulsively collect everything I can in Zelda games, I've always viewed it as something you just do.
I mean the poes only appear during the night at particular places and they appear for a couple of seconds, so you have to react quick and make sure that you don't miss is. manual shooting from your horse isn't easy especialy when you shout from the lef and right side of the horse while moving.
till now i have only collected 8 big poes on my very first account.
I already collected all other things like 100 gold skulltullas and all heart pieces. Because normally i have the habit to 100% fully complete the game especialy with zelda games.
But i only quit bothering to get the 4th bottle for some reason.
Its quite a suprise, i expected more "no" awnsers from other members.
