Quivers are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2][3]

Location and Uses

Quivers are bags in which Link can carry Arrows for use with a Bow. When a Bow is obtained, it usually comes with its respective Quiver, though this is usually not explicitly stated or shown.[4]

Quivers can also be upgraded, thereby increasing the capacity of Arrows Link can carry at a time.[5] In most cases, these upgrades can be obtained in any order; therefore, the first upgrade obtained will be a medium-sized Quiver, while the next upgrade will a larger Quiver. The Quiver upgrades shown below are listed in the order which they are typically obtained.

In earlier games, such as A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening, Quivers were absent; Link's Arrow capacity was instead increased by the blessings of other characters, such as Venus and the Mad Batter.[6]

Ocarina of Time

The first Quiver in Ocarina of Time is obtained with the Fairy Bow as the Dungeon Item of the Forest Temple. Its two upgrades can be obtained in any order.

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Link's Arrow capacity can be upgraded by approaching two of the Great Fairies and receiving their blessings. Although these upgrades do not come in the form of Items with names, they are represented onscreen by Link holding a Quiver above his head.

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, the first Quiver is obtained with the Bow. While this first Quiver is not mentioned in the onscreen text,[4] nor does it physically appear in the Collection menu, it can be presumed to exist based on how the Bomb Bag is treated similarly.

Skyward Sword

Skyward Sword introduced Small Quivers which, when placed in the Pouch, increase the amount of Arrows Link can carry.[7] Small Quivers are in unlimited supply; once Link has obtained the Bow, he can purchase as many as he wishes from the Gear Shop in Skyloft Bazaar for 150 Rupees apiece. Another Small Quiver can be obtained from a Goddess's Treasure Chest in the Thunderhead. They can also be individually Upgraded in the Scrap Shop.[8]
